Christine, I think we were writing at the same time, and so I have only just seen your additional pictures!!!
The saddest thing is, if you go to that sellers 'completed' listings, you can see that this was a complete trinket set, that they have broken up to sell, and now the set is split up, probably forever, and one lpoor little dish hasn't been sold, and I think that is just AWFUL!  Some people spend years trying to match up sets that have been separated......it is as bad as breaking up books to make framed pictures.....sacrilege!!! :spls: :spls: :spls:

Rosie, I have just read that ONLY on eBay.de 18 million articles are availaible ! (for those who read German: www.wortfilter.de !!) How could they have experts for the goods offered worldwide? They only have experts in printing money  >:D ::) :-X
But still I think, with a little intuition - and you seem rich of that - it's a place to find what looking for - if you know what I mean..
Sorry for my English, I repeat: school is long ago  :angel:

Oh Pamela, if I could speak your language as well as you speak mine I would be a happy person!!
I do speak Swahili though......not many do these days!!
You are right, there are millions of items listed......perhaps I should be more realistic!
Hope you have enjoyed this 'Penny Lick' story..............I have!
I hope the seller gets his money back.......

money back if wanted by the buyer or seller? I vote for the buyer if he/she realizes at all - which I suspect  :D

It's been a loooooooooooooong day................I meant the BUYER!!! :-[ Yes, the buyer does know, Pamela.

Incidentally, is the GMB clock correct?? It seems to be running a bit on the early side? Or is it me??

At the risk of being dumped into the Cafe (or just deleted), I will offer a reply to the question:

Why don't eBay have a team of people (experts like yourselves perhaps) checking the listing for blatantly phoney items?
Because eBay are not interested in truth - just profits.

That mustn't stop us trying to put things right though, must it?

So long as topics don't breach board guidelines Rosie. :)

Is the server time out again? I'll go hassle the techs about it (again!) Thanks for the heads up! ;)

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!

A similar thing happened to me. My fiance (now my husband of 20 years) and I spent days and days trying to find a crystal pattern that we liked to register for. Finally found a loved etched (not cut) crystal glass with thistles on it by Bohemian Glass. Went over to my Mum and Dad's for dinner on the weekend, and what should I see in her china cabinet, but three parfait glasses with the same design.

Turns out my grandparents had similar tastes, back in 1918 (ish) when they got married.  :chky: :chky:

Just harking back to the mention of someone looking into wrongly listed items, and still on the subject of 'penny licks', would you think this is a 'penny lick', it is listed as one, with a little aside to say it might have been an eye bath.

or as a nurse, am I correct in thinking this is a load of eyewash!?
I think I might have one of these as well, in blue!
Can we have a smiley for 'tearing your hair out' please!!?
