  1. wowza!!
  2. i agree with you 100%, rene.
  3. me too!
  4. if auction prices mean anything, i think it is! i sold it on ebay and it went for around 700.
  5. what do you think rene?
  6. the base with the three little feet reminds me a lot of some of Peter Voulkos's work.
  7. thanks rene. i've always liked it enough to keep it out of my storage.
  8. thank you rene! i hope it is Tongzhi.
  9. i know Watchsearcher. It sounds unbelievably frightening - just going through the forest at the time, but her tone does change throughout the story and she does gain quite a bit of respect for Native...

  11. thanks again art.pottery! you do have a quick eye!
  12. Thanks Alan2310. i actually collect mortars and pestles and have dozens and dozens of them. what are the weird handles for? it seems like it would balance on something very well.
  13. thank you fhrjr2, Newfld, and awemazed!

  15. thanks rene! this has become my favorite bowl to drink tea in. it's much prettier than it looks in these photos.
  16. thanks rene!
  17. i wonder what rene has to say about this one?
  18. i have a similar one - Kiyomuzu-yaki (Kyoto Ware) Kashiki (dessert bowl) with Kochi glaze by Famous Unraku Heian. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/260330-kiyomuzu-yaki-kyoto-ware-kashiki-dess...
  19. Ikebana?!
  20. Awaji potters were amazing at copying art pottery from around the world during the first quarter of the 20th c. Teco, Gouda, majolica, Moorcroft, etc...
  21. This is late 19th/early 20th c. a very good plate!
  22. i WISH i could find out more about this. i've got it mostly clean now - just a little more scraping to do.
  23. no, you're right. it's a new piece. nothing special.
  24. thanks Lauren!
  25. thank you Newfld, racer, Broochman, Lauren and lptools!
  26. this is the retablo i previously posted here: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/278226-very-large-wooden-nicho-used-in-processi
  27. these are very interesting retablo. i think they are New Mexican retablo which differ from the Mexican ones which are almost always done on tin. The New Mexican ones are usually done on wood, which ...
  28. Thank you Newfld. what do you think they were used for?
  29. Thank you Peasejean!
  30. thank you PackRattatouile! welcome to CW! thanks also mikegotit and rene!
  31. thank you for taking the time to impart your knowledge rene! i get a lot out of your comments. the rim retains remnants of gilding which don't show in my photos.

  33. exploring your creek looks like loads of fun!
  34. thanks Rene. I just added a pic of the inside. I hope you are feeling better very soon!

  37. thanks Phil.
  38. perfect for you fortapache! i was [and still am] fascinated by everything dinosaur-related!
  39. now i know what it is. no, this wood is much heavier and harder. it polishes like stone.
  40. thanks share! Okimono is not a type of wood, but a figurine. they can be made of anything. i'm not familiar with monkey pod wood, but will check it out now.
  41. i found one of these 'stakes', 'clubs' a few years ago and finally figured out what it was after someone told me here at cw!
  42. beautiful, very clever piece!!
  43. nice one!
  44. found it! Bodia Cambodian Apothecary
  45. thank you AdeleC!!
  46. the quality of these is very good, but they are made from pretty soft paste - making them very chippable.
  47. thanks rene, Share and Phil! the plot thickens! 'Nicho' means cubby or cabinet and retablo is a painted scenario - traditionally a narrative from a saint's life. they are used to pass on the storie...
  48. no, it just has a deep foot rim.
  49. thanks Manikin! lots of people tried to talk me into selling this, but i gave it to my niece.
