I'm loving the 'less is more' theme  - my favourite.  I like to see the outline and the colour of each piece of glass but all the display are just amazing!  David I love the display of Riihimaen Lasi vases.  Craig, they're all gorgeous,  you have a beautiful collection (especially love the opaline/alabastro perfume bottle) but please tell me the little pot under the modernist lamp isn't glass or I'll have a serious envy attack  :mrgreen:  It's really beautiful.

Craig:  I'd say your  philosophy is more "gorgeous is gorgeous" more than "less is more." And, to reveal my own bias, wonderfully eclectic.

Thanks to everyone whose posted so far, particularly Astrid, who started the thread. I've really enjoyed seeing everybody's glass, and I've also enjoyed looking at at my arrangements again. After leaving the displays pretty static for a few months, I've found I'm going back and rearranging all the shelves, some in a big way, some in a minor way,  that were in the original photographs.  The last set includes the rest of the themed displays from my cave, er, room. The other glass will stay unrecognized for now.

m... Are you referring to the skull in the middle under the copper bodied lamp?
  
The perfumes are all Peggy's, which is a collection she has accumulated through gifts from me.... I believe the Alabasto piece is a Seguso piece...... The two on the bottom shelf to the left and right of the center post are both Seguso with a period label.... :thup:

Rosieposie... yes the dancer has a head....... It is just stuck in the clouds......   :)

David... Thanks.... and I love eclectic....  in all that I collect..... not just glass.....

Craig

Edited in:  Yes... a BIG THANKS to Astrid.....  the pics and exchange in this thread have been great fun!!!

ooh  ;D yes I did, I've enlarged the pic now and I can see it better - it's fab!  You're going to say something macabre about it now I've said that  :24:

Rosieposie & Anik: thanks, the other shelves seem to have become a dumping ground for paperwork...which is ok as when I glance up above my screen, I only see the top shelf  8)

David: The plate is by Willy Johansson for Hadeland, more pics: clicky here  :)

glassobsessed: all because of that one vase, the following collection in these two pics is all your fault! lol  ;)
I know it's not the biggest Alsterfors collection out there though...

David, I really love the gold and purple (kinda) bowl in the first shot and the opaline/pink basket in the third shot. I love it all, but those two really speak to me loudly.....

Dan,  I love your shelves.....

m... here are some pics of it...  nothing Macabre to say... It is one of my favorite pieces... It is an old piece..... the snake is crawling in and out of the skull in an attempt to get to the frog, which is the finial on the lid. The frog is carved Ivory stuck to the lid with Gesso, and the snake is also carved Ivory....  I bought it a couple of years ago at an auction for a song.....  no one seemed interested in it.... I could not figure out why not...  it is a very very very cool little item..... I think it is an old Tobacco jar......  

The fact that you like it is simply a testament to what we already know to be your exceptional taste!!!   :thup:  :hiclp:
