Caithness Vase in Heather
« on: August 30, 2011, 07:59:46 PM »
Vase in heather colour - bought for my Caithness collection.

8" tall sandblasted mark to base (see photo)

This appears to be a 60s 70s design but is not in Mark Hill's excellent book

Can anyone shed any light?

Thanks Adam

i've only ever had one caithness piece with the same sandblasted mark as yours, it was on a striped cocktail glass, wonder if the oban site used a different mark than the wick factory?
cheers Ray

I've had two pieces recently with this mark - one a Stroma rose bowl in a gold colour - which I think indicates it is a late production one, and a green faceted low vase which I am pretty sure is made after 2000. 

I wondered if this was the mark on pieces that Caithness had made in Poland ? (refer Mark Hills book page 106)

Also meant to say - your vase looks remarkable like a Morven decanter that has not been finished at the top? how do the sizes compare?

I have a flamenco vase and a CT117 shakespeare vase with same mark. Both 1990d.

This is 8" where as morven decanter is 10".

In terms of date and mark, not four days ago I saw the same sandblasted (acid etched?) mark on a piece with a recent caithness label attached.  Was nothing like this, a standard bulb vase with an etched flower design.  Same colour though. Enough age for it to end up in a charity shop but how long might that take?
