A bargain-price Caithness LE!
« on: October 20, 2006, 12:03:36 PM »
I don't often get this lucky, but I've just bought a LE Caithness - 'Caprice' no. 664 of 750 by Colin Terris, 1983 with a 'book price' of £50 - for £1.71   :shock:  :D
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10048/Caithness_Caprice.jpg

It was just identified as a 'Lovely Flower Paperweight' and I thought it was pretty and would go in the cabinet with my 'dime-a-dozen' Chinese crimp flowers, so I put a small 'registering my interest' bid and forgot about it.  

It arrived this morning, and when I looked at the base ..... WOW!   :D

Did you just forget to bid, Ray?   :twisted:  

I'm interested; did you recognise it for what it was, or just think, as I did, that it was a nice looking weight?
