I would have loved to see the reaction when this went to auction.

I've got one but I can't identify it, it has squiggly writing on the bottom!

I hope the buyer was sure that it wasn't a Gerald Ratner product.

My good lady was looking at the junk around the house with a wistful look in her eye.
Unfortunately it is junk.Tasteful junk I might add, just in case she sees this post.LOL

Just watched the auction on TV. Is it only cynical old me who thinks that the tatty auction room and the astronomical price could be some wag taking the rip? The vase also looked like a piece of fairground tat from a Bangkok house of loose women and earthly delights .......but ceramics designed by artists who bat for the other side, were never my forte.

Just for the record, I thought it was absolutely delightful, and I would love to own it (I'd love to be able to afford just the insurance on it, but that's another story!).
