Thanks David. ZBS is a good line of enquiry. Looking through your collection, fantastic - where do you store or display it all. I have some 300 pieces and have had to put most into storage, my website shows pieces I have and have had but sold.

Adam,

Thanks for the kind comments on my collection. I started about five years ago and slowly changed what I buy. Now, it's almost exclusively Skrdlovice. Display is a problem, as my wife doesn't like clutter(and neither does the better half of me) .  On the main floor, I have to be tasteful with only a few well-chosen pieces. Most of my glass is upstairs, a main display case that holds a good few, and then five smaller cases. Then there's my room. I've put about 60 feet of shelves  on the wall so I'm surrounded by glass. A very reassuring room for me.

I've had to put some glass in the basement, mainly in bookshelves, but some in boxes. My intention was to rotate, but once a piece is demoted to the basement, it tends to stay there.

Don't you find it hard to part with some pieces? You've sold some nice stuff.

David

I don't sell anymore, but that may change in the future. I used to sell to fund my main collections which were varied. Mostly I bought to sell so didn't miss the pieces too much, these days I buy what I like. I am starting to build a collection of Skrdlovice, Mstisov, Chbriska, Harrachov, and other Czech makers as well as retro ceramics, Riihimaen and German glass of the 60s.

I just posted what I think might be a Skrdlovice piece http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,48689.0.html I know it's off topic but as an experienced collector, what do you think.

As for these paperweights - I have also seen in clear glass, that's three colour ways I know of, the neodymium is very nice and also has the sticker. I have had it for nearly ten years and hope one day to get a positive attribution.

Thanks for your post.

Adam
