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)

  11. What a great deal you got, love it !~Phil
  12. There was a store downtown I think the Urban Barn which sold similar ones in the nineties. I opted for the real looking 3 foot branches which had normal grape size and dark color. They look real but w...
  13. Here is an ad for finials that shows another sputnik lamp in the additional photo that is more similar to yours, but yours are far nicer: Phil. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/PAIR-OF-COMET-STYLE-ATOMIC-LAM...
  14. Ok, now I looked at images and found several lamps also with sputnik finials, and also one with some on the middle, but have not seen this exact lamp. Also saw more than several sputnik finials on eba...
  15. Thank you pops, I was thinking that you'd like to see more, I appreciate ! Thank you Inky and Sean for the compliments.
  16. I have never seen sputnik finials before, these are gems !~Phil.
  17. Gotta love the Jetsons era shade, love it.
  18. There is one up for auction tomorrow, similar make, but a nurse instead. This one is certainly similar to the one I posted, love the Jantzen swimsuit logo. The model certainly knows its her time to sh...
  19. Remind me of a recent post, I love these, even the shades are wonderful.
  20. Thanks CindB for the beautiful comment, most appreciated.
  21. Fascinating !~
  22. They were popular novelty cups in several different decades.
  23. Nice to have the date of 1967 on them. Very period. The shades at this time in lamp making were big and rather ugly but these would look beautiful with a smaller newer shade.
  24. Gorgeous, do the glass bases light up ?? If it was made in the late 70's to early 80's the bases would have lit up. At that time they put a metal grid surrounding the bulb, which lit it beautifully.
  25. Very gorgeous, I am envious of these beauties which are rare. Phil.
  26. Superb Zowie, beautifully colored also.
  27. Are the chickens knife rests, they almost look like them from the pic? Phil.
  28. Its trying to take some style from Classicism but mixed styles which actually work together beautifully, the legs are chippendale. Beautiful. Without a label it would be impossible to tell which furni...
  29. Looks early 20's beautiful !~Phil
  30. Beautiful !~Phil.
  31. I love this bird shaped fragrance bottle. Beautiful. ~Phil
  32. He looks pretty much exactly like your link.
  33. They look beautifully made !~Phil
  34. Its gorgeous, I am sorry that your wife is blind.
  35. Would have to post picture of bottom of the base to tell anything.
  36. These are real treasures, look like fine glass and from what I can see of the bases, they look french, though that is guessing from a picture that shows very little.
  37. Great picture mani, so many of us wish something could be done about all the disappearing homesteads in the country.
  38. These juicers were made in many materials up to the 60's or early 70's but pretty much disappeared which is sad.
  39. Seems so few of this type with the beads were signed, which is common with most of the jewellery makers.
  40. Looks like a great fit to your collection !
  41. The shutter release cord is new. Rolleiflex cameras were one of the best ones out there. They are not really all that rare, but the good ones can go for thousands. I usually get catalogs from Europe f...
  42. Great photo Zowie, nice to meet your family. Phil.
  43. Thank You shareurpassion for the funny compliment !)
  44. I seen that there is an auction coming up with some nice magazines and they look in great shape, and other MM: Simon Parr's Auctions 2/2/15 Phil
  45. I had one of these, but no key unfortunately, I gave it to the owner of the car detailing shop, across from shoppers, along with my other locks for his collection since he had some in his collection, ...
  46. Thank you pops for the compliment. I have now moved them into showcases about 10" X 14" or so. I have 3 showcases + now, so it is growing beyond control already !~
  47. Here is the link Rose, this is the kind of thing that metal models airline collectors would want to buy: Aviation and Airline Memorabilia/ Phil http://www.canadiandesignresource.ca/jewellery/paper-we...
  48. I remember the old Army and Navy store used to have a table and more of these in their store.
  49. Beautiful piece for a collection, great find !~Phil.
  50. A beautiful memory. A lot of these are considered art deco now also. It looks like he really knew what he was doing, a real craftsman, a wonderful keepsake in such good condition also !~
