No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

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  They've withdrawn the auction!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  ::)
