Great pics - they are iconic designs aren't they?  Absolute classics that go with anything, look fantastic and were 'new' developments in their time.
I love the 'common' yellow best but they are all great.

Great designs and I really find the square ones particularly attractive: very much a modernist style.

Personally, I like them in any colour  ;D

One other point regarding value of these, which I have just mentioned in the Walu thread, is that the undertrays are particularly hard to find and sometimes fetch a premium on their own. I think all the ones for Graniver are in black, so even that facsimile I bought was expensive.

And there are some extra special rarities. e.g. rare as hen's teeth is the white version...the two I've seen both had tiny flecks of other colours (like Tutti Frutti ice cream). There is certainly black graniver, as well as versions of the same designs made with black glass and black frosted (satine) glass.

I've not forgotten the yellow I saw in the Rijks museum - I think it must have been this:
http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/199210

Went a few weeks ago but did the Banksy and Warhol exhibution at Moco and then went to De Looier instead (only had very limited hours to spend).
Small punt for Moco and Banksy cos it was great :0 https://www.mocomuseum.com/
I think the Warhol's finished but they are showing Dali - and I saw a great Dali exhibition in Barcelona, so very worth it.

Saw some glass I'd never seen in real life before and it is always such an eye-opener to actually see the pieces.
No purchases - all way out of my pocket.

The Light Festival was wonderful - I love Amsterdam :)

De Looier does need quite a bit of time to look around. Lots of very interesting glass, but at a price, of course.

at a price I can't afford lol - nothing was affordable and normally I do try to bring something home.

But it was fab to see loads of stuff I've never seen before outside of photos :)

Its primarily set up to catch the rich tourist, I reckon. Rules us out then! ;)
