Whenever I've had the opportunity to visit the V&A Museum I always visit the glass gallery. I arrived a little early on the day that I met Kate and Karol-Ann so that I could spend some time there again. I love the staircase in the gallery and, while I prefer contemporary glass, I love that they have an extensive collection of glass from all eras. Here are a few photos that I took.
Colorbox 1 - 5
I didn't get the date on this one but it's a very early piece that I think fits into comtemporary glass perfectly.

This last photo gave me a good laugh. Do you remember Visions cookware? I had a set and I LOVED it. Of course, being glass, it all broke. The last piece I had was a small saucepan that I used often. Recently when Chris was visiting/caring for his Dad he saw that there was a collection of Visions saucepans in the kitchen. No one cooks much there anymore so he bought one of the small saucepans back for me. I was thrilled.
I took this photo to prove to Chris that Visions cookware is important enough to be in the V&A.
