A friend in Holland alerted me to a new book called Compleet Copier that was released last month in the Netherlands. It is a publication of the Nationaal Glasmuseum. So last week I put out a message on Nationaal Glasmuseum Facebook page with the question: I know there is an English version of the Compleet Copier. Can anyone detail where I can get a copy. I am in Australia!
They replied and I found out how to order an English version of the book from the Netherlands. I had to do it all in Dutch as there was no English version and I felt rather proud of myself being able to get a copy of it for € 50,99 plus the € 19,80 postage.

So now I am waiting for the Compleet Copier.

But the strange thing happened that afternoon. I went out that morning with visions of the book on my mind. I went to half a dozen shops and bought nothing. But then I went into a shop of a friend and I saw a little Copier vase. The sticker on it said $35. Not cheap, cheap, but I have not seen one of them here before.

It's catalogue number is VS 185.

I have been wanting a Sonoor piece for a long time and this was the day!
Just under 9cm but a beautiful little perfect vase with twelve tin craquelure stripes. It's one of the white ones. I think this one only came in white. The iridescence is so discreet. It looks a little like the A.D. Copier Liberation vase, the 'Oranje Appel'.

Is it not strange the coincidence?
A little bit of 'wish fulfillment'.

I'm looking forward to getting the book!

    Big vases are beautiful. Small vases are beautiful and touching.

    Life has these little "co-incidences". I once did not belive in one ... to my regret. I said one morning that today I will get a Margret Preston . I saw a painting (not a print) in a Junk shop with a M R M signature ( Her maiden name ) it was of a boring vase of flowers . I laughed at my self and did not buy it (it was only $45) rk . a few weeks later I saw it at a National gallery exhibition... some one had made may $100o 's ..
    I can still laugh about it!

    I love those little sixth sense days, when you just feel something coming toward you. (hopefully not a bus)

    Ozmarty, your story is killing me. OUCH!

    Oh wow! what a find, so pretty, so elegant. I must check this maker out, I've not seen one before. Many thanks for pointing the way.

    Ozmarty - great story, but imagine what the junk shop owner felt!
