‘Caithness Glass: Loch, Heather and Peat’ Book
Illustrated with over 200 specially commissioned full colour photographs, this is the first publication to bring together and examine the Scandinavian inspired designs of the 1960s & 70s, engraved and sandblasted ranges and the highly appealing, often complex, designs produced from the 1980s onwards.
A specially written introduction covers the history of the company, puts designs in context, and also looks at the life and work of co-founder and first designer Domhnall ÓBroin. Caithness Glass is one of the last under-appreciated areas of 20thC British glass – and this book reveals the story behind it and helps you to build a collection wisely.
This exclusive fully illustrated article shows you how to identify the fake and the authentic – including details on the hotly sought-after ‘Drunken Bricklayer’ vases as well as ‘Hoop’ and ‘Onion’ vases.
