The majority of my piecI am a collector of glass, I have a diverse collection, the majority from the late 19th century to mid 20th century, a few pieces are newer. The majority of my pieces are Scandinavian, my mother came to the USA from Sweden and her father owned Reijmyra Glasbruk before WWI, when they really made exquisite pieces. My father, a glass engineer, immigrated from India, (ergo the screen name Swedian, 1/2 and 1/2, first generation American) So they met and their love and collections multiplied! I have added over the years from Sweden, and have tried to downsize, yet there is that "incredible deal" you can't turn down from the flea market, thrift shop, etc....my husband started collecting minerals and we have an incredible selection of them, yet my knowledge is in the neophyte stage. Thank you for this lovely website and the wonderful sharing, pictures and advice, I look forward to interacting with those that have the passion I have for glass, ceramics and eclectic artistic iitems.
