Pricing for a Holmegaard Aristocrat Decanter...

(1/2) > >>

Pinkspoons:
I was hunting for an Aristocrat decanter as a present for someone, and stumbled across one in near-immaculate condition (no label, unfortunately, though) for a big hefty price of £210. I always thought these retailed at around the £100-ish mark.

Is it a rip-off, or have average prices genuinely increased?

I know this is a very very specific question, but any help would be greatly appreciated. If I'm unlikely to be able to source one reasonably quickly for around my presupposed £100-150 mark, then I can stretch to the £210 without feeling unduly cheated.  :D

Thanks.

Ivo:
I think too few of these change hands to really establish a value from sales records for the specific item, so it is just a matter of looking at other Holmegaard auction results. Check E-bay completed auctions - then look at Tradera.se. As far as I can see there no Holmie hype going on.

Pinkspoons:
Thanks for the directions, but alas, there're no Aristocrats either live or ended recently...

And you don't want to know what turns up when you type 'Aristocrat' into Tradera!!!  :shock: Holmegaard it isn't.

I shall continue my search, although I suspect I may have to grit my teeth and shoo the moths from my wallet to get what I want.  :(

Pinkspoons:
Fortune shines upon the persistent... I found one in a shop being sold as Blenko for £50.

*phew*

Talk about one in a million chance!
