Well I don't know if the one described as Caithness IS Caithness....but it is not Whitefriars.

I would also say that the one described as Whitefriars is not Whitefriars either.....I have the genuine Whitefriars one in this shape, and a lot of other Whitefriars soda glass, and not one of them has a ground rim.  All have fire polished rims.  The proportions of this one listed do not look right either.

I would say the so-called "Caithness" one isn't Caithness, it doesn't look substantial enough

In fact, they are *both* Caithness! The lampbases were made in two shapes... and the sales are for each of them. :)
