  1. Thanks so much Kevin, Newfld, keramikos, bill and iggy! yes, keramikos that's my little lucy with her winter gear on - before my mom hemmed it in for her! 'saddlebags' gave me a good laugh.
  2. thank you kevin!
  3. thanks Hel1. Thanks kwqd. i think it's a little earlier than that - 1880s-1910. i agree that it does look dutch. it's definitely gouache - possibly watercolor too.
  4. thanks mp.kunst. it could be English or American. they were made exactly the same in both countries.
  5. thank you mp.kunst. not familiar with him, but it looks like his signature and his work.
  6. i agree Golgatha. must have been for a dollhouse.
  7. Thank you Gillian - you solved it! thank you too Mrstyndall!
  8. yes, that's exactly right Lauren. there is so much mythology around rabbits throughout the americas and the rest of the world. these are definitely magical ones!
  9. i can tell by just a thumbnail when something is from Sean! this is definitely one! nice piece and i like your collection.
  10. just beautiful gunnar nyland pieces!! gorgeous!

  13. thank you fortapache, Newfld and valentino! when it rains, it pours! i found another even better table today. i'll post it now.

  15. that's a new bauer for me! i really like it too.
  16. that's a very cute postcard!
  17. it looks like a wwII era trunk converted to a coffee table, no?
  18. this photo hurts my head.
  19. AGANO YAKI - Inotake gama.
  20. I think it's a Chinese snuff bottle missing the stopper. Nice 4 character mark!
  21. Thank you Williamhaney86!
  22. i got some interesting news about this piece. it is Aztec, from the post-classic period 1325-1521 - probably from the Valley of Mexico. The symbols on the base "4 ollin, 5 movement", the 5 cardinal ...
  23. Thank you keramikos! they are really lovely bowls.
  24. i think that this was in an old store in Chinatown. It appears to really have some age to it - maybe early 20th c?
  25. thanks Newfld and Lauren!
  26. can you take clear pics of the whole thing front and back with frame? also clear close-ups of the signature would help alot.

  35. which one is your dad? what was the troop number? my dad was there at Valley Forge in 1950.
  36. my collection is growing... one pot at a time!
  37. i should get a better photo. up close, you can see that it is truly laquerware and layered. not sure the terminology.
  38. thanks keramikos. i found out that it is someone's name in Japanese.
  39. any info about this weird little piece?
  40. there is no official mayan/aztec revival - those are just a few of the words placed on this style of pottery. I have a lot of signed Ladislao pieces - and this looks like one despite the lack of his ...
  41. wow! wonderful!! from the 1920s or an earlier Egyptian Revival period?
  42. thanks artfoot!
  43. thanks Watch!

  46. thank you artfoot, Newfld and rene! i really like the marriage!
  47. thank you truthordare and rene! i'm not sure what i'll do with it yet. enjoy it, maybe?
  48. i'm pretty sure that this is a fake. that brown stuff on it is like a glaze or stain put on to age it.
