  1. Very lucky to find this one. This potter is highly collectable, and is very well regarded.
  2. Thanks racer4four, it's the first Lowe piece I have ever found, so that's a thrill.
  3. Thanks Sean. It's been quiet on the collectors front! I see you've been adding to your collection.
  4. Thankyou vetrio50. Photographs well. It has some very interesting textures and bubbles. Full of character.
  5. I wonder if it's part of something bigger? Xmas decoration? Agree with likely maker, pukeberg. Nice find!
  6. That's a top find. Very collectable. Well done!
  7. Yes, Benjamin Landara, that's it. It's a simple one, I'll load it up tomorrow.
  8. Great piece. I found one last year on my birthday. It's by Landara, AN's son-in-law. I'll post it for you.
  9. Pretty stylish. Does it function well?
  10. Would love to see some Flamestone pop up, but I've never seen anything locally.
  11. Confirmed! IKEA Salong vase in ochre!
  12. LOL, Na, you 're building me up too much.
  13. LOL race4four At this rate I'll run out posts by this time tomorrow!
  14. I have one of these birds too. Mine came from eBay a couple of years ago. They are a little strange, acquired taste, I think. I believe they are from the early 1970s.
  15. I was going to ask if you ever slept? All best
  16. Unfortunately missing the teapot. Seems to be my theme LOL
  17. Thankyou, I'll take a look!
  18. Yes, I'm always picking up orphan bits and pieces. The thrill is in the find !
  19. LOL. Not really showing off, but the things people throw out!
  20. I have one of these which belonged to my grandmother. I've seen an illustration of them in a book, they were available by mail order!
  21. These are beautiful. Well done!
  22. Thankyou #solver I'm missing the teapot, so I don't suppose one will fall into my lap anytime soon. I did manage to find some GJ salad servers recently, thrown into the random cutlery bin for 50 cents...
  23. This is one of the most beautiful pieces of glass I have ever seen! Not going to find that in a thrift .
  24. Pal Bell as far as I know was set up very early so tourists could bring something home from Israel. There are lots of very iconic pieces, but this is the one I like best. The designs were much copied ...
  25. Oh , thanks for that, I had been wondering.... I only paid five dollars for it so I'm still happy, and it does appear to be good quality. Just goes to show, you can never be too careful. Do you happen...
  26. It's a fascinating era. There were some phenomenal designers working at that time. Sadly, now many of them have passed away.
  27. Oh, thankyou. Wasn't sure anyone would appreciate them but me, but I have been proved wrong. Why haven't I seen this site before?
  28. Oh, thankyou. Very kind of you to say so. I just love good mid-century design. It was such a golden age for designers.
  29. I've only recently discovered Hoglund after finding my piece in a thrift shop. I could tell as soon a I picked it up it was art glass, then I saw the engraved numbers etc. it's the same green as your ...
  30. Oh thankyou. I didn't know that. Have tried many times to get an Orchid vase, but no luck there!
  31. There are so many studios to discover. I love researching pieces when the maker isn't obviously evident.
  32. Oh, that's interesting. I found the clear one at a second hand dealer thrown in with the Vegemite glasses! It has a sticker which says FORUM Melbourne, with a 6 digit ph number, which seems to indicat...
  33. It's a lovely piece. Like all good art glass, the surface has a silky feel. The piece is very heavy. I think their glass is very underrated.
  34. Thankyou. I'm very lucky to have them. I would like a taller one, maybe in blue. Brilliant design, you don't see them all that often.
  35. Thankyou for the comments. I had thought Benny Motzfeldt too, although not signed in any way so unsure. I paid very little for it in a thrift, but have been told that the radiating bubbles have taken ...
