Found one on ebay, and i must say they are asking a hefty price on a buy it now listing !! i might just tell my freind Kath to list it herself, she would be better off in the long run, as although i like the design i would'nt want to pay that much myself  :wsh:

They can ask thousands.... Selling prices are a better guide than asking prices.

Just had a look at the listing and I wonder if it will sell at that price, I don't follow Dartington prices but from the few bits I have sold I suspect that it is quite 'hopeful'. It might fetch that in Kingfisher, more in flame.

Posted 1st class recorded, superb packaging but guess what, a whacking great scratch right around the inside rim probably done with a diamond ring when cleaning.
Oh well, i didnt pay a lot £20 and i have a rarish example in Kingfisher  :-\

:( that's not good that it wasn't mentioned if it wasn't. What was the description?  can you not return it at all?

Sorry to hear this.

Not sure if you can see the scratch, it was difficult to photograph as iy is inside near the bottom of the upper part of the vase, does that make sence??

If sellers do not mention scratches I usually ask.

Somebody told me (or did I read it on the board) that if you rub a little silicone oil on the scratch it will disappear, it will of course reappear if you wash the vase. Maybe a simpler solution than having it polished.

It's not just toddlers that have trouble with small parts you know. ;D
