It looks rather like it may be neodymium(Alexandrite) glass.  If you hold it near a flourescent tube does it raemain pale amethyst of turn to pale blue or pale green - if so it is neodymium glass.  As far as I am aware WF did not do Neodymium objects.  It would then probably be Czeck or Murano.  Also from a rusty memory I feel that vases of this shape were always coated with an thick, clear, outer layer.

Hi ahremck
It does change colour to a pale blue. That was putting me off it being Whitefriars as well as i can't remember seeing anything of there's which does this. So Murano or Czech hmmm I will keep looking around the web. Thanks for the info :)

I think it's Caithness; shape and colour look right.

What's a few hundred kilometres between factories?  Wish they all marked everythin properly and save us so much grief.

It probably was labelled originally.

My thinking, for what it's worth is Caithness also. :)
