Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

Thank you, Pamela  :)

Unfortunately, I still don't know if there was any interest in the vase, and if it sold.   :huh:
It's so hard to be patient.

Phone them and ask in the morning, I phoned them Saturday evening to ask about the selling price on a different lot. I wanted to know if my commission bid was enough and did not want to wait until Monday to find out (when I think they send out the invoices).
