I have never heard of such a weight (and I have right now 4441 Caithness weights in my database) - if the weight is not marked, the name given will likely have been invented by the seller, however.

To see an image would be helpful: just quote the ebay item number.

Looks like a genuine Caithness weight to me: there is a large number of commissioned Caithness weights around, not showing up in any catalogues or sales brochures. So - thank you for pointing this out: as the seller indicated posting to Great Britain only, I would otherwise never have seen this auction ... but will now ask the seller for some images for Scotland's Glass.

To (WUFF) Who replied to my post-Do you have any more information about the weight I asked about?
Regard`s Frank.
Also I was looking for the Charlton 2nd Edition Book on Caithness Weights (2nd hand,can`t afford new one). :'( :'(
