  1. Probably 14, can't imagine such a large, ornate bangle being any less than that. Fantastic piece by the way. Sure it's not marked *anywhere??* Take it to one of those gold buying places and have them...
  2. By the way........ Can anyone tell me the correct pronunciation of Harrach? Hair-ack? Har-ok?
  3. Thanks for posting this valuable knowledge for everyone, I learned a lot!
  4. Well it is, those symbols are actually real, just the meanings behind them were embellished or made more "colorful," you know?
  5. Oh yeah, duh, California... They didn't have swimming pools in Italy in the 60's. What am I thinking. Its probably California studio pottery huh? Thanks ho2cultcha!
  6. I'm a total gold-hound. I learned early on that if you want to make a lot of (semi) easy money, learn how to sniff out gold, especially unmarked gold. Plus my family has a huge background in jewelry, ...
  7. Lol okay sure! I'll post all of it. I got that bangle in the back during a pre-sale, it's a lot thicker and heavier than they usually are. She told me there would be a lot of gold the next day, so...
  8. It's just one of those hollow clamper bangles that has flowers and stuff on it, nothing earth shattering, but it's big and heavy
  9. Don't you love that European gold that's not marked with a K so few thrift store clerks or estate sale companies knows what it is? Another one of my favorites it's the 14KP, they think it means "plate...
  10. I have one of these too, though mine was made by Charles Loloma's girlfriend. It's on my page somewhere. Same scarab and "hidden meaning" underneath sorta
  11. AH!! I can repay you now! I am from Phoenix and I actually happen to have the *exact* same Thinderbird mug (somewhere). The Clay Shop was along the route of the Fred Harvey tours, that's where this st...
  12. How'd you know right off the bat?
  13. Good one Efes, thanks : )
  14. No drawers or compartments, just a blue enamel inside I actually did find one sort of like it on 1stDibs, but it was "unavailable" The other one they were asking $4,850, it was like 2 inches big...
  15. Ahhhh!!! Yes!!! That's it!! I've had tons of this stuff over the years but never knew wha it was! Thank you guys!!
  16. Harrach!..... That's the name that was on the tip of my tongue. Certainly ozzmarty's piece has all the same points in common, amethyst, white enamel, and gilding. I'm sure that's it. Thank you yet aga...
  17. Ah you got it, I missed it going through their catalogues Thanks swfin!
  18. Thanks everyone! When I saw it at the sale I thought "no WAY......" I actually had to (quickly) dig through the entire Google Image page before I found another example, on the cover of a book. One sol...
  19. My middle school teacher kept a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun on her desk
  20. Facebook group "Collecting Japanese Porcelain" - They will be able to tell you everything you need to know
  21. Actually they are pretty common remakes, probably not older than the 70's. They still put that mark on things they produce today. China is the last thing on earth to trust when it comes to antiques, l...
  22. The last day? If there's something really I want at a sale I get there 6 hours early, leave the house at 2-3am. All the really, really good stuff will be gone from the dealers who got there early on t...
  23. What area do you live in Celine?
  24. Whoa, thank you LoveJewelry!!! I never would have figured that out. There doesn't seem to be much on Google about her, how did you recognize the mark?
  25. Unfortunately the vases, in terms of value, are not anything special or rare. Probably from the 70's or 80's. They're a very, very common type of ware. I am also an Asian-lover, its my specialty. I...
  26. Sunnybrook, did you see my Zuni cuff? Its probably one of the best pieces I have, and I got a great deal, probably paid 1/10th what its worth. Its a genuine piece of "old pawn" too, since it has pawn ...
  27. Your piece was made by Yichang Changjiang ceramics Co. The mark says Yichang
  28. Efesgirl, yeah I know that they are, I've had a few of them over the years. I have this REALLY neat unsigned one that I believe is be Pentti Sarpaneva. Its in my private collection because I think its...
  29. Thanks Vetraio, long time no see, I hope you have a merry Christmas
  30. Efesgirl - Yeah I've sold yixing teapots for over a thousand USD. I have a 19th century enameled one right now I bought for like 5 bucks
  31. I called it moriage on the FB page and they got all mad at me saying it wasn't moriage. I think there's some debate on what "moriage" actually is, but I agree with you, I always thought it just referr...
  32. It was confirmed as a 19th century piece
  33. Great find, I've had a few of these pieces before. I also have one in my personal collection that is unsigned, but quite extravagant. I think it is by Pentti Sarpaneva, but I could never find a match...
  34. Artistinside, since you like Japanese ceramics too, I thought I'd post another really cool, unusual piece for you that I found recently. Its a Meiji-era Kutani dove with an odd impressed mark. I've n...
  35. I got this piece from a very wealthy suburb in AZ, there were several bookshelves FULL of reference material and an unusually large amount of rare, old, valuable Japanese and Chinese objects. I bought...
  36. Thank you Art, I guess you're into Asian ceramics as well? I prefer Japanese, but right now Chinese ceramics are more valuable
  37. Its a very nice piece and I really like it, but it was made to look old. There are *no* native American pieces with signatures or marks from the era you mentioned. In fact, it was the Fred Harvey comp...
  38. Thanks Ho2!
  39. Wow you got it Melanie! Can I ask how you figured it out?? Did you recognize it? or some database? Please, I'm really curious as to how you ID'd it
  40. Trust me I've seen far, far worse. I use flour personally to rub against signatures. You could try that. Now If I were an artist, I would want people to be able to read my signature and RECOGNIZE m...
  41. I have been asking that EXACT SAME QUESTION since I started collecting art and pottery years ago, what is the deal??? Why can't ANY ARTIST AT ALL sign their pieces so people can READ THEM?? Ughhh... S...
  42. Roycroftbooks - I couldn't find any Howard Hughes museums at all? There was one article about the Spruce Goose at an aviation museum
  43. In my experience, Christies and Southebys NEVER respond back to you unless you have something worth 5-6 figures
  44. What do you mean by HH museums??
  45. Yes you're right, good eye, he didn't have a dimple, and I noticed that as well. Could be that he asked the artist to add one so he looked manlier, or the artist took artistic license. They aren't pho...
  46. "rucklczglass, 12 hours ago Could be a self-portrait. Us CW women members also enjoy seeing -males- in artistic forms.... ;-)" Lol thanks Ruckl, you're absolutely right, I'm sure there is a female...
  47. His hair is even parted the same side Hughes parted his
  48. Actually, on the back is written "HH Despondent," and I'm seriously thinking this could be Howard Hughes, who was kind of a despondent guy to begin with. I've compared it to some photos of him aro...
  49. Robert H. Kennicott (1892-1983 Los Angeles, CA)
  50. Anyone good at making out signatures?
