Caithness Vase Signed (CB)
« on: April 14, 2008, 06:10:59 PM »
Hello & evening.
                      today i went to a small market and on a stall i found 3 vases one being this Caithness vase which stands 30cm high an tapers.

On the vase are two fish which i think maybe Trout also there are lots of little dots in between and around the fish i am presuming that these are supposed to be the water reefs but have they been finished ?

also on the base it is signed CB, can anyone tell me whom this is please, and what circa if possible,
                                                                                                                                     Regards
                                                                                                                                      Steve

Shape is called the Straight Vase, you might find it under vases or engraved glass in the catalogues on Scotland's Glass. Colouring varied over the years.

Best to put post in the forum there with a brief text and a link back to this thread there. No point in having the same Q in two places.

There are a lot more still to be uploaded but I don't have time to search through the queue - one day they will all be there  :)

I think your trout are salmon, they're a bit bulky looking for trout. Can you take a close up of the dots, can't see them from here

Christine.
             Thank you i thought Salmon, but when had a look on the Scotlands Glass site i could not find it, but found the salmon one, but this look like it as not been finished all the dots around and between the fish look like weed well the out line for them? have taken a couple of pics but not great hope you can see them regards

They're probably OK, just hinting at weed and bubbles

I expect Salmon, in a fast flowing bubbly Scottish Burn  ;D
