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)

  8. 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...
  9. Wow, what a fantastic gift, truly beautiful !~Phil.
  10. This is quite amazing being so thinly carved, beautiful !~
  11. Its beautiful, love the bracelet especially.
  12. Saw this about a month ago on t.v., loved it, although I may have seen it when I was younger.
  13. Love this, beautiful !~Phil.
  14. A floor ashtray, how unique, I love collecting trench art, never have seen something ever quite like this. Beautiful. _Phil.
  15. Also it sometimes has a plaque which reads 'by D.H. Chiparus.'
  16. What are the dimensions on the marble. Looks larger than normal size which is great ?
  17. Love it with the blue jean jacket, beautiful !~
  18. Super cool, man !~
  19. Thank you for the loves katherinescollections, Hedgewalker, Manikin, shareurpassion, Radegunder, musikchoo, Virginia.vintage, SEAN68.
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
  22. Simply called a rosette in furniture terms. Was a very popular item in furniture design. Phil.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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 ...
  26. 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...
  27. 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 !~
  28. Thank you for the loves Moonhill, petey, mcheconi, lampaddict, artdecogirl, kerry10456
  29. Thank you for the loves GlueChip, & upstatenycollector, appreciated !~
  30. I love that pose for the cutie, love the first pic also.
  31. Love the coffee table, the height of chic at one time, still able to draw viewers in !~
  32. look under lamp for any identifying marks, are there any ??
  33. 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 ...
  34. wow that is a lot of weight !
  35. A high back style around the early 1890's I believe.
  36. Very appealing.
  37. Unfortunate, but there is extremely little on sculptors of this beautiful collectible. You just have to have a signature. Beauty.
  38. This is beautiful. I have never seen this sculpture before and I really love it. The patina is very nice also. He was born in Munster on May 3, 1873, He studied at Dusseldorf Academy and was a pupil o...
  39. Can really learn a lot from this one !~
  40. I have always studied I guess you could call it, these lamps. Never seen this one before.
  41. Thanks Zowie for the compliment, here is the video, thanks to Mani. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isq-w9y_yR0
  42. Esther Anna Hunt (American, 1875–1951) http://www.artnet.com/artists/esther-anna-hunt/past-auction-results/3

  45. Sorry I guess that one sold for 150.00
  46. Here is one going up: Phil. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/5527009
  47. The drawings remind me of the Archie comics, but of course more polished !~
  48. You look so proud, and you ought to be !~
  49. The back is particularly fine work, cracker of a find !~
  50. Beautiful trench art, a lot of these great items were even sold in fine jewellery shops during the war years. You should be very proud of your father.
