    Thanks all! Leslie, I got the green glass, and I have a collection, from a thrift store. Just keep your eyes open, you may find some. Usually very inexpensive.

    Amey, Thank you for the name. At least I have something to go on.

    So many white cattleyas like that one - so hard to guess. Maybe Cattleya Clear Morn Purity? Ours was in bloom recently. Lovely bloom.

    Cheers,

    Last week I noticed that this orchid has a wonderful fragrance. That might lead to the proper name. I was also wondering if all cattleyas have a fragrance?

    Joanna, good to know that your Catt is scented, not all are especially the waxy hybrids, but I am not sure if it will help us in identification any further, as most white catts are bred from Catt Bow bells which is scented and tends to pass it on to its progeny.
