  1. Lol I can see how you got that though. If you have an interest in Japanese, here's a fantastic way to learn kana. I struggled with it for a few months and when I used mnemonics, I had them both memori...
  2. You're looking at it sideways there. Its written in hiragana and consists of "sa" which is ?, "tsu" which is ?, and "ma" which is ?. Satsuma. But I see how you got that, the ? does look like ? and the...
  3. Ahhhhh I've always wanted to find one of these!!! I love stuff like this Have you ever seen the spring-loaded ones? Its like a small brass box with three razors, you push a button and they swipe th...
  4. Oh my gosh... That's like, Illuminati memorabilia! Extremely cool though
  5. Its turned sideways by the way. Take the third photo and rotate it to the right 90 degrees. The mark on my vase took better, you can see it easier there if you want
  6. Did you ever find out what this mark is? I have a piece with the same one. I'll let you know if I come across it. Its Japanese but that's all I know http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/120633-j...
  7. Lol, I couldn't tell you. Its got a rim on the bottom though, so its not just a flate plate shape. Kind of hard to grip the little knob though
  8. Nooo, its not by native Americans. Its an old American ware. Now that you know what its called, go do some Googling and see if you can date it yourself. Researching is the fun part! You learn a lot to...
  9. Minasan arigatou gozaimashita!
  10. Bennett, here's that other piece I was asking you about http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/120447-5-foot-wide-mid-century-sunburst-mirror
  11. Japanese and Chinese ceramics are one of my favorite, so I've done a lot of reading and Googling on the subjects. Its definitely Satsuma. Here's the page: http://gotheborg.com/marks/satsuma.shtml ...
  12. All I can say is "trust me." The fine crazing, the decor, the mark. There's no question that its Satsuma. I'm certain you can find the mark on Gotheborg if you spend enough time looking under the "Sat...
  13. Just noticed in the third photo, the facets are smooth, which confirms my hunch that they were glass. Real gemstones from the earth have sharp facets, if they're ever smoothed over like that, they're ...
  14. Couldn't tell you what CH was, might be someone trying to copy him? as a lot of people did copy Horner's thistle stuff. I don't think its even English though, since its marked with sterling and instea...
  15. The rose cut was used from the 16th century until the early Victorian era, about the 1840's-60's, which it definitely isn't from. I can't really see much detail from your photos, but it looks like 20t...
  16. IDK, that's just what I've always known it as. I think the majority of that stuff came from Pennsylvania? I don't know much about it
  17. Lol, not Qing dynasty... Republic period
  18. Pennsylvania redware
  19. Darn it.... I know what this stuff is called, I just can't remember the name. Sorry
  20. They're based on old Chinese decor actually. Any marks?
  21. That's actually pretty neat!
  22. From the thumbnail I knew it was too good to be true... Lol...
  23. Suggestions? Take it apart to see if there are any marks on the ceramic body. Base looks darker than teak in the photo.
  24. Thanks V!
  25. I'm afraid it's not a Charles Horner piece... The CH would be in a cartouche, and instead of a "sterling" mark it would be a lion passant, the way all English silver is marked. Sorry...
  26. Wow, you always post the neatest stuff. That's a really interesting piece.
  27. Chinese export piece, 1920's-40's. Looks like it may be a type of glass instead of jadeite in the first photo
  28. Yeah its Satsuma.
  29. I would have the glass buffed, its got a bit of value
  30. 1960's-70's. Pretty sure its not pinchbeck....
  31. You can be certain that 1804 is a pattern/reference number, not the year it was made. Its called a "ewer," pronouned YOU-er.
  32. This is considered folk art instead of tramp art. Can't imagine "tramps" building it. Is it handpainted?
  33. Looks like you have all the information already, its a Chinese export letter opener
  34. Unfortunately TubeAmp is right, its a decorative souvenir piece that can be found by the millions in Mexican tourist shops. This one probably took inspiration from that gaudy candy-colored Jemez nativ...
  35. Hmm I always wanted to know how they got those kinds of photos on 1stDibs. It makes the item look more valuable for some reason lol
  36. Your photos are too small to tell for sure, but it looks like Japanese copying old Chinese. Probably from the 1960's or so, I see a lot of them. Does it say Made In Japan or JAPAN on the bottom? I can...
  37. Its Mexican. You see these a lot in Mexican restaurants as decoration on the walls. Sorry...
  38. Killer piece. Thanks for that little tidbit of info about smooth vs. striated cuts, I'll file that in the memory bank
  39. Very nice, how do you get photos like that first one, with a perfect whited out background?
  40. I found another one, they said its signed by Kinkozan http://www.antiquetrader.com/antiques/ceramics/meiji-satsuma-earthenware-reflects-japanese-artistry-history-and-culture
  41. Believe it or not I believe I did have this tacked on the ceiling above my bed for a short period....
  42. Well there has to be a "well" somewhere though right?
  43. Yes I see the well, I'm not sure if you can see in the photos but the fish's tail is the well part, it goes in deeper than it looks in the photo
  44. It actually does have a cover if you'll look closely, the first photo is the outside cover, the second is the inkstone. The last photo is not a base, but the second half of the two part wooden case. I...
  45. Lol, thanks Shrine
  46. Well its the same two words, people in the West use Famille Rose and Rose Famille interchangeably
  47. I paid 145 for it
  48. Hmm, thank you for telling me all this. Chinese was just a guess
  49. Shrine - I know its not a period piece, they rarely are. Its got gorgeous decoration on the outside though, very brilliant colors. I know about Chinese marks rarely being what they say they are. D...
  50. I got so many I had ot take two trips to the trunk of my car
