  1. Appears to be banded agate stone, which generally came out of Scotland. Possibly a Scottish coat of arms, and part of a chatelaine set.
  2. Thank you so much @GeodeJem for your insight on this box. I definitely would have never figured this out on my own and your information is very much appreciated!
  3. Hi Warren The estimate I provided is based on actual past auction sale records. What you are coming across are asking prices, and any person can ask any price they please on any item they own. The k...
  4. These are referred to as Georgian era rat-tail spoons. They are later re-makes though.
  5. This is original and it was made as a cookie or biscuit tin in the 1930's

  9. Definitely not mocha ware nor stoneware. Fairly modern 20th century pitcher-shaped tin glazed ceramic with underglaze hand painted blue cobalt decoration

  11. Any marks on the backside or underside?
  12. The doll is painted composition, could be rubber underneath since it is flaking this way. Def not bisque which is unfired porcelain
  13. This is a folding gout rocker. https://thefurniturerecord.wordpress.com/2014/01/07/behold-the-lowly-gout-rocker/
  14. If you can capture very clear, in-focus close-up images of the hallmarks, it will narrow down country of origin and dates. My opinion is that the center plaque image is a replacement and is not as ol...
  15. The appear to be molded and not cut glass. A view of them without the lid and the undersides will tell the story
  16. Vintage mid 20th century French Louis Revival style
  17. It is called silver overlay. Cambridge Glass did a swan pattern. http://www.cambridgeglass.org/articles/0508/07crystalball409a.php
  18. This was made by Tashiro Shoten Ltd, they were established before WWII in Yokohama, Japan.
  19. These are 2nd quarter 20th century Japanese porcelain export wares with a pseudo-Meissen mark.
  20. This would sell for $10 - $25 on today's market. Here is a link for you to a match that sold for $12.99: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1983-universal-statuary-corp-236-white-feline
  21. The maker is William Rogers Limited from New York & Connecticut. The W.R. keystone mark was used on medium grade hollow ware and half plate flatware. Mark was used approximately 1894 to 1929 when sol...
  22. The Japanese moriage teacup?
  23. The mark “WP La Belle China” is for the Wheeling Pottery Company of West Virginia, which was in business from 1879 to 1923.
  24. This is Japanese Meiji period, late 19th century, circa 1880's made-for-export Moriage (applied raised enamel) ware with handpainted decoration on porcelain.

  26. This dates to the 1930's.
  27. The costumes on these dolls are traditional Korean outfits, not Japanese.
  28. These are called boiserie panels, at the oldest late 1700's.
  29. This dates to circa 1930's. American.
  30. Art Nouveau era, Harrach style, Bohemian glass circa 1895 - 1905. The gold is real however there is no longer a precious metal melt down value as the cost to extract would exceed the value of the amo...
  31. If the sticker says Murano, then it is genuine Italian Venetian Murano art glass. The controlled bubbled are called bullicante. Likely dates from the 1960's. Yes, these are collectible
  32. Appears to be a circa 1920's tobacco jar
  33. Molded polyresin. Buddha holds a bag of money and a bowl with fruit. Often found in Chinatown districts such as in NYC and San Fran.
  34. This is a sterling hallmark from Poland that was first used in 1986, thus it is likely not Gladys and Charles Mumford unless they were still making items after 1986. The stone is banded agate.
  35. These are American Empire style
  36. This is molded polyresin
  37. Thank you for checking this out. I did not get to see the green Harrach pair in person and I have not handled enough Harrach to have proper benchmarks. I do see that in the photo of the green vases ...
  38. Hi There, Thanks for weighing in here. I came across this auction lot with green glass vase pair with similar lily flowers attributed to Harrach that was deaccessioned from a glass museum. http:/...
  39. Hi there~ I just posted a blue cobalt glass vase too, a few minutes after you. Wondering if mine is Harrach or Joesphinenhutte?
  40. Addendum - Rhead was born in 1880 - so definitely not by him.
