missing the forth blue bird
Dear all, I have purchased this from Tracy lately and unfortunately one of the BLUE birds is missing
OF course I shall take this one with me to that exhibition at Karrasburg, Coswig, but would of course like it to be complete in just  blue at that time
anyone?

Hi Pamela,

I know I am late with this reply, but were you able to find the missing bird? If not I would be willing to loan you one from my set, to be returned to me at the end of the exhibition. Let me know if you are interested.

Regards,
Barb.

thank you very much, Barb, in fact, it's quite late, because exhibition ends mid November already...
There was no time to photograph it for the pavillon before it went, so still not uploaded.

But you could do me a great favour mailing some nice photos of your complete set and allowing me to upload these instead?

Hi Pamela,

I'm happy to photograph it for you, although my bowl was badly broken in the post and I have glued it back together until I can find a replacement. Not sure how good the photos would look...but I'll take some and let you decided if they are okay to be uploaded. Please let me know your email address.

Regards,
Barb.

Hello Everyone,

Yes, a great shame about the blue bowl. I hope that I will be able to find a replacement bowl, sometime soon - fingers crossed.  I was very lucky to be bidding on the bird flower frog about the same time Nige offered the bowl as a swap.  I just love Brockwitz glass so was very excited to be able to put the set together. I enjoy it even with the damaged bowl! A big Thank You to Pamela and Nige.

Best Regards,

Barb.

Barb, are you still around GMB, please?

I was offered an intact blue bowl today - would happily transmit this offer if I knew your current email address
