Ha ha ha, well what goes around, comes around. Looks like a dealer bought it and now on eBay for a cool £3000.....

One of the things I know puts off a collector or buyer is items that shift too quickly after sale and appear again and again. Problem with the antiques world, most of the dealers are buying off each other and trying to put their mark up on.... in 12 months we will see it back at auction where they are trying to get their money back, mind you if you are trying to sell a quality item perhaps eBay is the wrong place

Excellent example of the old sales technique: If it doesn't sell, boost the price and embellish the description.

Or as the saying attributed to P. T. Barnum goes, "There is a sucker born every minute."
