5. Collecting

Being a keen collector I already have a considerable collection of more than 600 different bulb vases, but I am always ready to add interesting ones to it. Literature about the subject, such as catalogues also interests me greatly. I have some 200 duplicate glasses which I am willing to swap or sell.

Picture 9 is from an article In Margriet Antiek in 1999 which shows some of my vases.

Picture 10 is an advertisement in 'Sempervirens' of 1879 with a remarkable vase. Can anyone help me to add it to my collection? We live nearby the famous Keukenhof flower gardens in Lisse (only 10 minutes away) and the historical cities of Haarlem, Leiden and Amsterdam (15 - 25 minutes). If you are interested, contact me on my e-mail address: nl.kennemerend@bollenglazen (however reverse the sequence to prevent spam)
