an inexpensive Glass Eye studios weight fell and hit my Daniel Salazar golden rose weight.

You have my deepest sympathy!  :(

I had viewed a load of lovely paperweights at auction recently, and one box had around 20 Streathearn and Perthshire millefioris plus some signed weights. Lovely. So when I got to the auction to bid, I found that the porter had accidentally dropped the entire box.  About three quarters had deep dings and bullseyes.


That really hurts!!! What'd the guy expect them to do, bounce?

I had said when I went to view that there were too many weights in each box, and the porter at the counter (not the one who dropped them!) had said that he would try to sort them into bigger boxes.  But he obviously didn't have time or boxes available as they were all jumbled up in the same boxes at the auction proper.  Even the dropped box went for nearly £200... too rich for me.
Thank you very much!

You should have taken matters into your own hands.  :wink: The entire episode just boggles the mind. So sad. Just imagining it hurts.
