Hi,
The green polar bear above is currently listed on eBay and creating a stir down under. Auction ends Sunday 14th. I am quite surprised at the amount of interest itís receiving.
Thanks Mike

Hi Mike
I know!
I run a facebook page for art deco pressed glass collectors and put the link to your auction on my page.I have a lot of Australians on my page.
I can imagine the amount of Australians that may have messaged you as they jump straight on anything good over here
There is a lovely lady her in UK that has been after one of these for so long I hope she wins it as she deserves to.

Funnily enough I was just sending a counter offer to a lady who was the first to make an offer and then all hell broke loose, I started receiving offers from every where, several from down under and then bidding comenced and all offers ended. For the last 18 months I've been listing
Victorian glass which doesn't get the same interest as this so I was a bit taken aback.
My father just found another 5 boxes of glass  in his loft that he'd completely forgot about so I will be busy listing them for while.
I think my folks may have been collecting the wrong type of glass for the last forty years😩

Sounds like they had excellent taste.
I am a huge collector of deco centrepieces like this but my preferred colours are amber and pink and the odd opalescent.
Australians are quite fanatical about uranium glass we sell lots of uranium on etsy but our biggest clients are mainly Americans and Canadians now.
I have a feeling your set will attract snipe bidding...do you use GSP at all when sending overseas?
