After you had finished being sick I presume?  

Why on earth would someone want to put those two colours together...???

Or is it just me?:roll:
Thank you very much!

OMG!!!!! :shock:
That's just too weird! Those two bits of glass sure don't belong together!
It's totally wrong!  :lol:
And someone has bid on it.   :roll:
Presumably, this odd top & bottom have had their broken-off parts ground down & then glued together to unleash this travesty?!

More glass than class!

I think the listing says there is a silver collar round the part where they join.

I mean, we aren't missing something really good and rare here are we??
Thank you very much!

I didn't even notice the bit about the silver collar! :lol:
Too busy being stunned by the nerve of mating two such different species! :lol:
It really is a shocker!
Actually the silver collar reminds me of the old spooky story about a girl who always wore a ribbon tied around her neck....& after being asked time & again to remove it by her boyfriend, & refusing, finally the ribbon comes off & then off with her head! :shock:
Surely the same thing would happen to this mish-mash of an item! :lol:

You're right Dex!  Isn't it strange how you remember what you THOUGHT you saw, not what you actually did?
Thank you very much!
