LB Laub replied to Ed Young's discussion Heavy Glass Bookends
"Your bookends probably pre-date the 1970s. Perhaps sometime between the '40s and the '60s? I would think they are Blenko. Asking prices are all over the place. Check out the drastic price differences between these two…"
LB Laub replied to Corinne's discussion Please help me identify this Bisque or Paper Mache head straw stuffed body 11" tall doll in the group Whadja Find Today
"She looks like a Depression-era doll to me. The composition head looks like that of a "Patsy" doll and the body appears to be a hand-made make-do. Perhaps the head was purchased separately, or is what was left of a full composition doll…"

"Perhaps it says "Nuyens." They made French brandy. "

LB Laub replied to Pam's discussion Vintage Dressing Screen in the group Whadja Find Today
"I think this entire screen is modern; the panels are for sure. The frame looks to have some age from a distance, but I think it could be a faux technique. I'd like to see some close-ups of the frame details and the panels."

LB Laub replied to Toni Griffin's discussion What are these beauties?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"The chances of these being pewter is slim. They are likely an alloy of mixed cheaper metals (lead, zinc), because the goal with many reliefs like these was to either enamel over top of them, or plate them with a more expensive metal. As they are…"

LB Laub replied to Toni Griffin's discussion What are these beauties?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"These are great! Bradley & Hubbard made plaques like this with various types of patination. It might be worth exploring. Yours would date from c.1880-1910. Do yours have any markings on the back? I have a similar plaque about half the size of…"

LB Laub replied to Charlotte271's discussion Help please! in the group Whadja Find Today
"Really fascinating! I can't quite read the mark, but based on your description, it'd be Atkinson Bros, Sheffield, England. It might be nickel silver (if so, there is no actual silver in it), made somewhere between the 1920s-40s. With those…"

LB Laub replied to Molly's discussion What is this...really? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It looks to me like the woman is interacting with tobacco leaves, so perhaps it was used for something related to smoking."

LB Laub replied to Jesse K's discussion What is the finish on this glass vase called? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Your vase looks like it was made somewhere between the 1930s-70s. You might want to look into Monart glass."

LB Laub replied to Brian smith's discussion Please help identify mysterious box in the group Whadja Find Today
"Pretty box! Have to mention though, that it has Phillips screw heads, which sometimes suggests an item isn’t very old (oldest it can be is mid-1930s). The latch is also pretty common on boxes that have been sold in the past 15 years at places…"

LB Laub replied to Jay Johnston's discussion Madame LeBrun and her daughter, a self-portrait Copperplate Engraving By J.Massard 1880 in the group Whadja Find Today
"The engraving can totally be restored, but it will cost more than the print is worth. It depends on how much you like it.  I see three types of condition issues: water damage on 2/3 of it, mat burn and light damage around the edge of the plate,…"

LB Laub replied to Jay Johnston's discussion Madame LeBrun and her daughter, a self-portrait Copperplate Engraving By J.Massard 1880 in the group Whadja Find Today
"Madame Elisabeth Vigee LeBrun was a very talented Rococo painter. Her husband was a relation of Charles LeBrun, the architect. This is a self-portrait of she and her daughter. The two had a very rocky relationship. I believe her daughter grew up…"

LB Laub replied to Nathan Duncan's discussion **This shall be interesting to here "EVERYONE'S " opinions on info on this Gourgous Vase pleAse can I get some thoughts **** in the group Whadja Find Today
"I agree with Jeff in terms of the date: probably 1950s-60s. I think it is Chinese cloisonne because it has a turquoise interior and a Ruyie border."
