  1. You're so funny Judy! I don't know much about most stuff, but if I like it, I like it! Glad you like this, and thanks!
  2. Thanks Jenni, great to hear that!
  3. Wow, great collection. I can see why you are hooked on these!
  4. At present there doesn't seem to be a lot of Asian collectors on Cw, so you may not get much info back. A good place for you to start is gotheborg. com. It can be a bit time consuming but you may wel...
  5. Korean?
  6. Been living in Cornwall: low Ks but hard driving.....
  7. Fantastic prints, and they look hand coloured. Is that right Jim?
  8. The treasures you find!! He has the perfect level of mischief.
  9. Wow that's huge!I just didn't expect size like that from the Czechs. All perched on those delicate feet. It's a wonder Peggy.
  10. Design excellence.
  11. I am gobsmacked at the quality of these, all so beautiful too.
  12. Absolutely agree with Ken here!
  13. Incense holders?
  14. They do Manikin, and that's a good thing! Thanks so much.
  15. Thanks Jim, and my daughter says yes please to your dog! Keep feeding the cinnamon rolls and soon he his liddle legs won't hold him up, let alone enable climbing!
  16. I love Skrdlovice stuff, always. This one has a great twist, and the colour combo is fantastic!
  17. Thanks for the loves and comments: Jenni Phil and Mary
  18. Not that I am aware of. A really great resource is www.gotheborg.com. There are some forums online and they appear pretty good although I have not used them: https://www.chinese-antique-porcelain.c...
  19. I really enlarged the photo and this brooch up close is breathtaking!
  20. Great job Kyra. It's such a beautiful bug and restored it's incredible!
  21. Fantastic!
  22. I think it will be a FANTASTIC brooch!
  23. Very nice jars. May I recommend a great group on Facebook who are friendly and helpful with identifying stuff: Collecting Chinese Ceramics and Art https://www.facebook.com/groups/185857384957780/?r...
  24. What a great big beauty!
  25. Congratulations on a great custom, very very cool.
  26. Lol, dream on Patrick. That's a top topper!
  27. Wow, cool find Bill, with great follow up information.
  28. I echo everything said above.
  29. YAY for you Judy!!! Great find, fab old Aussie ring.
  30. My thoughts Asian, no one else seems to make that gourd shape. Colour is good too. Whether Japanese or more recent Chinese I couldn't say for sure.
  31. Very nice.
  32. The layers give it such great colour separation and depth. Awesome!
  33. Love love!!!
  34. The glazes are exceptional Art foot. I think the 60s/70s were golden for great ceramics from Japan, and very affordable.
  35. Got the swag!
  36. Fantastic fish!!
  37. Love love!!
  38. Fantastic rest po, well worth it. Enjoy!
  39. Good luck too!
  40. Really like this one Iron lace, particularly the air trap pattern and the beautiful colour. I didn't know this style of glass ever got this big!
  41. Thanks Ivonne, it certainly adds to the optics.
  42. Glad it's helped Judy. I'm sure you are aware that IRice imported from lots of countries, but I have seen quite a bit with their label that is Japanese origin. Lots seemed to be cut glass, possibly ...
  43. I'm channeling hippo at the moment Sue. This one's much cuter! Glad you like my vase. Have a happy 2018(sheesh! 2018!)
  44. Thanks Judy! It's a special piece.
  45. Nah not cryptomeria, haven't got the lines. Something else wood lol. I agree that the ZooLine influence seems there, although these are more kawaii than funky. So glad to hear from you Sue! I've b...
  46. Thanks Jenni. I thought them lovely swirls too!
  47. See, now I'm thinking this is a good chance of Japanese. I'm always learning!!
  48. Harry I just revisited this and have to say that my general idea about Japan and pre war glass and rim finish has changed (mainly thanks to you!) That's a good thing, it doesn't help in IDing glass to...
  49. Your pitcher mark is similar to your teapot. I can't see the mark on your cup well enough but have a look through Gotheborg to see if you can ID it.
  50. The marks under Mt Fuji mean Nichi Hon, or Nippon, for Japan. Gotheborg list the Mt Fuji with stream mark as an unknown, and state this may be occupied Japan export. http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/2...
