50 years of Scottish Glassmaking

Founded in 1961, our glass paperweights have always been inspired by the beautiful colours of the Scottish landscape. From the purple heather to the blue lochs, we’re proud to spend our time crafting among this unique scenery.

Over 50 years after our inception, glass paperweights are sought after by buyers and collectors all over the world, thanks to our innovative design and quality glassmaking techniques.

The Paperweight Collectors

The man behind Caithness paperweights, Colin Terris, founded the Paperweight Collectors< Circle in 1976. Enthusiasts from around the world share the secrets of the art of glassmaking and a love of beautifully designed and collectable paperweights.

A unique, handcrafted gift

Our paperweights are so revered because each and every one is a unique work of art, designed and individually handcrafted by our talented team here in Scotland. Our paperweights make wonderful gifts to mark special occasions, whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary or a new arrival. We can even create personalised paperweights, for that extra special touch.

All orders are handled by our specialist team. They pack and wrap each order to ensure safe delivery. And just in case, we offer a no quibble guarantee on any breakages or damages.
