As for the rigging, it could be me that's got it the wrong way round.  :oops:

Yeah, I reckon your boat is going backwards, Glen  :lol:

Of course, it could just be tacking into the wind  :roll:  :wink:

Leni, I think that mine is the rare Variant.  :lol:

Actually, the central section doesn't fit as well the other way round - that's why we put it in thataway.

Hi, i've been reading all your messages for the past half hour! :shock:

Heck, I even had a nice cuppa and went through a whole 8 inch diameter cake.  :oops:

Just think of all though's people that worked their souls off into creating Vaseline glass. tell me, do the people that create it still glow in the dark? :lol:


On the serious side of things, i've heard that some employees have died from radiation poison. :cry:  Fortunetly the glass is harmless outside of the factory.  :)

As for my ship, i'm not sure if it glows under UV light since I haven't got one. The ship looks the same colour as my other pieces if that's any help. Will a sun tan bed do? It works on me! :D

A Carlshuette sailing ship! I never would have guessed that Carlshuette made it (that was my little way of sounding intelligent).

I can't find any Carlshuette items on Ebay, did they make other things like this?

Thanks for all your help everybody.

I've had a nice read so i think i'll go to bed after i've taken my indigestion tablets :D :wink:

Tigerchips - I (almost certainly wrongly) assumed your boat was vaseline. I think it was caused by the fact that I had seen a vaseline one quite recently and I made a leap that I shouldn't have regarding yours!

As to maker....if I were you, I would simply say that it is Czech, 1930s. You can always go the whole way for a dinner party trick and do the Carlshut/  Carlshuette thing, for effect, if you want.  :lol:

And how about sharing that cake?
