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)

  1. I used to have a similar designed set which was by Norman Bel Geddes. This is based on that design but not by Bel Geddes. The original Bel Geddes was sturdier and was used for seating in police stati...
  2. Great photos. I remember when we went to town to sell our weekly cream cans, we had around 4 large ones and one smaller one.
  3. Thank you pops52 for the nice comment, very appreciated !~
  4. I know that in the 90's in particular there were a lot of companies making such pieces, even Bombay company I found were making some beautiful reproductions. I love the green crystal cut piece near th...
  5. Someone may have washed it in hot water. A lot of these pieces like paperweights also crack if immersed in hot water.
  6. Great piece, I used to have a larger one but it was so heavy I always worried it falling off the wall, hurting someone, very nice piece you lucked in on !
  7. They still make some beautiful pieces like this, however the price is rather astronomical.
  8. What a great story, she must have treasured the piece that you worked so hard for. Don't really think its Aurora Borealis coated, but hard to tell from the picture.
  9. Love the card, unusual for me to see a shield with a kangaroo there, another great card you have given us !~
  10. Wonderful trike.
  11. Ok. I did fix it anyway for practice, turned out quite nice.
  12. I love the hand, maybe I can do a small fix of the picture on the computer for you if you like, can take out the tears and spots, etc.
  13. Thanks mcheconi for stopping by, you always are appreciated.
  14. Meowmix, meowmas, I'm confused.
  15. Thank you for the loves walksoftly, mikelv85, CindB, and kyratango - very appreciated !~
  16. Its Phil, not what you wrote.
  17. Yes, Katherine is correct, made as a tv lamp, there are collectors books on tv lamps.
  18. I remember them using a lot of metal to diffuse lights in 82-84 period, this plastic gives the same soft light. I have some vintage lamps that use the same principal and it works beautifully ! Wonderf...
  19. Went to see an aunt so long ago, found out she made fabulous quilts, now I wish I had one of hers to treasure.
  20. Very nice, highly unusual !~
  21. Thank you mcheconi and SpunkysMom for the very nice compliments and the loves, you both are always so kind.
  22. Thanks for the loves Jewels, kyratango, Manikin and southcop, appreciate.
  23. Thank you very much for the loves valentino97, aghcollect, Jewels, and VioletOrange, you are appreciated.
  24. Love it, love the color and the magic happening in the photo !~)
  25. Thank you DrFluffy for the comment, so kind of you.
  26. Thats the kind of moth one hopes to find in their trunks and chests. Beautiful.
  27. Very nice.
  28. Thanks racer4four for the heads up.
  29. Thanks surfdub for the comment.
  30. Some very nice ones Rose, Merry Christmas to you !~
  31. That is one useful tea strainer !
  32. Great photo and great memory to have !
  33. Thank you Spunkys mom for the compliment and the wishes, love to you this season !
  34. Sometimes a hint of where you reside helps others in determining where a piece may be made, but with so many people doing the rhinestone thing during its day it can be hard.
  35. Wow, you did a fine job on the restoration. I use body filler too for a lot of my restoration jobs. Its so good to work with. Phil.
  36. I would probably take the light fittings out and just use as decorative ewers. They are made of spelter metal.
  37. Thank you nutsabotas6 for the nice compliment !~
  38. Thank you Elisabethan for the compliment !
  39. Thanks shareurpassion, for such a nice compliment.
  40. Its possible that its from the nouveau period, however it is hard to tell from photos. Possibly there is someone who handled the stripping of the original finish around you who would know more about ...
  41. Nice with that original box. Soon there won't be many items with boxes as todays generation have no room for storage of boxes. I was cleaning out my father and mothers things last couple of months and...
  42. Thank you walksoftly for the nice compliment.
  43. Reminds me of the heavily decorated Egyptian theme ones which were over the top in decoration. You did a beautiful job on the refinishing. Phil.
  44. Love the what appears to be inlaid Art Nouveau design in the back of the chair. Have seen others in images but not exact same one. A lot of rockers have that extra work that is not in sets of chairs. ...
  45. My sister does not seem to like brooches too much, so I find out. However recently picked up a stunner. You have great taste however, which really shows in some of these exciting pieces. Love the thi...
  46. Hi Spunkys Mom, the brown or amber one is one of my favourites also. You seem to have some tan colored marquise stones on the left which is a color that I am somewhat unfamiliar with. The constructio...
  47. The pic is a bit crude, but it kind of looks like a Russian samovar. Not sure if russian but similar enough for the photo presented. Phil.
  48. Thank you kyratango for the very nice compliment, I appreciate it !
  49. Yonezawa seems to have only made toys from what I see. I was buying items from Bombay Company in the 90's that made items like this. Some of the pieces had some remarkable casting of the metal and r...
