I collect decanters, but I also collect a lot of other stuff, but mainly glass. Not sure exactly how many decanters I have, but hundreds. My parents had a number oI collect decanters, but I also collect a lot of other stuff, but mainly glass. Not sure exactly how many decanters I have, but hundreds. My parents had a number of decanters that he acquired from various places, they are modern and I never thought much to them. Then I visited my in-laws and they had antique ones which I thought were great but also thought they must be really expensive. If you are a careful buyer they are not expensive at all and there are lots of bargains to be had, especially as they are so unfashionable. If you have to collect something pick something no one else wants. My other piece of advise that relates to where I went wrong, pick something smaller than decanters. I now have a non-commercial web-site about antique decanters and glass where I am trying to put up information in a more systematic way.

  1. We had some chickens in the garden once, and when you live with you find out they are all individuals with their own little personality traits. I still eat chicken but you need to respect what you are...
  2. I bought one of these in the early 90s for £7, but my wife hated it so I sold it for £15. Regrets.
  3. Not a mistake, he though John Walsh was too boring so spiced it up to John Walsh Walsh. Crazy but true.
  4. I totally agree, it's a tea caddy circa 1820s. The use of step cutting like this really only lasted a short period so we can be quite tight on the date I have given. It might be Irish but there is no...
  5. Designed in May 1968 by Geoffrey Baxter, pattern number 9677, colour Willow. Don't take sticker off if it looks original. Be warned there are copies out their, some don't have pontil marks, so if it...
  6. It looks like, Ruskin, or Linthorp or Bretby, but it is not marked and they usually were. Sorry that is not helpful. The Belgian pottery I have has a more matt finish.
  7. Thanks jscotto, it is lovely. It is a pity I bought it in the antiques market in tourist trap land in Paris, so I probably paid Franz Bergman money for it. My wife loves it and that is the main thin...
  8. That is very sad to see happen to a original piece of art. At least it has a home now.
  9. I have called the Norwegian police about the sugar.
  10. I mean right.
  11. There is a Belgian pottery that did similar work with that style of marking on the bottom. Sorry but I can't remember what they are called. I particularly like the one on the left.
  12. Fantastic quality piece a pity the stopper is gone. If this were a UK piece the gilding technique kind of says it's pre-1890s. The handle application technique says it is post 1850. To me the gener...
  13. Really really nice. I think they layer on the silver using an electroplating technique and then enhance it afterwards. Technically very difficult and time consuming to do.
  14. Never heard of them either, but I wouldn't be surprised is the stopper isn't original, as Holmgaard do something similar and their stoppers don't push all the way in too. The thing is, cork the stopp...
  15. Decanters are cheap nowadays as they are practically dead as a useful item. People just keep their booze in the original bottle. Good news if you want to collect them as most people selling on ebay c...
  16. Love it. Completely bonkers. I think it's Bimini too, but I haven't seen it with girls on top of the stopper before.
  17. Want. Want badly.
  18. You can't beat a bit of obsessional behaviour.
  19. The 25th of Foot didn't become the Kings Own Borderers until 1805 and became the Kings Own Scottish Borderers in 1887. So there is a definite time slot. Charles Jennens buttons post 1860 had a fleur ...
  20. Thanks for that.
  21. Not because I have no hair, but I think this is a wig stand.
  22. This is very typically Irish period glass as it went into the final phase with heavy glass cutting. Just to give me another hint about its origin, I bought it from Ireland. I have also added a pic...
  23. Looks German Successionist. The motifs in the corners of the dial are typical of that movement. Think Germanic art nouveau. If there are no markings on the workings, that is more likely as the worki...
  24. Your watch looks 1950s-60s. If you look at the Eberhard history web page you can see they used that style of logo from 1935-70. http://www.eberhard-co-watches.ch/the-history/
  25. Really nice collection. One of your marrow spoons looks suspiciously like a tax dodger. When items went off to be marked, it would distort the handles out shape so the silver smith would need to rehe...
