It always amazes me what some people will throw or give away. I'm always on the hunt for glass, pottery, original signed paintings, furniture or whatever catches my eye ! (Read more)

  1. He's wonderful Moonhill as are all your pieces...I wonder if a piece I posted a few years ago might be by the same maker. She's been a mystery to me. :) https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145...
  2. Hi Share and thanks...yes I'm an early riser. My cat sees to that. ...of course Mitzi has gotten used to the early hours too but she'll go back to sleep. I've always loved the early morning. My brain...
  3. I posted one similar a few years ago Rose. I came up with it being Silvestri which is a Taiwanese import. Doesn't make them any less beautiful in my opinion either. :) https://www.collectorsweekly....
  4. What a wonderful and creative way to display your collection Dave....no shortage of carpentry skills here either.. Bravo ! :)
  5. Kyra..rrific !! :)
  6. Thank you buckethead....it's was a interesting recycle that turned out just right. :)
  7. Thanks so much buckethead...you have wonderful items as well ! :)
  8. Thanks for the "love" and comment buckethead .....they sure are. :)
  9. Gorgeous Kyra what a find ! I'm sure most of our jewelry experts here on CW will agree. :)
  10. Thanks so much Phil. Yes they are and not a breed you see that much anymore other than the Westies or Cairns. :)
  11. Love Venetian scenes as well Ho2. Seems to have some age to it. The label looks fairly old to me...unless it's made to deceive.
  12. I'll take a better picture Ho2 and replace one of these shortly. :)
  13. Thanks Ho2 for another option as to who the artist may be. I 'll have to try and research it from that prospective. It wouldn't be the first time that family stories about heirlooms passed down from g...
  14. Thanks so much Phil for the "love" and compliment. :)
  15. Very nice Val.... Am I wrong in assuming black is rare for bakelite jewelry. I'm used to seeing Victorian "vulcanite" or"gutta percha" when it comes to black. I always seem to associate bakelite with ...
  16. Now this is really awesome Scott ! Love the detail and almost "life size" from the measurements you gave. He must weigh quite a bit too. Very impressive ! Now I'm jealous...lol :))
  17. Thanks Val for the "love" and nice comment. :)
  18. Thanks Scott..that's high praise indeed as you know more about these type of pieces than I do. He has such a sad look...much like Mitzi when I have to leave her home. :)
  19. Thanks so much Bonnie ....and I sure will. :)
  20. Thanks so much Scott. It is but my hasty photo really doesn't do it justice. So glad you like it. Yes I'm a happy camper...lol :)
  21. I think so too Karen. I had pulled up the Sandusky historical societies page but it wasn't loading the pages I wanted to look at. Some sites are just glitchy. Just haven't gotten back to it. The censu...
  22. Thanks so much Scott for the nice compliment. Still have both pieces sitting on my desk at home. :)
  23. Wonderful piece Rick ! :)
  24. Sweet vase Tony...love the applied flowers. Unusual to see an impressed mark. Maybe Meiji era Satsuma of some sort. Probably had a lid as well. Check Gotheborg's porcelain site under the Japanese sect...
  25. Thanks once again everyone for the nice comments. It still has pride of place on my desk. :)
  26. Hi sk1symphony...I'm so glad that you found my post and equally glad to hear your talented grandmother is well and living in Paris..how wonderful ! CW is a great site and I've had pieces that I've pos...
  27. He's so cool Scott...of course I'm partial to Scottie's. :)
  28. Thanks Malkey...they are fun to look at. I keep silk ivy in them now to avoid the hard water stains they originally had. :)
  29. Hi Parkerhouse. Thanks for the nice comment. Well I'm not sure where I read about the FTD connection in my research. It's been a while since I posted this. I know a lot of floral shops carry Fenton g...
  30. How nice to hear from you gehryfran . So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. I've always loved art pottery and living in Ohio (art pottery central) there is a lot of it. I've acquired a few more ...
  31. It's heavenly Karen with a sense of motion...just like a real planet. :)
  32. It's been a while Scott...nice to see you back. :)
  33. What a great painting "BH"...I photo edited the signature. The date after it looks like 1864. Judging from the peoples clothes and the "Affentheater" poster 19th century seems correct. I can see the s...
  34. That blue and burgundy one definitely catches my eye Karen...love the design ! :)
  35. I'm so sorry to hear about Anne. She put up a brave fight against this terrible disease. Cancer claimed my brother-in-law after his 2 year struggle against colon cancer. We laid him to rest today. May...
  36. I always loved those. Such iconic TV's for the "Atomic Age".
  37. Spectacular !
  38. Wonderful explosion of color and design ! :)
  39. I'll see what I can dig up Roy might take a few days though. :)
  40. Very cool indeed Ho2. The lid looks pretty good actually, but I understand the desire to find the "perfect" one. :)
  41. I agree Bonnie. I've been there too. Right place at the right time. It's a great feeling and yours is a wonderful score ! :)
  42. I might Roy. They're on an old hard drive I don't have hooked up right now. We had member changes over the years from 78-84. Originally it was just a guy singer. We were doing Alan Parsons back then a...
  43. Another blast from my past. I was so happy when I found my copy at a local thrift store to replace my long gone original, "Only The Lonely" was on our set list as well...loved playing that heavily "ph...
  44. Takes me back to my cover band days Roy...The Go's Go's were probably this first songs we learned along with Pat Benatar's. The 80's.... what a great decade for music !
  45. This is wonderful Karen. The vase reminds me of a paper lantern. Interesting how the rings on the pheasant mirror the ones on the lantern. Unusual color too...not quite red or brown . :)
  46. Love the cobalt blue one Karen ...especially for it's form as well as the color. Red is my favorite color most of the time but the shape on the blue one ticks all the boxes for me. Can't get too excit...
  47. Thanks Rick :)
  48. What a great find Ho2...once a lamp always a lamp though. A shame people back in the day didn't know any better than to drill away at these gorgeous pieces. :)
  49. Thanks so much for the "love" and comment Share :)
  50. Thanks so much Tassie for the "love" and compliment. :)
