In that colour I bet it's neodymium glass and Caithness. Some of the Caithness stuff was signed by the engraver

Frank's Scotland's Glass site shows this colourway, and I "think" he has info about the engravers there too, so it's worth a looksee:

hi anne thanks for the links,the colour and shape is right to be caithness,and i think the DC signature could be a DG which would mean it was signed by the engraver david gulland. :thup:
