Beam me up............................

How I wish I could find a way to despatch these wonderful 19th century glass domes and bases in the post.

I see them all the time and they are simply wonderful to display collections of old treasures.

At the moment mine holds 18th century frothy parchment pages books and manuscripts tied with ribbons. At Christmas it was filled with old mercury glass globes and holly and was a stunning piece.

But, sadly the glass is always wafer thin and they would not survive the rough handling of the postal service.

Why hasn`t someone designed a space age teleport service already!!! I could just click my fingers and voila!
A demain mes belles
