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 so much Tassie for the "love" and compliment. :)
  2. Stunning piece Alan..quite large too ! :)
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. Thanks Thomas :)
  6. It's quite nice Rick even with the little guy toting it in his cart. A great find to mark your return. Welcome back ! :)
  7. 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...
  8. Love that sinuous panther on the top Karen... Reminds me of my "Panthères De Cartier" Vase I posted ages ago. :)
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Beautiful colors and design Karen...love the swirling patterns in the glass. :)
  12. Thanks Kevin.... she was a wonderful find for this particular shop. :)
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. Congrats Thomas on your 500th post. Yes, CW does seems to expand us beyond our collecting comfort zone. Keep those great posts coming and you'll be at 1000 before you know it. :) -Mike-
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
  21. Thank you Roy :)
  22. Thanks so much Sean for the "love" and compliment.
  23. 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...
  24. 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 ! :)
  25. Beautiful piece Ho2. :)
  26. 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...
  27. You're welcome Melanie and thanks for the"love". :)
  28. 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...
  29. Nice find Charm I found this.... http://www.pegasusgallery.ca/artist/nicholas_hornyansky.html
  30. OMG Bonnie good for you. We all hope to hit the jackpot like this. Just gorgeous ! :)
  31. 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...
  32. 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. :)
  33. I agree with Bonnie Alan...a really beautiful and interesting design for sure. :)
  34. 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. :)
  35. Thanks so much Sklo...we'll just consider them on loan for the present...lol :)
  36. 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 . :)
  37. 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.
  38. That really is quite impressive Karen. Tons of technique involved for sure. I agree with your comparison but still beautifully done. What a prize ! :)
  39. Wonderful transformation Roy. The black works well and adds just the right touch ! :)
  40. Thanks for the added info Katherine :)...so very interesting to know what the composition and the scent was like .
  41. 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...
  42. Thanks so much Kyra. Yes, it is quite a good copy after seeing the original. Ogata Korin's style is timeless. :)
  43. Thank you Val :)
  44. 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 . :)
  45. 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...
  46. 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...
  47. Simply gorgeous...now that's a find to start the New Year off right. ! :)
  48. Thanks so much Thomas. :)
  49. Thanks Scott for the "love" and nice comment. :)
  50. Thanks so much Roy and Scott . :)
