Caithness design / pattern ID help please
« on: April 21, 2013, 03:03:50 PM »
 have a Caithness paperweight, but I have not been able to determine the pattern or design name.

I have searched all through Caithness paperweights on Scotlandglass (Frank's site) and the nearest match I could find was Spectrum, but that weight was completely round. this paperweight is fluted (apologies if that is the incorrect terminology).

The weight is 6cm tall approx with a diameter of 6.5cm approx

Signed on the base: CAITHNESS and SCOTLAND only.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi

I think you will find this is called Flamenco released in 2004.

Caithness produced a range of glassware under this design name including vases, bowls and paperweights.

Best regards

Derek
