Glass / Corroso glass?
« Last post by kwqd on Today at 04:24:45 AM »
I've had this snail for 10-15 years and couldn't identify a maker or country of origin, but finally found a very similar snail with a Murano label on it. Another member suggested it might be corroso glass but we both lack the knowledge to judge if it is or isn't. Can someone who has that knowledge give an opinion on what it is? Bob the Snail is 6" L x 3.5" H x 2" W with no signature or other marks, no mold lines and fairly heavy for its size.

Glass Paperweights / Please help ID purported St. Louis bouquet
« Last post by UnaMacchia on Today at 01:51:39 AM »
Just today I purchased this paperweight in an auction on eBay. It was listed as 19th-century St. Louis (although the seller hedged and warned to "use your own knowledge...."). I bid on it assuming that it was an imitation or counterfeit, but still felt like I got a good deal on it for what (I assume) it is. I'm hoping that someone will be able to give me some sort of idea of exactly what I've purchased. Appreciate any insights you may have.

Glass Animals & Figurines / Flamework Glass Animals and Figurines
« Last post by Mini Squirrel on Yesterday at 11:33:49 PM »
I am looking for other collectors of lampwork glass and figurines in the USA and Canada. I would like to find people that I can be in contact with either in person or over the phone to discuss glass animals and figurines. Ideally, I would love to find some people in the Los Angeles area to share my collection and interests. I have a collection of over 4,000 displayed glass figurines and probably over a thousand extras from auctions I've purchased on eBay etc. My home is like a mini museum with 21 display cases with 194 shelves approximately 26 inches wide and 7 inches deep.  If anyone is traveling through the Los Angeles area and is interested in seeing my collection please contact me. My email address is letmaxinehelp@roadrunner.com.
I look forward to hearing from you either here on the glass board or directly.
Thank you
Maxine

British & Irish Glass / Royal Brierley vase
« Last post by Anne on Yesterday at 11:13:51 PM »
No idea what colour they called this but it's very jolly and will fit well on my orange and yellow glass shelf! Stands 6" high, vertical optical ribs inside, acid stamped Royal Brierley on the base, silver and blue Royal Brierley oval label on the shoulder.
