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
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 Â£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.
