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. Really interesting colour pair. That intense acqua and the soft pink. It works!
  2. Lauren says it perfectly!
  3. I have never seen a carnival glass animal before. How gorgeous is it! Are these rare Jenni?
  4. Oh goodness what an adorable bunny! Langham excellence again.
  5. Thanks very muchScott.
  6. Thanks Jenni, they are a lovely couple!
  7. Yes Kevin, one smaller than the other. Thanks for giving it a name. Mento. Yeah Ho2, I don’t know his sources but he gets so much cool and interesting stuff. Amazing!
  8. How has his feather not been chewed off? I want to do it and I'm old.
  9. It is a beauty Kevin.
  10. Eileen I have trouble finding old Japanese glass let alone getting it so one this old is great to have. Thanks for the love and comment.
  11. Thanks MrsT and Eileen. It was a gamble to get the lot but it turned out well.
  12. Thanks so much MsCrystal!
  13. It seems to be a company primarily selling Czech made glass but I have seen some animals I am sure were Chinese made. Whatever, Rikaro glass is never crappy.
  14. I never knew Rikaro uses uranium glass. It's really good modern glass I think.
  15. Awesome occy!
  16. Those colours are so good together, and of course there is the amazing detail of Sherman design and stone setting.
  17. I thought you found my memory somewhere and added it to your collection, because I can't find it!
  18. Each piece alone astounds me. As a set it's really extraordinary.
  19. Holy Sherman, that is gorgeous!
  20. I think more likely Chinese. There is a workshop there that produces some interesting and different glass with these contrasting layers and uniquely worked outside clear case. I love them. Sorry I d...
  21. A family related label Brunswick? I remember we had some boxes of these shellac disks previously owned by a great uncle. I have no idea where they wet.
  22. Again I am entranced by the colour. So many of these American glass pieces have these awesome colours!
  23. Yum. Sparkly and yummy.
  24. No folly here.
  25. I have never seen a salt like it before, and yes! it's a Sandy salt. Very cool glass.
  26. 8! rare and cool.
  27. Well hello there! I have no idea about these, apart from cute. :)))
  28. Beautiful. Post more photos to help with id, particularly the bottom, marked or not.
  29. Thomas you really are keeping the music alive, in all forms.
  30. I think kampy? or bottle gourd.
  31. These are very cool. Ho2 I am still amazed at how eclectic your collection is.
  32. You would wonder how glass this good could look better but here's the proof. I went oooh when I first saw this photo Michelle.
  33. She's not necessarily beautiful but she is quite wonderful. He was clearly a great modeler, the character is outstanding.
  34. Ahh, sublime.
  35. These are gorgeous. I think the backstamp is maybe a distributors name.
  36. Gorgeous glass. Hospodka certainly was the master at using worked clear glass and enclosing colour to highlight. I love them all and like Ivonne I haven't seen no 1 before. The colour combo of no.3 i...
  37. She would be perfect in that setting. Thank you Sylvie. Alfie thanks for your feminine appreciation :) Ta VL!
  38. It looks quite small. How many men would it have as crew?
  39. It's certainly a pretty thing to hold to your nose. I am so glad I live in a world with sewerage infrastructure! Any scent left? I would have thought ivory a bit porous but it's probably at least 150...
  40. This is so appealing to me Kevin. The finger marks, the extra line detail, scrumptious glaze and the splash of shiny glaze on the front. So nice!
  41. I think it may be jade. The striations look natural to me and jade rings are more a thing than glass rings.
  42. Maybe Inuit or native American?? The initials look like MB to me.
  43. He's a bit over it. Or maybe tired. Or just resting dog face.
  44. Lovely description thanks Jenni. There is movement in her isn't there! The birds are a sweet touch.
  45. Scott she is slimmer than your bronzes and as sweet as yours too. Thanks mate.
  46. Thanks Mani, lovely to hear from you!
  47. Col. Thanks for the links, and call me Karen :)
  48. Thanks Pacem
  49. Hi Kevin. I don't think it's Isamu Noguchi. I think it is outside his design style and I couldn't find a mark like this for him. Did he actually work in Japan or just the US?
  50. Humpen is such a cool name for this cool shape. Your descriptions are always a delight, Harry!
