    Because I've got so much time(COVID19), I've been sorting, reorganizing, and putting things in different storage areas, in and around our Home. In doing so, it also turns into a Treasure Hunt, of things that I've Collected over the past 50+ Years, and seeing them again, is the Treasure! :^D I found a small box with Robert Maxwell Mushrooms written on it, every time that I found another Mushroom, I would put it in the box, so I opened it, pulled out five Mushrooms, and the Bunny made by Robert Maxwell Pottery of California in the 1960's-70s, all unmarked, and missing the normal Paper labels. The Tops of the Stoneware Mushrooms, have a Multi Colored Gloss Glaze, and unglazed on the Stems, and bottom. The Bunny has a White Glaze with a thin Coat of Brown, and has solid Brown Eyes, and the inside of it's Ears, the unglazed bottom, has a Brown Felt cover glued on.
    The Syroco Wood Elephant, with Black and Gold Paper Label, on the bottom of it's front Foot, is the Syroco Wood Brown, with Black Eyes and Nostrils, and White Tusks, it is 9" long x 8" tall x 3 1/2" wide, and is here because it can't Forget why it shouldn't be! :^D

    Thank you for looking, I hope that all are Safe, and Well! All comments are welcome! :^)

      Off topic, but have you heard from Rick55 lately ?
    6. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 9 months ago
      Hey David, Rick was getting too busy with his buying, and selling, and didn't feel that he could give the time that he'd like too to CW, so only stops by for a look once in a while. I don't know if the email address that he has posted, he uses as much but you could try that! :^D I have his phone number, and might check in with him, to see how he's doing. Take Care, and I'll try to get back with any news, if I can! :^)
    7. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 9 months ago
      I sent an Email to Rick, and let you know, if I get a reply! :^)
    8. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 9 months ago
      Hi, yeah I have been trying his email and phone also. My name is Bill (he calls me william lol) haven't heard back from him in awhile. I just want to know if he is everything is ok with him. Thanks . If you do reach him tell him I was concerned.
    9. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 9 months ago
      The last that I heard, Rick's computer burned up and he lost all his Email contacts, and his phone is full, with a mailbox not set up, I guess we could try and find something that he's selling, and try to contact through that. His wife's parents live in California, but I never got their phone number, when Rick and Gloria were trying to meet me when they were going to be visiting them. I'll keep trying to get in touch with Rick, who knows, might get a hold of him! Thanks for checking back Bill, Take Care! :^)

      So glad to hear.
