  • A pink fish with red iridescent tail and fins and a yellow eye...set on a green & white jasper ground encircled by 8 orange & white crimp canes each filled with tiny colourful canes. A pink/white H cane is set in the opaque colour ground. The polished base is virtually flat with a blue/white “PY Made in Scotland” sticker covering the...

  • A pink & purple-striped flower (with a complex cane forming the stamen), a bud and green leaves on a mottled dark amber ground with an outer garland of aventurine spokes. The flat, polished base bears a relatively rare “Highland” label in good condition (post 1977).

  • A colourful crown set with 6 radiating translucent cranberry staves - alternating with 3 pale-green and 3 opaque orange staves (each within different latticinio spirals) over a translucent yellow core, which meet at a lightly-ground “button” pontil in the flat base. The staves are set almost vertically, unlike the more common...

  • Reds, blues, greens, pinks, yellow, amber and lavender - they are all there in this colourful assortment of partial canes and twists, set over a think blue jasper ground an punctuated by a central and 8 peripheral bubbles. Signed underneath with an H cane - Harland, 1970s. Flat, polished base.

  • 5 millefiori clusters are set around a 12-toothed complex cog cane over a pale-blue jasper ground . The white-collared canes spaced around the perimeter are filled with amber, lavender, blue and green cogs. The glass has a greyish tint. The base has a deep concavity with a rough pontil mark. Probably Moncrieff period - 1940s/50s. Unfortunately there is no...

  • According to Peter Holmes, this type of weight is rare due to the fact that - during the time he was working with Paul Ysart at Caithness in the 1960s - the artist was trying to create a design in which the central motif and the garland “floated” above the colour ground. The problem was to ensure that the canes in the garland remained parallel...

  • A central cluster of ca. 20 close-packed canes is encircled by a border of complex white cog and corrugated canes in a 1-2-1 arrangement. In the perimeter garland white latticinio twists with copper aventurine alternate with white & purple complex canes over a deep-amber ground (appears black).The rough pontil mark and relatively flat base, plus the...

  • A red aventurine-bodied butterfly - its wings created out of pink & red flattened millefiori canes - encircled by a spaced garland of amethyst/white/green and ruby/white/green complex canes. Set on a translucent dark-blue mottled ground. Flat polished base.The amethyst cane directly below the insect contains a pink/white H cane. The canes really are...

  • A meticulous set-up on a pale-blue & white jasper ground. 6 green & orange "rays" - enhanced with aventurine - radiate out from a large, complex pink & white millefiori centre cane. Between them are dark-blue, white & pink complex canes.  Alternating  garland with canes in shades of amber, orange, yellow, pale-green and...

  • A deep-pink clematis with a copper aventurine stripe in each petal, centred by a white stardust millefiori cane. The tips of green leaves surround the flower, with another 4 darker-green leaves on the stem. Encircling the flower - which is set on a translucent mottled blue ground - is a spaced garland of alternating pink/white and amethyst/white complex...

  • Surrounding an orange/ruby-lined star centre cane are 2 rings of alternating canes. The first with green/white, yellow/white complex canes; the second with blue/white and orange/ruby-star canes (a repeat of the centre cane). Sections of white latticinio - enriched with copper aventurine - placed lengthwise around the perimeter, are separated by maroon/...

  • An unusual colourful scrambled weight containing - in addition to numerous whole and partial canes and aventurine inclusions - a roughly 1cm long, mirror-inverted PY cane. It probably got in there inadvertently, and is lying just above the opaque, mottled orange ground. The usual central air bubble with 8 further bubbles around the perimeter.Concave base...
