Er .... Just one more (another example of 'more is more'  :-[ )   This theme is cut glass, in case you couldn't work it out!   :ooh:

I do 'more is more' as well  ;D
these are in the bathroom - it's bright pink, with a black and white chequerboard floor so I think the cased vases look great in there.

Wow!  I love that hot pink bathroom!   :sun:  You're right, those vases look superb!  :D  I really am missing a trick here, not having any glass displayed in the bathroom!  (Yet  >:D

Though I've shown a similar picture a few months ago, this is how my glass is currently displayed.  My collection is mingled among other bits and bobs so that 'someone' doesn't really notice. It's limited to the living room wall unit, a small corner cupboard in the kitchen, and my bedroom (no photo of that, as the room is too small to get an adequate photograph of my glass).

By the way, as of yesterday and thanks to one very sweet soul, my Wedgwood owl collection is now complete.  I've got three owls which, in my opinion, is the most perfect of numbers to have.  I am a very satisfied woman. ;D

This thread gets better by the minute....Anik, no, you haven't got a complete Wedgwood Owl collection...you havent got a blue one, a red one nor an amber one....yet!! Or a clear one!! :usd:
m, please be careful not to fling your towel around won't you....those beautiful pieces are awfully close to the edge.....but I adore the colors...amazing! :rah:

The view above my kitchen sink, it's looking a tad threadbare at present, I recently removed a load of candlesticks for 're-homing'. Decanters live on the microwave. :D

It's a very, very scarce piece, made by Michael Harris, Greg.
It's utterly fabulous, one of my very best pieces - and it's really, really cuddly - you can hold it in your arms like a baby - but it's better behaved. :sun:
Ron Wheeler recently found and sold a signed one.

(he using an image of it as his collector's club membership card - see here:-

http://www.artiusglass.co.uk/id32.html

Peter Elliot had one which he sold perhaps a couple of years ago - it was at the same Fair as Ron sold his first signed Crizzle Stone. Over the years I have been told of two others - one slightly smaller but signed, and there's mine. So only 5 are known. And two of those are hearsay!

It's from very early on at Mdina - it's in "plain" amethyst glass, with no silver salts included.


Hi Sue, - Don't know if you've seen this one for sale at present....

I thought you might like to see the 'holding' cupboard as you have let us see some of the less 'themed' items you have.  It isn't the best picture,  but shows the love of glass animals I have.... :sun:

Oh yes, and I don't collect jugs.....I wonder what the large green one is, and the bubbly yellow one??? :usd:
