  1. Thanks SEAN68, I should of put a ? mark by it. Do you have a clue what it is? I thought that was as close as I could get as far as it looks. It looks a little like a hand grenade.
  2. Thanks bettywirsen. I have cleaned doilies and pillow cases like that. I will post a picture of them when I get them done. Thanks for the love Manikin Jewels aghcollectaghcollect loves vetraio...
  3. Jewels handmade gifts are special. What I was told that the women in the 19th century probably only had two or three dresses. The collars were added basic black to make it look like a different dress...
  4. Jewels, Funny. I didn't include this in the picture but there is a nice vintage store bought ribbon that was laid in the holder that reads Merry Christmas.
  5. Jewels, It is a holder for the collars.
  6. Embrace your individuality . Maybe she's adopted. Great colors
  7. Sorry 12.5 inches and about 10 lbs. a serious piece
  8. For this I'm jealous.... I have noticed also that my local thrift shops have a lot more stuff and finds. A shop owner told me she gets garage sale left overs and more people move in the summer.
  9. Thank you shareurpassion. That would be nice. I looked on line how to tell if it is coral. They suggested to dribble a little lemon on the piece and if it adheres it could be the real thing. It puddle...
  10. Thanks SEAN68. Very informative TallCakes. There is quite a few scratch wear on the foot. And either mold deformations or chips that have been smoothed out.
  11. Thank you TallCakes, is there a way to tell the difference?
  12. Thanks surfdub66. She is too big to be a creamer. I was thinking a watering can or milk pitcher. She has the 1930's look like Disney's Mickey or Bugs.
  13. The color is off in the first picture . and the number on the bottom is 410
  14. Thanks for the love racer4four,vetraio50, Moonstonelover21, & aghcollect
  15. Thank you TallCakes! I think it is the diamond glass company. The color and condition of these candles are great. Are these considered a eapg pattern? or depression glass?
  16. beauty! I definitely will look out for similar items. What size is this?
  17. Thanks Paul71. I have collected and inherited EAPG. Its good to know when you are trying to ID a pattern that you don't pull your hair out trying to find a name. I am a little obsessive about solving...
  18. I added a closer picture of the mark. It does say 17. I believe the other mark is a g with a crown. I saw in a book that the filigree part was also named flower heads.
  19. I believe my great grandfather born in Sweden in 1862 and came to the US in 1882 and his wife in 1886.
  20. Thank you Elisabethan! I'm glad you could see the hallmark. The mark after the crowns is a mark that is a capital G with a dot over it. Is that the gold content? It is a more delicate design. But I do...
  21. Thank you TallCakes. What is your favorite cake plate? Do you have this one?
  22. Thank you TallCakes. What does #41 mean?
  23. Very nice: I saw a listing under morning glory antiques web site about these. gold cuff and safety pins for baby, ladies and children. Solid gold front, rolled plate and sterling safety pins. A.C. B...
  24. The box has a stamped mark on it that Germany. I think this may be the original box.
  25. I added a picture of the bottom. and more to the description
  26. Thank you DaysiMeadows. No marks on the bottom, except one more narrow ring that runs around the inside foot. I have seen these lines identified as Kangxi or Guangxu Mark. I have a picture I could add...
  27. I should have put in the measurements. It is smaller than a spoon rest. Chinese style soup spoon is a type of spoon used in Chinese soup. It is shorter and thicker with a deep flat bowl. It is used ...
  28. No just this piece. Gorgeous art work. I have several pieces of Asian porcelain and pottery. I should make an album of them.
  29. Very nice. I see many Portugal,Italian and Mexican pottery pieces in thrift stores here. They are not the first thing grabbed by the pickers in our area. I like your explanation even better than the...
  30. The beer bottle is for perspective. I have only seen Nemadji in very small pieces. Thanks for the comments.
  31. I wanted to know if this is a piece of NEMADJI pottery. Or if anyone has seen one like it?
  32. Thank you idcloisonne! that was tremendous help! I look at the site Gotheborg.com to try and identify Asian porcelain. Do have go to sites that you could recommend. Our German Shepherd 5 years old mal...
  33. The lettering is Dutch. They are Af Venskab meaning "of friendship". Not a good picture. It is a cup people would give to their friends. Maybe as late as 1870-1880. 7.62 centimeters. Or 3 inches tal...
  34. Love the chocolate cup. I posted one similar to yours. I didn't know much about it. Thanks for sharing
  35. Thank you maryhi1956 and surfdub66 . I thought it could be a Royal Worcester piece. The reason I thought of Japanese is because of the butterflies. It does look like a nightingale. Also I was wonderi...
  36. Thank you for your comment on my bowl and my German Shepherd. He is amazing scary smart. We have a female German Shepherd and a Siberian Husky. Fortunately we have room for all. It was quite an adjust...

  38. LosFabulous, Thank you for the information. This is a beautiful piece and appreciate your insight. The cuts are deep and I see a few marks that I have seen with wheel cuts. Have you seen a lid like ...
  39. lol. Well we do have engineering geniuses in our family. I did have "the crochet lady offer to purchase it" but she didn't offer any explanation.
  40. Probably more than 10 years ago I sold a small vase like this, not knowing it was Loetz. There are a few things I have sold wishing I wouldn't have. Now I do as much research on items as I can. Thank ...
