I have a wonderful collection, but have always wanted a cup and saucer with the "Black" logo on the bottom. The black logo means it is one of the first piece's ever made. I have many pieces with the green logo or brown, but the black is hard to find. And when you do find one, they are priced at $150 - $200.
I watched it every half hour until it got to the final 15 minutes, then I stayed glued to my screen. I looked at lots of sites, Antique Quilts, Featherweights and China Teapots... but kept going back to my bid. Nobody had bid anything on it. The final 8 minutes someone bid it up to $20. I waited but had my bid ready to go - the last 30 seconds I put in the bid for $24.45 and WON.
The "Black" Logo
I have another cup and saucer set (green logo) and am tempted to make a cup of tea using it. Then sit on my couch wrapped in a quilt and enjoy going through my Quilt Sampler Magazines. That is one of my favorite things to do, now to add the Belleek and it would be heavenly.
