Whitefriars Caithness - or Murano?
« on: September 05, 2008, 05:57:40 AM »

I am no expert on Caithness, but isn't this paperweight more like a Murano?

No, you see it has to be Caithness because it has a top facet  ;D

My best guess is Fratelli Toso. I think I've seen FT with those canes.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
