  5. thank you katherinescollections!

  15. thank you so much rucklczglass! very helpful! do you know why one of them is bigger than the other?
  16. wow! really beautiful! it's unusual to see roseville w/ such gloopy glaze on the bottom.
  17. i think it looks Danish - like early Gunnar Nyland stuff. it's beautiful!
  18. ditto what Kevin said. Stations of the cross. can you post a pic of all 15 of them, so we can figure out why there are 15?

  23. thank you katherinescollections!
  24. i know valentino97! i couldn't believe my luck until after i got it home and looked at it for awhile. the goodwill near me has almost entirely junk for sale - and useful household things which move w...

  26. thank you vetraio!
  27. thank you mikelv85 and Manikin!
  28. very cool!!

  30. does anyone know of when she wore this kind of crinoline and flamenco skirt? and bra? it seems kind of earlier - maybe 1935-38?
  31. 'i touch my nipple when i think of you.'

  42. i hope i got it w/ my last comment after your last comment too!
  43. could the mark be an H inside an M?! it kind of looks like it. although, i'd be really happy if it were a Harrison Macintosh, i doubt it. i think that the glazed over bottom, and very neat unglazed...

  45. me too!!! i'm very happy w/ this beauty!
  46. wow! great find!
  47. are these chawan? or yunomi? i think of yunomi as taller than wide, and chawan as wider than tall. or am i mistaken?
  48. thank you vetraio! it is definitely a yunomi and not a chawan. it is exactly 4 inches high by 3 inches wide. it kind of reminds me of the work of TETSUAKI NAKAO. i don't think that it was made by hi...
  49. wowza!! this is a real treasure Vetraio - one of the coolest pieces i've seen in a long time! of course, i'm very prejudiced towards Mexican art.
