British & Irish Glass / Re: lid and bowl a marriage?

lol if I knew anyone on here was bidding I could have said it was the marriage bowl, ive seen this bowl several times now over the years and have had arguments with its previous owners on ebay about it being a mismatch , I did see it appear yet again on ebay but choose just to ignore it and never looked at the listing again , I would have thought it was obvious just by the pictures on ebay that the lid didn't fit and im sure it mentioned in the listing it was very slack , oh well at least its the last we see of it on ebay I hope

Hi Frank, the back of the bowl is matte/frosted and the front is smooth :)
Glass Market Place / New glass shop on Etsy

I opened a shop selling glass on Etsy this morning, here is a link to the current offering:

Stock includes items from Murano (including a couple of nice Archimede Seguso bits), Mdina and Isle of Wight Studio Glass. Only a few bits of Czech glass at present. A little Bohemian and the odd Victorian item too.

Plenty more stock yet to be listed, that should keep me out of trouble for few weeks...

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

Do not EVER pay by wire transfer.  It will be almost certainly be a scam.  Almost certainly a hacked account which the "new owner" uses to post items using sold items pictures as a con, and the item will never arrive with you able to do nothing....

No idea here, more photos plus a photo of the perfumes would be good.

I believe that I have purchased the powder bowl (on eBay) in question and I can be certain that it is a marriage. The lid is to small for the bowl and though the green is the same colour the density of green between the bowl and lid is very noticeable, as shown in image 1.
I went in dispute thru eBay as the vendor, wrongly described the lid and bowl as being originally together and he did not mention small bruise to applied foot.
The outcome, within two hours of submitting my claim, I was offered my original claim of a 50% discount.
The second and third images show the difference between a post and pre war OB shape powder bowls.
The pink one has a post war Monart label OB 1X.

Hi Andy,

I would be very suspicious as the address does not exist. The postcode 13000 cannot be in Paris (a postcode in 13000 signifies an address in the Marseille region - 500 km from the capital...). To be in Paris, it would need a postcode beginning in 750 + the 2 digits of the relevant arrondissement/district.

However, there is a 'passage du champ a loup' in Paris in the 18th arrondissement (i.e. postcode 75018).

Of course, it could be a genuine error...

Hi Andy

I happened to capture some of the eBay images when this paperweight came up before....and have now found them.   It is not only the same paperweight, but the same images.....which would disconcert me.  If the seller actually has the paperweight - rather than just the images - they should be able to give you a new image with it sitting on a copy of today's paper.
