  1. No appraisals on CW....
  2. Thank you Vintagelamp and Alwayssearching for your awsome comments and loving both beetle and Charlie, he would have loved meeting you...
  3. Malkey, your collection is amazing, and I love seeing the grouping how you display it :-) I can't believe how anybody could be rude or negative about that!!! Keep on sharing all your finds :-)
  4. The best ashtrays ever! I use a modern one... will have to hunt for one as cute as yours :-))
  5. I bet for her it was a very solemn moment to be standing for a photographer! Well observed , Gillian, for her eyebrow "amputated", lol! Ha ha! Practical, hygienic, natural needs question... they...
  6. Thanks for your interest, Jean! No answers either from 925-1000 forum, Pforzheim schmuck museum nor the German forum :-/ I'm currently searching among old german jewellery makers advertisements...
  7. Thanks for the base's pic :-) It doesn't look like terracotta... As Phil said, bronze should have crispier details... Very mysterious material to identify only from pic! Hopefully someone will be ...
  8. Judy, so true!!! At least, the new link shows the first in gold I ever seen! Plus, a relation with Murrle Bennet... but who made it for who??? Jean, thanks for your suggestion, I already explored ...
  9. Incredible... I found a same shape locket, 9ct gold and pearls, with Murrle Bennet mark AND THE URN MARK!!! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351926279654 Mystery goes thicker ;-)
  10. Welcome to CW ! Nice heirloom! Perhaps patinated terracota, a pic of the base may tell :-) By the edit item button, remove last pic, save item, then add the base and save again.
  11. Thanks Ho2cultcha, but as they don't show the under... I don't know if your is by Torre & Tagus... Nicefice, many thanks for your lovely visit and cool comment :-)) Gary... no roses yet... even...
  12. What a superb tiara bangle, Jean! Rare shape, and so gracious on the wrist. The box is certainly original, it is very difficult to match a box for such a high shape. A link to another tiara bang...
  13. Thanks for the thanks, LovelyPat! I think you can mark it as solved :-)
  14. Very similar arrangement of tubes: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Torre-Tagus-Eva-Multi-Tube-Vase-White-Rectangulur-Narrow/124403205
  15. Lisa, thanks! Even empty, it is sculptural :-) Mani, I knew it was your taste too ;-) Thank you, xoxo Others: https://collettandholder.com/products/ceramic-8-tube-bud-vase-pastel https://w...
  16. Great solve Tallcakes! It seems "humane" is in the intention... I guess getting the bird to say AAAh is easier than getting a B... ;-D
  17. Here is mine: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/219422-for-ho2cultcha-my-organic-tubes-set-of#comment-1039932 Yours seems really older and different making! Surely a designer piece :-)

  20. Yummm, :-P https://www.australiantropicalfoods.com/index.php/australian-seafood/moreton-bay-bug/
  21. Another bee from an Indian seller with beautiful pic.... buyer will be deceived too :-( Here is the kind of pic which made me buy mine...: http://www.ebay.com/itm/142270785800
  22. No, different base, I'll post it tomorrow for you to see :-)
  23. Judy, Marga, Wandlessfairy, thank you for all your compliments and warm comments! Love back to you :-) Nicefice, thanks for your cool comment ;-)) And for the significance of the M, I thought it ...
  24. Welcome to CW :-) I think all jewellery friends here are looking forward to see your further posts!
  25. A cutie waabbits for Scott ;-) Nice, pretty, quality!
  26. Fluorite? Blue John? Amethyst? Can't say, with the blue glare of the pics... The mount have an exotic feeling on it...
  27. Haha! They fit in the more than 4 legs category, and I wouldn't even touch a living shrimp :-P But I must say if I encounter a cooked lobster, I won't avoid it... And that is COSTLY here!
  28. Ooh! I love these chunky oblong links!
  29. http://jeux-anciens.fr/categorie/arbaletes--arcs--flechettes/ https://www.etsy.com/listing/223199803/vintage-feather-wood-darts-set-of-6
  30. Cool, as Bijou said! Love the turquoise color :-) It is modern, I bought one in 2007, white with only 7 tubes, at a florist shop with gerberas stems. No sticker for the maker either...
  31. Pretty group! I'm with Pebble for aventurine :-)
  32. Absolutely superb! Efesgirl is right, labradorite! :-)
  33. Simple and beautiful, jadeite is the star of the scene :-)
  34. Sweet guy!
  35. Insects: 6 legs----> run Arachnids: 8 legs-----> run and scream! Myriapods: many legs!----> don't count... scream and run!!! Birds, humans: 2 legs----> if not frienly run! ;-)))))
  36. Lol! I'm even afraid of... butterflies, and run and scream if a living one lands on me! In fact, I have "morethan4leggedcritterphobia" Ô..Ô
  37. Doesn't matter for me, if the spider is precious :-) Otherwise.... run and scream!!!
  38. Superb, as all your pieces :-)
  39. An absolute WOW sculpture! She is sitting gloriously in your superb room, Phil :-)
  40. Oops, "he is" not his...
  41. His cute!!! Maybe grumpy to have been told "don't move!"... :-D
  42. Strange... it was not correct in these times for a n adult woman to have her hair undone (free on the shoulder). On other side, such a thick dark veil doesn't match her dress. I'd go for hair, perha...
  43. So nice! The box is art too, as Japanese are used to do :-) Fitting in the hand, you could use it as a hand cooler as Victorians did! Hand cooler - Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_...
  44. Ooh... Double vie... Mr Hubbard was quite a rascal! ;-D Thanks Gary for the post and story!
  45. Bug... Bug? Buuug!!! Of course I love it! ;-D
  46. I do have some imagination... but surely not as sparkling and brillant than yours (thanks to your Nene, and her wall training!)... Yes, time to see this gorgeous Native now... Hugh Lois! ;-D
  47. Lois! The beautiful indian left in on your pillow in remembrance of a torrid night... ;-)
  48. Wabbits ears again, Scott... As you said, Karen, very tactile it seems! Love the teal color too :-D
  49. Haha Scott, the bell has rabbit's ears ;-)))) Karen, I love them all, with a plus for the cube :-)
  50. Ooh! Lovely! Made to look like stingray skin/galuchat! The mark is for ASIATIDES, a private shop for decoration pieces. Google images for "Asiatides grenouille japon galuchat vert". :-) An...
