Hello everyone,

I just added a new page with a lot of different PALAZZO'S. I like them so much as each of them is different.

http://www.swisslady.com

You will find the site under "MY COLLECTION" page 5.

Hi Ann !
I think it's impossible to find a palazzo wich looks exactly like an other [Big Grin] . No twins only individuals.

Hi Brigitte !
Let us all have a chance to get one [Silly] [Big Grin]

Best wishes !
Michaela

You have a lovely collection. Thanks for sharing [Big Grin]

Hi Michaela,

So if I have one that matches Brigittes that one would be a very rare one?? [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [New Laugh]

I know that it would be impossible as the flowers on the tops were all done by hand not machine.

So Brigitte, how many are you trying to get? You can't have them all.

Please don't blame me too much for bidding on them, as it's the only chance for me to buy solids. You collectors in the US have at least the chance to find them at the various conventions, at estate sales, antique shops etc., etc.

Michaela, There were 2 on this site's sales and no one bought them, but me. [Puzzled] [Puzzled]

Does anyone eventually have a party cake for sale?? I need another one for my bakery. Please contact me swisslady@swisslady.com , thanks.

Brigitte: Your collection is so beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing it. Sure enough, the one I sold you is different from the one I still have and unlike any of the others on your site. Since they are all unique, do you think one person did the hand-painting or were there several artists involved?

They look like they were made by drops of special paint into the hot glass and with a stylis(small stick) you move the paint around to make a pattern before the glass hardens. The design is inside the glass . The glass lid would then be placed in the brass setting. Since it is a dome shape this would be done inverted.
You have very little time to do this before the glass hardens.
Even one person doing this can never make the same pattern twice. If they were handpainted they would be more alike. And a decal would be exactly alike.

I have done this type of painting and it is quite easy. [Big Grin]

All of you have done this same thing when making a marble cake. [Big Grin]

Hi Brigitte,
A very impressive collection of Palazzo Tea Flowers! [Silly] [New Laugh]

Are there any other solids that you have collected a lot of because of the variations?

Wow, did not know before that there are variations. They are different but yet so similar. It will be difficult to differentiate.

You can play a game, Zigsaw puzzle, with all these. Print the Page 5 out with a color printer then change all the plazzos in different locations, after that, try putting them back to the original positions with the guide from picture you have printed. I wonder how long it will takes. [Big Grin]

I do declare, Brigitte, this is an amazing sight to see. Now, I know why I couldn't win a bid on the Palazzo's. What a treasure you have! I truly admire your collection and all the hard work behind it. Congratulations on a job well done.
What's this talk about Brigitte's Board game [New Laugh] I can see then now in stores around the globe. Something to consider.
Take care,
KK [Big Grin]
