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. Thanks raven :)
  2. A little wonder indeed Peggy. Hope the move is complete and is working out well. Yeah, I'm sure there are still some boxes of glass to unpack! :))
  3. Ooooh, fantastic!
  4. Thing was just one of the fab characters on Addams Family, and I always wanted one in my house. I hope he behaves for you!
  5. I love this one Bill, such a great shape. The blue is an interesting shade, and the whole is very art deco. Nice find! Well remembered too :)
  6. I can seee this here in my kitchen, such a lovely English bowl. The fruit are great!
  7. Proper music.
  8. I agree with tim-tim. Better than good!
  9. Jim, great comment. I can hope for another one day, but am so content now and forever if I don't.
  10. IL, it's taken years and lots of searching for one I could afford, in the meantime watching prices go up and regretting others I missed. I am over that now, and this one is perfect for me. I keep hol...
  11. It has a very impressionist look I think Pascale, and Klimt too with it's dotty beauty. Thanks for being so happy for me!
  12. Thanks Harry, I'm sure you know how influential Fujita has been.
  13. It's very Japanese I agree Ivonne, and thanks for our appreciation!
  14. A rich and yummy cake Bill. Thanks mate!
  15. Anik we all have that one piece, this was mine. Lots of sales of lesser glass to cover it's cost!
  16. Kevin - yeah
  17. Of course you have something lovely to say Jenni! I appreciate your happiness for me :)
  18. Thanks Jude. It does feel great indeed!
  19. Thanks Malkey, I hope you are traveling well. I sure am please to have this beauty!
  20. Genius for sure. The balance between precise skill in the colour and base with the wonky bowl is inspired.
  21. I adore opalescent glass as a feature, and the rim on this is so lovely.
  22. It's delightful!
  23. Thanks for the appreciation of our wildlife everyone. Many thanks for commenting to: Jim Roycroft Lauren Jude and Thomas
  24. A spring prize!
  25. After all your fantastic posts, I want to come and visit and act out a fire with others, all of us in fire gear and peddling around and listening to the chief's orders and such.
  26. Wow! This is such a great set; stunning and humorous design, perfect porcelain. I'm a tad envious :)
  27. That often happens to me too Rose, the camera has better eyes :) It's an absolutely stunning brooch. Go Coro!
  28. With ICS it is hard to identify for artist. I think that backstamp is the export to US one, circa 1930s. Perhaps post it on the facebook page Midcentury Italian Ceramic and Bitossi Collectors, https:...
  29. Maybe a KJ?
  30. I am absorbed by the dress, amazing. As you say, great earrings too.
  31. Kyutee!
  32. I can feel the guilt from here Fort. Maybe next year you could go back to the dealer and give him some more dollars. Maybe not. Enjoy your bargain, it is so cool. With the box!
  33. What a buy. Gorgeous Salviati glass piece. It deserves the best placed within.
  34. A perfect poodle!
  35. Thanks Phil, King parrots are one of my favourites. They are sweet and shy, not belligerent and loud like some of the other parrots. The male's red chest is an incredibly intense red that didn't show ...
  36. Thanks everyone, I know how lucky I am. At night I lie in bed and can here at least 3 owls and a tawny frogmouth (a nightjar) hooting in the bush. It's a special thing. Pascale, we use the Weber a ...
  37. Gorgeous indeed.
  38. Great find Jude, such a great brooch and now you are part of The Estruscan Urn Owners :)
  39. So lovely! Cool you have found a good op shop locally - it truly is a heavenly home!
  40. I guess this is a dying trade (or dead almost even now). I know whenever an organ at a cathedral or town hall is restored it's many years work. Very interesting post AO!
  41. The setting is so modern and interesting.
  42. It's a funky little number Harry. Glad you kept photos so we can see. When I first started collecting glass I remember a comment from a collector that glass knowledge was hard gained, and there will ...
  43. I have never seen 6in figures likes this, they must be fun! I think the rifle is not going to fire safely.
  44. Whoever, they designed well!
  45. Good job Thomas, your personal generosity on display (again!).
  46. What spiffing lives they seemed to have!
  47. Amber ambrosial pear....yum.
  48. Pewter has been used a long time, it may be quite old. Nice to have Mum's stuff.
  49. Old, still wonderful.
  50. Great solve Slackjack, and it's a very neat set Wagnerlisa!
