Whitefriars pinecone Meadow Green
« on: March 18, 2008, 01:04:08 PM »
Hi,
I managed to win what I am sure is a Whitefriars Pinecone vase this morning on Ebay. The colour looks like Meadow Green but I have never seen one in this colour before. Has anyone else? or is it perhaps an experimental piece. The vase was poorly discribed and put in the wrong section with no Gallery photo tut tut and I managed to get it for £36, just made it with a second to spare!.
Cheers,
Bryn

This must be pattern number 9731 and was made in Meadow Green, a highly sought-after colour.Well done. But a photo would be nice just to confirm it.  Emmi

Thanks Emmi,
I will try to add a photo when vase arrives. I added a new Broadband Hub yesterday and what a nightmare that was, just couldn't get it to work. I spent 2 hours on the phone to a call centre in India. I got totally cheesed off and so did they. I closed the computer down and left it for a couple of hours and then restarted it and remarklably it worked but now only 1 of my 8 USB ports works and thats connected to the hub. Now I have been unable to download any photos from my camera or upload to my Ipod. My son is a Computer analist so I hope he will be able to fix it. That's enough of my inane drivel. Have a nice day :spls: ;D

 We all want to see it.   How about a link to the Ebay listing. We can then see what we MISSED,
Regards Patrick.

Hi Patrick,
I managed to download a picture from the auction, as the item is now mine I shouldn't be infringing anyone's copywright should I? Here it is anyway taking a nap :sleep: Hope it comes through, I've been under the weather and haven't listed for many months. 
Cheers,
Bryn

Bryn, yes you are breaching their copyright. You own the item not the photo. Can you provide a link to the listing rather than the pic itself please?

Your right Christine, but it will look really spectacular when it opens up in the summer. ::)
Thanks everyone for your help. I have a lot of spare time on my hands at the moment and Ebay gets a lot of my attention during the times when most people are at work.
Cheers,
Bryn
