Although this one isn't signed I am 99% sure it is caithness.  Does anyone recognise it please to confirm or deny?

Yes Caithness, I have a plain coloured one the same shape. Does yours change colour (pink to blue) under different lights like mine does? If so it's neodymium glass.

Hi Anne

Normally I know to check for Neodymium when its this sort of colouration but this time admittedly it didn't even cross my mind I think because the white threw me off that scent.  But yes it does I have just walked from the lounge into the office as I know all my neo pieces change colour in those two room.  Thanks I would honestly not have checked that.  This was a little present from my girlies today they paid just 5 euros so I think they did alright bless them.
