  1. Its a very nice piece and I really like it, but it was made to look old. There are *no* native American pieces with signatures or marks from the era you mentioned. In fact, it was the Fred Harvey comp...
  2. Thanks Ho2!
  3. Wow you got it Melanie! Can I ask how you figured it out?? Did you recognize it? or some database? Please, I'm really curious as to how you ID'd it
  4. Trust me I've seen far, far worse. I use flour personally to rub against signatures. You could try that. Now If I were an artist, I would want people to be able to read my signature and RECOGNIZE m...
  5. I have been asking that EXACT SAME QUESTION since I started collecting art and pottery years ago, what is the deal??? Why can't ANY ARTIST AT ALL sign their pieces so people can READ THEM?? Ughhh... S...
  6. Roycroftbooks - I couldn't find any Howard Hughes museums at all? There was one article about the Spruce Goose at an aviation museum
  7. In my experience, Christies and Southebys NEVER respond back to you unless you have something worth 5-6 figures
  8. What do you mean by HH museums??
  9. Yes you're right, good eye, he didn't have a dimple, and I noticed that as well. Could be that he asked the artist to add one so he looked manlier, or the artist took artistic license. They aren't pho...
  10. "rucklczglass, 12 hours ago Could be a self-portrait. Us CW women members also enjoy seeing -males- in artistic forms.... ;-)" Lol thanks Ruckl, you're absolutely right, I'm sure there is a female...
  11. His hair is even parted the same side Hughes parted his
  12. Actually, on the back is written "HH Despondent," and I'm seriously thinking this could be Howard Hughes, who was kind of a despondent guy to begin with. I've compared it to some photos of him aro...
  13. Robert H. Kennicott (1892-1983 Los Angeles, CA)
  14. Anyone good at making out signatures?
  15. Haha you're funny
  16. Lol you figured all that out before I got a chance to check my email! Doesn't it feel great when you solve a mystery like that, when you put a puzzle together in the antique world? Lately I've been ha...
  17. Hey davezquanw, take a look at this!
  18. Hey davezquanw, take a look at this!
  19. I didn't think about that. A crow on a lion's back.... He has something in his mouth but I can't tell what it is
  20. Thanks Mike, lets hope we're right. Gonna take it to my jade guy tomorrow and get his evaluation, but I can already pretty much tell its probably quite valuable
  21. Yeah there is one, its like the character for "dai" but with the top stroke cut off, basically looks like a "K. The bottom is dirty, kind of grey
  22. Hey Dave, I just posted an old white jade figurine, I think it could be valuable, could you take a look at it for me? I know you're the CW jade expert around here
  23. Thank you for the info Grendel. I will be sure to make use of it
  24. Well that was three years ago, I was still learning. Kerry is right, it's def a stone, but unfortunately it doesn't appear to be a very good one from the picture. I'd say take a better photo in better...
  25. Awesome! Thanks a lot V!
  26. No its got marks from all over the world if you look at the tabs on top, problem is that they are only the really obvious well-known artists. Already tried that site lol. There were very few records k...
  27. Thanks racer. Isn't it? I've never seen any Mexican pieces quite like it before. Thought it was some weird cologne bottle at first, being in the bathroom and all
  28. :D thanks mike!
  29. Nice job on Kiwipaul for finding the Cartier link. I did some Googling and I found that Cartier produced different versions of this distinct "tree pot" brooch design. Very well could be a Cartier piec...
  30. Korean. Hangul is easy to translate, Google a guide on how to read it. Its not old though if that's what you're asking
  31. Maybe tell us what it is made out of? I can't tell what I'm looking at
  32. Where are you getting "bronze" from exactly?... Do you know what bronze is? Did you try Googling the marks maybe? That's the first thing I would do
  33. Jesus that's awesome. Valuable piece you got there
  34. just a gold ring with lab-grown ruby
  35. very beautiful little pieces
  36. going to have to get a photo of those marks. take some better photos of it, I can't really tell what im looking at
  37. Very interesting Mike, you seem to have had about the same kind of reaction as I did, disbelief at the fact I was holding a piece of Roseville where the seller didn't know what it was! There seems ...
  38. Great piece Mike, I love Meiji porcelain
  39. Ah that's where I saw it, on the Roadshow. Knew I had seen it somewhere. Small miracle they stayed together all these years
  40. Thank you, I agree, sometimes I think it does look better than floating on a gradated background
  41. I've been saying the same thing too! If you want to invest in fine Japanese porcelain, now is the time to do it. I routinely see technically beautiful, highly artistic Satsuma go for around a hundred ...
  42. With regards to the ~ Somewhat Nice. ~ Just Awesome.. ~ A keeper... ~ Highly Collectible.... Chinese exported a lot of jewelry to the rest of the world and there is a lot floating around....
  43. Oooo how cool is that
  44. Don't you hate when something is signed like this? I never understood why they don't just write their name so everyone will know... I can't make out what they were trying to convey with this mark. Can...
  45. Great piece. Things made in Italy during this era were of higher artistic quality. There were a lot of very famous designers working there
  46. ooo spectacular. id love to find that
  47. What area do you live in Sean?
  48. It translates as "wise warrior" but I don't know what that would mean for a pottery mark. Hope you find this interesting
  49. Whoops, links don't recognize the character. First is: Second is:
  50. The top one is: It means bright, intelligent, wise The second one is: Which means arms or armaments in Chinese, but also means Ai...
