We mix in the glass and barware with china, etc.  We also have lit up pedestals (see corner) that really show the glass off well!

I don't know the pattern on the casserole dish, but if that is Corning heat resistant glass, you should have it in the kitchen and be using it. You don't need to worry about spoiling it - it doesn't spoil, it cleans up perfectly every time. It's better than Pyrex and Pyrasil. It's amazing and practical stuff. I love it.

Thanks for showing us your collections - amazing! ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Just wanted to share.

This is the Special cabinet where the favourites from the collection end up.

Mostly signed studio pieces :)

My Komaromy cabinet now has proper lighting in it,  so I thought it was time to share with you all.
There are one or who non-Komaromy pieces in there that I couldn't resist adding as I thought they sat well with the collection.
I can do close-ups of some if anyone would like.

Fabulous collection there Rosie.  I remember when you didn't have any of them... I wonder how many are left out in the wild for you to find?! :D

I'm also treating this as a Hello! I'm New post...because well, I'm new ;D

Wish I had known about this site 5 years ago!  Ah well...

So I'm super, super picky. I am not trying to collect ALL vintage Culver Barware, or ALL vintage Japanese trays and other dishware, or ALL Laural Birch mugs. Instead, I buy items that I really love and would actually use (sparingly, of course!). I got into Culver glass accidentally, while researching vintage 60's bar carts. Still don't have one, I got distracted  ::)

I just moved and am still acquiring furniture and such, but here's what I have unpacked so far...Still looking for a vintage bar cart, btw.

Meanwhile, I do have the pictured vintage caddy, which holds 1 glass of of some sets I own. While there is a lot of Culver barware in that caddy, there is also a Libby collection called "Patrician", and what I THINK is a Dorathy Thorpe highball set (no markings), as well as a couple of just cool, unmarked one-offs. Also seen are some unmarked 70's bowls with a white and gold pattern (great for ice cream), and a couple of Laural Birch mugs (not exactly vintage, but getting harder and harder to find now. NIB go for $30+ on ebay). The tray and matching mugs are vintage Otagiri "Blue Iris".

The small round tray holds glasses I use ALL the time. The small Libby "Patrician" glasses are great for juice. I'm looking for more cordial glasses like the one seen here. That shape is uber hard to find. ARG! Vintage sets of similar go for $200+ online, and I paid $2 for the cordial glass in the photo, at a thrift shop last year. I saw a set of 6 glass Baccarat set of similar shape and size going for $2,500 last week, online. Yeesh!

Finally, because this is my favorite set and fit's in with my Coastal (but not kitchy) theme, my Culver Malibu set all together, missing 1 glass. Boo Hiss.

I have some other stuff, but it's mostly one-off vintage barware from the 60's. I'm currently in the market for some Culver glass trays,  and other small Culver glass sets under $100. I used to collect Antique Art Deco glasses, but after many accidents (and higher prices as time went on), I decided on a different collection idea that would not break the bank...at least not initially.

Thank you, Anne!

Culver is an American company, and for all parts and purposes, not around anymore. (Ok, they are sorta, but the contemporary glasses are way different, dunno who they are trying to fool).

In any case, I did actually find the ONE Culver thread on here, and I posted a "reference" reply yesterday. I gotta say that in person, the glasses I have are AMAZING. My crappy photo's do not do them justice at all.
