Personal Website: phildavidmorris.aminus3.c… Please just call me Phil. The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. I used to sell books and still Please just call me Phil. The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. I used to sell books and still have many that remain unsold but hate to get rid of them because they hold precious secrets of antique collectibles. I Like collecting aeroplane or airplane ashtrays and similar items. Now it seems I am fascinated by the world of hood ornaments, making life seem to have that new excitement, I cannot describe how happy that makes me. But I will. It makes me feel like I did when I had that first incredible place and every discovery is a FIRST, I love that place and miss it dearly when I had the nicest compliment that I ever got which was " Your home is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. "!! Have heard that compliment before and after but from one person all the time. Even my antique couch was in extra fine condition. I was lucky to have one of the most fun auctions of all time. I would go often with my friend Eddy, we were the youngest there and prices were cheap and I could go Tues, Thurs, Sat, all without a problem. Seen the most amazing things there. Once I passed up an old wurlitzer style machine with a screen that played old videos, the people loved it even though it went for only 600 dollars. There in the front row were lookalikes for Hitchcock to Hitler. Have always been a collector and somehow it seems to get stronger, reminds me of all the good times. I sometimes like to put too many pictures of my things on facebook, but you know what - they seem close to me and will always be in my heart, so somehow it seems justified and right to hold to your heart what you hold dear !!~ I really miss some of the magnificent things and everything that I ever sold. 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 usually burned to toast in the space of a minute or inevitably through the passage of time !~Phil.

  1. Its hard to tell from pics, the detailing seems rather poor, I would say possibly the 1940's to 50's.
  2. Mixture of styles. Picture is far too small and poor to give opinion.
  3. I have my reply on collections left column, on another chair like this. We have had several the last couple months. Phil.
  4. There is a hardcover book on Ansonia Clocks, very good and tells all the models and dates. Your library may have an older copy.
  5. Very beautiful. This is a good example as he also mastered pâte sur pâte, or literally translated: paste on paste. This would be done with many layers, exquisite.
  6. Its about a 200 dollar vase, to push it up to the next level, the detail would have to be better than this. Phil.
  7. They had one of these featured on the tv show Rick's Restoration within a year ago. You probably can watch old episodes on line to find out value and repair. Phil.
  8. Very nice collection you have. Phil.
  9. Its called a Heraldic Lion, very nice collectible, sometimes also one of the pair was a Unicorn.
  10. This is an excellent example, complete with cig pack arm with date. I have a couple of these also in my collection of trench art. You have a beautiful vintage piece here, love it.
  11. Well said SM, I agree totally. I love the things of the past, we are allowed to let our minds roam to old and favourite times, moments, and things of the past.
  12. Love what you buy which I could not as I would not know what to look for - really nice.
  13. Either a buffet or dresser, not a table. Hard to tell not seeing in person.
  14. I would definitely say 1940's, possibly 1930's -- definitely nothing to do with Federal period which was around the Regency period. Legs all wrong too. Looks so much like what you saw in the old catal...
  15. Looks more like 1940's, however it is so hard to date a table without seeing it. We had one like it with the legs in the 50's. It is very nice design so you should do well. Also they did a lot of inla...
  16. No, I had not heard of that, that is rather shocking and too close for comfort for you and your family. I since read the news. Good that you were not at the walmart store when that happened. Shockin...
  17. All I know is Made in Hong Kong is Claudja Barry's fourth album, released in 1981. Made in Hong Kong, and such is life in Saskatoon... I like it when she keeps saying made in hong kong. Claudja grew ...
  18. The room certainly looks very calm and cool with these additions, great find!~
  19. I like the subject matter with the watermelon seller, unfortunately I am no art critic so cannot verify if it is, I really wish you luck. Phil.
  20. Nice fantasy work and one of the best things are the eyes look kind and loving. Great find !~Phil.
  21. Thank you for the loves Manikin, and the comment !~
  22. Looks to be fired so not chalkware ?
  23. Sometimes they are called music tables or music stands even. Phil.
  24. No, seen some earlier last week very similar but look at too many posts and did not keep track of where I found it. Will save this in case I find again. Phil
  25. Looks like the advertising from the early 1920's, one thing about them is the great sense of humour I have seen in their other advertising of one poster I saw for Bonomelli, this piece of yours is kil...
  26. The carver of the back of the chair had a great sense of humour, so nice to see that carving. Its in an English Renaissance style, but yet the carver put his own sense of style on the carving. What a ...
  27. Looks like its perfect for a picnic, great design also, love that long wood handle, for some reason looks almost believable for a western movie !~
  28. It looks rather 70's, but with that the search may end. There is not much that really stands out here for style. The wood makes me think it is late 70's. Phil.
  29. I love the first one especially.
  30. Cannot seem to find anything at all wrong here, just love it, and I know there are tv lamp books now, but its one of the nicest I have seen looking on line, could not find one just like it !~Phil
  31. Cutting board with a drip tray no less, neat !
  32. Here is what was written on ebay: " Art Deco style vase marked on bottom Sirdar No2. Sirdar is a sewing company and I can't find any reference to it making pottery. Belonged to an old lady who was a...
  33. Saw this on ebay seems identical sold in England, did you buy it from them?
  34. Thanks kindly for the loves given tom61375, Moonstonelover21, bratjdd, fledermaus, Radegunder, austrohungaro
  35. Sometimes it really helps to do some history and provide clues What Country, State/Province you may live in. Where you found it also helps so you give the first clues ??
  36. That is really sad. History hardly survives a few decades of our timeline if we are real lucky. However it is still a treasure that probably very few exist these days.
  37. At a time when great employees were considered and valued which has been much lost in this world, a great gift for that employee at a forgotten time. I see that you may have got this from that site in...
  38. Never put leviton on your posting of the lamp. Leviton has to do with the bulb works which are in all lamps...
  39. There are tons of these around all go for nominal low fees and very few people want one.
  40. There have been similar ones posted on this site within months. All with the Irish carving of the face which is like early 20th century Irish Chippendale carving which they did not do chairs like this...
  41. Not quite the pizazz that sherman had.
  42. Thank you for the loves blunderbuss2, Trey, Virginia.vintage, rocker-sd, smiata
  43. Now this is interesting.
  44. Great pics of a future collector he looks like.
  45. Beautiful buy.
  46. very good buy.
  47. The painting only sold for about 2400 american with auction fees, pretty cheap, what an excellent buy.
  48. This first photo seems to be taken at the art gallery where they showed the picture originally. I had also seen the auction catalogs. Van Rensselaer Children: Seen at Northeast Auction website, Ports...
  49. Always a pleasure Mani, you can ask anytime.
  50. Thank you for the loves, mcheconi, czechman, pops52
