You should upload a bigger picture, have you ID'd the design name (incomplete) here?

I've found that its the flamenco - chinese vase, possibly the midnight design. There were lots of different colour patterns used on the vase designs.

Colours used can help to date production, at least once there are a lot more in there. Where the year introduced is known it is included along with which catalogues each colourway appeared in. Shapes were used across all ranges.

what ive been trying to research is whether caithness made glasses and decanters to fit in with any of their ranges.
its how i got into the whole thing to start with. i happened to buy this decanter set and 6 glasses (2 of which smashed through delivery :(), and i swear they were exactly the same design as this little pink caithness vase. mydecanter got put up the loft before i could check to see if it was stamped, so i really must dig it out. but it was really heavy based, which i was told was a sign of quality. since then ive been hooked on these little glass vases and bowls. i've looked in the catalogue and they all seem to range from the late 90s. but whether they made decanters in this flameco design, i dont know. i have seen wine glasses advertised Ebay though!

I have really taken to the designs by Domhnall Obroin (hope I have spelled his name correctly!), and the neodymium glass made by Caithness.  I have managed to get quite a few together, including the large lampbases and a decanter and I have them for sale in my antiques unit.  If you are anywhere near Barnsley then you could call in :)

Afraid not sorry, i'm from East Anglia. Bit of a treck. Caithness do make decanters then... I don't suppose you know if they did any in the flamenco style - like my picture at the top... only mine has pink/white swirls - not black/white.
