  1. I can see the glass. In some places the paint is scraped away inside and outside and the bottom is not painted on the outside. Very easy to see that they are glass.
  2. Thanks, sklo42!
  3. Who doesn't love Gumby?
  4. Love old bricks with writing on them. Not a collector, but I have quite a few.
  5. I have one exactly like this. It was made in India. I think I may have picked it up at World Market 8 or 10 years ago. As I recall, I paid around $10 for it.
  6. updated photos.
  7. What are the dimensions? Is it enameled copper?
  8. That's what counts, you liking it, that is. I am seeing a lot of Vietnamese ceramics, lately.
  9. Is it just that the glass shade is broken or is there more damage? There are a lot of nice antique ceiling shades on ebay. You may even be able to find a similar shade. Search for "glass ceiling shade".

  14. Switchblades are illegal to possess in some states. If American made, probably made before 1955.
  15. Striking ring!
  16. Yay! Looks like the edit is working again. I am going to get some black paper today and see if that will do the trick. Light source doesn't seem to matter.
  17. yw, fortapache. Meant to say sticky throttle, not clutch. It was a dragger, not a driven sidecar, but it did ok in the snow. The sidecar acted like an outrigger. Pretty stable. The fellow who loaned i...
  18. Thanks, TallCakes! I have another of these reproductions by LE Smith. I know where it is and will dig it out and post it, by and by.
  19. Apparently, this is called a "Cranberry Optic Iconic" vase.
  20. I saw a bike with sidecar on the road yesterday. Figured out the make when I saw it but have forgotten what it was. My first experience with a sticky clutch was on Dneiper with a side car on a snowy ...
  21. How tall is it?
  22. Thanks, wladyj111! Nice to know that they weren't "only children"!
  23. Dang! Looks like scottvez already posted one of these!
  24. @blunderbuss2 - Classic Firearms has a great deal on these right now, for $279 and $20 shipping in the US. I already have two of these but my gunsmith did some machine work on the frame when I had nig...
  25. I vote scarf clip. Striking piece.
  26. They look like aliens..
  27. Zukek? Zuxek?
  28. Great colors.
  29. They look like prints, but very pretty. If you buy a lot of artwork, I recommend getting a couple of jewellers loupes. You can buy Chinese loupes of acceptable quality for a few dollars on ebay.
  30. "I put a spell on you" is a great song. I read that SJH once opened a concert by rising out of a coffin on stage. He was a unique character. I can only listen to Robert Johnson in small bursts. He was...
  31. I forgot to mention that Herb painted "August Morning" the morning after a thunderstorm and the mist was rising off the fields as the sun warmed the ground. He also thought about titling it "Stormy Mo...
  32. Thanks for loving this thing! I finally got it clean, and it is actually quite striking now. I may not recycle it. The metal appears to be painted brass or copper. aura truthordare vetraio50 for...
  33. Thanks for loving my oddball cobalt vase! aura Ben Brunswick vetraio50 fortapache
  34. Thanks for loving my Jeanette Glass bowl. I have it on a table by the window, which is a high cat traffic area. Curious to see if it survives! When I finally settled down and bought a house 20 years a...
  35. Thanks for loving my hobnail vase! Still picking it up and rolling it in my hands when I pass it, until I find a place to put it. Brunswick aura Newfld TassieDevil fortapache Toyrebel TimeTra...
  36. Thanks for loving my vase! aura Newfld TassieDevil fortapache TimeTraveller Mrstyndall
  37. I got it, truthordare! It was probably an expensive soap dish and I don't think that I would want to risk it in day to day use. It is also a bit flat for a soap dish. A pin dish would be a better use ...
  38. Thanks for loving my pickle jar! aura Newfld TimeTraveller fortapache
  39. Thanks for the comment truthordare! Hard to believe that it survived its travels. Thanks for loving my perfume bottle! valentino97 Radegunder AnythingObscure truthordare Vynil33rpm Ivonne ...

  41. What I call "sofa art", i.e., something to hang in the space over the sofa.
  42. Looks like this was an "art factory" piece from a business that cranked out works by many artists alls signed "Lee Reynolds". The Vanguard St...
  43. Are there any marks on the bottom or under the lid?
  44. I forgot to mention the titles and dimensions of these works: "A Place to Picnic in a World of Pain", 18" x 24", oil on stretched canvas "August Morning", 12" x 36", oil on stretched canvas
  45. Every time I see this I think he is having a belly laugh over something.
  46. A good reminder of the cruelty inherent in the unnecessary use of animals in testing for various purposes.
  47. There are many YouTube videos for the CZ82. I've never heard a negative about this weapon, though some feel that the 9x18mm is at the low end of effective defensive rounds, power wise. With 12 + 1 rou...
  48. Thanks for loving my lamps, Roycroftbooksfromme1!
  49. Thanks. I think it is quality workmanship, too. I think is a modern piece, but maybe 20-30 years old.
  50. The edit feature seems to be broken on CW, so I haven't been able to correct the title to reflect TallCakes information....
