If you do not like it, or want to cause any trouble on my pages, as some people have tried, particularly Sean68, then please leave my page and go to your own page !! Love to all. Embracing the energy within ourselves will bring all of us to a new understanding and valuing of life, a vision that inspires you to live and love on planet earth. Like a priceless jewel, buried in dark layers of soil and stone, Earth radiates her brilliant beauty into the caverns of space and time. I am absolutely fascinated by collecting ! I collect for my sister also, mainly Sherman Jewellery. I also like to collect Art Deco and car mascots, the older ones from Paris and UK mainly. Love to work on older photos and color my black and white photos. (Read more)

  1. Great deal !~
  2. The drink looks refreshing. No cats or dogs here !~
  3. Thanks Tigra for the love, appreciated.
  4. May be earlier also as in the 1930's but very hard to tell from pics, I picked 1940 more to be safe than anything. A beautiful winner any way you look at it.
  5. I had forgotten my books on the Sears catalog homes. In Canada for instance we had catalog homes also from Eatons which was another highly popular mail order business which made homes also !~
  6. No real value to them, rockers are a dime a dozen on this site, no one really collects them anymore. All wanting to sell. Why not look on ebay, go by sales, not by the greedy poeple who put big prices...
  7. Thank you SirWalter for more 1stdibs, cannot stand them.
  8. The butterfly looks much more delicate with the beautiful colours selected for the stones !~
  9. Sherman used double and triple rhodium plating at times. Overall the rhodium plating lasts a long time on most sherman pieces.
  10. Thanks again MrsT, appreciate the comment !~
  11. Gorgeous !!
  12. I bow down, you are right. This is a fantastic piece I am not familiar with at this moment !! It looks like there are purple and ab stones and some that look here like alexandrite !! Its an earlier pi...
  13. The detail is surprising good on this piece, wow !~
  14. Thanks Tom for the love !~
  15. Thanks Tom, if I would find the bracelet to match would be even better, even though I know that the necklace is more rare !~
  16. Thank you Tom for the interest in my posts !~
  17. Thanks Tom for the love, much appreciated !~
  18. Thanks Tom for the love, appreciated !~
  19. Thank you Tom for the love, much appreciated !~
  20. Thank you Tom for the love !~
  21. Thank you Tom, most appreciated !~
  22. Thanks ttomtucker for the love !~
  23. This reminds me of those old t.v.'s when they have an old program that makes it all so much more special, much as this clock has found its way of doing the same. I love the hand just about in her armp...
  24. Thank you EdisonsDaughter for your beautiful reply, it would have been nice to see that aerial photo of you grandmother's farm. I have always been drawn to others when they have those photos which are...
  25. My parents had some nice blonde furniture as it is sometimes called. Dressers, one with large mirror. Love that side table or beside table especially ! Unfortunaltely I had to sell most at my fathers ...
  26. I remember back in the day I used to (on these type of things) grease the back with sewing oil and fill with car body filler and I would get a pretty nice cast of a piece which I did on Egyptian type...
  27. It has findings like almost an end for a necklace, and at first I thought that it was a bracelet charm ! Beautiful !~
  28. I like that the top has a lecturn type lip for displaying or reading an open book. That makes it a serious library aquisition, absolutely spectacular !
  29. Fantastic and photos, especially the label. I never knew or had forgotten that they ever made them that high !! Wow !! Usually around 30 inches high. They are usually found in Great Britain. I see the...
  30. Thanks Mrstyndall, no I had no idea that it was sold out of Tiffany's and they thought the table was fr0m the 1760's. I bought the table in 2008 from Freemans auctions in PA. I was contacted by one of...
  31. I have been contacted by someone who has the identical side table as mine. Most definitely sold by Tiffany's NYC in 1908.
  32. Yes I agree, hardware is not that old at all.
  33. The upholstery label is probably newer and seems to be some simple velvet material. The chair is probably 1960's to 1970, contemporary, not really an antique style.
  34. No. it appears not to be her. She does possibly appear to be wearing a wedding dress, but thats all I get from it now.
  35. I would think its quite new based on the carving which is like a lot of pieces from Thailand. Unfortunately the style is based on so many different periods, there is no name for this kind of style. Th...
  36. It reminds me of a Countess who got into sculpture. There were some photographs of her from around the 1850's, I will have to look and see if there is a resemblance.
  37. Actually it looks like a 1940's colonial rocker. I remember seeing them particularly in magazines of the period and with a lot of colonial houses and movie stars seemed to have in their homes in the 4...
  38. Wonderful collection,super cool !~
  39. Great design, captivating !~
  40. Yes I loved the shade, I cannot remember how many times I had it, but one for sure, just love those chinese lounging under the shade too !~
  41. I don't know what you mean by " what the metal is but it's rams" ?? also where do you come from what state ??? That would help me greatly. Love the lamp.
  42. Wow ! Wow !! Wow !!!~
  43. I like Eileens comment, wonder if at one time it was black japanned ?
  44. The trouble with ebay is one seller told me that Sherman NEVER used foil backed stones. Actually 99% of stones are foil backed so I made it a point never to buy a Sherman piece from him, HE SOAKS ALL ...
  45. Myself I would "never ever" run it under water at any time. You run the risk, which is so easy to do, of "trapping water" under the stone which has the foil backing. That is why I suggest a pro, the ...
  46. I have a stone setter who is cleaning some of my pieces right now, she has lots of experience and does not charge all that much for cleaning, but takes a while to dry with several fans going when dryi...
  47. I always send it to a professional cleaner with EXPERIENCE ! Never soak it yourself as the the backing foil on the stones ROTS if it is not dried carefully and properly !~
  48. These are a treasure and must be fairly rare, I don't see any this color either on ebay right now !~
  49. I used to have a few glasses in blue and green, gave them away when I moved in 2008. Too bad, could have sent them to you.
  50. Back in the late 70's and early 80's a Hull piece was such a good find for its art deco designs and this vase looks so delicate !~
