"Good job, Michael!
It sure looked like a ceramic piece to me, but when Lisa said she could not figure out the materials used, I began to focus on the bottom. I guess I still don't understand the "glue and paper" look, unless it…"
"Funny that you should say that, because I found some that looked very similar to Zeke's, but they all had compasses within. I could not say anything about the metal because I could not really tell...that is why I looked for a pewter item…"
"That is a tough one...what I have been looking at is the type of pewter and the hinges and I found this one, which for some reason makes me think yours might be around this time. No idea, really, just a…"
I found two little monogrammed (trinket/candy) dishes today for $.50 a piece. They say sterling loud as day but I would like help figuring out how old they are, from where and what a couple of the "hallmarks" mean. Thank you in advance.See More
"The way I understood it, there might be 3 or 4 painters that might specialize in a certain kind of effect, subject matter, style, etc. and that they would all add their individual skills to the paintings. The name was fictitious, or at least…"

Hi Miss Molly... Yes maem you can reach me on this sight . One way or another I'm going to learn the downloading side to this computer and it will be better. I have been Soo busy here in Kingman this week and seems all I've been doing is running. Fri. is my day off and was thinking of going over to Phoenix to see one of my grandsons play football. Not sure yet though. He had a game planned in Las Vegas for their first game but the other schools students went on strike believe it or not because of the DACA news here in Az.
Hi there Miss Molly, I hope your day is treating you well. It's my intention to get more pictures out there but I'm having a heck of a time downloading or having any luck at all . It's frustrating but with my own patience I'll figure it out . And believe me I have more to show and everything I post is for sale to anyone who see's their item I have and they want . But for now it's off to the shopping center . Oh boy how I Love that , ( not ) but when you realize the milk jug is empty and the butter tray too you must remind yourself there's no cereal & toast for the next morning ... Darnit .off to the store I go .I'll be back soon
Well Miss Molly I hope your evening finds you well in Mi. as Az. is having a mellow evening. I was born in Detroit quite a few years ago in Henry Ford hospital and see how we managed to find something in common right off the bat? Lol Your smart to stay watchful for the one's who perhaps are on this sight with different intentions and I think it's better to be safe than Sorry... But getting back to Mi. , yes I grew up in Melvindale and when I turned 12 the family moved to Westland. I graduated at Cherry Hill in Inkster in 1978. A couple years after that I found myself out here in Az. and been here ever since. Kingman Az. to be accurate. It gets mighty Hot and sometimes I think I'm going to melt but just enough to aggravate. My heart goes out for the folks in Texas as the wrath of Mother Nature takes her stand. I thank you again for the friending as I enjoy meeting new people and mostly that I found this sight. I received another response thinking the ring is a Vintage almost Antique Lapis. I was given another sight to look more info on so with that I will close and check it out. Have a Blessed night and Take care, Lorraine.
Well Miss Molly I certainly agree where social media is concerned as you really don't know what's on the other side of a chat or so forth. I stay pretty much to home if I get on line. Mostly with just my family or co-workers. But thank you for not being to nervous of me as I'm just Soo new to this sight and I really have found out quite a bit of info concerning some of my questions. The ring I have is more black than anything and I'm pretty familiar with Lapis but I'm thankful to get anyone's input. The setting is a different shape and it just looks older than younger. If that makes any sense. I have too much to learn as I know some but just that , some... How I have managed to get a house full of knick knacks as I have wasn't something I was trying for but Whew, It's ridiculous what I've accumulated. Do you collect anything personal Miss Molly? Possibility I have what it is.Thanks for your time and sure hope you don't live in Texas as them poor folks are getting Slammed with that after effect of that Harvey.
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details, Have a nice day
