Orange Cloud Glass for the New Year

A lot of my orange cloud glass pieces (99%) were acquired in New Zealand and Australia. I was told that in early 20th century, orange was not popular for domestic market in the UK and majority of the production was exported, especially to this part of the world. I bought my first orange piece (column vase in the middle) about 14 years ago from an old collectible shop in Manukau Road in Auckland. One of the shorter vases above was bought from the collectible market in Alexandra Park for $4.

Once deemed too loud, orange cloud glass is now much sought after amongst cloud glass collectors. I am lucky to have obtained my orange pieces when they were not too pricey.
