EuroSchirm birdiepal Outdoor Umbrella black 2017
EuroSchirm birdiepal Outdoor Umbrella black 2017
Offered by Stock-Fachmann
Price: £52.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly indestructible, 14 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have seen the video of someone using this umbrella under a waterfall than I can safely say that it is genuine. The EuroSchirm stands up to just about anything. On the days when you wouldn't normally take an umbrella out in high winds or gales, this one just shruggs it off. I wish I was on commission, 3 more people have order one since seeing mine, can't say fairer than that. As for the compass in the handle......it's good to know I will not get lost in my supermarket car park!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Queen Victoria WOULD be amused., 14 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Than you. The crown arrived well ahead of time. Perfectly packaged with foam in a box. It even came with a velvet bag and 4 silver hair grips to keep it on the head. If you want it to be an exact copy of Queen Victoria's small diamond crown, then the top cross pattee easily unscrews and can be shortened allowing the cross to sit snugly on the monde, with a little strong glue, so it is closer to the original. With 882 diamonds it is the best copy I have so far found and I still don't know how our good friends in China do it for such a reasonable price. Truly delighted better than I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just gets better the more you listen to this album, 7 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It just gets better the more you listen to this album. I was lucky enough to see the second night of Death Takes a Holiday at The Charing Cross Theatre in London recently and even luckier to have been there on the night when the great Maury Yeston did a question and answer session after curtain down, an interview followed by questions, afterwards he talked with everyone and like a mad fan boy he allowed me to have a selfie with him, couldn't help myself. I also directed TITANIC some years ago, one of the first productions in this country so I know his work well. Remember Maury also has the musical NINE and GRAND HOTEL in his cannon. Yes the film Meet Joe Black is the same story and before you think the musical is a rip off it started life as a 1928 stage play by Alberto Casella and was filmed in 1934 with Fredric March.
The Charing Cross production is simply (but brilliantly) staged and if you are expecting the soaring grandeur of TITANIC then do not be disappointed, this is more of a chamber piece. A show to make you think and discuss afterwards, not some throw away `Jukebox` musical. Mr Yeston give us another intelligent show with a wonderful score. Thank you Mr Maury Yeston.

Arrived ahead of time. Good weight but not too heavy. Much better than I expected. Nearest copy to the Girls Of Great Britain Tiara that I have found. Well done. To be used for a stage production but lovely for any bride.

5.0 out of 5 stars paperback verses hardback, 28 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the opening double page with its close up of the front of St Edwards Crown (Hardback Edition) to the final inventory of all the riches in the collection, this is the definitive collection of photographs. The camera takes us closer to the crowns and orbs than we could ever hope for in real life. In fact if you were ever this close you would probably be arrested and locked up in the Tower permanently. Well there are three versions of this book. Firstly the most expensive which features the hardback version with a Victorian pull out frieze. The main two are the stand alone hardback version verses the paperback edition. Be aware they are very different. I ordered the paperback and quickly cancelled it when I realized how much better the hardback version was.
The paperback has only 179 pages as opposed to the 204 pages in the hardback. The paperback has 189 illustrations, 172 in colour, whilst hardback offers 296 illustrations, 277 of which are in colour. Sizing is different too. The hardback is so much larger at 32.5cm x 27.7cm, poor old paperback is only 27.2cm x 22.8cm.
Of course the price reflects the sizing and paperback verses hardback, but well worth getting the better version, after all the Crown Jewels are not about to change. The writing of history and background is most interesting and in future I shall be able to spot the fakes with paste jewels, oh yes there are quite a few, all above board. To sum up, its worth the more expensive price for the amazing new photographs in the highest, clearest detail. Well done Anna Keay and her team, I doubt this book will ever be bettered.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE UK SEES THE DVD AT LAST - WELCOME BACK HOME, 12 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works, It works. Yes I saw the London production but most of you buying the DVD or Blu ray will not have. So lets stop comparing the two productions. It is a joy to see how a good director and designer can transform a show, worth the money for that alone. Full HD 5.1 surround sound, although my copy did cut out several times, and a running time of 2 hours. The extra is a 14 minute documentary behind the scenes, although that is not in full surround sound and judging by the change in quality is not in full HD. Strange we only have applause on the soundtrack 3 times (after 2 songs and on the finale). This happened in `CATS` DVD and takes away some of the `being their live` experience.
It is beautifully and lovingly filmed, although we do suddenly have a new set on stage without the change taking place live. The cast and company never stop, indeed at the end I was amazed at the number taking bows, there seemed to be twice as many in the production. Costume, make up and wigs are wonderful and they even kept in the radio microphones during close ups.
Some have said that it is not the same as being in the theatre, well of course it`s not. But at only £17.00 for the disc it is a lot cheaper than a flight to Australia.
So, welcome back home LOVE NEVER DIES, we missed you.
