  2. Wow! Watch out for the cops, you stole that!!!
  3. A very nice piece, and welcome to CW!
  4. Sweet! That's a beauty!
  5. I won't get in the middle of that. My wife's family is from near Pultneyville, if you know where that is.
  6. I think it's a mid- century (mahogany?) desk. Usually a buffet would not have that space in the middle, and it would be up on legs. Very nice piece!
  7. I love the way they look under a blacklight!
  8. I have this one and the twins in green. The first depression glass piece I ever bought! Love it!
  9. A beautiful piece!
  10. Thanks for the loves everyone!
  11. Thanks Amber! I am as well as can be expected, this is not my favorite climate by far! And how have you been faring? It's been ages! Thanks for the kind words!
  12. I love the deco lamp in the background of the 3rd pic!
  13. Yep, I don't know why they'd do that?! Yours is better!!!
  14. Apparently this is known to collectors as the "Kansas City" There is one very similar to yours (though someone has painted the nickle plated parts. Here is a link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stromberg-Ca...
  15. Hey Dr. F, I love the new pic. I'm now following your FB group. Love the cartier Egyptian brooch!
  16. Those are saweet! I love the two on the right in back, especially the one with the key design. Can you post a pic of those closer?
  17. Thanks, Dr. F. She is!. And thanks for the loves Agh, Linda and Dr. F!
  18. Thanks Mae!
  19. Very nice!
  20. I love the 1st one, very unusual, and very deco!
  21. The link I sent had a size, I think.
  22. Check this out Danjimcol: https://collection.cooperhewitt.org/objects/18382391/ Definitely in the same genre. I've never seen one like this.
  23. Thanks for the post! I'll keep an eye out for that. I'd never heard of it, but it's very cool and the mark is quite unique.
  24. Sweet. It's a beauty!
  25. I don't know if I'd date it, but I'd take it out for coffee! All kidding aside, very pretty!
  26. Great clock. What is the diameter?
  27. What does the mark say? I can't make it out. If it says Alpaca, it;s modern coin silver. I have a few similar pieces posted, but with Mother of pearl instead of the stone.
  28. Thanks again, Zowie!
  29. Very nice!
  30. Mike, I notice the center glass piece is missing from the 3rd pic. Does it go with the lamp? Rose, I think you're right, it would glow. Very cool, and pretty rare. I haven't seen one like it in person.
  31. Probably 20s - 40s. Interesting design. Welcome to CW Mitchellhouse!
  32. Thanks, Phil!
  33. Beautiful, Phil!
  34. Thanks Dr. F, rose, and Fort! And thanks for the loves, everyone!

  36. Wow.... just wow!
  37. Cool, I'll have to check that out
  38. Thanks Dr.F!
  39. I just went out and looked, Dr. F. Very cool! I also was looking at some of your other (also very cool) stuff as well!
  40. Hey, Dr! This might be listed under Depression glass. There were many different colors, (pink and green being the most common) with about a billion different patterns, and the green glows under blackl...
  41. Wow, how big is that? The pin looks like a door hinge. Whoever made that wasn't fooling around!
  42. The larger one is my fav!
  43. Umm. I assume "Book Pieces" mean they're documented somewhere? Is there a book just for Boucher? Thanks everyone!
  44. Congrats, Dr! Good luck with your endeavor! And these are really cool!
