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)

  1. Great collection! I can see lots of cats! :-) Welcome to CW & look forward to seeing more. I joined 5 years ago & seeing other folks collections was, & continues to be both enjoyable & inspiring.
  2. Super cool collection of mannequins, & wishing you all the best for your renovation & move! You may find that after unpacking everything & arranging it all in the new house will give you a different p...
  3. Many thanks, Shuzbut...yeah, it seems like forever, the rough estimate is 25 years or so. Hell, even two years ago seems like forever now, doesn't it?
  4. Champion piece of Welz! The three ball foot design is classic Welz, weird & wonderful at its best. This is a great find, especially at a good price!
  5. Great find, Bernard! I'm all good with buying glass with a few issues if the price is right. Don't we all have a few issues, especially as the years go by!
  6. Many thanks, kivatinitz!
  7. Totally magical! The decor reminds me of raindrops streaming down a window...captured forever in glass. What a wonderful gift!
  8. I'm thinking Harrach as well. It's a really interesting & unusual piece, & would love to see a few more images from different angles if possible...
  9. Thanks so much, Lori!
  10. Thanks also, Glenn12345, glad you're enjoying it!
  11. Many thanks, Karen! :-)
  12. Much appreciated, Michelle! Many years ago I found my first example of this type of vase, in Peloton glass, but missing its two baskets. Still living in hope of finding replacements...as the song goe...
  13. Thanks also, Mary! Lily of the valley sounds like a perfect match for this vase, & perhaps violets, too. Both very popular flowers in the era this piece was made.
  14. Thanks so much, Penny!
  15. Much appreciated, Bernard. Yes, it was a nervous wait for sure. Glad it ended well!
  16. Many thanks, Scott, & wishing you a Happy New Year, too!
  17. This is wonderful, Peggy! In particular, I'm enjoying the way that fabulous finial refers back to the painted decoration...special indeed!
  18. Wow! Fancy, fabulous, fantastic! These pieces all have a magical touch...something special to lift us into another realm, which is just what we need!

  20. Thanks so much, Karen! I love putting together "mini mes" in my collection... :-)
  21. Well done, Penny, this is totally fabulous! The top rim is just amazing! Sometimes, you can just get lucky...I've managed it myself a few times...you almost feel like it's not worth bidding, but it...

  31. This is such a special piece of Victorian art glass at its most flamboyant! What a shame it was damaged in transit, but it still displays beautifully. I feel that John Walsh Walsh is most likely the...

  34. Many thanks, vintagelamp!

  37. Thanks so much, Michelle, & wishing you all the best for the New Year as well! So glad that you've enjoyed my posts, too!
  38. Many thanks, Lori! Back when I had cats in my life, I soon learned that I couldn't have a Christmas tree anymore...so for over 20 years or so, it was a treeless festive season in my house!
  39. Thanks also, Pascale! Merry Christmas to you, too!
  40. As much as I love cats, I think I have to agree, Patricia! I was thinking of maybe getting a cat now I'm settled, but after some sad experiences in the past, I don't think I can go there again. Also, ...
