It's possible it's a Caithness sample, as Dartington Crystal owns them both...

Keith, it's well worth visiting Chris if you can - his collection (read: hoard) is amazing.

(Sound of jaw hitting floor, etc.)  :o  ;D

Got to pack a hundred tomorrow reached my quota although it's great the extra space, was at broad field house this morning it looks like it's closing early August until next May or June criminal really the building is beautiful (it's not a hoard Dave but near).

The point about the building, nice as it is, is that it's not actually in Stourbridge and rather remote from Red House site and Ruskin Centre - the museum has only been at the house for 35-ish years so there's no real historical link there. Added to this, accessibility is over four floors and not for the disabled or elderly. At least the museum is moving to the White House site (opposite the Red House), although admittedly space will not be as much.

Did you see Patricia's collection of bulb vases on the top floor? See her web site

These are destined for packing in the morning, a nice murano fish tank, a  piece of I think walsh uranium, a Richardson firing glass circa 1875, a piece of Kerry glass although it might be early isle of wight with the flame pontil and a piece of burtles and tate from 24/2/1870. Not an Elton fan but he was pretty good.

Interesting to hear what's happening with Broadfield House - such a great place to visit but not at all disabled or elderly friendly.

PS Elton is up here tonight, playing at Crooklands of all places (translates as an agricultural showground in the middle of nowhere!)
