18" and 24" Round Trays in "Swirl"
The tray that we have does not exactly match any of these sizes!!! - ours is 443mm in diameter (approx 17.5 inches)
However, the web site mentions that 'skilled craftsmen work to a standard of excellence which dictates that each item be hand made' and 'no two pieces will be exactly alike, so variations characteristic of handcrafting may be apparent' so this could explain the difference
Markings - each item must be signed with the Don Sheil trademark signature - our tray is marked "Don Sheil 1975"
Pattern - "Swirl"
Pricing - an 18 inch Round Tray with a Suede Base (which ours has) is listed at $335.00
Photos - click here for a larger photo of our tray, which includes a shot of the suede base
Reply to an enquiry I sent to the Don Sheil Gallery - "Your tray is a Round 18" Tray in Swirl with suede base which we currently sell for $335 inc GST - Don Sheil does not have a round tray in Stalagmite as the pattern does not lend itself well to flat round shapes"
Large Jug (180mm) and Small Salad Bowl in "Stalagmite"
There is no mention of this type of item on the Official Site (discontinued?)
The height is 185mm
Markings - each item must be signed with the Don Sheil trademark signature - our carafe is marked "Don Sheil 1975"
Pattern - "Stalagmite"
Pricing - $440.00 - see note below
Photos - click here for a larger photo of our carafe
Reply to an enquiry I sent to the Don Sheil Gallery - "Your carafe is in Stalagmite pattern - the pattern is named after the rock formations found in caves - Don Sheil no longer makes the carafe - they were difficult to make and became too expensive as a result - they have not been made for many years - therefore I am not able to put a value on it for you - we do sell a Large Jug in the range at $440 inc GST which could be considered comparable for valuing purposes"
Goblet in "Stalagmite"
As can be seen from the top photo, we have six of these items
Three of these are around 160mm in height, with the others being 165mm - again, this slight difference could be due to the 'variations characteristic of handcrafting'
Markings - each item must be signed with the Don Sheil trademark signature - our goblets are marked "Don Sheil 1976"
Pattern - "Stalagmite"
Pricing - a 165mm Standard Goblet is listed at $145.00 - this would mean a replacement cost of 6 x $145.00 = $870.00
