In case anyone is offered or sees these offered for sale anywhere...  reportedly described by Cumbria Police as " two particularly rare examples of early 19th century* Lalique glassware.... a Lalique mermaid dish and Lalique glass bowl", please contact Cumbria Police on 0845 33 00 247.

* I think they mean early 20th century!

Surely you can't be doubting the word of the police, Anne? In any case it must be true - it's in the papers!  ;D ROFL

They must be really rare, cos they're antique "crockery"  :24: :24:
