Roise, roughly, I gather VAT is payable on anything over £18 that's anywhere outside the EU. From memory I gather this is going to go down to £15, sometime this year, if it already hasn't! VAT is also not payable for any items purchased under £40, which are classed as a family gift. Septate to VAT, I think Customs Duty is payable on most items over £135, although the rates vary depending on the type of item, imported.

Some of this may have changed slightly this year. Just looking, I think VAT itself is not always payable, there are a number of factors involved, however, Import VAT is charged on nearly all imports by Customs and Excise, regrettably.

Hi

Just building up my collection again - I do have a lot packed away though

Photos show part of my Aseda collection - red, green and blue bamboo and dogbone vases - I think the latter also came in white (Leslie Pina - Fire & Sea pp130) - also large vase (pp128) and elongated bottle vase that I attribute to Aseda but could be Gullaskruf, also a smaller flattened off red version with made in Sweden sticker and remains of Aseda sticker

Riihimaen showing some well known vases - I have a lot more packed away

I would look hard in the Whitefriars catalog for the large blue/green vase.  And at Caithness for the right hand twosome.

Don't know what happened there - I was commenting on a collection I can't find any more.    ?????

My Welsh collection has just tripled.  Had the obelisk pwt for some time.  Bought the first swan off Ebay(in England) and the day after it arrives, there at the local op-shop is its cousin!  :spls:

I'm so glad I came over to this page, Ross. I've been scutinising and scrutinising Adam's and Leni's pics.... and wondering what on earth you were on..... or what I was missing!  :spls:

Just thought Rosie may like to see my birds - What do you do on a 42C day? stay in the airconditioning and redo the display cabinet of course  ;D
Will post the last two pics on the next page.

Birds and ducks from Cenedese (5) , Generic Murano (7) Wedgwood (1) and a glass penguin souvenir from Penguin Island Victoria Aust (probably made in China)

Enjoy!
