Is bobbly glass a technical term?  ;D

No wonder not many people bid on it. It's sideways.

It's amazing how many people haven't discovered the rotate picture option you have in the simplest of photo programs

Not only do they not know how to rotate their image, their packing leaves a lot to be desired too. I had a shock when the postman called this morning, firstly because I was not expecting a parcel today but secondly when I realised what it was. :o :spls: It had been packed into a 2" deep box with lid which covered half the unprotected vase, the lid  held to the base by 2 strips of packing tape leaving much of the vase in view which had been pushed into an exact fit jiffy bag!
Amazingly it survived the journey intact and looking great but HOW!. When I think of all the fuss I make in packing it makes you wonder. Firstly the box must be sturdy, then I usually cover the item in tissue then  numerous layers of small bubble wrap, then possibly large bubble  and then surround the "mummy" in the box with polystyrene chips, and always remembering to fragile tape the box .
How lucky am I! Phew!!! :spls2:

 :o :o Perhaps you were lucky cos the post people could see what it was. You won't be adding them to your list of favourite sellers then? But at least you have a whole vase and we can have some better pictures

Hmm, "Better photos" now that's another story Christine. But I think I will take that problem to the cafe.
