Thanks Pain.

They seem to list the basic 22.5cm vase, whereas mine is the far superior 16.7cm version (joke)!  Good thing it's not all about the money, eh?

I think this one is a keeper from my perspective though.  I don't want to upset anyone, but if you put this next to a clear bark Whitefriars of the same sort of size, I know which I would choose.

I was thinking about saying that I think Whitefriars is really overrated, but that might be pushing things too far for a newbie like me!

Here's another photo of the vase close up.  This bit really really really looks like ice when the light hits it.  Genius.  So happy with it!!!  I don't care how sad this sounds.
