Very nice, I like that.

Designed by Domhnall ÓBroin in 1961, discontinued by 1972. Info from Caithness Glass by Mark Hill.

My pleasure Ole.

Domhnall ÓBroin was one of the first designers working in Britain to be so heavily influenced by Scandinavian design and glass making methods. It shows in this piece in it's simplicity as well as the teak lid (yours is just as it should be, they are described as "storage jar".). ÓBroin is probably an under recognised designer over here.
