  1. I just think of all the glass & pottery I could display in that - of course I probably wouldn't have room for another cabinet :-) Love the exposed tenon sonstruction! Cheers! - Bob
  2. The craftsmanship of that pontil is amazing to behold!
  3. Yes, & difficult to tell from photos some times when buying on the internet.
  4. Thanks Craig! I have edited the item as a "CAVEAT EMPTOR" - Thank you again for your time and boundless knowledge!
  5. A link to Alan's very interesting post...
  6. Hi Alan, Here's my posting of the 3 pieces in my own collection from a few years ago...
  7. One of the nicest feathered designs that I've seen in a while! I'm anxious to see you post more of your collection! - Regards, - Bob
  8. Deano, like you, I still think the vases are nice pieces. You & Craig are probably right with the attribution. Maybe some day I will see a green vase like mine advertised correctly with the sticker st...
  9. philmac - thank you again! - a very interesting thread for me too. I will be keeping an eye out for Monart if I'm ever lucky enough to find one here in Virginia.
  10. Hi Deano - I have a slightly different vase in green. No marks or stickers. I like mine too, even if not Kralik or Monart - they were certainly influenced and are well made. If you have time please ta...
  11. PhilMac - that eBay community base looks very much like mine. They discussed both Monart and Kralik. Ironically it may be neither.
  12. Fascinating Monart resource PhilMac! I've bookmarked it for future reference. Though the white craquelle looks fairly similar, I haven't found that precise shape. Much appreciated!
  13. I may be able to guess the researcher to whom Craig refers. I am trying to keep an open mind and have not found an exact documented match for mine yet. I'm glad I didn't overpay for mine, but I agree ...
  14. Thanks Alan - your link shows similarity in the crawuelle and in the style of the Pontic mark.
  15. Thanks PhilMac - I will look at Monart too.
  16. Craig's link re: Margie's Garden looks strongly like my vase only in a different color. I may try to contact the company.
  17. I have some glass bards and some glass cats too... I try to keep them separate... wouldn't want the cats to eat the birds :-) - Very nice canary! - Cheers! - Bob
  18. My neighbor is a real Mopar guy. He had 2 '66 Chargers, one with a 440 and an automatic in silver, and the other a 383 with a 4 speed in red. Sadly, he sold them both when he retired. I used to build...
  19. It is completely unmarked Malkey, so it could be just about anything at this point, and Kralik has not been completely ruled out. I was wondering if racer-4-four might know if Japanese or not?
  20. Here in the Colonies (Virginia) it is 72 degrees F. and sunny today! I may need to get my coat out of the closet soon :-) - have a nice evening - I guess it is about 5:15 PM UK time. Lunch time here!
  21. Cool find! - I'm a N'awlins boy myself! - Cheers, - Bob
  22. Beautiful vase, just as long as it isn't Siberia!!! What can I say, I'm a silber-tongued devil :-) Cheers, - Bob
  23. Much appreciation to swfinluv, Manikin, aura, sklo, vetraio, racer, Oroyoroy, Alfredo, Malkey, Sean, Michelle, Ivonne & the ever LovelyPat! It is so much fun to love glass collecting and it is nice to...
  24. Wow, I got so busy at work and at home that I haven't had time to indulge in the conversation. Thanks to everybody for the loves & comments. I think of the silversmith 112 years ago accidentally holdi...
  25. Thanks to Brunswick, blunderbuss, valentine, AutoPinback, vetraio, racer, & fortapache for looking & loving - Cheers, Bob
  26. Efesgirl - you are the Miss MArple of Mystery solving!... and neat JIP also - Congratulations ladyvue!
  27. An amazing slice of 19th century history... factoid... Ernst II of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha was Price Albert's brother. (Queen Victoria's husband) - Cool piece!
  28. They are a perfect wedding!
  29. I had one when I was a kid!
  30. UPDATE - Still running great - I like to wear all of the Bulovas and wind them at least once a month to keep the mechanisms ticking :-)
  31. Your online collection is really developing nicely! Hope you have a nice evening in the UK! - Bob
  32. Edited article again just a bit - Thanks for the excellent input as always Rick & Michelle!
  33. Much appreciated Rick & Roy (plus your horse!)
  34. Thank you Rick & Michelle - the reverse looks like a Lunar landscape! (LOL) Bob
  35. Thanks racer, I would have liked one with less flat spots in the strike, but these are not often founs in even this nica condition. - Cheers! - Bob
  36. Thank you kindly Ivonne, racer, Bob, swfinluv, Rick, petey, aura, vetraio, and Pat!
  37. Yes Rick, it would be difficult to only collect 12" and larger objects. I have a couple of shelves full of smalls... better yet, with coin collecting, hundreds can be stored in very small boxes in 2"x...
  38. Thanks Rick & Michelle for the excellent thoughts.
  39. Edited title & description - thanks sklo!
  40. Thanks sklo - interesting discussion on your link... perhaps Rindskopf makes sense. I have other pieces with hallmarked collars that are definitely Rindskopf if differing decors and shapes. Rindskopf ...
  41. Thank you Peasejean & sklo!
  42. Ah - thank you Malkey! It is nice to have the hallmarks!
  43. Very nice! Is there a Spring & Autumn?
  44. I would rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy :-) Cheers, Bob
  45. About the company.
  46. Thanks for the input & the "loves' everyone - I have edited the story to go with my original instincts as being Kralik.
  47. The kind thoughts are appreciated Caperkid, Iggy, Alan, swfinluv, & valentine! - Cheers, - Bob
  48. Appreciate the kind thoughts Vetraio, blunderbuss, AdeleC, & SpiritBear! - Cheers, Bob
  49. Much appreciated Vetraio, Alan, swfinluv, Ivonne & Ozmarty... How are things in Ozzie-land Marty? Haven't chatted with you in a while. - Cheers, - Bob
  50. Neat-o! Sort of an Egyptian/Nubian motif?
