  1. Thank you, antiquerose and rniederman. Your comments and interest are greatly appreciated. It remains a mystery!
  2. Thank you, vetraio50.
  3. Thank you, SEAN68 and antiquerose. Antiquerose, I didn't think of it as being a fish, but you're right. It looks like some sort of sea creature. I thought of the camera idea, but I've still not been a...
  4. The markings are the male and female symbols also denoting the planets Mars and Venus, respectively. These symbols have been used by alchemists to denote iron (male) and copper (female).
  5. I found this interesting article on Louisa Fairfield: https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2209&dat=19900203&id=O45KAAAAIBAJ&sjid=M5QMAAAAIBAJ&pg=5462,789273&hl=en
  6. fhrjr2, thank you SO much for the information and for the love! You know, we live in the Northeast in upstate New York so it is pretty feasible that this clothespin doll and box are from our area or f...

  14. Thank you, getthatmonkeyoutofme, racer4four and blunderbuss2.
  15. Thank you, blunderbuss2, racer4four and bobby725. Racer4four, a spiritual purpose didn't cross my mind, until now. Now, it makes me think the box could be an altar of sorts and perhaps the doll is a t...
  16. Thank you, nutsabotas6.
  17. I was able to confer with two reputable dealers in antiquities over the last couple of days and they both conclude that the amulet is more than likely authentic and from the Late Kingdom, around 700-3...
  18. Thank you, Valentino. I don't know much about this piece other than it's an amulet of Sekhmet, the Egyptian lion goddess. The form is consistent with pieces from the end of the New Kingdom until the e...
  19. Thanks, davyd286. Why don't you think it's by a professional?
  20. The mark looks like a modernized snail to me.
  21. What a lush color! Beautiful!
  22. You're welcome! My pleasure!
  23. I LOVE these! I knit and spin fiber into yarn, too. Absolutely beautiful! Real treasures!
  24. This is fantastic! The box is pretty, too.
  25. Is this from your family or did you find it elsewhere. What a wonderful treasure!
  26. Lovely!
  27. This is just fabulous! What a great find!
  28. These are lovely. I like the eclecticism of unmatched candlesticks!
  29. Oh the pleasure is mine! I am a novice as well and if we buy what we love, I think we're on the right track! ;) Thank you for your positive comments and "loves."
  30. It's spectacular! What a find!
  31. This is FANTASTIC!!!
  32. Wow! Awesome find and it is very pretty!
  33. This is fabulous. What a beautiful painting and so wonderful you know the provenance and that you knew and loved your Grandma Chie.
  34. Hi Lee. Thank you, I will. I wasn't too familiar with moonstones and now I just love them after looking at this one piece of yours. Feel better!
  35. So luminous! Just gorgeous!
  36. Lovely!
  37. Very pretty. I think these could be considered to be variations of the sweater clip/guard. I believe there are sweater pins where pins are used in place of the clips or alligator clips.
