  1. I have an ID for you! One of the members of Modish posted a pic of the male figure with box from Royal Krona - I don't know if you're a member there, but here's a link to the post: http://modish.n...
  2. It is Viking - early '80s, from their Finnish Vessel line. This was called a "crown" bowl.
  3. I think that the dish itself was made by Arabia of Finland - there's a Arabia plate on Ebay right now marked "Paulin", altho' the signature's a little different. Is the upper part of the mark covered...
  4. Thanks for the love, everyone!
  5. I would guess it's the lid to a dresser trinket box, with the bowl above intended to hold rings, but that's *just* a guess. No idea about maker - if you're in the US, I'd start with some of the Elega...
  6. At first I thought this was by Paul Borda of Dryad Design, but it's not shown on their website - if it is, it's a discontinued item. Very reminiscent of some of his work, tho'.
  7. Wonderful info, rniederman! Someone commented (on one of the pages I posted at the bottom, forget which one exactly) that Eastman had released a camera in 1888 that was something a person could use on...
  8. Terrific history lesson!
  9. Looks to me like the signature reads "Helen Borman." (or maybe "Berman.")
  10. The enamel technique used here isn't cloisonné, but champlevé - in cloisonné, the areas to be enameled are set out with wires or strips of metal that are fused to the surface, whereas in champlevé the...
  11. Looks more like coconut than fur, to me - embedded in some sort of resin, maybe?
  12. I feel pretty certain they're not Blenko, Viking or some other US co. I'd be leaning heavily toward Scandinavian as well - some European maker, for sure. You might try posting pics on the glassmess...
  13. I would guess it's a cigarette box?
  14. The curved arms & carved "paw" feet suggest American Empire (ca. 1st half of the 19th c.) - there was also a revival of the style in the 1920s or so, and although it's impossible to tell w/o a good lo...
  15. I also meant to say - this is *gorgeous.*
  16. The leopard head is London's city mark, and the "f" is 1901 (based on the style of the letter and the shape of the shield.) Don't have any help for you on the WGC/shamrock, unfortunately, but maybe s...
  17. The mark on the tumbler is "Seneca" - it's from their Driftwood Casual line. Here's a link to a site that shows lots of pics of the line - http://home.comcast.net/~mfreier/dwtumb.html - I think ...
  18. Thanks much for that great link! That was one I hadn't seen yet. The other 1930s Italian ceramic artist whose work featured similar designs is Guido Andlovitz - thus far I haven't found any conne...
  19. Just a couple of details - the decoration on this piece, with the tiny glass beads over painted areas, is called "coralene" - it didn't hold up well over time, and it's pretty common for there to be d...
  20. I don't think it's a tumble-up - the neck is about 3" in diameter, which would mean a pretty huge drinking glass. (I really need to find my ruler and get accurate measurements on this thing.) Tha...
  21. Thanks! I've been lurking here for quite a while - quite a range of knowledge from what I've seen, and I'm sure I'm going to learn a lot (and hopefully be able to contribute what I know as well.)
  22. See more
