« on: January 26, 2012, 06:31:10 PM »
A plea to all my GMB colleagues.....the unthinkable has happened....I have broken the wing on my precious Shirley Elford Angel......I am beside myself with grief.....it was my most precious glass Angel and I must have another one.

If any of you have one for sale, or see one that is for sale,  PLEASE tell me.....those of you who know me well will know how precious this Angel is to me............PLEASE HELP.
Rosie.

Oh no, Rosie.   :hug:

Edited to add:  Perhaps you can take your angel to a glass doctor?  I'm sure there is someone who has the skill to make your angel whole again.

Not sure IF they have any pieces there or not ???? but they do mention her Glass.  You could contact them and see IF they do, or IF they know of where some might be.

Worth a try ????  Maybe :  http://www.hotfrog.ca/Companies/Clairford-Glass

Or even here:  http://www.hotfrog.ca/Companies/Shirley-Elford

or HERE, maybe   to see IF they have any -- or know where.  They all have email address I think
