Caithness label on S&W's.
« on: January 24, 2016, 01:12:29 PM »
Saw one of these yesterday with a Caithness label, the piece was quite cheap ( already have this one ) and the label was well stuck down, after looking up Caithness history I see they were bought up by Dartington in 2006, just wondered why they would stick a Caithness label on a Brierley / S&W's piece, seems a bit odd, ??? ??? ;D

I would personally suspect the label was not applied in an official capacity.
This piece would surely predate Caithness - perhaps even the existence of Caithness?

I don't know the age of the S&W pieces, although I have a flared bowl myself.
Do you know the dates of these?

I was under the impression they were late 30s there are pictures in the RB'y S &W's archives but no date. There was a pair on a popular tv antiques programme, the dealer selling them said they were Whitefriars and the small bowl next to the vase was a lid making it a ginger jar, the fact it was a bowl and not a lid was obvious, ::) ;D ;D have yet to see one in blue.

Whew, I sort of suspected '30s.  (but then panicked about the '40s and '50s)

Definitely S & W's, bad 'bloom' on that wouldn't pay that much for it  ::) p.s. just seen a piece of 'Foundry' glass on your ebay site, first one I've seen in a while, the diagonal stripe vase.
