I'm selling some glass on ebay right now. Most of the items I have had help with here with identification and I would like to thank you all for your help.

Here is a link to the Strathearn PSF 142 faceted paperweight see 'other items for sale' also

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150557631736&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

I'm also selling the Elio Raffaeli signed Murano Blue Bird, a Caithness 10th wedding anniversary paperweight from the 1970's and the Orrefors Optic vase plus a Caithness Twirl  !

Thanks for having a look and I hope they can go to collectors ! Thanks again, Mike.
Mike

Go'dayyy Jak ,

Thanks for your interest in the Strathearn...it is a corker ! If you could send a messages through ebay to me than I will have your ebay user name and will then be able to add you to my list of favoured colonials so you should then be able to bid. I think postage to Downunder is approx. £10 . Good luck if you bid !  Mike  :sc:

Cheers Jak & Carol ,

I can't work out how to do it ! It was possible to do at one time; perhaps ebay have changed this option . I have changed the listings to Worldwide posting so you should be able to bid now . I will reply via ebay too. Thanks for your interest. Ta , Mike.

Thanks for the opportunity to bid Mike - sorry i didn't get either of them. UK auctions end in the middle of the night here, so I set my bids up and go off to bed - but often find I've been outbid before the auction ends. Never mind - still prefer living over here  :phew: JAK

Ta, Jak !

There was a real increase in interest once I changed the listings to worldwide posting. Sorry you missed out , other examples might pop-up ! That's what is so addictive about ebay !

Do you miss fish & chips ?!!!   :cheers: Mike

no I don't miss fish and chips Mike - there is a chippy about ten minutes walk from my house! and I have even found a chippy that sells mushy peas (not that I can eat chips now - too fattening ) (When I visit UK I always head for a chippy though - but by about day 3 I am sick of the junk food.)

Perths population is  80% Australian, 12 % British 2% New Zealand plus others. Given that most of those classed as Australian and New Zealanders are of UK stock too - it is a very Anglicised culture here.  :usd: just with sunshine and better food  ;D

Back to Ebay listings - most of the things I buy come from overseas - many sellers specifically list the countries they sell to  eg: N. and S. America, Europe, Asia, Australia , as an alternative to worldwide.

remember too that other currencies like the Aus dollar are very strong against the £ at present - so it means we can bid more - so that is good for you!
