    I'm dealing with European oil lamps, electric lamps, Victorian opaline glassware, midcentury murano glass and Majolica clocks of 19-20th centuries since 2006. Also I'm interested in European pieces for Ottoman Market. I'm sure I'll find a lot of useful information here. Thank you for letting me in.

    Thank you so much cxgirl. I'm looking forward to share my lamp collection and information about the catalogs between 1900-1915. I hope most people will enjoy it.

    Welcome to the forum Emre,
    I have been to Izmir and Dalaman and also Turgutreis for holidays several times.

    Thank you all. Ownedbybear, unfortunately Turkish pottery design nowadays is so weak. They are only replicating old designs in bad quality :( So lets say it was used to be. daveydempsey, I also like to spend holidays in Yalıkavak, not far from Turgutreis. But unfortunately it is getting more expensive and expensive day by day. Let me know if you visit Turkey again, İzmir and Bodrum are so close. I can give you an antique dealers trip.

    Why is your ancient country named after a bird native only to the new world?

    I will let you know for sure, thank you.
    My next trip to Turkey will be for about 3-5 days, I drive to the Greek Islands (Corfu). I will probably get a car ferry to Rhodes and then a ferry to Marmaris or Bodrum.

    Thanks ownedbybear :) It is not related with the bird actually. Only in English there is a funny and misfortuned matching. Originaly in Turkish, it is Türkiye, not Turkey :)

    daveydempsey I dont know when are you planning to visit but if its soon, and if its only for fun, I recommend you to wait for the spring, now the season is dead there.

    It will be summer time within the next 3 years, I won`t drive over in the winter as I have to go over the Austrian or Swiss Alps into Northern Italy which is no fun in the snow & ice :cool:

    Then I suggest you to visit Çeşme and Alaçatı. There is a really good antique market in Alaçatı, it is a nice 19th cc town. Lots of local foods (vegetable Aegean kitchen) and nice hotels.
