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. I'd love to leave things to all my CW friends but that would be almost impossible since we all live to far away from each other. The shipping alone.....they really need to perfect molecular teleportat...

  4. Awesome as always Kerry ! :)
  5. She's a cutie :)
  6. Thanks robin56...me too ! :)
  7. They're all very nice Melaniej :)... Here's what I know. The rectangle with the line through it in a mark is part of the characters for "Made in China" or China Made. These are modern Longquan style c...
  8. Thank you Kalliequo :).... this is good to know. When I look these pieces up online sometimes the attributions are wrong on more than one count. Always great to get the correct information.
  9. Thanks charmsomeone and Tony :)
  10. Thanks for the "love" Tony :)
  11. Thanks Tony :)

  17. Thanks Karen and Sklo :),,,when it rains it pours !
  18. Thanks for the "loves" Trey, Caper, Sklo and Kivatinitz :)
  19. Thanks Karen :).... considering it has only two christmasy colors, unless you count the black details. Can't get much less then that...lol. It tells a story I think but I wonder what ???
  20. Thanks for the "loves" Ivonne, Smiata, and Agh :)
  21. Thank you for the "loves" Ivonne. Smiata, Agh and Kevin :)
  22. Thanks as well to Kevin..Blunder and Kerry :)
  23. Thank you Katherine :)
  24. O.0.... eye candy for sure......Gorgeous !
  25. Beautiful example Karen :)...Fun and so much more interesting to look at. I have a rather drab one in an olive bronze color with nothing in the base but a single air bubble. I've never seen one like t...
  26. You're welcome Kevin :).... I've been checking around and they're calling these pieces onyx, jasper, or agate sterling bird figures. Lots of forms. Herons, chickens, road runners, peacocks etc. Most s...
  27. Here you go Ho2 :)....Whenever you see the rectangle with the line through it in a mark that's "Made in China" or China Made. These are modern Longquan style celadon pieces. I have a few as well. Here...
  28. Thanks Val :) ..... I think so too. We had gone out west for a family vacation in 1970 and I saw a lot of Native American and Mexican jewelry. We stopped at this bottomless gorge close to the Grand C...
  29. Wow :)...I love mounted vases. It adds that extra panache to something that's already exquisite !
  30. Hi Fran and thanks :)...they sure are and it's happened more than once. I'll will make a few passes because pieces like this always seem to get by me on the first run. Middle shelves aren't at eye lev...
  31. Thanks so much Katherine :)
  32. Thank you Katherine :)
  33. Thanks Karen... you're right I do. There's no place like home...no place like home. Oh darn it doesn't work without the ruby slippers...lol :) By the way I think the aventurine vase I posted yester...
  34. I've been looking into this one a little more and it seems to match Italian maker V. Nason and Co. "Avventurina " line. A few on Ebay in smaller sizes but same colors and similar shapes. http://www...
  35. Thanks kivatinitz :)... a masterpiece sounds pretty good to me !
  36. Now that's just plain gorgeous !! :)
  37. Pretty cool Tony :)...I think it's an unusual type of combination lock. The dots look like they represent numbers or sequences. The four leaf clover on the knob might be a clue too.
  38. You are spot on ho2...it is Brush McCoy form #745 in a blue art vellum glaze. I forgot I have a green art vellum glaze fawn vase #716 I posted a while back.It's not signed either. I found your form on...
  39. He's great ho2 :) being a Scottie owner I collect anything I see when it comes to my little girl. I've got a McCoy planter along with ceramic, and glass ones of all kinds.
  40. Thanks blunderbuss2 :)
  41. Thanks Caperkid :)
  42. Yep, I saw that too Ken. However I think that's a bit optimistic. These are highly sought after but two to four hundred is more realistic. I saw one appraised for that sell for only eighty dollars. It...
  43. Thanks Karen....you know your stuff so I'm pleased with your assessment and that we concur....lol :)
  44. I remember these my mom collected owls for years :) Sorry don't know much about them either.
  45. Thanks Karen and Caperkid for the love and comments. I don't know for sure Karen...careless welding sparks or something. You guys have the City of Adelaide in your care. Hope that goes well. :)
  46. What A TV lamp haul !...Good for you. They are all awesome :)
  47. Love TV lamps Alan I have a Matador one I posted a while back. Don't sit to close to the TV in the dark or you'll ruin your eyes ... hence the need for TV lamps or so they thought. :) http://www.co...
  48. What every it is... It is stunning ho2 :) Love the design. Wish nldionne was still around she would know. I'm thinking RRP (Robinson Ransbottom) since there's no mark, but it could be one of several O...
  49. These are beautiful Karen :)...I have a few myself. They're usually ID'd as vintage 70's-90's Imari Ware from Japan. Toyo and Art Mark are two companies I know of. They used a variety of makers and ar...
  50. Stunning in it's simplicity ! :)
