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

  1. Thank you most kindly, vintagelamp, & I heartily agree with your sentiments!
  2. Thanks so much vintagelamp, & look forward to seeing it!
  3. Thanks so much, vintagelamp!
  4. Hi SunshineGlass, no I don't use Facebook or any social media. I'm the shy & retiring type! And I don't wish to participate in something which has such a deleterious effect on society & democracy... ...
  5. It's my pleasure, valentino97, so glad you're enjoying it!
  6. Many thanks, valentino97! Prince was/is amazing - another great artist we sadly lost in that horrible year 2016...
  7. PhilDMorris, thanks so much & glad you're enjoying it! For sure, these palm trees are magical, & I'm keen to find more...
  8. Marty, thanks also & ditto the above!
  9. Many thanks, Alan, & sorry for the extremely late reply. I believe that I had rather a lot going on this time three years ago...
  10. Wonderful, Exciting, Lovely, Zesty!
  11. Many thanks, Vintagefran!
  12. larksel, from what I've seen in my searches for this, it seems to be an importer, & that this particular item was probably made in Taiwan. It would have had a sticker underneath originally. There seem...
  13. Many thanks, Vintagefran, most kind of you, & glad it brought a smile!
  14. I've had a look at Silvestri, & it's certainly a possibility, I see that they've done some iridescent pieces in various styles. For years, I've tried to be up to date & aware of modern glass & giftw...
  15. Michelle, many thanks for the links, & it looks like you've got the same vase in a different colour!
  16. welzebub, the ground is a light amethyst. It does look rather greyish here but in person it is more mauve/purple. The dull iridescent surface decor makes it difficult to capture in a photo.
  17. Many thanks for the link, larksel, & it definitely does look quite similar to this vase.
  18. Never seen a basket in this shape with applied flowers - definitely something special! Love the fact it has flowers front & back, & the handle is quite spectacular as well...
  19. Very unusual example of applied decoration - it's fantastic!
  20. Wow! Absolutely stunning!
  21. Thanks so much, Alan - & very well put. I also saw him in concert twice & he was brilliant. An artist much admired by creative & stylish people! Loved the Helen Green animated artwork - in my previou...
  22. Cheers, iggy! Great lyrics from "All the Madmen"..."The Man Who Sold The World" is one of my favourite albums...mind - blowing stuff that has got me through some tough times. Listened to it a lot two ...
  23. Many thanks, Thomas!
  24. Thanks so much, Vynil33rpm!
  25. Many thanks renedijkstra, I was happy with this find from a Salvos store for a reasonable price. It was rather funny considering I'd sold all my other Murano figures, but this one is a keeper, like it...
  26. Thanks also, antiquerose - pink glass is something special...
  27. Sorry for the extremely late reply, Vintagefran (I think I was super busy with my last exhibition when I posted this) - many thanks!
  28. Many thanks Thomas, your kind thoughts are much appreciated! For sure this has been the worst summer that I've known in my 46 years. Hotter, drier, & windier than ever before. We've already had dry s...
  29. Thanks also for your memories, renedijkstra, yes, must have been Serious Moonlight. I saw him in 1987 on the Glass Spider tour & in 2004 Reality tour, both at Sydney Entertainment Centre.
  30. Thanks also, Watchsearcher!
  31. Nice! Could be an apprentice piece - as cabinet makers had to make scaled down versions of furniture to prove their skills...
  32. These are not by Fenton - they are Victorian art glass, either English or Bohemian origin. Fenton never made any pieces with applied decoration like these acanthus leaves.
  33. Many thanks, Thomas, much appreciated!
  34. I'm bumping this up as the tooled rim reminds me of the one on inky's recently posted Early Loetz vase - maybe this oddity is their work as well..?
  35. So fabulous! This appeals to me on so many levels - the ribbing, the colour, the ragged rim...even that patchy pontil mark...
  36. Wow, such a magical gift! Absolutely stunning!
  37. Thanks so much, WideAwake0247!
  38. Such a great post, Brunswick! Thoughtful sentiments & observations on a legendary & unique artist. The Rolling Stone illustrations are a great touch! I've been a Bowie fan since 1983, & was fortunate...
  39. Absolutely! It's a real testament to the inventiveness of the designers/manufacturers that they could come up with so many variations. I have a few more of these vases & they're yet more different sha...
  40. Thanks so much, Ivonne, & I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed this post. For sure, these vases are quite ubiquitous, & they were clearly exported to every corner of the world. They can be expensive, ...
  41. Sombre yet elegant...
  42. Wow, that is absolutely stunning! Perfect way to start the year with something extra special...
  43. Thanks also, kyratango, that is so nice of you to say!
  44. Many thanks, welzebub, & yes, that's so true, have collected so many different things throughout my life, even with glass it's been all over the place, though trying to reign it in to a few main areas...
  45. My pleasure! My dear father's first language wasn't English either (he had numerous languages) but he never failed to express his feelings beautifully. So however you say it, & wherever you're from, t...
  46. It's totally stunning, & my very random guess is 1920s - 30s era... it actually looks like several different styles rolled into one. Super glamorous, & you did a great job of restoring it!
  47. Thanks also, vetraio50, much appreciated!
  48. Elisabethan, thank you most kindly, your words are beautiful & touched me deeply...& your use of your second language is just fine by the way. :-)
  49. :-) If these had a flavour, I think it would be just like the Lindt chocolate balls in the pink packet - strawberries & cream...
  50. Its all good, & the best to you, too! :-)
