  1. There is a set of 3 Beatles--one is missing, maybe you have it??--that are currently for sale on Etsy in a shop called BlueStarAntiques. The ones listed there are painted but they really look so simi...
  2. Thank you, Cairngorm10!!! I love finding things (my treasure hunts) and researching but it is SO nice to have someone knowledgeable to verify what you think you know (like the "Tiger" pattern and the...
  3. Thank you all for the suggestions and the likes!! They really are appreciated. This piece is 8.25" tall and 5.5" wide. Looks just like other Mdina vases I can find except for the fact that it is...
  4. LOL! Yeah, it's not much good as a vase.
  5. FINALLY! The mystery is solved. The painting was done by California artist, Richard Brian Hazel. Thank you to everyone who helped and posted.
  6. Think that I finally found the answer! It appears to be a bark animal made by the Cabécar tribe in the Talamanca Mountains of Costa Rica. They create animals such as this one using hand-made copra ...
  7. Thank you to everyone who likes this! And, Gillian, thank you so much for the response. It ended up helping a lot. I looked up banana fiber which didn't quite match....however, while looking that u...
  8. I believe that this is an Anri wine stopper - double-head kissing figures
  9. I had previously discounted that pottery because it usually has a lot of red--not simple black & white coloring, like this vase. But, based on your reply, I went back and did some more research. I d...
  10. It's a hand-painted souvenir from Mallorca Spain. There are some tiles on ebay right now with similar dancers... Titled: Spanish Hand Painted Mallorca Tiles (3)
  11. I did a quick search through the Blenko 62-71 catalogs and didn't find a match for this vase. If it's Blenko, it's probably not from those years (unless I missed it).
  12. That catalog is included in a hardback book I bought: "Blenko Glass 1962-1971 Catalogs", Leslie Pina. This book has photographs of the pages from each of the catalogs (62-71). I think I purchas...
  13. Thank you for your idea. The first initial--yes I think it is but I can't read it either. I hadn't thought of Hanjel so I did a search for an artist using your suggestion (a good one). And, no luck...
  14. CanyonRoad - Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so impressed by how quickly this mystery was solved by you. And ESPECIALLY for all the information that you provided. I really learned somethin...
  15. That's a great idea--especially because it may be a local artist, which seems to happen a lot. Thank you for the suggestion. Plus you just made me take another look at that signature and I think tha...
  16. Thank you! Sounds like there are experts here so -- fingers crossed that one of them will know. And thank you to everyone who said they love this little bowl!!!
  17. Thank you!! I LOVE this one, too. It may be getting a frame soon. It deserves one. Still wish I knew the artist. I sure love researching and trying to solve the mystery of signatures but I ju...
  18. Thank you for your comments. Yes, a little paint would help that stark white spot!! :) Your idea about the name is exactly what I thought. The first period after the M looks a lot like an I (??)...
  19. Thomas and Karen, thank you both for your responses! Karen, now that you said that, I can definitely see AOKI or even ADKI in that signature--I just didn't see it before--another set or sets of eyes ...
  20. Just an update -- this ended up being Blenko designed by Joel Myers. I found in in the 1967 catalog, listed as number 6720.
  21. LOL--I can see that, too! Still feel like that actor is someone I should know. If it is Hollywood, hopefully some expert film-buff will be able to identify the actor for us.
  22. You may be right. Maybe German? The make-up artist looks like he might be Asian. It is hard to tell from that angle.
  23. This looks exactly like the short part of a 3 piece section wall-hugging dining unit--sometimes called a dining nook. I still have mine and it is identical to yours. I also have a longer identical p...
  24. It is probably a shingata (modern) style kokeshi rather than traditional.
  25. A great place for researching blades (I just researched an old ax there and found all sorts of info) is a website called bladeforums.
  26. Thank you for the loves! I thought it was really a beauty when I found. I'm still hope someone who KNOWS their Blenko can set me straight. I'd love to know whether my identification is right or if ...
  27. Bellin68, I appreciate your comment because that's what I thought as well. I think it is 60s or 70s--just a gut feeling. Keep wondering, though, which company did it or even might have done it.
