  1. Most of us being enthusiasts do it for research. Btw. people easily attribute ``things they bought cheaply`` to wishful thinking periods, designers, makers etc. Let them stay happy, I seldom engage.
  2. vetraio50 is right, it`s 1964
  3. Hi, Made in Birmingham,UK, by Roberts & Dore, active since 1916. Date letter ``q`` for 1965. Cheers
  4. Dutch forum http://www.horlogeforum.nl/t/ancre-ibeza-zakhorloge/69991
  5. Hi, Found Ibeza ancre on Dutch forum. Cannot understand a single word but there are images of 14 K Ibeza. It does exist. Cheers
  6. Makes no sense: UNUSUAL MAJOLICA VASE Italian - 17th to 18th century ROYAL VIENNA CENTERPIECE - See more at: http://www.mussallem.com/porcelain.html#sthash.4ou0lcTK.dpuf
  7. The most prominent feature of fakes executed in sand molded casting (when inspected under e.g. 10X jewelers loupe) is rough surface finish. Genuine coins are struck.
  8. Are there any marks, either painted or impressed ?
  9. The maker is VEB Ofenkacheln und Keramik Velten There were 43 tile factories in Velten, Germany in 19th century, only one now (A.Schmidt, Lehmann & Co. GmbH). They are not rare and rather inexpensiv...
  10. Riessner, Stellmacher and Kessel, Amphora Pottery Turn-Teplitz, Bohenmia,now Trnovany in the Czech Republic. Amphora Porcelain Works ran from 1892-1945. Prior to WW1 Bohemia was part of the Austro-H...
  11. Hi, I think the mark is `Amphora`` and ``Made in Czechoslovakia`` around it. Try to read it and tell us,please. Very famous pottery manufacture in TURN-TEPLITZ. Cheers
  12. Very qualified appraisal is needed. It could be a treasure (genuine cloisonne of that period is very rare) or much later or modern Chinese reproduction with starting bid at US $0.01. Patina is very ea...
  13. “Silver Soldered” is a method of joining separate parts of sterling and silver plated pieces. It`s hard solder with melting point close to 800 degrees centigrade. Soft solder (tin based) has low melt...
  14. I cannot understand the confusion (with due respect to the antique dealer). Opaline is a type of glass (clouded, milky, opaque), it comes in various colors. Decoration is completely different issue; g...
  15. By definition it`s opaline glass (opaque). Wheel cutting is a technique of creating decor, done by hand on cutting wheel, unlike glass pressed in the mold. Unfortunately, cannot help with appraisal.
  16. It looks like wheel cut glass, not pressed glass. Really nice.
  17. Too many responses to follow. In short, under closer examination and magnification you can easily distinguish wheel cut glass (sharp edges) from pressed glass. If wheel cut, it`s valuable, most probab...
  18. Reminiscent of striped design by M. Powolny and tango glass. Very popular decor widely reproduced, some with glass bands, some painted. https://www.google.rs/search?q=m+powolny+black+stripes+design&e...
  19. Difficult to tell based on pictures.Look here http://www.ebay.com/gds/1780-Maria-Theresa-Silver-Trade-Coin-Buying-Guide-/10000000178258800/g.html
  20. Is there any mark on metal covers? Inspect them carefully with magnifying glass. If it`s silver we might identify the country of origin.
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. Export Approval red seal, partially damaged, is the clue. Used since 1949. ``In practical use when applying these exports permits to pieces, and the answer you usually gets when asking around in Chin...
  24. Search for impressed marks. Sometimes they are not easy to see, turn the plate at various angles.
  25. 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
  26. 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.
  27. Definitively vintage Bohemian.
  28. 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...
  29. 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...
  30. Hi, The bowl of the same period - reproduction http://www.chinese-antique-porcelain.com/a-chinese-bowl1.html
  31. 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
  32. 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...
  33. Although ``thumbs-up`` gesture dates back to Ancient Rome (the origin is unclear, though) ``fumsup`` must be Cockney Th-fronting NORF LONDON :-)
  34. Early pieces were not hallmarked for silver.I think A.R. was privileged.
  35. Looks like surrealistic sculpture. Beautiful.
  36. 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...
  37. ``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
  38. 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...
  39. Date letter ``I`` for Dublin is 1950. The maker is Hopkins & Hopkins.
  40. Looks like Coat of arms of Luxembourg
  41. 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...
  42. 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 ...
  43. 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...
  44. Volkstedt porcelain manufactury sited in Rudolstadt, Thuringia, Germany, was the earliest porcelain manufactory in Thuringia. It is still in business as Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellanmanufaktur, the “...
  45. Hi, More likely date letter ``L`` (continuous horizontal bottom line) but not much difference. Everything fits in.
  46. 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...
  47. 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...
  48. 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...
  49. Actually, the signature is n. Daffinger, letter ``n`` stands for ``nach``in German, meaning ``after Daffinger`` by an anonymous miniature painter.
  50. German ``Frakturschrift`` ``Gebrochene Schrift`` or ``Gotische Schrift``handwriting (script). SILBER JUBILEUM in German ``Silver Jubilee`` It was widely used. We had to learn how to write it in Germ...
