The Caithness Glass Windfall Ruby paperweight is a clever apple design and the best selling fruit paperweight. Using ruby glass and clear bubbles inside the paperweight, the glass is then gathered and formed into the shape of an apple using wooden clocks and a nail of all things. Once the apple is created the bright green stalk and leaf are then added. Almost tempting enough to eat!
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.
Very please with paperweight, exactly how advertised
