  1. Peasejeaan55, your cigarette case is splendid. The "textured finish" is all hand hammered silver and a favorite of mine. Originally, there was an elastic band that ran across and hooked on each si...
  2. Call and ask someone at Lillian Nassau in New York, the premier dealer of Tiffany lamps.
  3. Sean, you did yourself proud! I really love the design of this period.
  4. I agree, fhrjr2 and surfdub66, since many of these walking stick handles were rolled gold (thin sheets of less than 5% gold that is fused to a base metal) or gold-filled. Sometimes the ones that are g...
  5. Hi, scottvez, nice to see you. From a quick search: A very interesting publication, with photos of a couple of dignitaries from this period, on the history of photography in the Phillipines. It be...
  6. Katzl, I really love fruit motifs --- and fruit :-) --- and your reticulated compote is beautiful. maryh1956, great information and to point out the distinction of "OEPIAG" in the mark. Worthpo...
  7. Wonderful and by the famous artist/illustrator, Charles Dana Gibson (the signature across the lower center). It is titled "A Good Game for Two." I haven't had time to determine the "E. P. Day(?)" You ...
  8. A lovely pastoral landscape, PatSea. It looks like Zubek to me and must be a European artist since the letter "Z" has a crossbar through the middle. I didn't find anything for a listed artist by this ...
  9. robin56, you have a delightful print of Count Almaviva, "le comte" or "the Count," from the opera "The Barber of Seville" by Gioachino Rossini. The other legend on the print, "mes voeux ceux d'un simp...
  10. sargeguy, I was amused by photo 2 showing the "wrong" and right" way to use the telephone. It seems the focus was on ergonomics and safety but I'm not sure either is the solution to both. You have ...
  11. Mike, a wonderful iconic subject for your collection. Your "particular" photogravure was not in the book "A Christmas Story." You didn't indicate the size so I am guessing the following, based on the ...
  12. Betty1978, a very beautiful and avante garde necklace, great purchase. Since you live in Paris, there is a copy of Bengel's book "Jacob Bengel: Art Deco Jewelry/ Art Deco Schmuck," available in Th...
  13. Wow, austrohungaro, that table is a hard act to follow! It certainly "does" deserve that place of prominence in your entrance hall. You and Carlos are amazing, in addition to your extraordinary collec...
  14. Very nice and great polishing job, CindB. This is called an entrée dish and yours has a gadroon border. Enjoy using it, just do not use it for food that has salt or it will eventually pit the plating.
  15. Hi, agram. I love your very unusual piece. My first impression is that she is Minerva but am probably wrong since my first impression is always that of Minerva. ;-) From Wiki: http://en.wikiped...
  16. Your print is AFTER the beautiful painting by Jacques-Louis David (France, 1748-1825), "Portrait of Madame Récamier," that is in the Louvre. Courtesy Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portr...
  17. nutsabotas6 solved this and posted an answer to your other post in "pins and brooches" since that post shows the mark. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/151125-trifari-pin--help-identify?in=act...
  18. my pleasure. If it is a cake stand that you really want, here is a NEW tortoise shell glass "Cake Stand." http://www.save-on-crafts.com/cakestand2.html
  19. The photo is so small and I cannot see the face. Regardless, IMO the signature does not have any resemblance to any of those represented on the net as that of Ty Cobb. From Google images: https:/...
  20. Don't think so, racer4four, looks like a print. Otherwise, it would be signed within the watercolor, not on the border of the paper.
  21. surfdub66, you nailed it. That is why it is referred to as "tortoise shell glassware." From Google images: https://www.google.com/search?q=tortoiseshell+glass&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=u8j4VNWv...
  22. vl, I must say, this is a huge departure from what usually "speaks to you." I didn't see the mate you posted but when I first saw this one, I thought it was painted on black velvet so I was looking fo...
  23. racer4four, how clever and wise of your grandfather to set them into the table so as not to destroy the integrity of those beautiful tiles. Your table is already priceless ;-) and to add to the va...
