I too love your collection.   :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

My personal favourite is a decanter of which you have many, many beauties.  I particularly like the Tiffany style Gold irridescent one.  I am glad you are able to display so much - wish I had the room.

Out of interest where are you living Thomas.  Most of the pieces in your collection would be unprocurable here in Australia, and postage is poisonous to get larger items here - fortunately I mainly collect small items.

Keith:  The ginbari vases are not marked.  I bought them because the design is a scene.  Usually I see flowers, birds or fish.  I thought the scenery was unusual.  The small vase is marked.  There is a vase like it at the following URL.  It is labeled Meiji Egret Ginbari vase by Tsunekawa Taiichiro 1903.  My vase may be Meiji but it is not by Taiichiro.  The marks are different.  I don't know who made my vase.  The vases look nice in the cabinet but they are not perfect.  There is considerable crazing in the pair and the smaller vase has a little crazing but not as much.  Thank you for your kind remarks.   http://idcloisonne.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/marks/.pond/upginbarivasesignedbird2.jpg.w180h328.jpg

A corrected URL  If this doesn't show the whole page, click on "Japan marks" and scroll down near the bottom of the page.  On the left.  http://idcloisonne.com/id28.html

Ross:  I'm glad you like the Tiffany decanter.  It is marked "L C Tiffany Favrille" on the base.  The wines are marked "LCT".   I live in Eastern USA about 3 hours southwest of Washington, DC.  I have actually had a couple of items shipped to me from Australia so I'm familiar with the postage.  In fact, the postage was more than I paid for the items.  One seller did tell me he could save me postage if I wanted it shipped by land instead of air.  He explained that "by land" meant the package would cross the Pacific on a steamer.  He said it would take about 2 months to receive it.  I passed.  The 2 months was probably assuming the steamer docked on the west coast.  If it went through the Panama Canal and docked on the east coast, I would probably still be waiting for it.
