White Dove P/W ? ID = Caithness Wings of a Dove
« on: March 12, 2013, 11:00:25 AM »
Hi, trying to I/D this white dove paperweight with blue mottled pattern on the rear. The base is well finished polished and ground flat as with the viewing panel. 2.50 inches dia.
I have seen similar doves on some Caithness P/W but with this one it is not marked / signed. ?
Many thanks in advance
Malcolm

It's Caithness On The Wings Of A Dove see here

I'm guessing its a second but wasn't marked as such, the lower wing doesn't seem right.
Or maybe its just the angle of your photo and its a first quality not marked?
I have a Flower in the Rain that is not marked but for the life of me I cannot see any fault with it.

Regards
Nick
