  1. Women are amazing! Balancing in heels, on soft earth with your arms around two children and it looks like there is some wind too and yet, the skirt is perfectly arranged as is she. Great picture of a ...
  2. Oh I love this. Fire and Ice in perfect harmony. Who knew. Got to get an opal ring.
  3. I know nothing about this but I love it. Setting, stone, rubies and little diamonds too. I think somehow the small stones make the center even more spectacular. Rather like putting a person in a lands...

  10. Do you think it was made to accommodate a pillar candle? And if so, I wonder if that would help anyone in terms of an ID? I don't know if that application could help date it or help with at least narr...

  14. With regard to second guessing the price you paid, Do you like the lighters? If so and you have already paid for them, then yes, you got a good deal. Enjoy them. Dunhill has or at least did have great...
  15. This texture reminds me of bark, perhaps you could start there?
  16. I had this lighter in silver. Bought it in Switzerland the summer of 1970. If I remember correctly it was called Tartan. I have no idea if that will help you. Or if indeed that same pattern was used ...
  17. I am drooling! It is gorgeous. Bob's modesty is only outdone by his knowledge. He is the go to guy for Oil Lamps. Franken lamp yes but it will look fabulous when you are finished with it. I am thrill...
