Caithness Glass Celebrates 50 Years
As one of Scotland’s most famous brand names, we have a very special birthday. Caithness Glass is still flying the flag for Scottish craftsmanship nearly 50 years since it was first established. Since 1961 handmade creations of Caithness have become sought after by buyers and collectors all over the world.
In fact Caithness Glass is now one of the only remaining glass brands still making in Scotland or the rest of the UK! As you may be aware, Caithness was first established near Wick and the range of products over the years have included a whole selection of coloured vases, bowls and drink ware, but to most, Caithness is best known for the many styles of glass paperweights manufactured since 1969. These fascinating creations have been collected with passion or given as mementos in their thousands ever since...
We are sure you will agree that this is a milestone which is worth celebrating! Managing Director Neil Hughes comments: “We are very proud that Caithness can still boast ‘hand-made in Scotland’ and are remain a leading name in the paperweight world. We welcome thousands of visitors to the factory and they are always amazed at what they see. We have a fantastic supportive customer base who champion us at Caithness and we look forward to the continued success of the business. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support.”
