domhnall o broin query design?
« on: August 10, 2010, 03:12:02 AM »
Hi - just received this vase (bought from UK) which I thought I had seen previously identified as an early Caithness Domhnall o Broin  design. Now having received it - although very happy with it - I am unable to find any such reference to a similar vase. I have searched this site, Scotlands glass, and googled generally without success. Does anyone recognise this design and know anything of it please?  It is 19 cm or 7 1/2 inches high, 8cm or 3 inches at broadest point. and heavy for its size at 474grams or just over 1 lb.
Thanks JAK

Definitely looks like Caithness to me, but I'm no expert on O'Broin's designs for the company.

Definitely Caithness, but much more recent than O'Broin I think

What, you agree that "I'm no expert on O'Broin's designs"?  :24:
