ID help please ribboned paperweight
« on: March 25, 2011, 04:34:18 PM »
This is the first paperweight I have bought as it always looked a bit of a minefield identifying them. This is approx 11cms in diameter and weighs 1.7 kgs.The base is flat and has 4 small pits in it, perhaps from polishing?.The clear glass contains ribbons of pink, white and brown together with what looks like spirals of tiny bubbles. All suggestions much appreciated.

Having looked at countless number of paperweights I am now wondering if this could be Caithness -Daydream design. If so would the unmarked base mean this was a second?

Yes, it does look like the "Daydreams" Caithness weight - I checked the example shown in the Scotlands Glass website.

For comments on Caithness weights that were not marked, see the recent thread:
