It always amazes me what some people will throw or give away. I'm always on the hunt for glass, pottery, original signed paintings, furniture or whatever catches my eye ! (Read more)

  1. Thanks Ken :)....boxes and boxes
  2. I love grab bags of jewelry Katherine. I've found a few exceptional pieces in them that more than covers my investment too. I have huge bag full of Germany, Hong Kong. Japan ear rings. Most of these s...
  3. Thanks Val :)...... I retired it so it doesn't get used anymore. I think that's why I still have it.
  4. King Arthur or one of the Knights of the Round Table
  5. These are nice DrFluffy :) I like the ring idea too.
  6. Thanks Katherine :) Just when I thought I was over my costume jewelry phase all these showed up. Hooked again !
  7. Thanks Katherine :).... It's hard to choose sometimes but the big clusters always catch my eye as well. I always imagine them being real diamonds...lol.
  8. Thanks Rick and DrFluffy :) I was surprised that we still had it after all this time. I tend to put things in safe places and forget about them...lol
  9. That I couldn't tell you kivatinitz. I don't have a black light handy. I do have a black light poster bulb but that does seem to work in the same way. Now you have me curious. Would there be any signi...
  10. Thanks Roycroft :) .....It makes one fluffy omelet !
  11. Mr. Hobo looks like my Benjamin. We call him " The Highlander " cat because no one knows how old he is. We figure well over 20 !
  12. Beyond beautiful Phil !
  13. This name just rang a bell.... I have this beautiful little piece by Stuart Abelman http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/119782-exquisite-stuart-abelman-iridescent-sw?in=collection-1869
  14. At first glance I thought Tiffany... What an eye catcher Rick :)
  15. Wow DrFluffy I have one of these too with the A & J beater ! What a coincidence :) I'll post it. I never could find out who the maker was. Just Pat. marks on the bottom Maybe Hazel Atlas ??
  16. Thanks DrFluffy :) That seems to be the general consensus. It's mine too !
  17. Thanks SD :)
  18. Thank you John for the "love" and comment . You're welcome :) ....you have some wonderful things.
  19. I love the ruby red SD :) I have a James Hogan Molar Vase http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/111756-whitefriars-crystal-england-clear-lob?in=collection-1869
  20. That's definitely not a beer can.... lol Seriously I love it :)
  21. They are very tactile with their smooth finish.
  22. That must be awesome. We get tiny little toads here in the Springtime after the tadpoles leave the water. The birds love them...poor things.
  23. Thanks Karen :)... I'm really going to try and get the rest of them tomorrow or at least a couple more. Wait till you see those !
  24. Thanks pops52 :) ....ribit
  25. Thank you Virginia :)
  26. Thanks pops52 :)..... you should have seen the ones I left behind !
  27. Hmmm...well the controlled bubbles make me want to say yes along with the size. I don't think it's a Chinese one and Rick didn't say one way or the other. I'm sure someone can tell you eventually when...
  28. Thanks Alan :) I wouldn't be able to tell Murano and others without the labels and people here on CW helping me out with the unlabeled ones. Sometimes they're just beautiful no matter who made them.
  29. Whatever happened Rose we will all miss you. Do keep in touch from time to time.
  30. The is awesome pops52. What a great piece of automotive ad art. I guess you could call it 60's "Deco" :)
  31. Love Murano paper weights Alan. This is a beauty ! :) Here's a few of mine I posted a while back : http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/122487-three-glass-paperweights--2-with-origi?in=collec...
  32. Eye candy but reminds me of real candy looks amazing !
  33. This is drop dead gorgeous !! :)
  34. She's lovely :)
  35. I love the design of these too. I have one of this as well. Unfortunately mine is a reissue. I think from the 80's. Didn't notice the variation of the mark. That was before I knew better :)
  36. Thanks Roycroft .....lol :)
  37. I'll miss you too Rose. Sad to hear this to say the least. It's been great talking with you here on CW. Take care.
  38. Thanks for the suggestion Lisa :).... I live in Ohio and there are a few really good glass restoration places in the Columbus area. They repair but I don't think they create or work glass specifically...
  39. Thank you Rick and Sean for the "loves" and comments. I would say it ranks in my top five greatest finds. :)
  40. Thanks Rose :) These are great links and I definitely saved the pdf. file. I was able to decode my mark from a site I found yesterday. This piece was never meant to be shiny except for the interior of...
  41. Thanks DrFluffy and GeodeJem for the "loves" and comments. :) Thank you Rose :)..... The liner being broken is a bit of a bummer but at least the stopper was still there. The metal is very soft an...
  42. Very pretty Katherine :).....Tallcakes will know for sure.
  43. Thanks blunderbuss2 :)... It's finally Spring here. I've had enough Winter this year to last me a lifetime ! Thanks Rose :)..it was a great day yesterday for a total of eight dollars between the pain...
  44. Thanks pops52 :) Thank you Lisa for the link and the "loves" and comments :)
  45. Very unique SD love the little whales :)
  46. It's spectacular Radegunder :).....You must be on cloud nine !
  47. Simply amazing Phil :) ....I could only hope to display my finds in such style one day.
  48. Why do I have the feeling you'd be first in line Ken...lol
  49. Thanks Kyra :) .... I would think most of the value would be in the mount because the liner is very plain and basic and fits a number of WMF pieces. Then again the whole is greater than the sum of it'...
  50. Thanks Ken ...just gotta find the glass liner !
