  1. My mother gave me a set of Coro and that was it! I was hooked.
  2. It is gorgeous.
  3. The dolls that I had look exactly like these and they had lead feet. We had to buy a new mother because the original mom's head fell off. The replacement mom had hair (wig) rather than just the cerami...
  4. As a child in the late 60's, early 70s, Santa Claus brought the boy and girl dolls to live in my new dollhouse. I think they are Caco but not as old as the 20s. My dollhouse dolls were purchased new f...
  5. Thank you truthordare
  6. Thank you Ms. Crystal Ship -- I originally passed on purchasing him and then went back to the store. I belong to a FaceBook group for vintage jewelry repair and am hoping I can locate a stone through ...
  7. Upon closer examination with a magnifying glass, Volia! It's marked "Coro Duette" Thank you everyone who pitched in and commented.
  8. I had to go look up a picture of "deer by the waterfall" and after doing so, have to agree with Ms.CrystalShip -- fabulous!
  9. Very pretty!
  10. Yes it does have a patent. I will research it
  11. But what if I want to keep it Broochman, how would I clean it?
  12. Ms.CrystalShip -- thank you -- I will take a look.
  13. When I dressed in suits for work (in the 80s) I wore a lot of 1928 jewelry. 1928 is the brand, not the year (I'm not that old!) Many of their pieces had that pattern on the back of the jewelry. You mi...
  14. Thank you PhilDMorris I don't know much, but I know not to get rhinestones wet. I once cleaned a brooch with rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip as I was instructed by a CWer. LOL I can be taught.
  15. I have a similar one sitting on my desk at work right now. I often use pencils.
  16. I knew that game as "Kim's game." The name is derived from Rudyard Kipling's 1901 novel Kim, in which the hero, Kim, plays the game during his training as a spy. We played it in Girl Scouts.
  17. Shareurpassion -- thank you for the information. Why is it so bad to use silver polish on silver? Is it too destructive to older pieces? (I took your advice and got the excess polish off.)
  18. It looks to me like the pattern for 1928 jewelry. That's no help! Sorry!
  19. Rescued a lab mix almost three years ago -- He's the best!
  20. The earrings are marked STER on the piece that holds the stone/glass and on the back of the screw.
  21. Scottvez thank you! I thought perhaps the case was from that era because I seem to recall seeing something similar on antiques roadshow. Thanks!!!!
  22. How can I determine what the earrings are made of?
  23. Thank you MsCrystalship
  24. Celine — thank you for the information. You made my day!
  25. I don't restore dolls but when I find one in need of TLC I buy her. I then list her on my Etsy site for a reasonable price, knowing that someone out there will buy her, restore her and keep her out of...
  26. She looks like a Mary Kate Ashley Olsen doll. Try googling that...
  27. Thank you Broochman. Where does one find patent numbers?
  28. Thank you Newfld for the compliment! Gillian, I very much appreciate the link. I have several pieces to clean so I’d better get busy. Thanks again.
  29. McCormick have office in Maryland -- did he ever work for them?
  30. Yes I agree but SOMEBODY has to support my estate sale habit! Lol
  31. Thank you for the compliments. I can't decide whether to sell or keep.
  32. A FaceBook group that I joined thought this looked like an Artisan Raving Beauty doll (she IS very pretty). Your thoughts please....
  33. I am late to the party but I love your collection! The Christmas mouse on ice skates made me smile. I owned him as a child. Hmmm....maybe I should check my jewelry box, he may still be there...
  34. Hi TallCakes -- thank you for the input. It sounds like it's been manufactured as a reproduction of the original if I am interpreting your comments correctly. I appreciate the information. Thanks agai...
  35. Hello Time Travller, thank you for the info. Much appreciated.
  36. Lucky! Lucky! It sounds like the right person found that brooch! Good luck with your hunt! They are gorgeous.
  37. Did you see the other doll I posted Manikin?
  38. Thank you Manikin I was hoping you would know.
  39. Thank you Newfld for your kind comments. She is very pretty. I wish I was an expert at doll restoration.
  40. Thank you for the info Newfld
  41. Very pretty! I especially like the sculpting on the wings.
  42. Thank you for the compliment nutsabotas6
  43. I have several vintage brooches that belonged to my aunt and were gifted to me upon her passing. I love wearing them. Put a piece of eraser or the plastic piece that comes with pierced earrings betwee...
  44. Thank you for the information nutsabotas6. When did the manufacturing change from the starburst type to leaf -- referring to the back of the pin. I thought that the back of the starburst (the way that...
  45. I love the personality that comes through on the dog. The owl is unique. I have not seen anything like him before...
  46. Hi nutsabotas6-- thank you for the information. Wasn't sure if I should get them wet intentionally.
  47. Hello Kyratango! Thank you for the information. Hmm...she may not get this bag, I may keep it for myself. Thanks again!
  48. The outfit that your Tammy doll is wearing is the very hard to find "Fraternity Hop."
  49. Cameosleuth -- thank you for the information. I always wear it with an eraser stuck between the pin stem and the clasp -- just in case!
  50. Celiene -- ICK -- I will definitely not look it up on the web and I swear I will never purchase anything with fur again. Thanks for the information, I appreciate it even if it was a downer.
