... I agree about the price. If you intend to sell it by auction then set a reserve, and just as REX & Theresa suggest, should it not sell then keep it. Its value is not destined to diminish and there are many collectors who would wish this piece. The bowls themselves are often seen, the cockatoo's less so, and as for the sets?
I have not seen one being offered online in blue glass for as long as I can remember. 

Blimey! One would think that ANY package would be insured against LOSS subject of course to having the item Recorded or whatever. I totally agree, "LOSS" should be the responsibilty of ANY courier! Damage is one thing, but if a courier cannot carry without losing, then perhaps they should consider a change of career? lol
