No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Glass / Re: Identifying two Kosta Boda signed glass bowls
« Last post by chopin-liszt on Yesterday at 02:45:08 PM »
Thanks for your efforts with the resizing and posting directly to the board, it is very much appreciated. :)
We do like bottoms here, bottoms are absolutely essential, but would it be possible to see the sticks themselves too, pretty please?

You can post up to 4 images in each message, just click on the little bit underneath the attaching box saying "more attachments" and another box will appear.
Welcome to the board. :)

Those are beautiful and very much like mine! Never heard the term Twit Twoo, it just means owl I think? Here is another gorgeous one.

Apologies, I forgot to leave a link to the owl I had found with similarities to yours Kerrie787

It would be great to find an oval one, wouldn't it? :)

Try putting "Caithness Twit Twoo" in an image search engine. You'll find the Beatles.

I've just gone through my Caithness paperweight and gift catalogue from 2012, there are 4 striped owls there, which are of a very similar design, developed by Sarah Paterson
But you've already got Helen's word for it and you won't get better than that. :)

I didn't know she was one of the designers,  that is so cool! How amazing that I was able to get someone from Caithness to see it. Sometimes I love the internet :)

Thank you for letting me know, and the tip about the factory store.

If it isn't signed, it may have been sold in the factory shop. Helen MacDonald who told you it was Caithness is one of their designers and has been since 1974, so she should know.
