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. What a stunning piece Rick...Steuben at it's finest ! :)
  2. It's an interesting piece Karen...on it's side like that it reminds me of a squid or octopus gracefully propelling itself through the ocean depths. :)
  3. Thanks Rick.....it is quite a large piece too with wonderful colors. :)
  4. Hi Karen so nice to hear from you...yes we've both been strangers on CW lately...lol. The holidays are coming and Sis and I have to get the booth decked out at the antique mall for some record sales.....
  5. Gorgeous piece Ken. Love the colors and floral motif. :)
  6. Great match....I've had that happen as well. Found pieces months apart that seem to go together perfectly. :)
  7. Thanks so much Rose :)
  8. Had some 100% acetone handy...the result is negative. The surface is smooth as glass and nothing came off on the Q-tip.
  9. Hi cameosleuth...yes they are and they do very quite a bit in color and intensity. They can also be polished into spheres. Just for aethstetics I guess. Here's a link to a few on Etsy. :) https://...
  10. Thanks Cameoslueth...my research finally turned up a polished point taken from the interior of an Amethyst geode. :)
  11. Thanks for the "loves" Ivonne and SpiritBear. :)
  12. Thanks Cameosleuth and Kyra for the info and "loves". I had a hunch calcite for the big one as well. It seemed to match the online pics fairly well. I guess Mexican calcite is the best according to my...
  13. Thanks Ken...this is a line that belongs to their "production ware" meaning they made a lot of it. Although it isn't marked Roseville which may be why it gets mistaken for something else much like the...
  14. Thanks so much Pressglas for all the great info and links ! :)
  15. Thanks for the "love" Alan. :)
  16. Thanks for the "loves" Roy and Newfld :)
  17. Thanks for the "loves" Aura, Roy, Newfld, The Gatherer, Kevin, Kyra, and Tassie. :)
  18. Thank you Fort for the "love" and comment...getting the store ready for the holidays as they quickly approach but I'll find time to post more goodies. :)
  19. Hi Lundy....I posted one just like yours a while back .....here's the link to my post and what I found out. :) https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/126462-teak-or-mahogany-bust--14-x-6-1-2-m?in...
  20. Thanks so much for the "loves" and comments Gillian and Ken. I'll try not to make myself so scarce Ken...just been busy with the store and all.
  21. This is really an eye catcher Karen ! At first I thought the pattern looked like fish netting. The shape seems to defy any geometric category but it does remind me of facets in a gem...which it certai...
  22. I'd have it restored ...it's very special indeed ! :)
  23. WOW !....what an impressive find Ho2. Majolica is so delicate especially at this size. Hope all or most of the pieces were still there. Very cool !! :)
  24. 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...
  25. 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....
  26. What a wonderful and creative way to display your collection Dave....no shortage of carpentry skills here either.. Bravo ! :)
  27. Kyra..rrific !! :)
  28. Thank you buckethead....it's was a interesting recycle that turned out just right. :)
  29. Thanks so much buckethead...you have wonderful items as well ! :)
  30. Thanks for the "love" and comment buckethead .....they sure are. :)
  31. Gorgeous Kyra what a find ! I'm sure most of our jewelry experts here on CW will agree. :)
  32. Thanks so much Phil. Yes they are and not a breed you see that much anymore other than the Westies or Cairns. :)
  33. 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.
  34. I'll take a better picture Ho2 and replace one of these shortly. :)
  35. 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...
  36. Thanks so much Phil for the "love" and compliment. :)
  37. 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 ...
  38. 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 :))
  39. Thanks Val for the "love" and nice comment. :)
  40. 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. :)
  41. Thanks so much Bonnie ....and I sure will. :)
  42. 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 :)
  43. 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...
  44. Thanks so much Scott for the nice compliment. Still have both pieces sitting on my desk at home. :)
  45. Wonderful piece Rick ! :)
  46. 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...
  47. Thanks once again everyone for the nice comments. It still has pride of place on my desk. :)
  48. 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...
  49. He's so cool Scott...of course I'm partial to Scottie's. :)
  50. Thanks Malkey...they are fun to look at. I keep silk ivy in them now to avoid the hard water stains they originally had. :)
