I'm a creative person who collects Bohemian & English art glass - mostly Victorian, as well as some early 20th C glass such as Art Nouveau & Tango. My favourite typeI'm a creative person who collects Bohemian & English art glass - mostly Victorian, as well as some early 20th C glass such as Art Nouveau & Tango. My favourite types of art glass are pieces with applied decoration, Peloton, trailed, threaded, spatter, iridescent, MOP satin, & rainbow glass. Favourite makers include Kralik, Welz, Harrach, Pallme Koenig, Rindskopf, Loetz, Thomas Webb, Stevens & Williams, & Richardsons. I enjoy glass that is unusual & fancy...like me. I also appreciate antique furniture, ceramics, & all manner of interesting old wares full of character & meaning. Love rock music as well, especially David Bowie. To live with style, elegance, & dignity is my aim, kindest regards, Marin. (Read more)

  2. These are adorable, & isn't it nice when you discover something new about a piece you've had for a while? Like finding it all over again!
  3. We've got some awesome op shops up here! Hope to see you on Sunday, Karen...& the WA button has just been found!
  4. Thanks also, dav2no1!
  5. Many thanks, Scott!
  6. Very nice - I didn't see this one, you must have got in nice & early!
  7. Much appreciated, Scott!
  8. Many thanks, Bernard! Yes, I pretty hyped about it, hoping that it would be as good as I'd thought on first glimpse...lucky for me it was even better!
  9. Thanks also, Scott!
  10. Many thanks, kivatinitz!
  11. This was a super buy, my guess is Kralik. It's a big unit for sure! And I love cleaning up a dirty piece to reveal it's beauty!
  12. Thanks also, dav2no1, yes it was pretty cool!
  13. Thanks so much, Vynil33rpm!
  14. Many thanks, Ivonne! I've encountered a few other pink vases with a UV reactive interior but usually they have a "custard" colour which gives it away. I'm still wondering about who made this vase, I'...
  15. Many thanks, Jenni!
  16. Thanks also, Kevin!
  17. Thanks so much, Ivonne! I agree, the satin finish complements the silver deposit decor perfectly. Nice to see you back on CW too!
  18. Many thanks, Ales! Yes, I've also wondered who made this glass - the vases are a simple, elegant shape, with a lovely smooth finish, & no pontil scars. The quality is excellent. I've been very fortun...
  19. Lovely colours on these, the glass looks quite thick, too. I've never seen any in Australia but I'll keep my eyes open for it!
  20. Thanks also, Pascale!
  21. Many thanks, Bernard, yes I was lucky that there were a couple of eBay sellers with job lots of lustre drops on offer, so I had plenty of choice.
  22. Super piece of art glass, this is such a lovely decor. I have a crimped fan vase in the same pattern. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/217414-victorian-striped-glass-vase-with-applie
  23. Love this colour...so exotic & glamorous!
  24. It will have to be a mixed/odd pair...I've always wanted a pink lustre vase so fingers crossed! :-)
  25. Thanks also, Penny - it was a lucky find & I'm thrilled with it!
  26. Thanks so much, Karen - I love a project!
  27. Many thanks, Scott - it was a fun project! I've wanted to get a lustre vase since I first saw one probably over 30 years ago, & this was a nice way to get one on a tight budget!
  28. Thanks so much, Karen!
  29. Much appreciated, Penny!
  30. Thanks also, kwqd!
  31. Many thanks, Scott!
  32. Thanks so much, Pascale!

  35. Much appreciated, Penny!
  36. Thanks so much, Karen! Yes, I can see the Missoni vibes that your vase is giving - it's cool!
  37. Many thanks, kivatinitz! Yes, I feel very lucky to have these!
  38. Thanks also, Penny - yes, the shape is exactly the same. Really interesting to see it in another nice decor!
  39. Thanks again, Ales, for this link, the shape is so distinctive. Looks cool with all kinds of decors...
  40. I love the base pattern too, Bernard, it's almost hypnotic! Sadly, the metal tops are so badly damaged that there is no longer any sign of a hallmark. Heaven knows what happened to them...but at leas...
  41. Much appreciated, Ales!
  42. Thanks also, dav2no1! Yes, I remember those coloured sand jars, too! Nice memory!
  43. Many thanks, Scott! I'm thrilled with these, just one would have been great but a pair is amazing...
  44. Hi Ales, thought you might be interested in this pair of vases I've just posted, I think they are another example of this decor in a different colour scheme. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/...
  45. This is a super vase, Kevin! You know, this post is bringing a vague memory of seeing a vase like this long ago in the big antiques centre that used to be down on South Dowling Street. Used to pop in...
  46. Many thanks, kivatinitz - that pair you have are so beautiful, it's a stunning decor. I'm pretty sure mine is Rindskopf, the shape looks right to be of their production. This lovely vase in Michelle...
  47. This is a nice vibrant decor, & like a mixture of spatter & Peloton glass.
  48. Super vase! The decor reminds me of leopard print...& the iridescent finish really adds an extra touch of glamour. Polydactyl kitty looks comfy enough, it's funny how when you set up a spot for a cat...
  49. This is very well decorated, & the red edges really set off the green patterned paper. We have "hacked" a fair few IKEA pieces over the years, but this one was left as is. My original one did not have...
  50. The shape of this is exactly like IKEA's Moppe mini chest of drawers, I know as I have one, purchased about 15 - 20 years ago. It's supplied unpainted but of course can be decorated as one wishes.
