no, def no tongue in cheek - i don't have a clue about glass stuff, so it was a genuine question. I contacted the auction house about the attribution in the catalogue and they responded by saying that the online catalogue was for a sale that had already passed. So, that means that some poor person has bought what they think is Whitefriars.

http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/stride-and-son/catalogue-id-2895802/lot-20162893?searchitem=true

I placed a very hopeful bid of £250 on this picture (which had no reserve). I knew it had been incorrectly catalogued and was actually signed "K. Schwitters" (Kurt Schwitters) so wasn't at all disappointed that i didn't bid more when it sold for £28K . Obviously the bidders were more on the ball than this auction house. Makes you wonder what other gems go under the radar at provincial auction houses. But i did wonder how even a small auction house could make SUCH a blunder on a well known name like Schwitters. If i were the vendor, how pissed off would i be when i found out the reason why it had sold for thousands, but could've sold for more if it had been catalogued correctly?

Auction houses are nuts.

We currently have one if those glass vases in the shop. Manager put £20 on it several months ago. Still unsold. Dying to put a half price sticker on it.

I have one. Frantisek Vizner for Hermanova Hut pattern 20082. Maze design. Cost £3 from a charity shop. Theys big and chunky things. I like it but I doubt I would be tempted to part with more than a tenner for one.
