  4. What a wonderful collection, that last, pink striped one...ooh, to die for
  5. Fabulous vase & great detective work :)
  6. Hi Rick, thank you, I must say I agree with Everything you say. I can't stop caressing it.
  7. Hi Scott, we do have similar taste, I love all your glass! I could see me owning any of the pieces you have. These two a perfect example. Though not identical, I have two vases very similar, in shape ...
  8. It was a pleasure Scott, thanks for sharing :) It's interesting yours is identical in every way except has red cherries, like the basket I have posted. They reflect the light and stand out more than ...
  9. Thank you Karen, me too :) I love Victorian era glass. To my eye this is so quintessentially Victorian.
  10. Thank you for the loves and comments everyone. Scott i find it quite amazing we have so many duplicates, I count 4!! We obviously have Very similar taste :)
  11. Lovely, what unusual colours..I've yet to find one for f these :)
  12. I can't resist a nice box and this is very nice :)
  13. Hi JImam, thank you. I've never heard of Dawn before but'll see if I can find it or an equivelant. I'll post the results, if it works :)
  14. Hi Richierobs. It's a lovely colour. Do you know if it's uranium glass?
  15. Hi Peggy. I agree with Michelle, just a wonderful collection. They really show the subtle variety of shapes well.
  16. A woman after my own heart, I too love glass animals!
  17. Oh wow, how cool. I Love the tiger and sheep, and the tortoise shell piggy is wonderful.
  18. Hi Sean, Oh he's so sweet! Love love love
  19. What a great collection. I've never seen such variety in one decor!
  20. Ooh lovely. What a wonderful shape. The variety of different Welz shapes seem endless!
  21. Lovely vase Rick, the clear does make it appear encased in ice. Wonderful info too about Battuto and Cold Working etc. Thank you :)
  22. Hi jscotto, thank you, I agree :) I've had bubble glass in the past, inc. a French bowl very similar to this, with a cork lid, it was more modern than this though and not in uranium green, this is the...
  23. 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.
  24. 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 ;)
  25. How pretty. It's great to see it with the modern photo.
  26. Hi Peggy. These are lovely, I like the green base colour. Can I ask, is the tall vase by Welz as well?
  27. Ooh Lovely, I've never come across straw art before either, thank you for posting it :)
  28. 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!
  29. Really beautiful, I'd be wearing it all the time:) I bet it'd look fabulous on a black background.
  30. 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...
  31. 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 ...
  32. Wow again! An unusual shape for tango I've not seen before. It works so well.
  33. 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...
  34. Another great vase! Again, the colours are fantastic, that orange looks 'splashed' on, love the twist and crimps too.
  35. Lovely Ian. I really like the colours on this.
  36. Wonderful!
  37. What a great find! I'd be wearing them all the time.
  38. What a lovely figure and interesting info from NB about Japanese dress, I learnt something new :)
  39. I can't resist wooden figures or animals. She's lovely.
  40. Aren't these weirdly wonderfull. I've never come across them...yet :)
  41. What wonderful colours! I have one which looks like the same shape but is only pink and white. I love this multi coloured version.
  42. 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 ...
  43. 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...
  44. Thank you aura, isn't she just :)
  45. 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...
  46. 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, ...
  47. Thank you for the comments and loves everyone :)
  48. Ooh, CW has categorised this as Bohemian, how do they know I wonder ?:-S
  49. Here's the expert you need :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/162454-snowflake-china-vase-1960s
  50. 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...
