    Antique malls across America display hundreds of examples of every conceivable shape, size, age, condition, and decoration of American stoneware pottery, and among them are extremely valuable pieces that might go unnoticed, unless you know how value is determined in today's marketplace. There have been several recent sales of cobalt decorated stoneware that have sold for more than $400,000! In the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver, Colorado I've found a couple of really special examples that we'll discuss in this week's show. One is a 5 gallon salt glaze crock by Cooper & Power of Maysville, Kentucky (one of their 1/2 gallon pitchers recently sold at auction for more than $17,000), and the other is a great 3 gallon beehive jug from Wheeling, West Virginia. I haven't been able to find comps by this maker, a Richard Nolan. Both are very reasonably priced to sell. We'll also examine about 12 other pieces of stoneware pottery currently for sale in the Mall, and discuss value on them as well. Please tune in at the usual time this coming Sunday, November 27, 2016: 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Gary

      MAKING A COMEBACK: TURNTABLES  Believe it or not, turntables (aka record players/phonographs) have made a huge comeback. The question most people ask is “Why”. Sure it’s nostalgic but there is much more to it than that. Vinyl records simply sound better than the sound from a CD player, MP3 player or the sound coming from a smart phone or IPOD. Playing a vinyl record harkens back to when families sat around phonographs listening to the beautiful sound emanating from the records. Take a look around The Brass Armadillo and you will see lots of dealers offering vinyl records for sale and maybe a turntable or two. Turntables offer a vastly superior way of playing music, providing a purer and higher quality sound. Most listening music today is recorded in analogue and played back in analogue, compressed, emailed and played back off some pretty terrible sound producing devices." Sometime in the near future, take a look and listen to a record being played on a turntable – you’ll be amazed at the high quality of the sound compared to your cell phone or gadget. There is a wonderful richness of sound that you won’t find any place else.

    Flow Blue pottery remains one of the bright spots for collectors of Victoriana. In this week's show we'll take a look at the history of Flow Blue beginnng in the Regency period in Staffordshire and continuing up through the mid 20th century in America. It was always most prized in the U.S., not in its home country, and sometime in the 1960's collectors began to bid up prices, particularly for the early pieces. We'll look at a few representative examples, both British & American, and analyze qualities & values. It was very surprising to me that so few pieces of true Flow Blue are for sale here at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver. If you check out prices being paid on ebay, you can begin to understand why it's so scarce. Please join us this coming Sunday evening, November 20, 2016 for this week's show. We're on at the usual time: 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Gary
