    I really wasn't going to go to GW today since Sunday is crazy crowded. They change the price tag colors for $1.00 and 50% off. Boy, am I glad I did. I found my first Nippon Vase ! It's 12" tall and decorated with pink and yellow poppies against a serene lake and forest landscape. They had this tagged as on Facebook. I can never find their stuff when they post it, but they still sell it in the store as well. It was marked "as is" so I knew there was damage somewhere. My Nippon has a "nip" in the top edge. There are two little wedge shape pieces glued back in the front ruffle on top and they're crooked too ! I might try to release and re-glue them, but old fashioned glue is the worst to try and remove. It's marked on the bottom with the 1906-1921 green globe mark for " Royal Nishiki " Nippon along with the pattern and style numbers. This is mark number "91" in the Van Patten Nippon book. There was also a red "Satsuma" style vase in the case and it was perfect too but unmarked. The price was way to high for my wallet. I actually like this one better damaged or not . -Mike-

      Those pink poppies POP!
      How do you release the mend? Paint solvent? And what glue would you use to repair it?

      Thanks for the "loves" Elisabethan and racer4four :)

      Yes, those poppies sure do "pop" Karen....especially being outlined in the raised gilt.
      I've looked at a few restoration sites and one of them actually tells you how to "step by step" tackle a small restoration yourself. You have to find the type of glue and the appropriate solvent as you said. Then you can clean and replace the pieces with a water based glue. They fill in any cracks with a special epoxy. Then match the colors to the rest of the piece. All these things are available at arts and craft and hardware stores. It's an interesting process and is reversible if need be. Most of the cost of professional restoration is in the labor required for color matching I've been told. It's amazing process though and can make anything look new again ! -Mike-

      Ok. I've got this really cool hand painted plate that is repaired badly and sits in my garden. I might check out trying o improve it. Thanks for the info!

      Here's a link to a helpful site Karen :)

      Cool. Thanks for that Mike.
      I expect to see photos of your fully restored piece by Wednesday!

      You're welcome Karen.....I have this piece, a chipped Roseville vase, and a chipped Rookwood bowl, I have good intentions but just a bit afraid I'd do more harm than good value wise. That's why I keep putting it off, but someday I'll get the confidence to -Mike-

      Always buy what you love! This is a beautiful vase and I'd buy it, cracked or not. You can always display it where the nip doesn't show as I have done.

      Thank you Braider :) I checked out your posts and they are all exceptional. Our Goodwill is starting to get loaded with things for some reason, Roseville, Nippon, some Hull pottery. I can't afford everything I There was another red vase unmarked that I looked at. I think it had purple hydrangeas on it. They wanted $75.00 for it. I look at it every time I'm there. I don't think it will sell till it gets marked down, it's been almost a week. They check the internet and over price or mark it retail if it's anything really good. The's a blessing and a -Mike-
