LB Laub replied to Lorraine Marie Easterling's discussion Looking for info on vase in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Lorraine, I can't quite see well enough in the pictures, but I think it is possible your vase is enamel. If so, the luminous parts would probably be ginbari, which is a Japanese foil technique. When the foiled areas are enameled, they appear…"

"I believe the ebay listing at least is this woman. She studied in Paris and went by Amy even though her first name was Mary. I'd be curious to know if she could be the artist of mine, but the styles are wildly different. Pardon the Wikipedia…"

"LB, on your link I can definitely read Amy, not Emmy, Otis Paris.  I think the ebay listing is erroneous. When I Google Amy Otis-Paris the same picture as yours comes up but w/o any additional information.  It appears to me that Otis was…"

"Well, Tom, now I'm torn. There is an Amy Otis (1863-1950) of Sherwood, New York who was active in Philadelphia. Here's an ebay listing with one of her pieces, mistakenly identified as Emmy Otis. The style is different, but I could see some…"

"I saw Amy Otis, but the time period and artistic style doesn't fit. I just made up Lady Lilac as something to call her. There is no official title anywhere on the piece."

"Wouldn't that be exciting? Contextually it could work. I should mention that I bought the drawing in lower Central New York/"upstate" New York, depending on where one is standing, so NYC or Philadelphia origins of the artwork are…"

Jeff Guy replied to LB Laub's discussion Help with Lady Lilac in the group Whadja Find Today
"Sorry, but I can't help. Surprising. I can't see any possibility for the last name besides Otis. And I found three artists Otis on signaturefinder.com, but don't see an A. Otis. He/she clearly had skill. Could it be the name of the…"

LB Laub replied to kay jos's discussion Information about a vintage secretary desk please in the group Whadja Find Today
"I think Jasper is the maker of your secretary and Salem refers to the color code; a nostalgic nod to the early furniture makers of Salem, Massachusetts. There are a few other examples of 1950s secretaries online with the same finish that are also…"

I thought it would be an easy mystery to solve, but it's got me stumped. It is signed at the bottom left corner, "A. Otis," but I haven't found any sources referencing an applicable artist by that name. There is an ink gesture to the left of the signature that sort of looks like an "L," but I am inclined to believe it is part of the woman's rendered…See More

"Hi Dusty, The Argent Saigon marking means that your piece is Vietnamese. I read on another forum that somebody had a condiment pot similar to yours, except it still had the liner. Interestingly, the liner was made of celluloid rather than…"
