From Mark Hills  (invaluable) book on Caithness - this vase is illustrated on page 98

<<1990's floral vase no B106CA14 from the Norwich giftware collection in Lavender. 8" high. launched in 1987 .. they were marketed under traditional names such as Priory and Brancaster Court. Some shapes were designed by Colin Terris and cuts designed by factory manager John Dawe. They also came in Brancaster blue cased crystal from 1992, and cost £34.95 at that time>>

Thanks Jak I will get around to buying that Caithness book - just having problems buying online right now

So it is Caithness and a neodymium version - wuite expensive at the time - I csant see it making that at thge present time

But never the less the book will arouse interest and things may change

Thanks as ever Adam
