Did this sell below it's value.......?
« on: November 10, 2014, 04:57:21 PM »
Hi,
 Am I right in saying that this is an unusual colour..? 

It was only on Ebay for a few minutes  :)

Value is most elusive. It is what one party is willing to pay at a given moment. No guarantee that a second item will fetch the same. If you worry about these things, relax and pour yourself a stiff drink in a nice glass. You cannot alter it anyways.

It's not a Mdina "Onion" or Minaret as it is also sometines called.
That was a late (perhaps '80s) small Fish vase, with a white splodgy interior and teal blue "wings" and neck. The appear with a pink splodgy interior too.
This is an "Onion" vase.

After Said took over?  I think.
There seems to be a time when good quality and interesting complicated, stuff was still being made, while Boffo and Dobson were still there, but a bit after that, it all seems to be smallish splodgy stuff, with a lot of white and pink around. These Fish belong to this later small splodgy things category, but are possibly the most complicated things done then.
I'm not really interested in this sort of time period, I'm afraid.
Cheers, Sue (M)
