Well, these are up on eBay for one final week. If they do not sell then they go into dark storage. Anyway, thought I would put them here in case anyone is remotely interested. Asking $160 for the lot plus $15 shipping. If anyone is interested I will pay the difference and add insurance on the shipping. Items will be shipped (or not) from New Zealand.

EDIT: A BID HAS BEEN PLACED VIA EBAY - OBVIOUSLY THIS MUST TAKE PRECEDENCE, BUT AS THERE ARE 6 MORE DAYS TO RUN ON THE AUCTION ANYTHING MAY HAPPEN!

They're not really my thing but they are very, very beautiful.
