Colin that bowl looks better every time I see it ...it really has the translucency of real pearls...it must be a recorded piece its so beautiful.

Vicki I love the Rabbit he could sit on my desk any day....I believe the moulds for Vallerysthal and Portieux are being used today I seem to remember reading about it somewhere.

I finally managed to photo the bottom of my Art Nouveau bowl in a stand. The base is polished flat. see pic...We seem to have an animal theme going as I found this in the flea market today...along with these 'Floral'uranium candlesticks by Jeannette Co.I already have a pair of these so this pair will go in my for sale box !!

Vicki - the rabbit is adorable!

I have managed to take some more photographs of the 'pearlescent glass' bowl. I am still unsure who made it, but am now steering towards a Bohemian or a German maker (perhaps) however I am only basing this upon making comparison to the numerous examples of French opalescent glass that I have, and this bowl is unlike anything I have seen from France.

Yes, I did have so much fun.  Vicki, love your rabbit candy dish.

Vicki, did you look at my finds? 

Comment by vicki hufstetler yesterday

This is another one I sold along time ago. I'm pretty certain this to, was old Vallerystahl. Note the matte like finish, and you could compare the base, thickness of glass etc......

Comment by vicki hufstetler yesterday

Wow Shirley! Sounds grand! So happy you and your friend had so much fun! Just thinking about all that picking makes me tired - LOL

We're on day 2 of a semi-hoarder sale, and my back is froze up like a "frozen Charlotte doll" ROFL I'm outta shape, after this long and cold winter! But, I got my son and friend to haul out a whole bunch of "stuff" into garage and garbage, so it's shaping up already! I'll post some pics once we get organized.

Chris - LOL I think we all know those "withdrawal" symptoms very well!

Donna, if you like vintage children's stuff - you will love the treasure trove in this dear lady's house! WOW! We've got the most unusual things, and they are everywhere! She was a true collector, that got a bit outta hand, me thinks! :)

Colin - gorgeous vase, as all your pieces are! Eye candy for sure!

Angela - I would agree w/ Colin on your Blue Rooster, however I'm pretty sure the very old vallerystahl in blue are more of a matte finish. I'm not very familiar with that company, but know it was French. I wonder if they reproduced items like our American co's did? Or, perhaps old molds were bought and used again at a later date? Let us know what you find out.

I've got an adorable matte blue covered camel dish - similar to yours, I posted quite a while ago. But it is a matte finish. I was going to sell it, but it's still sitting on my desk! :)

We will look forward to more pics of your unusual MOP vase. It almost looks like Tiffin, USA to me?

Comment by Chris Pollock yesterday

Wow, you have been busy Shirley. We're trying to hold off going anywhere until our trip back to Galveston next month. Don't know though I'll be getting withdrawal symptoms soon I imagine.

Comment by Donna Cook yesterday

Shirley,  You had a fun and productive visit with your friend.  What nice finds, you found 3 really neat roosters.   My GW had a vintage wooden childs ironing board for $2 and a small Belleek vase for $2 - when I sent yesterday.     


Comment by Shirley Grundman yesterday

Hi Everyone,  OMG, I've had 6 days of almost non stop Picking!  Yard sales over the weekend, thrift stores and antique stores during the week days!  I'm so tired.  My girlfriend came out from Orange Park, Florida, and we had a ball.  I found some wonderful things.  You can check all them out on IAOL "My Page photos".  Oh, what a fun week it was.  After the Tues. Swap meet she headed to the Grand Canyon, before heading back to Florida. 

Vickie, I love the Northwood Hearts & Flowers bowl and Oh my that opalescent chair is to die for!  Neat. 

Angela, what nice finds you have too.  Love the blue rooster on a nest.

Colin, Oh my that Libochovice vase is Candy to my Eye! 

Donna, I will write to you personally when I get rested up! 

Comment by Angela Evans on Saturday

Thanks Laura I will take a photo of the vase base for you to see.
