Oh, great that this is being continued, I saw some awesome collections in the former posts, great stuff!

Here's mine, a 1950s Cabinet:

on top: anything too tall to be inside of the cabinet:)
1. row: Scandinavian Glass,
2. row: Italian glass,
3. row: mix of mostly unidentified spanish, german or italian glass

Great cabinet, a.mar.illo!  I love the drawers...

Now, just to show that I can 'do' some colour, here is part of my Czech pressed glass display... a few weeks ago, my grumpy 'ol husband was a bit less grumpy and built me two display units for my glass, this being one of them.  It's still partially empty.  ;D

 :thup: :thup:  See, he loves you!!

Now nobody put any of those PW in the Window Sill.  I think Rosie *should* also attach that pic here of *what* can happen if a display (in the window) is not rotated, or one is not careful with the powers of Glass + and Sun :sun:   Worthy to mention here too with Photo, IMHO

Nice eclectic collection amarillo.  :thup:   By the way what is that nice mulberry glass vase at the right hand side of the top shelf - can't read the label.

Anik I like your collection also and I am wondering if any of the clear, rippled pieces have a flat base or are they all "dished" in c.1cm?

Hi Ross,

I don't quite know which rippled pieces you're referring to, but of all the clear vases in that particular display unit, all are 'dished' to varying depths with the exception of the tall, slim Pavel Panek vase (third shelf from the top on the right hand side, middle vase).  That one's got a star bottom. 

 :hi:

I was specifically referring to the top left shelf and the large vase on the 4th shelf down on the right.

Ahhh, I see... the vases you are referring to were all designed by Frantisek Peceny, and all have got a raised rim surrounding a smooth depression.  :)

Thanks Anik,

that's a beautiful czech collection!

Ross, thanks!
The one with the tiny label, on the right top shelf (inside) is by Reijmyre, Sweden

Do you mean this one Rose??

The burned marks on the wooden windowsill were caused by the sun's rays being focussed through orb shaped paperweights like this one, so beware!!

Hi Anik :hi:

He is lovely, isn't he.....made by Langham Glass House....quite unusual....I have only ever seen 2 of them.

You made me laugh, because I was going to say 'You will be pleased to know that I have put my beaver on view in a safer place.' But decided not to because I thought it had ambiguous overtones! (& I was worried the Paul & jp would comment!! :o)

If I had such a beautiful beaver, I'd also put it in full view for all to admire.  Gorgeous piece!

It has been a while since I dropped by - I hope everyone had a great summer.

I enjoyed a thread that was here where folks were showing their glass displays. What I saw of it I enjoyed and wanted to share mine but could not find the thread. I have posted pics of my display on my blog - if you wish, take a look: http://bohemianglasscollector.blogspot.com/ (http://bohemianglasscollector.blogspot.com/)

I hope you all find some great pieces this fall!

I am having camera issues at the moment but I have been meaning to post some pictures to this thread from the start so here is my themed Whitefriars FLC gold shelf. Above is generic Whitefriars (apart from the impostor penguin) and below is Czech glass (not that you can really see them!). I will take some proper pictures when my camera is working but thought I would share this phone picture of my favourite shelf in the meantime.

There is probably too much weight for a glass shelf but I like to live dangerously!

Wonderful glass.  Don't like the picture over the mantel at all.  Right hand set of shelves, second shelf up from the bottom, piece on far left of shelf is not Bohemian, it is American, made by Dugan.

Thank you all for your comments.

Paulbowen – I don’t know what to say except thank you for sharing your feelings about my taste in art...lol.
If you would like to know more about the artist his name is Tony Sherman.
And yes you are correct there are some Dugan pieces in the collection and one Swedish piece.

oops. beg pardon Keith  - and I guess qualification for 'Flair' is the swirl of bubbles - however, a very nice piece whatever it is, and that blue is almost cobalt.    Please remember me in your will ;D         See you have a pair of Czech. 'Candle Wax vases designed by Frantisek Peceny  -  I didn't know you collected Czech.

Nice collection kk, obviously you do very well from the 'oppie' shops  -  is that a cut glass water jug on the lower shelf?      Having worked the charity shops in the U.K. for a number of years  -  I am convinced that the amount of quality finds here is most definitely now 'down' on what it was a year or so back, and when they find a good piece the price does escalate, and it's now almost as cheap to rummage around in bottom end antiques shops.

The attached is not part of a themed collection, but just something I found at the beginning of this week (at the back of a dusty antiques shop) to show that you can still find good pieces at prices to suit.......the four cost me Sterling £40 (I managed to get the guy down a bit, Emmi ;)).   Fortunately, I recognized them instantly, and they do all have the Sowerby 'peacocks head' - and for their age are in almost perfect condition and produce a nice green glow.      They are Sowerby Queen's Ivory Ware.

thanks m...........I'd not seen this Queen's Ivory before  -  but it's very 'more ish' so to speak, and the impressions are really sharp.    These pieces are all shown in Raymond Slack's book on pressed glass  -  the open dishes are described as Oriental, and the three cornered fruit bowl has dophins supporting the corners.

Paul,
I think you are correct. I have seen some items sit for months and months at charity shops here as they are above market value.  I wish some sensible employee would drop the price so the item sells so the charity gets real benefit from the item.
Here's my latest treasure from a bottom end antique shop and it was about the same cost as my morning cake and coffee!


In a whimsical way I'm referring to it as Iris, as the platter reminds my of an eye!

Some nice bits in there Kitty-Kat you have been looking hard.  Welcome to yet another Aussie - keep showing finds won't you.  The one thing for sure is that the taste of people (for glass - just so you don't think I am a cannibal) is amazingly eclectic.

Charity shops around here mark the price label with the week it was put out on the shelves. Then two, three or four weeks later (depending on the charity) the price is reduced.

