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. It's always hard to watch our parents age and become shadows of their former selves Nevada. I understand how you feel and what your mom is going through. My mom developed temporal lobe epilepsy about ...
  2. Nice ear rings :)...This is the only other jewelry I've seen by them. I have a Henkel and Grosse serpent necklace. It's a bit damaged because a couple of the articulated links broke and they soldered ...
  3. Beautiful coral color. So delicate. :)
  4. I like "Stumpy" the bull the best...lol :)
  5. Thanks Pops ....wouldn't you love to have the real thing though ? These are easily million dollar cars in pristine condition. A little deep for my pockets...lol :)
  6. So nice to see you back Scott and in tip top shape ! :)
  7. Thanks pops :)......it was a once in a lifetime find for sure !
  8. Very nice Pops ....I still have my 14K gold Gorham one. Still one of my best finds ever. :)
  9. Great find Karen....welcome to the club...what an interesting design and color ! :)
  10. One of the classic greats from the golden age of Hollywood. They just don't make movies like this anymore. Mr. Douglas will be an amazing 100 years old this December too !!
  11. Thank you Sklo :)
  12. Love the first picture. Maroon looks great on any classic "Woody". :)
  13. Thanks Karen ..it is a stunning piece of glass work. I've never seen anything this large either. Most of his work is the standard round or egg shaped pieces. :)
  14. Thanks so much OGF ....Yes so far so good :)
  15. Saw that on the news this morning Katherine. We even get 3-5's here in Ohio occasionally . I'm sure it's nothing for most who live in Cally. :)
  16. Wow that's a beauty Thomas...wish I had found it ! :)
  17. LOL...not even auto-tune would help my voice Thomas...but I'm honored :)
  18. Hi Pops and thanks...yes it has....more than I care to mention ...lol. A lot has moved on to new homes through my booth at the co-op. It was time to downsize. :)
  19. Wow..his animals are really nice and seem to be his forte. I should have looked into this more than I did. Thanks for the link Kevin. :)
  20. How interesting Kevin. Thanks for reviving this old post. I'm not even sure where I put this piece. Kudos to finderskeypurs for his info at least I found out about the artist. :)
  21. Looks like the splash you get from tossing a pebble into a calm pool of water. :)
  22. Great case and color...love the graphics on the sides :)
  23. Hi Pops.... nice to see you again :).... Incredible time piece and design !
  24. Thanks Karen :) ..it looks quite similar to a lot of Victorian Bride's bowls I've seen online. Not quite as fancy and a lot were in silver and plated mounts. Either as baskets or pedestal centerpieces.
  25. Thank you Jean123 :)
  26. Thanks Katherine....it's gone on to a new owner now. My professor friend bought it about two weeks ago from my booth at the co-op. He loved it too ! :)
  27. Thanks Sklo..it sure is :)
  28. Hi Rose :)...yes I did see that too...very modern glass. So maybe it's not even Bennett. Those last two letters look like a "th" to me or maybe even "ty" . A bit of a puzzler.
  29. Hi Roy..it's going extremely well. We have one really good customer who is into Asian art so I'm his new best friend. A retired Asian language professor from the college. He grabs everything as soon a...
  30. These are wonderful.....How great to find a match to your single piece. My guy is sitting on a treasure chest that is cedar lined. The top opens but one of the hinges is broken and missing it's pin. I...
  31. Thanks Jean 123 for the links....The storm one is my favorite too...although the seascape is quite nice as well :)
  32. I guess I did post mine about two years ago. I ID'd it as Red Wing Pottery though.The lid would have been optional :) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/119530-redwing-pottery-565-coffee-serve...
  33. I would say it's decorative Thomas. Looks like a copy of an Italian print. Probably an urn from a detail in a Roman fresco. Maybe from the ones discovered at Pompeii. :)
  34. Love the color :).....I think I have one too somewhere but I also have something similar in white but it's by Taylor Smith and Taylor. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/95984-mid-century-whi...
  35. Well there is nothing nauseating about the wonderful scent of Raspberry Jello powder as the boiling water hits it and fills the room with that luscious scent ! :)
  36. Thanks Davy I did actually see this article while looking up Reinad history but didn't read it completely. The other sites used the words "seems to have" to express some doubt but this article really ...
  37. Thanks Martika :)
  38. Thanks Celiene..it is a dazzler..lol :)
  39. Thanks so much Sean :)
  40. I'm with you guys...I've been trying for 3 years to find my grail. Maybe tomorrow or the next day...or the next day...or the next day...lol :)
  41. Thanks Kyra....it sure is..lol :)
  42. Looks like melted ribbon candy or taffy. Hideously delicious ! :)
  43. Thanks Katherine, Karen and Val :) It was a slow day and the only sales were mine and Joyce the other vendor working yesterday. When days are slow like that it's fun to dig around and look for buried ...
  44. Thanks Nevada :) it is an impressive bit of "bling" at 2" in diameter. :)
  45. Wow these are incredible !
  46. We all have our "stacks" Alan even art museums and libraries. What used to be my bedroom has become a treasure vault much like this. Now if I were just motivated to organize it a bit more it wouldn't ...
  47. Eisenberg...very classy indeed Val. It almost looks like real citrines. Seems rather rare to see a color when their "Ice" was so popular. :)
  48. Unbelievably gorgeous ! :)
  49. Thanks Val :)....oh I will, in fact I brought my White Rose pedestal home from my co-op booth. It just will never sell and I didn't want to risk any damage from being picked up and looked at all day l...
  50. Beautiful..very delicate and shell like. Can't imagine the horror of snuffing out butts in it. However some tempting sweets of your choice would be very nice. :)
