« on: July 09, 2008, 09:41:14 AM »

Now this is what I call ambitious....starting a 'flower in the rain' at £350!

Got the date wrong too, 1973 or 74. Perhaps this one precedes all other Caithness weights  8)

I think flowers in the rain are very underated.  One of my favourite Caithness and Deacons standard models.   And this is a very good example.

I like 'em too but I do think that seller has grossly over estimated what it should cost.

I have a pretty Deacons one in my cabinet.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
