Set Of Colin Terris Goblets
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:18:37 AM »
I just noticed a set of four etched cartoon Jacobite scotsmen scene glasses in a job lot of glass I bought. I thought that these were of exceptional quality & craftmanship. Each of the glasses scenes is diffrent.

On inspection of the base I saw 'C Terris 1969 - Caithness'.

I thought Colin only did paperweights but having read up he set up an etching shop there in 68/69 but how rare would these goblets be & how rare is a signed piece?

Many thanks.
