  1. I love the bust. It’s probably got paint and glue on it because it’s been kept in a garage or workshop! I’m amazed how often I have found an interesting piece of glass and it’s got sprays of paint on.
  2. Thanks Tallcakes, just when I think I have it solved! Mine does look like the Crystal D'Arques one, but mine only has the base frosted.
  3. I have found one on ebay described as Royal Crystal Glass Figurine, Labrador Retriever and Pups. I am trying to find out more about Royal Crystal!
  4. Thank you Malkey and Keramikos.
  5. Lovely brooches. I think my favourite is the Christmas Tree!
  6. This vase is beautiful.
  7. I know it's a bit mundane, but I thought waste paper basket when I saw it!
  8. Has it got a base?
  9. Thanks Elizabethan, will check it out. I will have to see if I have the Antiques roadshow recorded. I usually do.
  10. Alan the bird is a European Robin. I live in the Uk, and it is our most loved garden bird. Very friendly, comes and watches while you do the garden
  11. The box is not mine I took pic off internet to illustrate that it's called vintage! I am aware of the American Robin. It always jarred with me that in Mary Poppins, set in London, that an American Rob...
  12. I've added a pic of the box.
  13. I am in the UK and it's the first time I've come across one of these. When I said it said vintage on the box, I meant the original name printed on the box was Vintage 5 Part Relish!
  14. Thanks Freiheit, it could well be 70's. It's 3" long 1.5" wide.
  15. I know what you mean about having to much! It’s very hard to let go though.
  16. I have been trawling through The Glass Trinkets website, and I think this set may be by Bagley Glass. There is only a picture of a candlestick on the site, but it looks to be identical to these candle...
  17. I thought I'd solved these dishes, as I found a pomander recently with the same design of these dishes, with a label on the bottom. it said "Ye Olde Ceramic Pomander - Aidees of Torquay - Bovey Tracey...
  18. No I havn’t! I have seen glass bowls (fruit bowls) in the same pattern, but this one has escaped me so far.
  19. Thanks Racer4Racer, I discovered a few of this set on the English Glass Trinket Sets, and no-one seems to be able to identify this pattern.
  20. The colour is wonderful. I don’t know how you managed to carry it home! I struggled to carry my sundae dishes and trinket set 200 yards to the car!
  21. It’s beautiful.
  22. Looks like it would glow well under UV light!
  23. I would think Royal Worcester would mark their vases. I love the painting on this vase though.
  24. Thanks Tallcakes, I thought the colour was amethyst at first, but when the sun went in it looked more orange or Amber!
  25. I've put my tea box on so that you can compare. Mine is much smaller and not such an interesting shape!
  26. Thank you for all the loves for these pretty Vaseline glass dishes. I've finally got round to unpacking the rest of the set, so have put some different pictures showing them all.
  27. It could be a souvenir box which came with tea in, or something like that. I have a wooden rectangular box at home somewhere, which looks similar, which hubby brought home to me from China. I think my...
  28. Pickfords are a well known removal firm in the UK, and I’m pretty sure they have moved us more than once! I seem to picture their lorries as being dark blue though!
  29. Thanks Tallcakes, I missed that!
  30. Thanks Keramikos, for that info. I did think it would be older, but seller was adamant that it would have been bought new for a wedding present! She didn’t pick up that the dishes were uranium glass e...
  31. Is it porcelain or earthenware, ie can you see the light through it? Chines porcelain often has a bluish tinge to it, whereas English tends to be whiter - which this bowl looks. It’s very pretty.
  32. The registration number 1920 dates it to 1884, though there is also a lozenge registration mark, which was replaced by the registration number in 1884, so I think that dates it to 1884!
  33. I think the flowers are forget-me-nots and maybe lily of the valleys! I’m not sure about mark, but it does look like a smiley face!
  34. I have 2 0f this picture! By Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone, I brought the first picture new in the early 1980's, and I'm pretty sure it cost me £25 then (probably a weeks wages then!) but I've alwa...
  35. No news yet Eileen, thanks for that.
  36. Thank you for looking Ms.Crystalship. It’s very frustrating thinking it should be easy to find info on something, and not finding a thing!
  37. I think in the early 20th century, people wouldn't bat an eyelid at taxidermy! It's not something I like though!
  38. It’s very interesting, and I can see why you may have doubts whether it’s new or not! It looks like it should be old, and it may be, but the quality doesn’t look very good. I really don’t know anythin...
  39. It looks a bit like the Holly Hobby dolls!
  40. I think this dates around 1881 to 1902, and the pattern is Mona. Try looking Doulton Burslem up, and Mona.
  41. Beautiful, and the bird is a Goldfinch, if you are interested!
  42. It could be earlier than the mid 1800? The saucer is deep. It’s an unusual shape for a tea bowl. I’ll have to check some of my books.
  43. It looks like Miseltoe to me! Lovely brooch.
  44. Thank you for the loves for this bowl. I think it's lovely too!
  45. Thank you Ms.CrystalShip. Can you tell me the best way to remove the verdigris?
  46. I used to walk down the Bayswater Road looking at the paintings! There were loads of artists there selling paintings, and I guess a lot were amateurs. I like this painting, it looks very 70's!
  47. If you look up the initials they come up with Sabrina Rowan Hamilton, but her painting don't look a bit like this! I think they are lovely, and remind me of the sort of paintings used on Greetings car...
  48. Beautiful vase and great pics.
  49. Thanks Phil, I love this bowl too, though still trying to find the origins. I didn’t fail with the sofa either, I spotted a nice sofa and chair which daughter in law went to buy the next day!
  50. Love them both, but especially the glass lion.
