  1. That breaks my heart! I've had some bad luck lately with shipping (3 pieces in a row arrived broken) but nothing with that kind of age and history lost its life in transit. RIP, gorgeous - you'll be m...
  2. Welcome, Kate! Can you give us an idea of the size?
  3. It's by Ann and/or Goran Warff (Kosta 67982 Warff). I see them listed separately and together on some designs.
  4. These are lovely! There are still versions of this teardrop sculpture being made today. I sometimes see both smaller and larger versions available for sale on eBay as contemporary pieces. I'm not s...
  5. I don't have the book mentioned (to check out the reference) but here's an auction on eBay citing the maker: http://www.ebay.com/itm/D-M-CHRYSANTHEMUM-BOWL-SIGNED-DUNCAN-GLASS-/253094381351?
  6. These are beautiful, Suzie!
  7. I have a soft spot for bowls in this shape! Another option is IKEA (made in China, I think). They've sold bowls like this in a variety of colors. The similar-looking Selandia bowls from Holmegaard are...
  8. @ Karen: I think Imperial closed their doors sometime in the 80's.
  9. You're welcome!
  10. You're welcome! And no, sorry - not Finnish. But way back when I created this name for an email address as a joke, I was an SWF. : )
  11. Always good to hear those three little words: Hey, that's Loetz!
  12. I think it's a Gibson Glass ring holder. The date looks like 1996 to me.
  13. Here's some info: http://www.abelmanartglass.com/
  14. Nice score! It's Stuart Abelman.
  15. Man, that's just glorious!
  16. Here's some info and some other examples: http://www.cobaltfinearts.com/artist.php?artist_id=98
  17. Gorgeous! It's by Tom Philabaum.
  18. Lovely! The signature reads 'Orrefors' in the last picture - it's upside down though.
  19. I'm so sorry to hear this. I was thinking about Anne last week when I realized she hadn't posted for a while. I was hoping it was just a temporary setback and nothing more serious. My condolences t...
  20. You're welcome. : )
  21. The design looks like Esteban Prieto's work but his signatures are... unusual... sometimes. http://www.prietoglass.com/
  22. That's good info, Wow22. Swedian: keep in mind that you should always try to verify any info that comes from the internet. It's usually a good idea to treat any glass attribution as an educated gue...
  23. I've seen it in emerald green as well but I can't keep the Pinterest pages open long enough to copy the links. It's really lovely!
  24. Here's one in ruby, listed as Imperlux: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Peacock-Vase-Cut-to-Clear-Ruby-Red-Imperlux-Faceted-Ball-Pedestal-Signed-14-/322519947290?
  25. It reminds me of the figurines I see from FM Konstglas: http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=4730 https://www.etsy.com/listing/506939576/owl-art-gla...
  26. This isn't really my area but it looks like the attribution you received was good: https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-us/auction-catalogues/dumouchelles/catalogue-id-srdum10037/lot-f7afa04b-c4a5-4b91-...
  27. A candleholder maybe? Anytime I see something shaped like this with an opening on both sides, I assume it's for two different sized candles.
  28. It reminds me of something Stromberg would have made (like the one in the link below) but I don't recognize that mark. Wish I could be more help! http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/store/index.php?mai...
  29. I can't see it very well on my phone but I think it's Blenko #49. I've added a link to a picture of that decanter (it's the last one on the page). I've seen some dating back to when it was origina...
  30. Like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/152508719573?
  31. It reminds me a little of Paul Kedelv's Coquille bowls for Flygsfors but I think they're usually signed. Gorgeous color!
  32. You're very welcome, Carol!
  33. You're welcome!
  34. Stangl Pottery was made near Trenton, NJ from about 1930 until the late 1970's. The Antique Gold line (gold over green) was designed in the 1950's and it was available (as far as I know) until the com...
  35. Dave Fetty's pieces for Fenton are usually signed 'DLF' but I thought all of those had 'Fenton' written under the initials. Maybe someone else will be able to shed some light on the other mark.
  36. Another option is Royal Gallery (Poland). They made a similar shape but I usually see examples of those as a combination of blue and green. I'm on my phone so I can't see a lot of detail. You may want...
  37. You're welcome!
  38. Oops, that was supposed to be 'Palmqvist'! : )
  39. It's Orrefors. The first two letters are 'of' (Orrefors), the next letter is P (for designer Sven Palqvist) and the numbers (2683) date the piece to the early 1940's. Very pretty!
  40. You're welcome! And you could always ask him/them about the title via Facebook if you don't have any luck finding it yourself. : )
  41. Here's a link with some more info and a few examples for sale: http://www.prismcontemporary.com/Artists/GalazkaR/GalazkaR.html
  42. Here are a few links I found on Miroslaw Stankiewicz. Based on the info listed on the first link, this piece would be dated after 1999. http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/art-glass-vase-stan-mir...
  43. No problem! Welcome to CW!
  44. The signature I usually see is very short - typically only the first two or three letters are legible. It sort of trails off after that. I always assumed the signed pieces were the older ones but I ma...
  45. Could the name be Sydenstricker? http://www.ebay.ie/itm/152444231492?
  46. Love this! They remind me of little lobster claws.
  47. You're welcome. I especially love it in the Blenko turquoise - sometimes a little more blue, sometimes a little more green (but always stunning). That's probably why they used that color for so many y...
  48. It's Blenko 6615...and it's gorgeous! http://www.blenkoproject.org/1966
  49. You're welcome. I have a couple of their square candleholders in blue and green sommerso. They're beautiful in person. As you can see from the link below, they get misidentified as Flavio Poli pieces ...
  50. I think it's by Fifth Avenue Crystal. The pattern is called Saturn. You may need to look at the link to see if it matches exactly: http://www.ebay.com/itm/351958939005?
