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.

  1. Thanks for your comments kivatinitz! Maybe more accurate to say "Asian themed", then. Thanks for loving my lamps Cisum, Jenni, BHIFOS, Daisy1000, Kevin, fortapache, PhilDMorris, dav2no1 and Watchse...
  2. Thanks for sharing that link rhineisfine. Thanks vcal.
  3. Thanks Kevin.
  4. Thanks for looking at my post kivatinitz, Jenni, dav2no1, BHIFOS, inky, fortapache, billretirecoll, PhilDMorris, Cisum, Vynil33rpm and rhineisfine.
  5. @billretirecoll - Thanks, Bill. I completely understand the situation with your neighbors cats. Two of my neighbors cats just about live in my back yard and I feed them with their owner's permission. ...
  6. Thank you, rhineisfine. Narcissa was a little bundle of personality and always perfectly behaved. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to care for her. The little bell is a perfect remembrance o...
  7. Yes, I vote for shoyu...
  8. Thx! I feel kind of stoopid, now, since I have several sauce pots. None are in this shape, though. Once I figured it out, I found several in this shape. Luckily, I am a senior citizen and in 15 minute...
  9. All of my sauce pots have holes in their lids, too, so now pretty sure this is a sauce pot. Most sauce pots have a spout which is more hook shaped, maybe to prevent launching sauce across the table...
  10. Hmmm. Maybe it is a sauce pot, not a teapot? I have several sauce pots but I do not think they have holes in the lids. I will have to check them to see.
  11. Thanks for your efforts Waki! I appreciate it! found a couple of other pots with a similar configuration so it is a "thing" but I cannot figure out what that thing is. If I do, I will update this post...

  17. Happy Thanksgiving, Jenni!
  18. Happy Thanksgiving! I do not celebrate it but have one of these turkey candy dishes that belonged to my grandmother who passed in 1958. It was given to me by my mother so I have to remember to pass it...
  20. Updated images. Added a better image of the mark on the bottom. Amanda was also not satisfied with her limited presence in the images based on her contract which guarantees exposure in at least 50% of...
  21. Thank you kivatinitz!
  22. Sorry for your loss of Maggie. One of mine will soon be traveling to another place. Always a difficult time.
  23. Thanks for your comments LaurenRedmond! Yes, that is Amanda. She is my $1000 kittie, as that is how much emergency surgery cost an hour drive from home in the middle of the night took to save her. It ...
  24. Thanks Kevin!
  25. Thanks for your comments, Jenni! This is really nice work. Thanks for loving my Chinese teapot BHIFOS, dav2no1, fortapache, Watchsearcher, PhilDMorris, Jennifer and Cisum!
  26. You can see some of her whiskers in the upper left corner of image 3. I got a couple more good images of her with the pot. She was fascinated with it.
  27. She is real. She jumped on the table while I was taking pictures of the tea pot and I got lucky with that picture.
  28. Why, Sir, I have no idea what you are talking about!
  29. Thanks for checking out my Blenko vase Blammoammo and Drake47!
  30. Thanks for your comment LaurenRedmond! My first thought when I saw it was "apple" too. Thanks for loving my apple like fly trap inky, Blammoammo, Cisum, Cokeman1959, LaurenRedmond, Kevin, Daisy1000...
  31. Thanks for your comment ho2cultcha! Thanks for loving my jar Leelani and ho2cultcha!
  33. Made by Ikenaga.. Their version of hisago kyusu. I forgot that I have a couple of unmarked Ikenaga pots... Still being made:?
  34. One of these on Etsy with strainer.
  35. Is the interior smooth or rough?
  36. Either not lined inside or lined with polymerized oil. No sign of being used over direct heat so not been used as a kettle which is good. Oitomi is the only foundry I know of who does not (sometimes) ...
  37. Actually a few design differences from mine so maybe older. A tetsu kyusu, not a tetsubin. Too small for a kettle.

  39. Made by Oitomi, missing its stainless steel mesh strainer. Modern, post 2000. Still being made to order, available on Oitomi's website or via Amazon. The design is Hisago (gourd). I posted one of thes...
  40. Thanks Jenni! Took a look and you only show one trap and it is not like this one. Nice piece of glass, the feet are actually melted to the body, not clued like a lot of Chinese glass. Guessing it i...
  41. Thanks for loving my bowl Drake47, PhilDMorris, Cisum, Jenni, vcal, Kevin, fortapache and dav2no1!
  42. Thanks for the link! Thanks for loving my insulator-cum-paperweight Drake47, fortapache, vcal, dav2no1, Vynil33rpm and Jenni!
  43. Love Fenton. Beware, today I saw what I am fairly certain was a Made in China labeled cat made from a Fenton mold or else made from a copy of a Fenton cat. Dang.
  44. Thanks TallCakes! Will have to go back and see if I can find the plug. Guessing probably made in China.
  45. Added closeup of marks. Thanks Drake47!
  46. Thank you Watchsearcher and Cisum!
  47. Thanks Watchsearcher and Cisum!
  48. Thanks. Cisum!
  49. Thanks for your comments, Jenni! It has two cranes on it. A pretty complex piece. Thanks for your comments, PhilDMorris! It is pretty well executed. I wonder why the artist decided to have differen...
