Last May, I posted about my Bombay Sapphire Martini glass collection.
All these collector glasses are released in the Christmas gift box, one glass with a bottle of Bombay Sapphire Gin. I'm not a gin martini drinker, I prefer vodka, so I never buy the gift box. I usually pick them up on eBay.
The first in the series, 1994, was by Ulla Darni, famous for her stained glass creations. To find this glass is near impossible, and when I have seen it on eBay, it usually goes for anywhere between $80-$125, with a bidding war at the end of the listing.
So I just sit back.
Saturday afternoon, I did an eBay search for Bombay Sapphire glasses, but the only thing that came up were ones I already had. Then I ran a search for Ulla Darni. This glass came up. No mention of Bombay Sapphire.
No bids. Starting price was $24.99.
I bid $25.00 and hoped the fact the listing didn't have Bombay Sapphire in it would keep it hidden from other collectors.
