You should see Patricia's downstairs loo, almost no glass but it is a loo accessory museum!

A loo accessory museum?  :o
I do wish my curiosity could be satisfied with a photo... it sounds either fascinating or slightly disturbing. Perhaps both.

expensive taste
Yes that has been a problem... Not so bad these days, as the collection grows there are fewer items that I want to add to it but they can be the pricier examples.

Most of my displays are mixed colour, not tried all one decor before but saying that there is plenty of variation within Isle of Wight's Aurene.

Sick of looking at a half completed display - time is of the essence at the moment.  This is just a selection of purchases from this year.

Top Shelf:-  Mainly Australian but the left hand irridescent vase is an Abelman Spiderweb

Middle Shelf:-  My aviary seems to be increasing - 2 Marcolin, a Holmegaard, 3 Finnish, & 2 from UK. My otter is hiding and the polar bear has an unusual base mark - a Diamond with an A inside, all created as a series of small raised dots.  4 Riihimaki vases, a Bertil Vallien Vase & Three Holmegaard bits.  Finally a Whitefriars suncatcher(bought here in Australia)

Bottom Shelf:-  Two "Pickle" jars & small Webb decanter. Vases from Finland(2), Caithness(2), Skridlovice(2?) and IOW.  Holmegaard Plimsoll decanter.  Canadian Carved Siku glass.  Okra perfume, TVG pwt, Squash pwt, and a small plate(? Monart).

A number of these will be posted for asssistance in attribution when I get the chance.

Hi Ross,  a little info that you might already know...the 2 birds on the RHS are Haparanda Glasbruk (as far as I know)....I have some of these with labels. The otter is Langham Glass House (but you might already know that,does it have an etched mark on the base, or even a Paul Miller signature?) and the owl on the left at the back is probably FM Konstglas if it isn't already marked.
What a lovely collection....I wondered if the green bird at the back left is another Finnish Glasbruk  piece from the Art Glass Team, does it have a label?
The white and green duck at the fromt looks remarkably like a Selkirk Scotland piece,  but I would need to see a better view to be certain....it should be labelled or engraved if it is.

Spot on with just about everything Rosie.  The bird at the extreme left is a Marcolin duck and the smaller green bird at the back near the Ronneby owl is a Napapiirin Lasi from Finland.  The small clear one is a Michael Bang from Holmegaard and the Black puffin a Hadeland.

I'd love to see some of them separately when you have time Ross, especially the Hadeland Puffin and the other Finnish Napapiirin one.  I have several of these hollow Finnish birds, all made the same way with a separate gather of glass to form the head and neck.....in fact I have 2 listed for sale at the moment because I am just about out of room for any more in the collection.  Trouble is,  I don't mind if they don't sell!! 2.30am....best get some kip...methinks!!

I think your "Monart" plate might just be a very scarce, very early, bit of Mdina....
More piccies, pretty please?  :)

I have been busty taking photos as I have bought quite a lot lately.  This i9s the second half of my current purchases.

Top Shelf:-  The centre rear Strombergshyttan and the extreme left rear Orrefors have a blue sheet behind them so the engraving shows better.  There are 12  makers represented.

Middle shelf:-  Rear left corner is Slajaglas - an unusual Swedish company.

Bottom Shelf:-  LH side is an Australian Slumped glass bowl.
