How SHOW US YOUR STUFF Works

Please read these guideines before posting in this group.

SHOW US YOUR STUFF will work like the old days when you brought  something you cherished or were excited about to school, to share with the class. We wanted to offer a group for you to SHOW US your own special finds of antiques,  collectibles and art which are NOT for sale.

1. You may post as many pictures as you like.  

2. Items posted can not be for sale. These are the items you are keeping!  

3. Please do not post items from other sites or selling venues such as eBay or Craigslist.

4. You must own the antiques, collectibles or art. 

5. Please not only SHOW us but also TELL us about the photo you are sharing.

6. Use the group Whadja Find for questions about identifying and evaluating the item you have posted.  Remember we also have a group called Crazy About My Collection for photos about collections.

7. Do not use this group for promotion, advertising or linking to other selling venues. Photos can not have names or advertising super imposed on the photos. Stick to the purpose of this group.

8.  The editor and others will be monitoring this group very closely. We reserve to right to remove any content including photos that violates our terms of agreement when you signed up to be a member of this community or are not consistent with the guidelines of this group as stated.

I love G. Armani sculptures! I have two! A small 1920's flapper that was a gift, and a very large Mermaid in her shell, that I spent almost a year saving up for! I love her though! She's way up on a plant shelf, so my kids and grand kids can't break her - LOL

Reminder to members to use the photo icon on your menu bar when shasring photos so that we can see them in full view. This is a better method than adding an attachment. The photo icon is is the second rectangle box after the work link. When you click on the icon you will see a screen open that say "choose file" and this will bring you to your photo file.

Deanna what a beautiful collection. How did you get started collecting these?
Comment by Lillian Dunbar on July 13, 2013 at 10:10am

A vase for flowers with very short stems! There's a barely legible 671 on the bottom in black.

Comment by Shirley Grundman on July 13, 2013 at 9:28am

Lillian, that is so cute.  I personally think it was made to be a vase. Does it have any markings on the bottom? I bet it is at least from the 50s or 60s.  These are just guesses! 

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on July 13, 2013 at 6:39am

I don't know what the intended use of this ceramic item was. It seems too small for a planter and too deep to be a trinket holder. The whole piece is 5" long.  Maybe a hair receiver? Anyone know what it is and how old?

I forgot to mention that my Grandfather worked in the marble industry; the company he worked for did interior marble work for commercial buildings. While he was a foreman on such work, I suspect that this humidor was one of those end-of-the-day items that we are familiar from other trades.

Yes thats exactly it, money is great but a good story priceless you cannot give it a value, to someone it has more value than you or i would ever know (unless it was ours) i really appreciate good items that are well made and attractive but......an item and  a story just adds to it for me.

Comment by Betty Proper on June 24, 2013 at 10:51am

How many of us have written down the tales that we know about our family treasures?  My sister keeps getting after me to put notes in various items that I "own".  These are not items of great monetary value, simply things that have belonged to specific relatives - such as the marble humidor that my grandfather made for himself.  The story goes that he did not realize that one of the long sides had a pastoral scene on it until he took it home and placed it on his smoking table.  True or not, it is a wonderful tale that I recall each time that I look at the piece as it rests on an end table that my late husband made in high school.
