About: Pierre Marly

Pierre Marly arrived in the world of the optics around the years 45-50 at a time when the glasses were another starved of affection accessory close to the prosthesis: some forms (round dance, oval), two materials (the acetate and the doubled now), a colour (scale). Pierre Marly is going to change all this and gives a new dimension, creates new completely original forms, introduces the colour into his models.

Pierre Marly is the first person to introduce fashion into the world of eye… Continue

I feel like a bicycle...

"too tired". Okay, that joke works better when spoken. A bicycle is "two tired"... I know.

Renninger's Antiques Extravaganza in Kutztown, PA is the reason I'm so weary. The show ran April 22 (dealer set-up day, noon to dusk, no selling) and 23rd,24th,25th from 8am to 5pm.

Some dealers tend to make up their own hours. A few didn't arrive until 11am and several felt that 1pm wasn't too early to cover the tables and close up their booths. What's the harm, right? Who cares? ... you… Continue

“Glass Artists Who Aren’t Household Names” - Daryle Lambert - [ Carlson – LaLonde – Parriott ]

What you don’t know can often make you the most money. Here is an example of what I am talking about. It was your typical Tuesday night at Direct Auction in Chicago and as I was roaming around I spotted something different. At first I thought that it was a broken bowling trophy. There was a wooden base that had a glass sculpture attached to it but the glass was broken. I pieced it up just to see why anyone would consign a piece like this to auction?…

Theodore Haviland - Romeo Blank With Gold Trim - Schleiger 304 -

A favorite among Haviland China lovers is the Romeo Blank with double gold trim - identified by Arlene Schleiger as Schleiger 304.

The blank is the piece of china before it is decorated - the white ware - with its shape and embossing defined. The Romeo Blank - Schleiger 300 - is gently scalloped with some rim embossing. However, this blank really comes into its own with the variation - Schleiger 304 - with the double gold… Continue