Do you do all the d**ting yourself?? *

Well of course I have glass in the loo but not a lot so it did not make the post.
I also collect porcelain, china, pottery, vintage art etc...so a lot of glass did not
make the post due to it's location. But glass is my passion, glad you enjoyed the
pics. I'll try to get more close-ups of particular pieces for many did not come out
as-well-as I would have liked them to be seen. :)
I am not sure I Know what the "D" word is. Oh wait a minute now I know...the answer
is of course, it gives me a chance to admire my things in all their glory. :thud:
Funny you should ask, it is the 1st thing that comes out of anybodies mouth that
comes to visit. ::)

Well Tony, I like the euphemism of 'admiring' your glass....I think we will have to adopt that word in place of the 'D' word!!  You are welcome to 'admire' my glass any time......cloth in hand.  You are right though, it does give you a chance to admire your glass, and boy,  yours is very admirable.
This thread originated with a posting by Astrid: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,39041.0.html

It got so long with many many members showing their collections, usually as a 'Theme', that it was divided in to three parts, and is still being added to.
In-between 'admiring' your collection, you might enjoy starting at the beginning and going through the different themes.  Astrid displays some wonderful themes on her windowsill, which she changes regularly.........which reminds me, Astrid,  are you doing another one soon?  Please. :)

Need some *fall* colors display -- with Red, Golds, Browns, etc.   

Leaves are falling here.  Anyone doing a Glass Fall display at there home?  Or have a Glass Horn of Plenty to include in the fall theme?   Robert Held little glass leaves would make a Nice Fall theme, and color, IMHO.

how about old brass weights  -  anyone know anything???  - I have one that is marked (stamped) in several places with various Standards/legal marks, I can see.      I picked this up - from a boot sale  -  might be very early C18, but I haven't yet made an effort to id.     Would it be worthwhile/acceptable to put this on the collectables site.??

Many thanks Anne  -  I now have to find the piece, and frankly it's so bothery hot this afternoon that it might take me a while, but I will definitely locate it.    In the meantime, and being in need of adulation and worship  -  I have now finished slaving over a hot mallet and chisel, so from the depths of greenest Surrey (U.K.) I bring you my 'Drinking Glass Cabinet Mk. 1'  -  just forget the glass it's the lovely warm colours of West African Mahogany (I think it's Okoume) that you need to see.       Just in case anyone thinks I bought the wood  -  I did in fact rescue a shed load of the stuff when there was a local shop-front being dismantled and skipped  - so I removed it from the skip.  -  it breaks my heart to see such wonderful material being thrown away.    I have enough to make a dozen of these (if I live that long) ............and the glass isn't bad either :)

Unfortunately, Rosie, I have so many glassy things to do in life, plus the bookbinding, plus the gardening, plus the D.I.Y, plus being Lothario etc. that I would quite literally never get around to fullfiling any orders, and the few pieces I do make are simply gifts within the family.      I have on occasions looked at producing the odd item to sell (blanket box sort of thing) but commercially these items can be bought now so cheaply that no one would ever pay the sort of prices that I would need to charge.     It isn't the cost of the materials that is the issue, generally - I have a reclamation yard locally and can buy old floorboards etc. very cheaply, rather it's the cost of my labour which kills the bottom line.      You must have a local carpenter able to produce something similar, surely.     Don't I seem to remember that some time in the past 12 months you did acquire some new cabinet/s??
This one is in fact too shallow for the Wedgwood goblets (which have to be turned sideways so that I can close the doors :-[), and the Mk. 2 (already part made) will be deeper.

thanks Anik - finally, approval from Krakow  -  I do believe I have arrived ;)

Only kidding Paul....as you know, I have a hubby that can make most things and my daughter's partner is a bespoke cabinet maker, so it was just that it was the highest compliment I could pay you to mention it at all. :thup:
You are right, I have just got 2 new cabinets,  but they are already overfilled.
Your glasses do look stunning in that cabinet though, and I hope you will show us the next one when it is finished.

Paul, that is beautiful and the colour is glorious.  It must also be gratifying to be able to make a bespoke piece that isn't as wide as all shelves seem to be.  I find it irritating trying to find the right shelves and often wish they were less deep.  I'm sure the next set will be perfect for your goblets.

thank m - would agree there are plenty of display cabinets around with much deeper shelves  -  especially in places like the Heart Foundation furniture stores, but seems almost impossible to find pieces with a narrow depth like this one  -  I guess there are not so many people who collect drinking glasses.

Flying free, the bird is a lovely pottery one with the most supercilious down the beak look on its face, possibly by Elizabeth Lissaman but it is signed Grehan on its base. I have another shelf to fill at the top- so many boxes to go through!!!

I have just had the time to put together a new display of bright colours.  Not Christmas themed - Finnish & Whitefriars.

Top of Cabinet = Various Finnish glass - Nuutajarvi Notsjo, Riihimaki, & Iittala  in no particular sequence.
Top Shelf = Riihimaki except for the Kaj Franck (Nuutajarvi Notsjo) vase centre front.
Middle Shelf = Riihimaki the 6 items to the left, Whitefriars the rest
Bottom Shelf = Whitefriars

Enjoy, Ross

Flying Free there is a small vase on the left hand side just in front of the decanter.  It is pink & blue and sort of "Turkish" in decoration.  Do you have an attribution for it?  It seems very similar to a vase I have.  I have seena small ball vase - similar to yours attributed as follows "The Moroccan Tapestry Pattern appears in the 2000 price guide of Antique Trader "American and European Decorative and Art Glass," on page 188, where it is attributed to Thomas Webb. ".  I wondered if you had a better attribution.

Hi Ross

No I don't at the moment.  The Great Glass site had a note on there (if I recall correctly) that they had been thought to be Bohemian in origin, but current thoughts are that they may have been produced in the UK and decorated by French enamellers who had immigrated into the UK during the mid? 1800's and settled in the West Midlands (or something similar to that). They comment that Cyril Manley had thought these were British.  I have seen these attributed to Thomas Webb  via the same attribution source you quote, but so far everything I've seen on them has been attribution rather than a definitive id.  Mine is signed and numbered on the base.  
They are exquisitely enamelled, very pretty pieces, but I'm no further ahead and I've searched extensively on that one.  I'll go see if I can find the Great Glass piece they wrote to quote here for future ref (edited - I've modified my reply above now).

Thanks "m" I have only relatively recently started collecting Finnish glass and I reckon the coloured stuff is fabulous - as you say it display's so well.  I have not got into SKLO because yopu see so little on our Ebay so I suspect there is not a lot out here - but of course I may be very wrong. 

My favourite glass style is basically iridescent - obviously started by buying Colin Heaney in the early days and graduating to Orient & Flume (wish I could afford much more) and Isle of Wight, Okra, etc., etc.  I do like "Latticino" my first piece ever was a lovely vine leaf shape.  Finally I love good crystal and Kosta Boda Glass.

WOW thank you Pamela!

I had not really checked the set yet, it was owned by my late father in law whom I never met.

I guess I should have said something about the vases and bottles on the first picture,, the emerald bottles I know nothing about, the colorour is really dark emerald, then there is a Ingrid glass ( I gather from a post a saw somewhere on this board), the 2 aquamarine vases look like brothers but I suspect they are not vintage at all, but I love this color on glass.
The amber vase is czech, the purple one I am looking for an ID and then there is the Walther glass vase.

And yes..this it TOO much fun

http://3kids.blogspot.com/2011/11/gler-glas-glass-ufff.html

the clear ones..the larger one is Walther Germany, the other one is Ingrid glass i gather, although its harder to confirm it seems.

I am looking for a ID for the purple vase.

Pamela they are lovely - took me while to figure out what was one the group.  I love the Angel.
Keith you need Pamela's angel now - be great to have 9 of them in a square shape and huge frame to display them on a wall, with some funky lighting behind.

That is an interesting group BusterJ.  I would like a little info about what I am seeing in it.  Also taking from such a low angle means the items behind are masked by those in front.  Maybe a 45degree above shot would have shown all of the items to advantage.

Very nice indeed Roy, I too like using my glass....especally the art deco stuff.....it just looks classier that your ordinary Ikea stuff.

BusterJ,  I have just had a look through your Picasa album....what a beautiful collection you have.
I had a little cry though, because you have a lovely 'blue swirls' Ermano Toso bowl and I had one almost identical, long before I started to have the bug for glass collecting, and it was in the downstairs cloakroom with all the other blue pottery, candles and bric a brac you keep in the loo even the loo & basin were dark blue!
Well it was one of my favourite pieces,  but I dropped it on the floor.....it broke into a million pieces....I was very upset, but I am glad I didn't know what it was, or the value, because I would have been angry as well!!  Lovely to see yours though.....thanks for the viewing. :sun:

I tend not to display glass in big groups (I generally prefer glass displayed in isolation, or in pairs/trios at a push, plus any shelves usually get overrun by books within minutes of entering the house), but I was just photographing some new glassy acquisitions and thought a group shot of the 1920s-30s soffiato pieces by Cappellin and C.V.M. that I had to hand would look pretty snazzy...

Nic they look fantastic - serene, very classy.

This is ours for Christmas - when it comes to this time of year, in my head everything is candlelight and traditional, real garlands and the smell of fir trees (which is where I come unstuck wanting to live in a modern all white house with no clutter  ;D)  All the glass in the sitting room will be white, green and amber so it doesn't clash with the multicoloured Christmas tree decs  ;)

In my dreams Keith  ;D  no, they are enamelled.  I love them nonetheless, but cameo? no unfortunately not.  I have three pieces but none of which are worth much although I happen to think all are beautiful.  Two damaged ( one Tip Galle but an unusual shape and I think it is gorgeous cameo, the other the little new snuff bottle).  The third is a fish paperweight (Okra) that I was told wasn't real cameo in the true sense of the word.  So you and me both then  ;D although I think you are doing better than me with the Galle piece.

I have never really thought about the exact meaning, is there no good word that describes things that are not  yet antique but still a bit old..that is 40+ years old?

And yes these are very attractive and festive even!

In that case I think perhaps there might be a little personal interpretation with this word retro :)..........aren't I aware of seeing some of the Bargain Hunt type programmes using this word to describe pieces from the 50's and 60's  -  but whatever.          I seem to recall that back in the good old days, vintage was used to describe something that was c. 50 years old, and antique implied 100 years or more  -  but I suppose like retro its all changed.          Anything more than 10 years old is now probably considered an antique ;D

I'm with Nic. If it's new pretending to be old, it's retro; if it's old, it's old! People don't think about what they say and what it really means! These old objects are useful when trying to achieve a retro look; that is where it has come from.

"Efficiency savings" is the new expression for "putting folk out of work".
(same as "quantitative easing" is the new expression for "massive devaluation".)

Fewer folk to do the actual work, but expected to accomplish more than more folk did in the first place.

I think I use vintage for over 50 years old - but mostly avoid "retro". It means too many different things to too many folk!

IMHO, as just my opinion -- that is all......


Vintage means to me (IMHO) = less than 100 years old

Antique means to me (IMHO) = Greater than 100 years old

Retro means to me (IMHO) = the 60's/70's/80's era, around  that period

Deco means to me (IMHO) = the 30's/40's/50's era, around that period

Mid Modern/or Eames means to me (IMHO) = the 50's/60's/70's era, around that period

IMHO - the word RETRO does not mean 'in retrospective' ... but rather a period of time in the Past



The term 'in retrospective' means to me (as how I see it) it means  " In the style of_______"  .

So this could mean something *New* but is designed with a certain Flair *to Copy* that style from that period, IMHO:

~ Designed in the style of Mid-Modern (but new)
~ Designed in the style of Deco Period (but new)
~ Designed in the style of Eames Style (but new)

 :24: :24:  Of course, this is just MO, and different countries may call things/or look at things differently too.  So this is just how I kinda look at things here in Canada.  Which could be totally wrong...but it might be just a Canadian thing



I hate when I see something made in the 90's and it is called "Antique"        (http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/sauer/angry-smiley-005.gif)            LOL

IMHO - the word RETRO does not mean 'in retrospective' ... but rather a period of time in the Past

Had a discussion about this not too long ago, and it turned out that 'retro', as applied to design, comes directly from 1970s France where rétro described brand new fashion harking back to 1940s aesthetics. It was with this meaning (of new things recalling the recent past) that it was adopted into English.

No idea when, or why, 'retro' and 'vintage' became interchangeable. As with most of my gripes about the world of design, eBay and rubbish television is probably to blame.

It's a healthy thing that language changes and moves on  and I'm sure throughout the use of the Language of whichever country, over time, words have come to be used for different meanings as society changes.  There is nothing wrong with that.  Change is good and language remains exciting and fluid because of new words and meanings.
I do agree that the original use of the word 'retro' was to describe something new but in the style of as you write - and I'm sure ebay and the media do have something to do with the incorrect use of the word 'retro' from it's pure intention and meaning.  However if it means someone views my item because that is their search word, then I'm happy to use it where I feel it is appropriate  :sun:

Lol....that is the truth.   Perfectly stated

Seen things on Ebay listed as "Retro Vintage Antique Mid-Modern Glass Vase".  Tag words do help in ads, and might cause a buyer to take a look.  It only takes one buyer looking for the right thing (wording) in an ad.  I like that as I feel the seller takes an interest/pride in their item to (try) to describe it.

 
Not like some ads that cover every word under the sun such as:
 "Rare Retro Vintage Antique Mid-Modern Glass Vase made by either Murano, Czech, Chalet, or chinese"    :24: :24: :24:

To me Ads that throw Every word out -- are more desperate sellers and do not care/know their item, IMHO -- and want every possible tag word they can find...LOL, MO

I don't mind language evolving with the times... but it grates when words/phrases that have very specific and useful meanings suddenly mean something that already has a name. "Begging the question" is one of them.

I like that as I feel the seller takes an interest/pride in their item to (try) to describe it.
Each to their own, obviously, but a litany of keywords - even if tangentially related to the item - is always a poor substitution for proper research and attribution when it comes to making me want to splash my cash.

It's relative, of course. Even "vintage retro vase" is better than simply "vase". But only just.  ;D

Out of interest where are you living Thomas.  Most of the pieces in your collection would be unprocurable here in Australia, and postage is poisonous to get larger items here - fortunately I mainly collect small items.

Keith:  The ginbari vases are not marked.  I bought them because the design is a scene.  Usually I see flowers, birds or fish.  I thought the scenery was unusual.  The small vase is marked.  There is a vase like it at the following URL.  It is labeled Meiji Egret Ginbari vase by Tsunekawa Taiichiro 1903.  My vase may be Meiji but it is not by Taiichiro.  The marks are different.  I don't know who made my vase.  The vases look nice in the cabinet but they are not perfect.  There is considerable crazing in the pair and the smaller vase has a little crazing but not as much.  Thank you for your kind remarks.   http://idcloisonne.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/marks/.pond/upginbarivasesignedbird2.jpg.w180h328.jpg

Ross:  I'm glad you like the Tiffany decanter.  It is marked "L C Tiffany Favrille" on the base.  The wines are marked "LCT".   I live in Eastern USA about 3 hours southwest of Washington, DC.  I have actually had a couple of items shipped to me from Australia so I'm familiar with the postage.  In fact, the postage was more than I paid for the items.  One seller did tell me he could save me postage if I wanted it shipped by land instead of air.  He explained that "by land" meant the package would cross the Pacific on a steamer.  He said it would take about 2 months to receive it.  I passed.  The 2 months was probably assuming the steamer docked on the west coast.  If it went through the Panama Canal and docked on the east coast, I would probably still be waiting for it.

Not to mention the power bills in our new carbon tax world!

Imagine the same thing done with a large glass window (shop size) with the wall Easterly facing so you get the relatively cool morning sun.  Or perhaps a Southerly/Northerly facing wall where the sun doesn't shine onto the glass.  Sorry about those who live where the sun rarely shines - but only two years ago we had a 46.5°C day or in the old scale 115.5°F - so you can imagine with heat that intense in the Sun you really might set fire to the shelves.  And that I might point out is in Melbourne - on the coast - not inland.

All that said what a beautiful result.

It would be good if museums would display glass like this!

(I'm afraid I was much more interested in the Vladimir Klein at the top of the page - I adore Vladimir Klein's work  :love:

Well it being the end of a forgettable year for me I thought I should celebrate it with a Scottish Hogmanay disoplay of most of my Scottish collection.  For a McKenzie whose male ancestors came from beside Eilean Donan Castle it seemed appropriate.  Happy Old & New Year to everyone.  I intend to have a better one this year.

Ross

Ross,  that is a lovely selection of Scottish glass.....I have yet to find a Chris Dodds Mushroom,  but I have lots of his animals (as if you didn't know!)....perhaps I should get them all together one day and take a picture....Selkirk, Chris Dodds and Caithness are my favourites.
Did I tell you BTW that I had bought anothe Alan Fox glass bird......here in UK!!  Hooray, reasonable postage!  When I geth all the Christmas stuff put away,  I will take a picture of it and email it to you.....unless everyone wants to see it!!

Hi Ross, great selection!

 I am only Scot "connected"  by marriage (does that still count when one is widowed I wonder?) but I feel the urge to get out the Caithness for New Year coming over me - I'll just have to brave the shed and the redbacks to get to it all!

What is the bowl on the top right top of cabinet? You have just said Caithness but it is not one I am familiar with?

And happy and healthy New Year to you and yours.

regards

Jackie

I'm a bargain hunter for sure Selina, the most I've ever paid for any piece was £35 for a new piece by Allister Malcolm. Most of my collection cost just a couple of pounds each.

Well I HAUNT ebay LOL But what kills me is the postage to Australia. And I've read that its the same for anyone buying from here. I see some lovely items go for 9.99 and then its $40 postage We just dont seem to have the variety or the volume of great glass here. At least not where I am...:( Saving my pennies for a trip to the UK I think...Im originally from there and all my relatives are still there.... I'm dying to go to one of the flea markets or boot sales, or whatever they are called. I will be picking everyone's brains for the best one to go to :) And I guess I will take an empty suitcase with me LOL

Lovely bargain for 99p btw  :hiclp:

What part of the UK were you originally from Selina?
There is always a warm welcome here if you need somewhere to stay....just had an eBay pen friend come over to stay in the Summer, and it was such good fun.......plenty of room and some pretty good boot fairs, Charity shops and the like!

Originally from Kent, but I was only young when we left. My nan still lives there but she's 92 and not very well. My aunts and uncles and cousins all live in various areas around there. Not any great distance away though. I came back in the 90's but the Aussie dollar was worth about 33 cents to the pound! So there was no hope of buying anything and I was 'into' beanie babies and toy collecting then LOL. Can you believe I used to hate glass..... the things I threw away :(
And let me know if there is anything special you are looking for...like I said I haunt ebay and I've passed on so many bargains purely because of postage...but Im always happy to pass on items to anyone else. Id rather see a glass lover get an item and know its going to be preserved and looked after. I've bought a few lovely Victorian vases over the years and been devastated when they have arrived here smashed, so any chance to save some lovely glass and Im there LOL. It also put me off buying from overseas....

Post by: selina on December 31, 2011, 06:57:12 AM
Sure :) Only info I ever had on it was... its really, really old end of day glass. Bought from a lady at a car swap meet and it was practically forced on me! I didn't actually like it for a long time. I bought it over 10 years ago? For about $7 from memory.
And now after giving it a dust and a clean, I noticed that it may have had gold gilding around the edge..either that or inground dirt LOL

(added note... On the Kralik.com website it looks very similar to the Kralik Harlequin Opalescent on the Kralik Visual Decor Index A thru M )

Presumably Leni the vases are of Leda  :24: :24: :24:.

Intriguing, no one seems to have created a black swan - as we get here in Australia.  They would make a stunning piece of work with the bright red beak and the white feathers nearer the tail.

And don't worry about damage - loads of my glass has damage as well!  When I started collecting it was a way of getting hold of pieces I couldn't otherwise afford, and most of it 'displays well', as the saying goes, when turned in the right orientation   ;) ;D

Leni, that is a beautiful pendant....and to have it specially made for you, what treasure!

I should just correct myself - Ray didn't actually make this specially for me.  He made it from his collection of canes as a paperweight 'button', intending it to be encased in glass at a future opportunity.  However, I was visiting him and we were discussing swans and he said to me "As a swan collector and a paperweight collector you would probably like this".  I did indeed like it, so Ray sold it to me to have it made into a pendant by a jeweller friend of mine  :)

Post by: Lustrousstone on January 01, 2012, 01:34:17 PM
Very little enamelled Bohemian stuff is signed and any signature is more likely to be the individual painter rather than the manufacturer (of the glass) or the refiner (a company that bought glass to decorate).

Marcus doesn't visit any more.

Go to your profile and add a signature there Trudy. Then you don't have to remember.

Told you I stayed up late to catch you 'foreigners'!

I don't think your little birds are Kerry Glass...as yours are a little more sophisticated in design, with little wings, more in the style of Glory Art Glass, Isle of Wight birds, but the colours are beautiful.
Have a look at this link,  but I am not sure thry are exactly the same as yours??

Rosie, us foreigners appreciate that :) It's a lonely board when everyone is asleep LOL

Those birds do look a bit like mine :)

Keith, my two little ones are relatives also, but they are very similar to the whitefriars. And someone has to buy the ugly ones :)

Lol... that brought back an old memory. I once dated a man who proposed marriage to me by saying:  Anik, you're fat and ugly and no one will ever want you, so I'll do you a favour and marry you.

I went home and cried.  Then I started thinking that 'ugly' is purely subjective, and that at 53kg, how fat could I really be?  So, yes, I dumped him.

Unfortunately at the time, I did not realise this man was a sociopath.  You cannot finish with sociopaths.  They have to finish with you. But that's all in the past.  :)

Well we should declare this the 'Year of Womanly Beauty'  and be proud of ourselves.  I am a rather plumptious lady,  but my smile deflects from that ( I hope!).
Beauty comes from within and an attitude of mind....you are lovely Anik, as are all we GMB ladies.
Next year we should have a Ladies Calendar girls calendar, with bits of our glass collection covering the bits and pieces we want to hide!!
Sorry....lets get back to 'Show me yours, I'll show you mine'...or is it the same thread? :hj:

Hi Rosie - well we've got a website packed full of pieces to show - www.thistlewoods.net  We're working on putting a lot more (and bigger) images on the Galleries at the moment, but there's a lot of our glass on our website in all the articles and features.

Keeping with the swan theme, here's another Sowerby Carnival Swan (another of my favourites).

You have some nice pieces there Keith....I like the Wedgwood pieces, especially the long tailed birdie....I have one of those by Langham, made and signed by Paul Miller when he left Wedgwood to start his own studio.  I think it is here on the board somewhere.
Just got a bird arrived today,  not sure of the maker, but got a green body with a blue blob in the centre....
I also won the Boffo Penguin tonight and one of Adam A's pieces I was hoping to win,  so that's 603 now!

I've just been outbid on an ellie and a doggie,  but there there, you can't win them all.
Anyway, I am a pumpkin again, and I have to be up early as we have had bad storms, and a tree is down in our garden, streching over into next door and the fence is down in the other neighbours, so we are helping with that!

Hi Trudy, these are a pair of Maltese Lovebirds, made in Malta by Phoenician Glass Studios. Very nice too. The writing on the base  says Phoenician glass Malta 05, so that will be the year thay were made.

It has pride of place on the desk in front of the window, Anik.
Sadly, this is where burglars have had a tendency to break in - and while they ignored all the art work, they did stand on the wave as they crunched the leaded glass panels, so it does have a few minor bits of damage - a couple of broken "drips".

I've found one of his sites - with lots of images of newer "waves". They are getting more and more adventurous - and more and more fail during the making.

Those are such beautiful pieces Sue,  and the display is, as already mentioned,  a one man show in itself.
If I didn't already know,  I would have said you liked IOW Studio Glass!

I had no idea you had been broken into....that is horrid,  the feeling of being 'invaded'  and your private space violated,  is awful.  We were burgled years ago,  but his wife reported him to the Police and we got everything back......amazingly!

Craig,  I am going to have a go at uplighting some of the glass I have,  but as the lights are fixed,  it will mean standing on my head to look at the display......probably not.....at my age!

Thank you all for your lovely displays.

You're showing your *strange* bit after all! While I was away, I tried reading my "American Studio Glass 1960-1990" (Martha Drexler-Lynn), but sadly, found it highly unhelpful for my needs.
On p.52, there is a black and white pic of a panel of judges (all named and id'd by academic position) studying some pieces of glass from the 1968 Toledo Exhibition.

One of the bits of glass looks very similar to yours. The book omits to tell you who made the glass, of course.

(it seems to be mostly an academic treatise on the acceptance of glass into art, it's not really about the glass or the artists creating the movement at all.  :grrr:  I found it very dry and unrewarding.)

But perhaps some folk like books from that angle.
Personally, I've read far more interesting academic theses, though they've been scientific rather than art subjects.

My mud items have glass on them. I like the odd bit of mud work, Ross.

The large vase in the middle (and the tall one to the left) of the third pic are by Phil Atrill. He studied with Bob Crookes.

The middle one is a "Distortion" vase (The tall one at the side is a "Horizon" Bottle.).
I think it's a fairly early "Distortion" vase. (given the price I paid and the prices they are now, and that I'd never seen one quite as complex before.)
I've found a link:

http://www.philatrill.com/categories/1/galleries/3/images/12

But these newer ones don't seem to have the opaque whitish contour lines inside the casing as well as the thin band spiralling around the outside. The yellow and purply ones might - it's hard to tell from the pics.
Better pic of mine in this thread.

Well, I wouldn't call it a sig, even though it might be described as one - it's a scratched word - possibly done quickly by the artist  or someone working with them as it were, or possibly done by the artist who couldn't use a diamond point engraver,  or possibly done by the first owner lol, or possibly even done as the name of the place of an exhibition where it might have taken part (I do have a vase signed by the artist that also has the name of the exhibition place where it was to be exhibited, so perhaps that is also a possibility)- it's one of those kind of 'sigs'  ;D

and it's not who I thought it might be as an outside guess given the 'sig', although that matters not as I just fell in love with the vase  :girlcheer:

I love the 'people' decanters in particular Greg.....and until recently, didn't see a great deal in Maltese glass, :o   but the more I see of it here on the board, Sue's and now yours, the more I am warming to it and thinking.............now where can I put the next cabinet???
I haven't done any themes recently, but it is Spring cleaning time coming up, and so I might well do one soon.....but it will be animals and birdies I'm afraid!......hope you don't mind!?

Have you any bits with cobalt blue in them?
Title: Re: (Themed) glass displays - show me yours, I'll show you mine... part 3
Post by: Greg. on January 13, 2012, 12:42:57 PM
Thanks all.

Roise, I'm quite a fan of the Riihimaki decanters, they bring a smile to my face when ever I look at them. Technically, the clear piece on the left is a Riihimaki "Ahkeraliisa" or also known as "Busy Lizzy" which is easier to remember! The other two are decanters, designed by Helena Tynell, which were inspired by a children's story originally. To date I only have two out of four that were produced, the blue one is known as 'Pikku Matti' (Little Matt) and the other 'Isoisa' (Grandfather). Look forward to seeing new pics your latest flock soon. :)

Sue, thanks, although its no where near your hoard of Mdina, I'm surprised there's not a global shortage! -  No cobalt blue pieces I'm afraid.

Thanks for all that info Greg, really interesting......the blue one reminds me of the Flour Grader's 'Fred'. I had a lot of them (yes, I know it is plastic! but in the 70's they were Juliette's playthings,)  then I sold them for a fortune on ebay and used the dosh to buy a lovely piece of Leerdam glass....a little Satin Glass Dachshund that I adore....I have two of them now,  but got outbid on a clear glass version the other night 2am!!!!....still haven't really got over it, BUT, I did get the ellie and that should arrive soon, then I will do a Leerdam animal display for this thread....OK?
Oh, another Leerdam Deer has just arrived....the one that cost £26 to pay the customs people for VAT....I didn't think you payed VAT on second hand goods????  Anyone know better than me about it?? :usd:

Roise, roughly, I gather VAT is payable on anything over £18 that's anywhere outside the EU. From memory I gather this is going to go down to £15, sometime this year, if it already hasn't! VAT is also not payable for any items purchased under £40, which are classed as a family gift. Septate to VAT, I think Customs Duty is payable on most items over £135, although the rates vary depending on the type of item, imported.

Some of this may have changed slightly this year. Just looking, I think VAT itself is not always payable, there are a number of factors involved, however, Import VAT is charged on nearly all imports by Customs and Excise, regrettably.

Hi

Just building up my collection again - I do have a lot packed away though

Photos show part of my Aseda collection - red, green and blue bamboo and dogbone vases - I think the latter also came in white (Leslie Pina - Fire & Sea pp130) - also large vase (pp128) and elongated bottle vase that I attribute to Aseda but could be Gullaskruf, also a smaller flattened off red version with made in Sweden sticker and remains of Aseda sticker

Riihimaen showing some well known vases - I have a lot more packed away

Hi everyone!
I am new in this forum and I want to share with you my humble collection.
I am fascinated with glass and crystal, it is an incredible material for everyday objects, its light and its reflection turns objects into works of art.
I tried to organized my stuff into themes:

FIRST PHOTO:
Frosted glass, a Lalique Pinsons bowl, an Etling France little vase and two INWALD vases (Forest and Pansies)

SECOND PHOTO:
Art Deco Style Pressglass Vases, some of them Czechs, two Luxval 1935 (Val Saint Lambert): "Marceau" and "Model:60" and some unknown (any information is welcomed!)

THIRD PHOTO:
Eclectic collection of Vases, Centerpieces and objects 60's and 70's style, some SKLO UNION Czech, two Argentinian "Querandi" glass vases, Vase and ashtray "sommerso" from Murano, etc

FOURTH PHOTO:
High quality cut crystal, a couple of bottles or decanters, maker unknown, two Val Saint Lambert, Belgique Centerpieces or spherical vases, a little clear crystal vase (Moser) and a light blue cut vase (maybe Moser too).

Hope you enjoy it!
Comments and any information is welcomed!

Hello Hugo.....how lovely that you have reawakened the Themed Glass Displays.....well done! Oh and welcome as well.....as we haven't 'met' yet!

I like the vase in picture 3 with the swirly pattern...... and the one in the first picture that looks like shells all over it.

I think I had better get the camera out again,  I keep promising!

Hello Rosie! thanks for your comments, the swirly pattern Vase in picture 3 is Argentinian (just as me ;)  ) it is signed  "Querandi" , Querandi was one of the finest argentinian glass and crystal manufacturer this vase is a hand made brown to clear acid etched glass vase.
The small one in the first foto is a Czech INWALD Barolac, pressedglass vase named "pansies" circa 1930.
Greetings

Yes,  thank you Hugo....Like m, I hadn't heard of Argentinian glass....so you see you never stop learning with glass (or anything else for that matter!).  I thought the little vase was shells,  but that's 'cos I'm on my little 10" laptop tonight, and so it is not so easy to see.  I have heard of the 'Pansies' vase though......I have a green Barolac John Jenkins (?) 'Butterflies' oblong vase which I count amongst my most favourite pieces.....it is in the Glass Gallery here if you want to see it.

Keith your shelves look great.  You have a gorgeous collection of different pieces.   I really want to get all colour co-ordinated but every time I try, I just cannot live with it and start adding the odd colour here and there until suddenly I realise they are all multi-coloured again  ::)
I'm trying really hard to stick to a basic 'collection' now and not be so eclectic, but it's really difficult.  I'm like a kid in a candy factory when I see something beautiful even if I know it's nothing like the pieces I already have.

John, they are stunning.  I really love the aurene pieces all together, the colours, the different shapes, so elegant.

I will put some pics together once I'm sorted out again.

I'm so pleased we have rekindled this thread again.....I too am trying to co-ordinate my pieces and have put all the neodymium glass in the Kitchen because that is where the strip lighting is and so I see it change to blue at night.....my grandson thinks it is magic! 
I'll take some pictures tomorrow and put them on here.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with glass collections in the loo. not as many as yours John.....and not such expensive taste,  but a lot of Selkirk and Langham animals watching you in there!

Also my IOW azurene glass collection has grown so much,  I think it is time to show it again,  so I will do that as well.
But as it is almost three in the morning,  I had better get off to bed!

expensive taste
Yes that has been a problem... Not so bad these days, as the collection grows there are fewer items that I want to add to it but they can be the pricier examples.

Most of my displays are mixed colour, not tried all one decor before but saying that there is plenty of variation within Isle of Wight's Aurene.

Sick of looking at a half completed display - time is of the essence at the moment.  This is just a selection of purchases from this year.

Top Shelf:-  Mainly Australian but the left hand irridescent vase is an Abelman Spiderweb

Middle Shelf:-  My aviary seems to be increasing - 2 Marcolin, a Holmegaard, 3 Finnish, & 2 from UK. My otter is hiding and the polar bear has an unusual base mark - a Diamond with an A inside, all created as a series of small raised dots.  4 Riihimaki vases, a Bertil Vallien Vase & Three Holmegaard bits.  Finally a Whitefriars suncatcher(bought here in Australia)

Bottom Shelf:-  Two "Pickle" jars & small Webb decanter. Vases from Finland(2), Caithness(2), Skridlovice(2?) and IOW.  Holmegaard Plimsoll decanter.  Canadian Carved Siku glass.  Okra perfume, TVG pwt, Squash pwt, and a small plate(? Monart).

A number of these will be posted for asssistance in attribution when I get the chance.

Hi Ross,  a little info that you might already know...the 2 birds on the RHS are Haparanda Glasbruk (as far as I know)....I have some of these with labels. The otter is Langham Glass House (but you might already know that,does it have an etched mark on the base, or even a Paul Miller signature?) and the owl on the left at the back is probably FM Konstglas if it isn't already marked.
What a lovely collection....I wondered if the green bird at the back left is another Finnish Glasbruk  piece from the Art Glass Team, does it have a label?
The white and green duck at the fromt looks remarkably like a Selkirk Scotland piece,  but I would need to see a better view to be certain....it should be labelled or engraved if it is.

Spot on with just about everything Rosie.  The bird at the extreme left is a Marcolin duck and the smaller green bird at the back near the Ronneby owl is a Napapiirin Lasi from Finland.  The small clear one is a Michael Bang from Holmegaard and the Black puffin a Hadeland.

I'd love to see some of them separately when you have time Ross, especially the Hadeland Puffin and the other Finnish Napapiirin one.  I have several of these hollow Finnish birds, all made the same way with a separate gather of glass to form the head and neck.....in fact I have 2 listed for sale at the moment because I am just about out of room for any more in the collection.  Trouble is,  I don't mind if they don't sell!! 2.30am....best get some kip...methinks!!

I have been busty taking photos as I have bought quite a lot lately.  This i9s the second half of my current purchases.

Top Shelf:-  The centre rear Strombergshyttan and the extreme left rear Orrefors have a blue sheet behind them so the engraving shows better.  There are 12  makers represented.

Middle shelf:-  Rear left corner is Slajaglas - an unusual Swedish company.

Bottom Shelf:-  LH side is an Australian Slumped glass bowl.

I have to say you have the most unusual collection Ross....each piece is so interesting.  I thought I knew my Scandi glass,  but had never heard of Slajaglas.....I will keep a look out for it.

What is the flat backed piece on the botton row with the green label?  Is it an animal or a map shape?

It really is a fascinating collection......keep taking pictures...I'm sure you have a couple of other pieces of glass!!

Ross, that is the part of Austria I am coming from! :D

It isn't the shape of Austria, but that of Styria in the South-East of Austria (easily recognizable by the piggy shape ;D), "Steiermark" in German, so "Steirisches Glas" means Styrian glass.

Never heard of that maker, but Oberglas Brnbach is in Styria...

Thank you for all opur contributions.

Gary - I started a topic http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=47412.new;topicseen#new and lo and behold it is actually early Mdina - 1970 - 1972 I am told.  A most pleasant surprise as it was simply a 'like it' buy on Ebay.

Michael - I am fascinated that I now know someone from that area.  I will be Googloing to find out more.

Thought this is stunning example of a Mdina Side Stripe deserved a few pictures.

Pictures 1,2,4 taken with flash and Picture 3 without for comparison,

Enjoy

Not being rude, Greg - my tongue is hanging out.... the bubbles in that are stupendous!
The only piece I have which has bubbles of a similar quality is a MH signed Seaward attenuated bottle from IoWSG.
I like this even better than John's one with coloured sides.
 
This one of yours is my very, very favourite-est side stripe.

Thanks Sue.  :)

I thought I was seeing things when I first saw it, the bubbles are a fabulous addition.

Here's one final pic of my Mdina Side Stripe Themed glass display for the day.

Now you're really showing off!
The last pic is a good one for illustrating both true button rims and the slightly necked, button-y ones too.  8)

Not fair,haven't a single piece of Monart,well I thought I did till I posted it here and it turned out to be one of those 'cellophane' bowls ::)

You are not alone on that Keith,I bought a large vase of ebay a few year ago thinking it was Monart but turned out to be "cellophane".

Hi Rosie thankyou for welcoming me to the forum.

I will post more pictures in the next few days as it does take a while to get the picture the right size.

its a shame the pictures cant be bigger so i can fit more in it.


I hope you all like my glass collection :)

Kind regards. :)

For all those who have an aviary like me I have included a link to Yobunny where I have just created my own aviary since I seem to have so many bird themed glass pieces.  Quite a few can do with better photos but that is something I am startinjg to think about in the medium term.  Presently I am short on time.

Gary, Greg, I'm supremely jealous.  Gary I absolutely love your eye for colour and the way the colours work together, your Monart is stunning.
Here are a few of my pieces, mostly 20's /30's but a few earlier I believe and some later

M - what is the big, beautiful, blue, bubbly vase on the right hand side of the last pic?
(I know what the glorious beast on the left is  ;) )

Post by: flying free on May 29, 2012, 11:20:20 PM
Sue, thanks for asking  :)  it's not bubbly (the photo isn't close enough to see the decor), it has a crackle interior cased with a layer with colour swooshes and then cased again.  Very large, extremely heavy. Confirmed as Leveille by finding one in the same colour and coloured swooshes signed on the base, but a different shape.  Mine is not signed.  Just as gorgeous as the one on the left with silver inclusions  :)

Beautiful display M, love the colours and variety.  :)

Slightly off topic, do you mind me enquiring where you purchased your glass shelves/stand, they show of the glass  really well and also look sturdy enough to ease any fears of accidents!- I've been on the look out for some recently, although haven't been able to find anything that fits the bill.

at the car boot for a tenner :-[
I wish I could find another taller set the same but I've absolutely no idea who made them unfortunately.   I cannot bring myself to pay huge sums for shelving and equally I can only stand to look at certain types of shelves so displaying my glass is always a dilemma.  They work quite well, but I would prefer to have open sided shelving really.
Sorry I cant' help more

Thanks M, you can't go far wrong for a tenner.  :)

Hopefully, something similar will crop up if I keep my eyes peeled and hopefully at a similar price!

Many thanks

Keeping it minimal with two huge smoke-coloured pieces (L-R: an Antonio Da Ros sculpture for Cenedese and a flared vase by Luciano Vistosi).
