TOPIC: what is it

what is it 4 years 2 months ago #287

Does anyone know age or value?

Re:what is it 4 years 2 months ago #327

I have two lamps, man and woman, with beautiful detail. They have the name SC Ray Wever written on the back. Can any one tell me anything about them? I believe they are from about the 1920's or so. Yes it is WEVER on the name.

I hope someone can help me. I am looking for price information on these 2 chairs. The tag attached says Reg No PA 2649 (NC) Blowing Rock Furniture Industries / Lenoir / North Carolina. Please let me know if you have a chance or give me some hint of whom I should contact. Thank you very much. Alex.

Unusual Papier Mache Table w/Carved Animals 4 years 2 months ago #394

The story is this table came from a bordello in Pittsburgh. My parents obtained this table sometime in the early 80s. I always just called it the "cat table". I don't know if it's papier mache or not. In some small areas you can see down to the bare 'wood' and it appears to be made out of a material resembling compressed grocery store paper bags.

I've tried Googling papier mache tables but they are always black with a painted scene in the middle. This table is white and has 'carvings' around the tabletop. The carvings resemble a rainforest canopy with birds and animals. The animals look like fantasy creatures and don't quite resemble anything familiar. The table base has 3 carved cat-like beasts on it. They kind of look like jaguars.

I have pics but they are too large to post. I don't know how to shrink them so I made a Google doc slideshow...and why is my post appearing here? I selected 'new thread'....? Why is my post appearing as a reply? I have tried 3 times to make a new thread and it keeps coming up as a reply...?

Here's the Doc: https://docs.google.com/present/view?id=ddcbw6q_62fqb39qtj

Sorry I can't get better pics right now...the table is crammed in a small room with a bunch of stuff around it plus my camera flash isn't working.
