  4. I think it`s linked to Genoa, West Virginia
  5. Fleur de Lis symbols are obviously linked to French heritage in Quebec, surmounted by ‚‚Queen`s crown`` (Victoria).
  6. Roden Brothers, Toronto, Canada http://justinteeantiques.com/news-info/canadian-silversmiths-of-the-20th-century/
  7. This is positive image of the urn. So, it cannot be directly used to make plaster ornaments but rather to make a negative as intermediate step. http://www.christinedemerchant.com/mould-making.html W...
  8. Hello again, In regard of material, there is bone similar to ivory. Take a look here: https://www.fws.gov/lab/ivory_natural.php Pay attention to Schreger lines described in the link and depicted el...
  9. They are rare compared with portraits painted on ivory, especially yours being complicated. It was probably set into frame or boxed. Two links to shed more light: http://www.onlinegalleries.com/ar...
  10. Very distinctive Dutch scene.
  11. Perfectly reliable test ! Hot pin would melt any plastic like butter. I think it`s UK Victorian miniature and nothing to do with American heritage. There are carved ivory Victorian portraits but thi...

  16. Dolphins like this are typical for Minoan art (Crete, Greece).
  17. This is not a difficult task for every serious art laboratory to analyze canvas and oil pigment composition. Worth trying. I have very old portraits of Napoleon and Frederick the Great but far from wi...
  18. I would organize items dividing silver from silver plating. Generally speaking: British silver has distinctive set of marks. American silver is marked ‚‚sterling‚‚ The rest is electroplated (most ...

  21. Repair of the clasp is not easy at all because of diamonds with flat back usually set over silver foil (to avoid yellow color). If hard soldered at very high temperature diamonds are likely to fall ou...
  22. Appears to be French maker`s mark in lozenge.
  23. Description of marks (‚‚bug‚‚) does not help much. Good close up of the mark is needed. 800 or 900 is fineness number (most probably). So, it is not sterling (.925). Common misconception in identif...
  24. Search for ‚‚Japanese Damascene cigarette box‚‚ and enjoy. Not overpaid at all. Do not trust people here who boast having robbed charity shops. Even if they did it`s indecent to gloat. Forty quid ...
  25. Are there any marks on the back ? Mounted - how ? Thank you
  26. The girls look far better than Erwin Rommel pillbox. Fortunately, the seller is honest, otherwise it would be $$$ for Nazi freaks. Laser printing opened another opportunity for fakers; e.g. WW I impe...
