  1. Thank you so much, everyone, for the enthusiastic comments! It's great that you like the pendant - now I'll make sure to take some photos of the other pieces I have!
  2. Thanks, Sean!
  3. Thanks for the comments and loves! Yes, vetraio, Holmegaard also made these types of markers, and I too really like the ones from Fyen. Now I only need the other 24 colours!
  4. I actually saw them twice in 1982 - at a festival and a few months later at a separate concert. Little did we know how big they would eventually become! (I haven't been able to afford it since!)
  5. It looks very inspired by Canaletto's Palazzo Ducale painting... What size is it?
  6. I was envious two years ago - still am! It's so beautiful!
  7. Thanks aura and AmphoraPottery!
  8. Thanks, Pamela!
  9. Thanks, Sean!

  11. Thanks, blunderbuss, kyra and ho2cultcha!
  12. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  13. Amazing - I have a penchant for the pre-Raphaelites!
  14. Thanks, kyra!
  15. Thanks for the usefuld comments (and the loves), everyone!
  16. I am so glad that I saw this post as I recently bought a glass vase on a flea market without quite knowing what it was (except that it was definitely not a Danish or even Scandinavian vase)! Now I kno...
  17. Thanks, vetraio! Yes, sometimes you're lucky!
  18. Thanks, VioletOrange!
  19. Thanks, inky!

  23. Thanks, surfdub66!
  24. Merci beaucoup, Alan!
  25. I agree - such a magnificent opal doesn't need diamonds!
  26. It looks like an Ife head from Nigeria - probably a moden copy (if not, it can be valuable). I have one in terracotta; it's fascinating! Google it and see for yourself if there aren't similarities!
  27. Perhaps I misunderstand you - but the book is definitely marked. There are two little marks (Swedish, as far as I can see) below the owl's feet!
  28. Thanks for the comment, VioletOrange, and thanks for the loves, everyone!
  29. Baltic Sea Glass seems to be run by two glass artists (Maibritt Jönsson og Pete Hunner) located on the ssland of Bornholm (Denmark) in the Baltic Sea. Here's their home page: http://www.balticseaglass...
  30. Thanks, Sean!
  31. Thanks, Sean!
  32. Thanks, sklo and Radegunder!
  33. I suspected that it might be of later date - thanks for the info, IMASapp!
  34. Hi IMASapp - perhaps you can help me out with my little fairy lamp? Here it is: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/169781-fairy-lamp-england-late-19th-cent?in=activity
  35. Thanks, racer4four and VioletOrange!
  36. Thanks, Efesgirl!
  37. Yes, I suppose so. I thought of it, but I have not been able to test it. Thanks, Elisabethan - I love it, too!
  38. Thanks, vetraio! I am not sure where the tray comes from - I believe it belonged to my grandparents and somehow ended up in my household.
  39. Beautiful!
  40. Thanks, everyone! Sean, no marks except for the pontil mark.
  41. Thanks, Sean! And thanks for the loves, everyone!
  42. Thanks,Cormoran1925! And also thanks to robin56, melaniej, vetraio, Ivonne, kyratango, aghcollect, VioletOrange, and racer4four!
  43. It certainly is a beauty!
  44. Thanks, peasejean - I will certainly keep you informed! Unfortunately I haven't been able to take it to a specialist or the like, as I have had to spend time on this annoying thing called 'work'! Hope...
  45. Thank you for the comments, kyra, kerry, and surfdub!
  46. PS. Royal Copenhagen was in financial trouble in the 1960's when Nils Thorsson (then Artistic Director) developed the Tenera and Baca lines (both with a modern and colourful look) which became very po...
  47. The bowl is from a line called Tenera which was produced from the 1960's. You're right - it is so nice and colourful (and that's why these things are still very popular).!
  48. Thanks, racer4four (and Woman34)!
