Follow Up Comments On Tuesday's Article On ÿ6 Essential Tips for Managing Your Collection From InValuable

1.The information about managing your collections was a very valuable article. We should all follow some or all of the guidelines discussed.

But, one should NEVER collect solely for investment. If ones collection increases in value over the years that is a plus. But we should collect for the enjoyment of the piece or pieces and revel in the thrill of the "hunt" to obtain new pieces to augment what we already own.

One need only to look at the high-end antique furniture market to see that rare 18th century highboys that brought seven figure prices at auction 15 - 20 years ago are now the the low six figure range.

Collect for the enjoyment not for investment and you will never be disappointed.

2.Re AXA Art Insurance: your members should know that this is a Paris based company.

ÿ Personally, should I have a claim, I would not feel comfortable with a company that was not in the US. Paula Ellman

Some Clarification Is In Order On Metal Work

Dear Gazelle Gazette,

These are beautiful products I did not know Carder produced.

I am not a learned Carder member as you can tell.

Thank you for this Gazette!

Some Clarification Is In Order

Lynda, on certain items metal work is incorporated, such as the vase above and certainly for lamps. Likely, the metal work was done by third parties and not by Steuben. Perhaps, someone with more knowledge will share some background on the subject.

One Thing Leads To Another About The Color Green

Michael's green sill vase, #6199, in the ship holder, has a twin in San Diego. I have never been able to figure out what shade of green it is. As it is non-reactive, it can't be Pomona, and the color occurs in several other pieces in my collection. Number 6114, in the shape listing shows both a finger bowl and a square-footed goblet of that color, which the website identifies as simply 'green." Also the thistle bowls and goblets, one of which is shown as "0" in the 'shapes' is of the same hue. All of these seem to be of the same color, when I put them side by side.

Thanks to Rande's investigations, we have been able to identify most of the greens, except this one, and the green that is used for stems in the Oriental Poppy pieces. The generic term 'green' was originally applied to the early Carder blanks that were finished by Hawkes, and as well for the Carder-era pieces noted above.
