Caithness "Moonflower-First Variation" by Colin Terris circa 1970-1976
Beautiful early Caithness paperweight, dating to between 1970 and 1976. The title is "Moonflower". It is not engraved. However, I have the original purchase receipt for the weight. It was shipped from Caithness to a buyer in England in 1976. The paperwork will be included.
According to Charlton's "Caithness Paperweights", Moonflower was unlimited edition, first introduced in 1970, with many color variations. This is an early and outstanding example of one of Caithness' most popular designs.
Colin Terris was the designer. The paperweight's primary colors are cadmium orange medium and a deep purple- black. It measures 2 3/4"" in diameter at the widest and 2 1/2" in height.
The orb is in perfect condition. No chips or flaws. The base has a few minor scratches, but they do not diminish it's appearance.
It looks spectacular on a lighted base.
An exciting addition to any paperweight collection, especially if you admire early work by Colin Terris, which began with Caithness in 1969.
Thank you for looking!
