  1. I like the base but OMG that modern socket etc. not so much...... I would be happy to rewire it properly and sort out a proper shade. just email me, please. lisa.beatty@gmail.com
  2. The shade is nicely done but not original to the lamp base.
  3. Figural lamp made of spelter, which is white metal, a zinc alloy. It was made in France. I am not sure about the lighting fixture. It seems rather stiff and the proportion doesn't seem right to me but...
  4. Thank you for sharing so much information about the makers.
  5. If you like it enjoy. Just be sure to have the wiring checked. It looks to be of similar quality to the prizes won at carnivals.
  6. What a great find and then to get a second surprise at home too. It was your day.
  7. Nice to see that shade.
  8. Oh my...... that may be the loveliest I have ever seen. You are so lucky to have it in your collection. Surely it is your favourite? if not with all you now about this art form do please tell me what ...
  9. Thank you so much for all of your information. I did look at a lot of Martele patterned glass and could see quite clearly that my rose bowl pattern seemed to me to be far too regular to be Martele, so...
  10. Thank you Inky.
  11. They are truly incredible. Thank you so much for sharing them here. I have never seen such beautiful work. How exciting. Do you you have more of this type of micro mosaic in your collection? I would l...
  12. Shades!!! Thank you! I had to get up to see them. And better still it was worth getting up for. ;o) It is 5 am and I don't do days with two sevens in them if I can help it. ;o) Gosh they are beautiful...
  13. You are most welcome. I hope you will enjoy your new piece.
  14. Three light pan fixture with original period shades circa 1920. Retains the turn key switches.
  15. It is wonderful. So Spring! Love the frog too. Sincerely, Lisa
  16. It was an ashtray. Made in the sixties perhaps. When everybody smoked it sat on the coffee table empty until company came. It is meant for whatever you want to do with it. ;o) It belongs to you now. ...
  17. Love the lines. What fun. It looks like it is going somewhere. ;o) Sincerely, Lisa
  18. I love that it was your Dad's. Only one thing nicer than having a two sided Coke poster and that is having one that belonged to your Dad. :O) Sincerely, Lisa
  19. So what will be the first thing you make to bake? It deserves pride of place. Well spotted, well done, enjoy it now. Sincerely, Lisa
  20. Sorry, I certainly can't help with attribution but I can add my Ooohs and Ahhhs. Gorgeous colours! I too love the shapes. Great collection. Thank you for showing them to us here. Sincerely, Lisa
  21. Thank you, I did go to Kralik just now but guess what? The MOP page has been taken down for a bit because they feel there might be a mistake. I can wait. Don't you just love that they are so vigilant?...
  22. Thank you Sean, at the speed of light, again, I see. ;o)
  23. Oops, I should have mentioned that the pontil is quite different on the larger one. Which is why I was so unsure. It appears to have been pressed with a different pattern to improve the scar. Is that ...
  24. Gorgeous! How exciting to see. Thank you for showing them to us here. Sincerely, Lisa
  25. I think this is a glove box. The implement is used to stretch the fingers of the gloves when necessary.
  26. That so does look like a mark on the bottom. I would spend ages looking at that no doubt eventually one could make something from it. ;o) The colour and shape are very appealing. There is something ab...
  27. Oh yes, that black paint. I would be happy to take it off for you. ;o) I'll bet it looks lovely lit at night. How often do you see the WAS Benson table lamp bases for sale? I would like one day to fin...
  28. Yes, that would be my feeling too. Chances are if it is, the shade was made by Phoenix. I will check and see I I can find the shape. Do you have the measurements handy? If not I can guestimate so don'...
  29. Lovely! We just don't see light fittings like this here. ''Scarce as Hen's teeth'' as my Dad used to say. The shade too is wonderful. Thank you again for sharing. Sincerely, Lisa
  30. Oh, Yum!!! They are lovely. The one on the left certainly does look English. I can't be sure but that pattern looks familiar. I think, it may be shown on the site you so kindly sent me yesterday. Mike...
  31. Dear Jewels, Thank you for your thoughts on the Opaline Brocade. I gather you didn't recognize the pattern on the third shade. The one with the 3 & 1/4 fitter. The last one I think is Phoenix ...
  32. I am glad that you are glowing. ;o) That pic is my William and he was a very happy boy. I miss him everyday. I have three dogs but William was one of those special "people". :)
  33. Thank you Rick. It is one of a pair. :O) I am really tickled to have found them and even more pleased that I bought them just because. They are frivolous in the sense that didn't need them in a pract...
  34. How wonderful! So glad you have added a piece that you really wanted that is always a special thing. Thank you for sharing it here. I had not noticed his work until you did and it is lovely. You have ...
  35. Thank you, I am glad that you enjoyed seeing it. Inky, Toronado, Sean, Rick, Walksoftly, Vetraio, argcollect and Sklo. Does it ring any bells for anyone? I am some what familiar with the Art Nouveau ...
  36. Treasure hunter, extraordinaire! ;o) Well done you! What fun. A great piece and a bargain to boot. Things like that show the harder you work the luckier you get. They also make up for all the times on...
  37. I am intrigued by the way you chose to display them. Unpredictable, and they ask for such, or so it seems to me now having seen them displayed like this. You are such a teacher. In the best possible s...
  38. This is delightful. Great design and the colours are full of life. Thank you again for sharing. Sincerely, Lisa
  39. What a wonderful family treasure. Thank you for sharing it here. Sincerely, Lisa
  40. Who ever did own it had Sunday's off apparently. ;o) Who would that exclude? Just a thought. Sincerely, Lisa
  41. Thank you to you both ladies. Steven and Williams is definitely on the table. I am so glad that you like them too. I am dare I say it..... tickled pink. ;o) I wish you both lived around the corner so...
  42. Dear Perfumer, Thank you. Berry Pontil it is then. Webb? Now that is really exciting news. Thank you for looking and thank you too for the information. Sincerely, Lisa
  43. I have just spent a lovely few hours on your site, and wanted to add my thanks to all those before me. It is a great work and as so many have said it is a great resource for us. Thank you for your tim...
  44. Hi, I just found a shade that appears to be a match for your shades. It was listed on site called Worthopedia and had been listed on ebay by a company here in Canada. Bernardis antiques in Toron...
  45. Do take this for what it is worth. But by what I can see of that fitter I don't think these were made in America. I think you were on the right track before you found the Durand note. We will keep loo...
  46. This one appears to have been made on someone's best day of that week. It is lovely.
  47. The chap with the bee on his head is funny too and I quite like the man with the monocle. They must make you smile.
  48. That is a beauty. I had heard a few years ago that Robert was leaving to start a new adventure and I was worried that we would not be seeing any new work. But when I saw your post, I looked him up aga...
  49. Wow! Very classy, Glassy. Thank you for sharing this here. Wonderful photos too.
  50. Thank you Inky. Do you have any ideas about attribution? I am still not even sure about what country never mind a maker. I was just struggling with a book on Mount Washington or a reference to them b...
