I’ll have to check out the sale. What’s your first impression of the book?
I might spray it with the Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and RubNBuff the high points, to make it a different color than the spheres. It is my go -to treatment.
Bobbiejo? Did you find this in a store or antique/resale shop? Love it n itd be my familiars holding my seeing ball. Im still trying to find stands that arent dinky nothings. Just checked earthbound .. zip nadaI stumbled across this today. While it’s a smaller stand, it’s pretty weighty. I particularly like the detail on the cats. No markings, so I have no idea who or where it was made. The sales sticker simply said vintage stand. I’ve included pictures of it with two different size spheres. Anyone seen this stand before?

I found it at a place called BlueMoon Gift Shop in Wilmington, NC. The store is comprised of individual sellers (booth rental) selling both new and old stuff. I’m not sure where this seller got the cat stand, but there was only one available, so I don’t think contacting them will produce another stand. Maybe look online for cat sphere stands?Bobbiejo?

I know he’s cute isn’t he! I don’t know why I hesitated. Ok, maybe I do. It was just after the holidays, which is always a time when i like to give my wallet a break. And he was $30. So I didn’t buy him because I asked myself, “do you REALLY need another crystal ball?” But then a few weeks later I bought the elephant, and then I told myself, see, now you need the monkey because you have all these other animals sitting on crystal balls and you should have him too! Oh, and I bought another snake one similar to the one we bought at earthbound trading.....forgot to take a pic of that one. The maker of them is Christian Siriano, so if you happen to research it and find it (I tried and did an extensive search and only found one on eBay that someone was trying to sell for $300 — not happening!) or if you happen to find them in store, please keep me in mind. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it ever since I bought the elephantOMG! So many I’ve missed out on! I want that monkey 🐒 crystal ball!
