  5. The label seen here is a great find because it demystifies common myth that almost every Bohemian iridescent glass must be Loetz. Even with documented décor it`s not. There were countless glass manufa...
  6. Images with the marks are too small.If the second mark on the left has one crown then it`s Finland. For Finnish marks take a look here and compare. http://www.925-1000.com/Ffinland_Date_Code.html Bu...

  14. Although Italy had well established hallmarking and registration system the makers often avoided it. Why is the needle showing different color, as well as parts of the brooch at the top ? Or just ligh...
  15. Medals can be posted here.They can be easily identified and valued. Coins are difficult to grade online. There are collectors clubs. In regard of conservation, do not try to clean both silver and br...
  16. Dutch hallmark that was struck in objects of 14K gold and is used between 1906 and 1953 (the leaf with 3 secondary veins). Prongs are intact. It would take 5 minutes to set the missing stone.
