  1. Thanks a lot. So it is an 1820 Dutch Silver Knife with a Shagreen pouch from 1820. Thanks a lot. A fine treasure.
  2. Do you think the GR with an ax is the artist? These hallmark identifications are pretty iffy \
  3. 1820
  4. Looks like an 1829 L
  5. The knife and sheath are indeed a set. The shark skin sheath does have a silver top and bottom and is hallmarked with a hatchet or ax over a GR. The top hallmark on the knife can not be fully read but...
  6. Definitely a shark skin scabbard,
  7. Well thanks. The knife's blade is thin. I have no clue as to what it could be used for. It may even be a steak knife for all I know. Can't really say that the scabbard belongs with this piece. I thoug...
  8. Isn't it an Abu Garcia?
  9. This look very nice. Aren't they called end of day vases? That was usually the time when these artist used up the rest of the colors at the end of day.
  10. It looks definitely to be a mid century danish look. I want it, lol.
  11. You are most likely right. It is a nice piece. I was curious as to what the characters say. I'm sure it's something good like "Longevity" or "Luck" and not something like "Pull My Finger" lol.
  12. I have one like it and would be curious to know also. Mine maybe from Germany. I'll have to dig it out.
  13. Could this have something to do with Pennsylvania?
  14. Hello. This may not be a hippo. Looks like a Finnish Muumi character. Muumi was an animation feature by Tove Jansson.
  15. I thought maybe the same thing. I have several English nurse pins. Just wonder maybe this is somehow related to the nursing? I love finding these strange pieces and trying to find the story behind the...
  16. I'm real curious how much you paid for it.
  17. I have one of these also. Bought it when I lived in Finland. Some fantastic designs from Finland. Also like the Nuutijarvi stuff but Iittala is by far the best.
  18. You are probably right. There have been several pins and stuff from the UK. Could it be some hospital thing? Or maybe it is a sweetheart thing. Still a nice piece.
  19. This is a very odd piece. I'm looking at it again. Is it inlaid? It almost looks like it is some kind of stone with gold art work
  20. Thanks for the advice. I was also curious. I put a powerful magnet to this piece. There was no attraction at all. If there was a base metal at all would that be attracted to magnet? I know brass is n...
  21. There are no marks on this piece. It does seem a bit worn on back so my guess is that it is not real gold. But I look at the filigree and it does look like gold. The detail of this piece is very nice....
  22. Wow thanks much. We know now that it is Japanese. Is the dragon the same in Chinese also? I mean as far as beliefs.
  23. Thanks to all. A beautiful little pin. Such detail all the way down to the scales of the dragon.
  24. I have one similar but it has a green jade I believe. The ring itself is in terrible condition and it does have Chinese hallmarks. I believe it depicts a peacock. Just beautiful but worth not much of ...
  25. I wish I could get so lucky.
  26. I have been to the Riihimaki and Iittala glass factories on a few occasions. I lived in Tampere Finland for nearly 20 yrs. This is a beautiful piece. Se on kaunis. Kiitos paljon.
  27. For some reason it reminds me of Moroccan? \
  28. Mothers day is soon lol
  29. You were more than helpful. Thanks much. I can research it. And I will have it tested for gold.
  30. Well maybe old
  31. OOPS. Not Asian. Not Siam. LOL. Not old.
  32. Well I'm learning a lot about Asian items. I've got a bunch of small piece of jewelry as well as some nice jade pieces. I have one beautiful piece of Jade I'll post. It's beautiful. As far as love fo...
  33. Thanks Kyratango for the info. I have another Asian piece also with unknown character. Could you help me on that one? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/155846-asian-pin?in=user
  34. Hello and thanks for the comment. I'm not sure if I want to clean it. Shouldn't ivory with age have this patina? If I choose to sell it, should it look 100 years old without trouble?
  35. Domo arigatou
  36. ??????
  37. I stand corrected. It seems that the Roland James record should have the number 1007 on it. I guess I ask the same questions, are these early pressings?
  38. Curious as to why the Prohibition was filed off.
  39. Wow just looking at my badge's photos and of course I can tell what was filed off by looking at the back of the badge. It says Prohibition. Still wonder why it was filed off
  40. Most got rid of it and threw it away or better yet, didn't buy it.
  41. It's still ugly. I can't find any like it. Maybe I have the only one in existence. Maybe owned by a person with rose colored glasses.
  42. I don't know how old. It has full crazing. Can the ink color of Made In Japan mark be dated? Just the whole piece is somehow strange.
  43. I picked it up at Goodwill because it was so ugly that I thought it could be something different. Just curious if someone might know what in the world it is. I'll have some fun with it and then get ri...
  44. This hideous piece is like a very strange attempt of a Japanese majolica. I still cant put this think in words. The best word I have for it so far is 'UGLy" lol.
  45. I do believe it is a Riviere Studios Slag Box. I still can not find the mark. There is a lot of green stuff which could be hiding the mark. Don't think I should try to clean it. I don't think it is a ...
  46. Art all Tiffany pieces marked? I can't find one on here.
  47. Could this be a Tiffany Studios Gilt Bronze and Slag Glass Stamp Box? Seems these have Tiffany stamped on them. I cant see anything stamped on mine. There are however some numbers etched on it. Looks ...
  48. The hallmark is added. Not the greatest pic. It looks like an Aztec With feather war hat?
  49. These bottles have a silver hallmark or makers mark. It appears to be an Aztec in my opinion. I can not find this anywhere. I would believe this is Mexican silver but I can not identify this symbol. D...
  50. Ok. I have a very nice lamp I paid for $2 dollars. I may have to keep this one since I have so much invested in it lol. It looks to have never burned a candle. It is a unique piece. Thanks for the inf...
