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.

Good Morning one and all. It's a beautiful Spring morning in my neck of the woods. I went to a head vase auction a couple of weeks ago and found 2 for my collection about 14 duplicates that I'm selling in my flea market booth. I think I'll head out there and see if how that's going. I'll snap and post a pic just incase any of you might be interested in them. Have a great morning!

I make all of my own replacement earring and necklaces. I would suggest you check out jewelry making supplies at your local craft store. It's well worth the small investment to purchase a pair of the "Jewelry Pliers" and some handy small wire cutters. If you decide that you don't want to make your own here's another option outside of eBay :

Best of luck!

Does anyone know where I can find replacement earrings or pearl necklaces for my head vases? Invariably, it seems like there is always one or the other missing. Thanks.

Love your new lady Marlin, she is hard to get in such good condition. Can you please add me as a friend again . I'm still working out how to post my pics into the group page.
