  1. Wow. Thanks for all of the great info. I will try the Scrubbing Bubbles tip. I do realize that bakelite is plastic but so many times I do see people calling something bakelite when it is another form ...
  2. Marios, is this glaze a CELADON? I've seen celadon glazes in a multitude of green shades but never in blue. Is this color and style specific to a certain region of China and does it have a specific na...
  3. Greetings and thank you so much. I happen to have a Russian keyboard with characters on my computer and it is indeed Cyryllic. Unfortunately the characters wouldn't type on this page so I am still le...
  4. Identified!!! Art.Pottery commented on one of the other unmarked pieces I put on here and suggested Ralph or Lorene Spencer - and that indeed is what this bowl is. Many thanks Art.Pottery
  5. I'm not sure about this particular piece, but I believe that you identified the other piece I have displayed on here. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The glaze and everything is almost identical, but...
  6. Thank you Sean68 for the nice compliment and - WOW - a big thank you to TallCakes! I really appreciate the information and the speed.
  7. Thank you so much for the information on my vase. I did just now in fact, look at it with a jeweler's loupe and there are indeed hair line 'cracks' along each dark line. And the identification as Chin...
  8. I finally found out what these mysterious little figures are. These are replicas of black pottery tomb figures found, along with other treasures, in the tombs of the AGE OF CIVIL WARS period, 403-429 ...
  9. I just heard back from the Knabstrup specialist. You were correct vetraio50 that it was made by one of the Hungarian artists - This lamp base was made by Lajos Mathe and is dated between 1946-1948. Ag...
  10. Wow!! Thank you so much. Lots of great information and wonderful photos on the websites. I can't thank you enough for your help with solving the mystery of my little lamp base. I'm going to have it co...
  11. How would I know if this is the older Duncan Miller version or the later Tiffin? Did they both do it in the light blue glass? Thanks
  12. Thank you so much for your response. And indeed it is Duncan & Miller
  13. Thank you. I really love them too!!
  14. Thank you for your response. I just found a photo of an almost identical piece at www.pijpenkabinet.nl/PijpenkabinetP-E%20opium.html which is the website of the Dutch Museum of pipe smoking and collec...
  15. Thank you so much for your input, and though I am absolutely not knowledgeable about anything military, I believe that you are right on the money. I too, spent some time trying to identify the insigni...
  16. Turns out it is a mustard ladle.
  17. I checked out Toddy Ladles and claret ladles and they have longer handles (this is only 4 1/4" long) and have an elongated bowl for pouring. Perhaps a small sauce ladle?
  18. Thank you so much. This information is very helpful and you certainly solved the mystery for me.
  19. I suppose it could be. I never even thought of that. I picked it up at a yard sale and immediately thought Indian or Mexican. Any suggestions as to where I might find more info. Now I am really intrig...
  20. Thank you so much. I would never have guessed that as its purpose. Any idea how old it is?
  21. I also heard back from a couple of places who confirmed that it isn't Redwing. I keep hoping someone may recognize the shape or the initials DW on the bottom. I'm guessing it is probably teens or late...
  22. Thank you for your reply. Well, it definitely isn't Jackson Pollock. I heard back from a couple of galleries which confirmed that. I thought it looked Arts andCrafts myself, but both seem to think tha...
  23. No, I haven't learned anything more. Maybe Schweitzer Silver Corp. also made silver plate, because the mark is identical as the one in the book of American Silver Marks. Does your's say sterling on in?
  24. Thank you so much. I appreciate the information.
  25. See more
