The pattern on the outside can vary a lot, some are much more distinctive than others. This one was much fainter: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/MiscellaneousGlass#5752082247131961938

Caithness vases are often only marked by stickers, unless they are engraved, which are generally missing.

It would appear the shape can vary considerably too.
Mine is only theoretically the same shape as yours and the one in John's image...
(or is it a different shape entirely?)
