Please just call me Phil. The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. I Like collecting aeroplane or airplane ashtrayPlease just call me Phil. The above name is my facebook name, because of all the people with the same name. 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 descibe 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 !! 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 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.

  18. So sorry to say that I could not find her in my Encyclopedias. There are many out there that were missed and it was done by one author. It may be a bronze version though that alone would make it mor...
  19. Thank you Austrohungaro and VioletOrange for the love. Austro I have shown the other lamps that are similar in my other posts. Phil.
  20. Thank you mcheconi and antiquerose for the very nice comments.

  27. Looks more like a lobster. Love it.
  28. Thank you vetraio50 and lundy for the loves, very appreciated !~
  29. I love her steadfast gaze at the mannequin that she created.
  30. Its in the style of older but the elements are too modern. It probably started out new in the 30's or 1940's. Its sort of in the style of Tub Chairs which came out in the 1920's. Its a mish mash of ...
  31. Thank you Mani for the love also, you are always appreciated !~
  32. Thanks Mani, luckily I pay a lot to fix my photos properly and that to me is one good investment. Seems that I have bought a lot of statues lately, more for the arsenal !~
  33. A girl with Mandolin. I have not seen this one before but will check my sculptors encyclopedias for the figure. It may be made of spelter or bronze but hard to tell from the photos. Probably very l...
  34. Very large and wonderful in their home.
  35. I have seen the deer in a recent sale I noticed on the computer. It is similar to statues and clocks by Menneville, who usually worked in spelter such as your piece. Yours seems to be missing an elem...
  36. If you google pictures of "brass kettle stand" you will see a lot of other nice designs also.
  37. Anything to bring this fantastic woman's legacy to light, she always is a joy on the road ahead !~
  38. I would think English or possibly Italian, the carving definitely does not look anything but real, no reproduction there. Just love this piece.
  39. A lot of these were made and I have seen many and I love every one I see !! Fireplace screens are made of brass every day, so I imagine the fireplace is the way to go, or a lot of people these days st...
  40. More masterpieces of this woman's incredible legacy and cannot wait for the definitive book on her work. Hopefully you will find a stash in the upcoming future that will light your heart !~

  44. Very nice collection in the 3rd pic, some beauties there.
  45. The one I had was a nice one but standard and no item of beauty. The accordion is at my fathers and has been there since he moved. He may be dying soon so I will have it in due short time. Len Gadic...
  46. Great find. Penato's music is beautiful and your accordion is in pretty fine condition and a beauty. I learned a few songs when I was about 12 from my cousin who was the second best for miles to come....
  47. You are so lucky to have what information that you have, most chair's labels are long gone with no ability to trace what company made it. It seems most info on any of the multitude of furniture maker...
