So here comes the Kosta Boda themed display.

Aaaaaah, how nice to see a Kosta Boda display like that. When I first started collecting, I was drooling over newly available Kosta Boda pieces (especially the Göran Wharff ones were gorgeous) at my local art glass shop. But the prices were so not my budget, that I gave up after getting one little Anna Ehrer Atoll candle holder.

Thanks for sharing it, Ross!

The amber scmetterling is making me envious and provoked a rampant desire to collect another example (or more) of this fabulous vase.
I think I'll go amber next time I change glass around...

I like the yellow/uranium sort of triple ogee vase/bowl on Leni's window sill  -  might it be Webb Leni?? :)      I managed to get another display cabinet into the house recently -don't know how - and had a hectic time moving furniture around in 'my room' to accommodate the piece.   Have loaded it with British pieces  -  then there's the triple doored cabinet, now in such a mess (with glass sitting inside glass) that I call it eclectic.      Then the last pic. shows two pieces from  Mr. Baxter, no doubt collecting a lot of d.....
And I still have one more small cabinet to fill, but despite sleepless nights I really don't know where to put it  -  My OH says you can have too much of a good thing, and it should go out into the shed...............  :o

Oooh!  You have some lovely glass there, Paul!  :hiclp:  And I do understand the "Where to put another cabinet?" problem only too well!  ::)  ;D 

Yes, my bowl is Webb 'Sunshine Amber' - discussed in this thread http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,37484.0.html  :D 

I only quite recently started putting glass inside other glass, so I guess I've still got a way to go yet, although my OH has long given up on the "You can have too much of a good thing" line   :24:  :pb:

Wow - kept the best for last !  I particularly like the two vases in the back row either side of that very interesting dish.  Who are they by, Leni.

The "vase" on the right of Leni's unusual picture piece is not a vase Paul, - it's a "Spectrum" sculpture by Nikki Williams - Kinkiglass. I suspect the piece on the left is our Adam Aaronson.
I want to know what the picture piece is, Leni, and why I've not seen it before! :-*

The horsey vase is I believe, Malcolm Sutcliffe, and the blue plate is by Allister Malcolm.
(how'm I doing Leni?)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.
