Hurray for indoor carboots springing up all around Lincolnshire!
And for once I don't need attributions... (see how much I'm improving?!
) ...I just need a few details, if possible!
I bought a Whitefriars 5" duck in Arctic Blue for a piffly Â£3.50, and it's in near-mint condition, except the tip of the beak is slightly sharp - but there doesn't appear to be any obvious chip there, rather it looks like a small part where it wasn't ground down properly - is this common with this piece? It's my first piece of Whitefriars figurative glass, so I'm not overly familiar with them.
Secondly, I spotted a Holmegaard cannister for one new English pound... I've seen this attributed to Jacob E. Bang, and as being from around 1930 - can anyone verify this, and does anyone know the name of the design? (My camera has eaten all of my batteries, so I'll just link to one of the same on eBay for now!)http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7367581085&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1
The duckie will probably end up on eBay in a month or so, but the Holmegaard is staying forever... and ever... and ever... :twisted:
Any help, as usual, greatly appreciated. Thanks!
