  6. thanks Toyrebel, Phil, Gc1975, and mp.kunst! yes, it is a balance toy - part of one anyways. this one is an original - not a repro - probably 70s. i might buy one on the above link - very reasonabl...
  7. the condition of this Stevengraph is perfect compared to other copies i saw online. the frame has a few little dings, but could be easily repaired.
  8. Thank you mp.kunst and truthordare - great info! i canceled my worthpoint script recently because i wasn't using it enough. if someone has a script, would you mind posting the value and date of the ...
  9. thank you fhrgr2 and MyCountry! i have some rust remover i might use on it. i'll keep my eyes open for Zudd too.
  10. thank you Newfld, truthordare, and Ms. Crystal!
  11. i think that this was a gift to donors of the drive to restore the Mural Room in the Sta Barbara County Courthouse.
  12. ha! unfortunate for some... maybe. it made me think of something a drag queen said to me when i was giving her a ride home many years ago. she was giving me directions and i asked her if we go 's...
  13. reminds me of an american version of Fornasetti in the 50s.
  14. i hear you can keep it in the white house if you get it there soon!
  15. and a much smaller one: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/241008-grabber-bird-on-a-barro-dulce-jarron--t
  16. thanks Newfld! have you seen my enormous grabber bird urn? https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/108569-very-large-mexican-urn--burnished-birds?in=collection-3602
  17. Now, we're talkin'!
  18. This is by Diane Winters who lives here in the East Bay.
  19. another post just reminded me that these are called 'Grabber Bird' pieces, although nobody seems to know why.
  20. love love love this piece!
  21. Thanks Newfld, Sylvester, and Cbill!
  22. thank you Lauren! i agree. it's pretty nice on the wall next to my desk as well.
  23. mushroom-grip rocking armchair.
  24. thanks Thomas!
  25. Tsuchiya K?itsu was very well-known for his involvement with the Shin Hanga [new print] movement.
  26. This is a 1936 Tsuchiya K?itsu print with the title Maiko no Hama (the Seashore at Maiko).
  27. thank you Newfld! it is kind of peach / apricot orange.
  28. Thank you Newfld!
  29. i found out that this style is called 'Hashish' as is the scent of the candle - which is pretty great!
  30. it would be great to see the back of it.
  31. Thanks LauraH. it has a brown rim, which makes me think it might be Japanese.
  32. thanks John and Trey!
  33. i kind of figured that too. i'll ask around up there next time i'm there.
  34. thanks buckethead!
  35. really beautiful collection!! gorgeous!
  36. could this may be a native American figure - like for the Dine? or is that crazy thinking?
  37. thank you maryh! i grow over 600 species of california native plants.
  38. thanks Thomas! i'm really glad i got these chairs. they are really nice in person.
  39. thank you Elisabethan! i really like this basket alot. it is a miniature of a laundry basket, i think. they would have to be really tiny mushrooms!
  40. Thank you Newfld. it has a very nice feel to it too - kind of an orange peel texture.
  41. Thank you Anik! anybody know what it is? the legs are really tight together and i almost feel like pushing them apart to see if i can get it to stand up, but i think it would break. it's very old.
  42. too heavy, i think. it would pull out.
  43. no problem! thanks Newfld!
  44. thanks Caperkid!
  45. Hey Thomas!!! Love your pot and your words even more! this method of painting is a cross between old spain and indigenous mexico. flowers and birds and birds and flowers!! from california to alaba...

  47. really great display!
  48. beautiful! and a new one for me - Les Benard.
  49. you are right about the lack of hole in it, although strawberries can take a lot of water and being so small, they probably won't rot. i thought monterey jade at first, then looked closer and i have ...
  50. that's a VERY tall vase! no playing broom hockey around it!
