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. This was Welz. I hate when this happens. My uncle, who was an old-time antiques dealer, was more philosophical. "It makes the rest of them a little more valuable", he would say.
  2. Nice one!
  3. Cool find - have you tried to play it? Here it is from Youtube - Good song!
  4. EAPGD's time frame is correct. Often sold as "Kayserzinn", the metal ware of the J.P. Kayser & Sohn foundry is well-known to Art Nouveau collectors. More can be read here - https://senses-artnouveau....
  5. Before they were The Eagles, they were Linda's back-up band.
  6. The Stone Poneys - dang Kindle has a bad habit of changing my spelling. :+)
  7. Great voice - I've been a fan since The Stone Ponies.
  8. Here's an interesting tidbit regarding bluegrass and percussion - Back in the late 1960s, The Dillards thought they would update their sound by adding a drummer. The first drummer they used was a then...
  9. Thank you Thomas. Bill Monroe is often credited as the "father of bluegrass" but I think an argument can be made that Charlie Poole's unique banjo-pickin' was the real dad.
  10. "Don't leave your records in the sun. They get all wavy and they just won't run." - John Hartford
  11. I'm running on memory here - I don't have the Zanesville book - maybe art.pottery, or one of the other knowledgeable contributors will weigh in. I recall a Zansville line of bulb pans, some with buttr...
  12. Zanesville.
  13. Often called "alienware" in the marketplace - this vase was made by Ditmar Urbach of Czechoslovakia. It dates from the 1920-30s.
  14. Fantasía verde?
  15. They look Japanese. Are there any markings on the undersides?
  16. Thanks Craig, a second time through the article made that a little clearer. The turmoil of those times is astounding. I can only be thankful that I haven't had to live through anything quite like it.
  17. I love these old Kays. The sound is, shall we say, unique.
  18. Fascinating read - thanks for making it available to all of us. One question comes to mind - the article mentions "the crisis of the 1930s" and having to shut down because of it and I'm wondering if t...
  19. Wow! Three great pieces!
  20. The glaze on your jug is generally referred to as "Albany slip", a type of clay that was used as a variable brown glaze on early utilitarian pottery. There are probably regional experts that may be ab...
  21. Dennis Weaver, if you are not aware, was primarily an actor. He is probably most remembered as Chester in the Gunsmoke television series.
  22. Have you listened to it?
  23. I'm a bit unclear about the marks here. Three marks shown on three red bases but only two red pieces are shown. Do these marks coincide with the pieces shown somehow or are they just general marks tha...
  24. These are great - super pics - good work.
  25. Thank you racer and larksel - I have seen the same piece as the one in the link with blue winding. Thanks all for the views and loves.
  26. Thank you Michelle. And thanks to all for the views and loves.
  27. I wondered about that but figured it was just a couple of scratches. I looked at it now through my loupe and, sure enough, there is an I=I inscribed.
  28. Thank you Anik - I appreciate your assistance. I've ordered the Skrdlovice book. :+)
  29. Thank you for this. I have suspected that many of these small bowls were intended (and probably marketed) as potpourris and sachets. This helps reinforce that notion.
  30. You're quick - thank you Thomas.
  31. Thanks Karen - good to see you back at the party.
  32. Cool effects box! There is definitely a market if it fires up and works.
  33. Thank you Anik and welzebub for the help correcting my attribution.
  34. While awaiting further confirmation I did catch a glimpse of a very similar vase in the same colors gathering dust in the museum catacombs here -
  35. Thank you Anik. I am far from fluent when it comes to this modern Czech glass. Your enthusiasm leads me to think you know much more about this than I do, so please let me pick your brain a bit before ...
  36. Thank you Peggy....and thanks to everyone for the views and loves.
  37. An encapsulation of the bubbling primordial ooze - nice.
  38. Thomas my friend - it's probably not too surprising that I find this song almost as irritating as the Kars For Kids commercial. :+)
  39. Thanks Malkey - always good to hear from you. Thanks everyone for the love.
  40. Thanks Phil - looking at your two vases in the links I would tend to think two different makers - which two, I couldn't say. Also, I see what look to me to be very similar shapes on pieces with ename...
  41. Hello Dali!
  42. I just noticed this song was written by that incredible little doughboy, Paul Williams. Have a good year Thomas.
  43. I used to deliver junk mail to their apartments buildings in Downey.
  44. Sorry for being late to this discussion but your attribution should probably be reassessed. I have looked at the auction house link provided. If you compare the evaluated item with the picture provide...
  45. Thank you Kevin - same to you!
  46. Thank you all - Happy New Year!
  47. Nice one!
  48. I wish they still made these now.
  49. Excellent - thank you.
  50. Thank you. It is difficult to draw any conclusions from looking at two-dimensional images and I'm still pretty new at making connections. I would like to see more of the "snake decor" - thanks - you c...
