Today we have ADDED two stunningly rare FRITZ HECKERT Hock wine glasses, enamelled and gilded in the Islamic style, to the ENAMELLED GLASS PAGE.
2 AUGUST 2017
Despite the total madness and chaos that London suffered at the weekend to accommodate the Prudential cycle race with many dealers unable to get into town to open their shops, Portobello Road Antiques Market was busy with tourists on Saturday and we made some major sales from our shop, although nothing that was illustrated on the web site.
Today one of our new clients has telephoned to buy from the web site and we have SOLD the final beautiful MOSER hand cut and gilded hock glass from the MOSER PAGE.
28 JULY 2017
THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE WRITTEN WITH CONCERN AND KIND COMMENTS ABOUT THE VASE THAT WAS STOLEN FROM OUR STAND AT PORTOBELLO ROAD LAST WEEK. Thankfully such acts do not happen very often.
We have today made a supreme effort to ADD some exciting new pieces to the web site!
We have ADDED a charming violets miniature vase to the GALLE PAGE.
We have ADDED no less than FOUR stunning and totally different rare DAUM miniature vases and salts to the DAUM PAGE.
We have also ADDED a beautiful WMF MYRA KRYSTAL vase and a very rare ALMERIC WALTER miniature pate-de verre vase to the OTHER GLASS HOUSES PAGE.
We hope that there s something to excite you amongst these new additions.

Another busy Saturday in our shop at the weekend but interestingly this time all the SALES were to Japanese trade buyers.
The lovely GALLE Pilgrim vase with Honeysuckle cameo glass design illustrated on the GALLE PAGE SOLD along with a superb GALLE cameo glass landscape vase not shown on the web site.
The three charming MOSER Art Nouveau spill vases SOLD from the MOSER PAGE and a superb LALIQUE Cat similar to one showing on the RENE LALIQUE PAGE SOLD to a new Japanese Dealer.
Unfortunately we also had our first THEFT from the shop in many years when the beautiful GALLE cameo glass landscape vase in blues and amethyst illustrated on the GALLE PAGE was STOLEN from our shelves.
You will see from this blog that many of our rare pieces sell to other dealers. If the 'trade' are buying our stock then collectors can be assured of getting pieces at very reasonable prices. Come and see us at Portobello Road on any Saturday.
ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE PIECES ON THE WEBSITE ARE SOLD, WE ALWAYS HOLD A LARGE STOCK OF SIMILAR ITEMS AND WILL CONSTANTLY TRY TO UPDATE THE SITE WITH SOME OF THESE NEW ACQUISITIONS.
