Caithness shamrock
« on: November 06, 2006, 07:19:05 PM »
I'm new to Caithness. Partly because I am more fond of traditional styled pieces. I won this today. I think it's part of a series but I can't remember the name of it. Does anyone else know? Who did the lampwork?
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Hi,The Shamrock could of been made by myself or one of my fellow lampworkers  (Rosette Fleming,Mel Stuart or Linda campbell) over the years ,as we made these at various times including a special commission for Cash&co .The C11G on the base shows that it was classed as a second quality piece.

Thanks Allan. It's such a lovely little weight that I could not pass it up.
