  1. Weird coincidences, love 'em :) I don't know if they are by the same hand, ones much nicer than the other, but they do have similarities. I've not been able to find any alike in any colour :(
  2. Thank you Anne & Ken. It's too small for a lampshade, it's only a little thing. I've seen them a few times, some still have their collars :)
  3. Lol, you two. What a great toy Genevieve, I've never seen one before...I'm too young to remember them ;)
  4. Thanks Kyratango. If I could put him away with the Bears I would ;)
  5. Absolutely gorgeous!
  6. Wow! I thought it was just a figurine. How super!
  7. Hi Sharon. They're beautiful and well worth £1 each! What a bargain. Are you sure they're not silver :)
  8. I've never seen glass mushrooms before. Aren't they nicely made.
  9. Great fun. I like your reasoning. Maybe you should get a boat in there :)
  10. Great fun :)
  11. Beautiful. I love the little Vaseline one!
  12. Hi Inky, you have some fantastic (large:) bits of glass. Great info too:)
  13. Beautiful
  14. How wonderful indeed! It must be a joy to find your vase in a book like this.
  15. Hi Ian. Fancy finding all this in a shop in Rio. I'd thought I'd died & gone to heaven too, and probably spent all my holiday money in one go :)
  16. What a weird & wonderful thing. It must play with light in all sorts of ways. Great info too, as always, have you ever considered writing a book or have a web page? :)
  17. Wow, this ones great! I Never come across glass like this :(
  18. Hi Karen. Simple & elegant. You find some lovely, unusual glass :)
  19. How cute. I Love the robot! :)
  20. Lol! You're funny Sergey. He's a greedy bear!
  21. Hi Sean, they're much smaller than they look. I remember when I first saw one of these at an antiques fair & surprised by how small they are, only about 6-7"! Hello Anne :) they do look lovely togethe...
  22. Thank you Karen :) I was so relieved it didn't get damaged. The plate, a nice iron Stone Willow Pattern, was destroyed :(
  23. Thank you Sergey :) I don't know about poppy heads or scientific researches but I was thinking it would make a nice small bulb vase :)
  24. Thank you Craig, Michelle & Peggy. Craig, I thought you might have one :) Peggy if you want to go halves on one let me know :) I'll add my email addy to my profile.
  25. My son dropped a dinner plate and knocked it off the table..my heart missed a beat! I almost cried, luckily he wasn't damaged..phew :) now its out of harms way with the Bears.
  26. Hi Peggy, you bet he's staying. I didn't get him cheap, it was a treat from eBay :)
  27. Thanks for the comments Katherine, TA & Peggy. TA, I wondered if it could be commemorative but for what I don't know. I couldn't find anything relating specially to 1909. Katherine, it could be a repr...
  28. What a neat find!! I bet it was kick :) I'd love to find something like this.
  29. Hi Sergey. Love the brooch. No nothing about stamps. Loved your post :)
  30. Agree with all of the above. Amazing! They could be in a museum! And what a nice story :)
  31. I meant hi Thomas. It's in fabulous condition too.
  32. Hi Bunnes, and welcome. I love these old coin banks. This ones a beauty. Thanks for sharing it :)
  33. Shouldn't love it. It's a gun! But appreciate the craftsmanship
  34. Aww what's wrong with fish not to be liked? This ones a beauty!
  35. Thank you for the love and nice comments everyone :)
  36. Thank you Vetraio:) I think so too. The beaver is only 7cm tall. Nicely stylised.
  37. Ahh I thought it looked like Sklo's 3 balled vase. Very nice.
  38. Lovely Sean, I've had glass with pads on before. I removed them once but wished I hadn't, they were stuck on so well they were likely always there. IMHO if there original I'd leave them on :)

  41. Thank you Sean...this one is definitely by Whitefriars..no ifs or buts this time..lol
  42. Lol, I was going to say probably Indian but didn't risk it. Thank you Kyratango :)
  43. Thank you glassmadshaz
  44. Actually I think their real name is Dilly duck, I'm not sure which sounds funnier, lol. I'd better change the listing though
  45. Aye shareurpassion. It sounds even funnier said out loud ;)
  46. Thanks GeodeJem, wonderful. The seller said it would've been used for presicion engineering, I doubt for one moment he'd considered cake making! Lol I've not come across another hexagonal one but did...
  47. Beautiful..well worth the mad dash :)
  48. Lol, love the title. The poor brother who didn't make it in Hollywood, because he's not Pink!
  49. Hi Craig, Another amazing post. I agree with Rick, half the appreciation of glass comes from learning about it. So Thank you. And agree again, beautifully presented in the last photo :) not cluttered ...
  50. Beautiful & unusual. Love the ribbing on them.
