LATE 1800's EARLY 1900's ANTIQUE VICTORIAN, BRASS ORIENTAL CALLIGRAPHY BRUSH TRAY, with birds, houses(?) and water, JAPANESE OR CHINESE, A WORK OF ART, 2 3/4" X 14", made of brass and the decoration has great detail, the decoration comes through to the reverse side, but not in as much detail.  There are 3 groups of 4 holes through the tray.  I do not know why they are there, but I am confident they are original to the piece. The tray has a lovely (although uneven) original patina.  I was told the dark spots of patina will come right off with a low abrasive polish, but I do not believe in messing with patina as I prefer the older patina.  I will leave it up to the buyer to decide what s/he prefers. It is a fairly heavy piece for its size.  I got about 7 oz. Very Good condition. The tray is straight and has no dents.  There does not appear to be any scratches on it.  The only defect I see is the uneven patina which has created dark spots on it.     #MIJ31130     $50.00

VINTAGE JAPANESE MAN WITH FAN TIKI MUG, I think from the 1960's, It is a white piece -- not creamy as it look in my photos, bottom stick says "Orchids of Hawaii, Japan, Art No. R ", 6 3/4" high, excellent condition    #MIJ31132    $20.00
 

1950's - '60's FIRE EXTINGUISHER DECANTER/MUSIC BOX, wind-up plays "How Dry I Am" when you pick it up, under extinguisher top handle is a plastic lined chrome pour spout, this is not a shaker, 11 7/8" high by 3 1/2" in diameter, metal outer case surrounded with red vinyl (more of a true red than my photo shows), glass interior to hold liquid, red reads "Thirst Extinguisher, Dispense freely for best results, To refill call your host, Approved by underwriters fire chief, Keep available for emergencies" in metallic silver lettering, very good condition, plays well, a couple of light scuffs on the red, some wear on the lettering including the "F" in Freely is missing
part of the letter and the last "L" in Refill is mostly missing;  Plus oddly (although it is not really obvious), there is no space between the "l" and the "y" in "Call Your Host" and     #25411    $22.00

SIMILAR TO ABOVE IN BLACK, looks the same as above except that it is black instead of red, it has a cork stopper instead of a plastic one so I thin it is older, excellent condition with some mild wear on the outside vinyl, no spacing error    #25411   $28.00 ....

LARGE POTTERY BASSET FIGURINE, marked "Japan", 
7 1/2" high X 8" long, with the original K-mart sticker "$19.97". This sticker has me confused.  Without the sticker, I would have guesstimated the figurine to be from the 1950's or  1960's.  Because the price is so high, it seems it must be from later (maybe 1970's), very good condition, no cracks or chips, but the paint  has worn off (or never was there) in many places on the head and back    #HD25104    $20.00
.

VERY CUTE 1950's - 60's CRYING/INJURED DOG FIGURINE, pottery with "Japan" sticker on bottom, 3 " high x 4 1/2" long, excellent condition with some wear on the paint of his bandages

#BX27743    US  $14.00

1920's BLACK METAL BULLDOG ON  ART DECO METAL BASE, made of a soft white metal, marked "Made in Japan", I am not certain what this is as it has a  small and thin metal hoop on the the point in front of the bulldog, from the collection of David Leavitt  -- founder of the Olde English Bulldogge breed (Leavitt Bulldogs breed), about 4 1/2" long x 2" high, fair to good condition -- there is a slight bending of the base away from the dog figure sitting on top of it, but you really do not notice that  until you look at the bottom of the piece, paint wear on the dog and the bas and the base back, base back also has scratches    #BD30521    #24.00  ....

.

1950's SETTER HEAD DOOR STOP OR SINGLE BOOK END,  setter is brown color,  marked "Made In Japan", filled with sand and stopped with a cork, I am afraid to take the cork out for fear it will break, your choice and your risk though, near mint condition    #SP26961    $18.00
