Format: Paperback
This is the bible for all those who collect or are interested in Caithness paperweights. Caithness has been producing paperweights since the 1960's and is still going strong today. This is the second edition of the book that was first published in 1999. Caithness have produced a large number of weights some better than others but the phrase beauty is in the eye of the beholder was never more true than when referring to paperweights and what one collector likes another may dismiss out of hand.

The book is very comprehensive but only takes us up to 2004, so to find later issue paperweights, another source will have to be used. The book is extremely well laid out and there are a multitude of colored photographs that will set the collector drooling.

Each listing gives the name of the paperweight, designer, date of issue, issue prices, edition size, and status. It also gives tips on building a collection, step-by-step photographs showing the paperweight creation processes, and information sources on both Caithness Glass paperweights and paperweights in general A comprehensive index completes this unique work. It also gives current market values, at the date the book was published but I am always wary of these prices as anything, not just paperweights is only worth what somebody is prepared to pay for it.

All in all a must have for the Caithness collector and a nice addition for anyone interested in paperweights in general.

If you love paperweights, then you will love Caithness paperweights. This reference guide is very comprehensive and certainly helpful in giving you pricing guidiance. I do wish more color plates had been included and mores note about the individual pieces.

A very useful & comprehensive guide. Well researched with a wealth of knowledge. It helped me price pieces when I had absolutely no idea, although with the advent of on-line selling sites, one must be open to negotiation as they have made the availability of such pieces more prevalent.
