Stylish Ermanno Toso design for Fratelli Toso - triangular bowl with murrines
This is one we've held onto since 2006 as a particularly fine example of this style, but the time has come to let it go. Other examples in this style have a mix of murrines (slices of glass cane) of lots of different flower patterns but this one h...

Signed Lindstrand Kosta off-centre green vase set
We love these Kosta off-centre green vases. The off-centre design was the innovation of master glassblower Bengt Hientze and designer Vicke Lindstrand. The bold green confounds those who see Swedish mid-century glass as being all austere greys a...

Labelled Finnish ashtray designed by Markku Salo for Arabia 1984
This doesn't have a cigarette rest, but it was probably designed as an ashtray (now a rarity because no-one makes them anymore). This piece by Finnish designer Markku Salo pays homage to the seminal Aalto bowl (see the last photo), the design of ...

Spend a little time on our video

Excuse us if we show off a little.  The glass in the video ranges from $50 to $5000.  With one or two exceptions, it's glass from the most recent pieces we've listed on our site - about 50-60 pieces from our reference numbers 2500-2800.  Some of them are sold, some aren't.  We wanted to give people a snapshot, and it's something you can show someone else and - in 3 minutes - give them an appreciation for some of the range and beauty of mid-century "modernist" glass.


Merry Christmas

Changes to the colour scheme of our website

If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
William Morris, designer (1834-1896)

Morris' rule can be applied to our website too, I think.  Our glass should be beautiful; everything else on the website should be useful.  The point of the website is to show off the glass, and glass displays best against a black or white background, therefore the website's colours should be black and white.  Black was a little too severe so we've gone with charcoal.  At the same time we've improved the speed of loading of the site.  We hope you like it.
