You'd be better selling them separately. It's too much of a mix to appeal and too much postage if someone only wants one of them. You also need to give sizes and describe condition to the tiniest detail. PW collectors are fussy and often collect limited fields.

Perhaps it's because they're not much of a bargain. The last Fire dance sold for £11.50, the Isle of Wights swirls are going for similar prices and Guernsey paperweights for less. Don't know about the St Kilda.

I think I saw that firedance on ebay but it was a second? and the center bubble was elongated. What,in ur opinion, is a fare price for the 4 of them?..I honestly do not know.
