  1. I think I've developed eye strain from looking at your choice items - a richly exotic, magical and fantastic glass garden.
  2. Sumptuous and impressive collection of floriform, IronLace. What a visual delight to see these sitting on a table in a room. You have chosen well. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Hi racer4four, this basket is well designed without being too ostentatious. Pink shading with the stripes and roundels and an unusual crimped top creates the appeal. It sits on an old Victorian tabl...
  4. Michelleb007, Thank you for your generous comment. Aren't they pleasing to the eye? I am lucky to have these three and one other I posted earlier, which is bigger and has vaseline cranberry opalesce...
  5. Thanks, racer4four for both your love and comment. I love, like many other glass collectors, the shapes and colours created by this maker. Pastel shades in pinks and greens are my favourites - espec...
  6. Thanks, IronLace for your comment and love. The Burmese colour is quite strong and very appealing to the eye. A familiar story, the seller didn't know what he had and it was just my luck to know som...
  7. IronLace, apologies for the late post. They are special aren't they? To have survived intact for so long is miraculous. I might put up some more photos of them later to do them justice. I don't th...
  8. Thanks for the comment, Scott. I've seen Legras vases in splashed mauve and yellow on websites. My attribution is based on the shape of the top - but I could be wrong! I'll have to investigate this ...
  9. Hi scott, many of these old items were made in fairly long production runs. This style-shape was made in at least blue and vaseline green. Could there have been other colours? They are very nice b...
  10. Thanks to both IronLace and scottvez for their assistance in identifying the maker of the above. I had no idea that Harrach made them and was just guessing. I've just edited the title and description.
  11. Thanks for the love and the comment, also racer4four. I read that in an on-line article about Heaney's studio, years ago. It's good when artists / makers sign their work. His signature is quite dis...
  12. Hi, racer4four. Your Heaney item is very good. It is interesting how similar decoration that was used in a particular period is found across a range of vases and bowls. Heaney produced a wide range...
  13. Newfld, yes it is a gorgeous bowl. Many people have admired it. It is one of our first purchases of his glass and we haven't regretted it. The colour is what you may call an 'electric blue' and set...
  14. Hi, IronLace. Heaney glass items certainly have gone up in value since he retired from glass making. I think production costs forced his hand - chemicals and gas. I have a few more nice pieces that...
  15. Racer4four, went to his studio in the late 90s as well. Most of the pieces we purchased were at a local outlet in Newcastle CBD. The owner of the shop used to go to Heaney's and bring back a traile...
  16. Thanks Newfld. I wanted a pair of these and couldn't resist when I saw another one. Great examples of Bohemian glass making. They're great mates together on the glass shelf.
  17. Great website, Wow22! I was absolutely drooling over those colours and shapes. I've placed this reference material into my favourites folder. Thank you for the tip!
  18. Thanks, Wow22. I wonder if they gave it that name because of the color and the seaweed like raised surface pattern on the jug's circumference?
  19. truthordare, thanks for your knowledgeable input on the Loetz vase. I looked at the websites you listed and they were very helpful. I love the colour tone and the simplicity of its design. It's a v...
  20. That's eye catching, Iron Lace. The shape of the handle reminds me of the one on that blue opalescent jug. The Bohemians loved those randomly scattered mica spangles. Colours are bright and cheerf...
  21. An authentic Italian pottery wall plate. Made by Capodimonte. I wouldn't mind that hanging on my wall!
  22. Thank you, Newfld for your appreciation of this lovely Victorian item. It's one of my favourites, too! Wish I had another three of them, but that's being greedy!
  23. You have two very tasty vases there, IronLace. I love the Bohemian green - and with a touch of iridescence, it makes it extra special! I'm keeping my eyes open for more examples. They are really w...
  24. Thanks, IronLace for your informed opinion. I remember now that I've heard of that decor before. I've just checked a pair of jugs that I have and they have the same faint pattern on them as well and...
  25. Newfld, I'm thrilled that you love this particular item. I've loved cranberry, vaseline opalescent glass for quite a long time and to collect these colors in jam dishes has always been a goal of mine...
  26. Thanks for your positive comment Alfred101. Yes, it is an attractive design with its loops and color.
  27. Thanks, vetraio50. It is very hard to be definitive about attribution. A book or website will come out one day which will make it easier to identify these pieces from long ago.
  28. Chenry01, I agree that the contrast between those two colours on this little gem are very striking and effective. I'm glad you like it.
  29. Yes, IronLace, in terms of origin it could go either way. When we talk of Cyril Manley, some people disputed his attributions, especially Bohemian glass for English. He was one of the main guys that...
  30. Thanks, again, Newfld. All of them are attractive designs and would still look lovely in any era. I have admired them for a long time and it's a pleasure to discover new shapes and colours. I wish ...
  31. Thanks, racer4four. The bowl is a beautiful colour when the light is behind it. It was a lucky find and I knew I had to buy it. Good examples from this maker are rare to find. I have a small dish ...
  32. Thanks for the generous comment racer4 four. Some of the 'Jack in the Pulpits' can be very bland and uninspiring in both their colour and shape. I think these are a tad better than the average. I d...
  33. IronLace, thank you for your comment. There are many, many varieties of this classic glass design. I've Googled 'Kralik Floriform' and there are hundreds of mouth-watering images to examine. Hats o...
  34. IronLace, thank you for the gracious comment. I definitely agree that storage and display of glass is a problem. We all want to see what we purchase in the open and unobstructed. It's a shame that ...
  35. Newfld, thank you. They're small but they have an impact! Beautifully colored threads make for compulsive viewing. My only example of peloton but one can only hope to find some more.
  36. racer4four, thank you. I was thrilled when they arrived. Absolutely perfect examples of their type. I can understand why you like them and yes, the colored threading is amazing when it's scattered ...
  37. Ms.CrystalShip, Thanks for your interest in the collection. Who doesn't like ruffles when it comes to old glass? It sure does define the period when these items were made. The only problem is that ...
  38. Many thanks, Ms.CrystalShip. The pastel colour is superbly done and does assist to promote the overall design of the vase. This was one of our first Bohemian glass items. I didn't know much about w...
  39. Thanks, again Newfld for the positive comment. I keep these pieces close together in a cabinet. I usually find one every couple of years and if I do see an example, I bid to win! They ooze Victoria...
  40. Thanks, Newfld for your appreciative comment. It certainly creates interest. The flowers being hand made, must have taken longer to form and apply than the pressed, stylized flowers. For this reaso...
  41. Thanks again IronLace for the nice comment. It would have to come from a first class glassmaker, but where exactly? Some have suggested that similar types were produced in England and Bohemia. I hop...
  42. Thanks, Richmond for your kind comment. Floriform is very desirable and there are so many amazing variations of this type. The old glassmakers were very clever and skilful.
  43. I must apologize for my silly mistake, IronLace. I'm somewhat of a Luddite concerning technology. As you know, this is the first time I'm posting on this site and I am still learning the protocols o...
  44. Thanks, scottvez. This was my first floriform item that I purchased. I didn't know what it was and where it came from and who made it but I knew it was old. I love any piece of glass that has a com...
  45. Thanks, IronLace. Your collection is also marvellous and I am envious of what you have been able to procure. I have wanted to own a good piece of Peloton for years since I first saw some examples in...

  47. Edwardian occasional table circa 1902 - 14. Google and you will see images of this style. Many of them were made of oak. I'm restoring a similar table at the moment.
