Thank you Anne for putting this into the right thread.

Thank you all for your comments.

Paulbowen – I don’t know what to say except thank you for sharing your feelings about my taste in art...lol.
If you would like to know more about the artist his name is Tony Sherman.
And yes you are correct there are some Dugan pieces in the collection and one Swedish piece.

oops. beg pardon Keith  - and I guess qualification for 'Flair' is the swirl of bubbles - however, a very nice piece whatever it is, and that blue is almost cobalt.    Please remember me in your will ;D         See you have a pair of Czech. 'Candle Wax vases designed by Frantisek Peceny  -  I didn't know you collected Czech.

Nice collection kk, obviously you do very well from the 'oppie' shops  -  is that a cut glass water jug on the lower shelf?      Having worked the charity shops in the U.K. for a number of years  -  I am convinced that the amount of quality finds here is most definitely now 'down' on what it was a year or so back, and when they find a good piece the price does escalate, and it's now almost as cheap to rummage around in bottom end antiques shops.

The attached is not part of a themed collection, but just something I found at the beginning of this week (at the back of a dusty antiques shop) to show that you can still find good pieces at prices to suit.......the four cost me Sterling £40 (I managed to get the guy down a bit, Emmi ;)).   Fortunately, I recognized them instantly, and they do all have the Sowerby 'peacocks head' - and for their age are in almost perfect condition and produce a nice green glow.      They are Sowerby Queen's Ivory Ware.

Paul I like those!  they are very appealing shapes and I like the glass -  especially like the pinched one on the left.

thanks m...........I'd not seen this Queen's Ivory before  -  but it's very 'more ish' so to speak, and the impressions are really sharp.    These pieces are all shown in Raymond Slack's book on pressed glass  -  the open dishes are described as Oriental, and the three cornered fruit bowl has dophins supporting the corners.

Paul,
I think you are correct. I have seen some items sit for months and months at charity shops here as they are above market value.  I wish some sensible employee would drop the price so the item sells so the charity gets real benefit from the item.
Here's my latest treasure from a bottom end antique shop and it was about the same cost as my morning cake and coffee!


In a whimsical way I'm referring to it as Iris, as the platter reminds my of an eye!
Cheers
Meegs

What a delightful find Meegs.  :thup:   I am indeed  :mrgreen: with envy.

Some nice bits in there Kitty-Kat you have been looking hard.  Welcome to yet another Aussie - keep showing finds won't you.  The one thing for sure is that the taste of people (for glass - just so you don't think I am a cannibal) is amazingly eclectic.
