My grandmother was an antique dealer and as a child I spent my Saturdays rummaging through every garage sale, estate sale, and flea market around. Needless to say, I developed an extreme appreciation for the past and all its treasures. When other girls hung their New Kids posters above their beds, I hung my Elvis & Marilyn Monroe ones. Look up eclectic in the dictionary, and I am positive you'll find my picture. None of my furniture matches in the traditional sense of the term, and I love it. For as long as I can remember, family and friends have said they are most comfortable in my home...I love that too! My grandmother passed almost 15 years ago, and I still miss her every single day. I collect an eclectic mix of things...old ginger spice tins (a collection my Grandmother started for me when I was 9...I'll refrain from stating how long ago that was), Aynsley cups & saucers, Hollywood memorabilia, Henry Clive tins, Canco tins (I LOVE old tins), and unusual paper ephemera.

  5. Thanks stevedeal001, and I listed in my original post that it is not magnetic. Yes, I should invest in some type of silver testing kit (I believe they make those, or there is a way to do it by weight...

  12. Yes! I can't believe I was right about something, yeehaw! I have looked everywhere for a mark, bu alas...none. It is very heavy for it's size, and tarnished...I don't think pewter tarnishes, correct?...
  13. Is this Van Briggle?

  16. Aether is latin for Ether, so Lotum would make more sense...is it an "m"? I would be very careful with this stuff, though it dies look to be quite old, the chemicals from it's breakdown can be more d...
  17. Sorry, "Lotun"?
  18. I'm a pharmacist (PharmD) by trade, I think I'm seeing "Luton", is that correct? Can you take a closer and larger picture? I'm pretty sure I know, but want to make sure! Very nice find, btw!

  23. Thanks for the love, guys :)
  24. You know what...I think these are Limoges...
  25. Thank you so much for looking into them...I know, they are truly truly marvelous...you should see them in person! I'm beginning to wonder if they're not newer than I was thinking? Like maybe Homer Lau...
  26. You know, I went to the link you provided, and it mentioned Thepotteries.org.... And I'm finding out that actually a good bit of the OLD stuff with "signed", so that may indeed be a signature, but I ...

  48. Actually, I think they may be daisy flowers...I should post a closer picture of the flowers, and will in a bit...as well as a photo of the back (you are right...I should have known better and done so ...
