My small and varied collection... If I like it, and I can afford it - I buy it!! I don't profess to know much about glass, but I know what I like..... which I think is important. :)
Thanks for looking. ;D

Gary - you are just plain weird. ;)

It is all properly organised, colour co-ordinated, beautifully balanced and beautifully lit.
 There is not one speck of dust in sight.
You have spaces between the pieces you are displaying.
The architecture of your house, the furniture, the accessories, are all period matched...

are you in league with old nick that you have succeeded in achieving all that?  8) 8) 8)

Simba - delighted to see your bathroom is not devoid of glass - so many folk forget that is a room which has space for glass - your display is very apt - lovely cool watery colours, and elegant shapes. just the right sort of atmosphere.

Liking it is the best and only way to go! What is that great big lollipop at the top?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks Sue
I sold my soul to the devil for a dust free house  ;D ;D.
These photos were taken after the weekly dusting.

I normally put my glass together by era, but I find that quite limiting.  So I've tried to just use colour and shape  as the deciding factor here.
The age range is about 125 years from earliest (Molineaux Webb pike 1885) to most recent (blue bowl 2011)  and covers Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, 60s/70s and early ish and more recent Studio glass. 

I've been playing around with the camera settings to try and get some good pics.
This glass is in a room used in the evening rather than daytime - the last pic is what it looks like during the day.
