  6. thank you kyratango! i guessed the tiger eye and wondered about the stained agate, but i've never heard of cornaline.
  7. i used to sit in a short pew like this when i was an altar boy over 40 yrs ago!
  8. this is one sign i don't have but am looking for!
  9. i love the designs! i can recognize your posts immediately w/out looking to see who posted them, SEAN68. you have a real nice style in your collecting!
  10. it kind of looks like a signed etching to me, but i'm not an expert and just looking at your pictures.
  11. thank you SEAN68!

  20. this is just beautiful vetraio50!
  21. thank you CanyonRoad. i appreciate the information.
  22. thank you CindB and Vetraio50! i've seen people w/ feet like that - mainly amongst indigenous people of the Amazon. i think that this guy is Ainu. that is interesting about the oculos vetraio50. i'...
  23. that's what you get when you cross a maribou stork w/ a pink flamingo!
  24. Thanks CindB!
  25. cute, but the age is way off, me thinks!
  26. exactly antiquerose!
  27. thanks kyratango. yes, it does look like walnut.
  28. thank you antiquerose and SEAN68! yes, i think it would make a good goldfish bowl.
  29. what's going on in the distance? is it a battle w/ ships? or just factories?
  30. wow! these are amazing! the way they capture the feeling of fishiness and deep depths!
  31. that looks right antiquerose - except the size. this one is a little over 16" long and the bed, bath, beyond one is 12" long.
  32. i just looked it up and i think that this is an extra large Blenko Fish Bowl. it's 16 inches long by over 10 inches high - much larger than others i found online.
  33. i can't believe how beautiful this is!! wasn't there a very big 'red geranium' craze in Germany around 1930?
  34. thank you katherinescollections and shareurpassion!! you are right. it is Maddux. i believe it's an earlier piece by the signature and the holes.
  35. thank you TallCakes. these pieces are pretty old, i'm certain. they don't feel like molded glass, and you can feel the sharp edges. i'm not sure i understand what gray cut glass is and i googled it...

  39. kind of like van briggle, no?

  42. is this a cheese dish and dome or a butter dome? i think it may be Libbey.
  43. thank you SEAN68, Katherinescollections, Alan2310, robin56, and shareurpassion! i went back today and they had quite a few more pieces of the same cut glass. i went to buy a punchbowl w/ the same pa...
  44. thanks again sean. i really like the book for the graphics, but also for the content. it's such a critical issue, despite the mass denial of it!
  45. where are you located? i saw one of these late at night many years ago - here in Oakland, CA! they were supposedly extirpated here in the coastal range around 90 yrs ago, but i'm sure that's what i ...
  46. thanks SEAN68! it has some very cool graphics in it.
  47. next time, i'll have to clean them up BEFORE gluing them!
  48. i'm pretty sure that this is a very old polychrome pot. i've seen the shape and the some simple designs which are similar before, but i can't remember where. i like it a lot!
