  1. As I have always said, more is more!
  2. It looks more like a a pint of Guinness to me, poured by an amateur! Hope you are keeping well Karen. Best wishes from wet and windy France.
  3. I have a Hospodka piece in clear so it does exist, however it is rare!
  4. I think the reason is simply that as 2 million medals were required the Paris mint could not strike all of them. It is true that there are unofficial medals but they are of a different design on the o...
  5. Bayel French cristal not Bayez!
  6. Looks french 1940's or 1950's. Cant see enough of name in photo to hazard a guess!
  7. Front label appears to have been stuck on a bottle of Italian wine, this is a fantasy piece, complete with modern barcodes etc.
  8. Looks like the work of Patrick Nagel from the 1980's. Here is a link to wikipedia.
  9. French moulded glass vase from the 1960's. Possibly Arcoroc, Luminarc or one of many other producers in the period. Difficult to be more specific as usually they aren't signed although most do say "Fr...
  10. I think Avro Lancaster, could do with a better photo!
  11. Quiet day today?
  12. I think could be a very large She-wee, when you just gotta go!
  13. Glad to be of service, the shape is sometimes referred to as a "Splash vase", you can see why, but I have no idea if this is the official name given by the company as French records aren't great. Wil...
  14. Full title Cofrac Art Verrerie, I have a similar piece in clear glass,without the gold. Regards William
  15. Try Cofrac French glass, it looks very like a lot of French glass I see here.
  16. Happy birthday Sean!
  17. Beautiful!
  18. OMG! I want to fly to Australia just to hold this one!!!
  19. Ditto, ditto, ditto! What Sean said!
  20. Worth ten quid all day long! Beautiful piece.
  21. Stunning Sean ;-).
  22. No luck with the research I am afraid, Defer is not a well known "graveur" so I can't find any information about him. The medal is reasonably common here in France but is nevertheless collectible. W...
  23. Do you keep salt in the shakers? Salt pitting and green corrosion marks will appear quite quickly on Silver or silver plating. Ammonia will clean the green residue but won't obviously repair any damag...
  24. Hi Paris, I remember you mentioning your museum in a previous posting, how is it progressing, when can we come visit? William
  25. I would imagine if these were salts they would need a glass liner otherwise the salt would destroy the silver.
  26. Hi Agram, Your medal is French, signed Defer and is silver-plated bronze if other medals on french e-bay are to be believed. I have found no information about Defer but am looking for more informati...
  27. Thanks also artistinside, nuts and Sean for kind comments and loves.
  28. Thanks Ivonne for the information, I thought Klimt was the seller/dealer and Crystallia Bohemia was the producer but now I am not sure if mine is older and Czech or newer and Chinese. I believe the pr...
  29. Hello artistinside, my apologies, 33 inches would be very impressive indeed! It is "only" 33cm (I have corrected my error) but still weighs in at around 2.7kg. I have no intentions of selling it, it ...
  30. Thanks to aghcollect, vetraio, mikelv, katherinescollections and racer4four for the loves.
  31. Hi Karen, I think the moulds are now in the hands of the Chinese, I assume they simply bought the Crystallite Bohemia moulds and/or factory. Seems to be happening more and more.
  32. Hi Katherine, thanks for the comment. They appear to be identical but I havent held the Chinese copy in my hand yet (I hope) to see if there any obvious differences.
  33. 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,...
  34. 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...
  35. May have a military application, but not necessarily, the Nazis did like to put swastikas on everything in the 1930's!
  36. 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 ...
  37. 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
  38. Wow! Another beauty.
  39. Loving the colour!
  40. Simple and beautiful, much like myself.
  41. Could first word be "British". W
  42. Sorry Karen, just yanking your chain. Love this one despite the questionable colour combination. :-) W
  43. I once coughed up something very similar.
  44. Happy Australia Day to you Karen and the rest of the clan.
  45. Love the colours. Favourite is definitely the vase, gorgeous design.
  46. 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 ...
  47. 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
  48. Everything is bigger in Australia Karen!
  49. Thanks to eye, agh, racer, vetraio, austroh, Mike, Sean and Rose for the loves.
  50. Thanks Sean, Antiquerose, Racer4four and eye4beauty for the kind comments.
