Yeah, it does look like it now that i've seen pictures...

I guess maybe i hold onto it for historical reasons.

Seems Lithuania might have a more vibrant glass economy that I would expect.  This small bowl is mine found here in Australia.

I think it's a lamp base ( I don't think that at all - auto typing.  I think it's a hookah base as John says) - I also think these might have been made in Hungary maybe.  But those are just thoughts.

Glass / Re: Nazeing tumbler cloudy glass vase or other?
« Last post by essi on Yesterday at 07:52:15 PM »
Charles Hajdamach book 20th century british glass, it says that  in the thirties Nazeing had a small catalogue of seven pages.
 After the second world war art glass production was recorded in a set of working drawings.
Have you seen the black and white photos from the 1930s?
They did have a bubbly range from this time but it notes that the bubbles can be felt on the inside.
Hope this is of some help.

Glass / Aqua Crystal by Galos
« Last post by OCDan on Yesterday at 06:38:41 PM »
Does anyone have any information on this collection and who it's by?  Aqva Cristal by Galos I got it as a gift, it's a wine decanter and two glasses and they look like they are painted somehow.  I found a website that has the same collection listed but I can't find anything that looks like it on there. I've seen a couple things on eBay with the same tag but no luck with any information. I have one picture of it and it's not very good.  The website listed on the tag is gone. I would appreciate it if anybody could give me some help. I'm attaching a link to the website that has the updated collection and a picture.

Thousands of tiny bubbles? That really helps. Not me, I'm afraid, but it will really help somebody who has a better idea and knowledge in whatever area this is from. I would not rule out Murano. (another area I avoid!)
