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

  1. Thank you blunderbuss2! I have not shot it. There is not even any wear on the bolt from cycling the action. I am torn about whether to shoot it, or not. I have plenty of guns that I can shoot...
  2. Thanks blunderbuss2! I really like it. It is a nice one...
  3. @inky - Thanks for your comment! The folks at CW will be the first to hear of any news about this painting. I haven't heard back from the Rijksmuseum, yet. If I don't hear something in the next couple...
  4. As an FYI, CW is now putting Japanese art glass in the "Art Glass > Japanese Antiques" category. They moved some of my glass there, so I've just started putting new pieces there by default. Most of wh...
  5. It is frustrating when artists don't sign their work. It has caused me much trouble and speculation. On the other hand, it can be seen as a sign the artist had confidence that their work could stand o...
  6. There were numerous artists with the first or last name of Clover, so you probably need to widen your search. That being said, many artists...
  7. Based on the meager information available to me, it doesn't look like your painting is by Lewis Peter Clover, but I will do some more research. He apparently signed his works with a signature, based o...
  8. If it was an 1891 Argentine Mauser barrel, not saying it is, it would have been made in 1894....
  9. Yeah, looks like the rear sight assembly is 180 degrees out of alignment. How long is the entire barrel and how long are the threaded area and the raised area next to it? It resembles an 1891 Argentin...

  19. Thank you Thomas and officialfuel!
  20. @Broochman - Thanks for your comment. I had been looking for something a little more interesting for one of my fixtures, and this was a welcome addition to my decor! Thanks for clicking for my "pro...
  21. You are welcome! Hopefully someone will do better than I have and give you a model number and date range for when it was made.
  22. Very pretty. Love the contrast of primitive and sophisticated on this bowl. I wish the makers of all of my glass had etched identifying information on the piece.
  23. Just wanted to make sure other readers of the post understand the substance of the conversation. It drives me crazy when someone makes a change to their post that leaves me wondering what they were ta...
  24. I think that is Fenton Art Glass amber glass. Is there a cat head at the end of the tongue?
  25. Nice! Who is the artist of the watercolor behind the statue? Yes I know this post is 7 years old, but hope you are still there since you commented 10 months ago! Nice nocturne(?)!
  26. Added inset of my bad photo that makes the bottom look recessed, to the photo of the base, for reference.
  27. @truthordare - Thanks again for you comments and keeping me honest! Thanks for clicking the button for my vase! truthordare iggy Broochman aura
  28. Looking at Japanese glass is a joyful experience! My initial thought that this was Sanyu was that I thought that I had found a labeled example of a vase like this. When I went back to find it, I could...
  29. Updated photo of base of vase. It is ground flat an polished. I guess so well polished that it makes it invisible from some angles!
  30. Thanks truthordare. The bottom on this vase is ground flat and polished. I guess my image makes it look like the bottom is recessed. It is not. The interior bottom of the vase makes it look that way. ...
  31. Thank you aura!
  32. @fortapache - Thanks for your comment. Glad you enjoyed my post! Thanks fortapache, welzebub, purvis and yougottahavestuff!

  35. I added information to the description about my ongoing experience with these turtles.
  36. @Newfld - Thanks for your comment Jenni! Thank you artfoot and Newfld!
  37. @Newfld - Thanks Jenni! It is sure different. My eye is continually drawn to it. I wish that I could capture the blue in the green. Thanks for loving my Aseda(?) vase AdeleC, vetraio50 and Newfld!

  46. Some people collect prison art. I've picked up a couple of pieces during my collecting days, but it is not something I have pursued. Some works have pretty grim stories behind them if you research the...
  47. I think it probably has only decorative value. I would donate it to a thrift shop if you don't want it. It is still an attractive, well done piece. The indentations in the paper could probably be flat...
  48. I don't see any damage serious enough to throw this print away. I can't make out the numbers, though. How many prints were in the series and what number is this one? The mat looks a bit ratty, though ...
  49. @billretirecoll - Thanks for your comment! That is a good suggestion. I want to find a "forever home" for this painting, anyway. I sent an email and images to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. I will post...
