This bowl is excellent quality and has a lot of work involved, but it's unmarked, always a bit frustrating. The glass itself is hand made with Cut and Stained Glass Bowl base shotruby-stained panels with cross-hatch cutting plus floral cutting. The gold in the floral cutting is well-worn, which often happens, but this is a beautiful piece of work, and I really wish that I knew who deserved the credit. I've seen similar ruby and crosshatch work on German glass, but I've seen floral cutting much like this in design and execution on French and American glass. Best guess is early 20th century.

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.

What's "Gin-For"? Strictly medicinal purposes.
