Geisha Girl porcelain was sold often in dime stores written on the date she received it.
Q: I read your column in The Gainesville Sun and was wondering if you can inform me of any information of the pictures I have included.
This hand-painted chocolate pot was made in Japan, likely before World War I. [Submitted photo]
The pot was given to my mother by a friend of her grandmothers. There was a partial note inside the pot explaining how it was given to her grandmother and the date on the note was 1942. I came in possession of the pot about 10 years ago when my mother gave it to my wife and myself. Just recently we were cleaning out our china closet and found the note inside the pot and the note looks like it was
I would like to know what it is worth and if we should insure it. Any information would be helpful. Thank you. — C.C., internet A: The hand-painted chocolate pot was made in Japan, likely before World War I. It is referred to as Geisha Girl porcelain. The decoration on the pot depicts Geishas in a landscape. Geishas were pretty young women trained as singers, dancers, and companions for men. Geisha Girl porcelain was inexpensive porcelain sold often in dime stores and occasionally also used as free premiums for groceries, gasoline, et cetera. Potential dollar value is $15 to $30.
Q: I so enjoy reading your column and have saved many of your articles for reference. I am writing to you about a cedar chest that was a wedding present to my parents when they married in 1933. We have never seen another cedar chest like this. A copy of the manufacturer’s stamp is enclosed. I have tried to research the company without much success. We are planning on selling the cedar chest but need some advice on the value and the best way to proceed. Any information you can give us is greatly appreciated. — M.E., Ocala A: The style of your cedar chest is often referred to as Depression Era furniture. During the 1920s to ‘30s furniture manufacturers looked back to earlier period
styles for inspiration. The cedar chest you have displays styles taken from the 17th century in England. Currently there is very little interest in the style and when sold brings very little money. The maker of the chest, E.R.Co., is not a manufacturer of any interest in the antiques furniture category. I suggest you pass it on in the family. If you were to get more than $100 it would be a lucky day.

Make your laundry room somewhere you actually want to spend time laundry space, Nordin recommends Chasing Paper. “They make really cute removable wallpapers that I’ve been using in some laundry rooms and bathrooms,” she says. “They are budgetfriendly and easy to take down. Even if you only have one small strip of wall between cabinetry, a great paper with personality will make it feel fresh and fun.”

By Jura Koncius The Washington Post
Your laundry area, whether it’s a tiny closet or a corner of the basement, can actually be a happy place. In a recent Washington project, Jessica Centella and Kiera Kushlan of Residents Understood designed a laundry space as part of a total basement renovation. Their client, who loves pink, wanted something fun with storage and a sink suitable for bathing dogs. The designers decided a patterned tile would add some spice to the tight space. “White tile was definitely not happening,” Centella says. “We wanted a unique color combination that you don’t see everywhere.” At Home Depot, they discovered Merola Egeo Quios encaustic porcelain tiles with an orange, green, black and pink Moroccan-style motif. They installed them on the floor and halfway up the walls, painted the rest of the
room with Benjamin Moore’s Super White in eggshell finish, added shelving and installed a farmhousestyle Randolph Morris cast-iron sink. “I would encourage people to think about laundry spaces like they do the rest of the rooms in the house,” Centella says. Here are some ways to refresh, energize and bring joy to the place where you wash your socks. Tile the floors
“Tile is the best pick for a high-moisture environment like a laundry room,” Centella says, “especially a laundry room in a basement where flooding is a more likely scenario. Porcelain in particular is extremely water-durable.” Patterned floor tile is definitely having a moment. Stone likes porcelain and ceramic tile for floors because they offer a lot of color and pattern options. Cement tile is another option, she says, but beware, because cement
might have to be resealed frequently in high-traffic areas. Stuart Nordin, a Richmond, Virginia, designer, says you can never go wrong with classic white subway tile, even if it’s just for a backsplash: “It elevates the overall look of a room and adds another layer of dimension and interest.” Washington designer Josh Hildreth says old concrete floors in basement laundry rooms can be made less dungeon-like by stenciling them, if you’re DIY-inclined. If not, just giving them a coat of fresh paint can be life-changing. Hildreth recalls painting the basement laundry room floor of one of his first places after college in red, and taking the red paint up the wall about 28 inches. Have fun with the walls
Don’t just paint the walls white. Wallpaper can turn a tiny room into pure eye candy. If you worry about the humidity in your
New York designer Sheila Bridges is a big fan of using wallpaper for impact. “One of my favorite things to do in a small laundry room is to install a bright and cheery wipeable wallpaper,” she says. “No reason to make doing laundry a chore, even if your laundry room is in a basement.” In her own Harlem apartment laundry station, she used a Harlem Toile de Jouy wallpaper of her own design in robin’s-egg blue. Hildreth sometimes takes a hint from old British manor houses when designing laundry spaces. “Give it a Downton Abbey look,” he says. Such details would include adding traditional beadboard or wainscotting to dress up and protect walls. And look for big wicker baskets, he says, as opposed to using plastic laundry bins. Accessorize with storage
Speaking of laundry baskets, could yours use replacing? Take a good look at the baskets and bins around your washer and dryer. Bridges likes baskets for detergent and laundry made of various materials including seagrass from West
Elm, recycled plastic from Serena & Lily and water hyacinth from the Container Store. She’s also fond of using indoor/outdoor rugs that are washable or wipeable and won’t get damaged if they get wet. “Go for anything that makes laundry less of a chore,” says Meg Wittman, a Neat Method professional organizer. Upgrade your appliances
Some of the latest machines are targeted toward millennials looking for efficient internet-connected products and condominium dwellers looking for spacesaving solutions. According to Joshua Stumacher, Samsung product marketing director, Samsung’s 6300 Smart Front Load Washer has Wi-Fi connectivity that tells you when a cycle is complete, and it has faster speeds so you can do a full load in 30 minutes. To go with some of the warmer wood tones showing up in laundry room design, Samsung recently added a champagne finish option to some of its models. Most space-strapped consumers still prefer the larger-capacity 27-inch-wide models vs. 24-inch models, says Brendan Bosch, Whirlpool’s marketing director for laundry appliances. So, Whirlpool designed a shallower “closetdepth” 27-inch washer and dryer to fit into more compact places. Some have a “load and go” feature that allows you to put 40 loads worth of detergent in a machine, alleviating the need to store big
containers of detergent. Create a folding area
If you have a sideby-side washer and dryer, consider putting a counter on top. If you’re doing a lot of renovating, you might use the same counter material as you have in your kitchen. For those with stacking units and no extra counter space, Nordin says to try a wall-mounted collapsible table. “Put a painting or photo on the bottom so it masquerades as a framed piece of art when not in use as a folding station,” she says. Make an effort to make your folding area attractive. “Even in an old, dark basement, there are things you can do without spending a lot of money,” Hildreth says. For a nice folding surface, he suggests finding an old farm table at a yard sale or flea market, or painting an old dining table. It’s nice to also upgrade the lighting (especially in a basement): A new fixture, Hildreth adds, such as the retrolooking Rejuvenation Carson or Abigail flushmount lights, would make the area brighter and cheerier. Make it multitask
When square footage is at a premium, laundry rooms can be multipurpose, combined with an entryway, utility room, home office, giftwrapping station or pet-care area. Build in room for bulk supply storage or places for household basics such as light bulbs or tools. Consider how you can use the space most efficiently.

