It looks like I've inspired a few folks around here to collect these beautiful glass and porcelain gems! Here's my buddy, Shem, with his collection of glass and porcelain! There wasn't that much great stuff there, but still, I love the idea! The piece that I liked was his brown U-172. In this picture he's holding a THOMAS porcelain signal which he told em he got for his birthday. Now, everyone here knows how involved you must be if you start to get these for birthdays and Christmases. I'm in the process of picking out some nice stuff for his small collection.
