  14. Thanks All for the loves
  15. oops !! under 1. above meant to add so this shows mass production, or at lest many produced . Probable used the lost wax method .
  16. Difficult to date without some sort of makers / hallmarks marks . But the detective in me can make a few wild assumptions ..... 1. It is cast and not worker up by hand.( no pun meant!) can see thi...
  17. I gave my wife an antique one without heart for our betrothal . made in Australia by a maker with Irish liniage. Hand formed not cast . Love these

  25. I once bought a Gurschner piece of ebay and when it arrived broken realized it was a fake / copy made with cold cast bronze that was weighted internally with iron . it went back straight away ... not ...
  26. needless to say glad he did . I'd own this as I like things that are unusual.
  27. Wild.. the glass master should not have had those mushrooms ... :)
  28. Thank you Amber Rose all OK 'cept for.......... age related "normal" things ... they do look like big Emu eggs .. I'd hate to be the bird that laid them... or perhaps it was a dinosaur ???? :)
  29. Hi thanks Al. Pperhaps a 2 1/4 fitter ( gallery for us down here and UK ) is what this takes seeing the outer rim of the glass is 2 " so would need a slightly larger fitting .
  30. Love it . think I saw one like it recently.. why oh why did i not buy!!!
  31. Thank you Sean , I was feeling ill when I bid and could not retract. I did not need another Victorian bird vase ... but it was worth it and got the shades at the same sale .
  32. Eva Zeisel is a much underrated designer .At least here in OZ. She was responsible for the british post WW11 going Modern .Roy Midwinter copied her organic shapes and them the rest followed . she...

  44. I once bought a Kralik Barbers bottle from the US with a perfume label on it . Suppose the vases here and the bottle were attractive and cheap so a manufacturer could buy and fill with their product. ...
  45. Zowie I keep the glass and try to sell other stuff to keep me buying. House rule is that my habit has to be self supporting. Might be up your way as winter gets on to find some sun.