I recommend installing a wall-hung vanity (sometimes called a floating vanity). Since the vanity hangs on the wall without any bottom supports, all the space under the vanity is open.
Q: Dear Ed: We’re completely remodeling
A: I have an idea that opens up space in a tight bathroom and allows for storage space as well.
Plus, since it is a vanity sink in place of a standard wall-hung bathroom sink, you get the benefit of added cabinet space. Some models even include pull out draws and

By Neal J. Leitereg and Jack Flemming Los Angeles Times (TNS)
LOS ANGELES — Tom Petty’s scenic retreat has finally found a fan. The Lake Sherwood villa that was owned by the late rocker at the time of his death has sold for $4 million. Petty paid $4.41 million for the property in 2007, and after multiple years of relists and price cuts, it was most recently offered for $4.695 million. Olive and cypress trees surround the hilltop estate, which centers on a stone-clad home built in 1931. Spanning three stories above Lake Sherwood, the villa is awash in Old World details. A centerpiece great room features 2-foot-thick stone walls, beamed ceilings and flagstone floors. Saltillo tile floors accent the family room and kitchen. In the dining room, French doors open to a balcony overlooking the lake. The 5,300-squarefoot interior also holds three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The most impressive by far is the master suite, which features a sauna-like bathroom with a deep stone tub and a private balcony with a fireplace. Outside, stone pathways descend to 125 feet of water frontage, as well as a boat ramp and dock. Petty, who died in 2017 at 66, gained fame
in the late ‘70s as the front man of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The group’s hits include “Breakdown,” “Free Fallin’” and “Don’t Do Me Like That.” The singer-songwriter later embarked on a successful solo career that included the albums “Full Moon Fever” and “Highway Companion.” A Midcentury move for Maroon 5’s James Valentine They may not be moves like Jagger, but James Valentine is certainly making moves. The Maroon 5 guitarist has listed his Los Feliz home for sale at $3.785million and bought a Toluca Lake home from megaproducer Dana Brunetti for $6.4 million. The home Valentine is selling, a striking Midcentury Modern residence built in 1960, is known as the Steel House for its steel construction and cantilevered wing. Architect Neil A. Johnson drew inspiration from the postwar Arts & Architecture Case Study House program when designing the residence. A recent restoration by Mark Haddawy has brought it back to its original form. Set on a knoll with city-light views, the single-story home epitomizes cool California modernism with its clean lines, overhanging eaves and walls of glass. Some 2,100 square feet
of interior features terrazzo floors, beamed ceilings and an open floor plan. A suspended fireplace serves as the focal point in the living room. A garden-view dining room and an updated kitchen sit off the living room area. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The flat-roofed residence sits on about a third of an acre and has a swimming pool with a spa, a cold plunge and
a sauna. A carport is below the house. Valentine’s new residence was built by Toluca Lake pioneer William Klump in the 1920s. Among features of the 6,500-squarefoot house are modern fixtures, Kentucky oak herringbone floors and a marble-clad kitchen. Curved French doors, wood paneling and a vintage phone alcove speak to the home’s 1920s roots. The quarter-acre
property was previously owned by Eurythmics singer-songwriter Dave Stewart and TV producer Mark Brazill. Silent-film star Billie Dove, Oscar-winning actress Janet Gaynor and Park French, the original architect of Toluca Lake, are among others to have lived there. Valentine, 40, was part of the musical trio Square and also played with the ska band Reel Big Fish before joining Kara’s Flowers, later renamed Maroon 5, in
the early 2000s. The group is known for such hits as “Harder to Breathe,” “Makes Me Wonder” and “Moves Like Jagger.” Brunetti, 46, has producer credits that include the acclaimed Netflix series “House of Cards” and the films “21” and “Mastermind.” His films “The Social Network” and “Captain Phillips” both received Oscar nominations for best picture.
