Caithness Empty Caithness

Post by heygarth54 on August 10th 2010, 2:41 pm

Caithness 4_vase10 I usually only spend a few pounds on items that look interesting, but today I shelled out a budget busting tenner on this vase, I couldn't resist it. It just feels old and of quality, and the pale yellow and black marbleing give it a genuine art deco look. It is exactly seven inches tall with a heavy base but very thin rim, the marbleing effect is slightly raised from the surface, the base isn't completely flat, it has a slight indent. Does anyone recognise this type of glass and maybe suggest a maker or designer.

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.

Flower Crystal - Red Poppies, designed by Colin Terris in 1984

The code B15914 that is on the weight, B is the date code for 1984, the date the weight was produced, the numbers are for how many weights were made by Caithness that year (total weights). This weight was made in an unlimited edition.

Hope that helps a little.
