Another big vase only this one's not green. It kind of reminds me of Tigger. It is approx 13½ high. There's also a riihimaki style vase next to it.

Bouncy bouncy, fun, fun, fun!

I know I've seen this next one someware before so I grabbed it at 50p. I'm not concerned about value, it has a dent on the rim. Concave polished pontil.

All these are what the dealers have left behind. I really need to set up a Dummy Stall if I want to get the best pieces.  :evil:

Any help on these would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Tigger looks like one I had with a pulled feather effect that I initially thought, rather optimistically, might be by Carlo Moretti.  Turned out to be possibly in the style of Moretti, and most likely Florentine (help from Ivo and Peter).  Quite a few of these on eBay at the time.

Your 50p vase is a bit of a cracker! :mrgreen:  I'll be interested to see what this turns out to be. :lol:

Actually, these items on this post are only the one's that i know nothing about. Would it be rude if i showed you the one's that I did know about?

Here's me being rude.  :arrow:

Imperial box thingy (don't know what to call it)

Ooh, lovely Holmegaard decanter. Have been trying to get my mits on a smoke glass one, but they always seem to go for over £20 (which is my kluk kluk decanter price limit).

Although I was *very* fortunate to find in a shop yesterday an Aristocrat decanter, which I'd been scavenging for recently, for £50 being sold as Blenko!  :shock:

Mine's a clear one which cost me a whole £1 at a sale in the village hall here a couple of years back! :) I'm on the lookout for the green and blue ones at a reasonable price as well... I don't particularly like smoked glass though. http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-23

Having said that I just found a smoked glass tankard which I bought as it looks like a chevron optic rib pattern in it (if that makes sense!) which I thought was interesting. It has a polished pontil ring in the base, and is a nice well-made piece - no idea who made it though - I'll dig the camera out and post a photo later in case anyone can recognise it. My son loves glass tankards so I thought he may like to add it to his glass collection (mostly he has rummers - about 40 of them so far! - I'll have soooooo much more space when he finally leaves home and takes them all with him!!!)  :lol:

I've only got three of them, one's bottle green with a scandic crown stopper, one's sage green and the other is a really nice kingfisher blue. The cheapest I've managed to get one for is about £14, tho.  :(

The sage green one is quite a rare one done for Plumrose (of tinned meat reknown). I mentioned it somewhere on here a while back. It's my favourite of the three.

I remember seeing your Plumrose one... interesting, as I'd not heard of such decanters before.  I can't begin to imagine the connection between Plumrose and decanters!  :lol:   I think the kluk kluk's are great fun though... I do like quirky decanters. :) One of my other favourites is the duck decanter... which lets the wine breathe... and because it doesn't seal means you have to finish all the contents!  :lol:  (a very good excuse!!!) :wink: http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-24

I paid £5 for my decanter but i'll admit to not knowing what it was when I bought it.  :oops:

The Plumrose decanter was given out to the celeb chefs of the day to try and get them tipsy enough to recommend tinned chopped pork and ham in their cookbooks, I assume?  :D

I'm not familiar with the duck decanter. Sounds fun, though. I'll google it and see what happens!  :)

Google yielded duck decanters. I've seen these before, but didn't know what they were called. They are fun, aren't they?

Although... some of them do look a little like they belong in a hospital for those folk who can't make it to the bathroom...

I don't like the urinal-effect ones - is enough to put anyone off their wine!!!  :lol:
