No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

I think this is the 'white' opalescent version, but as it appears to be intact, unlike the £750 one with broken feet, it could be worth considerably more!   :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

However, I'm not 100% sure it's exactly the same style.  Is there any makers mark anywhere?  

Anyway, lucky you, Pamela!   :D

Hello and thankyou to you all - It looks like good news. I should let you all know. He's the Rose!

It is pretty obvious when I now look at him with educated eyes, (thanks to you), that he has a beautiful rose pink content throughout.

I've taken a deep breath and will obtain further verification before I do cartwheels!

Pamela.

There is the moulded registration number in his basket which indicates Burtles & Tate.

This is one I would NOT be putting on ebay, if it were me   :lol:
