"I just discovered another system used on some monuments (tombstones). There is a metal tubular insert that holds the vase inside when not in use.  When used the insert is removed, the vase is withdrawn, the insert is replaced and the vase sits…"

"You're right, the NEW ones do.  The old ones had their spout like yours. Look on line for "OLD Boy scout canteens". When it opens click Images, find yours."

"Can you double check your measurements. I'm thinking you might have the top and bottom reversed. If you are correct then my idea is not. It looks like a funerary vase for a tombstone. When not in use they are stored upside down in a hole in the…"

"I don't see a question. Ebay shows a same size, different scene, asking$15.00 USD. To restore (?) your plate I'd guess $150-$250.cost. Would then (after restoration) be worth $1.50 or less. When you advertise and say it was broken/repaired…"

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!

Thank you for the welcome Tom! First of all I am in Northern CA not too far from the Oregon border, kinda halfway between the border and San Francisco on the Coast. Appreciate the offer of help. I own and operate The Blue Ox. My specialties include lamps of all kinds, sewing machines and other mechanical oddities, and Arts and Crafts era furniture and farm equipment and tools including tractors. I'm an antiques dealer, auctioneer and handle estate sales. I do repairs on lamps and antique furniture including upholstery. I've been in the antique business on and off since 1965. Best regards!

"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.
