He/she who dies with the most stuff wins, right? Hey, I have to rationalize it some way or seek therapy. I have an art collection web site, devoted mostly to paintings.

  19. Thanks ho2cultcha!
  20. I am sorry for your loss.
  21. Soap disrupts protective coating imparted by the green tea. If a pot is washed with soapy water and not then treated with green tea, it will be susceptible to rusting.
  22. Thanks for your comment, Karen!
  23. Normally, I would just give it a good brushing with a stiff nylon bristle brush to loosen/remove any debris and then wipe it with a soft towel with a thick nap. Then I would make green tea in it, empt...
  24. Thanks Kevin, jscott0363, aura and dav2no1!
  25. Thank you Alfie21!
  26. Unmarked pots are a challenge, for sure, Karen. I have held enough Japanese tetsu kyusu in my hands, now, that I can get a good feeling for whether something is Japanese, or not. There is probably no ...
  27. Thank you Watchsearcher!
  28. Thanks dav2no1!

  35. Thank you Karen and Thomas!
  36. Love it. Thanks for the cleaning tip. I will have to sort through my pile and see if I have anything which would benefit from a light scrub...
  37. My problem with pieces like this is it is hard to not come off like a creep when trying to get a good look at it if it is being worn in public. In this instance, I would probably still be struggling t...
  38. Agree, probably Chinese, based on the matte finish to the base. The Chinese make some really nice glass. The biggest issue I have with Chinese art glass is that the country is so large and so many dif...
  39. Thanks Jenni! The color is so vibrant I had to wait for the sun to go behind the clouds as it overwhelmed my camera. Glad to hear you and yours are getting the second dose, soon. I look forward to ge...

  43. Probably a sake cup (ochoko). I am not convinced it is Japanese, since it is not marked. Might be Chinese. There are some Chinese pottery experts on CW who can tell the difference. Very pretty, though.
  44. Good eye! Happy Birthday!
  45. Thank you Alfie21!
  46. Thanks for your comment, Eileen! I think that this is the most animated of the various tetsu kyusu imported by Chen/Teavana. It was a crowd favorite with collectors at the time it was being imported. ...
  47. Thanks Eileen! Not late at all! Glad you liked this piece. I hope you had a happy Easter!
  48. Thanks for your comment, Eileen! It definitely filled a hole in my Japanese art glass collection. I have been focusing on studio pieces and pieces that are labeled, as examples. I am buying less glass...
  49. Thanks for your comment, Karen! I am enjoying ferreting out information about Japanese kyusu. I am sure that I will be revising my posts as I learn more. Much of what I have concluded is from observat...
