I don't think I've ever seen a post on the top of an Andromeda figurine. Very strange.

I have this family piece a wedding gift to my parents in 1951 which I believe is by Chance ...this pickle jar was always known in our house as the 'gardening jar' my father saved money in it every week until  early spring came and the Dobbie's seed catalogue would arrive and the great debate began on what veg we would plant that year.

Glass Events / UK - National Glass Fair - Sunday 6th May**
« Last post by Oxbridge Fairs on Yesterday at 10:09:59 PM »
Specialist Glass Fairs' flagship event, the National Glass Fair, will take place on Sunday 6th May at the National Motorcycle Museum, West Midlands B92 0EJ.
This twice-yearly fair is eagerly awaited by the glass-collecting fraternity because of the wide variety and quality of the glass offered for sale.
A specialist event like this is a great opportunity for enthusiasts to meet other like-minded individuals and to browse the spectacular array of exciting pieces on sale, plus there is always the possibility of finding a bargain - or haggling your way to one!
Exhibitors are drawn from across the UK and Europe always bring their very best stock to this event, so it really is a fascinating experience to visit one of these fairs and, if it is your first time, we can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Contemporary studio glass is a big collecting area and is well represented at the fair by a number of glass artists using various techniques such as graal, cameo engraving and blown work , and there will be some new faces and old friends at this event. 
If you are more interested in antique and collectable glass, such as Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau or Art Deco, then our many specialist dealers will be sure to have something to inspire you. Alternatively, collectors of twentieth century glass, paperweights and jewellery will be spoilt for choice.
As usual there will be an exhibition in Hall 1, this time of Chance handkerchief  vases.
Come along and see for yourself; you'll have a great day out!
Open from 10.30am until 4.00pm, admission is 5. Refreshments are available and there is free parking.

I'm familiar with the "easily confused" bit.   :-[
But my psychiatrist told me; "You are not paranoid. They ARE out to get you." ;D

Thanks Sue  :)  I'm not really paranoid, but when you belong to several different message boards on quite different subjects it can be tricky remembering the one's 'rules' from the other and it's easy to trip up!  Maybe I should rather describe myself as easily confused  ;)

The techie help is really good, thanks, and I completely understand the need for 'rules' for the sensible reasons you have described!  It's a great forum, and I've already learned a lot from its very friendly members  :)
