The white vase with colour blobs on the extreme right of 011.jpg might be a Stuart Strathearn Impressions vase.  Can you post it individually so we can see better detail.

Sure :) Only info I ever had on it was... its really, really old end of day glass. Bought from a lady at a car swap meet and it was practically forced on me! I didn't actually like it for a long time. I bought it over 10 years ago? For about $7 from memory.
And now after giving it a dust and a clean, I noticed that it may have had gold gilding around the edge..either that or inground dirt LOL

(added note... On the Kralik.com website it looks very similar to the Kralik Harlequin Opalescent on the Kralik Visual Decor Index A thru M )

I spy a few Whitefriars swans there, Selina   :clap:   I have ... ahem ... a 'small' collection, too  :-[  (Still looking for a black one, if you ever see one  :thup: ) 

Here's a few of my swans  ;D

That is a very nice vase indeed.  I can easily imagine it is Kralik.  It is most definitely NOT Stuart Strathearn,

Presumably Leni the vases are of Leda  :24: :24: :24:.

Intriguing, no one seems to have created a black swan - as we get here in Australia.  They would make a stunning piece of work with the bright red beak and the white feathers nearer the tail.

You are right about black swans Ross, they are beautiful.  Haven't seen many in real life, but was 'blown away' when I did recently.
Think I will put in a favourite search for one, or even a pair.....race you all to find one!!
