The School House with the bell tower I went to, last girl to graduate in 1966 from 6th. grade. Wonderful childhood I wouldn't trade for anything! Imagine! Having the beach for your playground!

  1. Classic Eisenberg...beautiful!
  2. Rabbits! These two look to be ready to take off at a moments notice... Their colors are splendid together, perfect addition to your menagerie!
  3. I love anything to do with mythology...the statue of “Birth of Aphrodite” is beautiful, to say the least. The story of her birth is a little unsettling, as the Titan Cronos showed no mercy to his Fath...
  4. The first idea that came to my mind was ...”The Three Caballeros”! Yes, I know there was no chicken, ( a duck ( Donald), a rooster (Panchito), and a parrot (Jose’), but with his wonderful sombrero, he...
  5. I adore these little baskets. Jenni, you found a very pretty one. I’ve seen them in “browns” and “AB”, but so prefer your beautiful blues. In fact, I don’t believe I’ve seen one in “blues” until now...
  6. The finely pave’ set rs on the leaves are just the right touch to make this lovely pearl set stand out...something Trifari was/is famous for. One step above in design! Stunning set Ken....
  7. Amazing “old” brooch! Great info Elisabethan, we learn something nearly everyday thanks to people like you here on CW. Kudos!!
  8. This is indeed a lovely piece of Pell... And our Jenni knows her stuff when it comes to Pell and many other designers.... Stunning find! And welcome to CW!
  9. The coloring of this little turtle is so inviting...beautiful “sunny” color. I love turtles, I have a tiny sterling turtle pinned to the inside of my purse. Very old, my Mother replaced the stone wit...
  10. Such cute little doggies... These Scottish Terriers you don’t see much, at least not where I live. They are fierce little dogs, they can even go after badgers! And remember they are a Classic Monopol...
  11. Ever cross your mind what the makers were thinking when they came up with these marvelous designs...a koi fish!? The enamel & colors, as always with Jenni’s jewelry, are pristine. Fantastic “Fantasy” ...
  12. I zoomed in, as always, and this lovely bird is in remarkable shape for being nearly 80 years old. Very smart to get a signed piece since there are so many repro’s out there. ( even then watch the sig...
  13. Watchsearcher... That’s a lovely depiction! Thanks for the input. Eisenberg Originals made many figural pieces, this being a pretty rare one in my book :)
  14. And who wouldn’t be attracted? This is a stunning piece, that looks well loved and well worn. Now it’s your turn. Fabulous Coro Flower brooch! ( I still want the deer by the waterfall) Ha!
  15. I believe it’s a longhorn... Rams don’t wear cow bells :) I know this is a very old post, so I’m bringing it up since we are talking “Eisenberg” today. Isn’t this a fabulous piece!! How about it g...
  16. Maureen, the first maker to come to mind was Eisenberg! Ken has many beautiful Eisenberg pieces, and he has dated a couple for me. So he knows his Eisenberg.This is a a lovely old piece, reminds me o...
  17. I’m afraid I have to renege on my “term” for your stones. Though they do have two colors, they are not givre’ In givre’ stones the colors are more swirled together, to make a marbleized look. Your sto...
  18. Wow, now this is something we don’t see everyday! This is amazing. I love the patina on the brass lady and the cornucopia is beautiful! I just can’t say enough! I love it!! :)
  19. I love it when the maker blends textures such as this lucious set... the rhinestones are still sparkling after half a century! Great set Ken!
  20. I’ll take the “cut-glass syrup pitcher with sterling silver lid” please... for $5! Amazing but $5 back then was a lot of money, no?
  21. The “rope” looks like nylon. I used to Macrame back in the day... everyone I knew had one of my wall hangings. That being said when knotting nylon that’s exactly how it comes out... like on your neckl...
  22. Very pretty brooch... If you need a technical term, the stones are called givre’. This term is used for stones of two colors blended together, kinda like a marbleized look. Your brooch looks to be ...
  23. “I guess they now come out in their walkers”... I know you’re joking here Bill Some of these Old Time Rock & Rollers are still going strong. My Daughter & Son- in-Law saw McCartney at a sold out crow...
  24. Very cool... I remember “alligator clips”. And I still have my husbands’s Stash Pot...no pun intended :)
  25. Ever wonder how far Led Zeppelin would have gone if John Bonham hadn’t passed? Such a waste :(
  26. Your little brother looks very mischievous...lol And the little boy in the bottom right with curly blonde hair is adorable! I was close to my cousins too.. Still am!
  27. They’re beautiful and two of them to boot! Score!
  28. It’s a very cool piece. I just read the story...so sad, shameful
  29. Such exciting finds and for cheap! The cobalt is beautiful with the gold painting.... ( I need to move)
  30. A “Sweet Petite!” Kudos!
  31. Such a sad story... When someone passes, it’s like their items are thrown to the wind. You say the family sold their home, where were they when these two old gentlemen needed care? Same old story.. ...
  32. Yes, we do learn new things on CW all the time... thanks for the “Plique ‘a jour info! Wonderful find Bill! This butterfly “soars” above most you see, Unique, nice!
  33. What a great post! Great timing too as Jay North just had a birthday August 3... Back in the day when TV shows were wholesome family fun...
  34. It would be great to see these old photographs...if we could see them :) How about one at a time in the light...
  35. Ok, I'm confused... Born 1803-died 1914? That made him 111 years old? Revolutionary war vet? Born 20 years after the end of the Revolutionary war??? 1775-1783.... Huh?
  36. I know this Kramer piece! I should of known Jenni would bring him home, as he is a playful piece, perfect for your collection! Your sea-blue ( that is the color of the ocean all right) is quite life-...
  37. I always take the time to zoom into the pictures on a jewelry post. They show the beauty of the piece so much better that way. This a brooch that has it all...design, craftmanship, and beauty. I love ...
  38. Oh, I just love this piece! The pink and white marbled coloring is breathtaking. I just love it, I do! Her stance is perfect. Fenton did an amazing job. Fenton is one of my favorite glass makers. ( ...
  39. Wow, four inches is large for a figural. It's a beautiful pussy-cat, with her emerald eyes, and fancy "ruby" collar. At first I thought it was a Bauer, as I know you collect her, does she have pieces ...
  40. Roy...made me laugh!
  41. Bill, you know cats are territorial. Just yesterday morning, I was drinking my coffe, and my cat Mocha let out a noise that sounded like it came from the depths of hell. No kidding, she is five years ...
  42. Elisabethan, luckily my Father kept a lot of information about our family. He tried for years to find relatives in Brazil, to no avail. Family history is an important thing, it's where we're from. My ...
  43. Treasure Tex, these true pioneers of my area (San Luis Obispo County) had passed long before I was born. It's my Grandmother whom I really wished I had known. All I learned from her, I learned from my...
  44. Hi Elisabethan, Yes, "DeLizza & Elster" made musical figurals among others, I, so far, have nine of them... Still looking for the electric guitar. Very HTF! And I'm sorry, I should not assume ever...
  45. Anyone ever tell you how clever you are? This put a smile on my face after a long day... I love the rabbit art. Ever see “Rise of the Guardians”? Great animated movie. There’s a rabbit who says, “I’m...
  46. They’re lovely! Foil beads & stones are very sought after. D & E made several pieces with them... called them “Cat’s Eye” Splendid bead necklace!
  47. I love it... reminds me of my hippie days ( good memories!) Thanks for sharing Bill, very cool!
  48. I’m totally amazed at the different types of barbed wire. I just thought they were all the same. I was looking through your posts and I really enjoyed seeing all the different kinds. My family lived i...
  49. I just remembered I have a small fur clip from 1940 with the exact same color of enamel and stones, but much, much smaller. It's my oldest piece, like this one, nearly 80 years old. Doesn't it just bo...
  50. The focal point topaz stone really catches your eye, but I love how the design has what looks like "cones" in the mix. True Trifari Classic! A word about the "joint & catch" pin mechanism on this br...
