Hmmm.

I don't know the true name, but I would guess at "Flower In The Snow" (probably based on the Jack Allan "Flower In The Rain" for Caihness Glass, but with a snowy ground).

Looks like an unfinished (not facetted) Romance-Ruby to me (1997R01 attached). There is also a lilac version of it (1998R01) with a bi-coloured flower - this image showing the snowy ground better.

Yes Kev thats what I would have called it.
     Thanks Wuff, looks like you are correct. Wonder how this one escaped the faceting.

And, of course, had I checked a book or two, I would have realised that "Flower In The Snow" was a Colin Terris design for Caithness Glass (1993 CT-318).

Well its remarkable what we can miss because I looked right through the Caithness book and didn't even see it.(page 95).
 Thanks for the info.
