    I remember that. It was at Bettina Atlam's shop. I did'nt buy it since it was a bit large and a bit pricey for me at that time.

    McIntyre, McIntyre! Sorry fo mis-spelling your name. I never did hear a price on the model, but I DO remember it was big, fragile, and heavy! And with the glass dome, risky to ship. T'would have been nice to own, however!
