The Caithness Glass Caress range of paperweights are created by combining bright coloured chips, bubbles and a wisp of colour caressing a large bubble making a whimsical and interesting pointed dome shaped paperweight.
Caithness was first established in 1961 at Wick in the North of Scotland making contemporary Scandinavian style vases and bowls. The designs were very popular and soon received the ultimate accolade of Royal patronage in 1968.
1968 also saw the arrival of Colin Terris, who was originally taken on as an engraver. Colin developed an understanding and a passion for designing unusual abstract styles and forms using colour to decorate glass and creating paperweights.
The Caithness paperweight was born and in 1969 The Planets set of paperweights was introduced to the market receiving worldwide design acclaim and proving, more importantly, to be very commercial too.
Today under the stewardship of Dartington crystal, the team of skilled Caithness designers and craftsmen continue to explore and push the boundaries of glass making whilst embracing modern developments in technology to produce high quality paperweights that are recognised the world over as the market leader.
The team at Havens were excellent to deal with. I needed the item ordered by a particular date as it was a present and Jasmine and her colleague were very good at keeping me informed. The gift arrived well in advance. Thank you.
