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. Nice. Glowers.
  2. A parliament of beautiful owls.
  3. Sizable too for a vase of this period! Me, I love the odd, and the jolie laide.
  4. That shape!
  5. Swoon, Scott. These are just divine.
  6. The one centre front photo 2 is Egyptian glass. IRice acquired much of their stock from either Czechoslavakia or Japan. I think most of those in photo 1 are Czech. In photo 2 the printed one left may...
  7. I like it lots too!
  8. It's a big beauty, bright eyes.
  9. He is a Wagtail Lauren!!
  10. I love this brooch! It is a perfect design.
  11. Hey! I drove a Wolseley 1500 for about 6 years in the 1980s. It was not a big performer but had a certain Pommy style to it, lovely wood rain trim. They look better with wider tyres.....
  12. It's lovely, and gifts this good are wonderful. Looks so nice in your spring garden.
  13. I am pretty sure it's Asian made, possibly from one of the better Chinese makers. The style is a bit like some Japanese glass I own although I am sure it's not Japanese. Cues are the size, spatter, ...
  14. Nice one Surf! It's got a bit of a Skrdlovice look about it but I don't think its. Perhaps Polish? Just stabbing in the dark really, but it's such a great piece.
  15. Yeah Scott, I usually avoid resin too, but this was a had to have. Thanks for the love and comment.
  16. Ooh, Lisa, I must keep being curious! And now I see it is probably a big tulip with little tulips. I love CW people and their good eye. Thanks!
  17. I will keep it Peggy because it is beautiful, and I think special. Thanks for your thoughts.
  18. I agree IL it is special. Thanks.
  19. So Ken, maybe they aren’t cabbage leaves like I thought, but big petals! That’s a beautiful idea, thanks so much!
  20. Hey there Jenni, thanks! I like the cabbage -y leaves , and how they overlap. The tulips add to them well.
  21. Thanks so much MrsT, I’m glad you like it too.
  22. Cool, thanks.
  23. An incredible collection. And as Gillian says, also my favourite small things collection. Great posts Neil. Thanks. Karen
  24. The working in these is amazing, Great silversmithing and I can imagine were only for better watches. Sorry for my ignorance: would these have been attached to the watch chain, and if so, where?
  25. Is the clear stone in your favourites quartz crystal do you think?
  26. How good! I love teh way they are cut and designed to lean back onto the books. So clever and stylish.
  27. That is a really cool, detailed set. I would have to guess these were not cheap in their day? Even less now too.
  28. I think the brooch is outstanding, and even puts the lass behind it. I do love the lucky trunk up lass ele though.
  29. I adore the colours on this bird, it's restful and beautiful.
  30. I like Pauly. And the tractors.
  31. How wonderful! Happy about your find.
  32. You gotta know what you are looking at. Nice find Ken!
  33. That's gorgeous!
  34. Great photos, love the lattice.
  35. Thanks Sweetie!
  36. Wenty misses you too, Marty. Peggy will know about this vase IL, I reckon. She is the spatter specialist :)
  37. He is magnificent, and his adventures around town look spiffing. I think Murano, Malkey. Go well friend.
  38. I can't really say it's a regular Japanese colour blend Peggy, it's just different enough to be Japanese, if you follow my logic! Apart from when I have posted it, mainly only family have seen it and...
  39. That's cool, and thanks all for the translation.
  40. The roses on it certainly are stunning!
  41. I like looking at collections like this, so much, so varied. Love the dressing table set!
  42. Nice stuff! I hope you use it from time to time. I get the dusting thing, it's a pain and I always put off washing my glass. When I do I am amazed how much better it looks, but it doesn't make me any...
  43. Pretty so pretty.
  44. I love the random wire in this one!
  45. I am always astonished at how many wonderful things you pick up for so little, Adele. I would be stunned to find anything like this here, and if it were in an op shop they would have $50 on it. So lo...
  46. Jim I used to put old measurements in as well as metric but now I just leave size to your imagination lol! Thanks for loving my new things.
  47. Like coral or something hey Scott. Thanks for the love and comment.
  48. Thanks Lisa, very different glass to your usual. I am still amazed at what a flexible media glass is.
  49. Thanks Ivonne, always happy to hear from you. Have you some more lovely Polish glass to post? It’s always a delight to see things we don’t get down here.
  50. Very cute pair you have and this is gorgeous. Any idea of origin?
