Wow! Marinka, I had absolutely no idea there was so much to hand vases... and so many different types. Well done of a fascinating article, and great pics. I can hardly wait to see the book now. Thank you so very much for sharing this.  I'm going to move it to Glass, as Leni says above, it deserves a wider audience than the Cafe.

 :hiclp: again as so often I lack words: but: what a beautiful collection and forthcoming book, Marinka!
Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thank you all so much for your compliments, I feel humbled & honored to be praised by such knowledgeble people!
Pamela, your website is so amazing (& I know you have some hand vases ;)) I'm just blown away by your kind words about my article.
As mentioned, my gratitude goes out to Angela, for inviting me to contribute, & her great efforts with helping with research.
I'm just so thankful for the opportunity to share my collection, & my passion for it, with everyone, it's very exciting. :)
That I can raise awareness of the diversity & fascinatingly quirky appeal of hand vases is a real privilege.
Marcus, :)
as for a book on Peloton glass...well I only have 32 examples of it (as opposed to over 100 hands) so perhaps it will be better off being featured in a more general survey of Victorian art glass...I certainly have enough of that to fill a book!
Marinka.
More glass than class!

The Glass Museum now has a whole new front page for the official launch of Marinka's great article on hand vases at http://www.glass.co.nz
It has been revamped with new pictures and layout and a whole set of recently published books on glass.
My congratulations to Marinka for all her work in researching and collecting these lovely vases. As she says above, I somehow found myself buying some really lovely hand vases before we had even finished the article. Must be addictive.

I did write to Marinka a couple of times about this one to see if she wanted to bid, but maybe she's away at the moment?

I assume it was LE Smith?  In the final moments I stuck a bid on (knowing nothing about hand vases!), but didn't succeed in winning...just missed it.  ::)

It does look nice. Don't know if Marinka is away - but its a good time to take a holiday down here (as in mid-winter).
Be careful, Max, they are addictive!!
