  1. Hi Bill - I got very busy with work promotions these last 10 days and didn't check my posts. Thanks as always for your comments. Yes, very aware of California fires, so heart-breaking. Some of my frie...
  2. Hi Share - mainly the filler was sawdust or cardboard cut to same size as the cab to bring the height up inside the bezel.... I don't let my turquoise bracelets get wet, but as we all know, prongs cat...
  3. Gorgeous colors, I think it is bakelite too :-)
  4. I love it, but I think it's pretty new based on the back side construction.
  5. Jenni - I like the rl website and have bought some goodies :-) The colors of this brooch are so pretty!
  6. Eileen, these are so AMAZING!! Gorgeous colors and design. I would wear both of the brooches on same garment because they are wonderful :-) Cute Mocha! XOXO
  7. The style looks Mexican silver work. It's really pretty.
  8. After reading the Pennino research on Illusion Jewels website - I would collect if I had enough dough. :-)
  9. Yes, a nice big ring, fairly new as in maybe 2 or 3 yrs old. It's not bakelite, lucite or celluloid, but pretty fun.
  10. Beautiful blends of green to yellow. Where did you find this? I love it :-)
  11. Very nice my friend :-)
  12. Beautiful!
  13. Is it bakelite?
  14. Show us the whole beautiful leather handbag front and back, thank you.
  15. I'm not sure because I usually look for beaded bags. The frame is gorgeous! I think it is early 1900's-20's.
  16. http://illusionjewels.com/Penninojewelry.html is a good research source and shows more lovely examples!
  17. Yes, vintage - very pretty! I love those rhinestone channel beads :-)
  18. I love this! What a gorgeous design. I agree, Pennino brooches are so amazing! I need to do some research. I have a furclip, found years ago in Hollywood, FL. It's missing a few rhinestones (I am sure...
  19. Lucite or thermoplastic from the 1960's. I have a black bracelet with same heart shapes. I like your red much better :-)
  20. Charms that move are the best - I think your beer stein does. The bracelet should be chunky and your's is - nice choice! https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/225692-funky-charm-bracelet-from-th...
  21. So lovely dear Jenni!! Hope you can travel to Hawaii later. Awful here right now brown skies, smoke and hot as the beejeezus.....
  22. 1950's tourist beads? Lovely!!
  23. Love it! I'm guessing 1950's.
  24. 50's - maybe early 60's. Great condition and wonderful confetti colors :)
  25. Did you look along the edges for marks? There are many sources online for scarves. I love it, but I don't know what you have.
  26. Yes, I agree with Gillian - it's easy to rewire a lamp. :-)
  27. Thank you Phil - I love the swirly green bakelite and it does pair nicely with the greens of Wisconsin driftless region... Jenni - thank you - plan to secure it better, but okay for now and yes, wh...
  28. So pretty AdeleC! Looks 40's to me. You could try a metal cleaner/polisher. My favorite is Simichrome. If, when you rub you see you are taking off the finish, then you can decide how much you want to ...
  29. The colors are very pretty - Miami Vice - as you said. I love this! :-)
  30. Very unusual and special sea horse for your collection dear Jenni :-)
  31. All so beautiful!!
  32. All wonderful - I think my very favorites are the geometric pin and the Florenza bird - great!! But I love everything you have posted. XOXO
  33. Thank you for sharing, yes please share individual pixs and stories. Love!!
  34. As a birdiac - I love this and my favorite of bird vases. I love the graceful design flow, all 4 birds, the colors! Look forward to learning more from our experts. :-)
  35. Gorgeous brooch Alan - sorry to hear of your disaster. Hope you and your loved ones are all okay.
  36. Judy, Thank you for sharing your family memories! Such a beautiful tribute!
  37. Yes, with Jenni - Love the clear and amber flower spray. :-)
  38. Yes, with Jenni - the shoes are really great! And, love the black bead necklace :-)
  39. And dad coming in at lunch having a beer and a nap while we were watching cartoons? He loved Lancelot Link...
  40. Yes, agree with our friends - what a wonderful collection!!
  41. Eileen....my collection is not really that great in the big guy bakelite collecting world....I need more carved items! Nothing to sneeze at though and I'm always looking in my travels. Courtenay -...
  42. Thanks #1 Bill! It's easy to shine them up fast with the wood conditioner by Howards. Glad you enjoyed my guy-gift ideas and the love letters from my alter ego Bunnies :-) I'm not a smoker but I colle...
  43. Nice poetry!
  44. It's CW rap!
  45. Beautiful color, looks like it was never used. I have to ask is viola like wah la? Because in my post last wk I used wah la since I didn't want to look up the proper spelling. I like viola! I like mak...
  46. Dang Mani, you are the best!!
  47. Jean - they are so lovely, like all of your collections. And, if they get too heavy for you....
  48. Didn't mean to sound gruff, but you can find a lot of stamps on ebay and some sellers will help you out with info.
  49. Gillian - I wish I had a down payment on a house! This collection is great, but definitely not enough for a house. Thank you for your comments! XOXO
  50. Thanks HippieArchaeologist for your comment. I am sure you tell sellers how you would like the item to be shipped, me too - and usually it works. Luckily, this was just the display. I would not ship t...
