No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

is another seller who doesn't care about advice  >:( - I informed him that neither of the three weights is Caithness - definitely not - but two would be Murano and the last one (but I wasn't sure) could be Japanese.

Response: "thank you."

When I responded that the point of the exercise was to correct the incorrect description, or at least publish the comment under questions, so that potential bidders could make up their minds, his (her?) response was "Not to worry" .... in other words: it's not my business if he cheats customers ?

I have almost despaired of these types, Wolf,  I have one seller that the glass bird she describes as Murano is Chinese.  I collect these, and was trying to help her...she has said I am harassing her and will go to the Police!! How paranoid is that? Needless to say, she hasn't changed the listing and even though I have asked eBay to tell her it isn't Murano, noting has been done!!
I give up!

I know you are right Roger,  but perhaps if everyone told her it was Chinese, she might change it!
