October 18, 2017 The Julian News 13 Plenty of FREE Parking Antiques a Collecting By Terry and Kim Kovel There Were ALLIS AMES pple Tree 765-1111 2902 Washington Street, Julian CA 92036 RickJulianAppleTree@gmail. com A lucky bidder bought this 19th- century French "nodder" by Jacob Petit for $562. Each head has a long, heavy neck that rests on the shoulders of the figure. It is inserted into the figure's neck hole and swings back and forth, making the head "nod" when touched. Two types of collectors bid for a porcelain figure of a well- dressed French couple that was sold at a Southern auction in 2016. A 14-inch-high Asian sorcerer and his companion wearing brightly decorated clothes were "nodders." The heads moved and looked as if they were nodding "yes" when the figures were moved. Nodders were first made in China in the late 1600s, often showing a smiling, agreeable Buddha. By Victorian times in England, toys were made with nodding heads, as well as decorative porcelain figures of all kinds that could nod '!yes" or ' no"-or even-have playing a piano.. ';Because of the nodders' entertainment as well as decorative value, they were collected in the 1900s. Many new and fake nodders appeared on the market. The second group of bidders probably collected porcelains by Jacob Petit's company, a French firm that made many decorative porcelains from the early 1800s to 1862. The successful bid for the nodder was $562. Q: Two years ago, I bought an American Federal one-drawer stand that was made in about 1815. The description said the drawer has "rare Vaseline glass pulls that appear to be original." I had no idea what Vaseline glass was, so I looked up the information on the internet. I'm concerned that the glass color is due to radiation emission, and I wonder about its safety. One of the pulls has a crack. Does this increase radiation emission? I have grandchildren who visit frequently and have relegated this piece of furniture to a little- used room. I'm considering selling this stand. A: You can test the knobs on your stand to see if they are Vaseline glass by holding one under a black light. Vaseline glass will glow a neon greenish- yellow color because it contains a small amount of uranium dioxide. You don't have to worry, though, because they are not exposing you or your grandchildren to harmful amounts of radiation. Even though the knobs may contain very small amounts of uranium,, it is less than what you get from the atmosphere and things that occur naturally every day. It is safe to use your stand. Radiation won't leak out of a crack in the glass. Tip: Wear cotton gloves when cleaning any type of metal. Oils in the skin will leave a mark. Sign up for our free weekly email, ,'Kovels Komments."
