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. Lots of work in that
  2. Lost of this sort of animal we’re made in India for export through the 70s. I’m not sure if this is one but it’s pretty cool.
  3. That must have glowed at you from the op shop entrance!
  4. This is very interesting! Large spatter, big field of gold, different shape, gold trailing. It’s not typical of any maker I have seen before! Puzzling and pulchritudinous
  5. Thank you Sylvia, it is a very calm and soothing scene
  6. This is a beautiful pig, colour, shape, attitude.
  7. Aw, a blue horse, rocking!
  8. Wow, complex, well made, just beautiful. Those leaves!!
  9. I guess you are now joining Scott's broken toe club?
  10. You are a very clever finder!
  11. I missed this before Dave, came here now from Lainie's garden bracelet. This is so very cool!
  12. Laini this is gorgeous!
  13. Thanks Ms Share! It's so sweet, and different, and Mt Fuji looks over them all.
  14. Serene it is, Kevin. I like your Manga comment. The scene is very different to the norm which is why I picked it up. Yeah, I missed out on Wenty too.
  15. Watchsearcher I couldn't decide either if the white animal was a dog or sheep but I have decided dog. Japan really has very few sheep, they are not farmed there much at all, and it just seems incongru...
  16. Searching, you know I did procrastinate in the shop, I just have so much stuff here, but I am so pleased now I did. Here at home it fits in. Thanks for your comment and love
  17. Thanks Jenni, as Kevin said serene is the perfect word. As usual, you say the right thing!
  18. Wow, that's still quite a few living there!
  19. Dav2no1 is THE MAN
  20. You seem to find a lot of great Japanese wares around you Kevin. Is there a large Japanese community nearby, or maybe returned service people who may have been stationed there? Whatever, this is a c...
  21. Thanks Scott and Mani, glad you like her too!
  22. Glad you got to Wenty Marin and found such a rarity. Sorry I missed it and you .
  23. I love the cover art for this album.
  24. It's a pancake set! Very cool.
  25. It's all good and I love seeing your fantastic finds. Just letting you know Apostata sometimes comes across as a bit angry and that's not his intention. He can be very direct :)))
  26. Junkman, Apostata knows so much about Asian artefacts (and others) He has a front of mind way of telling us stuff and English is not his first language. His opinions are worthwhile.
  27. Thanks!
  28. Beautiful
  29. That is amazingly fine cloisonné work.
  30. Your garage sales seem miles ahead of any near here. I love the cane lady’s head and the nouveau powder box.
  31. Pewter? Aluminium? Good style to it
  32. Not the vulture! Missing the vulture! I had to look up what you meant and I wasn’t disappointed.
  33. An unusual find for sure in our op shops. I can count on one hand the times I have seen anything from the USA. They are very cool, I love the cats.
  34. It’s well moulded so not a cheaply made one. No idea but that leprechaun means trouble!
  35. As ever, you are so clever! I love this amalgam Pascale.
  36. These are gorgeous.
  37. I missed this for Halloween. I like the drain hole, even without a critter.
  38. So for the ignorant here, why is it called a bean pot? Also, age? Do you think early20th or so Kevin?
  39. If I was a poet I would say something about stars in the night sky, but I’m not.
  40. Apostata, well done! I thought it was Japanese and started reading the Gotheborg and thought Chinese? No! I get it now, market made pretence. Still I like it.
  41. The edge finish!
  42. Yeah the figurines are , um, less than…. This is pretty cool however!
  43. It’s a very cool piece Scott and I love the look and feel of pate de verse. Glad you liked it too, and many thanks for your comment
  44. Thanks Scott
  45. It is Kev, thanks!
  46. Thanks Congcu, and yes, probably a lemur. Monkeys are not my specialty clearly.
  47. Thanks Jenni, and as Congcu says, yeah, probably a lemur. I should have known that after laughing at King Julian!! I can no longer unthink that....
  48. I know Kevin! It's very lanky and fine but I've managed to not get it bashed up by 5 kilo lumps of Japanese glass!! It has a rattle which is sweet, and I wonder if a plug of clay is inside it from...
  49. You prompted me: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/311203-cmielw-porcelain-poland-monkey
  50. I have a Cmielow monkey here, I must post it! I love the flow of these creatures.
