When I told my fellow Waterford lover about the Waterford Bride and Groom piece which I had found on shopgoodwill.com., he wanted to see it. I wrapped it carefully in towels and took it to show him. I held it up to the sunlight to view the hallmark. I said, "Even if it's a fake, it's beautiful and worth the $6.99 I paid for it." He said, "That piece would cost at least $300.00!" I said, "I looked on eBay and it was selling for $139.00." "WHY would someone donate Waterford?", he asked.
I said, "They probably have STEUBEN!"
I have always wanted a piece of Steuben and I learned that the company folded and now I'll probably never have a piece.
