A bit of showing off
« on: January 19, 2013, 03:51:18 PM »
OK, a lot of a showing off. These are just fabulous. I walked on air for about a fortnight after I picked them up for a snip. Made in Webb's 1866 honeycomb mould design in about 1902 in its patented Alexandrite

And even more glorious in reality... one of these was the true star of the fair in B'ham last November and some of us were even allowed to touch it and hold it up to the light and see all its glory from different angles.  8)

Tell the truth, Christine. You're still walking on air.  ;)

The second pic is really good - you've managed to catch the fabby blue colour at the top. Not a shred of chocolate brown in these glasses - all absolutely perfect and as they should be. sigh.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Keith, I think we ought to start following this lady around  (Mr. Green).     Could break out in a sweat just thinking about them - why did you have to go and say a 'snip', makes it even worse;D           Congrats. Christine

I didn't have to be excited on my own; David and Patricia were with me, albeit in another room. We agreed with the ladies on the desk that they were very pretty while trying not to grin like Cheshire cats
