  1. Thank you scott, It's nice to know I'm not the only one:) I'm kind of addicted to them. If you're lucky they can be found really cheap.
  2. I just noticed another way this differs from my other eagles, it's the only one that doesn't sit flush against a wall. It's designed perfectly to be picked up by the tail and looks worn smooth by peop...
  3. Me too kivatinitz, as can be seen by 1/2 my postings. This one was an eBay buy, I can't believe no one else wanted it and for not much money. Maybe we're a rare breed for loving them ;)
  4. Thank you for the loves and comments everyone. Canyon Road thank you for the Ukranian suggestion, I hadn't thought of that:) I had a look and found many eagles but none quite like this, which was why ...
  5. How pretty. It's great to see it with the modern photo.
  6. Hi Peggy. These are lovely, I like the green base colour. Can I ask, is the tall vase by Welz as well?
  7. Ooh Lovely, I've never come across straw art before either, thank you for posting it :)
  8. Ooh a cheesy horror I've not heard of..I must look this one up! thank you :)
  9. As for cleaning them, I totally agree with you..leave them be they look great as they are. I learned that lesson the hard way after spoiling a few things with over zealous cleaning!
  10. Really beautiful, I'd be wearing it all the time:) I bet it'd look fabulous on a black background.
  11. Hi Karen, thank you :) I know very little about them too, and am terrible at identifying types of wood. I do love them though. I've just bought another (stamped USSR and ever so like this one) I'll po...
  12. Hi everyone, thank you for all the 'loves' and comments :) Thank you TallCakes & Karen, I really should have guessed Hong Kong as a possible country of origin. I have a little collection of oil lamps ...
  13. Wow again! An unusual shape for tango I've not seen before. It works so well.
  14. Hi OneGoodFind, This is interesting, I have an oil lamp made of what looks like the exact same glass. I was going to post it ages ago then forgot until I saw yours here. They're so alike I wonder if t...
  15. Another great vase! Again, the colours are fantastic, that orange looks 'splashed' on, love the twist and crimps too.
  16. Lovely Ian. I really like the colours on this.
  17. Mmm it's gorgeous. Well spotted!
  18. Wonderful!
  19. What a great find! I'd be wearing them all the time.
  20. What a lovely figure and interesting info from NB about Japanese dress, I learnt something new :)
  21. I can't resist wooden figures or animals. She's lovely.
  22. Aren't these weirdly wonderfull. I've never come across them...yet :)
  23. What wonderful colours! I have one which looks like the same shape but is only pink and white. I love this multi coloured version.
  24. Thank you for the loves mike, TassieDevi & Efesgirl, this one's a bootsale buy, and wasn't expensive. I got it because it's piqued my interest rather than being stunningly beautiful. It's so roughly ...
  25. Hi Michelle, thank you for your comment & input. I did think the 'decoupage' (it does describe the effect very well:) resembled other Welz decoupage decors I have and it has a Bohemian 'look'. Did no ...
  26. Hi Phil, thank you for your comment and info. I did see the seams but thought maybe they were left unfinished because it was cheap in its day. I'd love a period bronze one, but in the meantime this wi...
  27. Thank you aura, isn't she just :)
  28. Hi Ivan, I wish they would explain their decision. Franz Welz was mentioned here but not confirmed. Its quality looks on a par to Welz and Bohemian but, other countries made nice glass too and I've no...
  29. Thank you Craig. I thought it probably was Oxblood, as it crops up quite often, I have a few variations of it, but this ones a first :) It can look very different colours depending on the outer coat, ...
  30. Thank you for the comments and loves everyone :)
  31. Ooh, CW has categorised this as Bohemian, how do they know I wonder ?:-S
  32. Here's the expert you need :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/162454-snowflake-china-vase-1960s
  33. Hi fleafinder, thank you for the compliment but I'm not an expert, I've only been collecting glass since I joined CW. There are many very helpful experts here though. Having said that I do recognise y...
  34. Thank you. When I first saw it I thought it was a posy vase missing it's frog (as they usually are) Interesting that you both think it had a lid. The foot is very deeply 'cut in' to the base of the va...
  35. Hi Ivan49, thank you for your input on my vase, I did wonder if it could've had a lid and maybe a frame as well. It's the same colours as your Welz here but hasn't any glittery bits in the green, whic...
  36. Gorgeous gorgeous!!
  37. Very interesting post. I'd didn't know any of it. A talented person who made it.
  38. Hi Scott, sorry it's taken me two months but I've only just seen this. It really is mines twin, they're identical. Same size too. Thank you for posting it :)
  39. Ha, this has bought back memories. Thank you. As a teenager I had one of these, I wish I still did. I think it was mono but boy it sounded great, as I remember.
  40. A Really great find!! Well done. I love Art Deco, bookends and animals, what's not to love:) They're superb.
  41. Absolutely amazing! and love the old photos.
  42. Great post, I find fascinating to see the drawings and finished article together. thank you
  43. To echo others 'cool'. Amazing it's glass, I thought it looked ceramic.
  44. Hi ho2, love your cloisonné. I love its colours, size and is in such good condition.
  45. Hi Dave. What fun. Id love to be out driving as pass one of these!
  46. Hi Bonnie. What thrift store is that exactly? Only kidding, I couldn't get there if I wanted to. What great items and bargains!
  47. Mmm pink and green, a lovely decor.
  48. More glass to drool over. U have an amazing collection! I love thorn/stem vases. The Welz on the end in the last photo, I've not seen that decor in a stem vase before, really nice.
  49. Three beautiful pieces in the same decor, one which I've yet to see in real life, they look great here!
  50. This is great too! I love it's texture.
