Caithness paperweights unsigned with 'unselected' label
« on: August 27, 2011, 01:57:54 PM »
Hi all, firstly I always thought Caithness paperweights were marked on the base?
Picked this one up today reminds of Sarah Peterson's work maybe?
The label on the base is same as the Bolero dancer series paperweight that's says 'unselected'

A link here to the 'Bolero' with same label......

Someone who normally is pretty reliable 'informed' that these pieces were from the transition period when Dartington merged with them? and never went into production at Caithness?

OK, it's a bug in the board script which was supposed to have been fixed ages back...  if there are quote marks in a post then the report to mod interprets it as a Hacking attempt... and blocks it, which is good for the board's security but not too good for anyone wanting to report a post! I'll go find a fix. Thanks for the heads up Frank., :kissy:
