F M RONNEBY SWEDEN 1980s DOLPHIN
« on: June 01, 2009, 04:11:52 PM »
Hi everyone....was so excited when I found this message board......Back in the early 1980s, certainly before 1985, I found a wonderful F M Ronneby Sweden dolphin. However, it was only a couple of days ago that I found this message board. Imagine my excitement. Have been trying desperately to add a photo but keep getting message to say pic too large despite it being a jpg.........if anyone would like to see a photo please do tell and I will sent it to you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. p.s. Have tried to find similar dolphin but no luck........the more modern ones are very different

Mod: Photo further down

Hi there....thanks for your email and info. Will try different programme tomorrow for photos.......No....my dolhin is nothing like the photo.......much more stylish.....clear glass with 2 colours sea green and dark jade. Much better shape than the more modern ones. If I am unable to load pics, is it allowed for me to put a link to an online photo site?. Thanks again. Best Jo

I saw one of these at Spitalfields covered market, there's a little antique/vintage shop there.  Seeing this one kinda makes me wish I'd bought one when I saw it.  I don't think it was terribly expensive and I thought it seemed like good value at the time.  Is the signature on the nose of yours Jollyjot?
