Caithness Glass  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.

I picked an identical one up the other day in cinnamon and kind of covinced myself
that it was Whitefriars. Yours would be the Willow colourway.
Very similar to the 9652 flared vase by Baxter from 1965, but unfortunately the
height wasn't stated in the book to compare it with. Maybe wrong though...

The cinnamon example 5 inches high, so looks to be the same vase.
