  1. Thanks thnman...we cross paths a lot on different sites for our mutual love of Art Deco!
  2. It is a Howard Pierce piece. It appears on page 56 of the "Collector's Encyclopedia of Howard Pierce Porcelain" by Dommel. There's a pair of foxes worth $75-100 for the pair according to the book.
  3. It's a great find.
  4. I think it might be a variation of a rare, Art Deco Waltham clock in the "Fryart" glass line, as seen here:
  5. Wow...I bought a set of 6 of them in perfect condition on Ebay as well for only $17!
  6. I have the exact same set, although I think they are more like juice glasses than cocktail cups.
  7. Just when I hadn't seen one of these available for sale for awhile, one shows up on Ebay and sells for around $450.00:
  8. Wow...given that incredible story, I would have arranged to have that clock returned to her.
  9. Beautiful.
  10. Looks like Rago Auctions in 2002 attributed these cocktail cups to Von Nessen. Love the Von Nessen tray that goes with them:
  11. Futuristic is the right adjective to describe it!
  12. It's very organic in the design. It reminds me of the Eva Zeisel piece I found recently (which is Gobelin 8):
  13. It boggles my mind how a similar cobalt version of this clock with so much damage commanded such a high auction price on Ebay:
  14. I want one now! Can I ask how much you paid for it?
  15. The shape number is too early to be hers, as indicated in my text with the quote from the curator at the Brohan Museum.
  16. I think the design of this box rivals my Schramberg Zeisel bowl. It's a shame that it is damaged.
  17. Thanks. I've being waiting awhile to find a good ceramic piece by Eva Zeisel. Even though the design of the glaze is hers, the shape of the bowl is not. Evidently, there is some debate that because th...
  18. Sean...I've uploaded a picture of the manufacturer's mark.
  19. Please donate it to my Art Deco collection if you ever decide to depart with it. :)
  20. Beautiful.
  21. Come over for dinner, and I'll use them, as long as you wear your Cleopatra hat...
  22. Oh the frame is lovely too, and it suits the picture well.
  23. I want that photo badly...!
  24. Surprised that an identical Elgin Otis cigarette box just sold on Ebay for around $750.00! Of course, that one appears to have the original lighter with the set, but still...
  25. I have a HEM vase too, that I'll have to post some pics. It's not nearly as nice as yours though.
  26. Great clock. I would love to have one in my collection too! Did you find this one without cracks in the catalin? Beautiful.
  27. Yeah...time for some Art Deco Chase items. I have several in my collection!
  28. Again, I'm always surprised of how modern the designs of such things were in the 1930's. These lamps could easily be sold as contemporary decor.
  29. Here's a pair for sale on Ebay for what I consider to be a good price if anyone is interested in getting them (especially since another seller is trying to sell just one for $1200.00!): http://ww...
  30. Honestly, I wish I had picked up another one of these Gainsborough vases years ago when they could be found easily and inexpensively. I think a pair would make a striking set of mantle pieces.
  31. Thanks Sean...Kensington items seem to be fairly easy to find. There's only a few that I really like, and this is one of them. Do you have this vase too?
  32. Thanks...did you find any Kensington Ware at your antique shop there? I imagine there would be a lot to find in the local area.
  33. If anyone is interested in purchasing one, a cobalt glass version of this clock is up for auction on Ebay (shame it has a chip in the glass though):
  34. This is such a funky item!
  35. Looks great. Please check out the restored Zenith chairside model in my collection.
  36. Mystery solved. Thanks for all the help in identifying the designer.
  37. Mystery solved. Thanks for all the help in identifying the designer.
  38. Thank you so much! Now I need to find more information on Pierre Devouge. And I see I'm missing some really nice ones from the set!
  39. Hi me, it looks like a P.V.. But I could be's very hard to see.
  40. Yes...I've tried my best to get a picture of the very small hallmark and added it above. To me, it looks like a P.V....any help in identifying it would be great. Thanks.
  41. I need a dozen of these.
  42. Hi Tony...the mark is so small, but I took some pics of it and will email it to you. It looks like P.V. to me. Sending it now. Let me know if you can identify it!
  43. Too cool...
  44. Thank you! They are fabulous. If we lived together, our house would be bursting with Art Deco (mine is already)
  45. Have one too! Speaking of bygone dining items, check out my deco knife rests that I posted today. :)
  46. Art Deco period. I would guess it's circa 1930's. Is there a patent number on it? If so, you can look up the date then.
  47. Nice piece. This is mostly likely an Art Deco Heisey vase in the Nimrod pattern designed by Wilhelm Hunt Diederich. You can see a similar piece here:
  48. There are two similar Rainbault clocks for sale on Ebay now if anyone is looking for one: http://w...
  49. I'm moving to Valencia then with my collection. ;)
  50. Thanks guys...I love these too! I also agree with you, Racer, about the prices in the Millers' guides being over inflated. I often wonder how they calculate market value for items in their guides.
