  1. I love your collecting kyratango! Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out.
  2. WOW! Amazing find:)
  3. I was thinking it was Zanesville as well, but the glazed base keeps throwing me off.
  4. Thanks for the help Lee, I thought it had a deco style about it but wasn't certain:)
  5. Could it possibly be orange chalcedony?
  6. Could also be citrine, garnet, and topaz. Maybe purchase a jewellers loop to see if there are any inclusions.
  7. Medical insurance has been a disputed topic in our country lately, maybe we should save it just in case:$
  8. Maybe it can be turned into a lamp?:)
  9. Thank vetraio, Mike, and Phil:)
  10. Thank you ticktock time:)
  11. Thanks again idcloisonne, and thanks Sean and kerry for the love:)
  12. The darker stone could be blood stone.
  13. idcloisonne, thanks for the date mark info:) the stone color was pretty difficult to photograph correctly, but is golden brown in color. Maybe citrine, topaz, or quartz? I wish there was a mark for it...
  14. Dear god is she amazing!!!
  15. Looks very Belgian:)
  16. He actually did most of the performance piece on top of the poles that are supporting him:) combining gymnastics and dance.
  17. This is an old college photo, he has mainly worked as an acrobat/dancer with Cirque for the past 10 years. Mostly doing performances in Vegas.
  18. Thank you kyratango:)
  19. Aww thanks Sean:) thank you aghcollect, and nuts for the love.
  20. Found it! An alloy of tin and antimony commonly used for jewelry:)
  21. I think Jwendell might be right about it being an ornamental carriage mount.
  22. It's definitely old, it has great worm eaten holes. The bottom brackets are interesting, they would have to attach to something with peak angles.
  23. Sorry, I wasn't able to find anything but I'll keep looking:)
  24. Yup, Its pot metal:)
  25. I have to admit that I love yours more, always have been a sucker for red. Collectorsweekly.com/stories/101162-favorite-bracelet
  26. I have the same bracelet in brown! It's also marked KO. This ones been driving me nuts:)
  27. Ceck out www.925-1000.com, go to world hallmarks on top, scroll down to Mexican silver marks.
  28. Thanks Mike, the Weller stand was a thrift store find:) and the Monmouth one has been a mystery to me. I haven't been able to find this specific design, and if it wasn't for the mark, I wouldn't have ...
  29. At first glace, I thought it was the roots of an old gnarly tree. What a cool looking piece.
  30. I just realized that my son is making his fill the diaper face in the last pic:)
  31. Thank you Aimathena, aghcollect, Phil and Sean:)

  39. Blood stone?
  40. Is it marked anywhere?
  41. It's amazing how well it transitions into a lovely piece of art.
  42. AnneLanders, I think you're right about the time period, 1920s sound right. The glaze on the base is very typical of Boch Freres, and I think the original Boch Freres stamp is still partially there, b...
  43. I think 1940s Coro.
