    This was some of the finds at the Flea Market this Weekend, Glass! Some nice pieces! First was a Kosta Boda white frosted rainbow accent stripes vase, from 1960's Sweden. The vase is 8 1/2" tall, 6" at the widest point on the bottom, and has a 5 1/2" long cylindrical neck that's 2 3/8" dia. at the rim, it's marked with a clear sticker that says BODA and under that (c) KOSTA BODA AB SWEDEN, it's also etched marked on the bottom with numbers and letters that I can't make out. more info:Bertil Vallien Rainbow Vase Kosta Boda Sweden Model 48287
    Next is a Murano Glass Duck on a base, all one piece of glass, as if in flight. I have the info on this piece that I'll post in comments. The Duck, and base is 4 1/2" high, 4" wing tip to wing tip, 2 7/8" dia. on the round base, and 7 1/2" from bill to back leg. It's green to light green, front to back, and white on the wings, feet, and base. It is unmarked, but a known piece from the late 1960's. Here's more info from the same duck in pink: Archimede Seguso Duck

    This pink and white alabastro duck was made by Archimede Seguso, probably around 1960. It is 8.5" (21.6 cm) long and 6" (15.2 cm) tall. It has a red oval Archimede Seguso label on bottom.

    Next is a lavender paperweight, it has a dimpled crown, and star cut bottom, it's 2 3/4" dia. and 2" high, the bottom is etched marked with a crown cymbal, and is made in England, I'll post info later.
    It's a Royal Dolton Webb Corbett cut to clear paperweight!
    Fourth is a frosted Madonna made by Fostoria Glass, in the 1950's, it's 9 7/8" tall, 2 5/8" across the base, 2 7/8" at the widest, across her robes. The Madonna is standing, with her arms crossed at the top of her chest.
    Next is a blown green crackle glass Top Hat, Toothpick Holder, it's 2 1/2" tall, 4 3/4" long, and 3 1/2" wide, and 2 1/2" dia. across the top of the hat, but bottom of holder! I think this is U.S. glass but haven't found it yet.
    Sixed is a 1 3/4" dia. green glass octagon shaped paperweight/stand, that's 2" high. That's all I have on this one!
    Last is a clear glass curved rim center piece bowl, that's stained yellow on the outside of the bowl, and black on the underside of the rim, then it's painted with enamel small pink and white flowers, with green stems, on the top of the rim. It may be Czech/Bohemian, or other! It's 12 1/4" across the top, 2 1/2" high, and 3 3/4"dia. base.

    This is all for now, I'll post the other info later! :^D
    Thanks for looking, all comments, and any info welcome! :^)

    2. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 6 years ago
      Thank you for your comment KarenLR71, and nice to meet you! :^D It was one of those rare weekends at the Flea, and all at good buys! :^)
      Thanks for the love too,
      and fortapache,
      much appreciated! :^)

      Here's some info on the Royal Dolton "Webb Corbett" Paperweight:

      Thanks for looking! :^)

      Geez Bill, make us green! Great finds, you must be a champion shopper.
      I've always liked that understated design Vallien did for Boda, has quite a Japanese feel to me (as does lots of his pieces).
      The duck is fantastic!!
    5. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      Aaaaagh, how I dream of having a local flea market! The highlights for me are the bowl and the duck. I never thought I'd admire a duck......

      Jeepers - imagine all that glass and not one chip! Stupendous! I'll take the Madonna and oh yes, the vase.
    7. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 6 years ago
      Thanks Karen! I didn't set out to do that, but some lucky days happen! :^D I try to increase my chances by getting to the Flea Market by 6:00am, bring a light and dig deep! The Kosta Boda Vase was one of my first finds, and yes, that simple design, does give it a Japanese feel. :^)
      Yes the Duck, and this is for you too sklo42, I couldn't believe it, the colors make it look like carved jade, and I'm embarrassed to say the price I paid, sshhh $2.00, yep, two dollars! I said it, I tried to give the lady $3. by mistake, and she said oh no, just $2. I thanked her for the price, and bagged it up in a Royal Crown felt bag, and into my satchel, with a smile! :^)
      The Madonna was another good buy from one of the regular sellers, Gillian, and you're right, not a mark, on any of them, most just needed a cleaning, and like new! The way She looks when the sun shines through, almost Spiritual! () :^)

    9. Lisa-lighting Lisa-lighting, 6 years ago
      Yes, I too would not have imagined feeling the way I do about the duck. The movement, colour and that dear bill. Treasure! Thank you for sharing your finds.
