There used to be a huge collection in the Hancock Museum, Newcastle upon Tyne, don't know if they are still there as I haven't visited for years.The largest I think is The Ware collection in Harvard 4,000 items!!
I love them! so stunning in detail.

And the amazing museum of natural history in Dublin. Not sure if they are on display, last time I visited the museum it was being renovated.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

You did indeed give me the book of the plates of the glass flowers in the Ware collection. I grabbed hold of it as soon as I read this thread!
It's the copy once owned by Helen Munroe-Turner, with her name and 1946 written inside.
No sea anenomes or octopussies. Just flowers and bees, flies, moths and butterflies.
Cheers, Sue (M)
