  1. Thanks for the comments, racer and Alan. I also like the slightly mysterious design - it's been described as flames, but I suppose it could also be sprouts of some sort (if indeed it is anything speci...
  2. To me it looks like a Mughal (Indo-Persian) drawing, but I might be wrong...
  3. Thanks, GlueChip - I love it too! I must post my third Revernay soon...
  4. Isn't it just part of the natural colour, you think? If not, what kind of thing is this? The purpose might explain the spots.
  5. Yes, it really is an interesting combination! Thanks for the comment.
  6. Oh, thank you so much, artislove!
  7. Thanks, vetriao, aghcollect, Ivonne, and antiquerose!
  8. Thanks, Sean!
  9. Oh, I wanted to know and it's fun doing this kind of research! A similar vase has been sold here recently (I know an antiques dealer and I saw on his page that he had one and that it had been sold). U...
  10. Yes, austro - I was just trying to say that even without a mark this is certainly a vase which will be noticed! :-)
  11. There's nothing anonymous about this vase! :-)
  12. Hi racer4four - I finally managed to get the Ipsen book from the library and looked up your vase. Apparently it is the work of sculptor Charles Boegh who worked at Ipsen around 1900, and their new gla...
  13. Any marks on the bottom?
  14. Thanks, ho2cultcha!
  15. Thanks for the comments, Sean and racer4four - and thanks for the loves, everyone!
  16. I just did! 'Komet' and 'Skjold' together, though.
  17. Of course this should not be confused with the 'Skjold' series produced at Fyens Glassworks in the 1930's. I have an 'older Skjold' bowl - I better post a picture sometime...
  18. You must have quite a few of these argentas by now! :-)
  19. It was made after 1917 (shown by the mark), but I am certain that it is an earlier design - it looks very much like other things they made in the early 20th century, so I'd say that it was designed ar...
  20. It's P. Ipsens Enke ('P. Ipsen's Widow) from Denmark! You can read a little bit about the history and marks here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/131668-vases-and-bowl-ipsen-denmark-1903-an
  21. Oh, I am green with envy!
  22. What an amusing vase - part vase, part sculpture!
  23. Thanks for the loves and the comments!
  24. Thanks, CindyB and aghcollect!
  25. These things are really popular here in Denmark as well!
  26. A somewhat belated Happy New Year to you! I celebrated New Year's in Istanbul and haven't quite been able to keep up with CW since - am now making an honest attempt!
  27. Oh, how pretty they are - I understand why you were tempted! Love the little crown!
  28. It's perfect!
  29. Thanks you so much, surfdub66!
  30. Thanks, vetraio, VioletOrange, bratjdd, and Cormoran!
  31. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  32. Just to be very pedantic - 'kommen' means 'caraway', not 'cumin' (although the word is the same and they look the same...!). Congrats on your Danish set!
  33. Thanks for the comment, cogito!
  34. I googled 'chocolate crackle' and I see what you mean! Thanks for your comments, Sean and racer4four!
  35. Thanks a lot, SpunkysMom!
  36. It looks very similar to pottery (faience) made in Denmark 1900-1920 - it's not Danish, though. Perhaps German.
  37. And I grew up with it! Still have a few items - it's lovely!
  38. Also looks like faience, not porcelain. Is it light or heavy?
  39. Thanks, cogito, austro and bratjdd!
  40. Thanks, ho2cultcha!
  41. Thanks, racer, and many thanks for your comment!
  42. Thanks Sean and aghcollect!
  43. hi paris1925 - thanks! And thanks, weirdpuckett.
  44. Thanks, racer and Sean - and the rest of the 'lovers' as well!
  45. Tusind tak, vetraio - same to you!
  46. 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...
  47. 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!
  48. Sehr hübsch - I have a fondness for hammered metal!
  49. Poe actually wrote a poem called 'The Raven' - it's as if this figurine was made to illustrate that!
  50. Thanks, vetraio; that's so kind of you!
