I'm having a problem accessing whitefriars.com

The Hajdamach book is not that helpful on the Stuart similarities. My other generalist reference books are useless in this case.

whitefriars.com is working fine for me. There's nothing similar in Nigel's book Art Deco to Post-Modernism

Looks like Stuart amber to me, but naturally I'd prefer to hande (well own) them before I made a definative answer.

Nice pair of vases  ;)

Thanks Nigel.

Obviously I'd like to be able to ID them before I sell ...
