I may be getting desperate. The auctions have been few and far between and each is stuffed with other dealers and auctionholics in need of inventory. The pickin's have been pretty slim and most of the "good" stuff has been selling for prices that are higher than my retail sales point.
Last night I may have purchased clear evidence of my desperation. I bought this umbrella stand. I think that it is Weller pottery. but I haven't done any research on that yet. As you can see, it has a few minor chips.
The whole damn thing is poorly glued together. Oh my! As I said, I may be getting desperate.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
