Colin Terris signed WE CAME IN PEACE paperweight 1969 1st edition-Neil Armstrong


This is the first Caithness Paperweight! This weight was designed by Colin Terris while he was still designing the the Planet set in 1969 following a request from Harrods for a weight commemorating the impending landing on the Moon. At this point Caithness had no paperweight department and this was thus considered an engraving product, hence it is not included in the Charlton guide. Colin Terris intended to include it in the third edition. Sadly Colin Terris passed away in 2007.

Caithness took a chance and made the entire edition of 1,000 weights without the engraving. With a successful landing on the 21st July 1969, they had to work flat out adding the engraving, fifty nose cones were shipped overnight to Harrods on the 23rd July and the remainder were shipped within a fortnight. They sold out in the same period.

This is one of the rare 1st editions signed and number CG610. Measuring 3 1/2" and 2 7/8" wide and weighing 319 grams. There is a small nick of the bottom - it is less than one millimetre and does not distract since the paperweight is sitting on while being displayed. Otherwise is it in excellent vintage condition with no scratches or cracks.

A true collector will know the value and history of this rate piece!
