  1. Oh wow! I did not expect that! Thank you so very much! I'm pleasantly surprised, so I should probably have it moved to a different category.
  2. Thank you, antiquerose! Acquired from a lady who loved collecting "expensive" vases (according to the family). When she passed away last year, her family donated about ten of her vases to a local sh...
  3. Btw, the inside is a deep purple color. But looks almost black in the picture.
  4. Btw, he stands a little over 11" tall and weighs about 3 lbs, 10 oz. Thanks!
  5. Lol! I'm going to be adamant about one thing. They are definitely not a tourist souvenir. However, your comments are really getting my wheels turning and I thank you for that. You mentioned stabiliz...
  6. Maybe these pictures of the arrowhead will help. Just a note: The pictures make the cloth and string look lighter/whiter than they really are. They're actually pretty dingy and the cloth is pretty ...
  7. I meant to say "deeper into the bamboo" not deep. The metal arrow itself, from tip to end, is approximately 6 1/2" long. Also, now that I'm looking at it again, the string your seeing use to be wrappe...
  8. No, not a tourist item. I think what your seeing as "thick" is the breakdown and/or "swelling" in material combined with the fact that the metal tips are loose enough to move thus making it appear th...
  9. Also, what you can't see in the picture is that two of the arrows are complete. The one on the right is the most intact. The "bamboo" (maybe I'm calling it wrong but looks bamboo to me) on the one on...
  10. They aren't iron scrap slivers. They are fashioned into arrowheads but maybe the angle of my picture isn't showing that as clearly as I think. Yes, they worked with metal; however to my knowledge, mo...
  11. No, not made by the family. Relatives were collectors of native American and primitive artifacts but I never was. Never saw metal points? Well, they exist. :)
  12. Peter, I never got to thank you for this. I've looked until my head has spun but I'm just not adept enough to pinpoint it. Perhaps one day. Thank you!
  13. One other thing. It never had any fringe. Thanks again!
  14. AntiqueRose, thank you so much for the great link and kind comments! Thank you all for the love!!
  15. Thank you, Zowie! I appreciate your comment!
  16. Thank you, Sean, for the correction! I knew that, too! My fingers type faster than my brain can think!
  17. Mary, thank you so much for your kind help! I sincerely appreciate your effort and it looks like I'm on the right track.
  18. Ho2cultcha, thank you! I'm going to look that up.
  19. Wowsy Woosy!
  20. Wow! <3
  21. Thank you all so much for your generous comments! Valentino, which one are you talking about? Phil, that's very good to know! If I have a bead bracelet or necklace, I should just search signed earr...
  22. DrFluffy, that's so awesome! Yeah, that's what I'm going to do. I don't wear much of it and we're prepping for a move. My favorite (sentimental value) pieces I'm going to keep.
  23. Thank you! That took me a good 3 full days to sort. :)
  24. Thank you so much! I will take your suggestions to heart.
  25. No need to apologize. This is exactly what I need to learn. I'm copying your comments and placing them on the necklace so that I can have a point of reference for future purchases. Yes, I love Nati...
  26. Hahaha! That's too funny, GeodeJem. Now if only I were a scientist.
  27. Lol, Inky! I'm going to be looking a lot closer at my glassware from now on. Interestingly, I accidentally found it when I was doing some research on my Blenko bubble vase (which I knew was Blenko) ...
  28. Thank you so very much, DrFluffy! How ironic is that! :D
  29. I should probably add that it was in a basket with a lot of plastic 1980's jewelry so that's probably why it got ignored. I realized what it was after giving it a nice cleaning.
  30. You're welcome to be as nosey as you want! I welcome all comments. But no, I did not. I bought it about 10 or so years ago at a garage sale of all places. I can almost remember the house because I...
  31. Thank you GeodeJem. Yes, I think so, too.
  32. Oh, thank you! I had guessed it to be from the 60's so it appears to be a little younger than I believed.
  33. See more
