  1. Thanks Antique. Yes I got a bunch of interesting things from a jewelers estate in Florida. There are more things I need to get identified because I just can't do it myself. And thanks for the Chilea...
  2. I saw one of these yesterday at auction with tag but I can't remember the maker
  3. Well I will for sure. I kept coming back to this piece. I thought it was somehow special. Didn't really think it was South American. I was thinking Northern Africa. Where could someone get something l...
  4. It explains a lot. I got this piece from a jewelers estate. There are several South and Central American items there. It seems obvious that the person was in this area buy the other items. I have Guat...
  5. Wow thank you so much. It does look similar. I guess I need to test this for silver now. It weights 235 grams. Hard to believe someone lady could wear something like that but then again I don't see ho...
  6. It is not magnetic at all.
  7. I have my doubts too that it is silver. I have a tester but I can't seem to be able to really read the results. Maybe I am doing it wrong. I did not test this piece. It is well made and a wonderful ...
  8. Well I thought it could be something to do with a belly dancer. I also thought it could be something to do with a cape? I dont know
  9. Nah I'm all for a good time. Thanks a lot for all the info. I still don't know if I have a good investment or not, lol. I'd love to know when it was made.
  10. I have another one of a man carrying a woman on back. Same signatures. I am hoping these are not fake. I believe they are ivory or another kind of bone. You can see the grain. I was also hoping these ...
  11. I've looked at the article. Are the holes in the right place? I don't see any circles around the holes. It is signed? I still dont know if it is Japanese or Chinese. I'm more confused now lol.
  12. Hello. I have the piece in hand. I haven't look at the youtube yet. It is not hollow and the holes are connected.
  13. I have a lighter just like this. I'm fairly sure it is a Dunhill. I have a gold and silver one.
  14. This is a promo record. Not for sale DJ copy. I have seen one when I lived in Europe. Nice find. Promos are the first press of any record.
  15. I believe this was made between 1910 and 1923.
  16. Do you think it is Medusa? Or someone else? I keep looking at it and keep changing my mind, lol.
  17. I assume it is Medusa.
  18. Thanks a lot. So it is an 1820 Dutch Silver Knife with a Shagreen pouch from 1820. Thanks a lot. A fine treasure.
  19. Do you think the GR with an ax is the artist? These hallmark identifications are pretty iffy \
  20. 1820
  21. Looks like an 1829 L
  22. 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...
  23. Definitely a shark skin scabbard,
  24. 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...
  25. Isn't it an Abu Garcia?
  26. 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.
  27. It looks definitely to be a mid century danish look. I want it, lol.
  28. 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.
  29. I have one like it and would be curious to know also. Mine maybe from Germany. I'll have to dig it out.
  30. Could this have something to do with Pennsylvania?
  31. Hello. This may not be a hippo. Looks like a Finnish Muumi character. Muumi was an animation feature by Tove Jansson.
  32. 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...
  33. I'm real curious how much you paid for it.
  34. 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.
  35. 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.
  36. 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
  37. 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...
  38. 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....
  39. Wow thanks much. We know now that it is Japanese. Is the dragon the same in Chinese also? I mean as far as beliefs.
  40. Thanks to all. A beautiful little pin. Such detail all the way down to the scales of the dragon.
  41. 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 ...
  42. I wish I could get so lucky.
  43. 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.
  44. For some reason it reminds me of Moroccan? \
  45. Mothers day is soon lol
  46. You were more than helpful. Thanks much. I can research it. And I will have it tested for gold.
  47. Well maybe old
  48. OOPS. Not Asian. Not Siam. LOL. Not old.
  49. 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...
  50. 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
