  11. Beautiful, riaz06,. I'd personally rather have the enamel than lapis, but I'm just weird, I guess!
  12. Beautiful, Fran!
  13. Amber, that's awesome. I do look at stuff and think, "I should get that". I think that after a while, you get to know what's good and what's not, even if it's "not your area" That's how I ended up wit...

  17. I don't think so TallCakes. He's just holding it, not throwing it. (I assume you meant Discobolus? I had to Google him). When you throw a discus, your fingers go over the edge (I threw Discus and Shot...

  23. Good one, aghcollect. As a side note, the name of the town is pronounced as Nun-day, it's south of Rochester, N.Y.. My wife's father used to hunt there!
  24. Ok, I found this also.. Pretty cool! From the Nunda, N.Y News in a 50 years ago coulumn from 1953 (that would make it 1903): "W. L. Dailey, well-known Nunda china painter, was invited to act as a judg...
  25. And apparently it is Nunda, N.Y. A town in Livingston county. Still looking for mentions, probably a jeweler
  26. Pam, I did a google search on W.L Dailey porcelin and came up with a lot of images: https://www.google.com/search?q=w+l+dailey+porcelin&num=100&newwindow=1&safe=off&espv=210&es_sm=122&source=lnms&tbm=...

  40. LOL icollect! I hadn't noticed it until you mentioned it. I have a picture of the whole sheet. There are also 2 ads for transportation to the Worlds Fair. One was $5 a person, 7 people minimum for Edd...
  41. You're welcome, Heather! I wouldn't try to restore it myself either. Enamel takes special treatment so it will be heat resistant. I have seen unrestored stoves go for good money too! Love the color on...

  44. That's a beauty!!
  45. Here's a similar one, they say it's worth $2000: http://www.countryliving.com/antiques/appraisals/what-its-worth#slide-1
  46. The nice thing about these stoves is that they just bolt together, so they can be disassembled to be moved. Beautiful piece!
