Hi Connie - no I didn't mean to suggest you were (the old problem with the written word :oops: ). I was just trying to say that I'm not much use in helping on the actual item. I only looked in that book 'cos you suggested it was where to go - and it was :lol:
I was trying to paraphrase rather than quote directly - I understood from what the book said, that Edward Paul had imported from Europe previously, and that "during the second world war" they used Fenton because of obvious supply issues. I quoted all the colors mentioned for that item - and no topaz opal. It would seem, therefore, given your extra info about the timeline for that color, it must have been made at the later date (and not before WW2). What do you reckon, Connie?
