  1. Apparently the region of Bassano di Grappa is not only famous for the liquor also because of the ceramics. Maybe you can contact the museum of the region for more info: http://www.museibassano.it/P...
  2. Apparently is called Pandan Box. It carries spices which the married women die their hair root with. About the peacock: Peacock (Pavo cristatus), which is a symbol of grace, joy, beauty and love is...
  3. Oh thank you guys! I never would have find it without you (I didn't even know it was a peacock) I was trying to search by image but nothing. Bummer but at least not gonna scam anyone. Thank you!!
  4. Definitely, I think this community is the best in the world. Passionate free sharing of knowledge and appreciation of your findings, not just because they are pretty...because they tell stories :)
  5. So beautiful!
  6. This in Spain is what we call "botones charros", very typical from Mexico but their origin is in Salamanca province in Spain. Check it online under that name, you will find thousands. They think the o...
  7. Update: I took it to an antique dealer, she said it is very very interesting and also that it was ivory and a snuff box, instead of cigarette box :) who would have known! But now I have much bigger cl...
  8. I have seen many of these in different countries of the world. I think they are from the 40's. Very beautiful, keep it. They can be very expensive some day
  9. Is quite big, like hand palm big so I don't know. Trying to find something but is so difficult, thank you for trying!
  10. OOOh ok had no idea! Thank you! But still can't find anything similar, I find only toys :S
  11. I found very similar shapes by the name of Moser style bohemian glass...they seem pretty worth it!
  12. Wow, rucklezglass, that is the first information that I get nowhere, Thank you!!!. Any extra help, like reference pictures of any other similar ones would be great. I believe this one is authentic an...
  13. I would go with Eastern European Greek, Bulgarian...
  14. I believe this kind of rings are Berber
  15. I think definitely is european
  16. Still needing desperately some information :(
  17. Thank you Efesgirl :) Yes I found those pics but I was not sure if mine were simply a copy or they were antique. I'll try to take them to a jeweler. Thank you!
  18. The only way to be Egyptian it would be if it were coptic (they are the first said christians) and their jewelry does not resemble at all :). Anyway, whatever it is, you have a great and nice mystery ...
  19. Hi Jewel! I am not an expert but the mixture of the 2 materials wouldn't say it is "royal". Nevertheless I suggest you to definitely consult some European antiquary. The detail of the pearls formin...
  20. This folding screens are typical from China
  21. Oh! Nice clue I found. One of them is from Fraureuth in Saxony Germany. The factory closed in 1933, so there you have it: http://porzellanausstellung-fraureuth.de/Die-Fabrik/Geschichte/
  22. I think are one of the most beautiful things I saw in CW. This ceramic is one of the most (maybe the most) famous in Germany. You could maybe write them to ask them about the pieces as long as they ev...
  23. Well I have one similar. I think it was a kind of souvenir or early advertisement material from the 30's-40's I believe.
  24. Is really beautiful. How delicate women were, amazing :)
  25. This one really looks art nouveau :). Nice fan and well preserved
  26. Hi, just recently looking for information on my feather fan I found yours. For some of the details I thought it was Chinese and I just did some research, because of the shape I am sure it is Chinese a...
  27. Well I cannot read anything Spanish but maybe cause it is really faded. Maybe now looking at it more carefully, although the kind of "flower" around the shield on the first photo was not familiar to m...
  28. Definitely not Spanish, cannot identify (Spanish myself) anything familiar sorry
  29. Nobody :(?
  30. I don't have any information but I just love it! Nice catch!
  31. I have seen similar pieces in Israel, but this one has no pomegranates so I am not sure
  32. It looks art deco
  33. The souvenir is the only paradise from which one cannot be expeled
  34. It says Synedrion A.X.E.P.A 1965. Synedrion means a gathering and the letters belong to the American - Hellenic Educational Progressi?e Association. Maybe you can start with that
  35. Well, if you need to sell them this is probably the best for both of you. You need the money and they need a place to be kept, most of us sell our stuff and it is always heartbreaking to do it but tha...
  36. Like this club is similar (not telling is this one) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FC_Zürich but you can maybe look that way
  37. Maybe from Switzerland from some sport team or university?
  38. It looks older than the 60's
  39. Thank you, I recently got an appraisal and it was good but I don't know how good. They told me it didn't achieve the amount proper for their auction house so I don't know what to do
  40. This is definitely Greek, no doubt
  41. I only know this flower is a symbol of royalty here in Spain
  42. I think you have the greatest pieces ever!
  43. Thank you so much!!! You are amazing! I'll do more research and keep you posted. I love this site for colleagues like you ;)
  44. Probably here you can find some info: https://www.royalcopenhagen.com/home
  45. Great piece to start your story with us :). Definitely a great find!
  46. Spanish, exactly Castillan knights and it says "Knights XIII Century" It has a typical Castillan style which seems old but it does not always mean it is. Any other text or sign?
  47. kytarango really?? I thought it was worth but not for a Christies appraisal :O. Thank you so much for the support. I'll definitely keep you posted :)
  48. I don't think there would be anything behind the mirror, usually this marks are to be seeing and there would be not reason to hide them. I have found many of this dresser mirrors on the internet, real...
  49. Well I can tell this is Chinese and I really think is a copy cause Chinese sign it with red stamps. Try to find anybody who can speak Chinese, maybe they can tell you some of the characters (depending...
