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. Champion find! Proves that there's still "gold" out there to be found in the op shops for those savvy & persistent enough to keep up the search - well done!
  2. In my opinion, most certainly Victorian & definitely not Fenton. The lack of a screw fitting is not an issue, as these were usually set into a metal mount with plaster of Paris.
  3. Thanks so much, Lori, it's nice to think that my collection is renewing your interest in glass. When I joined CW just over four years ago, even though I'd been collecting for a long time already, the ...
  4. Thanks also, kivatinitz! Yes, I remember seeing Labyrinth back in the 80s as a teenager - loved it!
  5. Totally agree, EZa - he was a true artist, & is sorely missed by many of us. But he lives on through his amazing, diverse music, & as an inspiring role model for creative people...
  6. Much appreciated, Peggy! Thought you'd enjoy this one, it's got a lot of interesting things going on, as Victorian glass tends to do... I've been comparing it to other tube vases I have with applied ...
  7. I totally get where you're coming from, Karen - it just adds that touch of quirk which makes it even better...& I'm always up for a touch of quirk! :-)
  8. Thanks also, Scott!
  9. Many thanks, kivatinitz!
  10. Many thanks, jscott0363! I'm thrilled with it, because it's a bit different...I've got a lot of glass with applied decoration, & quite a few "tube vases" but nothing in this colour combo, or with an ...
  11. Thanks also, EZa! I'm also a big fan of Lou Reed, who was, as you said, a true modern poet & a major inspiration to Bowie. Their collaboration on "Transformer" is up there as one of the greatest in ro...
  12. Many thanks, jscott0363! Yes, I was just thrilled to receive this book, it's awesome. And I agree, it was a massive shock when he died...I actually couldn't believe the news when I first heard it. He'...
  13. Thanks so much, Peggy...& as the resident doyenne of Welz, your fine taste is greatly appreciated!
  14. Likewise to you, Scott!
  15. Thanks so much, Scott!
  16. Many thanks, jscott0363!
  17. Maybe was used for printing "play money" for a board game or toy use?
  18. Not millefiori but some type of glass cane slices, perhaps more aligned to bead or button production. There were a lot of interesting glass canes beyond millefiori used in the jewellery/button industr...
  19. Beautiful thoughts, Karen, & I totally agree with your sentiments!
  20. Many thanks, Kevin, & wishing the same to you, too...& thanks also for your support & kindness!
  21. Thanks also, Peggy, & wishing you all the best for the New Year, hope it brings positive things your way. Thank you so much for your support & thoughtfulness throughout the year as well! Yes, I also ...
  22. Thanks so much, jscott03631, & wishing likewise to you!
  23. Thanks so much, Ivonne, much appreciated & the same to you!
  24. A portable handbag hook, I believe. Used to hang a handbag from a table. The top disc sits on the tabletop, with the hook holding the bag underneath.
  25. Thanks so much, Lori, that is so kind of you to say, & your supportive words are greatly appreciated! In the past, I could have not imagined being an inspiration to anyone...& the idea still takes me...
  26. Thanks so much for your kind words, Michelle! Wishing you just the same for the coming year, too!
  27. Karen, I'm simply knocked out that you'd think of me as some kind of hero...wow! This season is for many a time of reflection, & when I think back to my situation this time three years ago, I wouldn'...
  28. Peggy, I like to refer to certain suggestive, ambiguous things as a "magic flower". This is a prime example of the species & a wonderful illustration of how art can mirror the polymorphous extravaganc...
  29. LOL Karen, I was waiting for someone to have a visceral response to the rather suggestive appearance of this! Out of a couple of other Welz three - ball vases in my collection, this one is the most "p...
  30. Thanks so much, Manikin! Festive greetings to you too!
  31. Thanks also, VioletOrange & the same to you!
  32. Thanks so much, Michelle & the same wishes to you too!
  33. Many thanks, Peggy, & as you well know, a nice piece of Welz is always a treat!
  34. This is way cool, love it!
  35. Wow! That topper is a tree in itself - simply magical! Hope you've had an enjoyable, relaxing day, & wishing all the very best to you...& I reckon you've earned a shed - load of good vibes for being ...
  36. Many thanks, artfoot, & likewise to you!
  37. Much appreciated, jscott0363, & a Merry Christmas to you, too! Being a hardcore collector I have a permanent "license to self - gift" on a regular basis...because life's too short not to have more ni...
  38. My sincerest thanks in return to you, Peggy, for your kindness, positive outlook, & endlessly inspiring collection (so many superb examples in this tasteful, elegant composition!) Thinking of you, & ...
  39. Hi Allyn5157, that's super, I'm so glad that my post was of help to you. I agree, it's always good to learn about the origins of items in your collection. CW has been so helpful to me over the years. ...
  40. Hi Allyn5157, happy to be of help! Kind regards, Marin.
  41. My pleasure, Uffe! They're like two peas in a pod, aren't they? Regards, Marin.
  42. Thanks again, Karen...just catching up after a day out...
  43. Hiya Karen, as a self - confessed fairy lamp "tragic", I concur that the two piece ones are far more commonly found, while the three - piece variety are much harder to find intact. Imagine how easily ...
  44. Absolutely stunning piece - congratulations, Alan! Wishing you a safe & peaceful festive season!
  45. Many thanks, apostata!
  46. Many thanks, apostata - & I quite agree!
  47. Many thanks, jscott0363! Some "orphan" fairy lamp parts (& I have a few) can look slightly incomprehensible on their own, but this one passes quite well as fancy bowl. I keep chocolates in it! :-)
  48. Lori, that is so kind of you to say! My collection means so much to me, it's been a rock in hard times, & a labor of love, & it's wonderful to think that you find it inspiring...
  49. Thanks also, philmac51 - & yes, I agree, this is a particularly fine version of Peloton that's simply brimming over with texture...
  50. Many thanks, kwqd! Yes, it's always nice to make up a set, no matter how long it takes, it's just so rewarding to bring matching pieces together.
