  1. Many thanks, Michelleb007!
  2. Thanks so much, sklo42! Indeed, it's been the most wonderful serendipity obtaining this piece...
  3. Many thanks MALKEY...much appreciated. It's a been a special day today...& what better way to mark it than with some special glass. As summer burns itself out, & the shadows begin to fall longer, I'm...
  4. Thanks also, iggy. I have several other Bowie programs, & they are fairly hard to find. I guess people tend to hang onto them, like this one.
  5. Thanks so much, Justanovice!
  6. That is such a poetic comment, ho2cultcha! Hollow hills & silent hedges send me somewhere rather magical. However, one minor matter must be resolved..."she" is not my pronoun... :-)
  7. Many thanks, Sinnomore!
  8. These are beautiful, reminds me of pieris & kalmia which I have in my new garden. I wonder if these are available to buy in Australia?
  9. Yes, I'm doing well at last, thanks so much for asking! Have just found out that I'm a finalist in a prestigious art prize today so thrilled about that... Hope the New Year brings you many lovely fin...
  10. Thanks so much, Bambus1920!
  11. This is sweet...I had one of these with coralene flowers but sold it a few years back. You don't see them around often...
  12. Thank you most kindly, PhilDMorris!
  13. Many thanks, MALKEY!
  14. Nymphea, a waterlily, the eternal lotus who rises above the mud & corruption of earthly existence. I can understand why she is an inspiration to you... And of course, what is a little dust between fr...
  15. This is absolutely stunning in every respect - size, shape, colours, & that fabulous snowflake crimp!
  16. Truly special & absolutely stunning!
  17. This is a really neat & unusual spatter - a bit more geometrical than the average type. Almost a hybrid of spatter & peloton?
  18. So glad that my images have been of help for your research! The vases you found & documented are wonderful, what a shame they were too expensive - isn't that annoying? I have often wondered if some de...
  19. Thanks also, Vintagefran...I hope that you can find some peloton of your own, it really is a special type of glass & quite addictive to collect (although difficult to find).
  20. Many thanks, racer!
  21. Yummy! Gotta love those rainbows! :-)
  22. Many thanks, racer - yes, it's a wonderful paradox, isn't it!
  23. Many thanks, Bambus1920! I agree, Peloton glass definitely has a confectionery style about it - the pastel type has always reminded me of the sprinkles on cupcakes.
  24. Most elegant - the honeycomb spatter takes on a rather different quality when stretched out like that!
  25. Love it! The flowers are quite remarkable, not seen anything like them before!
  26. Likewise to you, vetraio50!
  27. Thanks so much, Ivonne!
  28. This a fabulous vase - love the intense contrast between the deep ruby & pale yellow! Here's one of mine that's "in the ballpark"...it has a lattice pattern rather than ribbing but do feel it's Krali...
  29. Thank you for your thoughts, Bambus1920. I had admired this vase for a while, it was quietly lingering among all kinds of other glass & it stood out from the crowd.
  30. Many thanks, billretirecoll, your pair of vases are lovely. I would agree on a Bohemian origin for them too. Happy New Year to you also!
  31. Thanks so much, antiquerose!
  32. Many thanks, MALKEY & all the very best to you too!
  33. Thank you most kindly, Bambus1920, PK sound like a good call!
  34. Such a charming & elegant display! Festive greetings to you!
  35. Thanks also, EJW-54 - & best wishes to you too!
  36. Thanks so much, Hunter!
  37. It's lovely - what a nice find! I like the two different coloured flowers, that makes it extra special! Yes, I agree, late Victorian, could be Bohemian, but English makers did similar pieces too. The ...
  38. Wow, this is the best Kralik floriform I've ever seen - congratulations!
  39. Many thanks Thomas, & returning the same to you!
  40. Thank you most kindly, billretirecoll! Glad you're enjoying my tree...I've been collecting ornaments for a while, I like mine on the quirky side, whether new or vintage. Wishing you all the best for t...
  41. It's my pleasure, Glasstronaut!
  42. Thanks so much, sklo42, so glad you're enjoying my glass!
  43. Cheers MALKEY! I'm pleased to share my world with you & all CW folks!
  44. Thank you most kindly, Thomas!
  45. Thanks so much, Sammyz!
  46. Could be Empoli type glass from Italy c.1960s?
  47. Many thanks for you kind thoughts, MALKEY!
  48. I have a pair in the well - known shape, but I've never seen this one before - nice score!
  49. Thanks so much, Justanovice!
  50. Thomas, thanks so much for what you bring to CW - the love of music is a passion for life that brings people of all kinds together, & uplifts us through the most challenging times. Your post shares p...
