  1. nice solve Kevin!
  2. Yes mary, i think you are correct. it's still a nice piece though. i'm one of those who adore everything connected to Rennie Mackintosh!
  3. good question AnythingObscure! i think that it was used as a sacristy - for the priest's sash and other tools of the altar - not Catholic, but maybe Episcopalian?
  4. wonderful lamps!
  5. Thank you Newfld and Lauren! great information Lauren.
  6. typically, Bencharong pieces are made in China for the Thai [and Nyonya] market, but these new ones are made in Thailand.
  7. this is a new Bencharong piece made in Thailand. i have several new ones and a couple old ones and really like them alot.
  8. thank you Mrstyndall and courtenay!
  9. Mexican, i think - either Aztec or Mayan tourist ware musical instrument.
  10. This is a Chinese snuff bottle with a Qianlung mark [but most likely apocraphyl].
  11. beautiful!!!
  12. i just added some better pics - no glare. i really love this little drawing!
  13. thanks Anik! i love it too.
  14. wabi sabi!
  15. thank you very much Watchsearcher! i think they are really lovely too and it kills me not knowing who made them. i'll check out Bade's work.
  16. Haha Toyrebel! a dead one in a basket is worth 2 in the bush or something, no?
  17. Thanks Newfld!
  18. thanks Toyrebel and Newfld!
  19. Back east, this would be considered a 10 pointer, but we count them differently there than in the west. All eastern deer are white-tail.
  20. isn't he though?!
  21. They kind of look like Japanese dragons to me. ??
  22. This could be quite a bit older, but better and more photos are needed of the underside, the inside, closeups of the lock etc...
  23. yes truthordare - that is interesting. i would never have thought this was a woman's robe. i thought only the emperor himself can wear this yellow color.
  24. thank you Newfld, truthordare, and Mrstyndall!
  25. it's definitely not an Ansel Adams. the focus just isn't there. not sure about Stanley but there is a written word on the back which i'll post later. it says something like Envias. ??
  26. i have one like this too and have never figured out what it is, so i made it into a birdbath with rocks in it.
  27. i'm not sure what it says, but i'm pretty certain that it's Korean. Whenever you see this kind of crane on celadon, it's Korean.
  28. Aoki Bros?
  29. Thank you Dave!
  30. Thanks Sinnomore. Are you saying that you believe it is an Ansel Adams photo? not sure what you're getting at.
  31. yes - Japanese Imari Ginger jar is right. made in the Meiji period, i think. really beautiful piece!
  32. really gorgeous piece of pottery!
  33. i just posted it framed in a frame i found on ebay. i think it looks right. what do you think?
  34. thanks Sean.
  35. this is probably the best quality piece of Benares Ware that i have. Some of the elephant bells are good too.
  36. the info is pretty easy to find. just google 'chinese knot'.
  37. Hi toracat! haven't heard from you in a long time. hope all is well. i think that this pipe was made in Benares, India for the Turkish market.
  38. This is also Benares Ware - early 20th century. Decent quality.
  39. these are also Benares Ware - excellent quality - 19th or early 20th century.
  40. This is also called Benares Ware - decent quality but pretty new.
  41. These are also Benares Ware - good quality and early 20th century/late 19th century.
  42. This is also Benares Ware - not too old - 50s-70s.
  43. This is also called Benares Ware - not too old though - maybe 60s-70s.
  44. I just found out that this type of engraving with enamels is known as Benares Ware. This is a particularly good quality one.
  45. does anyone know what kind of stone this is?
  46. The tassel and cord is actually called a 'Chinese Knot' - even in Japan and is loaded with important symbolism. The lotus is the most important flower in Chinese symbolism, whereas cherry flowers are...
  47. Sombre-NON! but really beautiful/trippy!
  48. really beautiful piece! i'd get it appraised by someone reputable and ask for it to be appraised with and without a nosejob.
  49. thanks Newfld!
  50. Thanks Newfld! this one's a keeper for me.
