Caithness Glass  Empty Caithness Glass

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.

Caithness Glass  Empty Czech? Italian? Or something else - Caithness

Post by Alex_s March 7th 2013, 7:57 pm

Apologies for the poor photo - couldn't get the light right.

This is around 8" tall. The rim is cut but bevelled, and the base is flat, polished with no pontil.

Seems to be triple cased. Anyone seen similar?

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.

Definitely from Caithness. This shape with the same engraved design is shown on page 100 of Mark Hill's book on Caithness. LS is the engravers mark and may be well be Lorna Sutherland's.
