I'm an older sort of poot that has been dealing in antiques and collectibles on some level for most of my life. For 18 years I had a storefront location, for twenty years before that I was regular swap meet seller. The shop closed in 2006 and I've been getting rid of the remainders ever since. Less a collector than an accumulator, I am not an expert on anything but I've seen a lot of stuff. This site has been helpful to me and hopefully I can occasionally return the favor. I appreciate your comments and "loves" for my posts here. Any further discussion - I can be reached at (Read more)

  1. Norleans was an importer based in (surprisingly) New Orleans, USA. Norleans is also the reasoning behind the possible Meito attribution. Prior to WWII, Norleans imported dinner ware and china noveltie...
  2. Most recent rumor I've heard says these may have been made by Nagoya-based Meito China (Narumi Seito Narumi).
  3. The top line is a series of numbers - below that, reads "Italy". This is decorative Italian Export pottery likely dating from the last quarter of the 20th Century.
  4. Gomer is a biblical name.
  5. Very cool. This is probably better thought of as a botanical illustration than as "fine art". Meant to be an accurate representation of a particular plant species, this appears to be some sort of Astr...
  6. This site offers some beautiful pictures along their interesting commentary on the glass of Empoli - Thanks all for the loves.
  7. Thanks Karen, and I agree that the multicolored piece is rather unusual. If you've got the room, Empoli glass can really make for some impressive displays.
  8. I think it a safe bet that this is 1950-60s vintage Japanese Export glass.
  9. Love this stuff, Thomas. Terry Snyder was involved in the first audiophile records as well.
  10. This was made in Japan - 1930s.
  11. In an attempt to answer one of my own questions I noticed that I had previously posted this item - - which I believe is ess...
  12. Thanks for this discussion. The last comparison is a good one. So not a new shape after all. I'm still convinced - either this is Ruckl, or it isn't. :+)
  13. Jericho - this looks like the same decor as the vase in the oil painting you posted some time ago....
  14. Finding and sorting out the various makers of Japanese exported glass is a challenging endeavor. Welcome to the club. Because all pre-WWII and most post-WWII Japanese glass exports were handled throug...
  15. Bauer - Fred Johnson rose bowl.
  16. Interesting. This sugar bowl is from a small line created as gift premiums for the Sperry Flour Company. As I understand it, the entire line consisted of a salt and pepper set, a sugar bowl. a creamer...
  17. Could be - thanks art.pottery - good decipher.
  18. Excuse me - 1924.
  19. Yes - the impressed mark shows that this is Rookwood production pottery (castware) vase #2562 made in 1926. This type of Rookwood production is not typically signed with an artist's mark (the reason ...
  20. Is that mark under the glaze?
  21. Zanesville.
  22. This looks more like Ryukyu than Kralik to me.
  23. Very cool Thomas. The "rough and rowdy" Jimmy Rodgers had a soft spot.
  24. Willy Picasso. :¬)
  25. Reading about Legras, I've learned this type of glass may have first appeared in 1890s catalogs but it was made until 1930 - still old but maybe not quite as old as I originally thought.
  26. That's a charming explanation of "chatelaine" - thank you for that. That Legras 1898 catalog is a wonderful document. Each of the many vases has a fanciful name. And you know how it works with this st...
  27. Thanks Karen. Just lucky on this one - I had been looking at the Legras catalog about a week before.
  28. Trust TallCakes!
  29. That's a wise looking cat. Your vase, by the way, if my memory serves me right (it often doesn't) was made by Anchor Hocking, part of the "Ruby" line - 1940s-60s.
  30. Thank you Peggy and Rene - you could very well be correct. I didn't notice it before 1999 in the catalogs I looked at but that doesn't always mean it wasn't there. It seemed like it should have been. ...
  31. I was hoping you got them too. I would have had to pay shipping to US and it still would have been worth it at that price.
  32. I bet I know what pair you are wondering about - I slept through that one too.
  33. Me too. I'm having trouble accepting "Spatter" as "Tango" - Tango-era using Tango colors maybe, but not Tango in my mind.
  34. Just to add about pairs splitting up - the seller of these had them priced separately.
  35. Thanks IL - I knew you were going to like these. And thanks for the links - your basket, especially, looks like it belongs with these.
  36. Excellent!
  37. I like the painting extreme left in the first picture - have you posted that?
  38. A lot of the old gospel-tinged country music just doesn't get the same sort of collector attention as the rest of the genre. Eddy Wayne and His Starlight Rangers were early radio stars out of Akron, O...
  39. Trojan cow?
  40. Thanks Ivonne - I didn't doubt this was Welz, the shape is unmistakable, but it is a décor that I don't see often.
  41. I'm curious - what was her attribution?
  42. This is most likely an "open stock" pattern meaning it was available to any customer and not specifically designed for any particular restaurant. The Wellsville backstamp on your bowl was used through...
  43. Excellent post Thomas - well said and right on!
  44. "The Complete Collectors Guide to Bauer Pottery" by Jack Chipman and Judy Stangler (1982) was the first book to offer an in depth look at Bauer Pottery and is still a good resource. "Collectors Encycl...
  45. terracottapot is correct - these are shown in the 1928 Bauer catalog, referred to as "hanging baskets". They were made in six sizes from 7 to 14 inches.
  46. When The Beatles wrote and recorded this song it was a pop tune - when Johnny Cash recorded it, it felt real...
  47. Excellent piece - I've been waiting to see this one since you posted the group shot. And thanks to welzebub for the ID.
  48. These ashtrays originally sat at the top of a metal stand that had four legs, a shelf below the ashtray, and a handle that stuck up through the hole in the center. I don't know for sure the manufactur...
  49. Peggy has one - so do I. We had a short discussion here a couple years ago. There is an argument that the mark ...
