  13. Amazing work! I'm a HUGE Bat fan, too!
  14. It's a Midwife Toad! The male carries the eggs on his back like that. How weird ashe made one of those! I wonder if it was for a Natural museum gift shop or something? The real life eggs (Emb...
  15. You can contact the British postal museum. There is a contact link at the bottom of the page. They may have been used in a Commonwealth country. https://www.postalmuseum.org/
  16. There are VR post boxes in England and the VR means Victoria Regina.
  17. You have so many gorgeous pieces, Phil - do they ever get worn by anyone?
  18. Is there a picture missing? The signature is on a flat surface, but the other picture shows no flat surface. How does is stand up? Is that a stopper? I don't get it! Where do you put the flowers?

  24. I've seen some others now that say they are from from China. Is it ONE piece of bamboo that goes in concentric rings?? How are rie ribs woven in? The decoration is painted on EACH horizontal fibre ...
  25. Thanks, Phil! I'm still waiting for someone to chime in. I have no idea how this is made, what it's called or where it's from still!
  26. WOWZA!! God - I'd kill for that set! I'd wear it to Safeway to pick up my jug wine. I don't care!
  27. Are the coral parts cold or warm to the touch? Do they feel like glass or stone or plastic? IS that a mark at the bottom opposite the jump ring where you would add a chain?
  28. I'd say carved coral and natural pearls. The mounting looks gold, as does the wires. BEAUTIFUL! I don't think it was a clasp. But it looks like it could alo hang as a pendant. Do you see any mark...

  37. I think the necklace is Cherokee. Very NICE.
  38. I think Lona Smith is who owned it. Looks like she wrote & scratched something out just under the L, too. Maybe it was a picture of her! Was Lona an actress in New Zealand?
  39. It's beautiful.
  40. That's fantastic!
  41. You can post a link to a YouTube video! Or to a facebook page, I think. I'd love to see it in action.
  42. "Flowers are one of the most popular and well-received gifts, often given to express love and affection. But did you know the type of flowers you give can speak volumes? The Secret Language of Flowers...
