  1. It could be word square (magic square) charm, similar to ``SATOR`` formula, but just guessing. Images (as said) are out of focus. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Word_square Try to show us better imag...
  2. ``Age cracks`` cannot develop on figurines within short time, several decades are needed for ``age cracks`` to appear on plates and cups with hot liquid served. Meaning, it must be old. Just guessing...
  3. Hi, Is there any mark, painted or impressed? That might help. Cheers
  4. It`s extremely difficult to execute en cabochon effect.Exact quantity and thickness of vitreous paint is needed to fill the cells and let it gradually sink during firing.Have never seen additional ena...
  5. Are you referring to French rectangular weevil mark ? It was used for imported silver items from treaty countries, used 1893-1984, minimum silver standard of 800/1000 fineness. Take a look here: htt...
  6. Hi, Yes, crossed swards are a bit different from the suggested link. The clue might be the embossed mark if you could decipher the monogram. Let`s keep searching. Cheers
  7. Looks like an early mark of Porzellanfabrik Wilhelm Rittirsch (1950 until 1974), Bavaria. Take a look hire (the second from left). http://www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/germany/bavaria/kueps-02/index...
  8. They are still in business. Benzie registration number is stamped on each piece that weighs over 4 grams. Empty boxes are also found online. I doubt they made micro mosaic jewelry, and gold left unmar...
  9. In Continental Europe they would be clear Baroque revival style c. 1850 or a bit later. Reproduced in 20th century, but one can easily tell the difference between 19th and 20th century, the way how th...
  10. It`s nice and the maker was honest with his mark. Have seen those bracelets with maker`s mark, either initials or pictorial, with ``echo en Mexico`` then ``STERLING TAXCO`` on the clasp. Exactly what ...
  11. Hi, Bohemian Cheers
  12. Felt cannot be a clue, most often attached by owners to protect furniture. Sometimes felt hides marks. Rabbits are well sculptured, natural patina. I would be tempted to remove felt, god knows what`s ...
  13. It`s die stamped,not cast,right? The first examples were documented in early 20th century. Being die stamped means they were not reproduced later, making a steel die would be too expensive for a humor...
  14. There was a discussion on German coin forum regarding this medal (token). Fantasy ``double eagle`` on reverse, and there was no consensus on the fineness. Not made in Egypt (there is a medal with Indi...
  15. Franz Welz confirmed in comments and I suppose CW has knowledgeable stuff. Some of my posts have been moved, too. I wish they had better control on posts where people boast having cheated charity sh...
  16. That explains being framed under glass. If it`s not too difficult to remove the backing I would examine them closely. Cheers
  17. Well, prints are easily distinguished from paintings, but cannot tell based on images here.
  18. George III salt spoon. Assay office mark is missing, making the identification more difficult. It was done on purpose to prevent fraudulent ``duty dodging``, i.e. paying duty on light items (like you...
  19. His original paintings fetch $8000-$20000.
  20. First loved them because I saw there was something appealing and very artistic in them. Then saw the signature. In case you did not know: they are a treasure. Take a look here: http://warrenkimble.c...
  21. Take a look here: http://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=25017&p=60474&hilit=ferner#p60474 http://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9493&p=20510&hilit=ferner#p20510
  22. There is one more image option on CW. Can you show us close-up of the marks, please? Eugen Ferner often marked the year of manufacture. His son Peter was active in the 50`. He was the president of Ger...
  23. Could not find better example to show the transparency. Sellers of jewelry seldom take images from different angles.
  24. I do not understand the site either, but yes, that`s the pottery with the name on the label (town in Belarus). I thought it was a liquor, vodka decanter but you said there was no hole. Decorative then...
  25. Take a look here. (Zoom in the image). Note how transparent opals are. http://www.abrimagery.com/store/product_info.php/polished-white-gilson-fusing-opal-p-2356?osCsid=ce1e868fde0660c8f9312101aa3e834...
  26. Often described as ``trench art`` and made of brass artillery shells. Strictly speaking, trench art items were not literally made in trenches with bullets flying around, but in workshops close to the ...
  27. Belarus pottery founded 1974. http://artem-ablozhei.livejournal.com/150775.html
  28. A benevolent remark: search for the difference between solid opal, doublet and triplet opals. Doublets and triplets are dark in body tone because they have a black artificial backing to create the imp...
  29. In Germany, it would be easily attributed to ``Alt Deutsch`` style (Historismus), late 19th century.
  30. A lion passant mark, I suppose. SM can stand for Samuel Meriton who worked in London in the second half 18th century. Letter C or O in the cartouche should be date letter. Assay office mark for Londo...
  31. Can you show us marks on silver,please? Both parts should be marked, by the way.
  32. Looks like Franz Welz candy jar, lid missing. There are knowledgeable people on CW.Take a look at mine here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/69587-bohemian-spatter-glass-candy-jar--franz
  33. DRGM #1419757 was registered in 1936.
  34. There is patina on brass mounting that takes decades to develop. Some might say even much earlier than 50`, but guessing would be unprofessional. Hopefully, but not very likely, similar box with a lab...
  35. Definitively Murano, copper aventurine.
  36. Past tense of ENTFLIESSEN ( the synonym is ``auslaufen``), meaning ``aus etwas hervortreten`` emerge from something . Da entfloss dem berühmten Gutenberg gleich einem Strome das Wort! So the Word...
  37. Every medal I have seen so far were sold and described as ``Zinn``.
  38. Exactly as translated and dated. Pewter (Zinn) valued at Euro 25-70, depending on condition (very soft pewter alloy).
  39. It looks like cold painted Vienna bronze. Beside ``21`` there seems to be a circular mark, possibly ``Austria``. Cannot read it. Very valuable, anyway. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/46197087424839513...
  40. It`s table servant bell electric ringer.The cord was connected to low voltage DC bell. Look at mine here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/24000-vienna-bronze-polychrome-electric-bell-s Sear...
  41. Marks can be 1.Painted over-glaze 2.Painted under-glaze 3. Impressed Search for impressed marks, they are easily overlooked. Look at different angles.
  42. I`d say it`s hope chest,dowry chest, because the top does not look very versatile to be carried and safely kept closed on-board. As far as I can see. Initials of the owner anyway. If so, a piece of Am...
  43. You have already answered all questions. Art nouveau, silver plated (cleaning over more than 100 years revealed base metal). Bohemia, Austria Hungary. It`s good the glass is intact. If you want to cle...
  44. Rostock Yacht Club has been mentioned.
  45. Take a look here: http://gmic.co.uk/topic/20623-possible-felix-graf-von-luckner-medal/
  46. Hopefully not too late to comment. It`s NOT hand painted, under higher magnification tiny regular dots are clearly seen (transfer printing). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transfer_printing
  47. It`s genuine Carl Thieme around 1900, hand painted. His production was excellent, and often miss-attributed to Vienna with under-glaze blue beehive mark. But he used small ``CT`` in gold, never used b...
  48. Hi, Just take care, Greiner & Holzapfel (1800-1815) figurines have been made in China. Offered with various ``R`` under-glaze blue mark. Sellers from UK are honest enough to describe them as ``Greine...
  49. Is it really an ice-bear (Salovaara) or does it look like hammer with wings mark? Kultateollsuus Oy Turku Suomen Kultaseppa OY Cheers
  50. Thank you for kind words. You cannot imagine how difficult it is to set pearls with beaded setting technique because they are so brittle. My comments are always benevolent, whenever you see pearls se...
