  1. I have a pair in the well - known shape, but I've never seen this one before - nice score!
  2. I've had a bit of a think about this & perhaps it is a piece of modern studio glass from the 1980s? There was quite a lot which had an Art Nouveau inspired style. Can't see any markings though, & stud...

  4. Thanks so much, Justanovice!
  5. Thomas, thanks so much for what you bring to CW - the love of music is a passion for life that brings people of all kinds together, & uplifts us through the most challenging times. Your post shares p...
  6. I actually think this could be earlier...I used to own one similar, purchased at a flea market in 1995...it had wear on the base consistent with some age - my thoughts at the time was that it was 1960...
  7. Many thanks, MALKEY!
  8. It does appreciate the cool climate, & seems to be positively flourishing here, philmac51! :-)
  9. I shall have to keep a lookout for them Bambus1920! :-)
  10. So glad you're enjoying it, & yes, I definitely agree that one's wish list is always full of things seen in other's collections! CW has opened my eyes to so many different pieces I'd never seen before...
  11. This vase captures the frozen liquidity of glass to perfection - those molten, syrupy handles!
  12. A class act in every respect!
  13. Your patience has been rewarded with an exceptional piece - a stimulating treat for the eyes!
  14. Wow, so stunning! Your early Loetz collection is fabulous!
  15. Many thanks, Bambus1920! It's true, so much glass of this era has designs inspired by nature, whether flowers, foliage, or thorny branches...
  16. They date from the late 1990s...I recall buying one as a gift for my mother's 65th birthday in 1999.
  17. Thank you most kindly, MALKEY!
  18. That finial is insanely fabulous!
  19. Thank you most kindly, Vintagefran & nice to see you back around here again!
  20. Welcome back! That's a pretty rose bowl indeed! The mark is not one I've encountered, either, most interesting!
  21. Cheers MALKEY, that is high praise coming from you who has so much fine glass...
  22. Thanks also, Treasure Tex - the pieces on top of the cabinet are a pair of tall lattice pattern vaseline vases with applied flowers by Harrach & between those are three hand vases by John Derbyshire i...
  23. Many thanks, Ivonne, I am happy to share...
  24. It's a choice bit of Welz, isn't it, sklo42...very pleased when I picked it up at the flea market one summer Saturday...
  25. Thanks so much, MALKEY!
  26. Many thanks, Newfld!
  27. My pleasure, Treasure Tex!
  28. Thanks so much, MALKEY, I am somewhere over the rainbow myself so very appropriate that I collect them too! :-)
  29. Many thanks, Mrstyndall!
  30. Thanks so much, Bambus1920!
  31. Thanks also, MALKEY!
  32. Many thanks, Treasure Tex, & yes, I do often think of the incredibly skilled artisans who created these pieces so long ago...the hard conditions they worked under, in particular. They spun magic out o...
  33. Thank you most kindly, Michelle!
  34. Thanks also, antiquerose...yes, it was a monumental task, took me a few months working for several hours at a time, quite exhausting but worth the effort in the end. My collection looks better here th...
  35. Thanks so much, MALKEY!
  36. Many thanks, Mrstyndall!
  37. It's magical! As you said, you never know with collecting - the pieces you've never dreamed of owning can sometimes come your way quite by chance... My empathy to you for the move...still getting t...
  38. Great art often springs from humble sources of inspiration... Keep on inspiring us all, MALKEY, & all the best to your son on his special day...
  39. Many thanks, kyratango! I promise there will be much more to come - it's going to keep me busy for quite a while...
  40. Just the tip of the iceberg, Bambus1920! :-) This is less than half of it all. I am going to get some bespoke cabinets made eventually...
  41. Thanks also, Newfld!
  42. Thanks for the good wishes, Anik!
  43. Thanks so much Thomas, much appreciated!
  44. What a great basket - the variations are seemingly endless! I'm quite familiar with the pink dots (& I have one example in a brown/maroon shade) but this blue is unusual - & so is the crimp & handle!
  45. Bambus1920 - yes, I am incurably eclectic in my collecting habits (not quite as bad as I used to be in my early days, however!) My inclination is towards fancy glass - Victorian, Art Nouveau, & some ...
  46. Thank you most kindly, MALKEY, indeed I am having a super time with my glass, unpacking it & arranging in new ways. Still a bit more to go yet, but an enjoyable process!
  47. I agree, Bambus 1920, it definitely looks like a spider on the back of the vase! And glad that you're enjoying the Silveria...this shelf features quite a few favourites - two other Silveria vases, s...
  48. Many thanks, Newfld!
  49. It's only forever, not long at all...
  50. Great post, fab collection!
