carmascot@hotmail.com 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 carmascot@hotmail.com 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. This IS beautiful !~
  2. Love this art glass globe, just don't put in hot water as I warn owners as they can get small cracks on the inside, all very noticeable.
  3. Very nice. They would have value to collectors as there are not many relating to the war era, love them. Phil.
  4. Not a mission style at all, though it has a country look to it. If it still had a label you could do more research, however, of the hundreds of furniture manufacturers that some provinces and states...
  5. The quality on some millefiori has been made poor with very few and smaller pieces esp. on the globes for lamps. They used to be excellent. These look more like art glass attempting to recreate the lo...
  6. If you sent the photos to me I could lighten them and correct color. They are a bit burned in appearance. I believe I may have seen the piece before but was not available, I love it. The bulb was on o...
  7. Unfortunately renaissance revival is linked to too many items, most not too similar. Also you have to realize that most furniture companies put their own twist or thought to a design. This design is e...
  8. Never have I ever seen or owned a kangaroo leather piece, fascinating !
  9. You need better pictures first before you ask opinions. There is no detail pictures of any of the standout decoration or feet, etc.
  10. Thanks to antiquerose for the nice comment and the love, you are always appreciated.
  11. Very good idea, I should have thought of that too.
  12. Would have loved to see your long red hair flying out that window, while you were doing your vehicle tricks like this short video !~ https://ca.video.search.yahoo.com/video/play;_ylt=A2KLqIgdLfpTv...
  13. I always wanted to get the Nishika 3D camera and unfortunately never did. Would have been helpful when I made postcards in NYC back in the day. If I remember right these were from 83 0r 84 but cannot ...
  14. Hope it is original, very nice find.
  15. A beautiful handmade gift from a very special girl, great talent !~
  16. Hi, you did a beautiful job. I see that some slats of wood on top are broken and it looks good as is. Can you buy slats to replace or do you have to have them specially made ?? Just a general question.
  17. It appears to be a Renaissance Revival chair.
  18. Thank you nutsabotas6 for the love.
  19. Thank you for the love and comment Kerry, always appreciated and also thank you Cormoran1925 for the love, you are kind.
  20. Thank you for the loves gargoylecollector, and shareurpassion.
  21. I saw one at a collectors sale a year or so ago and it went I believe for around 400 plus auction fees, great deal !~
  22. Also to prove that it is a Hirsch lamp the identical base was made to order on most of their lamps and is prominently shown in pictures of Hirsch lamps on my site. Some have markings on bottom do show...
  23. Thank you kindly for the loves ozmarty, Manikin, and Lisa-lighting !~
  24. Thank you antiquerose for the love, much appreciated.
  25. I'd probably stick with collecting these.
  26. Love the city hotel in particular. It seems more crowded in these days.
  27. I remember loving the large ones best with great mixed color. Loved playing with them more. Beautiful collection here.
  28. I remember seeing a lot of these leftons in the 80's. For a second I thought it was real.
  29. There used to be all sorts of repair shops for the old tvs and radios. Some of the new chinese guys in the phone book probably could repair. They were easy to find repair in the late 70-s.
  30. The fuselage would be easy to light also. Small chinese LED's would work great and some of them work on a battery the size of a dime.
  31. These are great items. What a find. I see he wrote a book also, "How to Carve a Woodfellow" by Mel McDaniel. I seen one of his on ebay also.
  32. I meant to say not to enter from handheld device like a phone.
  33. Should not be a problem with the photos if you enter them on your computer and not your desk advice, the moderators will not fix photos, I doubt. I can fix your photos if you send them to me before po...
  34. First time seeing it. A woman I knew well in Regina had a fantastic collection with some of the things the quints had when babies. She had a big bus retrofitted with some of the memorabilia. I also ...
  35. I just love the floor model, something you do not see for sale as much now. There seemed a lot for sale in the 70's at the auctions.
  36. Love the man of steel in the booth, super cool !~
  37. I have bought hundreds of old ashtrays over the years and remember this one well. Great to see all the parts also.
  38. Nice collection, great display !~
  39. Very cool !~
  40. Great graphics with lots of color !~
  41. The relief sculpture on the medals is very fine work done beautifully !~
  42. Lots of rust on it. You got that right. What size is the piece - about 5 in high ?
  43. I certainly agree with Gracay's comments. There are a lot of things we don't understand about CW except that it is run by ebays owners, basically, so that should bring some light to the confusion. Ca...
  44. From info I have seen, Miller did make similar lamps to yours. In 1900 Miller bought the brand name of 'Meteor' from the Meriden Brass Company, which had ceased trading and using his 1892 patent re-...
  45. Edward Miller & Company, Meriden, Connecticut U.S.A was listed as makers and owners of the Meteor brand. There is lots of info and sites on the web where you could contact some of the web sites owners...
  46. Hey, what happened to the very rare brush, the post is gone - ??
  47. Still deciding if I should buy my old one back, it brought back lots of memories of my friends back then. Looks like you have the orig outfit too and hopefully the dog tag that came with him.
  48. Really love that second photo phone, the look is fantastic !
  49. This one really is a mystery. Love how the art deco bird appears to be drinking water or possibly the bottles ale.
  50. I love how they are displayed, I myself have no brushes like this, but I can understand your craze for this mania. You have a beautiful collection, and together they look so important, cool finds !~
