  6. Nice. I have several of these ironwood (?) carvings, including a similar quail. Not quite so common as they once were. Maybe the makers were put out of business by Chinese imports? Dunno...

  9. Thank you vcal!
  10. Thanks JennyfromBoston and vcal!
  11. Great link! Looks like my two crackle glass insulators were intentionally heated and cooled to turn them into crackle glass for decorative purposes. Any collectible value they had was destroyed by doi...

  13. Thank you blammoammo!
  14. My chalkware cat has been fixed. I don't need any more little chalkies cluttering up my shelves! Not warm but pretty safe. Had to drive home in an ice s...

  16. Nice. Not seen a white one before!
  17. Thanks Glenn12345!
  18. The only Made in China things I ever recommend are Rough Rider knives. They make a copy of this knife which is really good quality for under $20. No logo, though. My every day pocket knife is a Rough ...
  19. I still use one of these sometimes. If I want to sleep for 8 hours, I just set it for midnight, no matter what the time really is.. The alarm is always set for 8 am.
  20. Thank you Glenn12345!
  21. Are there any markings on the bottom?
  22. Yes, a kokeshi doll. Unfortunately, it does not appear to be signed, though. Here is a good site for researching kokeshi dolls:
  23. Beautifully made pieces, Karen. I love these.
  24. I really like the color and texture of this one, Jenni! Sweet!
  25. Thanks for your comments, Karen. It is a case of art in the making of an every day tool. A cooking tool in this case. The new house is coming along but things stalled a bit while I dealt with the ...
  26. Thanks for your comments AnythingObscure. Yes that was a good thrift shop experience! Actually, I had to find a new house very quickly and looked at many houses in several cities within driving distan...

  28. Thank you Glenn12345!
  29. Thanks for your comments apostata! It was a lucky find for me. It seems like it is good quality. I am still researching it and Kaneso. I may try sending them some images and see if they respond. I wil...
  30. What a fantastic piece! I love it! Are you going to restore it?
  31. I updated the images on this post in hopes of getting some fresh eyes on it. Still a mysterious mystery.
  32. Thanks for checking out and loving my sukiyaki pot jscott0363 and aura!
  33. Well, as with many of my mystery objects, it can always be used as a paperweight. It does appear to be a very well made paperweight.
  34. Thanks for loving my Michael Schwegmann vase ho2cultcha!
  35. Happy New Year, Jenni!
  36. It is very endearing and I love the color transitions, Jenni. Great piece. Really nice size, too.
  37. Thanks, ho2cultcha! It is actually really deep purple and white. The purple can only be easily seen at the tips where the glass gets thinner but the thicker parts look purple, too, in bright sunlight.
  38. Happy New Year!
  39. Need better defined closeups of the signatures.
  40. Thanks ho2cultcha! Sorry for the loss of one of your pieces but look forward to seeing the survivor.

  46. Thank you Cisum and Mrstyndall!
  47. Thanks aura and Daisy1000!
  48. Dimensions? Does the inside look like it has had something burning in it? My first thought, without knowing the size, was a cigarette or cigar box.
  49. Thanks for loving my sukiyaki pan vcal, Cisum, Jenni, Kevin and dav2no1!
  50. Thanks for posting! CW is a good place for documenting items like this.
