Title: MERMAID SET
Post by: Pinky on October 30, 2009, 12:38:36 PM
Sorry I've not been around for a while - I've been ill. What been helping my recdovery is glass and pottery hunting. On my travels I stumbled across a mermaid dressing table set. The candlesticks are mermaid ladies as are the finials on the bboxes. The tray itself is engraved with mermaids. All look as if they'd glow under ultraviolet. I've tried posting a picture but am having trouble despite compressing the image to an acceptable size. Can you please help? Pinky

You're wonderful you are. It's EXACTLY the set in uranium green. Theres 2 mermaid candlesticks, 1 large trinket box, 2 smaller trinket boxes a ring tree and the tray. Thank you so much for your help. I had a really beastly bout of manic depression but I'm coming out of it now - my hands are still too shaky :rn:

No lustrous. Unfortunately theres nips and chips in bits. I'm wondering whether to have the set restored.

Depends where they are, but probably not worth it.

 :hj: Pinky, I'm so sorry to hear that you have been unwell. Am very glad to hear that things are settling down (love the therapy method  ;) ) and happy to have you back here.

And I think you've been very successful in your shopping!
