Genesis 1973

Flower in the Rain 1973

Classics 1973-1974

Genesis was one of the fastest selling paperweights that Caithness ever made, which was unusual as it had no colour in it at all! Only powdered charcoal and silica sand were used to obtain this dramatic effect.

Flower in the Rain was designed and made by Jack Allen when he joined Caithness from Perthshire Paperweights in 1973. It was produced in many colour variations over the years, and it also inspired quite a few other floral based design themes.
