For me, it's the reverse painting that interest me, regardless of size.  I would certainly hang on to them for now. ::)    Anyway,  thanks to you all for your contribution to this post.

It is truly a remarkable artform. Only the paperweight style being relevant here... but wow, when you start to look into it and see what has been achieved.... I need a new interest like a hole in the head  ::)
