This elegant work of Scottish Sommerso Modernist glass is a slender but beautifully formed bud vase by Caithness. Suspended in the clear glass casing are ribbons of colour in Dark Amber and Deep Cerulean blue, shades of which are found in the Oban Plaid pattern. The iconic ribbons of colour used in the Oban series are inspired by the Scottish landscape.
A BIT OF HISTORY
Caithness Glass is a Scottish artistic glassware manufacturing company. It was established in Wick, Caithness, Scotland in 1961 by Robin Sinclair, 2nd Viscount Thurso, initially manufacturing ornamental glassware such as paperweights and vases. Caithness established a second factory from the late 1960s which focussed primarily on art glass. Around this time, in 1968 the company was awarded the Queen Mother's Royal Warrant (meaning they were the recognised supplier of glass to the Queen Mother) and the company continues today to make a beautiful range of glassware.
