Please just call me Phil. The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. . . Have always been a collector and somehow it seemsPlease just call me Phil. The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. . . Have always been a collector and somehow it seems to get stronger, reminds me of all the fun times I had. When quite young I seemed to try everything. Strarted out on photo shoots as a model and wanted to be the one taking the photos and soon bought my very first fine camera. Then I became a collector of antiques and read a lot of books on what I loved. Soon enough I was selling books and had several apartments in the cities where my main sales would be about 4-5 times in every season of the year. I find it so hard to sell anything. As times get more expensive, needing room and needing to help my sister makes me sell things now which I only intended to do a little of before. I have learned that the most important thing that you own is what seems to get the most attention at one particular moment... And sometimes that can be your latest find or the new piece you got in the mail, or a book about your collecting field. The best advice one can heed for any type of collecting is go with your gut feel as everyone else's opinion is gone in the space of a minute or inevitably through the passage of time !~Phil. carmascot@hotmail.com (Read more)

  1. The carnival glass was very popular in the 80's but sort of dropped out these last few decades.
  2. These look great with a lighted base underneath. If you wash with hot water, paperweights may show cracks on the inside. I have one similar with dark blue inside, the lavender is equally as nice.
  3. Thank you for the condolences Bob.
  4. And many thanks Nathan !~
  5. Thanks again David, Nadia, Trey, Cind, SpunkysMom, Maggie, antiquerose, appreciate your caring.
  6. Everything stuns some people as you can see !~LOL
  7. I have had a number of these 70's lamps, the first one, never seen one like yours but there are a lot of images of these type on google, never found one with a maker label, unfortunately. They usually...
  8. Thank you Ernie and all of you who left such nice comments. So appreciative of all of you beautiful people.
  9. Love the first 3 photos, the 4th one is over the top scary !~ Love the piece you have.
  10. Did you read what you wrote - very funny.
  11. Very similar to tables still being made/ also the low coffee table was not invented until the 1920's - similar table - Phil http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/?pid=193776
  12. Similar to one that was on CW just a week or two ago. Is this one coffee table size or how high ?? What state did you get it ??
  13. The photos are much too small, did you look underneath ??
  14. Look what this guy says about his grandma http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/150849-wodden-brown-buffet?in=all
  15. I see that the other size is about half of yours, you are very lucky indeed to have such a beautiful showstopper !~
  16. Thanks antiquerose, my dad lives here in Saskatoon. Thanks for all the nice comments Trey, walksoftly, Radegunder, CindB, and ron1939, most appreciate you all.
  17. Terrible end for such a talented man, gorgeous piece.
  18. Thank you fledermaus, antiquerose and trey for your wishes, I really appreciate.

  23. I have seen these before, but yours is definitely one of the best and nicer ones I have ever seen. Philxoxo
  24. Sending more love your way today !~Phil.
  25. I love chintz to Loulou, the book is The Charlton Standard Catalogue of Chintz. By Susan Scott. My friend I used to do the antique shows with was credited and thanked in this Canadian book. Met the au...
  26. Wow, what a fantastic gift, truly beautiful !~Phil.
  27. This is quite amazing being so thinly carved, beautiful !~
  28. Its beautiful, love the bracelet especially.
  29. Saw this about a month ago on t.v., loved it, although I may have seen it when I was younger.
  30. Love this, beautiful !~Phil.
  31. A floor ashtray, how unique, I love collecting trench art, never have seen something ever quite like this. Beautiful. _Phil.
  32. Also it sometimes has a plaque which reads 'by D.H. Chiparus.'
  33. What are the dimensions on the marble. Looks larger than normal size which is great ?
  34. Love it with the blue jean jacket, beautiful !~
  35. Super cool, man !~
  36. Thank you for the loves katherinescollections, Hedgewalker, Manikin, shareurpassion, Radegunder, musikchoo, Virginia.vintage, SEAN68.
  37. Looks to be placed there carefully and kind of looks like a soapstone carving, but impossible to tell without seeing it. It very well may be resin, as I have seen these rosettes in resin.
  38. Its called the parrot girl, it is a reproduction statue supposedly made of bronze. Not sure on that one. This looks like one of the first castings that came out in the mid 80's. They used some very od...
  39. Simply called a rosette in furniture terms. Was a very popular item in furniture design. Phil.
  40. It may be alabaster but without better pics or being able to see the picture I would not guess. Would not rule out alabaster yet, though. The caryatid is a correct term. Phil.
  41. Reminds me of the fake fireplaces the soviets made in around 1955 or so. The panels opened up to a lit small bar. Very deco they were. Would love to see this lit also.
  42. The pattern number is 775 for the gold trim and 1612 for the green trim. The pattern was introduced in 1932. One of the few patterns advertised in 1933 in philadel store. Very popular and production ...
  43. Wonderful street light lamps which are still being made, I love your old ones - hope you looked under the lamp for any identifying marks. That sometimes is all one will ever find out. These are real t...
  44. Beautiful design elements, especially like the white one. The book on Waylande Gregory was a fascinating read, he was probably one of the best deco designers in America !~
  45. Thank you for the loves Moonhill, petey, mcheconi, lampaddict, artdecogirl, kerry10456
  46. Thank you for the loves GlueChip, & upstatenycollector, appreciated !~
  47. I love that pose for the cutie, love the first pic also.
  48. Love the coffee table, the height of chic at one time, still able to draw viewers in !~
  49. look under lamp for any identifying marks, are there any ??
  50. There was one of these, slightly different parts used but had the alabaster budgies. I have had some of the parts used that were made by this lamp company and I have used the base of this lamp design ...
