  3. i love fruit bats - or as they are known in australia - flying foxes! however, yours has the most terrified face i've ever seen on one! poor thing. i think he died of a heart attack.
  4. thanks Kevin. i think it is for dispensing a pack of cigarettes.
  5. Thanks artfoot and Anik. luckily i did have a comfy sofa and a blanket / pillow for guests.

  7. Thanks Kevin. it's from one of the Indonesian islands - known for the most beautiful ikats.
  8. very cool!
  9. wonderful!! i don't know why i can't 'love it' anymore? a glitch maybe?

  15. thanks Newfld! it kind of is adorable and it's kind of scarey too.
  16. interesting!
  17. i think that this is by Alfredo Ciulli - 1920s/30s/40s. That's what Guido Bitossi thinks.
  18. thank you jscotto, Newfld, and robin!
  19. try to find it here: http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/20thcenturyjapan.shtml
  20. fabulous!
  21. the side decorations actually look 18th century - which would make it Edo period. so do the lapids around the base.
  22. do a search on Kutani, or 'how to determine age or value of Kutani ware'.
  23. thank you Michelle! it is a very nice tile. i have another one they did which i like even more - with a peacock feather design. i also gave one of their Charley Harper tiles to my sister which she ...
  24. this is a very nice Kutani bowl from Japan. i think it is from the Meiji period, but possibly older. congratulations!

  26. That's a picture of a Ninja Buckeye i made. just me being creative with my photos.
  27. that's a very nice one too Mrstyndall! Calla lilies!

  31. i finally figured out that these illustrations are by Carl Link. http://thenic.org/portfolio-archive/illustrations-by-carl-link/
  32. thanks Newfld, jscotto, and Manikin! i haven't found a single one on the internet, which is shocking.
  33. i'm pretty sure that this is Chinese.
  34. thank you Bill! i wasn't familiar w/ his work before. but i'm pretty certain that this plate is different and more like the real monterey jade pottery. i didn't know that it came in the bluer hues b...
  35. thanks Caper!

  45. it looks kind of like a moreton bay bug which we used to eat in Queensland, Australia when i was a kid. they were really delicious!
  46. i'm not sure i see what you are referring to art.pottery. i don't see a line or bar above/below one of the letters. there's the three tide marks below it and to the side of the tidemarks, there is a...
