  1. Hellooo, I can only tell you part of it. Under the NSK at the bottom it says something like “Japan Seiko Ltd”. I can’t help with the rest sorry. Cool calendar!
  2. It is very cool! I don’t know what it is but I found this when I did a google search... hope yours is a meteorite too! http://www.wkar.org/post/doorstop-turns-out-be-meteorite-worth-100k#stream/0
  3. That’s a really cute brooch. I googled “treasure sterling brooch” and found this: https://www.rubylane.com/item/479375-00676/1940x27s-Oceans-Treasures-Sterling-Mother-Pearl
  4. Beautiful tools from a dying art! Did you find this website? I’m sure they’ve got more info on the company: https://oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/c8q52vtm/entire_text/
  5. You’re right they’re tools used in bookbinding. Fillets (with the wheel head) are used hot for impressing lines either blind or in gold usually on leather covers. An awl for making holes, decorating s...
  6. Looks like a clay ocarina /whistle.
  7. The writing reminds me of Chinese seal script or bronze script.... I might be on the wrong track though
  8. Hello, I looked them up in a Chinese dictionary app. The ones with more simple looking characters are in simplified Chinese (used in mainland China) and say (Bai Nian Hao He) may you live a long and h...
  9. It looks like a reproduction of “Free as the Wind” by August Albo (1893 – 1963). My dad had a beautiful print of this, it’s a favourite of mine! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Albo https...
  10. The mark says “Da Qing Yongzheng Nian Zhi” which you can google to look for more information. I’m not an expert but these marks don’t always mean the piece is from the time period indicated in the mar...
  11. I’ve seen someone in Australia making ceramic drums, and I thought of that when I saw your drum. I think they originated from the Igbo people of Nigeria. I’d love to hear what yours sounds like! I lov...
  12. Go right to the bottom of this link and look at the marks under the heading “Seto Porcelain- Yamahiro Toen” http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/seto.shtml I’m not any kind of expert so I can’t say mu...
  13. They’re cute. I don’t know anything about them, but the mark says Dai Nippon.
  14. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kDS9T7TX6Pw
  15. An Udu drum?
  16. Just posted photos for you :-)
  17. Happy to help
  18. Sorry, that link's not the right one, I don't know why it didn't work. Anyway the link wasn't really important
  19. I wonder what the K means. Here's the long answer to your question :-O apologies if you already know this... You can look up any Chinese character but it's got a few challenges. Each character is ...
  20. I can only help with the translation of the mark. It say Qianlong Nian Zhi. Look for that heading on this link about half way down the page: http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/20thcenturychina.shtml ...
  21. It says Shou or longevity This is not exactly the same as yours, but has the same character: https://www.terapeak.com/worth/vintage-carl-art-gold-filled-jade-pendant-necklace-chinese-shou-sym...
  22. The pattern name is Venetian https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/119200-johnson-bros-england-venetian-serving-pl http://www.thepotteries.org/mark/j/johnson_brothers.html
  23. I'll try again...... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_China
  24. I just read your title properly and realised you already knew that white metal part :-/ just ignore my useless previous comment! Anyway I think the final mark MAY be Hua (traditional character) an ...
  25. It says K Bai Jin. I don't know what the last character says. Baijin means Platinum. ;-)
  26. It looks to be number 89 in the "fang..." subheading on this web page: http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/macaustyle.shtml
  27. Japanese translation/pronunciation "Hakuundo Shubei Sei, meaning: Made for the White Cloud Hall by Shubei"
  28. Seto Kato Second subheading down on this web page: http://gotheborg.com/marks/seto.shtml Japanese....
  29. That translations in Chinese. But by the looks of the second website, looks like it's actually Japanese.....? I'm no pottery expert by the way, just helping with the language side a bit.
  30. It says Bai yun (white cloud) Tang (hall) ZhouBing (name) Zhi (made) Was a challenge to find it. But these two site were the best I found. You can copy and paste into google translate for the ...
  31. https://www.reddit.com/r/ChineseLanguage/comments/2226zw/found_this_teapot_buried_deep_within_my_grandmas/
  32. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w178879591
  33. Really pretty! They look familiar, I think my mum has some of this, I'm sure she has the bottle and stopper in two sizes.... might not be exactly the same- I can't remember.
  34. I agree with you, you can't help but feel this was made in love.
  35. The first picture's a bit blurry, but Lucy looks pretty clear. The other names look really faded, I'm not sure what they say. I wonder if they reused old paper or if pages of the letter on the back ar...
  36. @eye4beauty I thought the S also had some name like Jack, and the A has something like Josephine, and the M had one or two names too....? Very faintly
  37. Here's my guess at what it says (definitely a guess and too much imagination!) My dear - It is with hope(?) that I write my self to ask - - - mind - - that you're(???) presently in - - the ...
  38. Sorry, it's hard to see in a photo. Pretty gorgeous to have this. Is the back written in pencil or ink?
  39. Wish I could read the other side!
  40. Does it say "Lucy" in the top part of the S?
  41. Nice collection! I think the mystery critter is a Chiton. I really love them, they stick to the rocks like living fossils.
  42. If you turn the first picture clockwise once, the two blocky looking marks are the Chinese characters Zhongguo which means China the country. The rest I can't make out :-/ :-) a very pretty piece
  43. Just thought if I can give any bit of help it might start off some new leads for research :-)
  44. Oh no!! I'm not an expert!
  45. It says Da Qing Qianlong Nian Zhi Look in the link below more than half the way down the page under the sub heading: "Qianlong Nian Zhi, Da Qing - Qianlong Period Make, Great Qing Dynasty" http:...
  46. And also here just over half way down the page under the section Qianlong Nian Zhi, Da Qing http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/20thcenturychina.shtml#qianlong
  47. For the stamp look about half way down on this link under Qianlong http://www.gotheborg.com/marks/qingmarks.shtml#qianlong
  48. I had fun using this as some Chinese translation homework.... I found out the meaning I think. It says, reading from the top down and right to left: Jiaqing chao bao Chao =dynasty Bao = precious ...
  49. I think it's Japanese but I'm really not sure. I study Chinese and it says 100 million (or Yi Yi). Using google translate in Japanese the meaning is still 100 million but is pronounced differently: i...
  50. I really appreciate the help you've given me before, so I'm more than happy if I've helped you :-)
