  5. Thanks Newfld! i'd been looking for a nice little one for a long time.
  6. i love the beard!
  7. i love rhinos too! i have a couple of interesting ones too: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/220583-very-large-woven-rattan-rhino--missing and https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/26369...
  8. i am happy that you have too many guests to look after you!
  9. All the best Thomas! I lost a very good friend last year - my x-wife - she died in my arms of a very rare form of cancer. The world has not been the same since she left it. i hadn't mentioned it he...
  10. dental instrument?! [god forbid!]
  11. Welcome to CW Vintageadvantages! please always post photos of the undersides of ceramic items - even if they appear blank to you. also, it's best to give each item it's own post, rather than doublin...
  12. any idea about this one?
  13. thank you Anik!
  14. thanks anythingobscure and Thomas!
  15. yes, i think that AnythingObscure is on to something. a horse bucket?
  16. i went back to the same place i found these baskets and found the cover to the large basket!
  17. also - thanks again watchsearcher! lots of good info!
  18. thanks fhrjr2 - great information!
  19. thanks Toyrebel. i agree with you. the balls flow so perfectly throughout it. i wonder how they got them inside it?
  20. thanks fhrjr2! possibly, but doesn't seem right for a bottle. it wouldn't stay inside and the shape isn't quite right.
  21. thank you lizzycbw!
  22. any idea what these are?
  23. but that's what the ring is for - tossing. they don't need to throw it like a baseball.
  24. sure it is. it throws great.
  25. that IS a badass collection!
  26. thanks Watchsearcher, blunder and fhrjr2! it's a whole lot bigger than a baseball - about 4 times as big. but it is definitely a monkey fist.
  27. BEAUTIFUL painting! that reddish tone of the wood on the back always makes me think 'Italian'.
  28. wow! thanks kaudet!
  29. this is a photo of a Pullman Porter! nice find!
  30. monkey fist nautical knot. used for tossing the lines to the docks from the ships.
  31. nautical knot?
  32. beautiful! but it's a rooster, not a chicken!
  33. thanks beth and bill! i found a ton of them here: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Fenix+Raku+Pottery&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_odkw=fenix+raku+pottery&_osacat=0
  34. i was told that this is raku from south africa.
  35. those shallow holes near the chest are from where pebbles fell out of it.
  36. i think she is too Anik! i have many garden sculptures - old and new and this one is not made badly at all. there are no airholes in her anywhere. this was probably made with a sand mold.
  37. No idea Mrstyndall.
  38. thanks artfoot. i forgot to mention that this is nearly 10 inches across.
  39. Thanks bill! fhrjr2 - i'm always clicking my heels... to no avail!
  40. thanks Broochman and Newfld! any idea as to who made this?
  41. this is my favorite recent piece. i think it's very cool looking and to hide it in a garden will be really cool.
  42. thank you truthordare! any idea where it was made?
  43. thanks Hunter - me too!
  44. despite appearing 'blank', it's important to always include a photo of the backside of all ceramic objects in order for us to evaluate it's history.

  46. this has been confirmed as an 18th century - pre-Peranakan plate - made in China for the Thai market. it's a really good piece.
  47. thank you antiquerose!
  48. thank you Newfld!
  49. thank you Mike78!
  50. thanks Newfld!
