  1. I would take it off your hands anyday and would even double your profit ;-) , hows that for a generous offer. It is always a great feeling to identify a piece but sometimes the search is even better,...
  2. From complete noob to our resident Japanese glass expert in 1 year, very impressive. We have all learnt a bit about Japanese glass as well so thank you very much! W
  3. Hi Karen, yet another stunning (to borrow a phrase) piece of glass, I am always looking out for Japanese glass here thanks to your wonderful postings, but still haven't seen anything that could even ...
  4. Absolutely love it, looks Eastern European, Czechoslovakia, Austria or Germany is where I would start. Don't worry too much if you can't identify it, I guarantee you will stumble across the answer so...
  5. May have a military application, but not necessarily, the Nazis did like to put swastikas on everything in the 1930's!
  6. When my wife was training to be a nurse in the 1980's she was supplied with belts but not the buckles, they were allowed to wear one of their choice provided it was silver, because silver was easy to ...
  7. Looks very like a French confit pot but the glaze looks too shiny and new. Possibly a relatively new pot done in a french style. Still a very nice decoratve piece. William
  8. Wow! Another beauty.
  9. Loving the colour!
  10. Simple and beautiful, much like myself.
  11. Could first word be "British". W
  12. Sorry Karen, just yanking your chain. Love this one despite the questionable colour combination. :-) W
  13. I once coughed up something very similar.
  14. Happy Australia Day to you Karen and the rest of the clan.
  15. Love the colours. Favourite is definitely the vase, gorgeous design.
  16. Sorry Karen, will try to behave myself. Good point though, most of my glass lumps are too big for a dining table, never mind a coffee table. This one could be a coffee table, just need to buy a glass ...
  17. Hi Paris, did you find this one on Etsy, if so I may be the seller! If I had know it was you I would have sent it as a Christmas present. Happy New Year. William
  18. Everything is bigger in Australia Karen!
  19. Thanks to eye, agh, racer, vetraio, austroh, Mike, Sean and Rose for the loves.
  20. Thanks Sean, Antiquerose, Racer4four and eye4beauty for the kind comments.
  21. Happy New Year Kyratango, better late than never!
  22. Hello Ken, hope you are keeping well, thanks for the kind comment.
  23. Thanks to all for the loves, thanks also Sean and Karen for the comments. Big eared bowl is very weird, I think it might be Chinese, what do you think Karen?
  24. Thanks everyone for the loves and comments.
  25. All recycled this bunch but I have a few new ones up my sleeve to bore you with Karen. Good to hear from you again, hope all is good in Oz. W.
  26. Good to be back Sean, looking forward to seeing (and buying) lots more nice stuff!
  27. Thank you for the loves and kind comments.
  28. Hi Karen, Glad to see you are keeping at the Japglass although I don't know where you get the idea all other countries keep better records! W
  29. I think this set probably dates from the 1960's and was made in Taiwan or China not Japan. There are a lot of very similar sets out there, just google chinese chess set or something similar. Having s...
  30. I agree 100% TA but with very large pieces like this we can't buy too many on impulse.
  31. No problem, happy hunting!
  32. Hi Bigsarge, my local antiques dealer has dozens of salt and pepper shakers, do you collect any in particular that you want me to look out for? Regards William.
  33. Probably a little later maybe 1850 but very French in style. Word of warning though, these things are nearly impossible to sell at the moment. Tried to get rid of one last year, literally couldn't giv...
  34. Looks OK painted, looks fantastic in original condition, I know which I would go for!
  35. There is probably a good market now in Russia for old soviet era style products, for some reason they look back on the period with nostalgia. There has been an explosion in Vodka producers in Russia s...
  36. Here are a couple of very similar items I found on ebay, I think yours is from the same company.
  37. It certainly is "Russian" or more accurately "Soviet" in style but why would "stainless steel 8oz" be marked in English if it was produced in the USSR. They do not use the same alphabet so couldn't po...
  38. Nice vase and I love the second photograph, wonderful shadows. Unfortunately the photo is too small! Regards William.
  39. Looks like a little Japanese animé figure.
  40. Handgemalt means handmade, it is not a manufacturer.
  41. Pattern is known as the onion or bulb pattern and was originally part of the Blue Danube collection by Meissen of Germany. However it has been copied by many manufacturers since then, I would guess fr...
  42. Not sure how old it is but bottom reads Underglaze dishwasher proof so unlikely to have come over around WWII.
  43. Not hard to see who influenced them but nicely done.
  44. Google translate has a lot to answer for! I admire your courage in buying items that have an uncertain history, although that means you can buy based on whether you simply love the object without prec...
  45. V. jealous, stunning piece!
  46. Don't worry you are not alone in having a muddy mind, you can add French glass to that list. This month I found two pieces that blew a couple of my theories clean out of the water! Back to the drawing...
  47. Love your knobbly glass.
  48. Beautiful, it looks like carved ice. This is one of the best pieces of Japanese glass I have seen.
  49. Funny, you are not the first person to say that! Regards William.
  50. Just messing with you Scott, beautiful piece of glass.
