Bernard C:
Pops — A similar set I saw a few years back had forts at each end, in between the two curved fortified walls, so that all the way around forts alternated with walls.   I don't think it really matters — it is the condition and completeness of your set that is exceptional.

As a table centre it would have been laid out with perhaps a couple of epergnes in the centre.   ... and I am using the word in its widest sense to mean any ornamental flower or foliage holder.

I've not seen the complete ring, and would welcome a photograph if any kind GMB member could oblige.

popsmcchicken:
Many thanks, Bernard.  That would be an impressive site, with the epergne in the middle of the display.

=================================================

Glen,

Do you have any pieces that I do not have in the set?  Do you by chance have the round piece, or have you ever seen one, or do you know if it's even from the same line?

=================================================

Glen:
Pops - yes we have the complete ring (the donut shape). It's gorgeous. I'll ask Steve to take a photo for you and Bernard....it may be tomorrow or Saturday.

Glen

PS. Yes it is certainly from the same line - and it's opalescent.

Bernard C:
Glen — Please would you photograph the castellated ring with a fort inside it to give us an idea of scale;  that is if you have a fort handy!

Thanks, Bernard C.  8)

Glen:
Bernard - sorry, no forts to hand, here in my neck of the woods. (Where's Davy Crocket when you need him, eh?) But I can put the ring alongside the curved piece, which will hopefully help. I'll have to wait for Steve to do the photos as I haven't yet mastered the new digital thingummywatchermacallit that he bought.
