Sorry Leslie, you lost me there, "Pari...."?
Oh, but now that I see AJT's post as well, I've finally got it. Actually, ixion @#20 just about nailed it. Perhaps I didn't understand the hints. Duh!
Thank you all.
So it's one of those tri-part clues :
Clay / instrument / from Paris (not half)
Those are rather rare. Are they in the rule book?
