  1. I forgot to mention: my Dominion fan is a two speed fan. The Vornado may be two speed as well, but all the others are one speed. The Zip, the Zero, and the Sterling have no switches--- you just unplu...
  2. Fortapache, I've always thought my Dominion fan was from around 1960. It's turquoise, with gray blades. Turquoise was really "in" in 1960. It's a 12 inch oscillating fan. The base is sheet metal, not ...
  3. Reminds me of Loetz Tango.
  4. Beautiful Art Deco fan! I have about a half dozen old fans, and one is a Dominion. It still has the sticker saying it was advertised in Life and on NBC.
  5. Never heard of Wine-Dip,but I have a Budwine soda bottle!
  6. Nice! I have well over a hundred different pop bottles, but I haven't got a NuGrape one! Pop bottles are a great thing to collect, IMO. There are so many different brands and sizes, and some are beau...
  7. If you take it to a jeweler, they can probably identify it. It could be emerald, tourmaline, or green garnet, etc. .
  8. The groove in the handle would have made it hang straight, when hung on a hook, but still be comfortable to carry by the handle.
  9. The one with the hinged metal bracket had the added benefit of the ability to swivel the phone aside, when not in use.
  10. Maybe you could look through Google images for others like them...? Or ask someone who sells collectible Nikes on eBay?
  11. I have seen this type before, and it was indeed used as a planter.
  12. Parts of it obviously are shaped to resemble bamboo. The body of it may be intended to be peach-shaped. I believe a peach is a symbol of longevity.
  13. I forgot to mention that the number was scratched on the bottom. The first number looks like they used a pin. The others are clearer, like they found a better tool to use, after trying the pin!
  14. Very nice! Like I said about the other one: I bet it's Murano.
  15. I looked for similar glazes online today, and got some info! This type of glaze is called "curdled". (An ugly name for a pretty glaze, IMO!) There are 2 other Rookwood vases on eBay today with curdle...
  16. I'm marking this mystery as solved, although as I said in the previous post, I'd love to have more info, to answer my remaining questions, or reports of other pieces that say "DOYAL"! Thanks again, t...
  17. Good news! Christopher Evans, of the Facebook Doulton Collector's Club, who is apparently a go-to authority, after seeing the photo of the maker's mark,said "It all looks fine there must have been a ...
  18. I just looked it up! There were windmills in England since 1180, sited on hills (just as on my humidor!) to catch more wind. Ha! So there!
  19. Thank you, MaryH! That could be very helpful! I just left a question on the Facebook Doulton Collectors Club. If they can't offer the needed info, I'll try Doulton. I love Arts & Crafts style because...
  20. Thank you, SEAN68, but I'm not sure what photo you especially wished to call to my attention--? I found one like mine, except for the "D", yesterday on Google images, but somehow I can't find it now!...
  21. I just left a message on the Doulton Collectors Club's website, for Paul Webster Antiques.
  22. I just read everything currently available on the stopdoultonfakes website, and searched for any reference to my item. It seems that the types of fakes they are trying to ban do not involve anything ...
  23. Mary, the seller says it is definitely a Royal Doulton, and that is how it was described in the ad. He had not noticed the "D", and I failed to notice it in his photo, although it is there. I don't i...
  24. I looked at the brown glaze with my pocket microscope, and it does have lots of bits of shiny gold stuff in it! It's pretty amazing. Also, I couldn't stand the grime on it anymore, so I wiped it off ...
  25. I've looked at so much pottery today, trying to figure this out! I gave in and sent a message to the seller I got it from. At this point, I don't think I'll give it back, even if I can! Anyway, somew...
  26. Efesgirl, thanks for the link. I signed up for their blog, (stop fakes), but still can't look at their site, because I don't have a password! I sent them a message. Hopefully, they'll get back to me....
  27. My guess is, they're glass. I bought some bowls that were supposed to be jade. I didn't really believe it, but they looked like jadite glass, which I love. They are glass; exactly the color of old ja...
  28. Thank you! It's a long story, but I went through a long process with my photo-attaching method today, and there were other complications. Actually, I didn't make myself very clear--I was asking olebo...
  29. I have posted a photo of its bottom in a new post, called "My New Rookwood, continued". That was the only way I could think of! What do you think?
  30. Thank you ! Both of you! Can you explain why it's called a "range"? Is it just like the way we say "line"? As in "They have a lovely line of housewares."? If my glass vase is the "grun geadert dekor"...
  31. I guess that's "red veined" and "green veined"? I wouldn't know which it is, since it has red AND green! How did you guess which? And thank you for the info!
  32. I have just put my 2 WMF pieces on the Show & Tell. I hope you like them. :)
  33. Thank you very much! Any info is appreciated. I intend to put my 2 vases on the Show & Tell.
  34. I neglected to check the box-I'd like to get emails of comments--maybe respond to THIS? Sorry!
  35. I am fortunate enough to have a WMF ceramic vase and a WMF Ikora glass vase. I don't really know a lot about them, though. If someone could tell me where I could go online to read about them, I'd app...
  36. (Forgive me if this appears twice--I left a comment, and it seems to have disappeared!) I think we all learned a lot today! I am very grateful for all the research and effort you kind folks went thro...
  37. Okay, now I have another piece of the puzzle, just to complicate the whole question. I was polishing something else, and took the opportunity to polish the Vesta a little. I had noticed that the hang...
  38. Yes, Efesgirl, anyone with a brain should. I frequently give them a heads-up when I see them saying something that can't be right. Usually, they are grateful. EBay's policies are tough on American se...
  39. The dimensions are given in my post. :)
  40. The item to which you shared a link is similar, as it's the same size, and has a similar hanging loop. However, it is referred to as a Vesta, and it has a striker strip.
  41. Thanks for the suggestion, Efesgirl. I had sort of assumed that it was not from the UK, since it has no hallmarks. What you suggest would tell me what it's made of, but not who made it, or when, or f...
  42. No, just silver colored. Why?
  43. Thanks, Celiene, for the links. Mine is much too small for cigarettes; BARELY big enough for a matchbook, maybe. I think it's definitely for single matches, but the lack of a striker still puzzles me...
  44. I blew my lines! The lady said "I'd rather COMMIT adultery than be seen smoking in public!". This is why I don't tell jokes very well.
  45. Thanks to all of you, especially Jewels1900. I had made the connection with the goddess Vesta (all by myself! I felt so clever!), but didn't know about the brand of matches. I'll leave it as a "myste...
  46. It's spelled chalcopyrite. Pyrite, by the way, is sometimes called"fool's gold". I love stones!
  47. I think they are teak. I'm pretty sure they're not cherry. I am always a sucker for pretty wood, no matter what it is! These are very nice.
  48. Yes, I be a revenant. And I still be wantin' to know who shot me!
  49. Probably Murano.
  50. Anyone who loves Alice should have "The Annotated Alice". I don't know if it's in print. It came out in the '70s. It is the original book with tons of stuff in the margin that you never knew about th...
