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. I can't find a shape justification in the Peters & Reed book either (Sanford's Guide to P&R by Martha & Steve Sanford).
  2. Cliftwood is a good guess. It doesn't look right for Fulper to me though you can probably find better information about Fulper online than I have handy. I did go through the Muncie book (Collector's E...
  3. The worst band name ever.
  4. Thank you Malkey - always good to hear from you - and thanks to all for the loves.
  5. Thomas - I did see your comment. I think that whatever we can use to make music, be that computers or kazoos, should be used joyfully. I'm not concerned about humans using computers but I am concerned...
  6. Thank you Thomas. I read recently that scientists working on a project teaching computers to think for themselves had to shut the project down because the computers invented and began communicating in...
  7. Thank you IL - I would never have thought of black-lighting this. Nothing glowed green but the pale yellow spots lit up a bright yellow. Thanks everyone for the appreciation.
  8. Love the Kingfish.
  9. I'm still thinking that should be a Foster's instead of a phone. :+)
  10. It is sometimes difficult to tell them apart but I'm thinking this was made by either Artistic Potteries or West Coast Pottery - both California potteries.
  11. In clowns we trust!
  12. Thank you TallCakes for the pattern IDs. Thanks everyone for the input and loves.
  13. I'm sure welzebub has loads of documentation - he is a contributor to this site as well -
  14. Thanks Craig - I couldn't have done it without your help.
  15. Thank you, Kevin. Thank you, Thomas.
  16. If you are in America, you might search The Marks Project site - Why potters use these chop marks is a mystery to me - it's like they each think they're g...
  17. I should add - "Trovatore" translates as "Musician". Auction records show this as called "Mannequin".
  18. This is a de Chirico lithograph entitled "Mannequin" printed in a edition of 120 copies. It dates from 1964. Solid purchase - worth having it professionally framed.
  19. Little Bimini vases like this are very cool - you're going to make me want to start looking for them too.
  20. I'm in California and don't see a lot of the North Carolina pottery - art.pottery probably should be trusted on these.
  21. This shape is generally referred to as a "strawberry pot". I would suggest Monterrey Jade as the maker.
  22. Super find! There is some serious investigation currently being done into the early Jaru products. These plates are of 1950s vintage but, as far as I know, the artist has yet to be positively identifi...
  23. Thanks everyone.
  24. Thanks for the love.
  25. Because nobody wants to sell anything online that doesn't fit in a 12" box.
  26. Some of us here don't have the advantage of studying glass for the last 20 years. Personally, I have taken a liking to the Funk Brothers products I have seen and am just wishing that some of the accum...
  27. The shape of this jar, from my limited perspective, would fit with the Gebruder Funk style and I too would love to see an example with a label. If kairomalte has information about Funk that can be sha...
  28. Fear no art!
  29. From the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, Metlox Potteries produced a line of decorative figures called "Poppets" that were very successful commercially. As success often inspires imitation, similar figure...
  30. To Michelle007 and vintagefran (and anyone else interested) - Alhambra means "the red" in Arabic.
  31. Wendy gave her all for rock'n'roll. By the time The Plasmatics called it quits she was getting weekly treatments from a throat specialist. This did nothing to deter the developing Metal scene. She is ...
  32. Yeah you did - I saw the pictures. :+)
  33. I hope you live forever and never have to separate the pieces.
  34. All this and two Tartan Jugs - lucky fellow.
  35. These are a pattern called "Harlequin". They were made by Homer Laughlin Co. for sales exclusively by F.W. Woolworth's and are closely related to Fiesta.
  36. I'm no fan of CIA business either but my friend did alright - he married the Korean ambassador to Indonesia.
  37. I had an acquaintance back in the '70s that was an ex-priest who taught English in Indonesia. He had a similar care-free appearance. He worked for the State Department, and though I asked he wouldn't ...
  38. As you may have noticed, The Liberty Bell was the star, theme, and official logo of the Sesquicentennial. An eighty-foot tall lighted replica was erected at the fair's entrance. Thanks for the love.
  39. Hi Phil - please point - is there a link?
  40. I agree with Bill - Nelson Marshmallow cushions have upholstered backs, not to mention the incorrect cushion alignment. It's a safe bet this is not a Nelson.
  41. As paper goes, the '70s vintage computer paper is high quality paper. Recyclers of the time paid a premium for it.
  42. I'll venture a guess that the smaller one was made by D&M, but that's just a "usual suspect" for that sort of surface. It can be dizzying trying to sort out some of these tile patterns but a good refe...
  43. I suspect a lot of us see these as Czech. Gebruder Funk (1909-40?) was located in Teplitz. Prior to WWI that was Silesia, a part of Bohemia (HRE), so there is a close association. After the war it was...
  44. Bowie was a consistently compelling artist - good collection.
  45. It's those simple pleasures that are the most fun. Thanks Karen. It looks like bb2 has been sampling some too.
  46. That's a Thank You - Bill. I should always add a smile :+)
  47. In those idle moments when some random tune pops into your head, or at least my head, that jingle is just as likely to be The God Song or Infant Tango from this album. I guess that's why they have tho...
  48. Thank you Malkey. The Residents have their own graphics department named, as I'm sure you will appreciate, Pore No Graphics.
  49. These hand vases are winning me over but I still think of ice cream when I see them.
  50. This is an intriguing shape - I posted one just like it about a year ago - Ignore my first impression - I currently have this vas...
