Michael, flowers in a glass vase AND water?  :thud:

Very decadent, indeed.


P.S.  Thank you for making me laugh at my own ridiculousness...  I got a lovely little bunch of flowers from my Dad and decided to display them in a Krosno drinking glass only because I had 'no other vase'.  In fact, I've got well over 60 vases in my home.   ::)

A picture of my now-wilting flowers in a glass:

Anik, wouldn't those have fit quite nicely in your Ząbkowice midget vase? :)

I like to use my vases (and ashtrays :sm:) for their intended purpose; but I have to admit that some vases just wouldn't look good with flowers in them...

Michael, I honestly did try putting my flowers into the little Drost vase, but the bunch was too big.  That's why I settled for a Krosno glass.  I think I'd have a very hard time using any of my Czech vases for their intended purpose though... (http://www.sympato.ch/smileys/Glups.gif)

It's wonderful that you use your pieces.  I really am in awe, but the thought of you using your ashtrays makes me shiver -- I know what my Luminarc ashtray looks like after butting-out in it for some time.  It certainly ain't pretty.

Looking at a very recent uranium glass post, it struck me how varied the daylight colours can be.........so here are some colour variations, and you will have to take my word for it that they do all glow.    Won't itemize them all, but just to say they include Bagley, Webbs, R/Brierley (possibly), J. Derbyshire (the tall goblet in pic. two), Davidson, Richardson, Baccarat, Jobling (jade), S. Reich, Percival Vickers (possibly) and Stevens & Williams (possibly), and of course there are some I will never know.   The two squat yellowish necked vases are possibly unused cameo blanks, and you can see the goblet in Cyril Manley's book on page 102 (if only it actually was that one ;)).     I have posted the globular crimson streaked bowl before, but it remained uncommented on.    It is very unusual, and had it not been uranium cud possibly have been Scottish Clutha  -  I've seen pieces of dull green in the V. & A. with this almost blood red streaking  -  but I think it might be Continental.    Anyone like to have another stab at it?

Lovely. I think the range of uranium colours and shades of colours is fascinating (but then you probably guessed that) and I could add a few more, though you have some I don't have. Which is the Bagley?
