  1. Thanks, Fledermaus.
  2. Thanks, Riply206. It was your lead that led to the solution, so you really deserve some of the credit! Thanks again for the help! Cheers.
  3. If the 1921 date is to be believed in the other reference works, then these production stills are probably from The Adventures of Tarzan, which features the first actor to portray Tarzan on film, Elmo...
  4. Eureka! I believe both to be production stills from early silent movie versions of Tarzan. See the following website. There is a blue-tone picture that has the same scenery and female as the second...
  5. Hi, Vintagefran. They do show up more frequently on eBay France. "papillon" and "Billere" work well as search terms, but you have to be on the French version of eBay (www.ebay.fr)
  6. Thanks for the pointers! I found a book entitled, "Silent: American Silent Motion Picture Photography," that indicates that Curtis was employed by DeMille and Paramount in the late-10s and early-20s.
  7. Beautiful Art Nouveau style.
  8. Looks like a die cut error. Probably worth some nice cash.
  9. Thanks Sean68!
  10. Certainly in the French "gres" tastes, but I suspect it may be domestic. Hard to say it's production date. Regardless, I love it!
  11. Special beyond words. The green eyed monster rests upon my shoulders.
  12. Great vase and wonderful sleuthing/attribution job!
  13. Hi, Mac. Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. These Heliosine-like pieces, I strongly believe, did originate in Germany/Bohemia rather than France. Britain remains a slight possibility, but m...
  14. Thanks for the loves folks. I'm still hoping someone out there may know something about the artist to sculpted the piece. The mystery is driving me crazy!
  15. Stupendous piece of Secessionist metalwork, Vetraio50! Well done!
  16. Thank you, Paulolorraine. Are you the ceramics dealer in France from whom I get update emails every once in a while?
  17. After some additional digging, I do believe the base to be made of Rosso Levanto Red Marble, which takes its name from the Italian town where it was discovered near the Rivera of La Spezia.
  18. Thanks all. If others are interested, these "F. Billère" pieces come up every so often on eBay France (ebay.fr) and are fairly reasonable in price. I just wish I knew more about their production. A...
  19. Thanks Fledermaus and others. I'm not certain if the eyes had jewels, but I'm inclined to think not given how the eye holes are textured and the even patina inside and outside the sockets. As for na...
  20. IMHO = In my humble opinion
  21. Like it? I love it! Early Fratelli Toso is not common.
  22. Looks like Fratelli Toso to me too…and a great one at that!
  23. Circa 1900-1910.
  24. Ha! Again! Was your competition here too. I was bidding upon it with the thought that it might be a Betty Hedrich enameled piece.
  25. Nice to have a pair. I had one of this type with gold enamel painting. Definitely Rindskopf.
  26. Wonderful watch, Tony!
  27. Ha! I was wondering who was my competition! Nice blue color and form.
  28. It is my understanding that it was the type of porcelain that Seger helped to develop that would allow for greater glaze/coloring effects. Most KPM Seger works have similar thick, glossy glazes, whil...
  29. It doesn't surprise me that a few of you mentioned Dalpayrat, because I thought the same thing when I bid upon it at auction. However, the form is not stoneware, being made out of soft paste porcelai...
  30. Hi, Idcloisonne. Depending upon the region of the world, I think it is reasonable to say that ceramic and glass design from that period shared similar source inspirations (e.g., nature, symbolism, or...
  31. Very pretty. The decor type (not necessarily the colors) looks similar to what I've seen attributed to Heckert Marmopal. I'm not necessarily saying that's what it is, only that the decor characteris...
  32. Looks like a weird Astglas/Formosa hybrid. Very cool.
  33. Fabulous! But, I would add that Luber's tiles were press molded by a machine in a cuenca fashion. The faces were, however, always hand painted and their quality sublime.
  34. Almost certainly Heckert. Does the surface of the glass have a matte quality? Does is fluoresce under UV light? While Heckert, I don't think the design was implemented by Ludwig Sütterin. His desi...
  35. Wonderful collection and great display! That cabinet w/ plate rail is stunning (as Sean68 would say). I see what you mean about the style difference on that tile and the cleanness. That's what puzz...
  36. Great piece! Love the form.
  37. Sorry, I always do that. Astglas.
  38. Is the underlying decor Astraglas? It looks like Astraglas with spatter/confetti overlay. Wild!
  39. I've always loved Josef Knížek pieces. The ancient Roman glass patina that he approximated is phenomenal. Sweet vase, Warren.
  40. Thanks for the information, Jewels1900. Do you know how Pilkington tiles were marked from that period? I was under the impression that Pilkington had a distinctive impressed P/rose type mark, plus s...
  41. Wonderful glaze effects. I love the form, too!
  42. Wow. How did I miss this one?! Amazing.
  43. Oz, we think alike. Already shot off an email. Fingers crossed!
  44. Wow. So sorry!
  45. Oz, I think you might be on to something! The style/rendering are very similar.
  46. Here's one in yet another height size. http://www.prices4antiques.com/Bohemian-Glass-Pohl-Karl-Vase-Four-Sided-Maiden-Iridescent-Green-11-inch-D9784166.html
  47. Thanks. Making the change now!
  48. Craven Dunnill tile works is a possibility based upon similar hand tube-lined work, but I'm uncertain of their marks. See here: http://www.darwincountry.org/explore/013327.html
  49. Thanks for the information, Surfdub66! I ruled Minton out given the lack of their mark on the reverse. Did Johnson Brothers use the simple "England" press mark?
  50. Thanks, Jensen. I'm not done yet! ;)
  51. See more
