  1. Hi Anne, I hope you're keeping well. Thank you :) the base is unusual, I've not seen anything like it. I found some japanese spatter vases & wondered if it might be from there, but again the bases wer...
  2. Lovely Karen. Unusual colours
  3. Thanks for the loves everyone.
  4. Love it Moon. Why 'minty'? I keep hearing that expression, I guess it means good like 'wicked' did awhile back or are you referring to its colour :)
  5. I enjoy very much :) No.3 is odd but very nice.
  6. Mmm yummy, they look good enough to eat!!
  7. Oh Anne these look so pretty. They must cheer you up every morning :)
  8. These look lovely Anne. You have a great collection!
  9. Whoever made it its lovely. I've just bought a yellow vase with a ruffled top & pale blobs like yours but a different shape. The seller thought it was Italian, & i tended to agree until I saw this, no...
  10. Thanks Anne:) I was on my way out the sale when I spotted this. It was the oldest thing on the table, everything else was new ish. I couldn't believe it when I asked how much & he said 20p! I like the...
  11. Thanks Michelle, they're lovely. theyre all so graceful.
  12. Beautiful, I had no idea Kralik made glass like this!
  13. Wow, where's that shop now? ;-) these are stunning. I love the ruffled feet.
  14. I haven't read all the comments yet, but this has to be them. They sure look like candle sticks :) theyre lovely & to have a pair!
  15. old wax! Someone used them as candlesticks then. I agree, their shape looks like candle sticks & the hole about standard candle width. I bet a pair with candles in would look stunning! Are yours on cw?
  16. Thanks Michelle :) I thought it was just cracked and chipped at first but getting it home I see the whole top had been stuck back on. It's nice someone went to the trouble. Do you think it's more of a...
  17. PS. No plank, I ran & got my son to deal with it & its eggs! I think he set it on an island outside...I was in another room :)
  18. Thanks Riply, that ones Very similar. I found a few, minus cannons but all similar and dating to the '20s/30s. Maybe they were a bought toy/model rather than handmade. Or a kit maybe?
  19. Yeh, thanks TC, so you're not only good at finding glass! Well done :)
  20. Thank TC! it does look similar. Going by that link though the smaller spout is for the pipe bowl, I'd have guessed the other way around :-S
  21. P.S, I don't think its porcelain, it's quite heavy.
  22. Hi Kryatango. Thanks for the link. I came across Sèvres while looking into it. It's the closest match I found but not the same. I thought the colours don't look quite right for being an old piece, but...
  23. Hi Surfdub, ive never heard of such a thing, thanks for the info, I'll have a look into it. I thought the smaller spout bit looks like it should go in the mouth (like a pipe)
  24. Hi Elizabeth. True, it depends on your point of view, still its a known fact that smoking can cause heart disease:( I've not seen another one but found Loads of heart shaped ashtrays! I never realised...
  25. Btw, it doesn't smell of tobacco or anything come to that, so no clue there
  26. LOL! Hi Riply. Being a legal citizen it took me a minute to understand what you meant, but I, think, i see what you mean.
  27. Hi Vetraio, Lol, not more Chinese! I don't believe it.
  28. Hi Anne:) no, it's not metal at all. I thought about adding something about it in the description. It's a black glaze but in certain lights looks like metal.
  29. Hi Phil, funny you should say that, I was going to guess Chinese, it has that slightly off clear look. I thought Karen would be the first to say it, lol.
  30. Fabulous! LURVE its colour
  31. These are cool looking ashtrays
  32. Hi Upstate, I've just come across these. Aren't they great!
  33. Lovely. I think I'll always believe these are Chinese now, lol
  34. Thanks Karen. I found a few Doulton plates from this time with country scenes similar to this.
  35. Wish my living room looked like that! It's Lovely
  36. Thanks Melaniej & surf, I hadn't come across them before. I agree the Siamese are adorable & I saw a lovely tabby with Amber eyes like this one. I see they come in different sizes too. I guess being 1...
  37. Thanks Agh :)
  38. Thanks surf:)
  39. :) thanks
  40. Thanks Agh & Jewels. Here's a wiki link to Faince
  41. Thanks Jewels. I do love old plates. I have far too many but can't resist them. I love the scene on here, you can just make out red riding hood & her grandmother in the distance :)
  42. Hi surf, i just found its a Winstanley, not that you'd know it looking at that signature, lol.
  43. Thanks for having a look freiheit. I can't trace it either :(
  44. Hi Weirdpuckett. Thanks for the explanation. I never knew any of that. You'd think it being thick would look darker. I have a lot of green uranium glass, all shades of green, from yellowy to bluey and...
  45. Thank you Anne. I thought it maybe a bit dark for you, I know how you like your bright colours, lol. I've seen lots of similar dragons since getting this. None in a powder jar though, which is nice, a...
  46. Ahh, I'll try it. The more I look the more I agree with you, I think it might be ceramic. It's weird, the bottoms like chalk. I'll do the test & report back :)
  47. Bootson, it goes da ti ta ta to ti ti etc. etc. ;) Freiheit, Thanks for your help. I wondered if it could be identified by the symbol but not sure where to start, I'm not even sure what its a symbol ...
  48. Thanks munequita. Lol, I may obsess a wee bit. I love matryoshka dolls but rarely find them time I do your'll be the first to know ;)
  49. Thanks Karen. I've found a few bits with this look. I like it. It's certainly distinctive :)
  50. Thanks Karen. I agree completely, ive often no idea where i'll end up :)
