I brought one at a car boot a few years back  & was convinced it was a very unstable glass, to be fair it was sold standing that way up ;D
I did feel a bit of a fool when i found out, I sold it as Dartinton ring holder i believe i got 20 something so the price is not to far away

I have informed the buyer, and I hope he takes this seller to task, as I think he knew it wasn't a 'penny lick' when he listed it, and certainly had ample opportunity to change the listing before sale ended.

Rosie - do be careful, this could be construed as 'auction interference'. Whilst I agree entirely that this seller was wrong not to change the listing when presented with your proof, in fact many of us on this board also contact sellers on eBay to help with correcting mistakes and misattributions, but to contact their buyer after the sale has ended is something else altogether and really not to be advised.  Personally, I usually inform the seller if I think they've made a glaring mistake and then just leave it - it's their conscience that has to live with it.

Thanks for your advice Pip......I will be careful, promise.

Now, this is quite spooky...........but ABSOLUTELY true! :angel:

I was giving a Crystal Therapy Treatment this morning when I went to the cabinet to get some crystals out, and as I looked at the top shelf, I was stopped in my tracks...............I noticed this, [pic 1]which I have had for years, my sister found it in a charity shop, and gave it to me to put one of my larger spheres on!

I took it out of the cabinet and looked at it in more detail.[pic2]

Have I got a Dartington ring tree? [pic3].

Or is it a rare 'penny lick'? [pic4]

This is the ABSOLUTE truth :angel:.........I can't believe I had one all the time!!! ;D

It's true, I was stunned!! :o
Not too sure that the second one is a penny lick either. I think it would look lovely with a few flowers or a small bulb in it?
By the way, if you can use the pictures of the Ring Holder (either way up!) for your Presglass pavillion ( I know it isn't pressed glass), then please feel free.
Oh this has been a great day......I will dine out on this for ages! :clap:

That second one is a cheap modern crocus vase! I'd like to see anyone get their tongue to the bottom!!!!!!!!! I suppose they go with the upside down candlestick bowls http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110278596381and the ringtree preserve disheshttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110278596948 I found last week

Rosie, I think your pennylick is a Frank Thrower one. I'll look it up when I get home.

I am pretty certain it is Christine.....I just can't believe that I didn't realise I had one all the time!

There was me incensed at the thought that this eBayer had been duped!

Why don't eBay have a team of people (experts like yourselves perhaps) checking the listing for blatantly phoney items? 
On a few occasions, I have been known to email a seller to help with identification, or spelling,                   (Wegdewood for instance!).
Perhaps I shouldn't, but I would like to be helped if I were selling on eBay. I just seem to buy, buy, buy!! Then dust, dust, dust!
