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. Live proud, stay positive, & find beauty everywhere - cheers, Marin. (Read more)

  1. Thanks also, TreasureTex!
  2. Many thanks, glassiegirl!
  3. This is so fabulous & definitely worth saving for posterity! I really love this type of Victorian art glass - it's pure fantasy. Well, I have several palm trees in my collection - three of which I a...
  4. This cat had real purr - sonality! :-)
  5. Absolutely stunning!
  6. Thanks so much, inky! Yes, the shape really drew me to them, as I love floriform type glass.
  7. Many thanks, Ivonne!
  8. Absolutely gorgeous! Early Loetz is so special...
  9. What a fantastic bargain, & lucky for you to benefit from the seller's lack of discernment in matters of taste! I have a couple of these baskets myself, & they are just wonderful...
  10. I've had a fair bit of good fortune using broad searches over the years, in fact I think one of my other brown Peloton items was found just looking for something like "art glass basket". I'm so happy ...
  11. Thanks so much inky - & Kralik sounds good!
  12. Wow, what a great score! Congratulations on winning a fine example of this rare decor - & it couldn't have gone to more deserving collector!
  13. Many thanks, racer! Yes, I had some "vibes" that I'd have a find, & there it was!
  14. Thanks also, vetraio50! It certainly has the wow factor - so petite & dainty, yet with a presence far beyond it's diminutive size...
  15. Thanks so much for your lovely compliments, Michelle! I agree, the Clichy canes are really something else...the colours are vibrant, yet elegant. A class act!
  16. Many thanks, Mrstyndall!
  17. Yes, so true, inky...it happened when it was meant to happen. Funnily enough we'd tried & failed to buy a house across the road from this one in late 2016. The market was crazy here at the time, & ou...
  18. Thanks so much, kyratango! It's a dream for me, too...after a long, difficult search & so much upheaval, it's paradise found...
  19. Many thanks, inky!
  20. Racer, I know, it's so amazing that this piece has endured in perfect condition. I have two other hanging baskets on stands, as well as a couple of stands missing baskets (plus one basket missing a st...
  21. Many thanks, Ivonne! This is a very new garden bed, we made it only in the last 2 months & some of the plants went in the last few days...so it's still a work in progress. Originally it was just gra...
  22. What a darkly glamorous vase! So impressive, full of texture & drama - a truly stunning addition to your collection - congratulations!
  23. This won't help, but I once owned a very similar vase in a streaky pale pink decor.
  24. This is really nice - great find! I think maybe it's a bit earlier -perhaps 1880s - 1900? I have a large vase in the same bright pink spatter: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/225882-vict...
  25. valentino97 - my feelings exactly! I love the randomness & oddity of small museums...they tend to reflect the very particular enthusiasms of the folks who run them (this one is all managed by voluntee...
  26. Thanks also, vetraio5o - thankfully no bush fire dramas today, & luckily I am not too close to the National Park! But I certainly stayed home & worked in my studio for most of the day as it was so unp...
  27. Many thanks, Newfld!
  28. Many thanks, Marty! Yes, these sorts of places are far more engaging than slick, modern institutions where the collections have been rendered sanitised & "interactive" for today's short attention span...
  29. Many thanks, vetraio50! Thought you'd enjoy it...
  30. valentino97 - that sounds like a beautiful, dignified plan indeed. As for me, I'll become at one with my garden when the time comes. I dare say that a pharoah - style burial would be rather difficult ...
  31. Many thanks, renedijkstra, I agree, not really my usual area of glass but something a bit different can be fun.
  32. These are super cool & I'd gladly wear them as I do have some French cuff shirts! Loved all things ancient Egyptian since I was a kid, in fact when I was about 10 I decided that I wanted to be mummifi...
  33. Congratulations!
  34. Many thanks, renedijkstra, & hope you can find one too!
  35. So many lovelies for my wish list! It's a cute shape in any decor...
  36. Many thanks for posting, it's wonderful. Great to see this familiar piece in a different colour. It's a big, bold example of Victorian art glass, & how amazing that it's survived all these years in su...
  37. And thanks for sharing this little gem, it has made my day. Always a pleasure to see a fine piece of glass like this...
  38. Well, it sounds like you got a great deal there, ccronk78. I'm sorry to say that I can't give valuations on items, it's not really what we do here on CW. Also, if you are in a different country then ...
  39. All I can say is that it is MAGICAL & that I absolutely adore it! Wish I'd found it in whatever lucky op shop that you did... :-) Okay, as someone with a fair bit of rainbow glass in my collection, I...
  40. Fabulous piece - bold, bright, & festive!
  41. This piece was made in Scotland c. mid 20th C - see this article for some more information on the manufacturer - http://www.glassencyclopedia.com/Vasartglass.html Monart (not Monet) was an earlier v...
  42. Very nice find in a classic decor - it works so well with the shape. Also enjoyed the comparison with the Kralik vase in the fourth photo as it enabled me to ID a vase I've had for years in the same s...
  43. Many thanks, welzebub, I'm so pleased to have this piece & look forward to finding more examples of this charming shape. I wonder if there is a pink frit version, too?
  44. Those baskets can really creep up on you, can't they? I tried to quit them, but they won me all over again. This is a great piece & so interesting, too!
  45. Well, there is some Tango type glass with white trails - I have an orange vase with a white rim, so who knows what's possible? It's a very nice basket regardless of maker!
  46. Depose is the French term for "patent" or "patented", I believe.
  47. The silver foil patch is an intriguing detail - & it reminds me of a traditional repair technique used for Japanese ceramics - kintsugi (golden joinery). Although this is not a repair, there seems to ...
  48. Yes, it was...& ironically I am only looking at items on eBay AU at the moment due to the international exchange rates being so bad for the Australian dollar. Also, we get now get charged 10% tax on a...
  49. Fantastic! You know how I adore pink Tango glass...& well done on scoring this gorgeous piece!
  50. Stunning!
