  1. It's a great collectible given that it has a 4 character bottom stamp. It looks Chinese and could possible tell the province where it was made if researched. It's post 1930's seeing it has Phillips sc...
  2. I have a similar box with the same brushed brass look, rust n all. It has some ones initials on it with 1937 below that. Is yours a playing card box maybe?
  3. From what I remember, when the L can be read from the underside, it's the older Libby glass. They L eventually became readable looking from the inside down.
  4. Cool item. If you couldn't afford a photographer, and they where expensive back then, why not get a 'child hood pitcher' like this.
  5. Thank you Rosiegirl. So great to finally get some info on this piece. I saw a smaller one of about 2/3rd's of mine on C/list about 6 months ago much to my surprise but the seller indicated nothing spe...
  6. I see a small percentage of these with a Lavorazione 'Arte' label and other Murano labels on them which says made in Italy, but the labels are questionable too I figure.
  7. No one will ever doubt it's Pukeberg I'm sure. Label or not. I just happened to see this style of glass alot while researching my little animal guys. TG for a label in my case though since they do see...
  8. Pukeberg?
  9. Very nice paintings. Just the frames alone are great.
  10. It looks a like 'Roulette' sorbet by Anchor Hawking.
  11. Nice ashtray. Hand painted? Went out of business in '47. Check it out under blossom marks here.http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/20thcenturyjapan.shtml
  12. Nice vase raacer4four. I really like it's sturdy and bold look, and yes interesting handles. I thought paint and was amazed to read "Glass". So as I understand from your post that the roots of Kamei's...
  13. Here's my soapstone horse Mrstyndall. He's got a little scratch on his back.
  14. I inquired with a soapstone carver as to how to repair some faint scratches on a soapstone carving I have. Thinking I could do it myself, he kinda chuckled at my question and replied that 'there are 7...
  15. Do the coins dates coincide with the colour release years? I know we had a lot of Fostoria clear/frosted items in '67 with the 1967 centennial coins here in Canada.
  16. Perhaps someone has a lucky rabbits foot charm or necklace.
  17. The circled characters are likely the family name which identifies the artist. You might have some luck researching Yixing artists.
  18. It might be Haida Gwai and possibly had a lid when made. I've been told the darker strips/designs are usually cherry wood.
  19. Wow. I have a swan with the exact same glaze, colour and styling i want to research soon. I'll let you know if I come up with some clues.
  20. I warned my neighbour a few weeks ago that there was 3 black bears in my back yard passing through the day before. She said, " So that's why my garden is dug up, my grapes are gone, my cloths line is ...
  21. Thank you Tassiedevil for the love click. And many thanks as well to mikelv85, aura, beyemvey, antiquerose:), vetraio50, blunderbuss2, and racer4four for hittn these vases with some love. When I bough...
  22. Thanks for the love antiquerose. I'm going to try post tomorrow, 2 pieces of RC pottery i have just unboxed (from last years swap meet). I think you'll love these 2 vases.
  23. Check this out racer4four. http://www.japanesepotterymarks.info/index.php?ref_num=1247

  25. Very interesting without the words trade mark on it. Very nice colour to it too.
  26. Here's one site you could look at. http://gotheborg.com/marks/macaustyle.shtml
  27. Excellent website Tallcakes. I'm amazed at the page after page of 3 chain lampshades here for viewing.
  28. Very nice. I consulted one of my very favorite websites to find Carnaby was produced 1968-1976. Would I see Holmegaard and maybe a production number on these if I was to fortune upon one?
  29. It's nice and has good subject matter. It's 20 century Macau. It's worth, keeping. Knowing it's Macau, I'd tend to want to remove the labels now revealing the stamp. There's likely more info availabl...
  30. If it's Asian, It appears hand rubbed oil finished and not lacquered. If so, it could easily predate 1850-60 when this practise diminished due to a 'good' wood shortage, and poorer wood was used, and ...
  31. If the provenance was described as 'Railway sign' to you, then I'm swaying over to railcar spec tag. 20 tons isn't very much and todays railcars can carry 125 tons. But in the 40's& 50's , they could...
  32. Very nice. If it's intended use is not for certain, I wonder if that's a frog type lid ?
  33. It kinda weird with the Agents thing on it. Maybe the i.d plaque off a large industrial scale?
  34. The English tried to no end to get that nice white china. They ended up putting bone in it to try to get it as white as the Chinese stuff. The European/Aristocrats also tried for years and years to co...
  35. Early peoples republic period 1949-66 is what I'm led to believe. Possibly stamped for the European or markets other than North America due to it's lack of made in wording, or could have been brought ...
  36. Great collection. I think you might have issues 92,93,and 94 there. I have a vintage newsletter from your town that explains there where 94 issues up until 1975. Thanks for posting.
  37. From Mr. Pee Gee, " Thanks for the loves everyone ". Hi rusticross. I like what you have collected. You have some good ones there especially the '66. What a great find. Anything interesting printed...
  38. All 3 look very nicely crafted. I though vintage Chinese at a glance but not sure. A fleur de lis on the one might be a clue though. Victorian?
  39. I like this artists style. She seems to paint and draw in a 'blurry memory' form, and is true to her artwork as she remembers the moments. Her works don't seem over-done to give the viewer firm recoun...
  40. Interesting vase accompaniment.
  41. Really cool item. Interesting mechanism.Hazarding a guess the spring might gradually feed up the candle, and/or eject the spent stub?
  42. I've always liked Vikings orange.
  43. Wow, the Co-operative dome really stands above the crowd. She's a beaut. The scarcity of the domes is well received. I had no idea, and will never pass by one in a hurry during my travels. Splendid i...
  44. Seems like very good info auntie and goes to show it can take some time for the right person to come along and provide info on some of the mysteries.For that I love the post.
  45. So very nice. Even the provenance.
  46. Most delightful it must have been many years ago to share a cake with friends or family, all the while revealing a delicious pattern such as this. Like other table ware, I'd imagine some cake stands...
  47. Mark112, you have the most amazing collection of globes. I just bought my first Annagroen globe today and my subsequent CW search led me to you. My find was not a uranium green item I've ever come acr...
  48. What year do you think this was made? At some point (1915?) the corset was becoming widely frowned upon so just curious.
  49. https://www.rubylane.com/item/813606-PW1430/Thousand-Eye-6-Blue-Goblet-1870s Ancestral?
  50. Thousand eye aside, Tiffin did 3 piece molds. May be a manf. to look at. Don't know what they did tho other than carnival glass.
