Nice thread!  I had to look twice to see who posted about the cobalt blue glassware.  It looks like it could have come from Paul's collection.  He's a great fancier of the cobalt.  8)

True!  And the collection is still growing.  I'll try to remember to take a photo of the cape dining room window.

Please do!  I can't believe I didn't take one when I was up there.

I took a pic of some of my set with my Blackberry.


That's lovely! I like the swirls. :)

This photo was taken before a certain feline entity decided there was entirely too many beautiful old stained glass windows on the window sill and - on a sudden, nightly mission - reduced the number by 100%.   ::)  :(

Whut? A hunnerd per cent? :o
And the cat is still alive? ;) ;D
Oh, my, poor Paul!

It looked beautiful! :)
The big one in the middle, is it a painting or a real glass pane? I hope at least this one piece survived the night of cat horrors.

Chrissi, I didn't hear this story, but from what I've read here, it wasn't all the cobalt blue glassware that is gone.  Sonja's post says:

"This photo was taken before a certain feline entity decided there was entirely too many beautiful old stained glass windows on the window sill and - on a sudden, nightly mission - reduced the number by 100%."

So I'm assuming that the cat knocked over the big glass pane in the middle, and smashed it.

Yes, it was one of Bunny's first nights in the Cape house.  I heard a HUGE crash in the wee hours of the morning and ran downstairs.  Somehow, this giant leaded glass window (it's about four feet tall, from a old church) was on the floor, partially broken.  On its brief journey with gravity, it took out a few other plates and bottles on the shelf.  By some miracle, it didn't damage either the cat or the dining table. 

Bunny just looked up at me, saying "Look what I didn't do".
