but that's just what is in the Charlton Catalogue.  Did they say anything about it not being signed, numbered, etc?

Could quite easily be a trial piece for the range that would have been kept for display. I know this happened at Selkirk and these went onto the market when the receivers moved in they were signed but without the Ltd Edition numbers on the base.

Hi guys
I asked them the question
Could it be fake or a museum piece and the answer i got was just what ive posted they never confirmed or denied
i dont think its a test/study  piece as ive got one at home from the early days of caithness that after  mods turned into "alien" not sure of the year but that  info came from peter holmes himself via wuff
Regards
Joe

I've found a wee bit about Rosette Fleming here on Scotland's Glass.

and some weights here:

joewol, do you still have the original pics of your weight?
Would you be kind enough to let Scotland's Glass use them?  :)
I think Wuff is dealing with this onerous task at the moment.

I may have "captured" Fire Dance last week, the sun came out and hit it perfectly; purely by chance. I did my best to sort out the background around it, and got a couple of shots before the batteries ran out. I do have a decent "Cartouche" shot.
