  1. wow! nice one!
  2. a Kurdish friend of mine uses his to make a delicious mint tea in. these were used. here's a more accurate description: Antique Copper & Brass Arabian Islamic Turkish Dallah Coffee/Tea Pot Bedouin.

  4. here's a good description: This form of ritual water vessel, known as chambu, is usually associated with the Indian holy city of Varanasi, on the bank of the Ganges, deemed to be the abode of Lord Shi...
  5. This is actually a brass and copper ovoid vase. it has some ritual use and a name, i'm sure, but i'm not sure what it is.
  6. interesting!
  7. thanks vintagelamp!
  8. any ideas about who might have made this?
  9. thank you Nevada. i did not know that!
  10. thanks valentino!
  11. thanks Nevada!
  12. love this piece!
  13. thank you Rockbat, Kyra, Jeneric, OlofZ, and shareurpassion! i think it is Norwegian. i found lots of pics of similar ones [although not as nice as this one] marked 'Scandinavian' or 'Norwegian'.
  14. thank you jscotto363 and Deano! it reminds me of a 10 lb swirl marble!
  15. thank you artfoot and Efesgirl. Roselane does make sense. the piece is very nice, it's just that seam at the base which isn't so nice.
  16. one of these days i'll get to my aunt and uncle's home up in northern New York on Lake Champlain where the majority of the collection is now.
  17. it looks like chert to me.
  18. looks like a bonboniere from a fancy wedding. maybe an Indian wedding?
  19. please post pics of the entire object so we can see what we are looking at. thanks!
  20. Thank you Kevin. i agree w/ you. the surface is probably better than any of my other awajis. it's absolutely perfect - no scratcher or anything.
  21. thank you mary and Nevada. this one's a keeper! but i sure would like to know who made it. the glaze reminds me of John Glick's glazes.
  22. very nice dog portrait!
  23. it takes a very sure hand to capture a human gesture in a single, fast brushstroke, like i see here. beautiful painting!
  24. my memere and pepere had several very large and beautiful ones of these, along with many other gorgeous sculptures brought back from Africa in the 1930s and 40s from my uncle who was a White Robe Miss...
  25. great eye you have!
  26. you really do pick up cool stuff! this is one of my favorites!
  27. beautiful! they look like Shino glazes to me.
  28. i sent a photo of these bowls to a friend in Ecuador. He showed them to his mother who is a potter in Puyo and she said that they were made by a member of the Quechuan Dagua family in Canelos, Ecuador.
  29. there's a tray that goes under them too. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/176310-franciscan-condiment-set-in-as-colors
  30. hi racer4four. first, there's something about the glaze which caught my eye and when i turned it over, i saw the 'Japan' semi-circular mark which is at 7 pm in the photo. not all awaji is marked, bu...
  31. thank you maryh1956! yes, i do like a hot cup of tea now and then.
  32. always post a photo of the back/bottom of mystery pieces.
  33. is this seto ware from japan?
  34. wow! not sure how i missed this textured treasure!
  35. i think i have a couple pieces by this same person - almost the same cypher and same clay color too.
  36. very nice bowl! you might try posting it on the Studio Art Pottery Identification Page on fb.
  37. this is more info than i found on w/h searching for a long time! thank you!
  38. wow! i missed this understated beauty!
  39. thank you for your posts artfoot! i am learning a lot from them and i love your collection! would you mind posting a photo of the bases and/or signature of these puppies? thanks again.
  40. i have some pieces w/ this same signature - and i see it fairly often out there. i'm very curious now!
  41. from what i can tell, this is a VERY rare print of his. i could find similar ones, but not this one in all the collections i looked at online.
  42. no problem PCcollector. you did make me scratch my head, but not much time to ponder these days!
  43. thanks antiquerose!
  44. anytime antiquerose!
  45. thomas moran!
  46. thank you Dizzydave! do you know who painted it?
  47. Thank you very much PostCardCollector and vintagelamp!
  48. thank you artfoot! you solved the mystery quickly! i can make out a 2 on the bottom.
  49. thank you Efes! i think it is too. even better in person. now i'm really curious where it was painted and what the scene is...
