I came across a photo of my cat Chester, in which he looks really mean.... Thought I'd make it into a poster... or 3 or 4 posters.

Fostoria Baroque Depression Glass, Green

Fostoria Baroque Elegant Depression Glass, Green. I think the designer was George Sakier who designed a lot of glass for Fostoria. For this set I have the 3 stick candelabras and also the bowl!  Photo taken of my display shelf.

Inuit Ivory (walrus tusk)Bear Salt/Pepper Shakers, circa 1920s

Here are some photos I took of 4 walrus-tusk-ivory bear salt/pepper shakers my grandmother acquired in 1920s Alaska.  Probably Inuit.


Here are some unusual Fostoria Baroque pattern candle holders, in Red-Amberina and Purple (Amethyst).  I also Baroque green, cobalt blue, and wisteria (pale lavender). I'll be taking photos in the next few days.

Book Covers and Christmas Cards

Browsing thru Amazon's Kindle Regencys I came across this book, which I naturally purchased.  I thought I'd add another picture for the cover.  Can't review the book, as I haven't read it yet, but it looks promising.  I'm rather flattered that they used my image, but [tossing head]. I wish I'd got a little credit, maybe a link to my (long neglected because my daughter HOGS the scanner all the time! Also I'm writing.) Blog.

I always wanted the gorgeous fashion plates from Ackermann's, Costume Parisien, Ladies Magazine (and others) to be used as book covers, and its gratifying to see it finally being done, though sadly, not very well. At least, not as well as my efforts.

This original print is in such great condition it really didn't need any fixing up. But I did anyway. Note the "V" in the lower left corner. I believe that is the signature of the artist, H Vernet.

La Belle Assemblee Sept 1807

I'm having difficulty scanning from the center of the book, as you can see by the blurring on the left side of the fashion plate.  I finally broke down and ordere a "hand scanner", which will arrive some time next week.
