Suzy all lovely pieces - gorgeous colours.
Roy, they look fab against the dark wood.  I'm not a huge fan of pressed glass, but I have a few clear pieces given me by my aunt and I use them at Christmas - somehow they just hit the right note, I can't imagine serving cranberry sauce in anything other than a frilly clear pressed glass bowl  :)

Hey Suzi!! I am so glad you decided to say 'hello' again! What a greeting! They are all beautiful quality pieces....treasure!!

Roy they are lovely too..and my favourite trifle bowl is clear pressed glass....it was given by my Mother in Law, and I think of her every time I use it......nothing else is good enough!!

Have we reached the 'million' mark yet??  Is anybody counting!!??

 :hi:  Hi Suzy, good to see some of your stuff....simply wonderful, you have a real 'designers eye' - that lamp shade magically pulls that display together brilliantly.  And Roy, it's great to know you use some of your wonderful pieces.  I like to use my glass where possible, but I think I'd be terrified to use either of your beautiful 'big' bits.

This thread has been a real eye opener...  thank you everyone  :kissy: cheers steph.

Thanks for all the comments - taking the pics did push me into dusting, desperately needed LOL

I've even managed to clear a small bit of space in which to squeeze a new lovely or two, just in time for the National.

Suzy those are wonderful pieces - I would be very happy to have any of them in my collection.  I like the irridescent swirls particularly.

Absolutely great presentation.

Hi all,

Loving this thread, I have been collecting glass for a number of years but my main collection is Whitefriar's but over the last year or two have been collecting Mdina and Isle of Wight. I have attached a picture of one corner of my Mdina collection, these are mainly fish/axe head vase's (my favourite) and some later IOW perfume bottles. I have another room with sculptures and early IOW. I also collect Exbor fish and animals. It's starting to become an obsession.

Will try and post some more pictures later.

Oh........ growl!
You have a Crizzle Stone, and I don't know if it's one that has already been counted or not!
Whatever, it must be around 30 odd, by now.

Nice amethyst textured rectangular bottle. Scarce beastie - it is an unusual shape to find - even more so in amethyst!

There are getting just too many Mdina collectors now - it's all competition for the good stuff - go away, all of you, it's MINE! :tsk:
Cheers, Sue (M)
