Your picture will only appear if Birdsall / dayoil don’t want
To purchase your lamp, pit check or badges, if you don’t
Want to sell the item to them they will discredit you by saying
that the lamp is fake, not worth having.

Proof of the pudding is in the eating. Lamps/ Checks / badges / Uncle Tom Cobbly and all, We all never really own anything, we are just custodians of them in our life, cos someone else will have them when we are gone or sooner. People will sell where they wish and buy what they wish - no reference to you or anyone else, good luck to them all, and none to you Blue.
