I really like to find signed items such as paintings, Brooches, glass/ceramic items that I can look up the history and learn from what I find. My biggest interest are vintage buttons. I teach a class now and again if I find a captive audience. I am retired military..Air Force. (Read more)

  8. Thank You LOUMANAL...Great advice/info.
  9. What would be the correct name for this item so I can do research. It does not seem to help when I look under Spelter...or Tall Spelter...or Victorian statue...etc... Thank you for any help...
  10. Thank You...you have been so helpful.
  11. I would agree that it is Spelter at the base and on the ornate parts. The statue itself is cold and very heavy and unlike the rest of the item. Not sure if it is brass or bronze or another heavy metal...
  12. Thank You Stillwater for your comments and aldionne also... The vase is so perfectly beautiful. The glaze is unmarked and beautiful to feel the smoothness. Everytime I look at this vase it seems I se...
  13. Thanks so much Anna; The back looks well made but all is covered. Looks like gold covering on the back of all stones. Not sure of the metal quality. I will keep on looking as you suggested and maybe...

  21. Thank You Bellin68, scandinavian_pieces and stefdesign for loving this ceramic figureine like I do...
  22. Thank you vanskyock24
  23. My husband tested with a strong magnet and I see now that the magnet only sticks where there are screws...not to the lamp metal..since it is very heavy..would this be brass?
  24. Thank you rocker-sd. You are so very helpful. I will just leave it alone and not polish it. I bought it because I love rocks/Gemstones...which I also collect.
  25. Thank you so much rocker-sd. The light socket says Leviton...This is such a heavy lamp..I would say Cast iron also. It is funny about the magnet now that I try that...it does not stick to all parts......
  26. Thanks so very very much Jim..I am going to print what you said and tape it to the bottom of my pig. Wonderful that you can translate and help others understand what they have...Liz.
  27. Thanks everyone for loving this lamp as I do. Does anyone know how old this lamp may be?
  28. Thank You TallCakes...is there an apx. age/ year for this or can this be still made today?
  29. Thank You so much...do you think this is slag glass?
