This Post was for Deano - as I wanted to show him that there is nothing wrong with Chinese Glass. I have some in my early days too....
I found this years ago in the early days of starting to collect Art Glass . I loved the flower, I loved the color, and I wanted it. Bought it. Back then I thought it must be Murano -- but alas -- was not. It is Chinese Art Glass.
So what....I like it. It is STILL in my china Cabinet today. All that matters is I like what I have or I collect. That how each of us are. This piece sits in my China Cabinet right besides real Murano pieces. I like it enough to keep it.
My Chinese paperweight IS a nice example. There ARE collectors of just Chinese Art Glass items. The *ART* of a collecting is like any other item you buy. You bought it *because* you like it. Simple attitude.
Here is a link to Alan ( in the UK ) site for some examples Chinese Paperweights.
