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. Bonza ute for a chippy. I will interpret that: Good truck for a carpenter.
  2. It’s a shape that works best when small I think. Yummy custard colour and I love the cadmium glow.
  3. That’s lovely, shape and particularly the delicious colour!
  4. Nice find Bill, that's not just old, it's beautiful too.
  5. All Luiligongfang is fabulous but this one is particularly good for me. I love the colours of the glass in this one, the fantastic brick style background, and THAT cat! Nice one Abdul.
  6. Oh wow, how cool is this fish!!
  7. What a lovely post!
  8. I will say it's likely Chinese. If TruthorDare disagrees I will happily be corrected. Lisa knows cloisonne. Wired cells with a close pattern and blue interior and brass rimmed lid. Nice,I like thi...
  9. Happy. Why is he?
  10. Wow, that is so stylish.
  11. Michelle is the Heckert Queen!
  12. I think this one escaped from the dark side. I love how cutely wicked it is!
  13. I have seen similar for sale in my internet travels and I think they were noted as Kutani. Which pottery? No idea.
  14. Congratulations Alan on finding and acquiring this big beauty! Rare I am sure.
  15. I really like the inclusion of the pink spot, it adds a lot to an already beautiful decor. That mount: stunning!
  16. That's a totally new Japan glass decor for me Kevin! Very cool find, great sticker.
  17. So soft, so subtle, so lovely.
  18. It is a great pendant RL, and thanks for the info!
  19. Absolutely the most rocketish land boat ever made.
  20. Another US glass maker I don't know, the list seems endless! This is very stylish Jenni, and I love the iridescence.
  21. I think that's amazing they made this brooch with different animals. Imagine having a line of them on your jacket! :)))
  22. I let Elisabethan say what I also thought!!
  23. I have to wonder how you stumbled onto this old post Eileen but I'm glad you did and have commented. I have some more Amemiya Hee Noto works now and like this one they are beautifully and painstakin...
  24. Wow, that should sound good, and be very technically great in that German way.
  25. More great littlies! Apart from the jewellery I really like the little bottle. Looks small enough for medicine or bitters or something. I can see why you picked that one up Bill.
  26. That would look wonderful flowing down a coat or dress. Nice find MrsT.
  27. Well tamed Fort. It looks great for age.
  28. That's a beautifully modeled set. I initially thought Asian but the signature sure isn't!
  29. It's a cool thing. Comfortable?
  30. I don't think they made hand blown glass for long Kevin, and it was nearly always in this shape. I have seen a larger bowl but still not too big. This looks like a really nice one. It's fab you got ...
  31. Thank you thank you thank you Jenni for showing your cabinet as well as these two beautiful birds. I wish I could sit at your cabinet and look and touch. CW is a great replacement I guess.
  32. Wow, what a crab!! Never heard of Carolee but clearly they did good :))
  33. That is a really lovely moulded shape. I like it hanging but if it were up the other way I think the beautiful glasswork would be more obvious.
  34. It looks so good on and the meaning of these is lovely, particularly as a gift from your partner. I know about zero about jewellery but it looks later than the Victorian style of these, maybe even 19...
  35. It is a beauty Alan, and as you say carefully and well made particularly for it's size. Great find!
  36. It's a fiery little creature. Love the gorgeous swirls and iridisation. What can't Fenton do with glass? not much!
  37. I love her from here!!
  38. It may be modern Chinese? They did this style very well and also finished them nicely. I don't know enough about either Murano or Chinese glass to tell, just putting it out there.
  39. Nice. Interesting and pretty early for Ableman too I think. Happy to see posts on the other pieces I can see there!
  40. Work has meant I am late to MMM but I am not disappointed. This looks better than the day a Fordson rolled out of it's factory, and I have stopped worrying about the veracity of your sources now you ...
  41. Marvelous find Alan! I always like filigree and agree this one is a beauty. Hope you are staying safe and well there :)
  42. Very stylish. Great period shape and graphic!
  43. Fantastic!!
  44. I love these sorts of coloured glass jars with the ground seal. I've quite a few Japanese made ones but I don't think this one is. Maybe American?
  45. Apart from the sensual decor the shape of this is purely voluptuary. There is something perfect about it's dimensions.
  46. Some alliteration: Crazy cute and cool, Kevin.
  47. So sorry Eileen, and I will leave this up to keep me real :))
  48. Thanks for the love and comment Maureen. Clearly your son has good taste! :)
  49. Thanks Mani, and great to hear from you!
  50. Thanks Lisa, it is a quite simple piece that shows how glass can work in lots of ways. Thanks for your love.
