  1. Thanks, racer and Sean - and the rest of the 'lovers' as well!
  2. Tusind tak, vetraio - same to you!
  3. I just looked in the two-volume reference book 'Bunzlauer Keramik' and found your vase which was made in three different sizes (hence the '2'´; 75 is the shape number). It was made with different type...
  4. Actually, I now think it's a bonbonnière (candy dish) as it is similar in size and shape to a silver one I have also posted and which is definitely a candy dish!
  5. Sehr hübsch - I have a fondness for hammered metal!
  6. Poe actually wrote a poem called 'The Raven' - it's as if this figurine was made to illustrate that!
  7. Thanks, vetraio; that's so kind of you!
  8. Et kyratango aussi!
  9. Thanks Sean, aghcollect, and CindB!
  10. So do I, katzl!
  11. Thanks, surfdub! And katherine!
  12. Yes, this one had one too, but unfortunately it is illegible!
  13. Congratulations!
  14. I think the style is traditional, but the vase is not necessarily old, as pottery is still made in this style - but it's still pretty! And yes, ho2cultcha, it was a very interesting vacation as the co...
  15. Thanks, Sean!
  16. Thanks everyone - cogito, your 'dwarf vase' from Höganäs reminded me that I have this one, so I thought I'd better post it!
  17. It's definitely Iranian/Persian - last year I went to Iran on vacation and saw quite a lot of this kind of pottery!
  18. Vases are rarely amusing, but this one is! Fantastic!
  19. Yes, you may be right (about immigrant bringing items with them) - I don't think this pottery was imported and sold in Australia.
  20. It's amazing - a museum piece!
  21. Queen Anne's lace or another plant from the same family?
  22. Yes, it is a little strange, actually. Royal Copenhagen I can understand, but it seems that also lesser known pottery somehow turns up in Australia. Alas, no Australian pottery turns up here!
  23. Yes, Elisabethan is right: Alma Andersen & Søren Klein Rasmussen owned 'Alma Keramik' and the pottery was manufactured at Brack and Sons (Carl Vilhelm Brack) in Taastrup (about 20 km from Copenhagen).
  24. Here's a useful site which also has a gallery - maybe you can find info there: http://www.fieldingscrowndevonclub.co.uk
  25. Perhaps you could post a picture of it? Could be interesting to see!
  26. I think it looks like an Amphora vase from Czechoslovakia.... Or at least that style.
  27. Funny you found one of these which are very popular (and expensive) here. I have a large bowl which is red on the inside. These bowls were designed by civil engineer Herbert Krenchel (who died earlier...
  28. C'est fantastique! I wish I had one!
  29. Thanks, everyone, for the comments and loves!
  30. Thanks, Jewels - yes, I've seen others vases with this type of glaze, too (I don't have any, apart from this, though).
  31. Thanks, GlueChip - yes, they show up on French ebay from time to time (usually exorbitantly priced!) - I bought this one and the blue-and-white one I have also posted here on an auction, and I was ama...
  32. Lovely - could you add a picture of the bottom as well?
  33. Oh, you have a whole collection now!
  34. I surrender - I do think it must be a tin of some sort, although I am still intrigued by the lock (but I guess if you have some particularly delicious marrons glacés you would want to lock them up!). ...
  35. Could be Danish, but I think the '800' indicates German (I think it would be 830 in Denmark).
  36. Yes, I've looked very closely, but so far I haven't found any marks, unfortunately.
  37. Thanks, paris1925 - you may very well be right!
  38. Thanks, Sean! And paris1925 - yes, I guess that's a possibility, but then I wonder why the box has a lock...?
  39. Hi Budek - the label reads 'Danish Antiques Dealers' Association'. However, to me it doesn't look very Danish, I have to say... But it's pretty anyway!
  40. I have one in white, too (oddly enough found in Denmark!): http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/113291-bubble-pattern-glass-bowls I think the white glass is quite charming, especially when the...
  41. Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm and comments - it's great to be able to share one's interests with others (my friends & family don't always share my interest in 'old pots'!)
  42. Thanks, paris1925 - yes, it is quite interesting how the vases have ended up here... There are a few others around (owned by a well-known art collector) and they all come from Copenhagen, so it is gen...
  43. As a 'drip glaze buff' (if such a things exists), I just love the glaze on this vase!
  44. Thanks for the kind comment, inky!
  45. The bowl belongs to a whole line of bowls, dishes, vases etc. called 'Tenera', developed in the 1960's by Nils Thorsson at Royal Copenhagen along with some young artists. The signature on this bowl (K...
  46. Thanks, vetraio (and the rest of you as well!) - and yes, the 'Rimfrost' glaze is quite unusual!
  47. That elephant looks so cheery!
  48. Yes, I too thought of Carl Fischer/BKW, so perhaps... And thanks, VioletOrange!
  49. Thanks wksgibson and vetraio!
  50. I've seen one with bees, meant for honey!
