  9. man, you never disappoint, Stillwater. I wish I could get my hands on some of the reference books you discussed in a previous post.
  10. anyone think the first piece is a moonstone? it is marked made in Israel 925. And I wonder if the second stone is really a stone. But the first piece especially looks like really nice work.

  31. totally....1980's I had these. The warrior has the arms that flip up. Love them!!!
  32. PS. I live 30 minutes from Bucks County, in Jersey, which is why I would like to know the outcome. Best of luck!
  33. Honestly....I would certainly have it looked at by someone who knows Bucks Co. Pottery. If you live in the area maybe try the museum this piece is in. If you have an authentic piece it is certainly ...
  34. are there any slightly loose joints you can take a picture of? I mean, from my limited experience with Chinese chairs, they look right structurally, but very over the top. Not something I have seen ...

  40. Big tex, I have a large collection of coin silver spoons. I believe these to be 700, 800, or coin. I do not know, however, that these are 1700's unless otherwise dated on the back. Most spoons from...
  41. bigtex, nice....can you repost the back of the spoons so I can look up markings? I can't see them too well.
  42. Very true bootson! Moonstone, thanks for the it is junk?
  43. thank you agram.m It is very strange to find the marks like this. Does anyone specialize in Georg Jensen? Thanks!
  44. bigtex....what is the size? I don't think it is a ladle, instead a soup bowl or an ice cream dish? To hold and eat at the same time at a party. I would not get rid of it, but I do have a soft spot ...
  45. Hey doc. Sorry for the one month delay, now I finally saw these! Yeah these are made the same was the "weighted" candle sticks are. It is a thin tin foil like piece of sterling wrapped around, in thi...
