Nic they look fantastic - serene, very classy.

This is ours for Christmas - when it comes to this time of year, in my head everything is candlelight and traditional, real garlands and the smell of fir trees (which is where I come unstuck wanting to live in a modern all white house with no clutter  ;D)  All the glass in the sitting room will be white, green and amber so it doesn't clash with the multicoloured Christmas tree decs  ;)

In my dreams Keith  ;D  no, they are enamelled.  I love them nonetheless, but cameo? no unfortunately not.  I have three pieces but none of which are worth much although I happen to think all are beautiful.  Two damaged ( one Tip Galle but an unusual shape and I think it is gorgeous cameo, the other the little new snuff bottle).  The third is a fish paperweight (Okra) that I was told wasn't real cameo in the true sense of the word.  So you and me both then  ;D although I think you are doing better than me with the Galle piece.

The gold stuff is most likely Czech and probably Borske Sklo

very attractive Helga :).........might we describe you small collection as 'retro'  i.e.  a post 1945 style, now outdated, but becoming fashionable again, possibly because of attractiveness and appeal. :)

Nooo... 'retro', a contraction of 'retrospective', means 'new, but in an older style'.

I cringe at fairs and markets when dealers ask me if I'm "into that there vintage retro stuff".  :-X

ohhh hahah I afraid I use "vintage" and "retro" a lot, but thats because thats what peple understand.
 
I have never really thought about the exact meaning, is there no good word that describes things that are not  yet antique but still a bit old..that is 40+ years old?

And yes these are very attractive and festive even!

many thanks

Helga
