No, we are deprived, Flying-free.

I don't know if I consider 5 early early Fishies to be greedy, Nemmie - I know John works very, very hard indeed finding stuff, I think he deserves a bit of slack for making such finds, it's the justified reward for the effort.

(But I am madly jealous of this new Fish. In the nicest possible way I can manage.)


Cheers, Sue (M)

I was following Johns logic re: my two large Aurene globe vases which was why there was a smiley at the end.

Personally I don't find hunting down early Mdina or Isle of Wight to be hard work but if it is I also do a lot of it :)

 ;D Don't fret, Nemmie, I did notice your big grin!
I hardly see any common Mdina around here, far less anything early or unusual, and quite frankly, I've just about given up looking.
I'm not able to drive, so getting up regularly at 5 am to get to an auction or boot sale in atrocious weather doesn't feature in my life.

Definitely! I have no problem with the excess. ;D

It would be entirely different though if they belonged to someone else. :-X

A new addition brings a new colour variation and a whopper too  :o

A real surprise finding this early shape so big, 23cm tall and 26 wide. Some of the later fish vases are just over 30 by 30, considerably bigger and a magnitude heavier again.
