  4. thank you noob. it does look a lot like 'tako karakusa'. i wasn't familiar w/ that pottery before. thanks again for your comment.
  5. beautiful!! i love classic shaped vases. [my folks were friends w/ bill and phyllis coors when i was a kid. i think that they owned coors ceramic co.]
  6. it looks like a Christmas statue - like maybe from a creche. it's very pretty.
  7. i think it's very early as far as pixies go - right around 1950. the quality of the painting and airbrushing is very good - the best i've seen. i found a couple similar ones online which were smalle...
  8. pudgey pete! v. cute!
  9. i love your imagination racer4four! you had me convinced and searching the globe for Vermillion Woods and the village of Buttercup! and what a good Pixie Aster is - sort of a Quanyin of the Pixie Pla...
  10. it could be a status thing to have so many 'servants'. i get a much more sinister feeling from this pic. even if they are 'servants', i doubt they were treated much better than slaves. but what do i...
  11. thank you maryh1956! that's an excellent link. i went thru all of them and couldn't find it either. i'll draw it out and post a pic of it.
  12. ditto for me Deano - in 1980, i met this crazy cast of high-schoolers from all across the states, but mostly from St. Louis, Missouri [La PLAza] maybe and Sandusky, OH, maybe?? we put on a rocky horro...

  14. this is really beautiful design!
  15. thanks blunderbuss2 and again scottvez! i really appreciate your taking the time to teach me the details of this. so often, people simply dismiss a piece, and just as often, owners refuse to see the...

  17. thank you blunderbuss2, officialfuel, scottvez, racer4four, and Virginia.vintage! i don't think it's too new, as there are repairs and replacements of screws and bolts on it. it's made of wood and m...
  18. i have a similarly colored large bowl here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/135942-very-heavy-glass-bowl--8-inches-across i think it may be the work of Flavio Poli.
  19. i can't forget the sound of these nor the feeling of getting whacked really hard in the fingers w/ these. i probably earned that!
  20. i'd love to see a pic of the outside too.
  21. does anyone recognize the pottery mark on this piece?
  22. thank you robin56! do you have them posted here? what do yours look like?
  23. they do look an awful lot like Martin Bros.
  24. these are really cool!
  25. me too!
  26. soooo cute!!
  27. thank you very much katherinescollections. i looked it up and i think you are spot-on!
  28. in ecuador!
  29. BEWARE of vintage-looking pottery w/ that brownish stain splattered on the bottom. it's probably recent from china. it's fooled me before too!
  30. Thanks Elisabethan!
  31. and Puyo.
  32. i think it's from Ecuador. i've seen quite a bit of woodwork w/ similar designs and themes on it. the toucan and the volcano are used a lot there - particularly around Pastaza.
  33. thanks SEAN68 and toracat! i think i meant to say 'turquoise', and not 'jade'.
  34. thanks SEAN68 and toracat! i think i meant to say 'turquoise', and not 'jade'.
  35. were they much more $$ before? i purchased mine for around $75. forget exactly...
  36. anyone know what kind of jade this is?
  37. so true Pencil-necked-geek! the 'google' before the internet!
  38. thanks Alan2310!!
  39. it's the eyeliner!! it just cracks me up to see Mary wearing eyeliner 'a la chola'!
  40. thank you kyratango! i guessed the tiger eye and wondered about the stained agate, but i've never heard of cornaline.
  41. i used to sit in a short pew like this when i was an altar boy over 40 yrs ago!
  42. this is one sign i don't have but am looking for!
  43. 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!
  44. it kind of looks like a signed etching to me, but i'm not an expert and just looking at your pictures.
  45. thank you SEAN68!
  46. yes eye3beauty, you're right. thanks!
  47. thank you DrFluffy!
