Sue, I think it is YOUR comments here are inappropriate.
Chris was NOT asking for information, he was simply sharing his find with us all, and quite rightly expected a degree of enthusiasm and some positive comments on this beautiful piece.
His ultimate goal was to ensure that Shiona was aware of it. And quite rightly when she did see it described it as being a piece to treasure.
Chris's comments on the apparent lack of interest from those we would all expect to be thrilled to have the chance to see this piece, are, sadly, very true.
Had YOU found it and listed it as a 'show and tell', I feel certain that you would have been as hurt as I suspect Chris was.
He has a website that he freely gives access to all of you here on the GMB and I for one am getting rather irritated by the lack of appreciation given for this.
