Colin, your so funny!  Your Sailor Boys plate is interesting.  I bet it is very collectable. 

Comment by Shirley Grundman on March 7, 2014 at 6:55pm

Angela, I wish you could come to the Showcase too.  I'll try to get some good pics to share.  Your granddaughter is so cute.  And that Memorial statue what a beautiful setting.  So sorry for the coal miners.  Always sad. 

Comment by Classy Glass Antiques on March 7, 2014 at 6:52pm

Donna - I am very sorry, but I simply MUST disagree - Men in uniforms do nothing for me, though give me a lady of the fleet, any time.  lol lol

However, here is one of my Art Works of some Hillbilly-Boyz, that I was commissioned to paint for a magazine back in the 1990s, and also this other one as well, of two men at the movies... Plus Three Sailor-Boys... They were for a Gay magazine, but work is work and each to their own. I got paid well for these paintings, as I recall, and any commission was money in the bank, when I had children to feed.  


one as well.

Shirley...would love to be able to come to your Collectors Showcase, its looks wonderful.I look forward to seeing some pictures of the event.

Colin ...that is a beautiful tribute to your mum, she sounds like a real character 

Vicki...gorgeous Sabino glass and I think we would call your Waterford Crystal dish a Relish Dish

Finally the sun shone on us today giving us hope that spring is upon us at last...my grandaughter is two this weekend so party time for Nanny and Grancha. But today we made an Easter Bonnet.....and went for a lovely walk to see our Guardian, a huge memorial to coal miners who lost their lives in an explosion at a local colliery in 1960

There's a lot happening on the Glass Hounds page.  Nice pics Vicki.  Your lady figurine is really lovely.  The sailor figurine is adorable, it's hard to resist a man in a uniform...lol.  

Shirley, that's a great picture of all the lighting.  I bet you will have a fun weekend.   

Colin, great stories about your Mum.  She was a pretty young lady. 


Comment by Shirley Grundman on March 7, 2014 at 6:00pm

HI Glass Hounds.  Well this weekend is our be Collectors Showcase antique show and Sale.  I just got back from helping set up the room for it.  Tables, lighting etc.  I'll be there both days all day.  I'm not selling, I am in charge of the members who are selling the tickets to get in the show.  I also help where ever I can.

Colin, yes, as far as I know Kyle is doing ok.  His wife Marainda, post on my FB page.  But I don't actually hear from Kyle.  Colin your Sabino Butterfly and Egret are Beautiful. 

Vicki, OMG on the Syroco figurines.  Oh, I love them.  Any chance I could buy a couple from you?  Only if it is no bother.  I love them.  Of course I already have the set of 4 Hillbillies.

Vicki your Sabino little bird is beautiful also and the Deco girl is Awesome!

I bought my daughter the Tiara Strawberry candy dish in red, it is very striking! 

On your Scottie dog lamp, Vicki, it is L.E. Smith.  It's in my book.  It's from 1949.  Comes in fired on Blue and fired on Pink.  It of course comes with a glass shade.  It is very cute. 

So you'll all know I will be very busy during the day at the antique show this weekend.  I'll take pictures and try to get them posted in the evening.  It is the best antique show in Kern country.  We have a theme for the show every year.  This year our them is lighting.  This picture I took today of the foyer entrance into the show. It is done by members of our club.

... My Mum, was always dropping me hints. She used to say to me things like: "Colin, make sure you don't throw away any of my handbags"... I'd not have a clue what she meant at the time. "Be sure to look in my fur-coat pockets" was another of her mentions that I recall... I looked in that fur coat pocket, and found her Dads, and her grandfather's Gold Hunter watches and chains...  

This will make you laugh.... I also stumbled upon a pretty little bag of hers, and you can imagine my excitement of what may be within... I opened it up and guess what inside???  A set of her false teeth!  I laughed my heart out for many days. I just KNEW that she had did that just to make me smile... 

This is my Mum. I made the photo frame etc. when she went to Heaven and I made a small temple for her in my hallway. I also made the Gothic arch from plaster, backed it with mirror and aged it with coffee. The two other pictures are her own Mum & Dad. 

The words upon her photo, I wrote:  You were my wonderful Mother... The Love that You sent out returns to you with MY Love, for always... Colin

Below: The Waterford Crystal Shamrock was one of my fav. Christmas gifts from my in laws. I was losing daylight fast though, when trying to take pics. I had just wiped that off yesterday - and you can already see the dust/dirt it's collected, not living on a dirt road again! LOL

Last but not least: Waterford Crystal Mayo dish. At least I'm pretty sure that's what it is. It's the wrong shape for a jam/jelly, to big for a mustard, So what do you'all think?

Wasn't able to capture the marking on this one, but it's there. It's an older piece, not having the seahorse within the mark.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on March 7, 2014 at 3:07pm

Just a few more finds, I will add more later:

This is the cute Tiara covered candy in blue/aqua, in the "strawberry" pattern. If I had room, I think I'd keep it, but it's going to the booth!

These are a few finds I got at my girlfriends estate sale. Price bros. England "Cottageware" teapot. I think these are darling, but they are currently out of fashion, I guess, as they are not selling well.

The little perfume/trinket with dauber is rather unusual in the dress form shape. I think it might be German. It was my friends Mom's, but it seems to be "not quite right" The base appears to be fine bone china, while the body and dauber are a thicker paste type porcelain. "Marriage" maybe? Not sure, but it's going to the antique mall to!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on March 7, 2014 at 2:56pm

Thank you for the info on my little bird. I thought it might be Sabino, but there really isn't any markings. I assumed maybe it once had a paper/foil label, or perhaps came with something else that was marked? No clue. But I'm happy to hear that it is Sabino! I just love the opalescence of these pieces!

I love the Heron and butterfly to! I've never seen those before. :)

Colins Mom, sounds like our kind of gal! We all love people after our own hearts! I to "sneak" things into our house, but remove what was in it's place - Hubby is not very observant - thankfully! HeeHee!

I got a few pics of my latest finds, most are glass, but I've got a few others to:

For Shirley - here are a few of the Syroco figurines I'm selling at my booth. I got a whole box of them at an auction, as most folks don't know what they are! There is a cute Hillbilly band in there to! The cowboy on Donkey should have more pieces to match for the "Cowboy band". Still digging around to see if I have anymore.

I've found this little Scottie dog lamp base before, but have never got confirmation on the maker. It's not of really good quality, having "flashed" decoration that is mostly worn off. I think it is ca. 1950 depression era, and was probably made as a child's or Nursery lamp. Boyds is one maker I've seen, but I understand those were signed, and this one is not. If you know the maker, please chime in!

Please also "excuse my dust" this is the front window of my office, and we live on a dirt road. No sooner do I wipe something off then it is again covered in dirt/dust - ugg!
