Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Pamela they are lovely - took me while to figure out what was one the group.  I love the Angel.
Keith you need Pamela's angel now - be great to have 9 of them in a square shape and huge frame to display them on a wall, with some funky lighting behind.

That is an interesting group BusterJ.  I would like a little info about what I am seeing in it.  Also taking from such a low angle means the items behind are masked by those in front.  Maybe a 45degree above shot would have shown all of the items to advantage.

Very nice indeed Roy, I too like using my glass....especally the art deco stuff.....it just looks classier that your ordinary Ikea stuff.

BusterJ,  I have just had a look through your Picasa album....what a beautiful collection you have.
I had a little cry though, because you have a lovely 'blue swirls' Ermano Toso bowl and I had one almost identical, long before I started to have the bug for glass collecting, and it was in the downstairs cloakroom with all the other blue pottery, candles and bric a brac you keep in the loo even the loo & basin were dark blue!
Well it was one of my favourite pieces,  but I dropped it on the floor.....it broke into a million pieces....I was very upset, but I am glad I didn't know what it was, or the value, because I would have been angry as well!!  Lovely to see yours though.....thanks for the viewing. :sun:

That is a sad story Rosie.
That little blue Ermano Toso is one of my favourites. It fits so nicely in the palm of the hand and has a nice weight to it.

Thanks for having a a look at my little collection!

I tend not to display glass in big groups (I generally prefer glass displayed in isolation, or in pairs/trios at a push, plus any shelves usually get overrun by books within minutes of entering the house), but I was just photographing some new glassy acquisitions and thought a group shot of the 1920s-30s soffiato pieces by Cappellin and C.V.M. that I had to hand would look pretty snazzy...
