Greetings all.

I am looking to expand my already sizeable Caithness glass collection and am simply wondering if anyone has any pieces for sale.

Looking for wine, champagne, cocktail, highball and tumblers in the midnight, dusk or dawn shades.

Have a picture of a set of 3 i recently picked up, to give an idea of what i am looking for.

Thank you Pamela for the information, I should imagine a flower frog for the vase would be quite difficult to find, it's a strange shape.

Many many thanks,

"The most reliable indicator for the Burtles, Tate & Co. swan attributions (irrespective of the size) is the RD number 20086 (registered 8 January 1885) that they usually bear."

Thank you Fred for your helpful info, do you know how long after the 1885 date the Burtles, Tate & Co Swans were made?

Hi Eggar,

Your vase was designed by Jan Sylwester Drost and produced by the Ząbkowice Household Glass Works in Ząbkowice Śląskie, in the 60s.  :)
