Who said Chance glass wasn't collectable?
« Reply #50 on: May 26, 2006, 09:24:26 AM »
Glad you spoke to your Mom :wink:

I've starting to log all the eBay sales of select vases (trying to monitor every single Cordon or Bandell would be a nightmare :o ). The only 7" Gingham that's sold in the last 30 days is a white one and this reached £28. However, I think they should do much better.

IF they still have their labels, then the price goes absolutely mad: a 4" yellow gingham with label got £26.56! But a 5" Cordon in orange with label (but looking like a 4"!) – the plain pinstripe – recently got £74.50 :shock:  :shock:

The size to always go for is 5" and I only have two myself. These are the scarce ones and should fetch a premium.

EDIT: The 8" ones are not very common either, but in all likelihood, your Mom's are 7" high (but pray for 5" :) )

Well I tried mortgaging the dog but who wants an overweight Basset with smelly breath??? although I did find 20p last night on our walk, maybe if I could persuade him to walk a little futher I might find £100 lying around somewhere!

Ah, but I didn't say anything about who to place the bet with - I understand Mr. Ladbroke was very interested... :twisted:
