It is nearly impossiRight now in June 2019 my eyesight is so poor I am legally blind until I can get an op in November or December, so I am trying to speed that up. It is nearly impossible to be on this site for a time.although I am trying I have total use of all my photos and all items shown on this site are mine. I can take a picture with any other item to prove my point to show that I own all items. If you do not like it, or want to cause any trouble on my pages, as some people have tried, particularly Sean68, or Alan231, 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. 1960's. Traditional style.
  2. It is hard to date as so many of them were made into the 1950's to 1960's and even up to 1980's. Traditional styles like this never really had an expiry date. I have the chairs and they never had scre...
  3. Actually there were 3 brothers. Mathurin Moreau was the most famous and a lot of his sculpture did not have to be vetted as he was given a special title that he was "beyond competion". I show one of m...
  4. Very Deco, love that its Sterling !~
  5. Its in the Italian manner but the figures they carved are definitely some new ones particularly on the top part. However, if a person wants one they get a lot of repros in at auction. A lot of times h...
  6. Love the butterflys, what a collection !~
  7. Yes, I do think so, Dean. If you need pics to post an ad I can send some to you. But put an ad on kijiji and see if you get calls -- I am putting together 3 ashtrays but won't be able to finish them f...
  8. I wanted to collect bakelite early on but my knowledge of what to look for did not permit it. I am glad you have such an amazing collection !~
  9. Cool, egyptomania all the way !~
  10. Its actually a french theme sculpture which had nothing to do with America's Centennial. Made in France, the boy or man figure was often used in sculptures depicting industry with a wheel beside him....
  11. I love the Aztec zigzag effect !~
  12. I have seen these before, I don't have time to check my books, I know I have seen the signature before and these were made of Spelter in France. No owner would scratch their name on a sculpture unless...
  13. Weiss could make some of the finest prong set jewellery which is top class compared to the glued stones they set in their later pieces !~
  14. What a great piece it would make for a base for a bronze figurine, absolutely beautiful !~
  15. Not a chandalier, but possibly a lamp fixture, of medium quality as the decoration in top class would be much sharper, but still a great piece. I would love to see it repurposed in a lamp !~
  16. The girl is wonderful and is based as a copy of the antique German KPM plaques which usually have a beauty painted on them.
  17. Wonderful to use it as a "collector's Cabinet". They are rare and far between as far as finds go, and the collection of bugs I see in the third pic make it more ideal and packed with beauty!~
  18. I have seena lot of slides but even worse are the negatives being reproduuced and sold so you get confused even more.
  19. Very nice even if Chinese.
  20. The Venetian style mirrors they make are quite spectacular and the small beveled mirror parts they make rival the old ones. I have several of these and the backs are the same as yours and the wood is ...
  21. I believe it is from the 1990's and comes from the Philippenes. They use the same "makeshift" style backs and wood but the quality beveling of the mirrors make it definitely from those islands. They m...
  22. Yes, Eileen. I made a mistake when I said it was japanned.
  23. Thanks ho2cult, yes I imagine he was hated then, but the curator was one of the nicest girls I have ever dealt with. Gotta love her !~
  24. Probably around 1860 to 1900 or so. Very nice condition and I believe one of the Irish crafted this. The carving definitely is.
  25. One of my favourites that I have of this design is done in mostly alexandrite stones and appears to be a one of.
  26. In the Siam Red I think I have seen many more japanned than not. Japanning is considered by collectors of Sherman to be more of the elite workmanship that Sherman was known for. There is a lot of mist...
  27. The baby was my first Rollei !~
  28. I love the side by side comparison of this ICONIC advertising piece. I believe any Rollei lover would trade his eye teeth for this gem. I am in total envy on this one as I believe any camera lover wou...
  29. Especially love the photo, what a gem !~
  30. Very envious on this one as lamps are my passion, pretty much more than anything. I love it but would maybe look for a better shade... a brass one would do well. Superb !~
  31. All the ones I have found were in Canada and made by Canadian companies in the early to mid forties. Later in the early 50's they used a poured molten glass mix or slag glass to get the colours in the...
  32. Very nicely made and we are not allowed to give values on this site, as per the rules !~
  33. Great piece !~
  34. The colour jumps off the screen. Magnifique !~
  35. I am surprised almost to see this set not Japanned. I have the same bracelet in a deep Siam Red with a black jJapanned back. It is one of the best bracelets that Sherman ever made. The rose or pink c...
  36. I have this set in a "periwinkle blue" colour. It is a very desirable set from what I have learned about Sherman. The opaque stones are rare for Sherman so every desirable piece is a Gem. Love this on...
  37. My contact is carmascot@hotmail.com - although slow right now on going back to all the messages I got while sick.
  38. Great to know she got this so long ago and she has it now. Sherman was started after ww2 as so many during that time when things were finally looking up. A great piece !~
  39. The stones I love, where they developed the RIVOLI RHINESTONE to perfect the shimmer to no end. A lot of Sherman cufflinks for instance used these stones !~
  40. Just super gorgeous !~
  41. I am jealous as Miss Val, great find !~
  42. I used to collect these metal mirrors and still have some. The detail is good enough to make it a fine piece. likely from the 40's to 50's. congrats !~
  43. Wowsee !~
  44. You always have the best collections of D&E to thrill us with !~
  45. Its called a bridge lamp, the decoration kind of takes it over the top !~
  46. Gorgeous photos show how beautiful that clarinet looks, total bling !~
  47. Mystery solved. These were made in the period of 1968 to 1971 and later. This onebis around 1069and likely made in Italy. I used to go to garage sales to buy some for the marble if it as round and not...
  48. measurements ???? floor to top of table ?? is usually around 17-20 inches ?????
  49. I can tell what this is, but the owner can-t say if the white top is marble, can someone enlighten us ?? Or maybe dimensions ??
  50. This brace;et is quite special. I am nearly blind right now so writing this is hard and there will be mistakes, likely. There aare two types of setting where both sides of the stones are shown by diff...
