Not totally sure but if it is wrong it is a lot better than the usual fakes. there was definite genuine piece in ANS 2 Morton and Eden Autumn 2006. catalogue is available on line www.mortonandeden.com. So you could compare with the illustration. I know I gave the diameter but I can't remember whether I gave the weight.

This is not "II" of course but "I".

Very weirdly and very fakely executed "I", I must add.

I was just about to comment about that also.  How can a faker be so careful and precise but make this mistake.  I know I don't have the only copy of Werlich.

Thanks all


It was like a shot in the water. I'm glad I didn't spend a penny on it  before asking experts .. Well, let's keep looking.

Best Regards

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
