  1. Well ladies... "great minds do think alike "...lol :)
  2. I guess I realized the same thing Katherine as do most collector's. Where do you cross or draw the line between collecting and hoarding. What's the point of having all these beautiful things and not b...
  3. Thank you Kivatinitz :)
  4. Beautiful ! I detect a bit of Greek influence here...he's a hoot :)
  5. Thanks Karen...he is a sweet little fellow :)
  6. Thanks Katherine :)....I had been wondering as well . The bulk of her work shown on Etsy uses an encaustic (wax) technique and are rather small in size. Of course anything is possible. maybe this was ...
  7. Now I know why I have such a hard time finding pieces for my collection...they're all her ...lol. Amazing display ! :)
  8. I agree with MFT and Val....OMG !! How I love art pottery. What an awesome collection ! :)
  9. Breathtaking display ! :)
  10. Love PW's as well...nice collection. There's just something about these miniature works of art that make them so appealing. :)
  11. Thanks One ....It was a bargain considering the value so I couldn't pass it by...plus I love Roseville :)
  12. Thanks One..me too. I thought the tree mark would be easy to ID..wrong..lol :)
  13. Thanks Celine for the "love" and all the info. :)
  14. Thank you One :)
  15. Thanks for the "love"and comment One :)...I'm still amazed it was donated, processed and put out on the floor without being broken . I have to admit Saver's is a bit more careful than most of the GW'...
  16. Thanks for the "loves" and comments everyone. :)
  17. So hard to click the "love" for this one but still a little love and condolence for such an unfortunate disaster Ivonne. People who don't know how to pack fragile items have no business selling them o...
  18. Thanks Phil :) They definitely get around on their little "Happy Feet" :)
  19. Toot..Toot...Thanks Thomas :)
  20. I agree Karen it is an attractive piece of glass with an interesting design.Without the label it could have been mistaken for anything else but Chinese. :)
  21. Wonderful post card Alan....so glad to hear you are feeling better. It's amazing the restorative powers of the human body when given a chance. Best of luck to you and stay well my friend :) -Mike-
  22. Thanks Karen...I think it's a keeper. There's a few pieces sitting around the co-op and they are over priced and just don't sell. I fear my White Rose pedestal might get damaged at the shop by careles...
  23. Thanks so much Ken for the "love" and comment :)
  24. Thanks for the "love" Windwalker :)
  25. Thanks Nevada...yep you have auction prices which tend to be lower and then retail which is higher so you're looking at say between 180 to 240. I've seen some sites selling for higher but Roseville do...
  26. lol..Thanks Thomas :)
  27. Thank you Alfredo...Her name is Mitzi and she's my baby girl but she's getting up in years. She'll be 12 on June first. :)
  28. You're welcome Tanya :)
  29. Thanks Leah, Wind, and Aura for the 'Loves" :)
  30. It's another possibility Dave. I don't think there was a Karen listed on Askart's site. I'll have to check into that..Thanks so much :)
  31. Thanks for the "loves" Thomas and Kevin :)
  32. Thanks Wind, Thomas, and Nevada for the "loves" and comments....That fancy mark on the bottom has to belong to a very talented someone...lol :)
  33. You're welcome Ian and thanks for the confirmation. Oh I know all too well the amount of misinformation out there when it comes to Czech glass. That's why it's so nice to have our glass people here on...
  34. Thanks Ian.....as long as this is antique Czech glass and isn't a Chinese modern piece I'm perfectly happy with this purchase. The signature seems more of an interesting mystery than a indicator of w...
  35. Well this looks a bit familiar..:) Love this shape too. So would mine date to the same period even with the different shape ??
  36. Thanks for the input Ian. I'll take a closeup picture of the sig and insert it into the last picture. :)
  37. Thanks Roy..I try..even if this turns out to be a modern piece it's still rather nice.
  38. Thank you Roy..it is a great color. :)
  39. Thanks so much Windwalker :)
  40. Well ...I loved the 80's..mostly because I was younger then,,,lol. I'm pretty sure he did some of Duran Duran's album covers. "Rio" come to mind or at least in his style.
  41. You're welcome mtnbiker .... It's nice to see this post is still helping people after all these years ! :)
  42. I'm thinking since it's Sunbeam it might be part of one of their electrical devices . Like a liner that fits into something or maybe even a special bowl for one of their large mixers ?? :)
  43. Nldionne !! my goodness it's been a while..how have you been ? Still collecting art pottery ?? Very nice little vase. Mt. Washington ...maybe but could be Bristol glass or even Moser or some other Boh...
  44. Just lovely Katherine :)...I've not been finding much in the jewelry department myself lately, but I've had my share of bargains in the past. :)
  45. Thanks Roy. :)
  46. Thanks Sean :)
  47. Thanks Karen...I agree..it works really well with the satiny graphite color glaze of the body. Love the combed grooves. They add design and texture too.:)
  48. Thanks Tony...it was an amazing find for just a quick spur of the moment stop. :)
  49. Thanks so much Nevada...Scandy pottery is not my forte but I did recognize the quality and beauty. :)
  50. He's wonderful One..never seen anything like him. Reminds me of my "Candlewick" glass pieces with all the little beads and bubbles. :)
