Lilac Whitefriars 9683 Nailhead

(1/3) > >>

josordoni:
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!

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. :)

josordoni:
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.

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  :'( :'(
