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. Many thanks, Karen my friend!
  2. Thanks so much, Scott, so kind of you to say so! Isn't glass just such a perfect medium for rendering flowers?
  3. Thanks also, Michelle...yes, I've been pretty obsessed with Richardson tulips for a while now...it's taken a while to gather all these, but definitely worth the effort. I meant to do a photo shoot wit...
  4. Cheers Marty, great to hear from you! Snow is forecast for tomorrow, so keep close to that fire/heater...I know I will! Hopefully my plants will manage okay...
  5. Much appreciated, Pascale!
  6. Thanks so much, Ms.CrystalShip! That's a Queen Of The Night tulip in picture 4. A very dark purple that is almost black.
  7. Thanks also, Penny! Yes, I agree, it's difficult to choose...love them all!
  8. Many thanks, Kevin!
  9. Thanks also, shareurpassion!
  10. Much appreciated, Penny!
  11. Thanks also, Karen!
  12. Cheers, Kevin! :-)
  13. Thanks so much, Michelle - & yes, Penny is an absolute star!
  14. Many thanks, Jenni!
  15. Amazing how funky those Victorian folks were - organic, artisan, & kinda gothic, too!
  16. Green sure is good! Much appreciated, Penny!
  17. Many thanks, Bambus1920 - interesting concept, too!
  18. This is such a pretty decor, & well done on finding a another fine example. Your purely pink shelf sounds fabulous!
  19. Thanks also, Bambus1920!
  20. Many thanks, Patricia!
  21. Simply stunning! Looks great with the mauve ageratum - & I love how this unique vase creates an impressive mounded up effect with flowers...
  22. Made by Sylvac, a company that made a wide range of animal figurines. The hand painted details are unexpected - not seen on any Sylvac that I've seen, which suggests they may have been added later?
  23. Superb piece - absolutely stunning! I adore square glass, it's rarely seen & so wonderful - well done on a very special find! Just goes to show that "modern" is a state of mind rather than a particula...
  24. I'm enjoying the Art Nouveau vibes in this, plus a different & elegant spin on the classic pulled feather decor (one of the oldest glass patterns, it goes back to antiquity - Egypt, Rome, etc)...
  25. I am in so awe of your impeccably researched & curated collection, Peggy, it is truly outstanding!
  26. Thanks so much, Mary! Yes, the collecting bug bit early for me, & glass buttons were my "gateway drug" for art glass, LOL!
  27. Thanks so much, Mary, glad that you enjoy them! Glass buttons are fun to collect, & useful too... great to use on a special piece of clothing. The waistcoat buttons are particular favourites of mine, ...
  28. Thanks also, Karen...yes, it's a very attractive piece, was thrilled when I unwrapped it...way better than the photos suggested, which is always good!
  29. Many thanks, Michelle - that is so kind of you to say so! I looked through a huge amount of images of Rindskopf vases & couldn't find a shape like it...even though the decor seemed like one of theirs...
  30. Thanks also, glassiegirl & TOD for the info...
  31. Many thanks, Scott!
  32. Karen - you know me too well, LOL! I'd always rather liked this shape as made by Fenton for their "wheat vase" version, which came in a multitude of colours & decors...& thus was similarly interested...
  33. Thanks also, Michelle - & I'll be in touch shortly. I don't see much Legras glass in Australia, so this was a fortunate find indeed!
  34. Many thanks for the info, glassiegirl!
  35. Many thanks, Bambus1920! Yes, was thinking about a collar for it myself - could be a simple & elegant solution...
  36. The orange ones actually look like orange peel!
  37. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/283283-victorian-vaseline-opalescent-uranium-gl
  38. This one of mine has some similar design aspects - I think it might be by Harrach. I really like the pink top on yours, & the square shape of it as well!
  39. Thanks also, Karen! :-) It is rather nice when you can enjoy a piece of glass from an unexpected aspect - not all pieces have such a pleasing "bottom" (LOL)
  40. That's an interesting idea for sure, AnythingObscure! I did neglect to mention the size of this item - it is 10 cm across the base & only just over 3 cm tall, so it's quite small (looks bigger in my ...
  41. Many thanks, Kevin!
  42. Many thanks Elisabethan!
  43. Totally agree, Scott - I'm always on the lookout for interesting glass - the search neer ends, & boy, does it help add a touch of fun to life! If my fun pursuits can add some enjoyment to other folks...
  44. Thanks so much, Scott! Yes, it certainly has much in common with some other pieces I have in this decor in better known Welz shapes. I really enjoy the small, but interesting shape of this one...seem...
  45. Karen, it's a super hot pink in some areas...& yes, the shape is rather unusual, too. Found it in Blackheath...love my local finds... :-)
  46. Many thanks for your thoughts, Wow22...& it will definitely be interesting to find out some more about it...
  47. Feeling for you during the fires - know exactly what you're going through as we had just the same situation in late 2019 - early 2020 - the smoke & orange skies...& the fear of what may happen next......
  48. Thanks again, my friend! :-)
  49. Many thanks, my friend! Yes, it was good to get those saphirets at last...& as for the eyes...no offense taken at all! They are right up my alley! I've added a pic of me wearing some cuff links - t...
  50. Many thanks, Jenni! I too love saphirets, & hope to find more examples of this magical art glass "stone", & hopefully at reasonable prices, though! It is also difficult to capture the true beauty of...
