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. Rockin' the mo.
  2. Thanks Sylvia!
  3. Thanks Sylvia and MrsT. I am pretty happy with it too!
  4. It's a cheap and fun thing to do, opening stored boxes of glass! The trails really make this pop I think Peggy, and it's such a Japanese thing to do to use a dirty colour like that on such a pure bas...
  5. I’m right onto it Phil! Thanks mate, hope you are staying well and keeping entertained.
  6. Lol Vet. Onward and outward now ! (Just a bit, ok?)
  7. Phew glad you said that Marin, now I almost feel ok about the Kralik ref!! It’s a nice piece of work, and was cool to find again How good is a lovely surprise when it comes free!
  8. Thanks so much Jenni! It’s very different to what a lot of people think about Japanese glass.
  9. Hey Malkey, can you help Dave identify these bottles he found in the Tyne? https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/280583-big-blue-bottles?in=all
  10. We need to get Malkey onto these. He's a bottle collecting Tyne-sider.
  11. A beauty.
  12. Awesome. And the ladle as a tongue! Cool as.
  13. Another op shop gem! You know jewels better than I but maybe amethyst and moonstones? Both are semi-precious and might go with the gold.
  14. Maybe it's a vesta case for matches? Just a guess.
  15. Wow Maureen that is a pretty good op shop find! I am not quite a coulrophobiac but yeah, clowns are generally creepy. This one seems more goofy to me so I would wear this!
  16. It is a beautiful watercolour. I don't know Japanese art but you may get some answer from one of these Facebook groups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/544674165629482/ (Japanese Art) https://www....
  17. I love this, so many Japanese elements in such a simple piece. I think there is a good chance the birds etc are silver. No marks?
  18. That is a very emotional picture.
  19. I was going to say the base is interesting on this Kevin. The sticker looks later to me so maybe they had a production change.
  20. Beautiful poetry to accompany your lovely photo. Thanks Malkey.
  21. A nice own gift this! Inky is all sorts of awesome.
  22. Hey, happy birthday Marin! From my view each year your birthdays become better and better, so I hope you have enjoyed your day and enjoy who you are and where you are at. A great view into your fami...
  23. A very stylish fish!
  24. Wow, very nice and a period shape. Antique and wonderful!
  25. These are pure sculptural glass and for me the whites are best. White really allows shadows to show the textural and thickness changes around the holes and rim. Stunning, and great photos too. Cong...
  26. Como Italy? Good chance it is as you say. I did consider Japan like this one of mine https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/188588-japanese-enamelled-decanter-and-glasses but the leaves are di...
  27. That inky blue is such a great colour, and everything about this brooch sits right. Hobe clearly made good stuff.
  28. Love this as a pendant!
  29. Wow, that is a beautiful bird brooch!
  30. No my boy's seem to last a few months but I did notice that the sides of the bower on yours seem a bit light on. Maybe it's a juvenile's bower and it hasn't been good enough or an older male has had a...
  31. Lol Eileen. Aqua Teen is new to me and I am still catching up. Gotta thank Jim for the intro. Thanks for your comment too!
  32. The amber is a particularly beautiful colour, and the shape is lovely. Glad you love it Eileen, and thanks!
  33. Thanks Eileen, I know I was lucky to see it on the day. I think our eye develops in our field as we go on!
  34. My initial go to for Japanese marks is http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/20thcenturyjapan.shtml There are other sites but this is a good one to start.
  35. He's doing a great job! I always have my blue pegs stolen. I hope you get to see him dance around the bower for her.
  36. You and Eileen have taught me so much about beautiful, quality, costume jewellery Ken. Therefore I can say with some confidence, this is a stellar piece!
  37. Yes, thank you Sylvia, and I hope you all stay well and happy.
  38. This bowl is Japanese, and a really lovely hand painted piece. The signature should be rotated 90 deg anticlockwise, but I can't identify it. I don't think it's very old, definitely post war and may...
  39. Fred is tough. Nice number of posts showing there today Fort, and all special. Legend.
  40. I love this chook!
  41. Fantastic, Marin! Drove through the mountains a week or so ago and Bells Line of Road was heartbreaking. Some is coming back but so much lost forever My local bower bird never uses he same bower y...
  42. I'm always astonished at the rarity of your papers Huddy. Of course, we have to think what happened to people like this man in the following years.
  43. It's very wearable Jean and I hope you do on your pretty hands. My jewellery knowledge is poor so is it the gem cuts and mounts that show age? I hope you are safe wherever you are at present. Spai...
  44. So that's where you get it from Eye!!
  45. Thanks for the link Iggy. That sure is a concept album . Gotta say Harry, you don't do the easy things :)
  46. I put out my Easter things the other day and one is from Brazil, and even though I know you are not, it made me think of your wonderful things Sylvia. And here you are! These are wonderful, and I enj...
  47. Wow! This is a beauty Kivanitz. I hope our specialist collectors see this.
  48. Hi Maureen, call me Karen! I am not a collector of jewellery but my friends here at CW have taught me to love and appreciate it. Even I can see this is special!
  49. Fly amanita are such fairy tale fungi. Very cool, but I have never seen them here, only in he mountains. Maybe they need the cold I love the little reds too. It must be great your way now it's autum...
  50. Don't we love finding an answer!! Nice piece of glass too :)
