Help identifying Caithness design
« on: March 13, 2015, 09:52:14 PM »
I realize that Caithness made thousands of designs but I was hoping someone would recognize the design shown below.  The paperweight is marked CIIG and is 3 1/8" in diameter.

Well CIIG indicates it's a second, to me it looks like it was intended to be one of the varieties of the Myriad designs.

Thanks Nick and Alan.  I appreciate the quick response.   I would never have identified it from the Charlton Catalog.  My copy of the more recent Tamefox version is packed away temporarily. 

And, yes, I should have stated that I knew this was a second from the mark.
