Hi,

After trailing around a very poor carboot sale today, this is all I came home with. But I can't find anything about "relections" from 1975.

Its in its original box, a bit battered but there, and its a lovely colour.

And here is the base with the writing,

 "Reflections, 237/500 Caithness 1975"

Do you think it may be by Colin Terris?

Hi Nadine,

many thanks for the conformation, it was only because it was dated that I thought it might be.

Its pretty and unusual.

Hi Ray,

Did they do a series of them around that time or is yours later than mine?

Hi Ray,

Found this one on ebay but its not by Colin, and it looks nothing like mine!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vintage-Caithness-Millefiori-Reflections-Paperweight-19_W0QQitemZ7415324309QQcategoryZ20QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


So maybe different designers did different Reflections?
