I discovered a pair of these, though painted differently, on an old auction site. The only information they gave was 1930s and Czechoslovakian but nothing more. I am still looking for more information...
Thank you again for the information. This is far more than I have been able to determine or find. It is very helpful and very kind of you. I appreciate your time.
Thank you very much for that information. It’s exciting to learn a bit more about this little box. And thank you for your continued research. It also gives me a place to start searching as well.
Thank you for the information. I will contact the appraiser and see what information he may be able to share. And thank you for the link - I will look closely at the pics I have.
Greetings. I just re-read my original post and I am not sure where you saw mention of an arrow at the top of a T. The mark on my pottery piece is DW and it was identified as Design West. It has a numb...
Greetings. They do appear to be solid cast as they are rather heavy and because of the wire and the lamp pipe. I can't swear that they are cold painted but for some reason it just doesn't feel like a ...
Thanks for checking. I found nothing either. Jewelry and watchbands on etsy, ebay etc., but no company info. Odd......
Thank you so much.
Greetings and thank you for the information. There is no markings on the bottom. The only information that I have is that the man who originally owned it traveled to Russia in the late 1970's - mid 19...
Thank you tanasho - still, the fact that all of the JYOKA that I have looked at in the files you've linked all have pottery bases leaves me questioning if that is what they are. Did you hear back from...
It is indeed Boucher! After an even closer inspection, I found the Phrygian Cap and the initials MB slightly under the edge of the pin hinge.
Thank you vetrai050. I believe that is correct. Your help is much appreciated.
Valentine097 - thank you for your reply. I actually don't think the lapis is dyed however. The unnatural blue you see in the photos is my fault as I was trying to enhance the piece on my computer so t...
I got so excited but alas, it is a false alarm. I checked it with a jewelers loop and it is just a tiny bit of solder. I thank you for your sharp eye and quick post but the search goes on! It did insp...
Thank you for your help. I didn't really find anything on the Lincoln Charitable Society but I did find a small mention of the Lutheran's Charitable Society during the Depression - but alas no imagery...
Iced Tea or Water Glasses
I sort of solved my own mystery. I found these exact glasses listed in a book called Depression Era Dime Store Glass. It doesn't give a name of the manufacturer but it identifies the glass as Artist C...
I bought those old monster models when I was a kid - Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, The Mummy, Creature from the Black Lagoon. Wish I still had them....
Thanks to both vetraio50 and CanyonRoad. It is a piece by Robert Kolden. I contacted him and indeed it was a piece he did around 1982 - 1983. Again, thank you both!
Thank you so much. I never would have thought Italian. The look is very similar tho and it inspires me to continue researching these pieces.
Wow! Thank you art.pottery. You are amazing. After looking up Design West Stoneware pottery I must say the glaze on my piece is a uniquely beautiful and unlike those on similar shaped vases. Maybe it ...
Thanks for posting the picture. The glaze on my vase is very similar to the Nokomis glaze but the marking and pottery body are very different.
Thank you both for the posts. It is absolutely not Nokomis by Red Wing. That was my original thought but I was told by a Red Wing expert that it wasn't one of their shapes. Is there anyway that I can...
PhilDMorris, thank you so much for your reply. It's sad that so much talent passes thru history unacknowledged, lost and sometimes forgotten. I so appreciate your feedback. Thanks again.
Thank you all for your information and help. You make this site so exciting and educational.
Thank you all for your help - it's like a mystery to be deciphered by the clues. Exciting to be on the hunt for information.
Thank you so much for your help. It is most appreciated. I've done some research as well and found a couple of the same shell vases but with no paper label and no info.
Thanks art.pottery. You know your stuff. I have many pieces of pottery that I have had in storage for several years - some I know and some I don't so I will be posting those I need help identifying. T...
Thanks to artfoot and art.pottery! You are awesome
I believe you are correct. I think it's a bit big for a candle holder but I can see that at one time it may have had a bowl of some sort that fit in the middle. Thank you for your comment - sometimes ...
It has a bowl on it so I doubt that it would be for cigars or cigarettes. They would stick up and not out
Thank you for your reply. I tried to take a better photograph of the mark and have posted it but it is still not all that clear because of the glaze. I checked out the Awaji pottery and marks but what...
Wow. Thanks for all of the great info. I will try the Scrubbing Bubbles tip. I do realize that bakelite is plastic but so many times I do see people calling something bakelite when it is another form ...
Marios, is this glaze a CELADON? I've seen celadon glazes in a multitude of green shades but never in blue. Is this color and style specific to a certain region of China and does it have a specific na...
Greetings and thank you so much. I happen to have a Russian keyboard with characters on my computer and it is indeed Cyryllic. Unfortunately the characters wouldn't type on this page so I am still le...
Identified!!! Art.Pottery commented on one of the other unmarked pieces I put on here and suggested Ralph or Lorene Spencer - and that indeed is what this bowl is. Many thanks Art.Pottery
I'm not sure about this particular piece, but I believe that you identified the other piece I have displayed on here. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The glaze and everything is almost identical, but...
Thank you Sean68 for the nice compliment and - WOW - a big thank you to TallCakes! I really appreciate the information and the speed.
Thank you so much for the information on my vase. I did just now in fact, look at it with a jeweler's loupe and there are indeed hair line 'cracks' along each dark line. And the identification as Chin...
I finally found out what these mysterious little figures are. These are replicas of black pottery tomb figures found, along with other treasures, in the tombs of the AGE OF CIVIL WARS period, 403-429 ...
I just heard back from the Knabstrup specialist. You were correct vetraio50 that it was made by one of the Hungarian artists - This lamp base was made by Lajos Mathe and is dated between 1946-1948. Ag...
Wow!! Thank you so much. Lots of great information and wonderful photos on the websites. I can't thank you enough for your help with solving the mystery of my little lamp base. I'm going to have it co...
How would I know if this is the older Duncan Miller version or the later Tiffin? Did they both do it in the light blue glass? Thanks
Thank you so much for your response. And indeed it is Duncan & Miller
Thank you. I really love them too!!
Thank you for your response. I just found a photo of an almost identical piece at www.pijpenkabinet.nl/PijpenkabinetP-E%20opium.html which is the website of the Dutch Museum of pipe smoking and collec...
Thank you so much for your input, and though I am absolutely not knowledgeable about anything military, I believe that you are right on the money. I too, spent some time trying to identify the insigni...
Turns out it is a mustard ladle.
I checked out Toddy Ladles and claret ladles and they have longer handles (this is only 4 1/4" long) and have an elongated bowl for pouring. Perhaps a small sauce ladle?
Thank you so much. This information is very helpful and you certainly solved the mystery for me.
