Whitefriars ????

I think that this paperweight is more likely Chinese...I've told the seller, so we'll see if he changes it.

I think the neg on page 2 of the ebay feedback sums up his/her attitude to glass  :o :o

I emailed the seller, too.  Let's see what happens. 

Mind you, if you tell sellers they've made a mistake nothing is done, if you report them to ebay nothing is done, why do we bother, I sometimes wonder? 


EDIT:

Oh, I take it back!  They've withdrawn the auction! :o  ::)
