That's what I am trying to navigate through - the hype Vs reality(?). As a newbie, one has to figure out what others are seeing.
My funds are very limited. I am also limited by size & weight of objects - I can't have anything I can't look after. Having already spent A$100 on orange vases that are cheap enough to use, I want to spend the next $100 in a more focused way. I don't want lots of one thing, which means I am not really a collector.
For example, I like the Chance handkerchief vases, but the prices here are OTT - and as soon as I saw the ruby cut glass one in pictures of an exhibition (Cambridge?), buying just for fun lost its attraction. That's the one I want. (But don't expect to actually get it!) Second would be the transparent ones.
The champagne taste I had as a girl hasn't dissipated with age. (Sigh)
