Been watching these Cathy and whilst they are fabulous decorative items as well as being extremely rare I actually find them less interesting than some of the other more common items, but I guess it's whatever floats your boat which is what makes all this collecting so fascinating.

Well with me it's certainly love, I've just my 3rd piece from across the pond, so will post a piccy when it turns up. It must be catching because I was talking to one of my customers who collects top end Moorcroft and he's asked me to take my bits along to my August bank holiday fair in Suffolk so he can come and have a look. It's really taken his fancy. The crying shame is it's all in the USA as customs are proving a bit brutal on imports at the moment.

Oh dear...that set of Higgins glass made me feel all weepy and emotional.  That only happens when I find something really beautiful.   :cry:  :cry:

I love it.  :lol:  It reminds me of 1960s fabric designs (Mary Quant).  Those were the days! :cry:

Sorry but I have to say eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! not my cuppa at all. But then this one isn't either, but hey a bargain is a bargain LOL
http://tinypic.com/alge1i.jpg  I have a friend in Atlanta who has collected Higgins for years and I can't bring myself to give him this one. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, nuff said. Terry

I must admit there is quite a lot of Higgins work that doesn't do it for me no matter how rare it might be to the purist collectors, but some other pieces are just so exciting and vibrant so plenty to keep me poor for some time to come.

Hi Anne
It's called sunset and is the red colour version of my blue Midnight piece. It's on my wish list but finances temper my enthusiasm a tad.
