I feel very lucky to have you come to my aid, and Sue, I will be VERY careful in disbursing this glass. ( and alot of other things). I have already learned from my mistakes! Most of what I have given away was to people who added to their own collections, dolls, figurines, etc. and to people who truly appreciated it. Now, my sister promptly took what I gave her to the pawn shops. Gee, if I had known, I would have at least bought them from her myself! :roll:
I can't keep everything, but I really love this little vase. (is it a vase? is it missing a stopper? How old is it?)
I have been at this project for 3 years now, and I'm ready to sell stuff. I really need another bathroom!! Or at least a tub that has jets. I am now looking for message boards for silver and paintings. The source of these pieces of history came from three generations of women who appraised and collected.
My heart belongs to the glass, tho.
I really need advise on insurance, altho I want to keep this little sweetie, I need to know value. I am basically a rookie here, do you know of any sites that are good for evaluating? I feel lucky to have this board, as I can find out what these different pieces are called, and there is too much to take to the appraisal sites, financially speaking.
I have browsed the Phoenix Glass site nonstop ever since you told me about it.....what a fantasy land! I could get lost in there! I am going to California in September for my daughter's wedding, and I will try to plan a visit, I'm sure I can do that. Anyone want to go to California with me?!?!?!?
