Auction title: WHITEFRIARS MURANO LANGHAM CAITHNESS SCOTLAND GLASS PAPERWEIGHT FLOWER DRAGONFLY

... and in the description: AS I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE AFTERWARDS AS MY LISTING CLEARLY STATES UNKNOWN ARTIST

Funny way to describe an unknown artist :grrr:

BTW - I had written to the seller it would be Chinese - but who would suggest Whitefriars or Caithness or Mdina or Ysart ??

I suspect the seller knows that they have a lot of cheap modern Chinese, and are trying to fool the gullible. Use the 'report this item' feature on the eBay item page, and complain about the misleading title.
