Caithness Xanadu?
« on: February 18, 2012, 12:09:11 PM »
Just bought cheaply - wondered if its Caithness Xanadu - heavy glass with familair pattern in blues and purples - quite large with polished pontil.

Any help IDing welcomed as I am away from home and can't access my Caithness book.

It is indeed - and the most wonderful one I've ever seen - I just LOVE these colours!

Thanks Sue

I saw it in a charity shop window and thought is that Xanadu? I went in and bought it and since it is a different colour and shape to other pieces I have seen on the board threads I was wondering. I really like it - it is a big heavy well made peice - again since I don't have my book - is this classed as a studio peice?
