It's simple: I love collectible glass! From antique art glass to depression and vintage glass collectibles, I offer the glass collector an array of glassware - decorative bowls, figurines, paperweights, stemware, and vases - from various points around the world. With a colorful selection that goes far beyond clear - cranberry, red, blue, green, pink and butterscotch orange, you'll even find some white milk glass and a bit of marbled slag too. Most of the glass available here at Flashback Alley was made in the U.S.A., with a nice Italian and Czech selection and others possibly from Europe.

A beautiful blue opalescent footed salver in the Tokyo pattern by Jefferson Glass, a gorgeous antique piece of glass that I have seen referred to as a card receiver, compote, tidbit tray, and even a donut plate.
