Title: unusual Caithness bowl
Post by: Paul S. on June 17, 2011, 04:17:45 PM
Something I know absolutely nothing about - although I see shed loads on my travels but, compared with pieces I see, this just looks so untypical of Caithness, and I only know it's from Scotland because it has the back stamp (sandblasted).    Best described as a frosted/small bubbled effect, within the thickness of the glass (which is very thick), and the rim is ground/polished/bevelled.     I have looked on eaby etc. but don't see this pattern, so grateful if someone can give me an indication of age and perhaps name of design.       Height is about 4.25" - 110mm.    There is some wear, so don't think it's that recent, and regret to say there is a small chip on the rim.   Thanks for looking. :)

It's clearly about time you had a good look here, Paul. You need the Scotland's Glass site - not ebay!
I've helped you a bit, got the right page.  :thup:
It's the Glassware link (850 items) you need to trawl through, but you might see a lot of interesting stuff long the way.

thanks very much Sue  -  need to make just one more post, eat a piece of Janet's cream sponge cake that she's just made and have a cup of tea, and will then come back on this.    Will also probably watch today's 'Secret Dealers' while I'm down there  -  does anyone else catch the programme?
