Thanks again everybody!
Gareth, one of the other reasons I thought the "Ikora" wasn't, is actually the colour! I felt it was probably too "modern", but then, I don't know much about WMF. I do have one Ikora piece, which looks like a snow-covered pine forest. (There is no colour, just the white stuff) I shall try to post a picture tomorrow. Sadly, there is some damage - it had been lined with silver (real) which had blackened and somebody must have thought it was dirt and tried to scrub it out!!! Is it worth trying to get it restored, bearing in mind there is also a bruise? (When I bought it I didn't know too much about these things, as I said before, all part of the learning process! :oops:
Guest, the same regarding the colour goes for the heavy, what Leni calls "jelly" piece, which I've not seen in any Murano or Chalet pieces that I know of (which, I have to confess, is not a lot). I suppose I've not actually seen very much stuff in these yellows anyway! It is kind of, well, lurid
Thanks for your comments too, Frank, I shall bear them in mind. Is there anything else the "Ikora" might be, bearing in mind the good age-related wear (or somebody spending ages grinding it on a dusty shelf :twisted: which I doubt, considering the peanuts I paid for it!)
