    Another post for Andy Jelcic.

    Ok, I'll confess everything, but don't show and don't tell. There was a pair of red aventurine Rindskopf vases on eBay, you might have seen them. One had a battered collar, the other one had none. I skipped the first, but the other did not sell, it was not expensive, so I took the risk and bought it. I presumed that it might take months until I find an appropriate collar, but it happened so that in the first week a simple, transparent glass vase cropped up with a perfectly dimensioned collar in good condition, British like the missing one, and from the appropriate period. I was the only bidder and after it arrived I - well - cooked that vase. The collar did come off, so I could proceed to phase II.
    It included a visit to a jeweller's shop, where the collar was cleaned and a tiny dent repaired. On the other side of the same street is a dentist technician, who was kind enough to properly attach the collar with plaster of Paris. I thanked her with a box of sweets and now I have a perfect red aventurine. Happy Easter to everybody!

      It really came out perfect. Usually these things don't fit exactly and look out of place, but this one looks like it was always there.

      Great story and so lucky to find a color that was the exact size and period for this vase. Usually, "marriages" exhibit differences but these two are definitely soul mates.
