  2. I think that your nice little box is from Czechoslovakia.
  3. thank you truthordare! you sure did find it!
  4. thanks truthordare. it is Japanese and it's not a gold but a brown band which is typical of Kakiemon.
  5. you're probably right on that shareurpassion!
  6. welcome to cw ejmeade15! we really need to see a photo of the base of all pottery in order to know anything about it - even if it appears there's nothing there. thanks!
  7. screamin' pollitos!
  8. i should have cleaned it off before taking pics of them. look what i found in the bottom!
  9. thank you artfoot! you are quite the pot of knowledge!
  10. i bought a pair of these recently. i'll take some pics and post it when i get a moment.
  11. thanks fhrjr2. it's mounted on a plaque which is part of a game i've seen before. ??
  12. i think that this is Taisho - 1920s.

  19. i love the watch fob! wonderful!

  21. i'll check it out Dave. i love Crater Lake too, although i've only been there once. Very interesting place!
  22. thanks Trey and matisse!
  23. Thanks again matisse! i knew that it was a rich lady and an attorney!
  24. thank you matisse! good sleuthing! thanks shareurpassion, Trey, and keramikos too!
  25. i love the 'plant entrance' and big 'exit only'!
  26. i can almost hear the mosquitoes!
  27. it certainly wasn't the oldest farm, but it does have what was the largest barn in the country for over 100 years.
  28. Was the farm in NH? these look an awful lot like some of the wallpaper removed from my sister's 1765 brick farmhouse. There were many layers of different wallpaper dating back to around 1810-20. So...
  29. the stool is about 24" tall.
  30. so would that address on Howard St in SF be just a retail outlet? it seems like the cost of bringing furniture all the way from the east coast at that time would be somewhat prohibitive, which is why...
  31. Careful flhrjr2! Reticular retribution can be pretty tricky!
  32. thanks for the great info Keramikos! very helpful! they look vaguely familiar, but only vaguely to me. thanks again shareurpassion and Newfld!
  33. thanks shareurpassion. i agree. i wonder what kind of printing technique was used?
  34. hmmm! i hadn't thought of dumbo when i look at this piece. i think it's more likely based on a tribal design. but interesting observation Lauren.

  36. thank you for this! i hadn't seen it till now.
  37. dats a wery ewal wabbit!
  38. i have a wheel exactly like these!

  40. thank you Sean and Kevin. I think so too. i wrote to Wolf via his agent, and i'll let you know what he says when i hear from him. if i don't hear back from him via his agent, i'm going to go throug...
  41. i remember seeing these lined up in the rafters of our sugar shack - before it burned down many years ago. that was during the 1960s.
  42. can you post a shot of the underside?
  43. cool grouping! captures that bit of feeling. SEP and Boy scouts and flags.
  44. very nice!
  45. thank you keramikos! these are really nice - particularly if you love whales like i do!
  46. you are right Lauren! It is a sperm whale. thank you!
  47. and that is the point, valentino! thanks for commenting!
  48. thanks valentino! it's for a large mantel or altar, i believe.
  49. Thanks Mrstyndall.
  50. thanks purvis, Golgatha and Thomas! i found that these larger ones are sold more individually rather than in pairs, thankfully!
