Recent finds include Melmac air plane ware, a Melamine dinner set, Fire-King, Milk-glass, Pyrex, and some cut glass. I also like pottery, pretty china, and tea cups... I enjoy thrifting; finding items, and researching them to find out what I have found! (Read more)

  1. Thanks, Chinablue. Well, you said it better than I could! ;) I have to say I'm enjoying and learning a lot through these pieces!
  2. I noticed the garland looks a little different from other pieces too, it's interesting though. I took a stroll through ebay and couldn't find anything useful. I'm not as good with history as I probabl...
  3. Beautiful! It looks like Schumann, but the pattern is a little different. Have you visited this site, it helped me... http://www.efineantiques.com/webpages/schumann2.htm
  4. Very nice! I love looking at old pictures/paintings of dogs. It's interesting to see how the breeds evolved and ones that no longer exist.
  5. Pretty! I have a smilar piece (in a blueish- greenish color with some white on the bottom)... and someone told me mine might be Italian glass.
  6. Thank you! Yes, I do... honestly I'm so new to collecting that this was the first reticulated piece I come across... and quickly fell in love with it!
  7. Oh sorry for the confusion, I have the sneakers, which I love. I don't "have" the bags... I just "saw" a few bags on ebay with the same pattern. I think I just did a general search for floral pattern ...
  8. Hey, that's great!! I was going to tell you I also saw a few handbags varying sizes on ebay with the same pattern, all different styles. I believe "Madison" stands for something else bc Coach has all ...
  9. My aunt had a table just like this, but it was sold at her estate sale a few years ago. :( I called my cousin for more information on it. Apparently my aunt's sister had travelled and brought it back ...
  10. Okay, finally an area I can offer some assistance with! ;) This is not vintage Coach. It is discontinued though. I recognize the pattern because I bought the sneakers at the Coach outlet a couple of y...
  11. SpunkysMom- No problem. Thank you, and you have a cute cat nestled in that basket!! It's funny because I considered picking "maggie's mom" as my screen name. ;)
  12. austrohungaro- Thanks for sharing! I loved your blue glass, beautiful. vetraio50- I came across that same website the other day! Awful! I think the story may end there, unfortunately, but I'm going t...
  13. The site I posted doesn't seem to have a lot of info on it either, but it's a little something.
  14. I found that mark on this website. I use it to research marks... it's about 1/2 way down the page. http://www.efineantiques.com/webpages/fine_porcelains.htm
  15. Thank you! I think they are from that time frame.
  16. Love your items!! Kosta Boda made a serving bowl/dish "similar" to the colored votives (yours is in purple), you can keep an eye out and make a set. Also, if you like the Orrefors on ebay (from the li...
  17. THanks!
  18. Thank you!
  19. I noticed you have quite a beautiful collection of pieces that glow!
  20. I saw a bumper sticker with a paw print on it not too long ago saying, Who "Rescued" Who? I thankful everyday that we found her!! I'm sure it's mutual, she's a good pup. :) I'm going to try that! ...
  21. Thank you!!
  22. Thank you, I'm new to this site and collecting in general. I'm so happy to have found a place where I can share my "finds" and learn more about them! That link already answered a few questions I had-...
  23. Thank you miKKoChristmas11 and Hedgewalker! Hedgewalker-Thank you!! My boyfriend found Maggie-Dog on the side of the road clinging to life, while in Texas temporarily. So, as it turns out our "ch...
  24. Chadakoin: Okay, now I'm getting it. ;) I was confused because while searching the internet I came across a photo of the plates with the same back stamp, but the owners description said "Monterey" by...
  25. Thanks Chadakoin! Glad you enjoy them. I'm going to keep my eye out for additional pieces to add to it. How would I know if my plates were manufactured by Metlox or if they were made prior to that by ...
  26. stefdesign- Thanks, I fell for the colors too! It's not plastic, but I had to tap on it a few times. It does have a "different" feel to it. It seems like some kind of "china" I'm not sure if it's ston...
  27. It's beautiful. This site helped me research my 1945-49 German plate. They have a collection of china and back stamps from all over. http://www.efineantiques.com/webpages/schumann2.htm
  28. I'm not sure, but they are beautiful!
  29. I tend to come across these bowls in thrift stores and yard sales. I walked by one once before, and regretted not picking it up. So, when I recently came across two white ones (milk glass-looking) I g...
  30. Thank you, that's a great idea. Pink would be beautiful!
