He/she who dies with the most stuff wins? Hey, I have to rationalize it some way or seek therapy.

  1. Thanks Deano! This Telaflora? https://www.teleflora.com/info/about
  2. Weapons like the M1943 shown in this post are unlikely to be used in a crime. Guessing the shooting in New Jersey was handgun related, since it was apparently a gang shooting and no one died. Criminal...
  3. Not heard back from Boyd Glass...
  4. Thanks for the comments, glassbird. I sent some images to Mosser. Hope they respond!
  5. Thanks for the comments Gillian and Newfld! "McKee Early American Milk Glassware" is the name of a product line put out by McKee. There are several examples on Ebay, Etsy and Worthpoint of other p...
  6. Here is an image of this vase in the first ad: Https://www.rucklczglass.com/moreczech-kraliki.html
  7. Thanks for your help!
  8. I found this web site and am starting to educate myself about this maker. http://www.kralik-glass.com/frametemplate.html
  9. Thanks Alan2310! Do you know about how old it is?
  10. Thanks for the comments fortapache and blunderbuss2. Ah, cosmoline. We love it and hate it. I stop short of getting all of the cosmoline out of my stocks as I like the feel of it in the wood. Soun...
  11. I suspect that you are right, TallCakes. One reason I stopped collecting glass years ago was because there were so many reproduction and counterfeit pieces of glass popping up. Now (for some time actu...
  12. Thanks for the comment, Newfld! I really like these. Thanks for the loves SpiritBear, vetraio50, Caperkid, TassieDevil, fortapache, aura and Newfld.
  13. Submitted a suggestion for a new category for Viking Glass. Great link! Thanks! Now I am going to be looking for more of these.
  14. I found an Etsy page that speculates these were made for LG Wright by either Fenton or LE Smith in the 1950s.
  15. I like the smile on his/her face.
  16. Very pretty, Newfld! I have it in cobalt. Mine has a partial label on the bottom.
  17. Thanks, TallCakes. That is probably it. May wait a bit before attributing it to Wright in case more supporting evidence pops up. Great research!
  18. I am going to nickname this the Rat Tail Candle Holder....
  19. Thanks for the comment, Thomas. Listening to Hotel California as I type this!
  20. Looks like "SM" was a "thing" so double checked my plate for an "SM" but found none. I think you are probably right on this TallCakes. Definitely looks like a Viking blue.
  21. The pattern looks similar, too. https://tinyurl.com/y8t2otup
  22. Well, I just found a piece on ebay that the seller claims is Viking, marked "SM" for Sandwich Glass Museum....
  23. @TallCakes. I don't think that I have ever seen a piece of Viking that is marked in the glass like this one is....
  24. Just to muddy the waters, I will note that the color of this is similar to some Dansk candle holders that I have found in my search.
  25. Thanks TimeTraveller! I believe you are right , based on a bit more research.
  26. Thanks for the comment Newfld. I think it is cute, too. Leaning toward Fostoria as the maker. It is high quality glass and from the period when Fostoria was making glass for Avon. Supposedly Fostoria ...
  27. I added a closeup of the mark. I also sent images to Boyd Art Glass, since they were around when this may have been made and they were probably well aware of their competition at the time. The selle...
  28. Finnish rifles are known for their beautifully figured stocks, some of which is attributable to the pine tar finish usd on them.
  29. Agree. There is a lot of random wear on the corners on the bottom.
  30. Thanks for the comments Newfld and TallCakes. TallCakes, thanks for your research! I have had this little figure for ten or twelve years, stuck away in my china cabinet. I stopped collecting glass ...
  31. I have this swan in amber, too. I had the mouse in amber, too, but my cat broke it. These are so delicate.
  32. Thanks for the comments blunderbuss2, fortapache and Mystaplers (Office Space reference?). Thanks for the loves dlpetersen, bobby725, fortapache, blunderbuss2 and Manikin. This M1 is one of the...
  33. Yep, it probably looks now as it did after about six months in the field. The M16 that I carried was about two pounds lighter with a loaded 20 round magazine and about half a foot shorter. My uncle an...
  34. Thanks for the comment racer4four. I really like. It is a pleasure to handle. Going to try to find my spare batteries and see what it actually weighs. It is a chunk of glass. Also sent and email and i...
  35. Thanks billretirecoll! I did not know that and find it really interesting. Thanks for the link! I really love picking up a piece of glass and turning it over and seeing that HA mark. Also, thank...
  36. Thanks for the loves aura, fortapache and Tassiedevil!
  37. Thanks for the loves aura, TimeTraveller, Caperkid, AdeleC, TassieDevil, fortapache, nutsabota6 and Newfld and the comments from Newfld and TallCakes.
  38. Here is a really interesting interview where John Travolta talks about Nicholas Cage and at about 4:45 he is talking about a discussion he had with Cage and Cage mentions that he sometimes wakes up wi...
  39. I always describe myself as a "color junkie" (I have about 50 Hawaiian shirts!) and these pictures did it for me. Nice.
  40. Actually, after living with this vase for a bit, I think the first photo more accurately shows the true color.
  41. Thanks racer4four. The color shown in images of the bottom are the closest to the true color. Some descriptions liken it to oxblood.
  42. Sweet! Thanks!
  43. Thanks! My glass eye (no pun intended) is definitely rusty. Looks like this was a very popular pattern for toothpick holders.
  44. Yep, the one on ebay is definitely it! Thanks!
  45. Thanks, TallCakes. I also found a little toothpick with the exact pattern, but the link is no longer good. All of the Nucut that I find is so much heavier and thicker than this piece.... Thanks for yo...
  46. Thanks, TallCakes. Wasn't Imperial mostly marked in the glass?
  47. Pattern called Quintec....
  48. Thanks, TallCakes. I found that McKee and L E Smith also made a similar pattern...
  49. Good eye, TimeTraveller. Harriett also had some shelves in the dining room that were loaded with milk glass.
  50. Thanks for the comment Newfld! Paneled Grape is my favorite pattern from Westmoreland. I was watching some old Ozzie and Harriet episodes and they had Westmoreland glass pieces in some of the shots.
