This is one of a selection of vintage Scottish paperweights which I am listing in my shop - all with very fair prices attached to them.
The one was made by Selkirk Glass in the Scottish Borders. It has an early Selkirk glass label on the base.
It has an etched inscription as photographed - and is etched with the date 1980.
Selkirk Glass was set up by Peter Holmes and Ron Hutchison in 1977. Peter Holmes left in 2002. The company sadly closed in 2006 - so these beautiful weights are no longer being made.
This 1980 weight is an early one - made a couple of years after the company was founded.
It has a height of 2 3/8 inches and a diameter of 2 3/4 inches.
It is a very pretty weight - with a floor or cushion of sugar pink and white. The colours look gritty and textured. From the centre are a series of little fine fingers arranged in a wee swirl.
There is a clear faceted viewing panel on the front.
It is in good vintage condition with no chips or cracks (there is a very fine and faint scratch just over 1 mm in length to the side - you can hardly see it and need to get real close up to even spot it, but mentioned for full accuracy).
My price takes into account the very early issue of this fine Scottish weight, and the tiny blemish noted above.
