Walsh glasses

<< < (2/3) > >>

JPH:
Can either of you give me an indication of the market value of the Walsh hock glasses? They are in perfect condition.
I love them and am determined to collect more Walsh Glass.

I am sure you are aware that prices vary depending on a number of factors. The values below are based on my purchases of more than 50 Walsh Fruiting Vine wine glasses over the last 10 years.

Clear Crystal (each)                                 £10-15 (pounds sterling)
Clear Crystal - Airtwist stem (each)             20-30
Coloured single (each)                                25-35
Harlequin set of 6 diff colours                      200-250 per full set of 6

Within each category there are variations depending on where purchased and how desperate I was to close the deal. These values should only be taken as a broad guide as some were auction prices and others dealer sell prices. I hope this info is of some use but please treat it with great respect.

Bernard - I hope I have not "shot myself in the foot" should we at some time in the future be involved in a sell/buy deal. I will still expect your best price ( as I know you always quote)

JPH:
Thanks,
I really appreciate your input... I will learn to understand collecting with this kind of help.

Eric (it had to be you):

As you know I am not keen on discussing values and prices on this board or in public.   And my resolve in this has grown stronger with the constant stream of tacky television programmes that depict antique dealers as little more than confidence tricksters.   I look forward to the day when two members of the public spot a nice looking leg of lamb in a butcher's shop priced at £7.25, and their advisor, perhaps Delia herself, tells them to see if they can get it for £4.50 to give them a good chance of winning this episode of Cookery Challenge.

Most people forget the overheads of finding stock, cleaning it, researching it, storing it, labelling it, transport, security, breakages, and bringing it to the attention of the collector.   And you have to pay yourself some sort of wage - we all need to eat and keep a roof over our heads.

Back to specifics.   I think that anyone today paying the prices Eric quotes above should regard themselves as extremely fortunate.
