  1. Hi Peggy. No there's not. Why? :)
  2. Thanks for the loves and comments. Ian & Michelle, I'm on a quest to find its other half :) If anyone has a pestestal, in any decor, they think would go with this I'd love to see it, I'd know what to ...
  3. Thanks for the loves and nice comments everyone. Michelle, it was the dog which attracted me to it :)
  4. Katherine, I've been puzzling over what you mean by FWIW, I can't work it out. Please put me out of my misery. Lol
  5. Thank you oldandsilly. Luckily this was ever so cheap, I guess the shop noticed the crack which I didn't. I didn't get it expecting it to be old, or anything, so I'm not disappointed. I'd never come a...
  6. Thank you Roy (I hope that's your name:)
  7. Hi oldandsilly and Katherine. I came this on eBay by American maker called Two's Company", from around the '60s & '70s, do you think the vases that used to be posted were by them? Their tortoise she...
  8. Thanks oldandsilly & Katherine. Interesting. A friend thought it could be Edwardian, I thought the '30s & now its moved right up to the '60s! Where are those vases now? Lol I had a look through art gl...
  9. I like how there's just the right amount of dark bits to look like tortoise shell through both sides of the pot, singularly they look a bit sparse.
  10. Thank you Postcardcollector. I decided to keep it, for awhile anyway. It's unusual. I've been trying to find one alike but I've had no luck so far.
  11. A pleasure kyratango :)
  12. Thank you Robin. I did wonder but know there's a lot of Chinese paperweights about, and that they usually have a matte base.
  13. What a fabulous turkey!
  14. Stunning! Do you know if its uranium?
  15. What Lovely colour Ian & to have a label! Is that rarer than the glass? Lol
  16. What a beauty Peggy! (You find some unusual glass yourself :) I love that pink, all the colours are nice, I've never seen a combination like it.
  17. Here's a link to a great web page for all different types of glass, inc. Tortiose shell. http://theantiquarian.us/Glass%20Types.htm (Posted for my own reference, or I'll never find it again :)
  18. They're such Beautiful, quality items.
  19. Found it! :) its stunning.
  20. This is very nice. I do love boats.
  21. Great collection kivatinitz. I never knew those tall vases came in uranium...thats one to look out for :) thank you
  22. Hi kivatinitz, thank you :) is your little box tortoise shell glass also? I'd love to see it. I've not been able to find much to compare this with. It has more of a 'ragged' pattern of thick glass bit...
  23. She's wonderful! So Art Deco :)
  24. Thank you Postcardcollector:) I never dreamt it could be that old. I've been reading a bit about it. A tortiose shell glass was patented in England 1880 by a Pohl & Wittman, probably imported from Ger...
  25. Thank you postcardcollector. That's fascinating. Do you think this could be older than the '30s then? I only guessed that really because of the fashion for tortiose shell & faux tortiose shell at that...
  26. Karen, I expected you to say "Chinese", lol.
  27. May I ask if anyone thinks this is Italian, Murano, Chinese or another? Or how old it might be? It has a dull base, which isn't dead flat. The millefiori are tiny compared to another example I have. I...
  28. Thank you pw-collector, you've done my work for me :) So this has to date from 1900. Which fits in with my guess of around 1910, from his clothes.
  29. Thank you Ken and Anne, its a really nice bright green (I spotted it a mile off :) I got to the sale late and was surprised to see something like this still there at the price it was.
  30. Thank you Karen & everyone who's 'loved' :)
  31. Hi Karen. I tried scouring it, which got some off. Then I had the bright idea of trying Viacal descaler. It worked a treat :)
  32. Indeed:) Does aventurine only come in green? just out of curiosity, may I ask if this type of spatter, with a rough surface, have a name or term to differentiate it from other spatters which are smo...
  33. Hi Dave. Thanks for the link. I wonder how old this one is. I thought the guy looked a bit Edwardian but I'm not too up on men's fashion :)
  34. Thank you Katherine & frrjr2. I started searching eBay for owls, I didn't find it but gave up looking before the end. There're a LOT of owls on eBay!
  35. Hi Craig. I read that they're not literally end of day glass, its just this type of spatter, with surface relief, is what I think of as End of Day. I guess the first time I came across it it was proba...
  36. Hi Bob. What an unusual cameo. I love it! I like anything to do with boats
  37. Oh lovely Karen. I still have an SY tin robot from the late 1960s. Not worth a great deal, it's been played to death and doesn't spark anymore, but it still winds up and moves:) I think they're great ...
  38. I always think of this type of spatter as 'end of day' glass...am I wrong? :-S
  39. Lovely Peggy. I've been 'tickled pink' to find I have a Welz on more than one occasion. I wondered, if this one turns out to be Welz does that mean the 3 Craig linked to are also Welz?
  40. Hi Craig. Beautiful! I love the blue. Im amazed at the variety of hexagonal shapes! The blue and green one on the left of picture 3 looks a bit different. Are they all by Welz in your opinion? Do you ...
  41. What great earrings!
  42. Lol. Me too! I'm forever having to go back and change words. I still understood you:)
  43. Sorry, I see the last three in the catalogue are fairy lamps. The first, blue, image is the same pedestal vase as seen here but with the different bowl. Is that bowl ribbed also?
  44. Hi Craig. Great post. I'd forgotten it since I first read it. The catalogue photo shows a variety of pedestals. Do they all have separate vases do you know? I've never come across one for sale and onl...
  45. Thank you so much Jim! It's not the prettiest piece I've seen by a long shot but its cheap. You've convinced me to save my money and keep looking :) the bottom half of a fairy lamp, not as nice as th...
  46. Hi Jim. I thought I would take you up on your kind offer of help and ask your opinion on this? I'm considering bidding on it, if it doesn't get too high, and just wanted to check it is Burmese. Also d...
  47. Thank you Anne, how nice of you to say so :) its a good job I do have purges, I can't see me slowing down.
  48. Ooh, thank you for the lead fhrjr2, I'll see if I can find out more about it :)
  49. Thank you Alan. Seems Ian was right in the beginning with it somewhere between Harrach & Welz, lol. Hi Anne, thank you :) funny but when I got it I wasnt going to keep it, but I'm changing my mind, s...
  50. Thank you Ken and Peggy :) Ken I hadn't noticed. Though you could probably add another 100, at least, to that. I have a purge every so often deleting old posts. I dread to think how many if I'd kept ...
