    My name is susie melville and i have been an avid collector and dealer in mainly glass for about a decade.
    I live in Scotland and am very lucky to be in an area where there are many vintage pieces of glass from around the world turning up on a regular basis at my local auctions.
    Over time i have built up a lot of knowledge and where possible i am always happy to id or help with others research.
    Sometimes i'll find things which are not so easy to id which is how i found this marvelous forum.

    The first one is Doric and Pansy Jeannette depression glass butter dish and lid in teal- its quite a rarity. Condition is very good but it does have one scratch

    the second is Kralik shell glass and its unbelievably mint.

    The 3rd is detail of the foot.

    Welcome. Was it the Kralik that brought you here?

    Yes it was the Kralik that brought me here and it allowed me to positively ID it. It is astonishingly modern looking considering it was made in about 1905 or so. I am not that familiar with czech glass of this period so did a lot of hunting around. Then i saw the marvelous collection on here.

    Welcome! You will find that while there are dealers and collectors of a wide variety of items here, one of the things most of us "collect" are interesting and like minded people - and you appear to be a knowledgeable and interesting addition to "our" menage. Very glad you found us!

    Thanks Mansons2005,
    i can drone on about glass for hours but have to remember that not every one shares my obsession. Its such a large subject i don't think anyone can know it all. My education in glass is the opposite to these who do fine art - find a pile, work out what you have, keep the bits you like, sell the rest. I have been operating like this for a long time. So i often come across stuff i would not have normally gone out and bought. I hope that over time i can amuse and puzzle you all.

    Post your pictures in the Pottery, Glass, and Porcelain forum listed below, for more visibility. I'm not sure whether everybody looks at this Introductions forum.
