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.

You would think that with several curio cabinets full of vases I would not get so excited when I find a new one! I found this little gal on Craigslist. She is a 7.5" tall and the manufacturer is Relpo. Her Number is K1782 and can be referenced in Barron's ID and Value Guide on page 67.

Thanks a bunch Marlin

Donna Marie, You have found a really pretty addition to your collection. I have this vase in several sizes and colors. To my knowledge she comes in a 9", 7.5", 5.5" and 4.5" size. From the number you posted your vase should be about 5.5" tall. I have heard this vase referred to as the "Elizabeth Taylor" vase. I don't think it was really modeled after her but I can see the similarity. You can find this vase on page 8 of David Barron's book, "Head Vases Identification and Values Guide". Thanks for sharing her with us!

Marlin, Your Jackie Kennedy head vase is very nice.  Never seen one before.  I'm sure a head vase collector would love to add her to their collection.  Thanks for sharing.

I ran across this Jackie Kennedy vase last week and thought I would post a pic for those of you that enjoy the celebrity vases. She is a duplicate in my collection so I will be passing her along to another interested collector.

Sue,

When you click on add a comment move your curser over the tool bar just above where you type. The 2nd tab over on the tool bar is the "image" button. You could also start a new discussion and add pics there!
