Thanks for being patient with me, I'm now fully back to strength you'll be glad to hear, and I hope you are doing well too. And no, I won't be needing the flu jab now, of course, but thanks for the warning.
As regards ***** ***** I'll have to assume it was credited to my account as that's what my administrator confirmed in an email to me:
"The customer contacted Customer Support and processed a manual payment for a bonus..."
However, it won't (and will never) show up as a line item, apparently, so I'll just have to assume it's there and if it's debited from your account then I'm sure that's the case. I've no idea what the difficulty is in making it show in my account, but there's probably a very reasonable explanation, or at least I hope there is.
Anyway, thank you again and I'll let you know how the bottle of wine celebration goes!
Meanwhile, I notice there are still a couple of outstanding items from the batch you sent recently, so here's an answer on one of them at least.
The green ribbed vase.
There's been some artistic thought and workmanship put into this vase. Without a label or a signature on the bottom, though, it's going to be impossible to know who it was who was responsible for that for sure, but this hand-blown and 'optic' look (those convex hoops) looks like it's Blenko "Handcraft" or similar, certainly 1950s/1960s when this look was trendy. Very similar to those by Hank Adams or Joel Myers when designing for Blenko.
The color isn't quite strong enough though, so we could possibly be back to Bohemian Uranium/Vaseline glass again.
Whatever it is, the optic effects will appeal to someone in eBay land who will probably pay $20 - $35 for it.
So that's $70 retail/replacement/insurance value.
Hope this helps!
