Confused Re:- Walther Glass - Galleon
« on: September 17, 2008, 02:32:47 AM »
Hi all...

I've been told that if the Galleon figure is made only as figure (can't fit into the flower frog) and sits on a black plinth / stand, then the galleon is known as "SEGELBOOT"

Then, if the Galleon sits on the Shamrock bowl, the set is known as "SHAMROCK"

However, I'm confused when this Galleon is sitting on the large Waterlily bowl. Sometimes, the set is called "NELSON" but sometimes they are known as "SEGELSCLIFF". Can anyone here explain please? :huh:

Cheers..Brenton
