I don't think so. I don't go looking through numbers and catalogues personally, but I don't think this is a wfs shape, and the wfs knobblies were knobbled with an S-shaped tool - I can't make out the exact shapes of the swirls in the surface from the pics - but they don't look too much as if they've been knobbled by the correct tool.

No not Whitefriars, looks like it might come from a similar source as the other one you posted recently ???
