  1. In these tumultuous times it is so calming to see people enthusiastic about a tiny double boiler. Thanks for sharing.
  2. What a beautiful set with a heart warming history.
  3. Almost 30 years ago I was in a small shop (I hesitate to call it an antique shop although everything was quite old) in rural virginia with my brother, who fell in love with a chair that looked just li...
  4. Very cool. How is it inside?

  8. WOW!! What a beautiful letter and extraordinary find. Thanks so much for sharing it.
  9. It has such great motion -- what a wonderful little piece.
  10. I think the signature might be Abrams rather than A. Brams. Lovely painting; really nicely done.
  11. Maybe the Army Corps of Engineers. The 13th Engineers Battalion has a very similar insignia on its crest (but a different number of rays). The rising sun is indicative of the spirit of the Corps o...
  12. very cool. It looks like it might have contained a bottle (from the impression in the lining in the picture but that could just be the angle).
  13. Great find. There is a really interesting piece about this work, The Kettledrummer, on Paul He did it in 1940, the year he died. Here is an excerpt from it: With Kettledrummer, Kle...
  14. Thanks all -- Dizzydave, I think you are right that it is the cornucopia, the symbol of a steward. I'm bummed to think it is a flag pole though and not a scepter. I was really enjoying the idea of wi...
  15. I have a few quite fancy little pins that I was told were lingerie pins. Some have small gem stones and all are gold and look similar to what you have. It looks like yours have a pin back . Pretty p...
  16. Thanks Kyra -- I think you are right. I will post a few other close ups I took of the man's portrait. It looks like there might be hebrew on his shirt but I can't really tell.
  17. Thanks Nicefice -- the green is what drew me to it too. And thanks for the loves Maredware, maritka, Nevada, Amatoor Pikr, Antique rose, Racer and Aura
  18. Now I feel I have really seen everything! And yes, it is really quite nice. Thanks for sharing it!
  19. I'm so sorry about Kyra. She looks like she was a very sweet intuitive dog.
  20. Thanks Racer. And thanks for the love Aura, LovelyPat, Nevada, Thomas and Efesgirl.
  21. Thanks Gillian -- I have my doubts too about it being leather but it seemed like a lot of detail for a plastic bag.
  22. Thanks for the info Celiene and Nevada -- I'm afraid I would bit the pearls off so I'll stick with fantasizing that they are real. I hope that is a happy memory for you Nevada. My Mother in law was ...

  26. And thanks Sean for the loves.
  27. Thanks Amatoor -- the zipper inside is metal but has no makers mark I can see. It is definitely pretty old. Thanks for the love.
  28. I just love the photo of your family farm -- it looks like a naive painting. What an amazing photo. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  29. I can practically hear him snoring softly.
  30. How big are they?
  31. AmericanPaul -- I am reposting this in relation to your posting of an Arabic (?) bowl -- look similar, no?
  32. It looks Persian to me. I am going to repost a tile block I posted a while ago, looking for some info -- the faces are very similar as are the lines. Really lovely. Are there three nobs with holes ...
  33. Gorgeous!! Save it for the 4th of July
  34. I have a set that are red ware with a thin white slip over them. I am looking at them as I write -- they are in my bedroom on the mantle and remind me of my children although neither resembles either...
  35. The birds are beautiful and I love the blue of the base.
  36. Thanks for the tip -- I have my air conditioning on so cold right now everything feels cold against my cheek!
  37. Amazing wild and graceful. Thanks for posting it!
  38. Wow -- that's a tough tale but I'm glad you found the Ray family. Changing your name in the U.S. for a reason such as yours is not that hard and in most states (if not all) can be done without a law...
  39. what a gorgeous dish -- even the makers' mark is beautiful. Sorry I can't help you solve the mystery.
  40. Solved thanks to Scottvez and Gillian and to you too Nevada. It is a mishmash of medals and badges that make no sense at all but it looks very official, sort of. :)

  42. you are welcome and yes, the seascape is very nice as well.

  44. What a beautiful photograph -- it looks like a painting and just about the best way to spend an afternoon.
  45. Amen to all that.
  46. I really like the stormy landscape painting. I found two V. Hoffman paintings that sold on live auctioneers, one of which looks like it might be by the same artist.
  47. Thank you Saulso for identifying this as a photogravure. And also to Aura, Antiquerose, Fortapache, caperkid, Blunderbuss, Windwalker, Nevada, and Thomas for the love. And yes, Antiquerose, I agree,...
  48. Solved! Thanks to Bonnie (Efesgirl) and an additional thanks to Nevada for leading me down what may be a very expensive path to other works by Taitu Bargain.
  49. Boy do I love the crowd at CW! Reading this exchange is like being a fly on the wall at a high-level university. And to think, I tumbled onto all this history because I thought the bowl looked cool....
  50. Beautiful -- I love turquoise and gold together and the seed pearls really make it even more special. I can't wait to see it post Kyratisation.
  51. See more
