Seller notes: please see condition details below

Up for auction is a rare limited edition Caithness glass paperweight produced in 1981 in a limited edition of 250. This paperweight is numbered 96. It is entitled Wedding Bell and depicts a legend cane with the lettering 'C & D' to the centre surrounded by further cane decoration in the shape of a bell, and then an outer garland. Lovely colours contrasting attractively with the black ground. The weight is facetted with 5 oval facets to the outside and a circular facet to the top.

This paperweight was designed by Colin Terris (see below) and is an excellent example of millefiori cane work (see information below). 

The paperweight comes complete with box & certificate. Beautiful deep red coloured box with red interior & gold coloured lettering to box top 'Caithness paperweight'.

This paperweight was made to commemorate the marriage of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, and bears the initials of the couple's first names to the central cane.

Size: approx 3 inches or 7.5 cms in diameter & approx 2.5 inches or 6 cms high (max).

Condition:  Beautiful condition, free from any chips or cracks with just a very small scratch to base, looks to have been stored in its box to maintain condition. Please note any 'marks' in the photos are reflections only & are due to the highly reflective nature of this item. Some tiny bubbles within glass.

Etched mark to base which reads 'Caithness Scotland' and & 'Wedding Bell' to centre and engraved number '96/250'. (see final photo)

Box & Certificate Condition - Very good condition. 

Lovely rare paperweight in beautiful condition would make great addition to any collection, or lovely wedding gift. 

Colin Terris (1937-2006) was an important & respected paperweight maker & designer working at Caithness from 1968 until 2001. Originally employed as the Head of Design & Engraving Studio, he became Director of Design in 1970. In the late 1960's, inspired by the work of the internationally renowned paperweight maker Paul Ysart who was also working at Caithness, Colin Terris experimented with ideas & production methods to produce innovative weights at the forefront of paperweight design. He established the Caithness Collectors Society in 1976.

Millefiori - .a technique in which a number of glass rods of different sizes & colours are fused together or a glass rod is dipped into other colours of glass and then fused - this results in various patterns running through the rod (a little like the writing inside a stick of rock). After cooling the fused rod or cane is sliced into sections so that the pattern can be seen at the ends of each section. The resulting sections can be used to make a wide range of patterns & designs as illustrated in this paperweight.

Please check out my other listings as I have more high quality Caithness paperweights for sale & lots of other interesting pottery, china & glass items for sale.
