I love carnival glass.
I know what you mean. I keep meaning to have a sort out, but end up knitting and reading!
Everything is closed here except Food shops now. Found the Lego just before the lock down! We use Bricklink to find Lego sets, then hubby prints off the inventory, then you have to find the bits that ...
I believe Petrus Regout Maastricht china was made in Holland in the 19th century.
As far as I can tell, this mark dates it to 1875-1890. I think it is a coffee pot and is very pretty.
It would be easier if you could turn the picture with the writing the right way round. I have found if you edit pics just a bit the turn out to be the right way up. You should be able to edit your pos...
I love these old cars. I think I've got some stashed away, but all out of boxes and some are pretty battered!
I think they may be a bit later than the 1950's! I remember buying them (and scoffing the iced gems) but I think it's more like the 1970's!
Love your photo. Well placed!
The yellow glass looks like uranium glass and will probably glow under UV light.
Are they pottery, or made of resin? Its the lines on the back that look a bit like resin, but you should be able to tell by touch.
I love them. Very pretty.
I would think this is the tray for a trinket set. I can imagine a couple of candlesticks and trinket dishes to go with it!
I don't actually know the pattern name. I found a similar one online called Hobnail Suite.
The best way to get your photos the right way up is to edit them, just a bit, slight crop etc. I don’t know why but it works!
Hi Jenni, I too wondered if your elephant was Neodymium. You don't need a blacklight to find out. I have a neodymium Duck, and it took be ages to realise this, but it is pink in natural light, but blu...
I think we bought some like these in Malaysia, but you can probably find them in a lot of Asian countries.
I think it's probably German. I think they often imprinted numbers, though I don't know enough about German Pottery to know more.
Adderley is a Stoke on Trent Pottery. 1876-1905! Though I think they are still going in some form. Your pot looks late Victorian maybe?
I think this is from Global Studios Cornwall. I have a couple of bears on here, and thought that was where they were from, then I saw one similar in a charity shop, with the original box, which confir...
I’ve tried looking up the pattern number 9786, and nothing is coming up. I did look up the backstamp too, and this dates from 1925. Is this a mug or a cup? The pattern looks a bit like Imari, but I ca...
Maybe for mustard?
It's ok, I'm always putting the wrong words in, and I guess I'm good at working out what they should be!
Thank you, Daisy, and no it doesn’t glow under black light. I checked!
That's brilliant Tallcakes, I would never have guessed the pattern name from the design.
It's lovely. A good find.
I think the pattern is Edme, which is a very strange name, but I've just bought some Wedgwood so I've been trying to find out what it is, and this pattern came up.
If you google Wedgwood Barlaston Creamware Egg cup, some like this do come up, so I think it is an egg cup.
They look like the houses you get from the Dutch Airline KLM with liqueur in them, except the ones I’ve seen are Blue.
I think you are right about it being Adelaide shape! I had a look through my Compendium Of British Cups, and it looks very similar to Coalport's and similar pottery's Adelaide shapes of 1831-1840. The...
I have a blue version of this, but I still have it as unknown, so it's great it's been identified now. (I don't have the candlesticks though).
I have a pair of Plaques a bit like these. I'm not sure where they are just now! They have the look of Shafer Vater, a German pottery.
This mark is on the Worthpoint.com page of fake china marks!
A really interesting post. Trying to find information about what you collect is hard online, and as you say, most books on the subject are not necessarily accurate, and on the internet, information is...
I've had a look through my books on tea cups, and it's possible these are from 1850 - 1870's. I did think they may be earlier, but if they were, they would only have one saucer, for both tea and coffe...
Looks interesting, and could be old. I'll do a bit of looking up in some of my books later, but just off to babysit Grandson now!
I've marked this as solved, as I saw a pink bear like these in a charity shop, and it had it's box that had Global Studios written all over it.
Well spotted NevB, I'd looked at the mysteries and missed them. So it's a mystery.
Thanks, Tallcakes, Duda and Renedijkstra. Yes, it isn’t in brilliant condition, but it was only £3.50! I did wonder if the colour is peach?
The diamond mark ended in 1883, and the number 5 in the bottom corner probably relates to month, so this probably dates from between 1868-1883.
I think the one you got your sister is better than this one. I did go back and have another look, but two of the finials were broken, and the decoration on the front was really slap dash, so I left it!
Happy New Year Jenni, and best wishes for 2020.
Maybe you could call it a centre piece!
It's very pretty. Maybe continental, but not sure.
Thanks NevB. I had a look and they do look like my mug, but I find the post frustrating, as there is no real info as to how he knows who made it.
The damage that I could see was a chip on one of the bits sticking up from the base, so not too bad. I actually mentioned to my boys that it might be a Xmas present, so you never know!!
This is so pretty, perfect for the holidays.
They could be old! If you can see through the cup it is porcelain, the other could be earthenware. They look to be hand painted too. I can’t work out if they are Chinese or English. Chinese porcelain ...
Thank you Duda, for that information. The vase is 3" tall. I don't know much about Fenton glass, as I live in the Uk, and I picked up the vase on my favourite market stall. The stall holder said he ha...
I was surprised too, Uranium glass in the Uk stopped after the 2nd World War.
