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.

  22. Tube amp is right about the naked man or boy as David. The first one is too sketchy to be recognizable. The pictures need to be done on computer as posting from phone is not a good idea. Should redo ...
  23. Great pipe, wish I had it, very beautiful, and no I have never seen it before. Reminds me of all the Indians that were done as car mascots from the 1920's when they became very popular with artists. ...
  24. An excellent photo retouch artist did a beautiful job on the coloring. Too bad, the family seems to have lost a link each time a photo is lost. Phil.
  25. Beautiful lamp !~Phil.
  26. Reminds me of the song Turn The Beat Around
  27. likely mass produced in China as it says and hand painted. Very nice work on the enameling.
  28. Love the verandah photo, there are just too many, even one is too many, of these unwanted, unloved family photos thrown out. It is just sad what becomes of ones heritage when families die out !~
  29. Thank you very much for the loves rniederman, upstatenycollector, mikelv85, aghcollect !~
  30. Apparently a lot of his clowns were based on Red Skeleton images, Red performed many times and drew many tears on Ed Sullivan and The Red Skeleton show, both loved and celebrated. This looks like one ...
  31. It is more Kitsch than deco, but it is adorable.
  32. This is great detail work. I see a lot of silver where the detail is poor. Indian or Siam, beautiful.
  33. Was based on a Savonarola chair. The feet on yours have been altered by the maker and thus producing the makers version of this piece where characteristics were changed. The feet and chair usually h...
  34. Keep them coming Leah !
  35. Thank you David for the comment and the love, right back at you !~
  36. Thank you kindly for the loves smiata, toracat, kyratango, Manikin, mcheconi , all loved and appreciated back.
  37. Would have recognized the beautiful stand anywhere, this is the kind of glass where you do not believe the drawings until you see the vase itself, its simply amazing !~
  38. You are good at finding, ar. Yes this is one of them. I saw another one also on another post also, but not on CW. I did remember that the ashtray was underneath of the coffee table. I thought there w...
  39. No there is no info on furniture makers online. Most went out of business long before anything was on line except the washing. Brandt mostly refers to the big forge worker who worked out of paris. H...
  40. No -- there was one on CW, but now cannot find it so it may have been removed. Have seen 2 of them so far, I think both had an ashtray in it which specifically fit the heart shaped ashtrays. It was a ...
  41. Have you seen the table for these??
  42. Used to sell them for about 20 each. Fairly common, at one time they held candy. From the 30's to 40's.
  43. I have seen the name before while searching statues. Will keep my eyes peeled and check my books, and let you know if I find anything. Phil.
  44. The plate shape seems appropriate and the graphics work well in that circle, just love it, so well done !~
  45. When you buy pieces like this -- unless you are sure its made of metal it is not original. Also beware of webbed hands and feet. The originals always had very clearly delineated fingers and toes, not ...
  46. I have more than several metal Auguste Moreau pieces, none are dated 1838, nor should they be. He was not exhibiting pieces in the salons until 1861 up to 1910.
  47. It is totally made of resin, sorry to have to tell you. This is not old. August Moreau pieces were the first to be cast in Resin, pretty much.
  48. Beautiful glass find, love it !~
  49. Wow, cannot believe I missed this, what striking vases, they seem to be in the stages of Art Deco design also, beautiful !~
  50. I might have missed a couple cards, these may have a message to them and when you find that out you will start to convulse much like icollect has !!~
