Can you help me to figure out how to rotate the photos as well? lol
Savanarola! That's the word I was looking for! Thank you, thank you, thank you, vetraio50!
What a beautiful set, antiquerose!
I agree with Kerry. The Miss Piggy mug was given to me, new, as a gift, in 1980. I've seen them in the $5-$10 range in my area.
What an amazing combination of colours. Beautiful.
Beautiful! And thanks so much for sharing the story behind them. What an amazing treasure you have in these. :-)
Thanks, Sean and vintagelamp.
Looks like teak with slide-under leaves. Have you checked the underside to see if there are any maker's stamps?
Wow! Thanks everyone, for the loves!
Love it!!!! LOL
Gorgeous! The detail is amazing!
Beautiful. And so much nicer for you because you know it's history. :-) I have only seen a couple of these over the years. Definitely not something you find every day.
Is it possible for you to post a picture of the inside of the case showing the numbers as well as the movement?
Hi Wruthie! "IS" stands for International Silver. You can read more about it here: http://www.silvercollection.it/INTERNATIONALSILVERCO.html. :-)
You're very welcome. :-)
What names are on the dials? Unless it is a high-end or rare name AND in perfect condition, they aren't worth much at all. By high-end I mean Rolex, Patek Phillippe, Breguet, Breitling, Girard Perrega...
According to my book, Wedgwood began using this mark about 1910, but it doesn't say when, or if, it ceased using it. Wedgwood basalt pottery predates that by quite a bit. Here is some more info: ht...
It's a beautiful Wedgwood basalt plate. I'm not a big fan of Wedgwood but I find the basalt (black) so striking. I have a book on Wedgwood. I'll take a look and see if I can narrow down a date for yo...
Beautiful piece and unusual shape. Yes, the 8 means it's an 8-day clock. I took a quick look online and didn't see any similar.
If you love it, that's all that matters. :-) A treasure for sure.
This piece is stunningly beautiful!
Love amber and this piece makes it all the more beautiful!
So pretty. I too have a full-sized chair that is identical with the exception of the fabric - mine is white. My husband has suggested selling it a few times and I refuse!
I used to have one of these and had forgotten all about them until I saw your picture! Love them! Thanks for sharing.
Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful! I have a weak spot for old watches.
You can buy books in your local bookstore that will help you identify different antiques and collectibles, but they usually are very general in nature. It's hard to tell from the picture who made it -...
Nice score, vintagelamp! It is indeed a lustre and they still fetch a high dollar, even though the antique market as a whole is soft. I had a pair about 3 years ago that were white cut to cranberry a...
Spool. That's the word I was looking for scottvez. Couldn't think of the word for the life of me! Thanks!
Thanks for your help, aghcollect! Mystery solved!
I would definitely take Manikin's advice Lithaskye! How could this "dealer" possibly give you a value when he/she didn't even know who the maker was or what the pattern is? He/she has just pulled a n...
Thanks, Sean68. It is a nice piece.
This gorgeous! I've never heard of nor seen "buff-cut" stones before. I learned something new! :-)
My mom had the same one - there were more tips with hers so it could be that they were sold with different numbers of tips included, you could buy the tips separately or there are a few missing from y...
I could be wrong, but it looks like a man's valet that would sit on a dresser. So yes, a jewelry box of sorts.
Beautiful collection. And beautifully displayed. :-)
What info are you looking for seafarerpaul? I know a watchmaker he sells Hamilton watches in his store. With the books he has, I can probably dig up anything you'd like to know! Let me know and I'll s...
Absolutely gorgeous! Sorry, I can't help with an info. Very nice piece.
I have a blue one as well. I've never seen the golden one. It's gorgeous!
Beautiful! I love the colouring!
Love, love, love Royal Doulton Figurines! I inherited my later mother-in-law's collection and added it to my own. I now have close to 80 of them!
Or get together with a fountain pen collector. :-)
Wow! These are beautiful belleverre!
These are definitely applique scissors - I've used them many times with reverse applique. Reverse applique is like normal applique but the fabric that you want to show is sewn to the underside of your...
A stunning piece! Love it!
