ID caithness designer please
« on: December 02, 2010, 12:10:03 AM »
I need help in ID this beautiful paperweight I have found marked Cathness MYRIAD Scotland with the hand inscription Rhh 782
I tried contacting Caithness and was advised it may be a Collin Terris 1978 or 2001.
I will post a photo tomorrow, but in the mean time can anyone ID this Rhh????


Thanks

Made/designed at Oban, see Scotland's Glass for variants/colours

There are two types:
1. Designed by Oban Studios (in many different colours) and first issued in 1978.
2. Designed by Colin Terris for the Royal Mint in 2001.

Now your weight is inscribed R ##782 (not Rhh: unlimited weights are signed by a character, identifying the year of manufacture, plus a running number). R stands for 1997 - so it cannot be the Colin Terris one.
