They are absolutely glorious, Rosie - and groupled together like that -  it's like seeing a moment of a ballet, frozen in time - (well frozen for the photo - I imagine in 3-D reality it's more like the dance is ongoing....)
You need more. You really do. They look so fabulous together.... more is more, Rosie. >:D

    • Astrid's glass collection on Picasa
It looks beautiful. I have not seen this one before, but it resembles the big round i have in one of my pictures. Mine has bubbles in it though.....
I have yet to find some litterature about Strömbergshyttan so I can find out the years and makers of the different pieces I pick up.

Wow Mikael, your collection is stunning, and so well focused too... If you find a good Strombergshyttan source, please share it on the forum, I have recently bought this Strombergshyttan that I absolutely adore (more beautiful than my meagre photographing skills can ever show) and knowing who designed it would be very satisfying...

I need to think up a good theme for my August display to have this particular vase in it.

Have a look at my collection online and see if you can set me straight on my identifications : http://picasaweb.google.nl/102861706167408125672

I'll tell John you said I should have more Sue!!

Those Strombershyttan pieces are so sophisticated Mikael.....if I had a win on the lottery, I would buy lots of it, and your vase is beautiful Astrid, it looks as though there have been explosions in the glass. I want it all!!! :24:
( I have used this pic to depict me lying on my back kicking and screaming like a spoiled brat.....it is not me laughing!!)

Oh Ingela,  they really are very very beautiful.....and I love the way you have grouped them so tastefully....especially the cold winter theme with the tree....I have a clear one like that....it was sold as a ring holder.....when I got it , it had 'the' label.....I just love them....I would like to have a whole forest of them!!  I use mine at Christmas with all the little spun glass and art glass Angels I have.....I think I posted a picture earlier in this thread.

Hasn't this been the most wonderful thread ever on the GMB.....is it the longest with the most pictures??  Have we set a record?

Now I know where all the green glass went to Hannah! 
My glass collecting bug started with green glass....mostly Art Deco....What a lovely collection.
 I love the clocks, very much to my liking.  :sun:

Thanks ...... I love the thrill of finding uranium glass .... Theres a uv light in there and it looks fab at night ..... Most of the pieces come from car boots and charity shops, but I pushed the boat out with the 2 clocks which came from a junk shop for a whopping £5 each  :chky: ....... Glad to have found this site ... its great  :hiclp:
