I have just acquired a Caithness paperweight, and I'm puzzled. It doesn't appear in my Caithness book, nor can I find it on the internet :? Can anyone help?
It is a lampworked weight called January Snowdrop, and it isn't
the Helen MacDonald 'Floral Year' version :shock:
Here's the weight http://i1.tinypic.com/mw85me.jpg
and this is the base http://i1.tinypic.com/mw87kj.jpg
so you can see it's definitely a Caithness. It is etched with the words, Snowdrop January Caithness Glass Scotland, and there is an engraved number, P2849
So why isn't it in the book? The only other thing I could think of is, maybe it's very new - just out for this month - but why can't I find it on the internet then? :?
And does anyone know who the lampwork was made by? Should I ask Allan?
