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

The reply is to me but it should be in a completely different thread. :) [Mod: See below - post added to incorrect thread]

I've not seen this thread before, so I've just got my Caithness book out, and I'm not sure about this "lamp base" at all.
It could be a decanter, cut down, or it might be shape 4083 from the Stroma & Braemar range. (p111. "Caithness Glass Loch, Heather & Peat" by Mark Hill)
It's the wrong shape completely for a lamp base.

Sue - can you give a link (or a clue) to the thread that dexterhoopie's reply should be with?

OK - I have found the thread in Glass Market Place. I will tidy up this thread.
