Whitefriars squirrel????or Murano??
« on: October 22, 2010, 05:46:40 PM »
Hello Peeps! :hi:

I collect glass squirrels, and have seen this one advertised on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110598588944&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

It says it is Whitefriars.

Please would the Whitefriars boffins amongst you look and see if they think it is for me please?

Personally, I was never aware that Whitefriars made squirrels, and this looks more like Murano to me.

All help, as always, very much appreciated. :sun:
Rosie.

Hah!  Much as I thought! >:D  She has done this so often, and I see she lists as Private listing so you can't even warn the buyer! :o
I truly don't approve of private listings, sellers or the like!
Do you think it might be Murano?
I was waiting for your comment that I don't only collect squirrels, Pip!!

As long as you don't use anyone else's photo's of them in there, that's fine.   ;) :chky:
