From the photo browser in Facebook, I right clicked and chose "Copy Image Address" (on my mac) and then here on the forum selected the little mountain image button and pasted the copied image address into the field blank of the popup.

MacLellan's? These style mounts always looked like cream biscuits (i.e. cookies) to me. Whimsical.

Yes they always make me hungry



I believe Tim called them the O.R.E.O for awhile.

These are different from the OREO/Argyll style, which have prominent drone tops but also larger projecting mounts with no silver accent. Although merging the OREO drone tops with these projecting mounts might look quite good.

The style is more in line with a curling stone which is a very popular sport Worldwide first played in Scotland.
These mounts have 5 separate pieces,The mounts were made as an alternative to what is on offer at present.
