  • An end-of-day weight with a single blue/white whorl cane set amongst short lengths of white latticinio and twists and ribbons - predominantly in cobalt-blue & bright-green tones with just a hint of salmon & yellow.

  • A miniature closepack - only 44mm in diameter - or perhaps a “hybrid” closepack crossed with a scrambled ! A couple of canes are lying on their side, but to make up for that the little weight contains some unusual trefoil, quatrefoil, bundled rod and star canes plus a possibly unrecorded silhouette combination: a tiny red moth at the centre of...
