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. They are very cool. The faces are painted so well, and have so much personality!
  2. Heckin awesome!! You know I have some Japanese swans here that would feel quite diminished living near this. A justifiably proud swan (and owner).
  3. Such a lovely post, and I can see why it appealed so much as a kid. Lovely dusty pink, beautiful script, the lid is gorgeous, and I bet it smells lovely too!
  4. That's a really great trophy Alan, looks good. Beautiful horse sculpture.
  5. It's been hard days IL, but I hope knowing your Mum's love and acceptance of you helps, even if the big hole left with her passing seems so dark. She has some great wall pockets there; and I immedia...
  6. That is a delightful photo!
  7. I love the abstract form of this one Worthit!
  8. Those swallows! So beautiful Michelle!
  9. A beautiful mirrored pair Michelle.
  10. A National Treasure. You are fortunate to have his work.
  11. Modernist!
  12. Wow. Is this a court scene?
  13. I am so enjoying your exquisite Japanese works.Thanks!
  14. I think it's an awl of some sort too, and so much work in it! I am amazed at the time taken back then to make utilitarian items beautiful. They were meant to be used and cared for.
  15. Yeah, gorgeous, and my poxy old eyes see nothing missing, so clearly, no need to fix it!!
  16. This IS interesting, and fun too! Me, I'm an orange plastics sort of girl :)
  17. I want to eat these! They are an absolute delight to see, I can see why they make you happy.
  18. The painting on this is exquisite. The family view, with child, the boat, the mussel basket, it's a beauty. And the work in the panels and neck; wow!
  19. Kanahwa Glass doesn't seem to ever have made it to Aus, which is a pity, because their animals are great. For a small piece, this is such a beautiful beaver; lovely shape, and a gorgeous colour mix. L...
  20. Now that is a gorgeous piece if Japanese art!
  21. Action Boy looks like he can dance.
  22. Love this one!
  23. Green glass is my favourite, and a beauty like this, with nature, is a delight to behold. Thanks for the feel good photos Malkey! I hope the glass helps you too!
  24. It's a really cool design, and congrats on finding the patent. Looks new too!
  25. He's got a great mournful face! A sweetie. I too think the vase is a beauty!
  26. A beautiful save!
  27. Yeah, Toshichi Iwata was a very loose glass maker generally, and influenced the whole genre. The Italians are generally a bit controlled. Iwata could do the control stuff too, just rathered not.
  28. Gotta love orange. Thanks for the vote Eileen!
  29. Good word enervating. One of those ones that sounds the opposite of it's meaning. Thanks Peggy!
  30. Ken is first offer for the yellow - all good thanks mate!
  31. Blue for you Jenni :))
  32. many thanks Anik!
  33. Thanks IL. Most of the major Japanese glass companies made handkerchief bowls in the 60s and 70s, and although they are all similar each has their own style. Iwata generally was a bit looser, if you ...
  34. Quality costs, and these Bergman bronzes are top.
  35. I would think Czech Adele. Awesome glass beads; fleece would never have looked better!
  36. It has a very auto/aero design style to it. Fantastic! I know someone who would love this very much.
  37. A star piece of MCM. Love this!
  38. OMFG! You are right! Divine!!
  39. Learning again, I had never heard of John Derbyshire. The things I don't know! Glad I don't know what I don't know...
  40. Yay Fran! You've got a beauty there!
  41. Well done truthordare! I would have bid even if it was only plated, it's so lovely.
  42. What a good man our Malkey is. He's gifted you a beauty, and I'm sure it's in safe and appropriate hands.
  43. It's an extraordinary work! It appears to be a Chinese dragon of high order, so designed for nobility or high ranking official. Any idea of the wood type?
  44. Fused glass is hard to do really well, and he sure has. Quite complex design here with an apparently simple result. That takes a lot of creative design. You are fortunate to have these.
  45. Rearranging is always exciting when I find things forgotten! Looking goooood Trey.
  46. Congratulations on finding the rare one!
  47. I am still blown away by this brooch. A treasure.
  48. Gorgeous Monet.
  49. I'm somehow really amused by the thought of a rattle being available online. How many people would need one?! I am sure there are many who would have trouble entering your house with this rattler on...
  50. Weirdly beautiful this one! It works well!!
