Small Caithness lamp base, cut down decanter?
« on: November 03, 2012, 03:26:04 PM »
Hi All,

I thought I had all the Caithness glass lamp base forms, until I stumbled on this the other day, to my eyes it looks like a cut down Canisbay decanter. Has anyone else got or seen one of these? Do you think it was done at Caithness or is it possible that someone has chipped the decanter and made this themselves. The brass fitment and crap gluing looks exactly the same as my other Caithness lamp bases! Its about 7.5" tall.
Thanks in advance.

Cheers, David
