  1. TWO good ideas....; - )
  2. Thanks Manikin- that's why I couldn't resist buying it!
  3. Thanks Alan...!
  4. Thanks Vintagefran- I felt exactly the same way when I saw this!
  5. Hah! Who knows? If so, then at least they were transported in style! ; - )
  6. brunswick: Great minds think alike! LOL
  7. blunderbuss2 & fortapache: You guys sure know your guns- kudos...!! PostCardCollector: That's exactly the way I feel about this photo too, so we would probably BOTH make great screen writers....
  8. That six-shooter looks pretty nifty though- S & W or a Colt? Can't tell what the rifles are......
  9. I was hoping Bonney & Clyde and their siblings...; - ) They DO look pretty mean though, and seem to be taunting the authorities...
  10. Thanks SO much Kathy- much appreciated!
  11. Thank you Scott...!
  12. Thanks TassieDevil...; - )
  13. O.M.G.! Thanks for sharing........NOT!!!!!!!!!!
  14. Comedian Jim Gaffigan refers to lobster as "bug meat" (LOL)! I'll eat it as "lobster salad" in the form of plain white chunks, but would NEVER crack open the whole creature on a plate and pick out th...
  15. Thanks so much for that highly informative and helpful analysis! However, while you successfully categorized potential danger according to the number of legs, you neglected to add the "eyes on stalks...
  16. Nope, I only fear spiders (even small ones!). I actually love it when butterflies or dragonflies land on me. Then again, I never bothered to count their legs. Do they ALSO have more than 4? If so,...
  17. I would not run and scream- I would scream and run. And probably keep screaming while I was running! Whenever I see one I call out to my wife: "spider!!", and she comes running with a glass and pi...
  18. kyratango, LOL....!! Now, had it been a spider rather than a stag beetle, then....YIKES..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ; - )
  19. Thanks vertraio50- my wife absolutely LOVED it (me too actually)!
  20. Thank you kindly Mrstyndall...!
  21. Thank you kindly czechglass5!
  22. Thank you kyratango! There are SO many beautiful things out there that, unless your name is Warren Buffet or Bill Gates, you simply HAVE to be patient and choose selectively...; - )
  23. Thanks vertraio50- I feel exactly the same way about it!
  24. Thank you Celiene!
  25. And it never needs to be recharged! ; - )
  26. Thank you SEAN68!
  27. Thanks racer4four!
  28. How times have changed- all of MY servants demand that I buy them the latest model iPhones! ; - )
  29. Thanks ho2cultcha- and it's got a great "ping" too!
  30. Thank you Celiene- that's exactly why I couldn't resist buying it...!
  31. Thanks for sharing that article, Gillian- it made for fascinating reading!
  32. That's what I love about CW- we're a bunch of fanatical collectors who all have a lot of knowledge about our specific chosen fields and are more than happy to share it with others!
  33. Thanks Scott- that was REALLY helpful in (at least partially) identifying this! Now if only I could identify the artist/carver......(probably never gonna happen).
  34. Yes indeed, smaller is safer...; - )
  35. Same here billretirecoll- I do believe we (collector guys) are all in the same boat...!! For any women/wives reading my horribly insensitive comment: "I was just kidding dear!" (whew!)
  36. And thank YOU for your extremely helpful research...; - )
  37. I'd just like to add that THIS one, though not actually "issued" by Mucha himself, IS 100% period authentic and absolutely original (1897 - 1900). I think if it was actually "manufactured" by Mucha t...
  38. welzebub, In other words: caveat emptor...!! I see this kind of thing FREQUENTLY with all kinds of so-called "antique" bronzes- especially the animal miniatures supposedly by Franz Bergman. It ...
  39. Thanks for sharing that welzebub- that's definitely the same impression that I had, but without any experience (like yours) to base it on- just my gut feeling.
  40. Yes, the "actual" color is about halfway between the first 2 pictures. The difference was most likely caused by the camera settings the seller used (I just copied the seller's photos). I've no idea ...
  41. czechglass5, Well, you are REALLY good at researching- that's for sure! There is actually no "silver application" on mine- it's all bronze, but the raised parts are more polished bronze while th...
  42. czechglass5, Wow, you must be some kind of detective (interpol?)...; - ) It looks almost exactly the same as mine (rather, my wife's), aside from the finish. Hard to tell if that one is bronze ...
  43. Welzebub, You never should have shown that to your wife- what's the matter with you?! ; - )
  44. Hi czechglass5, No, I wasn't aware of that page/link until you provided it, so thank you once again! ; - )
  45. O.k., cogito- thanks for the clarification!
  46. Thanks ho2cultcha- same here!
  47. Thanks Bill- much appreciated!
  48. Yes, kyratango, kudos to czechglass5! I did what I thought was a very thorough search on the internet and came up empty, but she somehow managed to solve the mystery!
  49. czechglass5, Thank you SO much for providing this link and confirming it...!!! ; - )
  50. Thanks Peasejean...!
