  1. Who got the best deal, the buyer or the seller ?
  2. The latest theory is that it's 18th century Dutch Delft ! But I suppose inspired by the Chinese ?
  3. Thanks apostata.
  4. Many thanks apostata. Now I'm wiser than before.
  5. From pic. 1 it looks like you're a victim of a pillow-takeover ?!
  6. Yes, late 19th century or even a bit younger. That the handles are made of wood makes it a provincial piece. In the cities they had put brass handles on it.
  7. Thanks IronLace for your intelligent interpretation. I have another one, given the year 1940: The Nazi attack on Europe.
  8. Paintings of this type are mass-produced in The Far East and given fictive signatures.
  9. So it's Charles V. I stand corrected. But I like it anyway. Hope you do too.
  10. Horror vacui ...
  11. Looks like a late 19th century reproduction of a Louis XVI frame.
  12. Kinky ...
  13. 1920's or 1930's would be my guess
  14. The style points to late 19th century.
  15. The style points to around 1800, but it can also be a much newer copy.
  16. It looks like smoke was supposed to come out of a tube between the lips. Maybe part of an early 20th century illusionist, spiritist, ventriloquist doll ?
  17. The late 19th century French impressionists didn't work in vain ...
  18. Thanks for the comment. I'l have it in mind !
  19. Decoration, yes. Art, no. Probably made in a 'decorative paintings factory'. Possibly in The Far East, with a fictive signature.
  20. Thanks ho2cultcha. I've added photos of the bases. Incense burning in the temple has left its mark on the unglazed parts of the porcelain.
  21. In late 19th century the opening of the suez canal and of the starting of the orient express made the orient popular in Europe. This oriental looking lady would have been a popular subject for a paint...
  22. I thought a 'screwdriver' was something to pour down your throat on a merry evening !
  23. Who does the dusting, if any ?
  24. The Baroque painting looks interesting. The rest must rely on sentimental value.
  25. Those sleeves should be able to keep most men away and the front lady's jaw should scare the few remaining men away.
  26. Did a dinosaur leave its mark ?
  27. I agree with ho2cultcha. These kind of paintings are mass-produced and sold to naive tourists.
  28. Dust is not a must ...
  29. When you've visited countless museums and auction views you know the difference.
  30. Decoration, yes. Art, no.
  31. Stupid waste of valuable ressources. It must have been possible to get something useful out of them.
  32. "Earth to earth, dust to dust " ...
  33. Who does the dusting, if any ?
  34. Who does the dusting, if any ?
  35. Glass ball ! Never saw that before !
  36. In most cases the marks are emperor marks - which unfortunately rarely can be trusted - and you can find lists of them in numerous books as well as on the Internet. The vase looks like recent exportw...
  37. So the lantern has enlightend us, so to say. Thanks again !
  38. Thanks again apostata. Strange birdcage connected to a leash as well as to a stick !
  39. Thanks again apostata. Is the birdcage now a peacock ? You're right it's getting complicated.
  40. If not early Yongzheng, then what is it ?
  41. Thanks all ! Apostata, if you know something I didn't know, then please tell me !
  42. About Re-In-Vintages theory: If true, why don't I find glass, metal, plastic etc. ?
  43. AnythingObscure, ever heard of Dynamite ? ...
  44. Thanks Watchsearcher. No signs of mortar on my stone. People have been living in this part of the country for thousands of years. Before anyone knew anything about mortar.
  45. Decorative, but not art. Probably made in a 'decorative painting factory', with a fictive signature. There are many factories like that all over the World.
  46. I believe I see a coffin nail or two ...
  47. If you dig deeper, you might even find the skeletons of earlier residents ! Who knows ? Before you know it, you'll hear them howling at full moon !
  48. Looks like a boss I once had ...
  49. Hera, goddess of marriage.
  50. There's something interesing about the florets in sunflowers. They appear to form two systems of spirals and reveal a pattern of successive Fibonacci numbers. Why ? We'll never know ! One of natures m...
