    1+. And so well photographed. I love the snowy white house in the background of some of the photos! So peaceful and still. I adore your milk glass bottles!

    Here's another view of the bookcase so you can get your bearings.



    I mix in perfume with other collected items. There is the Portrait of the Lady.

    This was listed as Loetz, I believe this is a 'millefiore' type.



    A red-top Caron Narcisse bottle. A very early bohemian style cranberry glass atomizer with enamel decoration.



    Sabino, perfume & powder box/case. (It's hard to see, those are swallows on the powder box.)

    hi This is actually Lapis glass named after the stone Lapis Lazuli which was much prized in ancient times the Pharos having costly objects made from it buried with them in their tombs.
    . Malachite is green.

    hi this is not by Joseph Hoffman but Heinrich Hofffman .
    Heinrich Hoffmann (1875 - 1939 ) was prominent among glass makers at the luxury level of vanity glass production.

    Hi, are you talking about the green glass one with the woman on top? It doesn't seem to be listed under Heinrich on this website. (Thanks for this website, BTW, I'm joining up!) However, I do have this one I pasted in, with the ivy leaves in the malachite. I haven't photographed it yet.

    Thanks for setting me straight on the malachite/lapis thing. Of course I knew lapis was blue. I don't know why I called it malachite, DOH!

    Do you happen to know how I can get some values assigned to these bottles? You've been most helpful.

    I just do seaches on the net to get a rough idea whet some thing is worth. It varies as to where and when and who is selling . A small store or a private person or in an up market store in New York or major capital city arround the world .
    your green lady is a very desirable.

    The collection is getting better and better!

    I specially loved the red czech cut glass from the 20s and the fantastic Garniture Enfants de Lalique which I believe this one in particular is from the 70s!

    Thank you!

    Thanks, CastorP., So the Lalique is from the 70's? That explains why I was able to afford it. I thought I got a good price on it.

    Just hold onto it for a coupke of years, I recently (this year) saw a similar one at an auction and it actually went for about 4000 USD, which is not too shabby I thought it was going for less but it was a great surprise.

    Again, Thank you for sharing such wonderful collection!

    cheers

    WOW! is there a symbol for fainting? I can't believe I was able to get this one for around $250. I thought it might be worth $1200 or so. It just shows that these things fluctuate wildly.

    Thanks, Mimi! Here's an unsigned cameo glass piece in the style of Gallé.
    The top is silver.
    I'm not sure if I should try to clean it or not.
