Nice find Adam,I've a number of RB studio pieces,the link was interesting,I wonder if Mark Hill still has the info' he talked about,he's not been on the board for ages,too busy producing tv prog's I suppose,not been to Portobello in years,is it still way over priced and packed with tourists?

Thanks Keith.

Portobello Road was very busy on Saturday.  I got there late and a lot of stall holders had shut by 3.00, but even at that there was only one or two glass sellers, it was 90% silver and jewellery which didn't impress me. I doubt if I will go again. There was one bric-a-brac shop at the top near Notting Hill and I bought a few pieces, one was glued and split later and another was chipped - still full price and not described as such, I suppose buyer beware, but I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Adam
