Caithness Glass Paperweights and Jewellery
« on: October 03, 2006, 09:22:33 AM »
Frank - I have two Caithness Paperweights by Colin Terris - Floral Tribute Limited edition No. 26 of 100 made in 1981  and Millefiori Reflections. Both come with box and certificate. I also have two pieces of Caithness Jewellery  - a Celtic Pendant hallmarked Birmingham and a ring (R 11?) hallmarked London 1970 -  both in original boxes. If pics of any of these would be useful to your site please let me know  and I will take the required shots from whichever angle you want.
Regards
John

Is the ring box marked R11, not been able to ID that one yet - I have 5 rings still to be identified. (Yours looks to be the same one I have) With the new system I can add as many views as I want, a rear shot of the pendant would be good and as many views of the ring to show the design of the metalwork.

Weights always of course :-)

Unfortunately the ring box does not show the code. I was basing it on the positioning of the ring on the chart on your ysartglass web page.
I will send on all the pics to you.

Silly me, I just thought the empty spaces looked silly. The new site makes it easier and I will close the old page down as it is already out of synch with new data on the new pages
