For this, I'm almost prepared to sit here and keep refreshing my dial-up connection until the pics are shown - even if takes many, many hours to do so.  ;D

But I think I should really be patient and get some much needed sleep instead (had a full 24 hr day's activity from 5am Sat to 5am Sunday and only a few hours sleep, so far, after that).

I hope to get the pictures posted this evening.  Meanwhile if you are interested by Aunt (Mum's sister) has a signed Vasart Bowl that I think is B022 - though it's more a purple in colour.

Nice paperweight, nice pix BUT you didn't post the "signature" they've all been desperately waiting for  :cry:

Henry, if posting that way is working for you, just keep to it! No-one will mind :) You can add three pictures per page by clicking on the (more attachments) link, which is next to the attachments box.

Alternatively, you could try the Glass Gallery page:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/

which has instructions here:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/glassgallery_help.html

oh, yes, and as Christine says, please, please, please include a photo of the signature :)

Henry, would it be ok if I uploaded your photo's to our GlassGallery?  It's just that imageshack links might not last terribly long and I'd like to retain your links if possible.  Do let me know if that's ok.

...looking forward to seeing that Monart cane too!

I am not a man

My Mum is convinced - and to my eyes it does look possible (and there are no marks of anything similar on any of the other canes) that she can make out M and N and other letters of Monart on the white area at the base of where the cane broadens out. Then again the imagination is a marvellous thing.
