  1. I think Blunderbuss2 has it right. The Hudson Bay company traded furs with the Northern Natives in Canada and used Silver Coinage to pay them. They are not common and many Canadian Museums have examp...
  2. I have the same stick albeit in a more subdued palette of red/orange. I too have a penchant for single candlesticks. Bob
  3. Gillian! Forgot to mention that the Robert Held vase is signed “skookum” made during his time in Alberta. Thank you MALKEY, valentino97, vetraio50, vintagefran and artfoot for the loves. Bob
  4. Thanks Gillian! Over the eBay years I sold many examples of Robert Held glass creations. Travelling throughout Florida, I found many examples of his work in Antique stores and Consignment sores. Thank...

  10. Christopher Columbus is on the handle. It is a Knights of Columbus ceremonial Sword. K of C is a Catholic fraternal organization!
  11. Thank you Pete99 for the love. RER
  12. I posted the same dog facing left a few years ago in CW. Loumanal
  13. I still have it. Was it you that Id’ it? Haven’t been too fruitful in finding some nice art glass lately but I’m still looking.
  14. The lamp dates from the 1890’s and had a reverse painted “pretty lady” in the hollow stem that has dried off /peeled. It is considered a parlour lamp and the “Rosettes” design on the font is a common ...
  15. Thank you vetraio50, Mrstyndall, jscott0363, shareurpassion, fortapache, blunderbuss2 and Hel1 for the loves. RER
  16. Tallcakes! Thank you for the links. So they are most probably Spoon holders....it makes sense and the examples shown are very similar to mine. I am amazed at the possible age of them since they have l...
  17. I would say that it dates early 1880’s
  18. Thanks fhrjr2! What you see is actually the window in the pagoda and not an 11. The pagoda has two sections one on top of the other. The possible mark is in photo #4, section above the pagoda.
  19. Wow Kevin! Thanks a lot! I looked it up in Google, saw the exact marks for the Ottoman Empire and for 900 silver and saw other examples albeit not exactly like mine. I wish I had found a pair of the o...
  20. Thanks Vetraio50...are they silver marks and what would these items have been used for...goblets? age?
  21. Yes, I have the same vase but a taller elongated one. I uploaded it a few years ago and is still in my CW page. Look it up. Bob
  22. When I saw a hand like that, there was a doctor attached to it asking me to cough! lol
  23. The “gall” of that bladder doing that to you! It’s been 6 days so you’re probably back to your ole self....take care!
  24. Thanks Phil! I’ll upload it to show it to CW members before I finally decide. Bob
  25. Phil...wonderful set and also the others you uploaded. I picked up a complete parure this weekend and was contemplating either selling it online or at an Antique show that we regularly attend. This is...
  26. Love these smoker ashtrays...I collect them and uploaded a whole bunch of them here at CW. I can’t link them now since I am travelling out of town. Bob
  27. Gillian....my email address is on my page. Click on Loumanal
  28. Thanks AnythingObscure! It has gone to a good home where it is displayed in full glory!
  29. Thank you aura, truthordare, Broochman, AdeleC, hunterglee, fortapache, Newfld and vetraio50 for the loves. Bob
  30. Thanks Tallcakes! I had never seen a small one like this. Do you think that it was also made in Canada and is this size very common?
  31. Circa 1950’s
  32. It’s an early 1860ish or earlier whale oil lamp missing the double round wick metal burner that sits on the rim. Google it and you will find all the information you need. This pedestaled one is quite ...
  33. Thanks for the info Tallcakes!
  34. I picked up a covered “Harlequin” covered dish in this green satin colour on the weekend. It was also by L. E. Smith c1930’s (I think). Tallcakes, I found scarce Green “ CanadianNugget” cake platter t...
  35. Thank you rocker-sd, antiquerose, Lamplover78, sinnomore, hunterglee and Hobbsran for the loves. RER (Bob)
  36. Tallcakes you are still amazing! Hope you are still finding new treasures. RER (Bob)
  37. The mark looks like something that an owner would add to valuables in order to recognize it or identify it if it was stolen. The lamp would date 1920+
  38. Thank you larksel, MALKEY, sklo42, Radegunder, aura and vetraio50 for the loves. Bob
  39. Thank you hunterglee, vetraio50, fortapache, shareurpassion, Newfld, Ivonne and IronLace for the loves. RER
  40. Thank you Ivonne...it looks as beautiful in amber as it does in clear and in blue. Thanks for your input and love. Thank you also aura, vetraio50, Brunswick; and SEAN68 for the loves.
  41. Thanks Tallcakes! I did find a similar decoration on a Phoenix Rubina Verde pitcher so it certainly could be a solid lead. Thank you Mrstyndall and Blunderbuss2 for the loves. Bob
  42. Thank you sklo42....will look them up. It is similar to other vases that I have put away over the years so maybe I'll be able to identify the others. Appreciate your help! Thank you also Malkey for y...
  43. Thanks cameoboy.......very interesting possible connection to Loetz. Parkerhouse! Sorry I never got back to you...of course you can use the photos of the label and or the bottle for your purposes. By...
  44. One of my favourite colours......nice!
  45. Yes, a beautiful colour combination!
  46. From the 1930’s...this is really uncanny, I went to a consignment store yesterday and picked up this exact sans-lid planter ( I thought) and wondered how I would ever find any information on it. I ope...
  47. Reminds me of the praying peasant girl in The Angelus painting/ depiction by Jean-Francois Millet.
