A GLASS COLLECTION – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I have an extensive glass collection. It is scattered all through my house. It’s my pride and joy in decorating. I thought I would share some of my collection with you. I hope you enjoy it!

    • Glad you too appreciate glass as an art form. I set up an entire wall of bookcases to showcase some of my glass collection. I even installed lighting behind the glass to show it off. It’s ver dramatic. I’ll add a photo of the bookcase to my next blog about my glass.

    • I don’t know the designers or origin of mostnpieces. I got many online and many at antique shops and exhibits, so I don’t know much about each piece. The bowls came from a mid century modern design shop, and some of the paperweights. So I at least know the time period they came from.

    • I love the curves on the bowls too. I’m attracted to curvy, swirly pieces. They are particularly dramatic in glass.

    • Thanks, Marilyn. Coming from you, that’s quite a compliment. I always looked for pieces that were particularly vivid or unique. So there’s a great deal of variety in my collection, even among the paperweights.

  1. These are beautiful, especially the bowl and the paperweight that follows it in this post! I also have a collection of paperweights, collected from such places as Mt St Helens, Corning NY, and the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. They’re all packed for my projected move early next year, and I can’t wait to see them again!
