  1. Looks like Pierrot and Harlequin to me.
  2. Aww, thanks, Sean!
  3. Ha, that's funny. I'm making springtime-themed collections. :)
  4. Thanks, valentino!
  5. I want to agree with Wikipedia here. But when I went to Florida and asked for a parasol, the shop owners looked at me strange. They said, "You mean a beach umbrella?"
  6. Monet would be my vote. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/modern-metallics-monet-costume-jewelry/
  7. Hi Phil, do you know who this character is supposed to be?
  8. They could be dress or fur clips. That's my vote. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/costume-jewelry/dress-fur-clips
  9. What an awesome find! http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/when-the-wild-imagination-of-dr-seuss-fueled-big-oil/
  10. I'm from Oklahoma, and my grandmother had one of these, too.
  11. According to my research, it's really not so bad. Tolerance, equality, charity, some goofy plays ... :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/decoding-secret-societies/
  12. That "G" symbol looks Masonic to me.
  13. Thanks, Mani! We all had a laugh in here in the office. Hunter's hair totally looks like Peter Pan.
  14. Wow. People think my hair is long, and you've got a good two feet on me. I don't think I could afford that much conditioner!
  15. I love them all, but the blue one might be my favorite, because the cascading flowers. I love the neckline on the first one, and the fabric on the third.
  16. Well, some of us had to stay at the office. ;-P
  17. Hello! We recently visited the Joseff vault, and spoke with the family. I don't think we saw your necklace, but I think you'll enjoy this piece. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/lost-hollyw...
  18. Thanks, bratjdd. :)
  19. I know, I'm a total sap! Happy V-Day to you all!
  20. Thanks, Packrat. :)
  21. Great history, Manikin! Interestingly, it seems the "Foo Dog" name came about because Westerners thought the guardian lions resembled Chow Chows or Shih Tzus.
  22. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. :)
  23. Thanks. :)
  24. And the cat's pajamas!
  25. In fact, thanks everyone. San Francisco is a great place for history buffs and antiques lovers. :)
  26. Thanks, scandinavian_pieces!
  27. I recently talked to Ryan Matthew Cohn about the legality and issues around these kind of collectibles, if you're interested. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/mummies-and-monkey-skulls-oddi...
  28. I just saw a couple of these installed at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Oklahoma City. I wonder how many First National Banks there were and how many of these were made. Maybe they had repros of your pie...
  29. Thanks, ladies! We'd love to see more posts from your vintage wardrobes. http://www.facebook.com/CollectorsWeekly/posts/162607057169230
  30. We had the jack-o-lantern. We hung him on the door every year. :) That was the '80s, but I don't know where Mom got it ... Could have been from her mom.
  31. Actually, the green one is my favorite, followed by the blue one, but I would wear them all. Great finds!
  32. That's so funny ... I was just there, peaking in the window this Sunday!
  33. Hi moparnut48, The "clown on globe" mechanical bank was first produced in 1890, but this one might be a reproduction. The reproductions from the 1930s are valuable antiques, but there are also fake...
  34. Hello ninafranco, We can an interview that mentioned this robot. :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/attack-of-the-vintage-toy-robots-justin-pinchot-on-japans-coolest-postwar-export/ ...
  35. I'm having a hard time clicking "like" on this. But, that said, I do find the concept of "memento mori" fascinating, and how it's lacking in current American culture.
  36. Hello, we have that robot featured in this interview. :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/attack-of-the-vintage-toy-robots-justin-pinchot-on-japans-coolest-postwar-export/ This generical...
  37. Maybe he's Krampus the Christmas devil? http://www.krampus.com/index.php
  38. Thank you! Yes, I agree people must have looked amazing. :)
  39. That's really cool. I have no idea what it would sell for, though.
  40. Thanks, vintagemad!
  41. You're she does! I'll let her know. :)
  42. Unfortunately, I didn't have a fabulous Edwardian gown in my closet, so I put on a gothy black dress and stripey tights and went as one of the "Gashlycrumb Tinies." That's me on the right: http:...
  43. It was a blast. :)
  44. Thanks, officialfuel! :) Check out the CW blog later today. I'll be posting more about it.
  45. Huh, I wonder who gave you the first three. ;) Did you get the other 3M games after I gave those to you?
  46. Based on the little spoon, I'd say those are snuff bottles. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/bottles/snuff
  47. Thanks!
  48. I like your Duette dress clip. Coro maybe? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/costume-jewelry/dress-fur-clips
  49. Looks like there are several on eBay right now, offered for $5-$70. Since I got these for free, I feel like I scored no matter. :)
  50. I'm going to guess that the jug indicates she's a follower of Dionysus or Bacchus, known a Maenad or a Bacchante.
