Just had to show off my latest 'Triffid'! :lol: http://tinypic.com/view/?pic=oqaiyw I found this little treasure at Dagfields while visiting Crew to see my other new little treasure :wink: http://tinypic.com/view/?pic=oqaovo
It's one of the finest I've seen. (I'm talking about the triffid now, by the way, not my new granddaughter - although she's one of the best, too! :wink: ) It measures 5 and a half inches high and 4 inches across. Of course it has a tiny chip off one 'toe' :roll: but it's perfect in every other respect. It looks as if it's been in a cabinet most of its life! It's certainly never had water in it! There's not a trace of scale or water damage :shock:
and every tiny 'thorn' is there, and none are sharp! Yippee! I'm thrilled with it!
There was a lot of glass there, but I showed admirable control :roll: (unlike husband, who has now earned himself the nick-name 'Abenazer' because of his habit of collecting old, broken oil-lamps :twisted: )
I agonised about leaving some which I thought might be Whitefriars, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to risk it!
I have learned a lot on this board, but since I don't collect (or even actually like much :oops: ) Whiltefriars, several 'bargains' at £5 or so had to be left on the shelves! :shock: :roll:
No, I think I'll just stick to my 'Triffid's and 'Audrey's :lol:Mod: The picture linnk is broken. If you own this glass and you still have a photograph, contact a mod so that we can arrange to restore images to the thread.
