  2. Difficult to tell based on pictures.Look here http://www.ebay.com/gds/1780-Maria-Theresa-Silver-Trade-Coin-Buying-Guide-/10000000178258800/g.html
  3. Is there any mark on metal covers? Inspect them carefully with magnifying glass. If it`s silver we might identify the country of origin.
  4. Already good comment by ticktocktime100. If you open the back you will probably see the maker or only a serial number. Take care not to displace the pendulum. If you are lucky it could be gilded bronz...
  5. Thanks a lot OlofZ It`s obviously the same or very similar tavern and the way of painting. Teniers had his own circle and many paintings were reproduced both on tin or canvas. The signature here loo...

  7. Search for impressed marks. Sometimes they are not easy to see, turn the plate at various angles.
  8. Robert Hanke Porcelain Factory, Ledvice, (Ladowitz, Bohemia, Austria at the time) 1882 founded by Robert Hanke. 1945 the factory closed. http://www.bihl.nl/BIHL%20pottery.htm
  9. An oleograph should be easily recognized on close inspection. If really oil on canvas then it`s a beautiful young mid _Victorian lady and exceptionally well painted.
  10. Definitively vintage Bohemian.
  11. Neither of them (no four flint strikers for Serbia and no King`s crown, Russian Eagle has St George, no imperial crown, the shield is not divided). The link I gave shows exactly the same work of incr...
  12. And the same lidded bowl here. Intact set of 400 years old Chinese porcelain simply do not fly around, especially not on eBay; must be a reproduction. It`s nice, though,enjoy it. http://www.ebay.ie...

  14. Hi, It was made in Toledo, Spain. Compare with this http://www.bagthejewels.co.uk/double-headed-eagle-on-cufflinks---toledo-spanish-work-circa-1960s---1970s---sold-1925-p.asp Best wishes
  15. Right, it`s 1905 - 1906. Incompletely struck maker`s mark ``J dot something``. Unless the same or similar tea caddy spoon with the same set of marks is encountered elsewhere, we`ll probably never kno...
  16. Although ``thumbs-up`` gesture dates back to Ancient Rome (the origin is unclear, though) ``fumsup`` must be Cockney Th-fronting NORF LONDON :-)
  17. Early pieces were not hallmarked for silver.I think A.R. was privileged.
  18. Looks like surrealistic sculpture. Beautiful.
  19. Typical art nouveau, meaning close to 1900. Elaborate hanging chains - simple chains were far more common. Reminds me of Austria - Hungary Empire and Germany at the time. Possibly Zsolnay. Try to fi...
  20. ``Unusual silver brooch known locally as the 'starfish' brooch - believed to have been inspired by a starfish seen on one of Iona's beaches.`` http://www.alexander-ritchie.co.uk/disc_brooch2.htm
  21. Six digit Rd No starting with 6 was registered in 1913, but it does not mean the brooch was actually made in 1913, but later, as suggested by vetraio50, most probably during several years in the early...
  22. Date letter ``I`` for Dublin is 1950. The maker is Hopkins & Hopkins.
  23. Looks like Coat of arms of Luxembourg
  24. Hi, Decades ago I bought ORWO film (East Germany at the time) for this type of camera ans was surprised with excellent quality of B and W prints. I think there are still film rolls to be found, but c...
  25. It`s genuine Murano latticino glass made in the fifties, very complicated colored glass canes. I have collected them for years and I can assure you it`s not Chinese. In spite of having cheap labor it ...
  26. Was it 1845 or 1844? ``Publisher Chapman & Hall, Publication date 1844`` ``The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In, a short novel by Charles Dickens, was...

  29. Hi, You have a wonderful collection of beautifully carved cameos. I was looking for marks on silver and gold mountings that might help to identify the country of origin, the maker etc. Showing us cl...
  30. Painted by Kannhaüser (Richard L. Scott et al., Ceramics from the House of Amphora, Sidney, Ohio, Richard L. Scott, 2004). Leave it like this; hairline crack cannot be repaired unless overpainted, w...
  31. The last letter may look look like 20 (if I understood well) but it`s letter ``V``. As vetraio50 said, it`s A.D.V. Possibly ``.....Deutsche Verband or Verein`` (....German Association). Things like t...
  32. Actually, the signature is n. Daffinger, letter ``n`` stands for ``nach``in German, meaning ``after Daffinger`` by an anonymous miniature painter.

  35. I think it was made in 19th century, more probably mid or late 19th century. I do not buy porcelain anymore and cannot tell the exact value. There are 7 pieces in the set; there should be 6 cups and ...
  36. A genuine Sèvres cup and saucer mid 18th century sells at 6,500 GBP. Early 8-piece 19th century Empire Sevres Dejeuner is estimated at $100,000- 150,000. Is the seller on eBay going to buy a new ho...
  37. Unfortunately, this is not authentic Sevres. Letter ``A`` would mean 1753. ``Sevres style`` porcelain was made by many factories in Germany, Austria and France throughout 19th. century. But it`s nice ...
  38. Extremely well made. Can you take close up pictures of the marks? It would be interesting to identify the maker. There is one more photo option.Thank you.

  44. Excellent! I am glad it`s amber.
  45. The maker is R Hovenden & Sons Ltd. They had a shop in City Road, Finsbury, London. White stuff is most likely ``Meerschaum`` and detachable part is difficult to tell. In old Russian cigar holders it...

  47. Thank you Hunter. Tried with your terms (keywords) and found several figurines spikes with holes in the top. Mine do not have holes, probably depending only on water collected into the hollow cylinder...
  48. Btw. stones are never set in rose or yellow gold because they lose their natural color. Therefore, the setting, prongs, claws etc are always made of white gold if you are dealing with serious jewelers.
  49. It`s Yerevan assay office (now in Armenia). The mark was used since 1958 and the stone is Demantoid Garnett from the Urals. http://www.gemstone.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=108:sa...
