It's all your fault!

These are probably Chinese but I couldn't leave them behind just in case. What does anyone think please?

I seem to have developed this addiction to glass since I've been coming here. For today's retail therapy we did a flea market, a jumble sale and a charity shop, followed by chips in the car for lunch - the OH really knows how to show a girl a good time - he even went and bought plastic cutlery for me from the £1-type shop because the chippy didn't have any!

Anyway, I came home with two paperweights, some bits of dressing table set that I know will recycle on ebay, two vintage Pyrex baby bottles, a vintage lemonade concentrate bottle, an LSA International geode style ashtray (cos it had a label), a Becker-Design warmer like Anne's and that was just the glass!! And I didn't buy the tall slim blue jug with the ground out pontil mark because I dithered and some chap walked off with it.

Can somebody move me to the paperweight board please - had a blonde moment!

Yes, I reckon the weights are Chinese.  

The interesting thing is how different the flowers are.  They look similar, but clearly totally different crimps have been used to make them.  

The lampwork bees and butterflies are fairly standard, but IMO not bad attempts, and certainly equal to some early examples by lampworkers now quite well-know, or even famous  :wink:
