Offered is a CAITHNESS Neodymium vase engraved with Harebells.
Neodymium is an additive to the glass that causes it to change from lilac in daylight to blue/green under artificial light.
Neodymium/Alexandrite glass is very collectible.
Harebells are a sub-genus of the Bluebell family
Base is signed 'WB' which I believe to be the monogram of Willie Bain (at Cathness 1974-2004)
