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. Sure! Wish you could, Peggy! :-)
  2. Super find, this is an absolute stunner! Very unusual in all aspects, even though I have a lot of glass with applied flowers, I've never seen one quite like this!
  3. Thanks also, kivatinitz!
  4. Many thanks, Scott!
  5. Thanks also, DejaVu2!
  6. Many thanks, Scott!
  7. Much appreciated, Peggy - I was looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this one! I knew when I saw it that it was something different that I was fairly sure I hadn't seen before. It was a great d...
  8. Thanks also, Scott! Hope you make some cool finds at the antiques fair! They're one of my favourite things too!
  9. Many thanks, kivatinitz - that's exactly how I feel about this vase, it's busy in a magical sort of way, classic Welz!
  10. Thanks also, Bernard! Yes, this one is fixed on permanently, cannot budge it!
  11. Many thanks, Craig, fantastic information, much appreciated! I was so pleased to have won this, it is a really super piece & I'm thrilled to have it in my collection. That it is Welz makes it even b...
  12. Thanks also, kivatinitz!
  13. Thanks so much, Scott!
  14. Update - have been looking at some examples of iridescent glass by Welz, & even though I couldn't find this pattern, I did find a vase in a different decor with the same collar. Now, it could be that ...
  15. This is very nice, have not seen this exact pattern before either, as you mentioned the base pattern is a bit unusual.
  16. Super cool find! I would have happily bought this one regardless of chips, as it's a decor I'm yet to get an example of. Sounds like a choice car boot sale!
  17. Thanks also, Scott!
  18. Hi Peggy, so great to hear from you & glad you like the vase! After I bought it I looked back on your posts because I recalled that you have a vase of this form (I really like the blue/pink decor, too...
  19. Many thanks, Peggy, that is definitely food for thought! I wonder who made it?
  20. Thanks also, Scott!
  21. Many thanks, dejaVu2!
  22. It's got a great shape, & that unusual amber colour works so well with the cameo style decoration - very classy specimen!
  23. Thanks also, Scott!
  24. Much appreciated, Peggy! Yes, I checked your posts to confirm that it was a Welz hexagon after spotting it. This style is so different to the miniature hexagons, the crimped rim is very impressive. It...
  25. Many thanks, DejaVu2!
  26. Fantastic collection of Welz Burmese! The tall vase with the swirled form & scissor cut top is something special indeed, that is a super shape & the Burmese decor makes it truly out of this world! ...
  27. Super cool, looks awesome lit up too!
  28. Gorgeous! That metallic green is spectacular, & the gilded mounting adds an extra touch of elegance!
  29. Cool find!
  30. Super collection!
  31. So true, kivatinitz!
  32. No worries! Yes, even though I don't have any more detail photos of this vase, I can recall that the top on this was ground just like yours, & that was another point of similarity. Yes, regrets, we'v...
  33. Have posted the new arrival!
  34. No worries, Bernard! I've just posted a photo of the shell vase I used to have...
  35. Wow, these are stunning! Definitely Victorian, very beautiful & such fine applied threading. The satin finish adds an extra level of style, too. I will say that I've not seen this exact decor before,...
  36. Great to hear from you Craig! Your input is much appreciated, & I will soon be posting an example of another vase sold as Peach Oil Spot (hopefully it arrives soon) in a different shape. As soon as I ...
  37. Thanks also, Scott! Yes, I'm super happy with it!
  38. Thanks Ales, the pink does have a similar look. I have the blue version of this vase, a pink one would be great, too!
  39. Another super piece of Peloton for your collection!
  40. Much appreciated, Peggy!
  41. The decor does look like the examples of "Rindskopf Cisele" pictured on your site...
  42. Much appreciated, Ales, & interesting to hear!
  43. Many thanks, Bernard! Yes, fits the bill nicely! I had to take the photos against a white background for a change to better show the colour.
  44. Been doing a bit more visual research & have seen some Durand art glass items with a similar golden iridescence. Also saw a photo of a Durand vase in the same shape but much bigger...so, perhaps anoth...
  45. Many thanks, Peggy!
  46. Much appreciated, Kevin!
  47. Thanks also, kivatinitz!
  48. Many thanks, Wow22! This post by Jericho shows a nice collection of these pieces - the blue one is the only one not shown. The red vase is the same shape as mine. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/st...
  49. Wow, what a fun & colourful piece! Pure exuberance in glass!
  50. Neat find, this set is really cute. I recall a few years ago reading a list of food & drink that lights up under UV, & checked out a couple of things I had - tonic water & turmeric. They glow just l...
