  1. Thanks, peasejean - I will certainly keep you informed! Unfortunately I haven't been able to take it to a specialist or the like, as I have had to spend time on this annoying thing called 'work'! Hope...
  2. Thank you for the comments, kyra, kerry, and surfdub!
  3. PS. Royal Copenhagen was in financial trouble in the 1960's when Nils Thorsson (then Artistic Director) developed the Tenera and Baca lines (both with a modern and colourful look) which became very po...
  4. The bowl is from a line called Tenera which was produced from the 1960's. You're right - it is so nice and colourful (and that's why these things are still very popular).!
  5. Thanks, racer4four (and Woman34)!
  6. Merci beaucoup, Alan!
  7. Thanks, Sean!
  8. Thanks, vetraio - I am very pleased to have it!
  9. It is from Conimbriga in Portugal. It's pretty!
  10. sorry - 'referred'!
  11. You're right - it's called sometimes reffered to as 'the fried egg'. It was designed in 1960 in three different sizes.
  12. The book was published in 1913 by Julius von Pflugk-Harttung (1848-1919) who was a German historian and antiquarian.
  13. Kyra - thanks; you're right - there are marks on the needle, too! I've spent so much time now trying to see what they are, but my magnifying glass isn't good enough, so my next project is to find one ...
  14. Thanks, art.pottery. Belgian, maybe? And thanks for the loves everyone!
  15. Thanks, everyone. I did come across the American Capri line, but I think my vase looks very different in style, so that's why I am not sure that it's McCoy. Did they make pottery with this type of gla...
  16. Thanks for the comments and help - I am glad that my instinct was not completely off; next step must be to have some expert look at it.
  17. Well, I never - you're quite right, Peasejean - there are some minuscule marks on the right side hedge! Very difficult to make out, though. One might be a head of some sort...
  18. Thanks, Roycroft!
  19. That's right - I forgot to take out the safety pin before the picture was taken. Thanks for your comments, Peasejean55!
  20. Thanks, Sean- here's another one posted by getthatmonkeyoutofme som time ago: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/98058-julius-paul-and-sohn
  21. Thanks, Sean. Getthatmonkeyoutofme has posted a Julius Paul & Sohn vase a while ago: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/98058-julius-paul-and-sohn
  22. Follow-up - I am now fairly sure that this was produced at Julius Paul & Sohn in Bunzlau!
  23. Thanks, ho2cultcha
  24. I know exactly what you mean! I too come across quite a lot of Asian stuff, but I know so little about it and it seems so complex, so most of the rime I just leave it... On the other hand, one could a...
  25. Hi Alan - it is not quite correct to call it a Royal Copenhagen item as Bing & Grondahl was only taken over by RC in 1987, and the mark on this fish indicates that it was made much earlier than that.....
  26. Thanks, kyratango!
  27. Thanks, katherinescollection, Radegunder, and Melanie!
  28. :-) Thanks, racer4four!
  29. Thanks for the comments, Sean, and thanks for the loves, vetraio, melanie, aghcollect, and VioletOrange!
  30. There seems to be whole lot of info here: http://www.floraholland.org/mystory.htm
  31. Thank you so much, Alan. I bought it only because I liked the shape and colour - it was only later I found out who made it!
  32. I have a couple of things with identical glaze, decoration etc. I got them from family members who probably bought them in Greece (or possibly Spain)
  33. How wonderful and stylish! In Helsinki last year I was very lucky to find a pair of salad servers on a flea market! I see spoons etc. from time to time, but I'd never seen the salad servers!
  34. I agree - it is Ruska!
  35. Thanks! 'Trinket box' works for me; it kind of covers it all!
  36. Thanks for the comment, Sean!
  37. Thanks, everyone!
  38. 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')
  39. Those books are gorgeous!
  40. Thank, Agram.m!
  41. 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...
  42. PS. The glaze used on Mogensen's vase is called 'Sung glaze'.
  43. 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...
  44. Fantastic pieces of art!
  45. Very pretty! It's a pity with the ones that 'got away', but I am sure they are cherished in their new home...
  46. Thank you so much for all the loves, everyone - I appreciate it!
  47. How very elegant!
  48. That glaze is magnificent!
  49. 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 ...
  50. 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)
