tomsantiquesetcetera commented on C. Dianne Zweig Editor's Desk's group Whadja Find Today
"In researching I find a lot of  misspelled words.  They say "lully" when they mean "fully". This complicates research. The signature actually says galullys, or ga lullys,or simply lullys. If that was somebody's…"

"Gerri, I am unable to find any jewelry signed "galullys" 93, or w/o the 93. Lully is a surname, also Luly.  I also found a "GA: Lully" and a JC Lully, but no jewelry, pin or brooch makers."

"I'm not offended at all. Actually when I got to looking at all their (IOOF) symbols you are absolutely right, some of them do look like Masonic symbols. I'm not a member of either organization."

"IOOF is NOT affiliated with the Masons.  It is not secretive either. It is non-sectarian, non-religious and open to any adults. I grew up in Spokane, and there was an IOOF there. They have a kitchen, open to the public for lunch. I've…"

"Find it or buy it? Where? What did former owner tell you? What kind of animals are those? Size? Does it have a lid? Does lid come off? Show us a pic with lid off. What kind of wood is it?"

tomsantiquesetcetera replied to John Mallon's discussion Anyone recognize this artist and signature? in the group Whadja Find Today
"No, I don't. Sorry...however I recognize it says "To Ernie Davis" and that might be more valuable than the artist.  Ernie Davis was the 1961 Heisman Trophy Winner. He graduated from Syracuse Univ. Unfortunately Davis died of…"

"This is not a bracelet, it's a Mans' Cuff. The turquoise is called "popcorn turquoise" and is mined in Arizona. Some people like it. This style cuff is made by many Native Americans and retails (new) for $690. to $900. JM (Jim…"

"New...guess as I get older "new" gets older too. My mother toured Europe in early 1960s and sent me a Swedish ashtray in exact same shape, lilac color. So "new" is actually MCM (Mid-century modern, 1960s). Which is old to some…"

The painting in my Avatar is a Watercolor by Lavere Hutchings, titled "The Jupiter", 1979. It was the second rendering. First painting "At Rest" was chosen by Hallmark Cards and graced various greeting cards. At Rest is in print. Google it and compare the two. Hutchings states on the back of mine that it is the better of the two. At Rest sold for $85,000. Hutchings became famous as a Watercolorist. He died in 1998. He had2 Walter Foster "How to paint..." books and a text book used in schools, "Make Your Watercolors Sing".
My watercolor is for sale; am asking $150,000.

MARBLES SUMMARY FOR DEALERS

HI,

Dianne, IAO Editor-in-chief has asked me to write this Forum for the dealers. I am not an expert, but I have studied marbles intensely, have sold some on-line and spoken by e-mail to collector websites. The following is what I have discovered.



Marbles have been around for centuries. On line there are many, many websites devoted to marbles and history and some with prices. Glass artists today make beautiful marbles (small paperweights) and they sell for $350 and up. There are… Continue

Thanks, I still didn't get my text with the pic. I have Craig's list down pat and can usually keep up with the changes on Ebay. Luddite!

"I wonder if our paths ever crossed? I was a Yeoman at US Naval Nuclear Power Training Unit, IF, 8/62 to 7/65. Cdr Kauffman was the CO. I was Staff and never met very many students. I see now he is a retired Admiral. That oval-shaped picture of yours…"

Tom, thanks for the help with the portrait.  Yes, Changs does have the best Chinese food that I have had in the NW.  The portrait looks like it is a print not a painting. There does not seem to be any identification of any type on it although I have not removed it from the frame to see if there is anything on the bottom under the mat or on the back.  The mirror front when folded up is the American Indian portrait.  The frame is very ornate brass.  The portrait seems to be cardboard paper covered with some type of a glossy protective plastic finish.  There are no visible identifying marks on it either....frustrating.  It would be fun to take them both to Antique Roadshow.
