Caithness Pink MOONFLOWER Paperweight Purchased in Perthshire,  Scotland, and HAND SIGNED by COLIN TERRIS 1986!!! Also included is its modern design presentation box! 

 International bidders welcome!!! From my own personal collection!!   Hello, you are bidding on a beautiful modern design Caithness paperweight called MOONFLOWER.  This weight was handpicked by me during a 1986 visit to the Caithness factory in Perth, Scotland, for both its lovely color and its glass clarity. I was a young teacher traveling there to study English and Scottish literature, and I spent much of my time touring the unique paperweight factories of Scotland, Caithness, Selkirk, and Perthshire.  This paperweight was one of the first that I collected, and more modern weights followed. At that time, I made the acquaintance of COLIN TERRIS, the founding director and innovator of Caithness Glass.  He was given recognition by Queen Elizabeth as a member of the order of the British Empire  for his importance to the glass making industry, and is responsible for modern glass design as we know it today.  In fact, he is referred to as the 'father of modern paperweight design'. Mr. Terris hand signed my paperweight with his name by etching his signature in the glass base as the photos show.  This greatly adds to the unique value of this particular weight, which is one of the earlier designs that the company produced and was in fact, a design by Mr. Terris himself.  I met Mr. Terris many times over the years until his death, and I have other pieces signed by him as well as a 1/1 piece that he himself designed and made for me.  That one I am unable to part with!!   Caithness introduced modern glass design to the world, and this weight is a very early example of their development of this process.   It is engraved  Moonflower Caithness Scotland D36687 with the additional hand etched signature  Colin Terris 1986.  It is in excellent condition, and will come with its modern cardboard presentation box.    International bidders will need to have their shipping costs calculated at auctions’ end.  Please check my other auctions including Perthshire and Selkirk paperweights as well as other items in my ebay store to save on shipping.  Thank you for looking in and happy bidding!!!!
