1. row: Scandinavian Glass,
2. row: Italian glass,
3. row: mix of mostly unidentified spanish, german or italian glass

Great cabinet, a.mar.illo!  I love the drawers...

Now, just to show that I can 'do' some colour, here is part of my Czech pressed glass display... a few weeks ago, my grumpy 'ol husband was a bit less grumpy and built me two display units for my glass, this being one of them.  It's still partially empty.  ;D

 :thup: :thup:  See, he loves you!!

Now nobody put any of those PW in the Window Sill.  I think Rosie *should* also attach that pic here of *what* can happen if a display (in the window) is not rotated, or one is not careful with the powers of Glass + and Sun :sun:   Worthy to mention here too with Photo, IMHO

Nice eclectic collection amarillo.  :thup:   By the way what is that nice mulberry glass vase at the right hand side of the top shelf - can't read the label.

Anik I like your collection also and I am wondering if any of the clear, rippled pieces have a flat base or are they all "dished" in c.1cm?

Hi Ross,

I don't quite know which rippled pieces you're referring to, but of all the clear vases in that particular display unit, all are 'dished' to varying depths with the exception of the tall, slim Pavel Panek vase (third shelf from the top on the right hand side, middle vase).  That one's got a star bottom.

I was specifically referring to the top left shelf and the large vase on the 4th shelf down on the right.

Ahhh, I see... the vases you are referring to were all designed by Frantisek Peceny, and all have got a raised rim surrounding a smooth depression.  :)

Ross, thanks!

Do you mean this one Rose??

The burned marks on the wooden windowsill were caused by the sun's rays being focussed through orb shaped paperweights like this one, so beware!!
