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. He's so cool Scott...of course I'm partial to Scottie's. :)
  2. Thanks Malkey...they are fun to look at. I keep silk ivy in them now to avoid the hard water stains they originally had. :)
  3. Hi Parkerhouse. Thanks for the nice comment. Well I'm not sure where I read about the FTD connection in my research. It's been a while since I posted this. I know a lot of floral shops carry Fenton g...
  4. How nice to hear from you gehryfran . So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. I've always loved art pottery and living in Ohio (art pottery central) there is a lot of it. I've acquired a few more ...
  5. It's heavenly Karen with a sense of motion...just like a real planet. :)
  6. It's been a while Scott...nice to see you back. :)
  7. What a great painting "BH"...I photo edited the signature. The date after it looks like 1864. Judging from the peoples clothes and the "Affentheater" poster 19th century seems correct. I can see the s...
  8. That blue and burgundy one definitely catches my eye Karen...love the design ! :)
  9. I'm so sorry to hear about Anne. She put up a brave fight against this terrible disease. Cancer claimed my brother-in-law after his 2 year struggle against colon cancer. We laid him to rest today. May...
  10. I always loved those. Such iconic TV's for the "Atomic Age".
  11. Spectacular !
  12. Wonderful explosion of color and design ! :)
  13. I'll see what I can dig up Roy might take a few days though. :)
  14. Very cool indeed Ho2. The lid looks pretty good actually, but I understand the desire to find the "perfect" one. :)
  15. I agree Bonnie. I've been there too. Right place at the right time. It's a great feeling and yours is a wonderful score ! :)
  16. I might Roy. They're on an old hard drive I don't have hooked up right now. We had member changes over the years from 78-84. Originally it was just a guy singer. We were doing Alan Parsons back then a...
  17. Another blast from my past. I was so happy when I found my copy at a local thrift store to replace my long gone original, "Only The Lonely" was on our set list as well...loved playing that heavily "ph...
  18. Takes me back to my cover band days Roy...The Go's Go's were probably this first songs we learned along with Pat Benatar's. The 80's.... what a great decade for music !
  19. This is wonderful Karen. The vase reminds me of a paper lantern. Interesting how the rings on the pheasant mirror the ones on the lantern. Unusual color too...not quite red or brown . :)
  20. Love the cobalt blue one Karen ...especially for it's form as well as the color. Red is my favorite color most of the time but the shape on the blue one ticks all the boxes for me. Can't get too excit...
  21. Thanks Rick :)
  22. What a great find Ho2...once a lamp always a lamp though. A shame people back in the day didn't know any better than to drill away at these gorgeous pieces. :)
  23. Thanks so much for the "love" and comment Share :)
  24. Thanks so much Tassie for the "love" and compliment. :)
  25. Stunning piece Alan..quite large too ! :)
  26. Thanks Alan and Karen for the "loves" and comments. While I was searching online I was paying particular attention to the pose. You are right Karen there are a lot but the nursing foal and the way the...
  27. I'd say it's a diamond in the rough Greatsnowy and not worthless. You must like it or you wouldn't have bought it. Please don't throw it out and be very careful about trying to clean the canvas with w...
  28. Thanks Thomas :)
  29. It's quite nice Rick even with the little guy toting it in his cart. A great find to mark your return. Welcome back ! :)
  30. Thanks so much for the info Katherine. I've been so busy with the antique store lately that I've let my posts and research fall behind. Now that Summer is here there should be some treasures to be fou...
  31. Love that sinuous panther on the top Karen... Reminds me of my "Panthères De Cartier" Vase I posted ages ago. :)
  32. Agreed... always a delicate topic but of historical importance lest we forget. So I "love" this for your decision to post this Fort. It's something most would never have seen otherwise or even imagi...
  33. Hi Tony here's the link to Katilvik.com for the artist of your sculpture. The symbols are Inuit letters for his first name, although rather crude. The numbers are the disc number for artist Levi Amid...
  34. Beautiful colors and design Karen...love the swirling patterns in the glass. :)
  35. Thanks Kevin.... she was a wonderful find for this particular shop. :)
  36. Yes this was a hard pill to swallow Karen. It does look so real until I took it out of the frame to put it in the new one. I actually damaged it a bit. The art board backing was bowed so I tried to fl...
  37. Thanks Karen...It was pretty hectic last month but everything is flowing along just fine. My sister hasn't been to the shop yet to see everything in person. Her boss took a two week vacation to Thaila...
  38. Thanks Karen. She is a "Rubenesque" beauty. :) . Yes, paying by weight is an odd concept . This is the only Salvation Army store that does that. The other I go to is much larger and has lately become...
  39. Thanks Share.....certain stores I only visit a couple times a month. The method to the madness seems to work. I always find something if I stay away for awhile. I used go to six shops a day and still...
  40. Hi Simon...Nice to see you on CW. Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm glad it has pride of place in your home. Keep up the research. I'm sure someone will eventually be able to solve the mystery bu...
  41. Thanks for the"loves" and comments Thomas, Mani and SpiritBear. I hope it's real too. I bought a different frame so I'll probably open it up and see if anything is written on the picture itself this a...
  42. Thanks so much Kevin..It sure does look like my sketch at least composition wise. I'll have to see if I can find someone to take a look at it. Now I really want to remove it from the frame and check f...
  43. Thank you Roy :)
  44. Thanks so much Sean for the "love" and compliment.
  45. Hi Katherine....my last picture shows the bottom and interior of the somewhat hollow bone it's carved from. It's filled with sponge like residue probably from the marrow. It fits over the peg in the m...
  46. Thanks for the "loves" and comments Kyra and Master. Can't wait to see what my sister found at the auction. There should be plenty to post ! :)
  47. Beautiful piece Ho2. :)
  48. Thanks for all the "loves" and comments everyone....Bonnie, Fort, Katherine, and Thomas. Hopefully my sister had better luck at the auction in New Jersey and it will yield some great finds to post com...
  49. You're welcome Melanie and thanks for the"love". :)
  50. It's a beauty Melanie. I have one just like it I posted 2 years ago and it still had the makers card inside. Same shape and color but a bit bigger. :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/147710...
