When I was about six my father used to take me and my five brothers and sisters into the woods upstate New York to dig for bottles. I found a piece of hand painted When I was about six my father used to take me and my five brothers and sisters into the woods upstate New York to dig for bottles. I found a piece of hand painted china that was only half there. I was so fascinated by that one piece that I went digging every chance I could. Over the years found mostly broken glass and some whole bottles. My parents took us to the Corning Glass Museum one summer and that is when I morphed into a glass lover. Been collecting glass for about 30 years. I collect anything eclectic that I like and some that are just too nice to pass up. It is an addiction albeit a beautiful one. (Read more)

  2. It was such an elegant time for fashion.
  3. There is no tinge in my piece, I think it is just where I took the pictures. I am sure this is a Murano.
  4. Could not get them on British Antiques Roadshow. Am not sure how it works.

  10. No marks and I use them
  11. Thank you both.
  12. So envious, I love the Gatsby Era. What an awesome tribute. Wish I could have been there.
  13. TallCakes, it is very hard to tell whether it is amber or a very deep pink. I do not like amber, but I love this plain looking vase. It definitely has a 20's feel to it. Thank you.
  14. Thank you TallCakes, you are a wealth of information!
  15. My pleasure, I wish I knew as much as TallCakes so I could be more helpful. Everyone on this site is so very generous with their comments.
  16. Thank younutsabotas6. Yes, we are fortunate.

  26. Lol, thanks for the explanation fhrjr2.
  27. Haha. My dad lived in Watkins Glen for awhile. Did your dad have the heat cranked high too?
  28. You were correct fhrjr2, thank you!
  29. Dbclary, collectors weekly put it under Murano. I didn't have it under Murano because I wasn't sure so maybe they know more than we do about this particular vase.
  30. Thank you fhrjr2, will do.

  37. This is breathtaking!

  43. I am so amazed that someone's interest is piqued beside mine, I love this piece, but it isn't glamorous! Guess we are the only ones with good taste...lol! Def looks Victorian and Murano!
  44. Lol. I won't blunderbuss2. Thanks. I needed the chuckle.
  45. PS, there are no bubbles in the glass, that is just the light glinting off the inclusions.
  46. Love, love, love these two pieces!
  47. Thanks racer4four, I added the pontil pic and also put a sunlight pic in, it comes to life in the sunlight.
  48. Thank you racer4four.
  49. Thank you! I completely agree.
  50. Can anyone tell me how to clean this piece? It is difficult to get on the inside. Vinegar perhaps?
