Oh that is quite lovely! :)  Could I ask if you would be kind enough to add copies of the pics onto the board as well please, as I cannot ever view images on Photobucket as our network security settings block them from showing. (Pb seems to be persona non grata with our network!) I'm sure some others will have similar issues with off-board image services too. Thanks in hope. :)

Anne the size limit is a problem as the images are measured in mb put I will reduce as best as I can and post in two bites.
Watch this space!

Thank you so much. If you need help in resizing images there are links to some free to use online resizers (with guidance for settings) in our help forum here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,34093.0.html but if they are still too big do feel free to send me copies via email and I'll resize them here and add them for you. yobunny AT hotmail.co.uk will reach me (close up the gaps and change AT to @). :)

Oh thank you for adding these pictures, I'm loving this colour combination, it's just so attractive. I have this fantasy that one day I'll find some of these in a charity shop or at a boot fair, but meanwhile I'll enjoy your photos. :)

The goblet label is marked QC X1 that I presumed was shape and size however I have searched the shape and size in the catalogues and I cannot find goblets like these.
Similarily the vase is nearly a standard shape but not quite  and the 141mm height  or 5 3/4 in old money seems out of the ordinary.
So were all the pieces for the Perth Wedding gift specials as regards shape and size and colourway?
As the vase is not shown in the boardroom picture and considering the above is this vase somewhat unique?
What shape and size code would you allocate to the vase?

The three remaining pieces that Wendy has all have some minor small dark inclusions and the goblets show distinct pattern differences as regard spread of 'Gold' flecks / height of blue.
I presume that this pattern variation is the reason it was neccessary to make more than were needed and to select from those made only those that closely matched each other.
Please folks shine a wee light into this mirk!

The goblet is shape QC and the size code X1 which in the Monart catalogue is 75mm tall, the vase is A shape in the Monart catalogue. As the vase stands 141mm tall and is in between the size code of V11 and 1X it would be 1X+.