  26. This used to be the motto for Cripple Cock cider. I know I had a big poster with this on from the 80s. You may want to investigate this guy though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Coates_%...
  27. You can get polishing kits on eBay, but it's a laborious process to re-polish the inside a of vase. You can get someone to do it, but it costs about £20 with VAT. The answer is, use it. Whitefriars...
  28. This is copying the shape of Georgian Spirit bottles in the period 1810-30. You can see some in my previous posts: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/87396-georgian-barrel-shaped-spirit-bottl...
  29. I would check the bottom of the one on the right very carefully against the light, as Waterford marks are Generally not very big and can be quite faint. Also as a claret jug make sure there are no c...
  30. I love how the driver is totally exposed to not just the weather but anything that anyone might care to fire at him.
  31. I don't recognise this decanter, but looking at the stopper peg I don't think it is UK manufacturer. My guess would be Czech, as the design doesn't seem strong enough for it to be Scandinavian. I wil...
  32. I can give you a rough stylistic chronology of the early ones. The tapered decanters with a egg and dart meander and scale cut necks should be the earliest ones and are probably very early for decan...
  33. Ivonne, thank you so much, the only other decanter that I have that is vaguely this shape is definitely French, so I was obviously making too bit a resumption. And no matter what my wife thought, I t...
  34. Never seen this before, but really nice style. Feeling jealous.
  35. Wrong, this is a middle eastern piece. It is a water bottle for carrying on a camel. They made them over a long period of time. Could be a hundred years old, could be 250 years old. At auction they s...
  36. Do not strip the paint it is the original ebonising laquer, it is supposed to like this. It looks like a Christopher Dresser design and if you strip it you will be devaluing it. This is not art nouvea...
  37. The layout is similar to Scottish chests of the period.
  38. Jewels1900, I have loads of glass reference books and auction catalogues. If you post them I will try and ID them for you. I have 5 different kinds of wrythen dimpled decanter, but I know there are ...
  39. The one on the left is John Walsh Walsh. They called this patterning Opaline Brocade. They started doing this kind of work in the late 1890s.
  40. This might be John Walsh Walsh, as the only place I have seen this oyster type moulding in on their glass. It was clear glass, but John Walsh Walsh did also produce a lot of vaseline glass.
  41. I have loaded a picture from the book, The Glass of John Walsh Walsh 1850-1951, Eric Reynolds (ISBN 0-903685-74-4). and you can see it is the exact same pattern. I have both of the Whitefriars books ...
  42. No, I don't think these are Whitefriars, they are not in any of the books, and I haven't seen them in any museums with Whitefriars collections either. I have a couple more wrythen decanters with dimpl...
  43. The book Decanters 1760-1930 by David Leigh, lists a decanter from this service as being circa.1900. I have seen so many of them around I suspect they were churned out over at least 20 years, so I th...
  44. This might be Stuart Crystal. They did glass with thick green threads like this and I have one of their decanters with similar silver pouring lips.
  45. Really nice. If you plink it (carefully) with your finger nail, they have a nice metally ring to them.
  46. I daren't count my decanters, as then I can quite honestly say I don't know how many I have. I don't know anything about EAPG cake stands, but just for you I will load up the monster grandaddy of the...
  47. I know exactly how you feel. It breaks your heart when old beautiful things are needlessly broken, because some thinks glass is very strong.
  48. Your beer glass has the wrong date, it should be 1780-1800. That is the good news, the bad news is it looks like the foot has been trimmed. When they stopped folding the feet, they initially broug...
  49. I recognise that cross hatch pattern on matte etched background. This is an Irish bucket bowl glass from approximately 1820, probably made by Cork Glass Co. I have a decanter that would go with it. ...
  50. Wow, you hit the nail on the head. Amazing. Thank you so much, the 6th January 1800 seemed such a random date. I couldn't find anything in US history for that date. This is so cool. History is brill...
