Cheers Rosie  :kissy: a cheerful and helpful reply has always, I think what threw me was the Italian sounding name on something that instinct automatically led me to Scandinavia Lol not knocking Dartington but it's a quality piece that I would never have even considered Dartington?

Funnily enough, I was at the A3 bootfair this morning....8am :o, (had to leave earlier than would have liked, as OH was a bit poorly  :cry:), but whilst we were there, I looked at a stand that had over a dozen of these beautiful Capredoni pieces, and you are so right, they are every bit as good as Mats Jonasson's work.  :)
