    No substitute for experience -- get out to some antique malls and shows and just look at everything. Go to your public library and check out all the antiques and collectibles price guides. Spend hours and hours looking at completed listings on ebay.

    If you are listing things here with questions -- tell us what you know - what is the item marked, what's it made out of, size, etc.

    Your dishes look like MODERN ORCHID by PADEN CITY POTTERY -- -- search ebay for values.

    You can see lots of cobalt blue glass swans on ebay --

    I just saw your swan last week when researching a blown glass "end of day" or spatter type bowl, I can't remember who made it right frustrating!! I was searching blown glass, murano, venetian etc. A lot of steuban (not sure if that's the right spelling) came up in my search and I got onto a sight that had several designers for them it showed a lot of examples for each designer maybe that is where i saw it? If I remember I will write it down this time! I always find something I had been looking for when I'm looking for something else!
