  1. Ah that's where I saw it, on the Roadshow. Knew I had seen it somewhere. Small miracle they stayed together all these years
  2. Thank you, I agree, sometimes I think it does look better than floating on a gradated background
  3. I've been saying the same thing too! If you want to invest in fine Japanese porcelain, now is the time to do it. I routinely see technically beautiful, highly artistic Satsuma go for around a hundred ...
  4. With regards to the ~ Somewhat Nice. ~ Just Awesome.. ~ A keeper... ~ Highly Collectible.... Chinese exported a lot of jewelry to the rest of the world and there is a lot floating around....
  5. Oooo how cool is that
  6. Don't you hate when something is signed like this? I never understood why they don't just write their name so everyone will know... I can't make out what they were trying to convey with this mark. Can...
  7. Great piece. Things made in Italy during this era were of higher artistic quality. There were a lot of very famous designers working there
  8. ooo spectacular. id love to find that
  9. What area do you live in Sean?
  10. It translates as "wise warrior" but I don't know what that would mean for a pottery mark. Hope you find this interesting
  11. Whoops, links don't recognize the character. First is: Second is:
  12. The top one is: It means bright, intelligent, wise The second one is: Which means arms or armaments in Chinese, but also means Ai...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. Oh my gosh... That's like, Illuminati memorabilia! Extremely cool though
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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...
  21. Minasan arigatou gozaimashita!
  22. Bennett, here's that other piece I was asking you about
  23. 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: ...
  24. 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...
  25. 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 ...
  26. 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...
  27. 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...
  28. 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
  29. Lol, not Qing dynasty... Republic period
  30. Pennsylvania redware
  31. Darn it.... I know what this stuff is called, I just can't remember the name. Sorry
  32. They're based on old Chinese decor actually. Any marks?
  33. That's actually pretty neat!
  34. From the thumbnail I knew it was too good to be true... Lol...
  35. Suggestions? Take it apart to see if there are any marks on the ceramic body. Base looks darker than teak in the photo.
  36. Thanks V!
  37. 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...
  38. Wow, you always post the neatest stuff. That's a really interesting piece.
  39. Chinese export piece, 1920's-40's. Looks like it may be a type of glass instead of jadeite in the first photo
  40. Yeah its Satsuma.
  41. I would have the glass buffed, its got a bit of value
  42. 1960's-70's. Pretty sure its not pinchbeck....
  43. You can be certain that 1804 is a pattern/reference number, not the year it was made. Its called a "ewer," pronouned YOU-er.
  44. This is considered folk art instead of tramp art. Can't imagine "tramps" building it. Is it handpainted?
  45. Looks like you have all the information already, its a Chinese export letter opener
  46. 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...
  47. 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
  48. 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...
  49. Its Mexican. You see these a lot in Mexican restaurants as decoration on the walls. Sorry...
  50. Killer piece. Thanks for that little tidbit of info about smooth vs. striated cuts, I'll file that in the memory bank
