The Jar is from garage sale years ago. and the cup from thrift store, The cup says only "rling" and can barely read it but it is sterling as I have a test kit, for gold,silver, and platinum, ($14.95 Amazon). The jar says 1900 so it is Art Nouveau. RW & S Deer Head also. I think jar is cut glass as it is quite sharp on all the corners. I keep my coca leaf tea I buy from Peru in it! The cup sits on my Catholic Church alter I built in my dining room! I feel part Catholic, as a Priest blessed me once, put his hands on me, said something? And gave me a camouflage black plastic Rosary in Vietnam. We were on Cambodia border. That is me with Rosary on! The man with me was killed but won Congressional Medal of Honor! Nicholas Cutinha, the bravest man in the world. I have hand grenade next to his head, ha ha . The Priest came in a helicopter and had service for Catholic's. I watched and when it was over I approached him and asked for a Rosary. He asked if I was Catholic, and I said no, I told him, I am 18, scared, and it is really bad out here and I want all the help I can get! So he blessed me, gave me the black plastic rosary. I do not know what he said as his helicopter was ready to leave and it was very noisy. Thanks for looking!

    Haha, what a great story!

    Picture #3, that squiggly decoration is called rocker-engraving, they took a flat piece of metal and rocked it back and forth, but its not very common to see and it wasn't done for very long because it was extremely time-consuming!

    Coca leaf tea??... Really?? Did you bring it from a trip or is it legal to import? I'll bet it beats the hell out of coffee
  4. toracat toracat, 2 years ago
    It is legal. I get it from Peru. There is some or was some at Amazon but more expensive and small quantities. I buy by the kilo! I still have coffee in the am but 1/2 coffee and 1/2 Guayakis, Yerba Mate, (a holly tree from the rainforest). (I like the nutty, smokey, vanilla brands), helps like coca tea with weight loss and much more healthy than coffee, but love good coffee also! Thanks for the rocker-engraving information!

    Drink coca tea the rest of the day! I use coca powder, easy to import. It is pure leaves, organic made into powder. I put in tea bags and use. Add bak-soda and put in mouth! You think you went to dentist! haha

    Amazing pieces!! I hope to find a sterling goblet myself one day, an antique one would be even better. Handsome guy, you are!! Very cool old photo. Nice memories. I need to find out more about this coca leaf importing.

    I looked up the coca leaf stuff, apparently its totally legal, and most vendors state that they contain "all of the healing properties," so apparently the alkaloids aren't removed. People are even saying that it numbs your mouth! If you bought a couple kilos of the leaf you could probably extract a usuable amount of alkaloid

    It has changed my life! I can not even begin to explain what it has done for me, but that is just me!

    Yeah I'll bet anyone would feel great after a little shot of cocaine. I'll bet it puts you in a great mood huh?

    Its like my friend had a coffee enema, she came back in a GREAT mood, talking rapidly about how wonderful she felt because her bowels had been cleaned, but she didn't realize that the reason she felt great was because she had just absorbed the amount of caffeine in 3 cups of coffee directly into her bloodstream through her colon.

    It doesn't make me talk fast, it slows the world, I think clearer, my VA Dr. monitored me, I was 275lb. He was going to start diabetic medication. I weigh now 188 lb. and off my blood pressure meds, my cholesterol meds, and pill for heartburn in am. I sleep better, if I have coffee in the late afternoon or early evening, I will not sleep good. Did you see my Poporo posting?
