  1. I was surprised at the '11' also. I don't understand 'not a rotary'? The dial does not turn? Oh, it's an intercom! That's cool. So it's just designed like a rotary phone...cute.
  2. As always kyra, beautiful job, I love the look of the turquoise with this! It really pops. And look at the dilation of Charlie's eyes!!! Cool!
  3. Hey Mr J, this is a great piece AND post! Very interesting to learn about and I love that this is as small as it is. You know, small but packs a punch! ;)
  4. Love this trunk. It's different than most, the size is great and even the lock is in tact. Wow, 1861! Very cool.
  5. Very pretty pitcher. I think I have a tall one with that design and something like a fishbowl (for lack of knowing what else to call it) I'll have to get it out...the designs are very similar and if...
  6. Wow, it's very pretty and since it cleaned up so well and looks so good, I'm thinking it could be. I would have it checked too. Does a magnet stick to it? That's not always the way to tell, unless ...
  7. This is very pretty! And you have the real trick to finding things on auction...I've always been told to look for things misspelled or not properly described. I'm not as lucky there. Your knowledge...
  8. Very pretty! The handles appear to be mother of pearl. During the day, take one outside and while you are in the shade, look again for markings possibly close to the handle. They may be very faint ...
  9. Someone I know told me that when the mark is 14Kt, that 't' tends to be that it was made in England. I am not positive about that myself, but she swears by it.
  10. I love, love this vase and the pulled feather feature. It's got everything, color, shape everything!
  11. Wow Rose, you did get a great deal on this and it looks so beautiful! Nice goin'!
  12. Yes, all Waterford does have the etching. The trick is to find it! I have a couple pieces left and actually didn't know they were Waterford until I saw a piece like mine on a reputable site so I kne...
  13. It's called a Phoenix Dragon on the sides of your ring. Follow this link to read up on the Phoenix Dragon. Very pretty ring. http://www.thecrabbynook.com/what-does-the-dragon-and-phoenix-symboliz...
  14. Wow, what an amazing view and great trip you had.
  15. I don't recall ever hearing that and I'm so glad I got to see this...I LOVE that motto!!! It's perfect and so true. I'll 'stand' by that ;)
  16. You are so welcome! Happy Valentine's Day Valentino!!! ;)
  17. Oh yea, you are so right about sentimental pieces, they are invaluable!
  18. This is a gorgeous piece Val, you could probably triple that price now...
  19. What I love most about it? The unconventional way you acquired it, of course!!! haha bet that surprised you when you got the answer back!!!
  20. You really did do a nice job!!! I believe they are coral but couldn't tell you from where. Seems to be Hindu-ish/India...not sure. I am impressed though ;)
  21. She's very pretty!
  22. It's pretty, it is missing part of the closure. A straight 'pin' (no point on the tip) with a tiny loop is what holds these closed and it may be brass but I don't know for sure. You could always hav...
  23. I see the mark on the bottom too. You could carefully hold a piece of paper there and run a pencil over it so it shows what numbers they are.
  24. Great find for you! If I had to pick my fav I think it would be the blue marble like ring in the second row and or the top left blue/multi. It's a hard call, they're all nice. Love that box!
  25. These were very popular in the 50's-60's. It's a painting on velvet but not sure what info you are looking for. They were painted by various people, not just one artist. Yours looks to be in very g...
  26. This is absolutely gorgeous!!! I think you did very well ;) That's always a great feeling.
  27. I feel for you because I totally understand, ugh! It's that old saying, the more you see, the less you know??? Is that how it goes?
  28. You sure made a lot of nice choice pieces, that's for sure!
  29. Very pretty. I would guess even a bit older. Somewhere in the 1800's, so really racer's right preWWII.
  30. He's a cutie...same eyes like the old owls from the 70's.
  31. Your kids are so darn cute! I can't believe you did that with Ajax and it didn't remove the paint! Wow, that's good to know, but now that I gave mine away because I couldn't stand the grime, I'll be...
  32. You are very welcome. I just love that art deco era...
  33. This is very pretty!
  34. So pretty! It's funny how I see these now, in fact I saw another one recently that was just like one you had. Which is highly possible now because you have every good looking design out there!!! ;)
  35. This is a very sweet photo Phil. Great post!!!
  36. I was thinking the same thing, it looks so clean inside! That's a really nice clock and I'm with you, I wouldn't touch it. Ya know, with all those gears and whatever they'd have to do, $200.00 reall...
  37. Wow!!! What an amazing piece of artwork! I'm speechless! Gorgeous collection Mani!
  38. OMG, these pieces are amazing, I can't wait to go see the others you posted. And how interesting is that, really, the ivory from them is legal trade? I have to ask, have you ever been on an elephant...
  39. Oh how beautiful! Don't you wish you knew how to do this?!? LOL I was just thinking, I'd probably be walking around like one big scar from burning myself! LOL
  40. haha I have one of those too and couldn't agree with you more. Those plastic ones make me shiver..... I've got 2 old pencil sharpeners too. I'll post them and I love compasses, you know those thing-...
  41. Well I like them ;) Nice to know I was thinking right when I thought 30's, then I read it!
  42. Too cute!!!
  43. It may be aluminum and seems it may be missing a few parts, but that I don't know for sure. My friend has a solid one with the wheels. I'll try and post later, I've got to get the pics from the came...
  44. I love those kind of people! Seems like the stuff is just waiting for you sometimes. You don't see any markings? Can you slide out the lighter, it may be stuck and or may not come out at all but ...
  45. Hi TC! They are all three gorgeous! A very handsome set.
  46. And eyes back at cha!!!
  47. OMG I thought they were real! What does your new little girl think of them??? That must be a kick to watch ;)
  48. I pick up frames too when I have a chance, ya just have to have the right matting...that's it! Nice job!!!
  49. Well done indeed! Comfy too, aren't they?!
  50. Oh how I would love to have that...I'd give it to a friend of mine for sure. I didn't even know these were made but it makes perfect sense. It is beautiful!
