Caithness - Help - Found old stock, looking for advice
« on: November 12, 2020, 11:35:32 AM »
Hi,

Hopefully someone can help.

My father used to have some shops many years ago and while clearing his house I have found some old stock of Caithness glass.

I am looking to sell them but have no idea on where is best placed to advertise them or indeed how much they are worth.

I have listed what I found below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Large paperweights
Flower in rain red
Royal birth moonflower
ER 1952-1977 (#2846)
Galactica (#585)
Lobster (#776)
Jubilee Crown Bubble (#2846)

Pebble paperweight
Topaz U8640
Coral U8637
Moon crystal Green U8515
Emerald U8638
Pink U8516

Ring stand
Green U8520
Green green U8461

Vase
4302A
4301A

I am new to this forum so apologies if this post isn't appropriate

Many thanks

Tony

Hi Tony, welcome to the GMB.

I have moved your thread from the paperweights forum to this Market Place forum. This is a place where comments and advice can be given and questions raised regarding the specific items you have listed.

One very reasonable way to find a ball-park figure is to search the sold sections of auctions for similar items, on certain well-known auction sites. :)