  24. austrohungaro, fabulous and fun table and and loved seeing it in the room. Bravo to Carlos for keeping the tile floor. In addition to "Atomic Age" furniture (as antiquerose said), I have seen simil...
  25. My pleasure, Alan.
  26. GTMOOM: Perfect photo, thanks. PrenticeNet: You just pointed out a critical element of the glass decoration that I did not see, thank you. I had focused on the original second photo and failed to...
  27. N.B. to PrenticeNet: I had a question about the coat of arms and you are one of the Prentice family experts --- I enjoyed reading your website. From what I can see on the coat of arms in the secon...
  28. PrenticeNet, this should not be a "damper" to GTMOOM since the crest provides a provenance. Bravo and thank you for contacting Moser and obtaining a definitive answer. Regardless of my total lack of k...
  29. lawlass, an exception gift and tea service and is the "Medallion" pattern by Reed and Barton. "Medallion" is a general category of antique silver, silverplate, and coin silver by many makers and very ...
  30. kyratango, I agree, and to me the shape lends itself to be a sash pin. Courtesy of Morning Glory Antiques & Jewelry. http://www.morninggloryantiques.com/collectSash.html
  31. kyrantango, thanks, but I have seen her often since Saint Fabiola is the subject of numerous portrait miniatures and brooches in enamel, which I know interests you. From Google images: http://tinyu...
  32. The pleasure was all mine, VT, since I got to see your gorgeous plates with such exceptional dogs.
  33. Hi, Alan, a lovely painting, that is after the portrait of "Saint Fabiola" by Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905). Courtesy of Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Fabiola An interesting pr...
  34. Hi, VT, your Doulton cabinet plates are exquisite and difficult to find. You have such an eclectic, beautiful collection. Since I do this all the time, I am sure that you were thinking one thing, b...
  35. GTMOOM, magnificent! Based on everyone's expertise (since I know nothing about glass), here are VERY similar goblets with the ruby-colored panels, shown on Devonia Antiques. Look at all the photos...
  36. 1. Your welcome (?) for the database information. 2. Your post no. 13 above: "loveyardsales, 4 hours ago Hey kerry10456 did you get to see my last post? The mark on the inside back cover is 1800...

  39. Nice postcard but I am sure you are not aware that "items for sale" are not allowed on the Collectors Weekly "Show & Tell" board. From Collectors Weekly "What’s appropriate on Show and Tell?" http...
  40. Thanks, sean. More on Dugan and comparing Dugan to Czech glass, from what I think is the site written by CW's "alfredo" (sorry if I am incorrect; I don't look at glass often, may be confused, and I ce...
  41. Your vase is lovely and great identification research. I know nothing about glass but here is a comprehensive article, "Dugan Art Glass," by Alfredo Villanueva Collado, PhD, and Nancy Krupp, from Davi...
  42. James, I love that you have a "portrait" of Teddy Vincent. I hope you find your way back here so Vincent II will get a wonderful new home. noob, it is so generous of you to take the time to locate ...
  43. Hi, kivatinitz, and thank you. I always enjoy reading your posts and seeing your collection. It is possible the platter is unmarked. However, I believe this platter was probably manufactured by Her...
  44. What a sensational platter! Are there any maker's marks on the back? PLEASE, will you photograph the entire back and in particular, a closeup of any and all marks. Your platter comprises numerous G...
  45. Hi, Alan, and thank you for your thoughtful post. I should have realized that you had already done a scholarly examination to determine the authenticity and age. Your methods demonstrate your vast kno...

  48. Hi, Mike. It is the National Screen Service (NSS) numbering system. Read the article on the learnaboutmovieposters dot com site: http://www.learnaboutmovieposters.com/newsite/index/countries/US/histo...
  49. Alan, a wonderful surprise indeed. The title is "The Breakfast Symptoms of DrowsineSs. In old English, the double "s" at the end of a word had an elongated "s" that looks like "fs." Is your print ...
  50. VL, here is another very similar portrait "so it's possible" your portrait is "after" the portrait by Martin van Meytens the Younger (1695–1770) who was the "preferred portraitist at Marie Theresa's i...
