Caithness pyramid?
« on: July 29, 2011, 11:15:24 AM »
I suspect this is a Caithness Pyramid; though it doesn't match the two varieties on Scotland's Glass, it does match this pretty well. Made in a mould but with a ground and polished pontil mark. What date would it be and who designed it if it is Caithness please?

Pipped to the post  :D

Pyramid forms have their own category and I thought yours matched. I guess a fair amount of variation exists in the detail. Link to Pyramids category

That's weird. I put Pyramid into the search and all I got were the Pyramid Twists 2003 and the 1982 ones, which don't match.  :huh:

Thank you

Search problem is due to the size of the database, site needs to be relocated to a more powerful server... but that is expensive so has to wait until money is available. In the meantime use the general site search (no images in results) or browse the categories within Glass Images.

Clocks also have a category here
