Oh dear, I had really hoped there was only the one. :'(
I've been out to collect my prescription today. ::)
How are you coping, these days?

I do really like the green-topaz combination. I'm the very proud owner of a Ladislaw Oliva one.
Cheers, Sue (M)

 ;D I had a toy rabbit. He was everything to me.

 Cats for me. ;D And glass, and other forms of art.

Cats arrived eventually. As soon as I was able to operate the machinations required to achieve it. ;D

Thank you ladies...that did make me giggle. ;D ;D ;D Thankfully I just missed out on the green & brown tweed, sadly not the crimplene & nylon psychedelic numbers though.

I think you may be right about Beranek, there are definitely similarities, especially with the thick rounded rims and narrow openings. Couldnít resist posting this one I sold on in the green & brown combo Sue...not too upsetting I hope.
Then thereís the mystery one with the corkscrew twist, another one I wish that I hadnít sold on...Yes I do manage to part with the odd one occasionally and then regret it! :-\

I've got a propellor vase which would go very nicely with your first, vase Penny, and I'm absolutely clueless about your multicoloured spirally sort of twisty thing - the pattern looks like the inside of a massive multicoloured old marble.

Bri-nylon floaty flammable stuff over sticky flammable brushed nylon nighties... Penny, you've brought back something I'd hoped I'd forgotten. ;D
And that foam backed stiff crimplene stuff...

Ladies ... please be careful of the Board's "wibble-ometer". And please take care to not turn the thrread into a multi-ID extravaganza.  ;D

Thanks, m.  :) It is a bit of a beauty. It has pride of place on the mantlepiece.
We have realised and stopped, Kev. Sorry for the clutter. :-[
Penny, would you like to post your spiral beast in another thread so we can see if we can find out what it is? Or would that just make you more miserable about having parted with it? ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)
