That is the same conclusion I have come to - but I really was hoping to get that weight.

Alan- do you have a print out of the July 2013 listing from last summer and was it the same seller as now?
Glass Paperweights / Re: When is a crown a crown?

Thank you both, you're on the same page as I am.

I wouldn't even have asked, except that I saw "definitions" that defined the center single murine as part of a "crown".

Though, I must say, I wouldn't have described the spiral egg that Alan showed as a crown.

The great advantage over using Ebay is the fees, Etsy is significantly cheaper to sell on at 3.5% compared to Ebay's 11% in glass and 15% in antiques. I imagine their sales volumes are lower but at least you stand a chance of making a reasonable profit on what you do actually sell.

As a newbie there I have noticed it is not as intuitive to use as Ebay but so far so good...

Ebay have become very greedy in recent years with fees going up and up. The imposition of a 10% fee on the cost of postage is absurd, 70% of my sales were to Europe and America and that postage fee was a killer.

Reminds me a lot of these S.V.C.C. pieces:

I am far from certain all labeled S.V.C.C. pieces were designed by Flavio Poli, though (but who knows -- would be nice if >> my labeled UFO bowl was  ;D )

Glass / Wine glasses etched grasses?
« Last post by bat20 on Today at 04:46:18 PM »
Hi all,try saying that title quickly after a couple ;),i've still got a naff camera but these two glasses have polished pontils and a lovely ring with etched grass species or bamboo?,giving them a sort of oriental feel,my gut feeling is they are first quarter of the 20th century,anyone got any thoughts on these two,many thanks.

"A couple of items have sold already which was a nice surprise"

Have never really considered  Etsy, may have to investigate!
