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. Nice color.
  2. We all need a little high time.
  3. This was produced all-white on purpose. The entire "Dawn" line is pictured in all-white in the 1937 Roseville sales brochure.
  4. It is Roseville. The pattern is called "Dawn" and it dates from the mid-1930s.
  5. Fair enough. The titan in me runs on beans.
  6. Thanks Vy - you're helping me stay alive.
  7. Only the friar is shown in the book and I've never seen any of them so I really have nothing else to add. Doesn't look much like a caballero though. Good find amigo.
  8. Who wouldn't want one of these? I hope you can make it work.
  9. To quote from the GMcB book by James Elliot-Bishop - "These bottles were made for a Napa Valley winery that commissioned them. Unfortunately, the winery never used them and they remained in crates unt...
  10. Thanks Karen. "Humpen" is a name given by collectors. It is a German word that works conveniently for English speakers but actually translates as beaker or vessel. Humps, hobnails, and overshot frit w...
  11. Thanks Karen - I'm glad I'm not the only one to nerd out over such details. Thanks to all for the loves.
  12. Link to sklo42's vase -
  13. Thank you Scott and Marin. I think you are correct that your vase and mine were likely made in the same place. Your vase probably glows all over and not just the leaves, I'm guessing.
  14. What you have here is the top part of what was called a "Sanitary Chick Fount". The bottom part is a flat bowl a little larger than the opening. They were made in four sizes. You can probably do an im...
  15. Thanks to a couple Ebay users, the potter of the vases signed Singleton has been identified as Rita Singleton.
  16. Phil Silvers was not really a musician but he did practice playing a trombone in his back yard much to the chagrin of his neighbors.
  17. Excelsior Pottery, Trenton, New Jersey, made from 1879-1909. Very nice.
  18. Hilarious. I had an antique shop for 18 years and my garage often looked like this. Now, the garage is still full - you'd be hard pressed to get a bicycle in it - but it is a bit neater.
  19. Good find. As you might imagine, these "Petalware" pieces were easily damaged. The vases are especially hard to come by. If you are unfamiliar with Sierra Madre, it is in the Los Angeles area.
  20. Mexican - 20th century.
  21. Great piece of glass and your philosophy is spot on. Merry Christmas.
  22. Good post. Thanks for adding another piece to the picture. I showed up in the middle of the discussions about this Royal label. Maybe when the label was first discovered someone suggested that because...
  23. I rather doubt that he has made a living from his pottery. It is just one of the several things he does. He once told me that he made enough money from his fiddling videos to buy a Mercedes, which sou...
  24. Thank you Manikin and to all who enjoyed this post. Alés says "I think all these vases are from ES&C. But it is only my opinion based on the used shapes that occur in several decors that were made ...
  25. I wish there were documents.
  26. I'm sorry - The "Zig Zag" I was referring to was the shape, not the décor. Nor was I insisting this be attributed to Kralik but that there should be evidence to confirm whatever attribution.
  27. This decor has been shown in the quintessential and ubiquitous Kralik "Zig Zag" shape which, unless you can show where Steinwald used that shape, I'll stick to the assertion that this is a Kralik dec...
  28. Lately there has been a tendency to reassign much of the product that has long been attributed to the Wilhelm Kralik Sohne firm to the firm Ernst Steinwald & Co. Recently uncovered documents seem to w...
  29. This looks like Empoli (Italian).
  30. Cool photo - looks like you get your shadow to carry them now.
  31. Charming - 1960-70s I suspect.
  32. Beautiful calligraphic decor - what a nice piece of glass!
  33. This is a valid Pacific "Hostessware" mark of the early 1930s. As the line developed over the next decade, the mark was replaced by the more familiar circular mark.
  34. All is good amigo.
  35. La vida es una playa.
  36. OMEGA! Always enjoy. I love the wall.
  37. Bless you Marin - be neither afraid nor ashamed It is the insecure that suffer most.
  38. Thanks Ales - I had a feeling you might. I enjoy watching this get sorted out.
  39. Thanks Phil.
  40. All naval ships have bells. The larger bells usually have the ship's name; smaller bells (like yours) sometimes have the year the ship was commissioned as identification. A ship of that age could eas...
  41. "Time is a vapor" - I may have to use that line somewhere.
  42. Also in the synopsis, Steinwald and Mayer are cited as manufacturers, Rasch is cited as a refiner. All three companies apparently had experience exporting to the US.
  43. Not to pick nit here but ... In the tax reappraisal, in the case that mentions Ernst Steinwald and Co., it is the Customs Dept. that is being sued. Steinwald is only mentioned as providing an affidavi...
  44. Both Napco and Lefton were importers. These figures are a Made in Japan knock-off of a Hedi Schoop design.
  45. There is no doubt that, judging from their cover illustrations, that there is a good deal of similarity between the Steinwald and Kralik products. Even more troubling that the crimped fan vase you poi...
  46. Is it not possible that both Kralik and Steinwald purchased cages from the same supplier?
  47. The signature is ZBS and your original seller was correct.
  48. Excellent pieces in an excellent decor - good purchase.
  49. Excellent use of your stimulus money. :+)
  50. For those of us who don't have access to that reference, maybe you could scan and post the applicable page?
