    • Hello All:

      I have attached some pictures of some items I cant not date or dont know what they are. I will list what I do know. Please help. I am in Norton, Virginia.

      Porcelain Bowl- The bowl is maked Italy 3446E on the bottom.

      Turquoise Crock Jar- Jar or small churn with two handles from ohio river valley. The clay on the bottom is a white or off white color. No Markings

      Turquoise Jug- Maybe called a Rebecca Jug. Bottom with red clay from North Carlonia or East Tennessee. May be Cole Pottery. Unsure.  Markings

       

      Any idea on value or what they are.

      Thanks

    • We are downsizing (kids out of the house!) and I have a set of furniture I received from a friend of my mother's years ago that I am considering selling. I know nothing about antiques and am looking for any info anyone may have about these pieces, particularly value. The dining table and chairs are Nichols & Stone (I think the number on the tag says 2093). The rest I believe match the chair which has a badge that says This is a Cushman Colonial Creation. Thanks!

      Set includes (photos attached):

      Dining table (with built-in extensions) 

      4 dining chairs and 1 King's chair

      Desk

      Chair

      Dresser with mirror

      Bed

      Will continue to find info for you.

    • My family has an end table with a matching footstool that came from South America 1940-1947. The tops are thick leather and have a design carved on it. The legs are wood and carved also. An uncle was in the navy when he purchased this.

      Has anyone seen something similar?

      Thanks,

      Darci

    • These lamps belonged to my mother-in-law. The base is marble and I believe the globes are hand-painted. Would appreciate any information you can give me.

    • <p>Hello! We recently bought our first home and the previous owners left us an entire room full of goodies! One is a beautiful Rainaud lamp with the number 20 stampled on the bottom. The stand and the glass are all in great condition, but the plug has been damaged. I was hoping someone could help me figure out the value as I'm pretty new to all of this. Thank you!</p>

    • Hello guys,

      I came across this indian chief painting at the death of my friend's mother.  She had a yard sale and this was the only item I bought as it had belonged to her grandmother who acquired it from her mother in 1902.  There is a letter that came with it which said that there were only two of these paintings in existence as the artist only made two and he gave it to the great grandmother's husband as payment for service.  

      It was shown to a few museums in the 60's for sale, as was told that it is a great musuem piece, and they would purchase  it  around $5000 at that time.  The letter went on to say that in the 80's the family went through hard times and due to family fued it was stored away until the death of my firend's mother who was a Navajo Indiand in Arizona.

       

      The signature says JH Nicholls ( I think)

      If anyone could help me on this I would greatly appreciate it.  Appraisals included.

    • Hello to the Forum!

      I am wondering if there are any members who have an interest in antique slot machines, coin op games, Etc.

      Personally I have been involved in the antique slot machine hobby for 35 years and as there is no Topic here for them I thought I would ask!
