Western Washington state, u.s.a

Just a collector of beautiful things, mostly old, sometimes newer, also big time rock hound, into tumbling beach rocks I have been gathering for about 35 years.

  1. I'm in love! That's the first one like this I have ever seen, thank you for sharing with everyone!
  2. Tried (failed, lol) to use a heart shaped exclamation point, upon submitting it transformed into 2 question marks, please disregard!
  3. Love these, very apropos post, and uniquely beautiful as well! Happiest of Valentines to you and yours??
  4. Thanks Waki! I was given this one, was thrown in with a planter I picked up at an estate sale, the dogwood was just me quoting someone's similar post on ebay, I will do better research going forward! ...
  5. Thanks for the love everyone! Newfld, I agree, it is an intense blue! You should have seen it before I washed it, I had no idea it had such a deep shine under the grime, it looked almost matte when ...
  6. It is just beautiful! Love the rich red color. I believe that I have a very similar one, excepting mine is red and yellow/orange, like a sunset! When I display it again next fall I will have to post i...
  7. Eye popping set! I am awed by how striking it is, and the color!! Unbelievable amount of work on the craftsmanship end of things, which explains in part, at least, why it's still around for us all to...
  8. Thank you Apostata!
  9. Can't help with the identity, but I do think it's beautiful! Looks like a Christmas tree ornament!
  10. Thank you Apostata, I think I understand what you mean, and it makes sense, I just thought it'd been applied by a 3 year old! (Just kidding, but it was odd to me, since the painting of the piece seems...
  11. Question for Apostata, what is a dipping application?
  12. Thanks Apostata! Always something new to consider, didn't know all those glaze and shape clues to look for, but being it's from my kids, it'll be a keeper, am guessing that it's at least worth the 4.0...
  13. ThNks all gor the loves, and yes, I agree Apostata, thank you for your help!
  14. I feel like an idiot to ask, PhilDMorris, what exactly is a hobby light? I'm sure I could Google it, but I sometimes feel a need to have a human answer, and skip the search engine, thanks to you and D...
  15. It's OK to joke sometimes, I just take a bit longer to realize it than most people. I can see where it looks kind of designed for a urinal! Perhaps nicer to display as a incense burner, lol.
  16. Well, leave it to me to just blindly believe! I've always had to be wary due to my extreme gullibility! My friends and family love putting one over on me, free entertainment!
  17. Beautiful! I have a dark green one, but not carnival glazed, sadly! Yours is stunning!
  18. Beautiful vases, and excellent work tracking down the frogs!
  19. Thanks to both Apostata and kwqd for replying to me query. I think it's great to keep them up regardless of changes in ownership, so much helpful information would be inaccessible to many people other...
  20. Thanks for the information Apostata! I thought it was likely new, but I am surprised that I didn't see the number of children being wrong, as I actually knew that fact, for once, although little good ...
  21. Well, the use of this was a suprise! Pretty fancy vessel for a urinal!
  22. Gorgeous patina! Looks old to me, but I am not very knowledgeable on that yet!
  23. Thank you Apostata, you have given me a lot to think about! I guess if my lamp is only worth thirty-five dollars that is fine, I genuinely enjoy the somewhat boho bright colors, not my usual decor, wh...
  24. So at the end of the day, was this a good buying decision, in your opinion? I am going to downsize some of the less interesting things I've acquired in the last few years, and am grateful for your inp...
  25. Agreed on all points, especially the hoarding! Have been doing a purge of my things, it's a process, and can be painful. Do you think that I should unscrew the base, and see if there's any marking und...
  26. Does anyone know if it's possible to get a piece like this restored to the original vase, and if so, who would I even see about the restoration? Thanks in advance for any information!
  27. Crap, forgot to adapt photos, will fix asap. Wanted to add measurements, it's approximate 14" tall, ceramic vessel only, not lamp parts or base, and 26" around at the widest point, and 6" depth.
  28. Apostate, your information is so helpful, I keep falling down the rabbit hole and it's been difficult to grab any real answers online so far. I thought maybe a 1970ish reproduction, but if it is they ...
  29. Thank you everyone for the appreciation, love and comments! I tend to think it's probably 1970s- ish, but I definitely feel that it is an odd conglomerative of several different styles, perhaps made i...
  30. The colors remind me of some older Chinese brown pottery I've seen pictures of.
  31. I'm in the same boat, recognize some, but not all.
  32. Wow, that's an unusual way to receive jewelry, lol! Well please let us know what you find out, you have many beautiful gems!
  33. Love this!
  34. Beautiful piece, someone did a very fine job with the silver! Would love to know what all stones and gems it has! Nice!
  35. So beautiful, and by the pinkish color it looks like it's a Burmese ruby, if it is old enough, I believe that they are top quality, and not sure they even mine them in Burma anymore! Worth having a kn...
  36. Thanks for the loves, and newfld, that sounds like a cute cartoon! Was that in Japan? Thank you phildmorris for the great compliment to my bowl, wish I had a better idea of the age of the piece.
  37. Boo Hiss math pi, huzzah huzzah tasty pie!
  38. Thanks to all for the loves, and I wanted to say that I have learned that it's a hip flask, not a decanter as I thought!
  39. Wowza! That is so beautiful! I may have been a bird in a past life, because I am easily distracted by sparkly things, lol!
  40. What a stunning pair! Beautiful!
  41. Thanks Apostata! Not sure what that means, but it is a great bowl for ice cream!
  42. Hello rhineisfine! Thank you for the information and links, will be checking that out asap, thanks for taking time to post!
  43. Thanks kwqd, your set actually popped up in my Google search a few months ago, and yours is matching, but the bottoms on mine are not, so maybe 2 sets cobbled together? This is my second set, first ...
  44. Thank you newfld! I guess I neglected to post that it's not just a plate, it's 3 plates! Each one different, and all different degrees of quality, in my opinion! Thanks all, for the loves!
  45. That's so much! I hope you are feeling better!
  46. Well, you've got me by 10 years and a few degrees, I'm a work in progress on anything tech.
  47. Thanks kwqd! The pitcher I had before was just like this, and I tried a few different guesses, but still nothing. Maybe you could tell me what your secret is for online research, you've helped me many...
  48. Oh dear! Apostata, I am be sending you bunches of positive thoughts and healing energy, looking forward to seeing you soon hope and pray all things go well for you. Please check in when you can, and ...
  49. Thanks as always, Apostata, you are the bomb(exploding my hopes, as it were, lol!) Thank you, and I will keep it, I like all the different scenes, it's pretty and not too big! Got a couple things I'...
  50. Still hoping I will learn more about this piece, thanks for the love!
  51. See more
