During the month of March 2015 I came across an ARABELLA one piece pink coloured figural flower frog for sale.
It was listed on eBay under an obscure title and it is now in my collection.
The search is now on to find the bowl to complete the set.
In May 2015 I decided to stop and check out an antique shop which I had passed may times before.
I asked the owner does he have any glass float bowl sets for sale he said no.
He did mention that they had been readily available years ago but no longer.
Whilst in the shop I noticed a bowl in a display cabinet full of costume jewellery.
On closer inspection I realised it was the exact bowl that I wanted to complete this set.
I asked the store owner was he interested in selling this bowl and to my surprise he said yes.
On close inspection I found the bowl to be in perfect condition.
I asked for his sell price he came straight back to me and asked me to make him an offer.
Following my realistic offer he said that is a fair price and he gave me a unexpected fantastic discount.
It just goes to show you never know what is waiting to be discovered.
