Caithness Paperweights

Caithness Paperweights

At the original site in the far north of Scotland Caithness initially produced colored vases and bowls in contemporary, popular styles, and in 1968 they were granted a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. The following year saw the introduction of the first Caithness Glass limited edition paperweights, "The Planets Set," designed by Colin Terris. These ground-breaking abstract creations, and others that quickly followed, succeeded in thrusting Caithness Glass to the forefront of modern paperweight design.

Today they maintain their position as world leaders in the design and production of collectable glass paperweights. Each and every Caithness paperweight is a unique work of art, designed by a member of their dedicated Design Team and individually hand-crafted to the highest possible standards by the skilled makers in their Crieff studios.
