    This little Caithness glass piggy paperweight is another Salvation Army find from today's treasure hunt. The interior is filled with tiny green clover leaves and is acid stamped on the bottom Caithness Scotland. There's also a warning label that says "Do Not Place in Direct Sunlight" I seem to remember hearing a story about a house that caught fire because of a collection sitting in a window. They can act just like a magnifying glass and focus the sunlight. Who doesn't remember that trick as a kid...but I won't get into the specifics of that. -Mike-

      Cute Caithness.

      I have heard that story too Mike but I have crystal on a sunny Australian windowsill and have never worried. I'll let you know if my house catches fire.
