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. OK, thanks for the correction.
  2. I am not sure how he kept the liquid look of that blue Phil, but it is fresh and alive! Thanks mate.
  3. Thomas, thanks my friend! Hope all is going well, stay safe.
  4. It is a standout piece here Manikin, and thanks!
  5. Thanks Harry! It's interesting that this slightly loose decor is from Hisatoshi, it was more of a Toshichi thing.
  6. Hey thanks Jenni, as usual, a generous comment. It is an uncommon one for Iwata.
  7. Both are so very cool. I love insects and would wear his in a flash, and that all locket is just neat!
  8. I'm grateful these are no longer required ill but they are fascinating. Nice find! I hope you are going OK over there, and yes, keep on your mask. Here in Aus we are watching the US and are sadden...
  9. You will work out very soon Salome that my jewellery knowledge is poor, but I like what I like, and this I like. I think it's European and quite old by the pin, but remember, I know very little. Th...
  10. The sale goddess was telling you to keep this beauty!
  11. The overlay spray is different and so lovely.
  12. Very interesting. And old!
  13. I love the crane, not so sure about the pun!
  14. It's a great brooch and never regret paying for it! Mary is Valentino97 and the best way to get her to have a look is to comment on one of her posts and ask. She is a knowledgeable and helpful pers...
  15. I find this vase quite beautiful and really interesting Harry, and I'm waiting for some other Czech glass collectors to comment. It looks so modern and so far out of what I know as period Czech glass....
  16. I think that's the period it was made.
  17. They are Japanese, probably Satsuma, and likely 1930s-40s. They show the god Kannon with the immortals. The raised design is called moriage and was a feature of some Satsuma works. I haven't checked...
  18. Libraries are magical places, and perhaps this one more so.
  19. Another Sherman shimmering stunner. Usual story!! Phil it is always a delight to hear from you and I hope you keep well and still drop in regularly. Your presence, and your jewellery of course, ...
  20. It certainly is the sweetest!
  21. RhineisFine your comments are always so interesting and informative. I thank you. Thanks for the info on Kakunodate and their use there of kabazaiku. I have been on a journey looking into these cra...
  22. I love this, particularly the way the brooch leaves rise from that set of oblong stones.
  23. Such a gorgeous blue fishy
  24. The bowls are joyful and uplifting. I am delighted with them Peggy!
  25. Very nice!
  26. I wouldn't have thought Victorian! I believe you of course, but it looks so much more modern to me. 60s even.
  27. The pink shelf will be fabulous. Look at all the beauties, augmented by this gorgeous newbie.
  28. No idea but it's very stylish.
  29. Interesting. What medium Monkey?
  30. Quirky as were so many Dyson pieces. Great find Vet!
  31. It's Japanese me thinks. A ukiyo-e or woodprint. Looks like an original not a machine reprint. Maybe do an image search it might show up.
  32. Nice find Bonnie! I love the filigree, different to most.
  33. I think $10 for that was a very good buy!
  34. That thermometer is fab. I hope you have a nice day too Vinyl!
  35. Mikey we will need more photos to help. More side views or close ups and definitely a shot of the bottom of the base.
  36. I totally agree on the contemporary glass look. It's a stunner Michelle. I know little about early 20thC glass but that shape seems unusual to me, and the base is eye opening. That decor though! Gor...
  37. Great fishy shape, and I love the back view!
  38. That is a hoot! What a wabbit!!
  39. See, this is why Sherman is so admired. All those beautiful different size stones, impeccably assembled. Very nice Jenni!
  40. All the hallmarks of great Murano glass. So much life in this, Jenni!
  41. Thanks Maureen! Glad you found this and commented :)
  42. They are a very attractive prospect, Modfather. Thanks for commenting.
  43. It’s a relatively poorly recognised part of the art glass world, Modfather, but interest has been growing. Happy to have given you some awareness.
  44. It’s a nice spatter I agree MF. Thanks
  45. Aaaah orange, not often seen in Murano glass, adored by the Japanese. Thanks Modfather.
  46. That's just so cool and wonderful!!
  47. Nice to hear from you Bonnie. Obviously still doing your fabulous efforts at bargain hunting .
  48. Fortunately it wasn't too difficult to clean up thanks six-0-one. Got lucky I guess. I'm pleased you like it!
  49. Thanks Maureen so glad you think this good!
  50. I can’t help here but I do love these little painted vases from Asia.
