Decorated goblets
« on: February 18, 2011, 05:42:48 PM »
I just want to share with you some shoots of some goblets I did today.
I want to pick 5 pieces (only the goblets, not the bigger vases) for my own private collection... Any advice how to choose?
5 of the same color? or all different?
I love them!

Ciao

An understandable dilemma, Alex. They are lovely. Personally I´m a friend of diversity and
therefore I´d choose 5 pieces, which are as different as possible. My favorites would be in
the second and third picture though, with the light purple cornucopia-stemmed glass
being top of my list. Thanks for sharing!  :)

oh Alex, wonderful,

my pick 1    cornucopia stem
           2    big goblet with what looks like an octopus stem
           3    blue goblet in 1st pic with gold twist stem, the glass in the foreground.
           4    3rd pic, large goblet with flower decoration to stem
           5    clear glass goblet half in the 3rd pic to the right.


lovely collection.

this is naughty of me to ask in your post,
but if you get a chance plz look at "tall acid finish vase" to see if you recognize the signature.

all the best Alex
