  1. Perhaps I am Covid-confused, but is this Collector's Weekly or Facebook?
  2. I came upon a similar item today at an estate. Now I have two and am delighted with them! Still do not know what it is made of. I find no similar examples searching (so searching for wrong thing) and...
  3. Yes, I agree, sounds like metal when tapped and does not "feel" like ceramic.
  4. Love it! I have one that my son gave me many years ago, but it does not have the tongue sticking out. Thanks for posting - a delight to see.
  5. Hi, Kutchi. Does it seem to have hollow legs as well? (Therefore not wood?) Not sure if there is a way to link the photos/comments on the ones Mark and I posted.
  6. Saw this post just now and it caught my eye for the large, blue/white stone as I just got some Larimar jewelry in the Domincan Republic and my Mother added to my set by giving me a lovely Larimar ring...
  7. Hi, Mark. So funny, I have another incredible elephant family figurine I have always thought was ironwood or ebony. After our posts I re-examined. It also appears to have hollow legs on the elephants!...
  8. Also, always helps to note measurements and weight. Does it feel hollow or solid?
  9. Cool Black Panther! There are a number of similar items listed on eBay - but not quite that large. Most are paper mache with leather covering. You should be able to find some hints and go from there.
  10. So beautiful!
  11. I've never seen limestone with the brown splotches in it like that. (We have lots of limestone here in central Texas.) It seems harder than limestone.
  12. Still hoping for some leads on the artist or gallery marks on this print. Any thoughts?
  13. Still hoping for some clues regarding this beautiful vase!
  14. Wow, Kyratango! Thank you so much. Mystery solved. So curious how you knew! Somehow, I do not mind the missing tube. :-)
  15. I agree, Watchsearcher, plus it is a hefty little item for that purpose. Still the only thing I come up with that has a similar wand. Checking for candle / lamp lighter, but have found nothing similar...
  16. I started searching again and now find similar, but none made of this material, items called kohl pots or kohl surma dani bottles that are Middle Eastern or Egyptian! They are make up bottles with a w...
  17. Thank you, Watchsearcher. That is so interesting!
  18. Thanks, Golgatha. My thought was older. Do you know any stone-like material with the brown splotches like that?
  19. Hi, Mark. I'm posting mine now. I searched more and found a couple of possibilities, none as detailed as mine or years. Lacquered covered brass, black bronze. Yours has a copper or bronze color at the...
  20. Hi, Mark. I have one similar At first I thought mine was ebony. Then realized the legs are hollow, but body seems more solid. Legs sound like metal when tapped. Mine is 5 inches tall, 1 pound 5 ounce...
  21. See more
