Picture was just by my phone Sue as half decent camera is currently in Edinburgh. You're welcome to visit at some point to have a proper look at the bottle and one or two other bits that have found a home here since your last visit. Funnily enough, something else that is here is the sculpture that was used to promote the City of Culture bid. Stuff and things - stuff and things :D

It's not the quality of the image, it's the size it goes that makes it hard to decide completely.
I'm no handwriting expert, and don't pay as much attention to miniscule details of it as others do.

I never know when I'm going to be over your way.  ::)
It sort of depends on Michael not having something better to do than take me out, and the weather being horrible, and he can normally find things to do even if it's pouring.
I'll get in touch first if I do find out, I can bring some bits with writing on, to compare. :) :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

I really do need to take my barnet to Wendy to fix a bit, some time soon. I'm plucking up the courage.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Nice piece, Boffo I think.

I thought it would be of interest to show these bottles that are owned by a family member of Vicente Boffo.....

Cheers,

Patrick.

ps, The owner is happy I am showing these.

Fantastic iridescence on those two Patrick, many Tricorn bottles only have a minimal sort of swirl.

A photo of three more.
