Isle of Wight ,1975, pink & Blue, Saks 5th Avenue NY !

A live ebay auction, (not me)
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390045118347 Mod: dead link but useful info retained in topic

I thought the interesting bit, for Harris fans,  is the sticker on one vase 'Saks of 5th Avenue' !

If you look very carefully next to the IOW flame logo you can see a gold Saks oval label. Had me going for a bit.

Hi Mike,
i didnt quite understand your post

Had you going for a bit? I dont think its a fake sticker , do you?
I presume its genuine and Saks sold IOW glass in the 70s.

Cheers

Absolutely, there's nothing iffy about the Saks label (Mike's comment confused me too!).  Quite a lot of IOW glass was exported to the USA including many Michael Harris signed items.  I have one such piece - a rather ordinary IOW paperweight signed by Michael Harris - but bought from an American collector who himself bought it from a large American department store.
