Hi all

I have this modern amethyst glass vase, it looks high quality and quite heavy, it has an etched owl design on the front and is signed 'ls' on the base.

could it be ken benson?

I agree, it does look remarkably similar, you could be right.

Definitely from Caithness. This shape with the same engraved design is shown on page 100 of Mark Hill's book on Caithness. LS is the engravers mark and may be well be Lorna Sutherland's.
