    Mr. Bellaire traded one of his vases for something my mother had made. Her signature name was usually “by Marzee.” Her initials were MVJ. Is it still in his collection? Would have been in the 60’s I think.

    I have a set that’s all white. It consist of a pitcher (appt 16″), 4 mugs and a fruit compote. I remember 60 years ago when my mother brought these into our home and put them in their “home” on the fireplace mantel. Loved them then as a little girl. They are on my mantel now. Love them now. Does anyone know their worth or history?

    I have 6 pieces of the Mardi Gras style. 2 vases, 1 covered candy dish, 1 large ash tray, one small ash tray and one TV lamp that still works. I am curious about the TV lamp it is a round ball that the light comes out of the rear, it is made to place on top of the
    TV. I have never seen one anywhere else, can I get some information about his collections what he made. Thank you

    I also have a painting by Marc Bellaire. It is a 4 x4 foot canvas painting of an American Indian that my parents commissioned in 1988 through the La Quinta Trading Company. My parents had a 2nd home in Palm Springs and they had it decorated in Southwestern motif. I would like to sell this painting but don’t know where and to whom.

    I have two marc bellaire paintings on canvas. Very large 4 ft by 6 ft. commissioned work.
    Done in 1991 -92 Palm Springs…actually Cat City as it is known. We lived in the desert at
    the time. Can you direct me to any information on his paintings and perhaps some showings of them?

    Thank you

    I have a white vase (12′”)with a narrow neck that runs slim and then has a wide bottom. This item is signed on the outside Marc Bellaire, not on the bottom there brown flowers with green leaves hand painted on the vase . Can you guide me where to learn more about this piece. I would be happy to include a photo.

    Thank you,
