I am bidding on this, would love an opinion...
« on: June 28, 2007, 08:12:25 PM »
Hello everyone,
When I was browsing paperweights on ebay, I saw this and something clicked...it was like something I've seen before.  Someone tried to buy it now but was turned down.

 290132122993

If you get a chance...could you look at this and see if it looks like any maker you know?   I am bidding, but it still has some time to go, and something tells me it will go high.

Thanks and stay cool!

Yip looks french, a couple more photo's would confirm and the price would go,go,go :o 8)
Glassnut, better if we use the ebay links at the top of the screen, it helps the board.

I agree with French, the red & white murrhines (9 parts with centre) match Clichy canes from the Jargstorf book.

As to the search boxes on top - I use Norton 360 (antivirus etc) and can't see any boxes either
and links to ebay and amazon don't work.

The screens at the top are not a biggy, I was just mentioning them.
FLTR you should see an ebay.com, ebay.co.uk, then the Glass Encyclopedia and Glass Musuem and then amazon.com search thingymebobs.  Every time you enter a search in there the board gets 0.00000001%  ;D of a penny but still it helps the board.

Thanks everyone,
I was thinking that but am not experienced enough to know.  The person didn't even show a picture on the main search page.  I've been outbid already...we'll see how it goes.  Thank you.....feel free to bid on it too if you want...I doubt I would get it anyway~
