Betty Proper replied to Larissa Clayton's discussion Old dresser set? in the group Whadja Find Today
"How vague a term is "vintage"?  Somethings that I have read have said that anything over 20 years old could be considered vintage.  However, just because something could be called vintage does not mean that it has any monetary…"

":-).  I have not smoked since the 19770s but I have never been able to understand how folks "manage" these days - not being able to light up with a cup of coffee after a restaurant meal, not having a cigarette in my ashtray at work,…"

Betty Proper replied to Pamela Edwards's discussion Dish Name in the group Whadja Find Today
"As Tome noted, function depends upon size.  I have some bowls of a similar sort but they are more of a size to be used for a sauce or pickles/olives, not large enough to hold more than one piece of fruit.  What are its dimensions?"

Betty Proper replied to Michael's discussion Patina in the group NEWS and SCHMOOZE
"Michael, you ask "...should an item truly be considered more valuable if left in a dilapidated/unloved state rather than an item which has been 'correctly' looked after, cleaned and preserved in its original mint…"

Betty Proper replied to House of Charm Antiques Southinc's discussion High End Estate in the group Whadja Find Today
"Are the items located in New York?  Does he want to dispose of them as a single lot?  Which way (and how fast) are prices moving on these types of items?  It is thoughtful of the son to think of you, but even if you could swing such a…"

Betty Proper replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Print or Original Drawing or something else entirely ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"You mention that the two places had no interest in the item.  Do you mean that they were not interested in buying/auctioning it?  They probably are not desiring to go "out on a limb" and decide if it is a print or an original…"

Betty Proper replied to katherina martindale's discussion what is this in the group Whadja Find Today
"Sorry, Tom, I took your phrase "vase shaped like a lotus blossom" to mean lotus vase.  I hope that I did not mislead anyone.  I agree that this is not anywhere near the usual shape for a hair receiver which is why I referred to…"

Betty Proper replied to katherina martindale's discussion what is this in the group Whadja Find Today
"My major issue with it being a hair receiver (which I suggested) is that it looks too "modern".  Tom, have you seen lotus vases that are made of 2 separate pieces?  Walter, the idea of it being a string holder is very appealing;…"

Betty Proper replied to katherina martindale's discussion what is this in the group Whadja Find Today
"Might it be a hair receiver?  It looks a bit too "modern" for such and a bit large, but the hole in the top suggests that that might be what it is."

Betty Proper replied to Anne's discussion Really not sure about this...any ideas, jewelry... in the group Whadja Find Today
"Vicki, I loved those Very Bumpy spreads and as a child thought that the ones that had more plain fabric were just "pretenders". :-) "

Betty Proper replied to Dawn Bowe's discussion Decorative Victorian? Etched glass globe in stand in the group Whadja Find Today
"While most terrariums were/are larger, I have found some listed with diameters of 4 inches or less.  The etching does seem to be a problem for seeing anything that might be inside.  I am not saying that it must be a terrarium, just that…"

Betty Proper replied to Dawn Bowe's discussion Decorative Victorian? Etched glass globe in stand in the group Whadja Find Today

Betty Proper replied to Stuart beard's discussion Carved polychromed Red Indian in the group Whadja Find Today
"Michael, It is very pretty when one is in a warm house and watching it come down.  It stays pretty until traffic begins to turn it an icky black on top.  Here in the country it stays nice much longer than it does in the city.  I do,…"
