Dear Steven,

Thank you. Sometimes it is difficult to determine cost when I only just started collecting. This is one of the nicest rare triple layer on caramel that I have ever seen.
My next closest comparison was this https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/19621/lot/90/

Cheers,
YT

Dear YT,

    Lot 90 from Bonham's IS one of the finest if not the finest of that small choice group. It's price reflected that.
A SUPERB example. Was that in Bonham's in Nov.2011, from a Bloch Sale?

Dear YT and Tom B.,

Many thanks to you both for your comments, and for sharing those wonderful examples.
I am only just catching up on emails dated 13 April onwards, as I have been away and mainly offline for the last month.

Best,
Tom

Dear YT,

What a small world we collectors live in!

When you get a chance I would love to see some photos of all 4 elevation views. I am curious to see how close a match to my wood bottle it really is.

Best,
Tom

Dear Tom,

I think I owe you some photos.  Grin

I was surprised that I missed out on the glaze at some parts of the bottle until I see it on my hand. The auction photos were not reflecting these. Look at the robes on the ladies.

Cheers,
YT

Cheers,
YT

Dear YT,

I was thinking of that biscuit bottle of yours just the other day! Many thanks for the photos. It is one of the closest matches to my wood bottle of the same design. Even so, I see there are some notable differences. It is clearly not an exact copy.....see here for comparison:
http://snuffbottle.smfforfree.com/index.php/topic,980.msg7571.html#msg7571

Anyway, a very attractive bottle - one of the best of this type I have seen. If you ever decide to part with it, let me know.....   Wink

All best,
Tom

Dear YT,

    Many of the finest of that type, have clear glaze on the garments of the bisque figures,
as exemplified by your example.

Joey

Dear Tom,

Thank you, I will take note of your request.


Dear Joey,

Thought I was getting a nice almond biscuit. Looking at the glaze all over will make it inedible now  Grin

Dear YT,

Maybe it's a sugar glaze. Have you tried licking it?   Tongue

All Best,
