Something new is that all the solids now feature a small magnetic closure instead of the clasp we are all familiar with. This I liked, it may help keep the perfume fresher and prevent shrinkage and discoloration somewhat.
The Taj Mahal was the first piece to catch my eye, this solid is absolutely fabulous. It is big and bold.
The stagecoach, trolley and Chinese junk are nice solids although not my type.
The monkey is also a larger solid and yes, it moves, the monkey can actually be slid off the branch and be worn with a cord or chain around your neck. I would have liked to have had the monkey enameled in brown for some contrast to the gold branch.
The peacock is very nice and colorful, loved the multicolored stones on the tail.
Rollercoster is nice, although the scale of the solid is strange to me.
Ventian fan is wonderful done in emamel and stones so very pretty, missing is the metal tassel from the above photos.
Marlin, I just didn't like this solid. I felt it could have been so much better with more detail such as scales or more stones on the body.
From these solids I will get the fan and peacock. I would also get the Taj Mahal but at $400 only if it was a numbered piece with tag or card and limited production.
Strongwater solid all very nice, will get them all ! The sunflower is my favorite also the bird in teh nest is very sweet. Saks is also getting a beautiful flower on a silk cord to wear as a necklace, this one is so pretty!!!
Nordstroms two solids are wonderful a flower looked like a dogwood flower done in white enamel and the other cherubs under a tressis, getting both!
General distrubtion solids are plain, nothing really jumped out at me. I am wondering why they chose to do another dragonfly solid, also there are two birds in a nest this year??? And the red, white and blue bow looks reminiscent of the 1989 beautiful bow and the cameo is a re-issue of the cameo collectors compact with a blue background instead of amber. I wish the designers could have come up with a new design.
Only slides were shown of the general distribution and Nordstroms, we have no photos of them, also nothing mentioned about Harrods.

I also have a pic of the drawing of the flower solid that Estee is supposed to release with their new fragrance in the fall. It is rough. Maybe Jack can use his computer magic and clean it up

The pictures are marvelous. My favourites are the peacock,marlin and taj mahal, the monkey looks a little unproportional and my opinion is too that he needs a little colour. I think the best ones are the strongwater I'm speakless !!! and the little flower Ron send to us.
Help !!!!!!!!!!! I don't think one bank is enough .

Thanks for your time and effort to get these on the board so quickly. It's the next best thing to being at the conference! very exciting! definately spoilt for choice I love the Taj Mahal and the Junk.
Hey Carole, do the pre-orders and gift go for international customers?

Not sure if Jay Strongwater will be doing more signings, I do know that he will be at the compact collectors convention in Vegas next month.
I am working on Jack to go to this one too!!!
