Kieran, lots of Caithness isn't marked, so don't let that put you off.   Now looking at your later pics the vase has changed colour.... does it do this in different light, e.g. does it go blue under fluorescent or low-energy bulbs and pink in daylight? If so, it's probably neodymium glass, which Caithness did use.

Anne your link to neodymium glass was very interesting.
