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. Very art nouveau and very pretty :)
  2. Thanks Val...hope you had a great time :)
  3. My favorite of all Blondie's hits...There's a video on You Tube about how innovative and technically difficult (not by today's standards though) it was too record this song at the time. Something I ne...
  4. Always love the peacock theme on their porcelain and other objet D'art. This is really beautiful Karen :)
  5. Pic three is a great car Alan....you can't go wrong with the red two-tone paint. :)
  6. Thanks so much for the "loves" everyone and nice comments Karen, Bonnie, Pops, Tassie, Nice, Fort, and Scott. ...... it is a pretty little ring although I don't imagine it's terribly valuable. The $12...
  7. Thanks One :)
  8. A very interesting and special piece...lucky you ! :)
  9. Thanks One :)... I agree they are different. Roseville does have it's own unique look.
  10. Thanks Rick :)....and it's incredible that nothing on it was chipped or broken.
  11. Thanks for the "love" and nice comment Sean :)
  12. These are all so awesome and to have the original boxes as well. A toy collector's dream ! :)
  13. Thanks Karen....it is heavy 158 grams or just about 6 0z. So over a quarter but not quite half a pound.
  14. Thanks Inky....happy yes...at least in this version but poor George himself didn't fair so well at the hands of the Romans...but that's another story. :)
  15. Thanks Pops :)
  16. Thanks Thomas for the "love" and nice comment :)
  17. Thanks Gillian,,,I find most art work signed or not is very hard to track down. Probably a very talented amateur just not well known. :)
  18. Thanks so much Alan... I love when these unexpected treasures that just pop up every once and a great while. As a collector that's the best type of find. :)
  19. WOW !...that is spectacular Ho2... Love the use of materials and the design ! :)
  20. Thanks Ken...I like the basket too but actually the little flower arranger is a bit more unusual and interesting. :)
  21. Love the glaze ! :)
  22. Sweet ride....Awesome as always Pops. :)
  23. Very elegant Ken :)
  24. Thanks so much Phil for the "love" and compliment. :)
  25. lol...me neither Sklo Thanks for the "love" and comment. :)
  26. Agree...Gorgeous car Ho2..I believe it's a 1959 Buick Electra convertible. :)
  27. Thanks for the "love" and nice comment Tassie :)
  28. Thanks Karen ....Roseville is very out of fashion with the younger crowd right now. It just sits on the shelves at the antique store with the high prices from twenty years ago. I've always loved it so...
  29. Thanks Scott :) ...first in the door this morning. The right place at the right time too. I doubt they would have lasted long at the prices they were marked.
  30. Thanks so much TimeTraveller. :)
  31. Thanks Martika ...I really didn't even have to go anywhere else after this. Couldn't wait to get home..lol :)
  32. Me too and Amen to that Bonnie but by the same token they will price other pieces way to high that have no value. Go figure...lol :)
  33. I have the exact same two Alan what a coincidence ! Kind of think of them as mother and baby. :)
  34. Thanks Nice :)
  35. Thanks Kyra....it's at the co-op now but so far no takers. Probably time to bring it back home and just hang on to it. :)
  36. Thanks Pops :)... Three years of collecting and posting on CW and counting !
  37. Thanks Tcjones1....not at all. I usually find all my treasures at the thrift stores (Goodwill and such). This came from a really nice Salvation Army Family Thrift store that opened in our area about 2...
  38. Thank you Pops...I'll have to see what I can do about that awful pic though.:)
  39. I forgot I had posted this ...so long ago...lol Thanks Pops ! :)
  40. This is so cool Pops. I did something similar with a smaller Titanic model. Cut it in half. Melted the decks to collapse them. Then painted it to look like the wreck. I have a Golden Hawk die cast as ...
  41. Ah yes ...I remember 50 as if it were only 11 years ago...lol. Happy Birthday Thomas ! :)
  42. It is a beauty Ken :)...looks like a mis-stamped or worn 18K mark and then something illegible after that to me.
  43. Thanks AmatoorPikr :)
  44. Thanks Alan :)
  45. Thanks Karen.... it is a very tactile piece with it's candy coating. :)
  46. Thanks Karen...if anyone would I'm sure it would be Ken...lol . Things are fine. A bit of a slow down but that's to be expected in the Summer. Just the usual ebb and flow of the retail here. :)
  47. I was thinking that myself Kevin . I still have the one in the link below too that may be theirs. I remembered you thought the same for that piece as well. :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stori...
  48. Just gorgeous Rick ! :)
  49. Thanks so much Scott. The glaze reminds me of non pareils candies. :)
  50. Thanks Alan for the "love" and the nice compliment :)
  51. See more
