Looks very much like a Val St Lambert vase i once had, probably have been signed though :huh:

I could estimate its value for you now, if you wish :'(

How strange

Hi Andy,

You are right, it does look  like Val St Lambert. I had a lamp once very similar in design and colour.

What would you estimate a price? - just so when I am relaying the story to my friends , I can say "... and do you know it could have been worth £xxx to!'  :cry:

Wes  ;D

Hi Wes,
 
i was meaning i could estimate its value as it is now, circa £0
You can tell your friends what you like ;D
(i expect if VSL, 20-50 at a guess, when you tell the story, 200-500 ;) )

£200 - £500 it will be for the interest of the tale.   :chky: I will also expand the bang to being an explosion which had neighbours running for the Anderson shelter!

I once had a Holmegaard suncatcher that turned out to have a sun allergy. I hung it in the evening, and the morning after I was awoken by a pop and a clatter as it clean broke in half in the morning sun. Oddly, the half that fell off and struck the windowsill didn't break further. Glass is a very confusing thing when it comes to its fragility.

But a few dabs of epoxy resin later, and it now hangs in a much shadier window.  :hiclp:

This message sounds like a good opportuntity to mention those cabinet items of yours with the interesting reactions, Leni. :o

Cabinets can suffer from hotspots as the air does not circulate well if airtight. There should be ventilation holes near the top and bottom to prevent this.
