How much for this Perthshire ???
« on: August 13, 2008, 10:58:16 AM »

What am I missing with this item (apart from the possibility of selling my low end Perthshire for high end prices)?

Wow.

I could make a tidy sum with my little collection of general range weights.

Not that I would want to part with any of them.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

If you look at the bidding, it has gone quite normally up to $68 then two bidders have taken it up to the current $305. This is either a bidding frenzy - whereby the bidders have lost the sense of reason, or......... well I'm not sure what.  It's a nice enough PP1 - but what would we say - $150 top whack on a good day with a following wind? 

I also have plenty - form a queue!  .

Perhaps some people decide reasonable prices by comparing good, standard Perthshire Paperweights items with not-so-nice Vasart ones which make much more than $150?!!

Not even a PP1.  This looks like a PP2.  The seller gives the diameter as 2 1/2 inches.

Interesting bidding.  In the world of Poole Pottery on ebay there have been a lot of hacked account bids, Ive not worked out what they hope to achieve, but Ive had it done to me, someone bid over £350 for something worth £200, then tries the "Ill send you a cheque for £3000, can you send the balance on in a cheque" approach.......
