I saw the pic and thought the shapes and colours were Caithness, but the lister says Dartington. Is this one of those cases where Caithness patterns are still made by Dartington, or something else?

Caithness colours and three shapes I recognise as classic Caithness. Decidedly un-Dartington all of them.

Thanks John, I've messaged the seller to see if they are marked in any way.

Seller has replied to say she made an error, and after checking with her hubbie who remembered they were Caithness, she has amended the listing to show the vases as Caithness. So that's another puzzle solved. :)

Seller also invited to come and join us on the board.
