  1. Looks like turquoise and onyx, Alan. Efesgirl can help you with the ID, she's good with Mexican jewelry. :)
  2. Just watched the movie, "The Quiet American" yesterday. Nice collection, thanks for sharing. :)
  3. I am honored to have such a beautiful pattern named after me! Ha ha! TallCakes, these are beautiful, I had not seen them before, and I thought I'd seen all your threads, will have to look again. By ...
  4. Thanks for the love, inky, and valentino97. :)
  5. Thanks for the love, Hel1, nutsabotas6, brunswick, and vetraio50. :) I knew you would appreciate these earrings, Ken! :)
  6. CW posted this on their FB page, an astute observer offered some information there if anyone would care to look.
  7. Oh my goodness, a whole Etsy shop of them!!! :P Pascale, my dear, I wouldn't repeat the joke, it's horrible and disgusting. [Send me an email, lol!] :P
  8. Be sure and update us on what you find out! :)
  9. Thanks for the love, skivatinitz, vetraio50, and brunswick. :) Karen, I had half a mind that this was Chinese, don't know what my hand was thinking, LOL! ;))
  10. These were very popular in the 60s, the style is called bullicante, I believe. antiquerose knows which Murano house made them.

  12. You can take photos of the marks under a magnifying glass, or better a loupe if you have one, and post them with the other photos.
  13. I love mosaic art like this. My guess is it would be a kit around the same time as the gravel art kits were popular, maybe? Handsome fellow! :)
  14. Can you tell us how he knows this is a Nike ad sign? The provenance, in other words. It does look like their swoosh, or whatever it is they call their logo, my guess is that this may have been c...
  15. From what I've read and seen, WPA art is highly collectible and valuable. I would contact the Smithsonian about the sculptures you referenced, ask who curated that exhibition or who their expert is o...
  16. Dr. Fluffy = nadia. freiheit = Gudrun sklo42 = Peggy. Sorry guys, I'm terrible with names, am trying to remember! :)
  17. Five days is a long time not to acknowledge posts offering information from our jewelry experts who I'm sure are equally busy. We are very lucky to have a nice little community of collectors here, ni...
  18. Thanks for the love, Hel1, Efesgirl, TassieDevil, mikelv85, JImam, aura, WandlessFairy, skivatinitz, Manikin, and kyratango. :) Bonnie, yes, I come across the Lucite confetti bracelets fairly ofte...
  19. They are all gorgeous, and I would love to see your Asian Selini. Those are quite collectible now, I see. :)
  20. Love your photos. For a time was very close with a man who worked on a rail line, we'd be talking on the phone when he was at work and if his window was open I could hear the trains go by so close, n...
  21. Manikin, what about the Russian peasant doll up in the corner? Her face is more uniquely painted than the others. I agree, that Big Eyes doll is the prize! :)

  23. Thanks for the love, VikingGirl, TassieDevil, mikelv85, JImam, Efesgirl, and aura. :) Thanks, Bonnie, don't know what came over me, lol! It's a hard one to figure out, isn't it? The base is perf...
  24. Well don't repeat it, PP! :P Fred, I just posted the link to this thread on your thread, lol, we must have crossed posts. :)) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/227027-antique-prosthetic...

  26. Thanks for the love, Valentino97, and for your comment. These old Lucite bracelets are so appealing, and more readily available, I hardly ever come across Bakelite, but not a week goes by that I don'...
  27. Some or all of these beauties might also be Selro Selini, Val?
  28. Stunning set of jewels, Ken, wow! :)
  29. "Big Eyes" is one of my favorite movies, it's based on the true story of the original painter of these portraits, Margaret Keane, and her husband, Walter. Her paintings were the inspiration for all t...
  30. kyratango just posted a thread about a prosthetic eye brooch a day or two ago.
  31. Oh how beautiful! A great design for pearls!
  32. A fantastic collection of vintage plastic: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/395472410998515415/
  33. Very welcome, I hope you find an answer. Try another museum or authority on silver marks, someone has to know.
  34. Thank you, I will try that on that filigree brooch I bought, want to see if it will shine up. :)
  35. A Marine told me a very dirty joke about a glass eye, not repeating in public! :P
  36. LOL, very punny thread, enjoyed reading it! :)) My guess for whatever it's worth is that this belonged to someone who sold eyeglasses and prosthetic eyes back in the day? The Victorian version of a...
  37. Oh this is going to be another stunning brooch once you give it your expert treatment! How do you clean these pieces, I have a few gilt over silver that need a good cleaning.
  38. It's a beautiful pendant/brooch! Have you tried finding an authoritative source on marks and asking? Is there some way of contacting someone from a museum who might know?
  39. Another post and run. :(
  40. Beautiful form!
  41. Fantastic find, Sean! :)
  42. Oh poor thing, how awful for you stuck betwixt and between! Well, hang in there best as you can, June will get here. You'll be in your nest soon!
  43. This piece is so delicious, all those summery citrus colors! I love that it's giant size, that's absolutely as it should be, this is not a timid piece of glass, it speaks its mind. Hah, I keep think...
  44. Thanks for the love, TassieDevil, JImam, racer4four, and skivatinitz. :) You are more than welcome, Karen, I agree it was a bargain. I'm glad if the info was of interest to you, all it did was co...

  48. Thanks for the love, vetraio50, and mikelv85. :)
  49. You know what I love about your vases, Karen? Is that I can look and look and look at them. They engage me, in other words, thoughts and beyond thoughts. So much there there.
