Comments

  1. I would add that the molded masks that I have seen of this type carry a Craco stamp, not the hand signature.
  2. Hi, Fledermaus. It does not appear to have been part of a larger sculpture. The mid-placed ridge on the back has a formed hole through it (hard to see in the pictures) from which the mask can be hun...
  3. LOL. Sorry, Sean68. I'm not trying. It's in my nature as a collector to acquire.
  4. Interesting idea, Marytam, but unfortunately the leaves don't match with those of the linden tree.
  5. Wonderful! I'm curious. Does your example have the same glaze combination? Any other notable differences?
  6. I'm not certain what the piece is titled. I've seen a bronze version of the same, as with the Etling mark, and that one is signed a bit differently across the back, but sadly no title or other differ...
  7. Thanks, Sean68. I liked her. My wife commented that she has masculine features and there's not much in terms of décolletage, so it could very well be a "he."
  8. Maybe David with Goliath's head?
  9. I like the new direction. I've often admired this type of British art pottery.
  10. I would recommend finding a copper darkener and then don't polish anything for the lifetime of the piece except for the silver overlay. Could be a Buffalo Metal Shop piece.
  11. Great write-up! Salto is not well known to me, but I appreciate his skill.
  12. Very nice. Amazing that you found this metal detecting!
  13. Phenomenal to find a pair. Beautiful!
  14. Trust me, AmphoraPottery...you have more than a few items in your collection that spark the same reaction in me! ;)
  15. Funny. I hadn't thought about that, but you're right. It could be she's being drawn into the shell.
  16. Wasn't that a scallop shell, though? I guess that wouldn't work too well in a lamp, but the shell selection here does suggest a clue. A German production lamp with an Indian/Pacific Ocean shell...se...
  17. I researched the snail/woman aspect a bit further, and this motif may be a reference to a Japanese myth of a female aquatic demon (oni) named "Sazae-oni." If this is the case, then the piece and moti...
  18. Thanks for the high praise, fledermaus. That exhibition was, indeed, something to see in person I bet. Thankfully the museum has gratiously made the wonderfully photographed and illustrated catalog ...
  19. Keep it clean, blunderbuss. ;) Though, I will admit, she is inticing. Thanks for the loves folks.
  20. Wunderbar! Thanks.
  21. Thanks, Vetraio50! What's weird, however, is that the piece above doesn't have any visible bronze, yet it has a RUM medallion inserted underneath in the alabaster.
  22. Thanks, Vetraio50! Happy Holidays to you, too! Cheers!
  23. I was wondering who picked this one up. Watched it intently. Congrats!!
  24. New to me. Great piece! Poschinger superb.
  25. Thanks, Kivatinitz. You are being modest...I've seen the quality of your pieces too! Warm regards.
  26. Thanks, Sean68 and all others for the loves. It's nice to see that modern artists are still riffing on Art Nouveau motifs, and I love supporting local art!
  27. You too, Sean68. Stunning! LOL. ;)
  28. Thanks all for the wonderful comments. Researching Foudji has been fun.
  29. Very nice. I've never seen that raised Wahliss stamp/mark before.
  30. I'm with Fledermaus...great design!
  31. Austrohungaro - there is indeed a Gurschner catalog raissoné, which was produced in the early 2000s by one of the ancestors of Gurschner and produced solely on CD-ROM. It took me 4 years of constant ...
  32. Stupendous! But, as with the other one posted, this mount unfortunately is not in the Gurschner catalogue raisonné. I do suspect, however, that this mount was made by the same firm as those producin...
  33. I take back my comment about the floating aspect. I can't see any other reason for the internal pegs to be shaped that way other than to support a relatively flat piece. I had a piece with a mount m...
  34. Not Gurschner, and I suspect a "marriage" of glass and mount. That's not to say that either are not beautiful! It would help to see more of the mount and how it fits at the bottom to the glass. As ...
  35. Wonderful piece! Edgar Allen Poe would approve!
  36. Very nice piece. Thanks for the additional information on Hoganas!
  37. Thanks folks. It took some detective work, frankly, to convince me that this was more than just some dwarves. Oddly, the weirder it was, the more my suspicions that this might actually be a notable ...
  38. I like your idea, Jensen, about the the Queen Anne's lace, but the leaves don't fit the description. But, it does possibly make some sense because of the marking underneath with "France" indicated, w...
  39. Thanks folks. Any speculation on the flower/plant type? I went with hydrangea given the structure of the flower bunch, but those leaves are certainly not hydrangea leaves. If anything the leaves lo...
  40. I'll look again, Paris1925, but I don't remember seeing any identification marks. It could have been that there were marks on the bobeche, which I suspect are both missing.
  41. One of his best works, IMHO. Is here: http://yoann-lossel.deviantart.com/art/Thanatos-405759598
  42. Thanks Fledermaus! I encourage you to look at this other works.
  43. That's the Dressler amphora mark.
  44. I love Galle furniture, but with the tables I see a major drawback, in that the inlay is so wonderful that you really don't want to use the table as a table and obscure it by things like vases and wha...
  45. Here you go. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/21672579_emile-galle-four-nesting-tables-bretagne-tables
  46. I've seen the full set of nesting tables from which this one comes. I'll see if can dig up the auction listing. Very nice piece, Warren. Beautiful.
  47. Simple design, yet supremely elegant!
  48. Could be an expensive toast. http://www.wine-searcher.com/find/moet+chandon+dom+perignon+brut+champagne+france/1978
  49. So rare in this size. Very beautiful.
  50. Great write-up!
