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. So classy & fabulous! The bottles that Baccarat created for Guerlain are legendary indeed - what a super addition to your collection!
  2. Hey there herlingo, thanks so much for finding my post & your lovely comments. So glad that it has been both a source of nostalgia & inspiration. The photos were taken in 2018, & by the end of that ye...
  3. Absolutely stunning! And I understand your concerns about waiting so long for it arrive...I recently got a parcel that took over two months to arrive from the USA, & it was only a very small item, s...
  4. Many thanks, Michelle! Great to see you back on board! I agree, I speculated a bit about Welz on this one, due to that distinctive yellow. I thought Harrach too due to certain aspects of the design.....
  5. Welcome back, Michelle! Missed your posts & your positivity, & hope you are well. You've rewarded us with some really special glass, absolutely stunning pieces!
  6. Saw him live with David Bowie as a special guest on the 1987 Glass Spider Tour...also, his father Owen Frampton was an inspiring art teacher who taught Bowie in high school in the early 1960s...
  7. If you sell this item, make sure to pack it in a paper thin envelope with no bubble wrap... :-)
  8. Super find, Alan! So stylish & those legs definitely add that extra touch of elegance.
  9. All the best to you Cameoboy, & as I'm sure you'd know, one's collection can be such a therapeutic consolation through all kinds of challenging times. Surrounding oneself with beautiful things is a mo...
  10. Many thanks Scott!
  11. Thanks so much, Karen - yes, it is exquisitely proportioned, & so tactile. A real class act!
  12. Many thanks, Kevin! Yes, I have looked at a few of those recently to confirm my thoughts about this vase, plus some other research in books & online. My previous example of Webb's Bronze glass was a...
  13. Many thanks, Ms.CrystalShip! I too am amazed by how many items like this have survived over the years. And I just love sharing my collection with other folks who enjoy it!
  14. :-) Thanks so much, my dear friend... Your 70s home vibes could be rather appropriate for a spaced - out piece like this...
  15. That is just super cool...
  16. Thanks also, Bill! Yes, I'd drop in every now & then to check it out...luckily, it was in a very crowded cabinet, in the most cluttered shop you could ever imagine...so it was pretty well hidden. Ther...
  17. Many thanks Scott - & they're my favourites, too! I really like how they catch the light, due to the spherical form. Like the way marbles shine...
  18. Many thanks, Bambus1920 - I agree, Kralik cherries are definitely the most "delicious" - looking ones...the iridescence just adds that extra touch!
  19. They make a great pair! The scalloped base on the white - wigged one is unusual. Have seen many variants on these figures over the years but have not seen that style of base before.
  20. Much appreciated, Scott...thought you'd enjoy it!
  21. Many thanks, Patricia - that is an excellent observation & I quite agree...good design always works on multiple levels!
  22. My pleasure, Scott...just posted it - enjoy!
  23. Just got a smaller vase like this for myself, in the same unusual colour scheme & with an applied flower instead of acorns. It glows orange under UV light. The top has a square form with a fine crimp...
  24. Many thanks for the closer look at this vase, Bill...it's a really nice piece of studio glass, & I'm sorry I can't help with identifying the artist who made it. The shape & swirling, marbled colours s...
  25. So good to get back to the flea market! The embroidered tea towel for "Glass" is wonderful...I do enjoy vintage linen pieces like that, inherited some from my mother & if I see interesting ones in op ...
  26. I actually don't know much about the costs involved in restoration, having not had any done yet...it's going to be an experiment I suppose...I don't mind getting an item with some issues if the price ...
  27. Many thanks, Patricia! I love the organic forms of Art Nouveau...so evocative of nature in all its diversity...
  28. Many thanks Karen, & thanks also to all the folks who loved this post!
  29. Much appreciated, carmenisacat! That touch of envy really helps to keep a person hunting for treasure...
  30. Thanks also, foseatme!
  31. Thank you most kindly, Bill, & great to hear that your local flea markets are back in action. Hopefully that will happen soon here, too, although I'm happy enough that the antiques shops & op shops ar...
  32. Thanks also, shareurpassion!
  33. Thanks so much, Dave!
  34. Cheers, Karen - as you know, my taste runs from super pretty to super odd...all are welcome!
  35. Much appreciated, RichmondLori!
  36. Thanks also, glassiegirl!
  37. Many thanks, glassiegirl!
  38. Many thanks, Broochman! It's super cool to make a great find & also to support local shops as we recover!
  39. Thanks also, Karen, & nice to hear you've been "up the hill". Yes, it's getting busy up here again, that's for sure...good for the local businesses that have already been struggling since the fires & ...
  40. Many thanks, kwqd!
  41. Many thanks, Scott!
  42. I can see a definite Giacometti influence there!
  43. Totally delicious! Many thanks, Bambus1920!
  44. Many thanks, Ivonne! Yes, I love beautiful, useful things too...
  45. Thanks also, Karen!
  46. Many thanks, Jenni!
  47. Simply the result of relentless searching...iso or not, I'm always on the lookout...but certainly more focused on local finds at present. This one & the cobalt blue Welz spatter basket I posted yester...
  48. That's my kind of bus! All it needs is a rainbow flag... :-)
  49. So different to the typical Murano handkerchief vase (fazzoletto) in that they tend to be thin & airy, while these have a heavy, syrupy, viscous quality. The former escapes the medium & takes flight i...
  50. All good, & I shall amend it shortly!
