    I can't resist to post another item by E.T.Drost.Before she became a glass designer,she had designed china figurines.And this figural candle holder is a stage between china and glass in her work.
    It is one of the series of glass candle holders representing variety of folk characters from different countries.
    Thnks for looking!

      Can you tell us more about the other designs ?

      Is this a Polish costume ???
    3. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      This candle stick is commonly called "Karolinka",what associates with Silesia region in south of Poland.There's also a Mexican girl http://retro-bibelot.pl/pl/p/MIODOWY-SWIECZNIK-FIGURALNY-MEKSYKANKA/960

      Fantastic & at first I thought it was a odd shape bottle. Even better it still having a use.

      Peggy,don't her hands on her hips remind you the blue vase?
    13. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 6 years ago
      What a beautiful piece!
    14. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      Thanks Virginia:)
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Yes, Ivonne.....just the same angle! We'd say the figurine is standing 'arms akimbo'.
      Also may I ask why you post some of your vases in glassware? I'd think they were Art Glass. This is why I'm late to your posts....I don't look at glassware regularly. Peggy
    16. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      Peggy,I have sometimes problem with categorizing wether the items are art if they are produced en masse and they are pressed glass.In this case I could put them in art glass too as they were designed by artists.Next time I will pay more attention to categories .
    17. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Ivonne, my take on it is that if they're the work of a known designer it's Art Glass. I do understand your reservations, though, when it comes to pressed glass. A simple process yes, but some designers do wonders with it.....as you know!
    18. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      Peggy,thank you.I'll follow your point and I'll be more consistent in it :)
    19. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      Thanks AB for the love:)
