This carved bamboo figurine is 13.5" high. The figure is wearing gracefully flowing robes and is holding a lotus blossom in the right hand. There is also a carved lotus blossom on the chest, and the figure appears to be standing on a lotus blossom base. The image may be Kwan Yin, goddess of mercy. There is nice carving for the long hair and the robes in the back, as well as the front. Bamboo is difficult to carve. The figure is certainly of Asian origin, possibly Chinese, but I am not sure. It dates to about 1890-1900, but I cannot be precise. The condition is very good, with a very minor, shallow age crack on the back at the base. No other breaks, chips or other damage.

This rarely found vintage, retired Lladro is called Boy Jewelry Dish. It is #4714 and was produced 1970-1978, sculpted by Salvador Furio. It is 7" high, 6-3/4" wide at the base. This piece is especially rare, because it is bisque or unglazed porcelain, which renders the colors softer than they appear in the more common glazed version. This Lladro was purchased in Spain in the early 1970's and brought back to the U.S., which may account for the rare bisque finish. The condition is excellent, no repairs and even the fingers are in pristine condition.

This relief molded jug in light green is 8-1/2" high and is known as Silenus or Bacchus. The handle is the same light green color as the body of the jug, although the photo makes the handle appear darker. It is marked on the bottom with an early Minton mark and dates to about 1831. Before glass and plastic containers were widely available to hold liquids, especially wine, such decorative stoneware pitchers were made in various sizes and colors. Even though these jugs had a utilitarian function, they were decorated like sculptures, and this jug is especially sculptural with its figures almost in three dimensions. The full figure images of Bacchus all around the jug reference the fact that the jug is meant to hold wine. Kathy Hughes describes the decoration in A Collector's Guide to Nineteenth-Century Jugs, Vol. I, p. 39, "[There is] a Silenus group of three in extremely high relief on each side. Grapevines adorn the green stoneware body and twine around the handle." This jug is in excellent condition and was obviously treasured throughout the almost 200 years of its life.

This relief molded jug in a buff or light mustard color is 7-1/2" high. It is marked on the bottom with the Ridgway anchor and vase mark and dates to about 1830. Before glass and plastic containers were widely available to hold liquids, especially wine, such decorative stoneware pitchers were made in various sizes and colors. Even though these jugs had a utilitarian function, they were decorated like sculptures. The images of Bacchus on the sides of the jug reference the fact that the jug is meant to hold wine. Kathy Hughes describes the decoration in A Collector's Guide to Nineteenth-Century Jugs, Vol. I, p. 28, "Two masks of Bacchus, the Greek God of Revelry, are set against scrolls, acanthus leaves, and stylized anthemions. . . .A bust of Pan with pipes is moulded into the handle." There are two small holes placed by the manufacturer near the top rim and the handle, which would have accommodated a Britannia metal lid. It is not clear whether the lid was never affixed or whether it is gone. In any case the absence of the lid does not devalue the piece, and it is a question of personal preference. This jug is in excellent condition and was obviously treasured throughout the almost 200 years of its life.

This pendant is 2" high by 1-1/4" wide and it weighs 16.8 dwt. or 26.7 g. It is formed with a large, unpolished lapis of deep blue color surrounded by a frame of 18K yellow gold. There are sea creatures applied to the stone: a shell at the bottom, a starfish with diamond center at right, a crab with sapphire eyes. At the top is a whimsical octopus that forms the bail with diamond eyes and two diamonds in the legs. The octopus also functions to hold the stone in place at the top and bottom. Incredibly, I have found no maker's mark on this extraordinary piece, and I suspect that it may have been produced by a special jewelry artist. I have tested the gold and guarantee that it is 18K. The piece dates to about the 1970's and the condition is excellent.

This large two handled Rookwood standard glaze vase is 7-1/4" high, approximately 7" wide across the middle. The mark on the bottom dates the vase to 1896 with the cypher of the artist Sallie Toohey, who worked for Rookwood from 1887 to 1931. The condition is excellent, no chips cracks. There are a couple of minor scratches on the back and a small fleabite on the bottom rim, which is not visible from the top. Under very high magnification there is the typical fine crazing throughout, common in Rookwood, but it is not visible to the naked eye, at least to my naked eye.

This Rookwood standard glaze ewer is 6-1/4" high. The base is 6" in diameter and forms a very dramatic and graceful shape with the slender neck that flares out to the organic flower or leaf shaped spout. The mark on the bottom dates the piece to 1897 with the cipher for the artist Carl Schmidt, who worked for Rookwood from 1896-1926. The condition is excellent, no chipping or cracks, just the usual fine crazing throughout. The white horizontal line on the left side of the base is merely a light reflection in the photo.

This 14K yellow gold ring is about a size 7-3/4 and can be sized. Since the shank is wide in the front, it is necessary to allow an extra 1/4 - 1/2 size over your normal size. The ring is 1/2 inch wide at the front, 1/4 inch wide at the back and weighs 8.2 g. or 5.3 dwt. There are eight diamond baguettes, about 5 pts. each, set vertically in the front. In the center is a 6 mm round prong set amethyst of very fine, deep color. The ring could be worn as it is, or used as a setting to showcase another colored stone like a sapphire or ruby or a diamond. The ring dates to about the 1960's, and the condition is excellent.

This pair of earrings is one inch in diameter. The large mabe pearls in the center are 18 mm surrounded by a graceful swirling frame in 14K yellow gold which is 3/16" wide. The pearls are 1/2" high and have excellent luster. The backs are omega clips without a post. A post can be added, and I can have this done for you. Sometimes, however, a large earring like this fits better without the post; it depends on how your ears are pierced. The earrings date to about the 1970's, and the condition is excellent.
