Hello,
I am a newby here, wondering about several pieces of what to me is extraordary pieces of
glassware and thought an expert here at the Glass Message Board may be able to help me please.

The first item of curiosity is a beautiful hand painted glass vase given to me as a Christmas gift 20 years ago by a very very famous international pop star and his then wife.  I remember the packing slip used for insurance purposes (which I accidently saw) described it as Austrian art glass vase .. I have never seen anything like it. It was purchased at an antique shop in Queen St, Wollahra in Sydney?


the second items are a matched pair of briliant cut glass decanters, with slice cut pattern and spire stoppers...I think they may be from Pittsburgh and they appear very old .. in quite good condition. & PRISTINE

Thank you for such a quick response .. the message actually skipped away before I could finish it - appreciate the tip re photos and will attempt that later today.  The pop star was Elton John.
Cheers
Diana
