I am like a crow - a bit remote to material things, but ready to lunge towards that shiny something to carry off to my nest. I would collect silver, but it would collect me, so I don't. Some of the objects of my admiration include: Martin Niemoller, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, John Henry Cardinal Newman, Belgium, Finland, old Texas, fine calligraphy, Rogier van der Weyden, Hans Memling, and Giotto (Read more)

  13. Arresting trio, inky! Love the 'Watermelon' vase best! The "How did they do that?!!!" dumbfounded utterance is a good sign that you done good. How did they simulate a watermelon rind in glass???? : ))

  15. Marvelous! You were very fortunate to have such a splendid Uncle! : D
  16. Hi, welcome to Collectors Weekly! I can't see the marks on bottom well enough to say for sure, but my hunch is that this was decorated by the prestigious Atelier Camille Le Tallec of Paris, a firm whi...
  17. Hi, Moonstone! I think that this depicts the Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1776-1810), who married Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III and was consort Queen Louise of Prussia. She was regarded as on...
  18. I went back to brush up on 'my Waterloo', as I remembered that the Prussian Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, Fürst von Wahlstatt, Generalfeldmarschall (Field Marshall) of the Prussian Army -- aka "Marsc...

  28. Ah, what a remarkable work of art! I love the shape, and most of all the opalescence. But they are beautifully balanced by gilding and stylish enameling or painting, all of which look to be in pristin...
  29. Hello, dear inky!!! May this find you well and joyful. : ) Don't know how you find all these pairings of art glass vases! Quite striking. What flower to select for these? Tee hee, the flower ha...
  30. Good chance that this is Fritz Bruch, with perhaps a bow to play the violoncello. Here's a link that will detail what was perhaps the occasion for this photo. http://baharris.org/historicpolandspri...

  41. Hello, Petey! Hope your are well! Have never seen anything like this equipment 'unit' before! Wonder if the mask covered the ears, too, or if they were left at least partially 'open'? This entr...

  43. Hi, Deanteaks! I might be able to suggest an avenue for you to get an answer to your questions. I think that at least most of these pieces were made by Hazel Atlas Morgantown, and I think that the pla...
