Currently my collections iI started collecting art glass and art pottery in my early twenties - a long time ago. Never could stay focused on anything in particular. Currently my collections include some Loetz and other Bohemian glass, Imperial Art Glass from 1923-26, French ceramics from the late 19th Century through 1930 or so, German "Fat Lava", German post WWII studio ceramics, some mid-2oth Century American pots (Scheier, Beatrice Wood, Wildenhain/s, etc), Taxile Doat, George Ohr, Patrick Nordstrom, Libbey Glass, Ohio Potteries, Fulper, etc, etc. I believe I have a "good eye" but I am not an expert in most of what I collect. My thinking is to share pictures from my collection and relate whatever I do know about the objects - with the hope that, from time to time, other more knowledgeable collectors can add to the "conversation".

  5. sklo42 Yes, a spray of metallic salts applied when the vase is still hot.
  6. Phil, the light is bouncing off the vase in the 2nd photo and through the vase in the 1st. The vase is cobalt blue AND has a thin "lustre" coating.
  7. Libbey?
  8. The most important key to packing, well shown by this situation, is to ensure the vase/etc DOESN"T MOVE. I don't care if it is surrounded by paper, peanuts, bubblewrap, a second box or some combinatio...
