A very good start to a cold, wet and miserable weekend, Gary.  ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Even better.
My best find this year was a uranium Sowerby "Frog and Bullrushes" bowl - quite a scarce beast.
It was worth a day trip to St. Andrews and having to tolerate being surrounded by Etonians - we went to the rather more civilised Cupar afterwards for respite - my only finds there were a wfs amber swan and a couple of really great '70s Ravenhead "Beer Glasses" - a stupendous and practical design I have recently started acquiring.
Nothing as exciting as this find of yours. 8)
Cheers, Sue (M)

That's very nice Gary. I never see Monart round here at all!

Sue, which Ravenhead beer glasses are they?

I have a boxed pair, so I know they're simply called "Beer glasses", Anne.  :)
They're an unusual shape - the "stem" is part of the glass itself.

Perhaps I should start a thread sometime on the textured/designer-shaped drinking tumblers I've been squirrelling away! I rather like them, but then there was the huge fuss and surge in interest in all the Alexander Hardie-Williams printed tumblers (which I'm not overly fond of) so I reckoned I'd been pipped at the post regarding any tumbler followers!
I still really prefer the textured/designer-shaped ones.

this is the "Beer glass". :)

Sorry for hi-jacking, Gary. And yes, It's a great buzz - spotting something on the shelf, making a bee-line for it, trying not to get over-excited because it's probably broken, getting it in your mitts and then checking and checking and checking for damage, excitement rising as none is found... or serious pissadointment when it is!
