    It's an interesting vase but I guess it's all in the name. The article is a bit confusing in how it refers to the seller's name but that's a minor point. Now I have to go look at signatures to be sure I'd never overlook one (I should be so lucky:rolleyes:)

    Yes, I thought my little local newspaper was the only one to screw up picture captions this much. They have the seller down as the potter's widow.

    I'm pleased to say that I recognised it as Hans Coper at first glance. Now all I have to do is find one in real life !

    They DID mess up the caption under the image, but after reading the article through, the vase is waaay less ugly that I first thought!!!:smuggrin::smuggrin::smuggrin::smuggrin:

    Incredible. Love it when people come onto valuation shows thinking nobody could possibly like the item. Then they walk away with hundreds. :greedy:

    In this case hundreds of thousands

    See, I would have totally bought that vase ! Not for 100s of 1000s,of course,but I like modern and I like pottery so Id have dropped a fiver on it in the thrift. :)

    I still think it's ugly, but for that kind of payout it's an ugly I could live with for a while.:wideyed::wideyed::wideyed:
