The sun is going down, its the end of the day, and the cowboy is heading home. The rider is on the lead horse pulling two supply horses behind. The landscape is clearly western. Jack Woods is the artist and is a Taos, New Mexico artist from the 1960s and 70s. Painted oil on board, this is in the old original frame and looks as if it it has weathered like the landscape like the scene.

These mosaic earrings have unbelievable detail and a very definite blue coloration. The flowers are outlined in rope edging with a screw backing, the plating is worn from the backing of these earrings as they were the favorite of the former owner. The lady bought them in the 1950s in New York, no makers name, they are about the size of an American Nickel and the pinkish or lavender colors of the outer edges make a good color combination with the rich blue. These are the height of style in the 1950s and retro or collectors would love a pair of the micro mosaics.
Different colored roses are featured in the center with gold trim surrounding in a floral motif. The piece has a definite late Victorian look and would be of interest to those who like decorative floral pieces.
Everybody loves pretty glass paperweights and this is certainly an interesting piece. The different layers of the yellows, reds, blues and greens almost resemble cupcake cups stacked on each other all compressed into a star form that is very colorful and appealing. The pontil mark on the bottom and the wear on the base show use and the entire surface has a very few small nicks that make the piece more appealing. This could have been on your Grandparents desk and you just inherited it. A great traditional piece.
