Bubble Stem/Bud Vases

I started collecting Stem Vases in 2011, little did I know then how addictive they would be come, or how many varieties exist. I only collect those with a clear straight stems, i.e. I don’t like colored stems or curved stems. I have tried to collect 3 of each colour, but have found purple and teal coloured vases quite rare. The turquoise and peach varieties tend to be quite common and that is the colour I began my collection with, before extending it with green and red vases.

For more information about the history and the different varieties in terms of different stems, shapes, sizes, colours etc. see the glassbudvases website, which is a great source of information. Pat has more than 450 vases!   http://www.glassbudvases.co.uk/
