Hi, I'm particularly fond of old favorites, glass & ceramics, Art Deco & Nouveau. I also like figurines, Sci Fi or anything unusual or quirky.

  1. Hi WS, I'd never seen it before. It kind of reminded me of the Ugly Mugs you used to get. I was very surprised to find out its by a Native American. its been an interesting item to research.
  2. Hi Karen. It does, it leaves little rainbows around the room :) I prefer it plain to the ones with 3D White things inside. I guess this could be vintage, its yellowed a bit over time & been dropped a ...
  3. TallCakes, TC's Top Cat, a mine of information :) fabulous vase. I wonder if its uranium?
  4. He he, oh he's so sweeeet.
  5. Ooh they're so adorable!!
  6. Hi Alan, what a great find! And info, thanks for posting, it was very interesting. What a good artist. It's a wonderful sculpture
  7. Hi Peggy, these are lovely. They're something I would love to have an example of one day. I've never seen one in real life. I notice on some that the pictures appear to have shadows, often in a paler/...
  8. Aww no, did I? I'm sorry:( Maybe we've bid against each other more often than we realise, we both have simiar tastes :) I remember you won a lovely stripy yellow vase I bid on. Oh well, I guess it ca...
  9. It looks fabulous with the others. Well done :)
  10. Hi Peggy, beautiful. I saw this and was going to have a bid, I'm so glad I didn't bid against you, maybe we should coordinate, lol. It's lovely, and a bargain, I thought ;)
  11. Lol, snap Vetraio. Just what I thought, very Joan Crawford!
  12. Fabulous! Love those handles.
  13. Beautiful
  14. Wonderful item.
  15. Lol, love him. I'd wear it all the time, not just on Halloween :)
  16. How Beautiful Kryatango. I love it. I love 'insect jewely' :) I'd never heard of Pietra dura, thank you for the lesson :) It looks similar to micro mosaic?
  17. Hi, I'm commenting on this in the hope it will bring it to someone's attention. I'm no nearer discovering what the symbol on the front means or even what country to try looking for it, if anyone has a...
  18. Hi Ivonne, ahh thank you. That makes perfect sense:) I found one the same on eBay. There's also some numbers on the other side I hadn't noticed.
  19. Hi TA, I've never done a patent search. How would I go about it?
  20. Hi, this looks like a 'Craw' owl, but they usually have 'craw' written on them, I don't know if the Always do though.
  21. Thanks Kryatango. They're very realistic looking. Funny, but they're completely black but still look like they're looking in a particular direction, how do they do that!?:-S
  22. Thank you Karen. I have it for now:) I can't resist a nice paperweight, even though I don't really collect them as such, they're pretty and Small!
  23. Hi Kryatango. They look great displayed like that! Far more interesting than a bunch of flowers. The butterfly looks so real! amazing
  24. Hi Anne, it's very nice whoever its by. Lovely colours!
  25. Hi T A, thanks for the link :) may I ask what you mean by 'old spec'? Could that be used to date it? I notice the cases, particularly the tops, are a different shape to the medicine bottles ive found ...
  26. Hi WS. Interesting. Maybe that could help to date it? :) first I'd assumed it was aluminium, then tin. There's loads of green in it, you can see it in the 3rd photo. I didn't attempt to clean the insi...
  27. Thanks Kryatango. I like it a lot. It polished up very nicely :) (just don't look inside) I'd never come across a bottle in Any case before, not individually like this.
  28. It's cleaned up very nicely :)
  29. WS, May i pick your brains again. Do you know what metal the case is made of?
  30. Lol, WS, don't ask me, id never heard of a 'campaign' bottle either. I guess it could've been used in campaigns, it's certainly tough enough, but whether that could be proved I haven't a clue. Hi Geod...
  31. Someone thought it could be a 'campaign bottle', I don't know. I couldn't find any campaign bottles like this, only medicine bottles, with labels. I guess with no label it could've been used for just ...
  32. Thank you WS. It's always nice to pick up something and it not be what you expect :)
  33. Hi WS. Thank you for the link:) I saw those while looking into this. I thought it likely a medicine bottle. It's a shame there's nothing written on it anywhere. Would you say it's late Victorian era o...
  34. Hi Anne. Yey it arrived safe..no jinx this time :) it just has room on a shelf. I tend to buy then worry where I'll put it later. I'm no nearer moving, when I do a lot of my collections will have to g...
  35. Hi Phil. Welcome fellow Brit. You have two beautiful items listed. I look forward to seeing what else you post :)
  36. Superb! Really beautiful. Amazing it survived, it looks so delicate!
  37. Peggy! Where did Karen come from? Sorry about that. I agree, I love applications, particularly threading. I guess it's not uranium glass? (I should know, I'm the expert ;) it'd look great under uv if ...
  38. Thank you Peggy. I think that's my favourite too:) I like its sculptured, plain look.
  39. Lovely Anne. I like the round handle, very Deco :)
  40. Elegant, simple & beautiful
  41. Hi Karen. Wow what a pretty vase. I've never seen this pattern before, let alone any posy bowls with 'veins'
  42. Thank you for the congrats everyone and Hedge for a great game, i really enjoyed playing :)
  43. Oh Wow! Fantastic. What an apt prize! I can't thank you enough. It's been great fun taking part. I'm still in shock that i won, lol.
  44. Love this Hedge. It looks like uranuim Carnival glass!
  45. A glass book. That's a first :)
  46. Hi Izzy, Whys people giving you a hard time? I agree with Scott, you saved this from the tip. True it would look nice not painted but what you've done looks great, its looks smart, is usable and is Sa...
  47. Hi Vintagelamp. It's nice to meet a fellow Trekkie. I've honestly never seen one of these before. Maybe they're more common in the USA. I think it's fantastic, I'd have it on my wall :)
  48. Aww no, i got another one wrong :( I love this. I didn't realise it had a hole in the middle. May I ask what it is?
  49. Fabulous vases Lisa. I love the first one.
