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. Lucky family to have such great things at their party!
  2. Cool oven, cooler as a cabinet!
  3. Ok ok, enough showing off. Just because they are beautiful, rare, different, Loetz, and a pair! You find astonishing pieces Inky. Congratulations, again!
  4. Luxe lovely leaping lion!
  5. It’s wonderful how dynamic this sculptures. Perfectly balanced and modelled. Such a good one, Scott!
  6. Jema fish, lovely.
  7. I really love this one Kevin. I used to have a Saegusa ox and tiger in pottery with this sort of cool Art Deco vibe.
  8. It’s pretty cartoonish for Jema ! Love it!
  9. I saw this and giggled, it’s fun and cool and green!
  10. That’s lovely . Gorgeous crab.
  11. Just love this Jenni. Colour, the drum, the feline. Special.
  12. So good to see such ephemera!
  13. Please take care of yourself and family Sylvie. Keep dropping in to help distract from the awful events.
  14. Marin you are a star among us and you deserve so much pride. I showed my son you last photo and he asked me was it especially styled. The Victorian trend, your stylish suit and brogues, the young man...
  15. Gotta love a new sub section! Especially when it's as beautiful as these. That subtle greyish blue is so soft and gorgeous.
  16. Can I blame drugs? Had a knee replacement a few days ago, on big meds. Nah, can't blame drugs. Peggy please delete all or any of this as you see fit.
  17. Yeah I reread that Marin and apologise profusely. Not something I should get wrong, I know better!! Once a comment is up on CW I can't get it back!!!! Sorry mate.
  18. Wow. The lace work is wonderful. I'm no expert but it looks like a combination of machine and hand made lace, like tatting?
  19. I have never seen these before the mechanism must be very cool. Love your toy and your little mate there.
  20. It's delightful, and to me has an almost Dutch shape to it. I guess styles often crossed countries.
  21. OK so I adored Marin's but, don't tell her, I like this better. And that's when hers was in my favourite colour! (You know she won't be hurt) The shape of this works so well with the decor and the wa...
  22. Yeah, pay that for sure. Just lovely and I can't go past purple hues ever. I thought we might see a glass-in-snow photo! Stay warm and well, Delta is coming.
  23. These are such a sweet decor. Amazing finding two! I think NZ and Aus got a lot of Japanese glass compared to other countries.It certainly seems more common down here.
  24. I don't think it Japanese, likely Murano.
  25. Sorry if I'm a bit slack at present Jenni. Got urgently into a specialist last Wednesday because of a knee lock (trauma and arthritis caused) and almost before I could breathe Friday I got a new knee....
  26. That’s a great piece of more modernist pottery by Nakano Toen. Toen basically means pottery, the Nakano kiln is in Tokoname. Really nice find.
  27. Love it’s attitude, very goosish !
  28. I think it’s a cockerel. I love the shape of this and as you say may well be Saegusa. It’s great Kevin!
  29. Swordfish hey? Different subject but very recognisable and beautifully done.
  30. My two favourite colours in this sweet girl!
  31. It’s amazing. The shape and glass ground decor looks Italian to me but the painting throws me off. It’s a class piece.
  32. I love this set. That brooch!
  33. Can’t help, but wow!!
  34. Penguween!! Perfect!!!!
  35. Don’t see a lot of Royal Brierley down our way? Very nice.
  36. She is a perfect figure from Haiti!
  37. It looks real, so beautifully carved. The colour is good for aged cinnabar too. It’s a beauty.
  38. Absolutely too cute! These could have been made at any number of kilns in Japan, making trinkets for the Western market was a big business. I like the Bitossi like glaze.
  39. Yes, spectacular. The panned metal emphasises that incredible red. Well acquired Phil.
  40. See? Another very cool colour, that almost jelly red.
  41. What an absolutely delightful fish, leaping out of the water, smiling, glistening, proud she is so beautiful!
  42. I love that deep blackish blue. Simple shape beautifully expressive.
  43. That’s amazing, such a beautiful piece of glass. I think that’s a partial sticker for Strombergshyttan. A very different piece for them!
  44. Gorgeous vase. Yes Art Glass is Japanese, a sales name for Iwatsu who also made Hineri.
  45. That’s an interesting style for Koshida!
  46. That is so lovely. The script doesn't look Hangul, more Chinese or Japanese Hiragana. On balance considering the style I think this is more likely Chinese.
  47. I have a few hand painted Japanese bowls and plates, worth little, but like this just lovely!
  48. I saw the thumbnail and thought this was an ikebana bowl! Love the laze.
  49. I love this decor, almost monochromatic but just a ping of colour to lift it. The twisted case just adds to it!
  50. Lovely shape and such clean colours. As usual for many of these Czech pieces it still looks fresh and modern.
