Flat and polished might indicate Whitefriars, concave, heat finished, would suggest Caithness.

There are a lot of these budvases around. I did offer a couple of what I sinncerely believed were WF ones to the WF mould fund, but they were turned down on the grounds that there were too many around and that attribution could be dodgy. I took it from that there wasn't much interest in them.
Sorry!
Cheers, Sue (M)

These are definitely Caithness as I have one with a label.  Besides, the similar Whitefriars ones were not made in cased colours.
