Meet your moderator Marlin Martin. . http://iantiqueonline.ning.com/profile/MarlinMartin I collect a variety of things but ladies head vases have become a real passion of mine. I purchased my first head vase in 1999 and over the years I've added about 750 vases to my collection. I now have several curio cabinets in my home filled to capacity with vintage ladies. I have had the good fortune to have attended the annual head vase convention a couple times and I’ve met several really nice collectors that share my passion for these lovely ladies. In addition to collecting head vases, I also have a small collection of head vase identification and price guides. Some of these books are now out of print and very hard to find.My interest in head vases dates back to the 1960’s. I fondly recall my Father’s older sister, Aunt Nellie, having several of these odd ladies sitting around her front porch. In particular, I remember several vases that I later learned were “Glamour Girls” being filled with dirt and live plants. There were a couple more fragile and detailed vases that she kept in her kitchen and sewing room. They held various items including pencils, feathers, and crochet hooks. She felt these vases were too pretty to be filled with dirt and I could not agree more.

Marlin, I just washed my head lady and found this crack.  How much of a price difference is it going to make.  Here is a inside view and an outside view of the same crack.  The brown on the cheek, looks like brown paint from the eye lashes.  I'm very honest with my items when I sell them at my booth.  And if this hair line crack is a flaw, I want the buyer to know about it. I would appreciate any input you can give me.

Marlin, May I ask what price you would suggest for my Velco # 10759 head vase.  I see one on eBay for sale for $80. that is with shipping and one for sale on Etsy (as Donna pointed out for $224.) Bakersfield prices are usually lower than Los Angeles, Calif. prices, I think cause they get allot more shoppers from around the world down there.  I'm thinking around $100.  What do you think? 

Comment by Shirley Grundman on April 6, 2014 at 6:25pm

Donna, OMG, WHAT WOW! OH MY!  I was just going to look her up to see what price to put on her.  No one will buy it for that here in Bakersfield! LOL

Thank you Marlin and Donna.  Lady GaGa, LOL

She will be the talk of the antique mall I'm in.  You don't see many of the older Lady Head vases in the antique mall.  Just kidding about the "talk of the Antique Mall"!

Love your booth Marlin, I might be interested in your Miss Dream. I sent you a msg on a FB. What a bargain Shirley, lovely lady.

Shirley, those eyelashes look like Lady GaGa. 

Comment by Donna Cook on April 6, 2014 at 5:16pm

Thanks for the pictures of your lovely ladies.  You sure do have a wonderful group.

Congratulations on a finding a real beauty at a super unheard of price! Good for you Shirley!

Comment by Shirley Grundman on April 6, 2014 at 5:00pm

Marlin, what lovely head vase you have for sale.  Loved them all.

I found my first head vase at a yard sale today.  It was only .50 and in perfect condition!  I am thrilled.
