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 frabbersnazz@gmail.com (Read more)

  1. I believe there are a couple incorrect assumptions often drawn from the information in the Butler Bros. monograph but this basket is not one of them.
  2. Occasionally there is a voice from the wilderness whose clarion call provides an answer for some universal dilemma. Not this time - this is a Welz basket.
  3. I see Said the blind man as he put down his hammer and saw.
  4. The white one is amazing.
  5. Glad to contribute. I hope this record has the same effect on everyone who listens to it.
  6. My yard attracts hummingbirds. They, as well, seem to like decorating their nests with blue bits.
  7. Turns out I did have one in my image file - similar to your orange one. Did you buy these in Europe?
  8. Youtube is a little thin for Bernie Green. This album can be listened to track by track here - https://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2008/07/more-bernie-gre.html
  9. Thanks for the love.
  10. Yes - thanks Iggy, thanks Karen. I get bored pretty quickly with the mainstream.
  11. Cool - I don't think I've ever seen that peloton decor before.
  12. Before I read the rest of this series of posts I just wanted to say - Good job. You might be surprised how many of us around the world have pieces of that wall.
  13. Breaking news - https://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2020/03/archaeologists-uncover-hundreds-of-old-beer-bottles-in-leeds/
  14. Yeah, there's some dust on the banjo. We did "Louie Louie" but I liked playing that. Actually, we had fun with "Gloria" too.
  15. You are a bell - ring loudly, ring true.
  16. Back in the late '60s I was playing in a band that was on the teen club and frat party circuit. There were some songs we had to know - "Gloria", "Season of the Witch", and "Ode to Billie Joe". I got s...
  17. Thanks for the links. Andre Popp wrote "Love Is Blue" - this album was a diversion for him as well.
  18. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBVcFWyXG7Y
  19. Don't tempt me Thomas. I'm sure I can drag out some more clunkers too.
  20. Yes, "Sooner" or Ozark art glass, made by a dozen or so small companies in the Arkansas / Oklahoma border area. Orville Hamon, of Scott Depot Glass, held the patent for this type of glass and is gener...
  21. In the '50s he was Freddy Martin and His Martin Men.
  22. I've been on High Street once or twice.
  23. Maybe it's a drool cup and the handles are for a strap to hang it around ones neck. :+)
  24. Surf's up Thomas!
  25. Thanks for the looks and loves.
  26. I live in earthquake country. I just don't worry about it, :+) but I wonder about tornado country - maybe you will have an answer. I wonder why people don't build domes (igloos?) instead of boxes?
  27. I watched this for two weeks knowing it would be a good investment - glad it went to a good home.
  28. About ten years ago I had nearly 1000 of these 1940s Big Band discs. When the property where I was renting storage was sold, I brought home as much stuff as I could but not everything made the move. T...
  29. Interesting looking pot - I'd like to see more of it. I doubt, though, that this is Ruth Duckworth's signature. Check this site for further information - https://www.themarksproject.org/marks/duckworth
  30. The fourth picture in this article shows the "Webbed" decor - https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/248164-kralik-molded-web-and-kralik-pepita-wh Row 2 in the fourth picture shows the same shape. ...
  31. My definition of folk music has a lot of wiggle-room in it but, in a nutshell, I think it has to do with the intent of the artist. If making money from the music is coincidental to the activity, it is...
  32. I'm just a cranky old cuss. It's not that I don't appreciate the role of groups like this in bringing folk music to the public, I just don't see it as "folk music" - this is Pop.
  33. I probably didn't say anything about Peter, Paul, and Mary either.
  34. Matthew Adams designed and developed the "Alaska" line while working for Sasha Brastoff. After a year or so, he opened his own studio where he expanded the line to include a large number of shapes and...
  35. Thanks Manikin - you are correct. Joe Houston was a jazz and R&B sax player - one of the many jazz and R&B sessions recorded by John Dolphin for his labels. He also recorded many of the local vocal gr...
  36. Thanks Karen - I love L.A. It's a funny place to live.
  37. Looks Japanese. Size would be helpful.
  38. Gotta love CCR - Bad Moon is one of the best rock songs ever.
  39. Georgia on your mind - good one Thomas.
  40. In clowns we trust!
  41. Good one Thomas. I'll try to have something to add for next week.
  42. Thanks Karen - I like the Gouda-style pieces a lot. I often wish I had kept everything that has passed through my hands. I've had quite a few. There are also Japanese knock-offs of some of the Ditmar ...
  43. I recommend searching on this website for most of the information you will ever want to know about your records... https://www.discogs.com/
  44. It all goes for me too. It has been a pleasure to make your virtual acquaintance.
  45. Just to publicly add my thoughts - I think that questioning the documentation provided by the Welz family is totally preposterous. I think that ignoring or dismissing Welz production is a fool's endea...
  46. I concur with CanyonRoad - this is Italian export ware.
  47. There are a few here - I assume you are talking about the one by the airport (LAX). I look forward to your story. By the way, that night at the Palladium to see "Tommy" - the show was opened by Poc...
  48. Yes, Troyan Pottery from Bulgaria.
  49. I saw The Who do "Tommy" live at the Hollywood Palladium back in the '70s. Keith was manic, Entwistle was dazzling, but I think Roger and Pete were nursing hangovers and seemed a little lackluster. Th...
  50. At any rate, not Andromeda.
  51. See more
