Honestly?  no birds are not my thing really , but this one, I have to say, has some beautiful colours in it and is very pretty.   I'll list it probably,  but as Chinese  :sun:- I just knew I had to buy it (hoping from memory it was the same kind you were discussing) so there was proof :rah:  yes, of course it's fine to use the pics and they are in this thread anyway.

They all have lovely colours and I am not the least bit worried that they are made in China....I like what I like, and don't like what I don't like, if that makes sense? :usd:

Was it one of the ones on eBay?  Wouldn't it have been a hoot if it was one I was selling m? :24:

No, I just picked it up today - have you got ones with labels then?  I thoughts you hadn't which was why you couldn't convince people they were Chinese.  or did I misunderstand and spend money I needn't have  ::)

Hi m,  yes, I have ones with labels....there is a pic of one label on the eBay listing I had......did you pay a lot for it, and was it new or from a second hand source?  I ask because they keep getting described as Vintage!!

I find that because they are in different colours, unless I have one of each colour with a label, the seller will say 'That's not the same as mine....mine is Murano / Langham / Wedgwood / Wedgewood (aaaagh!!) / Isle of Wight!! :thud:

Let me know if you list it....you never know, I might even buy it!
