@kwqd , those are nice pieces! Hard to believe people often pass them up.
@kwqd , I dunno yet. What site did you use? Maybe I can find out some more info.
@apostata , very nice! I’m always willing to learn more on far eastern porcelain.
@apostata , Thanks again for the analysis!
@Apostata , wow early Edo period. So like 1680-1700? If so it’s much older than predicted.
@shareurpassion , quite well.
@kivatinitz , that’s the same one too lol
@vetraio50 , it kind of looks like a Britannia marking? The line at the bottom marking looks like the base where she would stand. Kinda similar but to worn.
@ehunt , those are some of my favorites. The pink clambroth has faceted pontils from the 1850’s and is probably 1 1/8”. My favorite of the three!
@apostata , I’ve posted some newer photos of root marks. Couldn’t find any good Manganese blooms to test. One of them have been repaired. I think a TL test might be a solution to help me uncover th...
@apostata , yep! The acetone didn’t remove a speck of the paint.
@Lugnuts , The hallmarks are quite worn, the gold looks a bit rough, but the acid test showed they were at least 18k. One of the marks looks like a bust of a woman, or some kind of animal head.
@apostata , thank you for the info!
Keramikos, thanks for the info!
@racer4four , Thanks! I actually found a similar item online with the eye shape beads. They are Buddhist prayer beads :)
@ho2cultcha , will do!
@mp.kunst , thank you for helping me identifying this! I really need to brush up on my antique artworks, pun not indented haha.
@AnythingObscure , Yes it is. Absolute monster of a piece haha, and for $35 I paid for it.
@Bruce99 thanks! I will update once I have the chance.
@keramikos , thanks! I’ll give it a try.
@CanyonRoad , Thanks for the information! And yes the clay does have the black specks.
@kwqd , https://www.linkstothepast.com/milwaukee/mkeartistsU.php https://books.google.com/books/about/Estate_of_Ruth_Langland_Holberg_Born_in.html?id=pXMztwAACAAJ These are the only links I...
@HappyHourOwl , I know this bird is definitely neat! My cats agree as well so I have to keep it off. It’s still very loud.
@Alfred101 , I was leaning towards Aultman as well. Excellent looking piece of machinery!
@gargoylecollector , thanks!
@dav2no1 , I removed it from the frame to look for an edition number or paper watermark, but there wasn’t. I believe it was a page removed from his human comedy lithograph book, I don’t know about th...
Wow mystery solved!
@dav2no1 , definitely! By far the best thing in there was a signed colored lithograph signed by Picasso! Going to have to get it appraised.
@ho2cultcha , it’s bronze. The censer insert still has a gold shine to it. The weight of this piece is heavy, and it’s very durable... fell over while transporting it inside didn’t have a dent anyw...
@dav2no1 ,thanks! It was an online auction thanks to COVID.
@truthordare , Thanks! The hunt never stops!
@carmenisacat , the main photo is the polished version. I ran out of my polishing solution so I just used a quick batch of Baking a Soda and a soft brush. But once you compare the two photos it’s a...
@shareurpassion , Thanks! I’ve been trying to put a name to this piece for months. The thrift store I buy these from had a huge donation of Navajo Jewelry. I was told the day prior there was much m...
@shareurpassion , Thanks for the info! I paid 12.88 for this piece at a thrift shop!
It kinda reminds me of the Dior versions of Bulova
Update: After a little more research I’ve found it closely resembles the 1953 Riviera Set.
Thanks! I knew when I saw the torch it might of been Olympics. But I never knew about Izzy the ‘96 Atlanta Olympics mascot.
Update: The case is 10KT Rose Gold
@Gillian, whoops it’s actually 24 1/2”
After some cleaning and research I believe this to be made by a GL & Co. I’ve taken some photos of the hallmarks as well. Can’t make out much on the hallmarks but the makers mark is legible G Loveri...
@Broochman, I wonder if this is a 1941 stamp after comparing it to ones from the 50’s and 60’s. I wonder if it could be Moghul Collection? I know not all pieces had a patent mark.
@Broochman, I was even thinking it was part of the 1951 Gems of India Collection rather than the 1965 Jewels of India. Since it doesn’t have a copyright mark.
@Elisabethan, wow it’s gotta be related to that. The flag pole and hut/teepee is in the background. Very cool!
I brought them into a jeweler. The three larger ones might be Sonoran. The green ball and white colored ones were Howlite. I’m going to bring the three to a different gemstone expert and see what h...
*Update: After some research I’ve come to the conclusion it is a bubble wand. But info is divided by people who believe it’s Victorian or some sort of steam punk kind of more modern reproduction.
@shareurpassion , after a little more research the stones look more like light blue Jasper.
@shareurpassion , the clasp isn’t marked anywhere. I know they usually come with silver clasps. I’ve read that the stone has to be washed often and should be kept out of the sun and heat or it start...
@fhrjr2 , it was being sold as an incense burner by the thrift store who labeled it that. I guess they thought the pots the woman sits by is filled with sand which you could stick a incense stick in....
Thanks Phil, they seem real when I scratch them on my tooth and seem heavier than plastic. But I suppose I should just get them looked at to be sure lol.
@IVAN49, Yea I've noticed on eBay only a couple of other genuine Franklin Mint. This egg is over a pound of 925 silver, studded with 46 Amethyst, 12 Emeralds, and 4 Diamonds. I actually got it in a ...
