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. Thank you Roy :)
  2. Thanks so much Sean for the "love" and compliment.
  3. 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...
  4. 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 ! :)
  5. Beautiful piece Ho2. :)
  6. 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...
  7. You're welcome Melanie and thanks for the"love". :)
  8. 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...
  9. Nice find Charm I found this.... http://www.pegasusgallery.ca/artist/nicholas_hornyansky.html
  10. OMG Bonnie good for you. We all hope to hit the jackpot like this. Just gorgeous ! :)
  11. Thanks Rick ...I have to admit I like the Roseville better too. However the sheer size of the Weller piece is impressive although the color is a bit bland and I'm not really a fan of pink either.....l...
  12. Thanks Rick....I love it too. It's the largest piece in my collection beside the "wild rose" pedestal. While they don't match I still like them together. :)
  13. I agree with Bonnie Alan...a really beautiful and interesting design for sure. :)
  14. Thanks Karen.....the market for these is pretty flat right now so they really would just sit in the shop forever and risk getting broken from handling. They're too nice for that fate. :)
  15. Thanks so much Sklo...we'll just consider them on loan for the present...lol :)
  16. Thanks Thomas..it's been fun so far. I'll be coming up on a year in April, while my sister is a newbie since November...lol . :)
  17. Thanks Karen ... it does have a nice pebbled texture to the background. This is a rather late piece as Roseville created their last designs in 1953 and sold to the Mosiac Tile Co. the following year.
  18. That really is quite impressive Karen. Tons of technique involved for sure. I agree with your comparison but still beautifully done. What a prize ! :)
  19. Wonderful transformation Roy. The black works well and adds just the right touch ! :)
  20. Thanks for the added info Katherine :)...so very interesting to know what the composition and the scent was like .
  21. It's beautiful Katherine :)...I have one of their bottles in another scent I posted years ago, but mine is missing it's top. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/123540-lucien-lelong-opening-ni...
  22. Thanks so much Kyra. Yes, it is quite a good copy after seeing the original. Ogata Korin's style is timeless. :)
  23. Thank you Val :)
  24. Well that was quick..... I found the exact picture. This would be a 20th century copy and no where near as old as the 17th century original . :)
  25. How very interesting.....Thanks so much for the info mp.kunst. That gives me a place to start my research. I'm not sure where this originally came from though whether it was a department store or gal...
  26. I checked this site Charm because I have an Inuit carving too and it helps track the artist by their disc numbers and names. They're also very good about answering questions when you contact them. I t...
  27. Simply gorgeous...now that's a find to start the New Year off right. ! :)
  28. Thanks so much Thomas. :)
  29. Thanks Scott for the "love" and nice comment. :)
  30. Thanks so much Roy and Scott . :)
  31. Love it Still !...with the firing pin stilt marks and the red clay showing through it could be Peters and Reed established by John D. Peters and Adam Reed in 1899 in Zanesville, Ohio, using the local ...
  32. Thanks One...all is well... and hoping the New Year brings us all some great new finds. :)
  33. Love vintage board games..never heard of this one Rose. I've had to replace all mine which where destroyed when our basement flooded during a big storm in the mid 70's. Getting harder to find the 60's...
  34. That's a "honey" of a find Karen.....bad pun...I know ....lol :)
  35. Thanks so much Gary and for the link too ! :)
  36. This is very cool Roy. I would have bought it in a heartbeat. I'll bet you come across the the proper base someday. You already have the most important parts. Great find ! :)
