  1. not jackson pollock, but still kind of interesting - particularly the colors.
  2. Thank you artistinside and shareurpassion! it is a piece of Tonala pottery from Jalisco, Mexico ['Tonalensis means 'from Tonala'].
  3. Thank you Virginia.vintage!!
  4. this is a really good piece! i've convinced myself!
  5. this is rembrandt, but a printed one from the 1950s or 1960s. the 'brush marks' are just a texture used to make it more 'realistic'. i'm 99% sure, but i've been wrong before!
  6. this is really beautiful, and it looks like gilded silver!
  7. i think that it's one of a pair of antique bigfoot footprints used to spook the newcomers!
  8. nice stein. it might be Minton.
  9. this is a real work of art! very beautifully crafted!
  10. do you KNOW that this is new? seems like quite a bit of work for not a whole lot of value.
  11. who's the illustrator? looks kind of like covarrubias, no?
  12. Thanks Trey!
  13. and thanks to you virginia.vintage!!
  14. thanks shareurpassion. this item only mildly excited me. there are some awaji pieces that would shake me up, but those are pretty amazing. this is just a little utilitarian piece. that's cool that...
  15. Wow! beautiful!
  16. thanks art.pottery and sean68! the clay on the candlestick is pure white. i think that it's the light i used in the photo which makes it appear beige. it's a very warm light.
  17. thank you getthatmonkey! i think you got it!
  18. thanks Vintagefran and FanciGirl! and Jewels! and Kyratango!
  19. it's called a chiton [pronounced like kite-on].
  20. it looks like a death sentence for nice pottery. i have several old fern stands and they just look so unstable, but one has held up one of my prize wooden buddhas for around 5 yrs now, so.... fingers ...
  21. cool tool!
  22. i wouldn't mind something in between. i usually enjoy our 'indian summers', but this has been pretty unbearable lately. mornings are beautiful and afternoons are hell! it won't last too much longer...
  23. it's similar, but not quite. the dutch pieces appear to all have a white ceramic base, whereas this is a very hard, deep red terracotta. the colored drawings on top of the blue base are kind of uniq...
  24. thank you vetraio50! you are a wealth of knowledge!
  25. thanks Vermont. i love the work of the Haida and Tlingit - although i'm more familiar w/ them in British Colombia. i spent the first half of my life in Vermont - Weathersfield - on the Connecticut R...
  26. yes, i think this is a cobbler's bench. nice!
  27. this is also an early Bauer piece - 1910-1915.
  28. i'm pretty certain that the first two pics are an early Bauer pottery piece - from around 1910-1915.
  29. i was reading a book about Oscar Wilde the other day and he wrote a long poem called 'The Sphinx' in 1894, and published it with illustrations by Alaister. Apparently he focused alot on the typeface ...
  30. i just corrected the date on this.
  31. yes, that's it Jewels - lacquered papier mache. japan? india? china? or where?
  32. very cool!
  33. so beautiful!
  34. i'm pretty sure this is a maple samara, not a sycamore fruit. beautiful!
  35. sea urchin or some kind of crinoid button?
  36. i think that it is a maple leaf samara, not a sycamore. very pretty and interesting too!
  37. i LOVE this!!
  38. three fruits?
  39. wow! thank you kyratango. that link really got me thinking. it's some kind of fruit - possibly two kinds. it looks like a citron [buddha hand] which you can sort of see in the last pic. the other ...
  40. how so shrine? a couple other people said the same thing, only that they know that these are Japanese and older! i don't know what to think!
  41. thanks kyratango, Hunter, Sean68, and FanciGirl! i can't find a label on them anywhere.
  42. thanks Trey!
  43. thanks racer4four!
  44. thanks idcloisonne! i think it's really cool too. i bought it from a homeless man selling stuff on the street the other day.
  45. that's a great idea idcloisonne! i just replaced all the photos w/ ones taken w/ a white background. i'm leaning towards persimmon or peach.
  46. thank you idcloisonne. it's not a pendant, as it has a base. also, the first image is right-side-up, looking directly at the front of the object. it's way too big for a pendant. it's surprisingly thic...
  47. 2.5" high x 2.5" wide x 1.75" deep.
  48. really beautiful work! i love the 'green lions'!
  49. beautiful! i like the clear one the most.
  50. thank you FanciGirl!
