Hi Christine :hi:
I think we have some simlar tastes!!  Did your collection start out with green glass??  mine did, and I have a green glass art nouveau clock like the two you have.  I also have it in brown...infact two of them.  There is a tale attached to one of them, and if you twist my arm, I will relate!!
You have a wonderful collection....in fact everyone does.  

I have decided to take some more pics of all my animals, so will post them on here to redress the vases/critters balance!! :sun:

Hi John
The IOWSG blue and white swirl charger is 42cm in diameter, it has the flame mark on the pontil which is quite interesting as ive been told that most blue and white swirl has the coachbolt mark, but then saying that my blue and white globe vase also has the flame mark.
This is the most expensive piece (as in what i have paid) in my whole collection, i got it at a charity auction, and paid a very good sum for it.
I am going to get some better pictures of it to put on my picasa album as the ones on there currently are not very good

My collection started out as uranium glass rather than green then expanded to carnival glass (now in store and for disposal) and then to paperweights, odd non-U glasses and Mdina. The bulk of it is uranium glass in all its colours.

Anne's right, it's by Adam Aaronson  ;D  We saw it made at the inaugural meeting of 'The London Glassaholics', and Adam inscribed the base with all our names  :girlcheer:

That's a 'Spirale' vase by Peter Layton, Rosie.  And no, I don't keep the usable stuff hidden in a normal cupboard. The bottom shelves of the cabinet in the centre and right pictures are glasses we use all the time, mixed in with the Whitefriars Ruby pieces :D

Oh Leni,  top award for bravery, but maybe you are right, these things should be used......actually, I do use a lot of my art deco green glass, so maybe I am a bit normal after all!! :usd:

AA sounds like a Good Egg to do all those signatures for you......I haven't met him yet, maybe at the next glass fair if he attends.

The Spirale vase by Peter Layton is gorgeous,  I would love to see a close up of it next time you get it down to du** it!

Thank you everybody once again :kissy:....this has been an amazing thread....thank you Astrid.  :kissy:
