Me at Spitalfields Antiques Market July 2017

A snapshot of my Summer Exhibition 2016 table featuring my spectacular large
Coronation Vase, limited production by Stuart marked under. A fabulous piece.
Now sold.

At Spitalfields Antiques Market on 7th November. In the foreground right, an
orange Mdina strapped vase; foreground a Whitefriars paperweight with
pattern no under; centre a mysterious and yet unidentified jug without handle
signed and  dated but difficult to decipher (an ideas?); and on left a mad and fun 1970s
chunky glass-like-looking lampbase -made of resin - but good glass look alike..

                   A set of 6 1940s Murano sconces - mad, wonderful, colourful
                   bearing fruits and drops. You can have them re-wired or else
                   just put candles in them and hang on wall . Dead easy.
                   Fun fun fun. £700 a pair. Now all sold.

         A children's Akra agate glass tea set. American 1920/30s with
          impressed Akra trademark under of a crow carrying a marble in its beak.

                           Blackberry motif, sets in pressed glass.

  For those of you who have come to my sales last year , I hope you
were pleased with what you bought. Keeping an eye on my website will keep you
updated with my movements,
but in the meantime do come and browse any time by prior arrangement -
or of course, hope to see you at one of my sales. My glass collection is extensive, so the website
does not show everything by any means.
