I have works from the cheapest of production glass to one off designer pieces; it's all great to me! (Read more)

  1. Roemer shape and the enamel work is very Germanic.
  2. Nicely made. Is that flared lip a Blenko thing Rose? Not my area :(
  3. It really sets each apart; dad is a big vase, mum is very voluptuous, baby is perfect and petite.an excellent collection there Alain!
  4. Well defended!!! Looks great on the lamp. Almost art deco in shape so would fit well with your collection!
  5. Coooool!!!!
  6. Alan, such beauties you have!
  7. I don't think Scandinavian, they rarely did this style with the hot worked rim points, and they weren't big on orange either. It may be Italian or possibly Japanese.
  8. Ken, that is the most gorgeous brooch. What great designers and makers Trifari had.
  9. Have you tried any of the points yet? Even just pressure? That's a cool thing to find. As, loooong fingers on the hand. Not Trump then :)
  10. Thanks PCC, you are right there. Lots of work in this!
  11. Thanks Pascale. You know how it is; we collect lots and sometimes a very special piece comes along. Very happy :)
  12. Thanks Newfld, it seems to glow.
  13. Hi Mike! The fishing net is a good point; such an important tool for the Japanese. Maybe Iwata was thinking that! Thanks for the comment and idea.
  14. Ivonne that's a pertinent comment. Lots of Japanese glass is made with traditional pottery styling.
  15. Thanks Alan. You may have seen it on a Facebook glass group.
  16. Thanks! Not this good, look at the lighting in these, masterful.
  17. Heckin good mate! Just been super busy so have been in and out of here a bit. You? Seems you do the same; arrive, have a chat or two, then swan off to do whatever. I haven't time to be here daily bu...
  18. It's wonderful Pascale! Well done. I never knew the bridge pillars could polish up so well lol!
  19. Look at that muffin dog you have!
  20. Wowee! Have you got a great eye o what Judy!! Well done on this beauty.
  21. Swoon; that glaze! The shape!
  22. A bit weird Jan being struck off. I can't imagine her misbehaving! I like the skippers, we don't see anything like them here.
  23. Nice find, and cheap Murano (genuine) glass for that!!
  24. Smile piece!!
  25. Aren't they elegant!. I can see the marcasite which probably dates these to 50s/60s. Are the red stones glass do you think?
  26. Cool. We all love the hunt!
  27. I love this watch, everything about it!
  28. It looks more like gold to me than brass. Do you think the stone may be glass? I hope our expert collectors see this, it is beautiful and old. I'm sure they would have a date range and more info.
  29. Maybe Czech?
  30. Wow, great ring. I love the happiness of it, and it's interesting they used gold and diamonds. Not cheap costume jewellery for sue!
  31. I love seahorses - these brooches are fab.
  32. I have a great turtle from Hawaii too, brought back by a dear friend. Goes well with your gorgeous necklace!
  33. Cute as dog Jim. Glad you like the planter- hope it made you smile!
  34. Thanks ThriftStoreAddict (aren't we all!)
  35. Cheers dear!
  36. I rarely see even the Prouds rings around; I keep looking! Thanks for the info Jewels, you clearly have a wealth of knowledge.
  37. WOW! Amazing pieces Ivonne! I can see the ice/earth/growth imagery so well. The scrolls on the side of the larger one are masterful.
  38. It's a great sign - looks fast!
  39. I have never, ever, seen such a thing here in Australia! Perhaps it was made in Asia and sold here in the tourist stores (which I admit I never visit). I quite like it! The 'roos are well modeled.
  40. That's special! I love the colourful glazes they used. Where they particular to the island?
  41. I have always wondered - what does walleye mean?
  42. Is that panel velvet? Wow.
  43. Are you tapping? Thagomizer lol!!!!
  44. I love the colours on this!
  45. Geez BB2 I thought you were missing in action! Obviously not....
  46. Awesome selections from the dollar box!
  47. Ms Crystal, what's not to love about a dangle lol. Thanks!
  48. Thanks Lentilka for picking a favourite and giving some love!
  49. Ken, you are not alone. It's a great piece and quite different to others. Thanks for visiting mate.
  50. Lol IronLace! We were so grown up with our big clothes and hair in the80s!! I agree, glass beads get me more than metal jewellery, and I am often testing things I find to see if they are glass! Thank...
