  2. The 'spear' is like an obelisk.
  3. Or maybe a skinny Shakespeare.
  4. Don Quixote
  5. WOW! I can't believe the transformation! (And did the ladies at the LV salon have to all look alike to get the job?)
  6. Any before pictures?
  7. Gorgeous!
  8. Yeah amazing! You do beautiful work.
  9. Yeah. It's an adjustable office chair.
  10. You forgot the little knob for the faux drawer! Nice!
  11. Wow! Great job!
  12. Nice job!
  13. Yeah - I know Neptune is the god of the sea! (So is Poseidon) The panel says Neptunus. Translator said Dutch - but I think it's also Latin.
  14. Ho2 - you post EVERYTHING in the unsolved mysteries and NEVER, EVER remove them. It gums up the stuff that is REALLY a mystery.
  15. It says Ixtapa Zihuatanejo right on the bowl.
  16. Mark the mystery solved!
  17. Finnish stamps. You can date, since we can't see the stamp. http://www.endebrock.de/stamps/st-fin.html
  18. Post a second posting of the hardware. That lock will be specific to some particular region - and maybe the hinges, too. Orient your pics correctly. (Take them in the proper orientation to begin wi...
  19. The legs are called Barley Twist.
  20. Neptunus is Dutch.
  21. Hyems is Winter in Latin.
  22. Fantastic hardware in that.
  23. Nice! Anyone ever tell you you look like Rhett Butler?
  24. Some of those cards are quite valuable. One looks decidedly Russian.
  25. MARK IT SOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  26. It's a Blue Jay. I like the rhinestones you did better than this one: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/405816616399044061/
  27. Curling iron. You'd put the metal parts on the fire/stove and curl (burn) your hair.
  28. Yeah - what means 'the granny store'?
  29. My inexpert opinion is that the prongs & the fluted edge settings indicate they are Schreiner. Those look like 'signatures' to me.
  30. It is clear that "M Krasny" was a visitor from another planet. Those are the coordinates for him (her?) to get home.
  31. RosaLinda - great!
  32. Yesh - a knock off Nancy Ann. The time period is the same as when she was sending them by the boat load to Hawaii.
  33. Maybe people just took the old Hush a byes and repainted them. I wonder if the head moves? Maybe Nancy Ann knock off.
  34. No - not Storybook, Hush-A-Bye babies.
  35. That strap with a snap was circa 1930's from what I can tell.
  36. This is why I LOVE ephemera!
  37. The are not mid century modern. They are Victorian / Nouveau.
  38. You need to show the back and any marks. The center on on bottom shelf has something written on it. They are not Victorian people. They are Louis the 14th.
  39. Here's another. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/122019471126600333/
  40. It's an early Nancy Ann doll. A cottage industry during the war. "Nancy Ann Abbott began designing dolls in 1936, just before the start of WWII. The first series, the Hush-a-Bye babies, were produ...
  41. From the comments on the Fu Dog Blog page (which has more about Foo Dogs than anyone could ever imagine). I think yours may be Buddhist. "Red ribbons must be thought of in two contexts, one is t...
  42. Here: Ribbon "The ribbon sometimes seen around a Fu Dog is more mysterious for me. I have found this story, from here, that may explain one reason for it’s appearance. “One story tells of a grea...
  43. Suanni are on the legs. Google is your friend. Try it! This site calls it a celestial ribbon in his mouth. http://www.trocadero.com/stores/101antiques/items/1347473/Antique-Chinese-Ming-Dynast...
  44. Looks like a tail. "A Chinese envoy brought a gift for the king, a necklace decorated with a figurine of a shisa. Meanwhile, at Naha bay, the village of Madanbashi was being terrorized by a sea dra...
