Hello fellow collectors. I am a third generation coin collector and hope to be of service to you in the future. However right now I am seeking advice. When my Mom passed away she left me many oriental artifacts as well as a lot of crystal. I loved my Mom dearly but it is time for these to be sold. I am hoping someone can recommend some books or websites that would help me identify and give me some idea what these beautiful items are worth? I know most of them are worth quite a bit of money as I can remember my Dad grumbling about how much they cost him. But anything to keep "Your Mother Happy". He was quite guy when it came to family. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time and God Bless. Cary

    On that black table you have quite a few pieces of cloisonne. There are plenty of collectors out there for that stuff, I have a few pieces myself. Do some searches on eBay for cloisonne and that will give you an idea of what they are selling for there. Google "cloisonne" to find some books on it. Good luck!

    Thanks very much For your time. Google has been a help. The problem researching on eBay is there is so much modern junk! There are hundreds of
    sites you can buy cloisonne,cinnabar and porcelian items for twenty of thirty dollars. I do appreciate your time and thanks again. Cary

    Savoychina1, Thank you so much for your help! It truly is greatly appreciated! this is just what I has looking for. I would have been a antique by the time I found site, there are millions of them. Know any that deal in Imari? Mom left me a bunch of that also. Go figure, she was a good Swed. I would also like to thank you for My Dumb, well you know what, used them to figure out what pattern of silver she had. I forgot they did crystal also. Not to worry. I'm not selling yet, just trying to figure ouy what all this beautiful things are and about what thier worth. Thanks again and God Bless. Cary
