  1. I agree - it is Ruska!
  2. Thanks! 'Trinket box' works for me; it kind of covers it all!
  3. Thanks for the comment, Sean!
  4. Thanks, everyone!
  5. Great lamp - I'd definitely buy it too! I've seen some pendels of his that are very similar to this. Any way you're related to MF Doom? (just kiddin')
  6. Those books are gorgeous!
  7. Thank, Agram.m!
  8. Great find - Just Andersen items are quite popular here in Denmark. I think it is made of 'disko metal' (named after the Disko Bay in Greenland) which Just Andersen (1984-1943) is famous for and inven...
  9. PS. The glaze used on Mogensen's vase is called 'Sung glaze'.
  10. Great - a very good find! Especially Saxbo is very popular (and pricey!) here in Denmark! I've posted a few Saxvo vases and there's a little bit in my post about the history of Saxbo in case you're in...
  11. Fantastic pieces of art!
  12. Very pretty! It's a pity with the ones that 'got away', but I am sure they are cherished in their new home...
  13. Thank you so much for all the loves, everyone - I appreciate it!
  14. How very elegant!
  15. That glaze is magnificent!
  16. It looks like a Greek head (from a kouros statue) from the Archaic period (600-500 B.C.), so it's either a modern copy of a specific statue or a modern head inspired by Archaic art. Looks like marble ...
  17. It feels strange to 'like' or even 'love' such a thing - but I appreciate that it is an interesting object, seen from a historical point of view (and in your case, also personal)
  18. Hi - it's 'Faënza' ('faience') from Perlo - Italy.
  19. Magnificent!
  20. Thanks, Sean!
  21. Really beautiful!
  22. Thanks- katherine, racer, VioletOrange and aghcollect!
  23. Thanks, vetraio!
  24. Merci beaucoup, Alan et paris1925!
  25. Reminds me of Mt. Rainier...! (I lived in Seattle once)
  26. Thanks for the comment, inky! And for the loves, Ivonne, fledermaus, and racer4four!
  27. Love it, too - both the figurine and the mystery! Mark doesn't ring a bell at all, unfortunately...
  28. Any marks of any kind on it?
  29. Thank you for the loves, everyone!
  30. Thank you so much, artislove! And thanks for the comment, Elisabethan!
  31. Thanks, Cormoran1925!
  32. Is there any way to date pendants by looking at the lock (to determine if it is e.g. just 'Victorian style' or actually Victorian?
  33. Thanks, valentino and VioletOrange!
  34. Thanks for your comments and loves, melanie, vetraio, sean, aghcollect, and racer4four!
  35. Oh, re-discovering forgotten treasures!
  36. I have searched (in vain) for the artist - it looks like 'TL', right?
  37. How elegant!
  38. What an amazing thing! To me it almost looks 1920's/1930's futurism!
  39. In principle only one (located in this beautiful building from 1912 in central Copenhagen: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DANISCO_(Christianshavn).jpg), but several other smaller refineries we...
  40. Thanks, vetraio - I read the article, but there wasn't anything specific about 1905 in it (but thanks, anyway!). I've also looked in the two books written about Hagemann, but it didn't make me any wis...
  41. Thanks for the loves and the comments!
  42. Perhaps you're on to something! - May 1 was and is an important date here - it is still celebrated with ½ a day off, political meeting all over the country etc.
  43. Well discovered - I hadn't even seen that! Interesting - perhaps these vases were not given to him, then, but by him to others (members of the board or other dignitaries?)
  44. I can only agree with vetraio!
  45. Eine sehr hübsche Vase!
  46. I think the letters look Greek...
  47. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  48. The crown stamp and 'PIE' intertwined was used from 1918 and onwards, so the vase was made after 1918. However, it is possible that that it was designed earlier and produced for some time. I'll look i...
  49. Absolutely enchanting!
  50. Oh, I see - that makes sense. My two Bretbys have flat bases; I should have noticed!
