I have collected glass from early 20thC to today, although much of it is from the post war years to the 1990s. I have works from the cheapest of production glass to one off designer pieces; it's all great to me! (Read more)

  1. That's a beautiful truck.
  2. Mine's more a household pressure group that helps me control my spending. I do have some strict personal rules for buying. Like *who I buy from, whether what I am buying caused any harm to people...
  3. Thanks apostata. The Japanese particularly love frosted glass. I will check on the Venini.
  4. Ah, those damned pressure groups! Most of us have them Apostata.
  5. Wow, that's a lot of Heaney! I have never seen that many goblets together before. Stunning glass.
  6. Thanks JB!
  7. Thank you Sylvia!
  8. Woo, safe! It's amazing Marin. So happy it'sin the best hands now.
  9. Wow, this is fantastic! Congrats, and it's great the artist answered you.
  10. See I wouldn't resist buying this even without that pretty finial.
  11. It is beautiful Michelle. This type of expanded foil pattern is one the Japanese took onboard after the war. They knew a good thing when they saw it!
  12. Thanks to these CW legends for loving my post and stating such great obs: Marin Scott Peggy Brikal Trey and Harry!
  13. It’s a possibility AO. I think it’s a very British piece even though it’s here in Aus. Thanks for having a look and giving me another idea.
  14. It's the old 'photos don't do them justice' I think Inky but I'm glad you could pick up on how detailed hey are.
  15. Bernard it's certainly a varied collection and he did so many other pieces. I have never seen duplicates but that doesn't mean he didn't repeat patterns. Thanks for the love.
  16. Kevin thanks! This collection has taken some years and it's probably big enough, but you know, collectors, I'm still always looking!
  17. I have to agree Mcheconi, and thanks for the comment. So much Japanese art and crafts have amazing skill and creativity and is underappreciated. I will admit it has taken some time to train my brain!
  18. Thanks Vet! I'm pretty chuffed with this lot.
  19. Thanks Jenni. The plate amuses me: a Japanese artist painting an Egyptian figure in a Bohemian technique. good hey!
  20. Great, thanks!
  21. Well you know, not going to point fingers when people do me so many favours!
  22. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/210547-a-lucky-find https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/203790-japanese-enameled-glass-by-amemiya https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/303141-enamel...
  23. They were a hell of a bike! The yellow is iconic is it not? What a great piece for nostalgia.
  24. Congrats! Don't you love it when that happens. Rare though, even with a snipe I usually get bombed. I just love the sheen of it, bouncing off the different parts.
  25. RSW - how good was he!
  26. The rhinestone border is the finishing bit! I love that shell glass.
  27. A khaki green duck, I'll pay that!
  28. Yeah yeah it's calcite...... No sorry, I have no idea either but I like it!
  29. Stunning photos MrsT, showing off this gorgeous brooch. Trifari were amazing designers and makers.
  30. OMG how cute! I can hear them singing!!
  31. This could not possibly be any more delicious Peggy, and it sounds rare! Exciting find. Recovering from Covid here but ok. I hope you have a healthy and happy year.
  32. It is such a restrained but rich decor Michelle, I can see why it's a favourite.
  33. Holy cow! Amazing.
  34. These are so sweet. Thanks for posting your votives, most are new to me and they are lovely as well as interesting.
  35. It looks beautifully made Kevin, and quite old too by the sound of it. I hope the new house comes along well! Post as you get time, please!
  36. It's hard to know with the bird because it could be off hand from any glass maker. The ashtray looks 1950s, and likely Japanese.
  37. Such a fab post Jenni. I love every bit of it. Best year for you please :)
  38. I love the opal look of the enamel, so aquatic!
  39. This is a beautiful little vase! It's lovely ou know it's history too. Handerbeit means handmade in German and it's such a pity the stamp is smudged.
  40. These are very sweet. The bird reminds me of one from Sasaki glass.
  41. A helpful friend showed me this for sale in NZ Bernard and I was very tempted. The sticker is the bomb! I'm still trying to research who made these.
  42. I love this Santa glass, I would have thought porcelain, but no, more great American glass from Jenni! Photo 4 has sucked me in........
  43. That's a really lovely Christmas brooch without being tacky! Rare to find such a thing. Nice one Jenni.
  44. The Swedish loved little birds like this one, I'm sure I've seen similar from Hadeland and Mantorp. This sweetie is particularly cute, all green and dimples.
  45. OK OK! you put us all to shame says Karen still in her jamies at 2 o'clock! You know just how suave you look here Marin! Nice glass too :)
  46. I just love these! The shape, the squeeze, the decor. All class.
  47. Hi Bonnie! I really like the way the stripes were added to this vase, very novel.
  48. Such a rich decor!
  49. It's a beautiful lot of art glass. I really love the tall vases in the last two photos, somehow that shape really appeals to me.
  50. This is a great vase. Looks big. How tall Bernard?
