Lilac Whitefriars 9683 Nailhead
« on: February 22, 2007, 05:56:41 PM »
I have just picked up a little 9683 Nailhead in Lilac, working from Emmi's colour lists, I make it that this was only available in 1974?

Does that make it harder to find?  It is is a lovely delicate colour, I haven't seen any before.

I can't find any on ebay (I can go back 2 months and nothing in that colour), so don't know if it is likely to make more or about the same as the more usual tangerine and pewter?

thanks!

Thank you very much!

Lynne

Well done Lynne - if it IS lilac you did good - very rare and highly sought after.  What size is your nailhead as well because if it's one of the larger ones it's a double whammy!

Hi Lynne,
Take a look at http://www.whitefriarsorg.org/memb1/a6-auctions/a6-06-04/page0007.html
It shows one which sold for £100 on a BIN which is a good bit more than some of the other colours!
Well done, John. :)

Thanks both - it's in a box of a LOT of glass I bought on Wednesday... I'll hoik it out and get a picture so we can double check the colour.  Size is definitely the little one.

Thank you very much!

Here she is:

vase:

rim:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-5292

base:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-5291

I was very pleased with the pics - I used DenCill's tip of using a piece of black card to one side to create some internal reflections. Worked well I think.

Shame though, as I was cleaning the vase for photos I found some little nibbles to the inner edge of the rim, I thought I had checked it carefully, but obviously not... shame....there goes the pricing  :'( :'(
Thank you very much!

Those pesky magically-appearing chips and cracks have been at it again, then. Always happens to me.  >:(

Maybe a little information there, no conclusions though.  :)

Thanks Max, they might be burst bubbles, I'll have a look closely through the glass in the daylight tomorrow.  Though I think these are just wear and tear nicks - wearing rings whilst washing up probably causes quite a few little nicks too.

Thank you very much!

Lynne -

I know nothing about your vase but I wanted to tell you that I think your photos came out fabulous  ;D

It's beautiful Lynne, with the more subtle colour. Lovely pictures too!
I should think the scarcity will go some way towards the loss due to damage, if that's what it is. We had to throw away an otherwise beautiful piece of crystal from a mixed lot yesterday, because someone had washed it up while wearing a diamond ring >:(
Good Luck! John.
