Simply highlight the information displayed in the Address bar at the top of the Ebay page then copy and paste it into here..... a bit like Tinypic if you've used that.... This is it

This Higgins topic is something of a revelation... something in the past I might have easily walked past ... but not now

That's a great piece of flip art. If anyone ever comes across a piece of higgins signed "Frances Higgins"...BUT IT!!! Those are by far the most valuable. I'm not lucky enough to own a piece, but I have seen them at a great modernism show here in the states. I really like those early pieces.

I can't imagine much made it's way to Europe so you guys will have to fight eager dollars on Ebay.

I live three hours from where its made. I have a  few pieces and I know the reason I obtained them is because the person selling did not know what they had. I do see Higgins from time to time in the antique shops, but the prices are way out of my league. And I forsee the prices continuing to climb. Terry

Thats an incredible piece of art work Paul!  I'm green with envy :mrgreen:  

Any thoughts on how you are going to display it to its best advantage?

I've just sent out the old man to suss out glass shelves at B.&.Q for my glass.  Then I'll have to look at lighting methinks! :roll:  If I had your Higgins' piece, it would take centre-stage :P

Great piece, Paul.

Does anyone know how the new pieces are marked?

I found some info on the different markings in Designed and Signed (sorry out of town and can't remember the entire title of the book) which explained the difference in the engraved marks on the back versus the gold lettering on the front.

Is all Higgins valued the same or is one era more valuable than others, besides the pieces signed Frances Higgins?
