Caithness Glass is known throughout the world for its beautiful glassware and is and is regarded as one of the most respected producers of museum-quality paperweights.

After being placed "under administration" (the UK equivalent of statutory management) Caithness Glass is now owned by Dartington Crystal. Hopefully this will ensure the company will continue to produce the beautiful glass for which it is famous. Whatever the future, all Caithness glass, especially closed and vintage pieces, will increase in value and become even more collectable.


"VOLCANO" is from my own personal collection and is as good as an example of this lovely design as you are likely to see. The base is mottled with deep pink, lapping up around the sides. In the centre is an unside down, large tear shapped silvery bubble which is ringed with smaller silvery bubbles. From these swirls of white and pink rise up towards the top. This oval shaped weight has faceted in an inverted "V" shape to enhance the design.

The paperweight is etched on the base: "Caithness Scotland, Volcano, 39 of 650" and comes with it's certificate and box.

Height 8.6cm, width 6.3cm, weight 523g. This paperweight is in excellent condition with no scratches or bruises.

Not only is this a beautiful paperweight but it is also extremely collectable.

Good luck bidding!

This is a "no reserve" auction.

Please don't ask for a "buy now" price as refusal may offend.
