:D :D :D

I think you're right, Leni, it does have a leaf, and on closer inspection, I think it used to have two. (I've just found more damage that was hiding).I also think it used to have 3 leafy feet, but it only has 2 now. It has been a bit polished, and there's a big crack in the base. It still displays very well. I'd agree with you that on these, a bit of damage is not really a problem.

 :lol: :oops: :lol: Hoist a little by your own petard, Leni - you should have said an acorn DID count. However, I'm not after your paperweights! (unless they're those jellyfish ones) :twisted:

Great "triffids" Pat!
The multi-branch pieces are stunning.
I love this kind of glass, in any colour.
There's definitely a market for this glass, & it rocks my world far more than any modern stuff.
Paul, your vase is really beautiful.
I must warn you that one day you'll realise your house is full of this glass!
It's addictive-either that or it breeds! :D

Very occasionally, I admit  :oops:  I dust - with the vaccum cleaner dusting brush!  :wink:  :lol:

Dusting is something I don't have to do too often as most of my glass is in cabinets.
But when I do have to dust I use artist's brushes. Soft hair ones like watercolour brushes.
Excellent & also gentle on delicate Victorian confections of thorns & flowers!
Leni,
A cabinet will be a good investment for your beautiful green glass collection- no more dusting, safety from damage,etc.
