It can be read as "beautiful decoration"
Oops, looks like CW doesn't support kanji, its showing as question marks. Try this https://jisho.org/search/%E6%96%87%E7%BE%8E
Hello Agram, I hope you are doing well, this is the mark on your beautiful brooch: ?? - Wenmei It is very hard to find corresponding info in English about old Asian gold and silver marks unless the...
You used to be able to catalogue-order Nazi reproduction stuff in the 60's and 70's. In particular I've seen these "German Luftwaffe" paratrooper folding knives at antique malls that are a little old ...
Yes it is! Someone on FB just ID'd it Thank you!
Wow! Thank you, that's extremely interesting. I did some research and 1881 coincides exactly with the missionary activities. I was wondering, what do you think its purpose was? It doesn't hold any scr...
Did the French ever make stuff like this?
7" by 2.5" - The walls are really thick, about and inch
I actually found that name too when I was Gooogling, that urchin-like pair of white vases
Did you read the comments? Karaja tribe from Brazil
Sklo or Welzbub, any idea on age? Like I mentioned in the description, very few items in the house were under 100 years old, and everything was good quality. Bohemian maybe? 1920-30?
That's a good enough lead for me to go on, I'll start the Googling process Thanks a lot Sklo!
Thanks, yeah I found it on Google Images a few seconds after he suggested P&R
Peters and Reed
Thanks, I'll check Peters and Reed. Grueby would be nice ; P
Nope, no marks at all, I had to look at it a good while to determine if was REALLY gold. I've never seen such a thing and it really, really looked like costume jewelry
They've been making variations of this kind of stuff in Mexico since the 20's. You'll find tons of things that are similar....
It's open through the stem, down to the ball
Probably 14, can't imagine such a large, ornate bangle being any less than that. Fantastic piece by the way. Sure it's not marked *anywhere??* Take it to one of those gold buying places and have them...
By the way........ Can anyone tell me the correct pronunciation of Harrach? Hair-ack? Har-ok?
Thanks for posting this valuable knowledge for everyone, I learned a lot!
Well it is, those symbols are actually real, just the meanings behind them were embellished or made more "colorful," you know?
Oh yeah, duh, California... They didn't have swimming pools in Italy in the 60's. What am I thinking. Its probably California studio pottery huh? Thanks ho2cultcha!
I'm a total gold-hound. I learned early on that if you want to make a lot of (semi) easy money, learn how to sniff out gold, especially unmarked gold. Plus my family has a huge background in jewelry, ...
Lol okay sure! I'll post all of it. I got that bangle in the back during a pre-sale, it's a lot thicker and heavier than they usually are. She told me there would be a lot of gold the next day, so...
It's just one of those hollow clamper bangles that has flowers and stuff on it, nothing earth shattering, but it's big and heavy
Don't you love that European gold that's not marked with a K so few thrift store clerks or estate sale companies knows what it is? Another one of my favorites it's the 14KP, they think it means "plate...
I have one of these too, though mine was made by Charles Loloma's girlfriend. It's on my page somewhere. Same scarab and "hidden meaning" underneath sorta
AH!! I can repay you now! I am from Phoenix and I actually happen to have the *exact* same Thinderbird mug (somewhere). The Clay Shop was along the route of the Fred Harvey tours, that's where this st...
How'd you know right off the bat?
Good one Efes, thanks : )
No drawers or compartments, just a blue enamel inside I actually did find one sort of like it on 1stDibs, but it was "unavailable" The other one they were asking $4,850, it was like 2 inches big...
Ahhhh!!! Yes!!! That's it!! I've had tons of this stuff over the years but never knew wha it was! Thank you guys!!
Harrach!..... That's the name that was on the tip of my tongue. Certainly ozzmarty's piece has all the same points in common, amethyst, white enamel, and gilding. I'm sure that's it. Thank you yet aga...
Ah you got it, I missed it going through their catalogues Thanks swfin!
Thanks everyone! When I saw it at the sale I thought "no WAY......" I actually had to (quickly) dig through the entire Google Image page before I found another example, on the cover of a book. One sol...
My middle school teacher kept a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun on her desk
Facebook group "Collecting Japanese Porcelain" - They will be able to tell you everything you need to know
Actually they are pretty common remakes, probably not older than the 70's. They still put that mark on things they produce today. China is the last thing on earth to trust when it comes to antiques, l...
The last day? If there's something really I want at a sale I get there 6 hours early, leave the house at 2-3am. All the really, really good stuff will be gone from the dealers who got there early on t...
What area do you live in Celine?
Whoa, thank you LoveJewelry!!! I never would have figured that out. There doesn't seem to be much on Google about her, how did you recognize the mark?
Unfortunately the vases, in terms of value, are not anything special or rare. Probably from the 70's or 80's. They're a very, very common type of ware. I am also an Asian-lover, its my specialty. I...
Sunnybrook, did you see my Zuni cuff? Its probably one of the best pieces I have, and I got a great deal, probably paid 1/10th what its worth. Its a genuine piece of "old pawn" too, since it has pawn ...
Your piece was made by Yichang Changjiang ceramics Co. The mark says Yichang
Efesgirl, yeah I know that they are, I've had a few of them over the years. I have this REALLY neat unsigned one that I believe is be Pentti Sarpaneva. Its in my private collection because I think its...
Thanks Vetraio, long time no see, I hope you have a merry Christmas
Efesgirl - Yeah I've sold yixing teapots for over a thousand USD. I have a 19th century enameled one right now I bought for like 5 bucks
I called it moriage on the FB page and they got all mad at me saying it wasn't moriage. I think there's some debate on what "moriage" actually is, but I agree with you, I always thought it just referr...
