OMG!! Tony, what a collection!   :rah: Thank you for sharing.  It makes those of us who have every surface in the house covered in glass feel relatively normal.....BUT......a lot of us have glass in the loo.....how about you?  You have showed us a lot of rooms, but not the loo.  ( I think in USA you call it the bathroom!!?? :usd:)

Do you do all the d**ting yourself?? *

* The 'D' word is forbidden on this message board!! :ac1:

Well of course I have glass in the loo but not a lot so it did not make the post.
I also collect porcelain, china, pottery, vintage art etc...so a lot of glass did not
make the post due to it's location. But glass is my passion, glad you enjoyed the
pics. I'll try to get more close-ups of particular pieces for many did not come out
as-well-as I would have liked them to be seen. :)
I am not sure I Know what the "D" word is. Oh wait a minute now I know...the answer
is of course, it gives me a chance to admire my things in all their glory. :thud:
Funny you should ask, it is the 1st thing that comes out of anybodies mouth that
comes to visit. ::)

Yes I have several Peking vases which one day I hope to post separately for a little more info on them.
Most of them do not even show up in the pics. As for the cloisonne there are many more but that is not for this site. ;)

Well Tony, I like the euphemism of 'admiring' your glass....I think we will have to adopt that word in place of the 'D' word!!  You are welcome to 'admire' my glass any time......cloth in hand.  You are right though, it does give you a chance to admire your glass, and boy,  yours is very admirable.
This thread originated with a posting by Astrid: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,39041.0.html

It got so long with many many members showing their collections, usually as a 'Theme', that it was divided in to three parts, and is still being added to.
In-between 'admiring' your collection, you might enjoy starting at the beginning and going through the different themes.  Astrid displays some wonderful themes on her windowsill, which she changes regularly.........which reminds me, Astrid,  are you doing another one soon?  Please. :)

Need some *fall* colors display -- with Red, Golds, Browns, etc.   

Leaves are falling here.  Anyone doing a Glass Fall display at there home?  Or have a Glass Horn of Plenty to include in the fall theme?   Robert Held little glass leaves would make a Nice Fall theme, and color, IMHO.

Me Too!! 
I daresay you know a lot more about glass than you modestly admit to and will be able to help others identify their glass as well.
Happy days. :sun:
