Wow this absolutely magnificent piece of glass with the thistle sitting majestically inside the faceted clear dome has been designed and created by Caithness Glass who are renowned the world over for high quality paperweights and artglass, in both traditional and more abstract designs. Each and every Caithness paperweight is a unique work of art, designed by a member of their wonderful Design Team and individually hand-crafted to the highest possible standards.
If you are looking for something a little bit special as a gift along with something that is striking and unusual then you need look no further. Caithness Paperweights are very collectible items and this lovely item can be enjoyed and passed down through the generations.
It has been formed by creating the spikes of thistle first and then the large green bubble is blown up with compressed air below. Green glass chips melted into thin wispy lines swirl around the thistle inside and then kingfisher glass is melted in behind the thistle and the piece shaped with a wet newspaper pad.
This will make a truly outstanding gift for any special occasion or special person.
