  1. Thank you Craig & Scott. I thought it must be a Welz in this decor.
  2. Thank you Ken and Robin. I have a 1950s era Silver Crest Fenton compote, so can compare the two. This is thinner glass, has leaf feet and is made from an opalescent like glass, compared to the pure wh...
  3. Hi Efesgirl, If I ever find a thin enough brush I'll give it a go, thank you. If it is a wasp I think it's fossilised! Whatever it is its hard like stone. I reached it with pipe cleaners and couldn't...
  4. Hi Anne, ooh I hope you remember where you've seen them before :) I never dreamed I'd get them IDed. They're 7 1/2" high and were cheap, as ones chipped, I'd still have paid more for them, so was very...
  5. Hi Anne, thank you. Yes very pleased :) I have two pieces now, in this Aqua marine colour.
  6. Me too kivatinitz (as you may have gathered from my posts:)
  7. Thankyou Karen, Agree, it looks FAB under UV:) Peggy, I'm not sure what shade of green to call it, turquoise or sea-green maybe. I have a perfume bottle listed which is the same colour. It's not your ...
  8. Peggy, I meant to add earlier that I agree with you wholeheartedly. The decoration is nicely understated and compliments their shape beautifully. These made it worth getting up early :) They're so thi...
  9. I'd love to see them. I wonder how many there are..
  10. Stunning. All your lamps are wonderful, but this is my favourite. I love the blue.
  11. Hi Mike, what a lovely lady and super find. Aren't the best things always hidden at the back of a dark shelf!
  12. Kerry, How generous. If I was local to you I'd be asking you to look at some broken watches of mine, lol.
  13. Another great find! If you ever get it going I'd love to see it lit up.
  14. You can count me in, if I could get there:( Loved, and agreed with, Karen's comment, ' green and glass, always worth posting':) It's very nice. Does it have a little iridescence? It's hard to tell ...
  15. I must say, I prefer your pitcher. Lovely detail.
  16. hi kivatinitz, I agree with EZa, I love the bright colours and Egyptian theme. I thought you might like to see this plate I posted today, it's quite similar.. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/storie...
  17. Fabulous jar MacArt. Love it's shape & colours. This is the first time I've seen bohemian millefiori..(I thought it was all Murano or Chinese;)
  18. Oh Anne, what a beautiful colour! I was going to say 'powder blue' before I read 'lilac' & 'periwinkle', lol. I find it can be hard to capture true colour in photos, I often have to take many before g...
  19. Oh WOW! Kerry, I think this has to be my favourite of all your clocks and watches. It ticks so many boxes. Animation, Bakelite and I love the painted scene (I've not seen that before) and the fact tha...
  20. What a fabulous watch and story. You've done an amazing job!
  21. What an interesting post and Beautiful clock. Can I join Zowie for a rummage in your attic? I don't have one either but do have cupboards of cardboard boxes full of things I've forgotten about.
  22. I love your new trunk too. It's a beauty. Love the strapping.
  23. Oh Lee, these are stunning! They took my breath away. The purple one is gorgeous. How on earth glass makers can produce something like that is so way above my head, its Magic.
  24. Beautiful!
  25. Thank you Sklo & Kerry. I'm very happy with them:) I just need to find a place for them to live now. The sweet lady that sold them was surprised to find they were uranium. She said her son collects it...
  26. Thanks for the 'love' Vetraio :)
  27. Snap with Michelle, great post
  28. What a Wonderful vase Eza. I love its shape and colours!
  29. Wow Beautiful! Unusual to see a bowl like this in uranium. I'm green with envy..:)
  30. I'd not heard of Awaji, one to look out for, this is beautiful!
  31. Hi Peggy. Ooh Love the colours on this one, yellowww:) I have a rose bowl the same shape as this, I think, I can't compare their rims because of the collar. I used to have it posted here but must have...
  32. Hi Katherine. I'd seen that page before, shortly after getting these. Wonderful links to have here, thank you. I've added the two new arrivals :)
  33. Hi Katherine. Thank you for the link. Interesting about the name Anri. I've never come across any figures like the girl with doll. I'd love to though. She's lovely and looks so of the '60s. They must ...
  34. Oh wow. What a find! That's one flashy kids bike! I hope you get an answer as to who made it.
  35. Snap with Robin. I Love it. And love crows (they're very intelligent birds you know :)
  36. Cool. Love it's shape. I've never seen one like it.
  37. Ooh what a lovely piece fortapache. I've been after a uranium orange squeezer for awhile. I like that its yellow, bonus :)
  38. Lovely ho2. Really attractive.
  39. Hi Karen, when I saw the thumbnail of this I thought it would be yours :) very nice. I saw something similar recently, I wonder if it was by the same artist. Sadly it was way out of my price range. So...
  40. Peggy, you don't drink tea! But you're British. Lol. I was just going to add a bit about same decors looking different. It's surprising how different they can look. I have four vases in the same deco...
  41. Hi Karen. Im so pleased he's mine! :) I feel a bit sad for the loser. I've been in that position more times than I can remember. Thank you Antiquerose. He's a bit of a rarity.
  42. Thank you Robin. I'll see if I can find another example. I tried shining a torch right on it and could just be seen a dark purple spot, so its not totally opaque.
  43. Hi Robin, maybe. Though if its soldered with lead I'm not sure it's a good idea to keep anything in it, or, probably handle it. Oh well, too late :) How old would you guess it is and why? I wondered i...
  44. Thank you Robin and Postcardcollector. Very interesting. I thought this maybe old mainly by its 'feet' and pontil. It's thin glass, compared to a modern Fenton I have, and has colourful reflections, w...
  45. Hi Robin. I should have put its size in the description. I will rectify that now:) thank you. It's a bit small for ciggys at 5.5cm sq. I would love it to be Art Deco but don't have a clue how old it...
  46. Thank you Peggy, I thought so too:) even with its broken feet. Kitvatinitz, if by Vaseline you mean is it uranium, no sadly it's not, but I thought it was, the green and red & gold reflections fooled ...
  47. Thank you Scot and Craig. I don't suppose either of you have ever seen a smooth pedestal? :)
  48. Thank you Karen. That's wonderful news. I had to google Showa, I'm terribly ignorant of Japanese history. If I decide to part with them your'll be the first to know. How odd they seem more prevelant w...
  49. Ah aah, thank you TallCakes. Wow, what a frog it is! I expected a simple round one. I've never seen a pelican frog before. I think I'll be lucky to find one. Thank you Kerry, it's nice to be missed :...
  50. Aren't these fun. Love 'em
