Keith that's a nice one!  I love these, got a large shelf full right across my kitchen wall. Never seen that pattern before, I take it it's not a common one?    Cheryl

I'm waiting for my last two children to leave home so I can take over their bedrooms!    ;D  I also think I have a problem!!!!!   All the different colours look beautiful , they get a lot of attention from visitors.   Cheryl

Well found Keith - there are not many of those to the pound!

I have now nailed down the correct name for this pattern: Mesh. While this contradicts the names previously given in Chance Expressions, this was due to the information being available at that time, and I was relying on the memories of former workers - often very good, but fallible. This is corrected in Chance Additions.

I dread to think how many I have - possibly three figures - but only a few choice ones are on display, like Cut Pearl and the other Intaglio models.

Thanks David, what made it better was that it cost me less than half what my brother paid for his, where's that smug icon ?  ;D ;D ;D
