Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

I'm trying to identify this etched stemware. It has a bulbous stem and a round, flared bowl with a wide straight optic. The etch is tiny flowers in a swag with ribbons and bows. I've found a blog that identified them as Maryland Glass. The R site calls them UNK412. I don't have a book on Maryland Glass and know nothing about it.

Also, I have a second question. I seem to have 2 sets that are nearly identical. The etch and glass look the same at first glance. But side by side, there are slight differences, even though the heighth on both is 6 3/8". One glass is thinner and holds 10 ounces, the other has a slightly heavier glass and holds 11 ounces. Would you guess these are by the same manufacturer, but different years?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

I found this and thought it was so pretty, but am at a loss as to what it is. I thought maybe a cigarette jar but the bottom is not flat. Not practical for candy, too narrow. 9.5 inches tall made of heavy glass crystal (?) with gold leaf (?) trim. It's heavy! It's fancy! It's a mystery!!


Any help with dates, materials, key words or just what the heck this thing is would be much appreciated.


Sorry for these dang sideways photos

Found this sweet little tile with the image of this painting on it and fell hard. It's so small though, I can't read the name of the artist no matter how hard I try with a magnifying glass. There are SO many paintings in the world ... Google isn't helping unless I get some decent keywords.


Does anyone have a clue? To me it's so wonderful, I keep thinking it must be recognizable to more artistically educated people. I'd love to find a larger print if I knew the name of it!Women painting.jpg

Hello Folks,


I recently acquired this covered dish with an art glass bird finial.  The style of the bird looks a lot like the finial on crystal perfume bottles made by the Pairpoint Glass Company and designed by Robert Gunderson.  However, the bird on my piece is not quite as detailed and the ball it sits on is not as well formed.  Also, I'm not aware that Pairpoint made covered dishes like this one.


I'm guessing this covered dish (candy dish or trinket container) is a knockoff of the Gunderson design.  The piece measures about 12 1/4" to the top of the bird's tail and the dish portion measures approximately 6 1/2" wide.

Does anyone know who made this piece?  Thanks in advance!

Hello Folks,

I recently purchased this Art Deco style glass lamp.  It's made of pink satin glass with a black glass base.  The design features four panels, each depicting a dancing semi-nude woman holding a flower over her head.  The lamp stands about 10 1/8" tall including the base.  The pink portion is 9 1/4" tall and 4 1/4" square.  The base is 5" wide.  There are no manufacturer markings that I can find.

I've seen a vase that looks identical to the pink portion of the lamp that was made by Sarsaparilla Deco Designs in 1984.  However, the vase is slighly shorter (8 7/8" tall) and it has 4 feet.  The bottom of the vase is clearly marked with the Sarsaparilla name.  I looked through the glass at the bottom of the lamp and don't think there is any writing on the bottom of the pink glass.  Also, this piece has no feet on the pink portion of the glass.

I think Sarsaparilla generally modeled their designs after actual items from the Art Deco period.  I'm wondering if this lamp is an original, older piece that Sarsaparilla modeled their vase from.  I haven't been able to find another example of this lamp anywhere on the internet.  Does anyone know who made this lamp?


Any ideas are welcome.  Thanks in advance!

Hello, I picked this religious/church reversible emblem/badge. I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on it. I know it belonged to a member who probaly passed away, that is why the other side is black. I cant make out any words, since thay are in polish. It is dated 1907, and from Sayreville NJ. thank you in advance. sellwell4all20150628_102429_resized.jpg

We were hoping someone could help us identify the porcelain mark on the bottom of this piece. It appears to be a cross sword mark like Meiissen / Dresden, but we are not sure as it is quite blurry and partially on the bottom rim making hard for us to really get a good look at it. If anyone could help us it would be great. The piece is not that good condition wise there are numerous chips and wear points.


See photos - below.


Thank You for looking - have a great day everyone!

I think this is a butter churn but the top, which is hand-hewn, doesn't look like any other churns I've seen. Also, it's very large, stands about 3 1/2 feet tall. The wire around the top braid is an obvious repair, otherwise, no metal used in construction. If it helps, I got this on Nantucket Island at a thrift shop. Any help would be appreciated!

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I have a 94-page user's manual that I am selling which perfectly fits inside a 4 x 7.25 inch bubble mailer that looks exactly like this:


letter-sized bubble mailer.jpg


With the manual inside the bubble mailer, it weighs 2.4 ounces and about a half-inch thick. The question, using only the post office's retail price(s)... is this still a first class letter ($1.15 using the "envelope containing a rigid object" reason) or a first class mail parcel ($2.54)?

Why can't I get ebay involved?

I won this at a estate auction over the week-end where it was described as a replica pistol. It hung on a wall with a framed ball shot bullet (it's too big to fit in this barrel so they were just decorative). Researching it and it's the 8 sided barrel, I believe this was a percussion pistol.


My question is - how do I tell if it's a replica and not a real antique percussion pistol? The feel is real. The weight is heavy. But what has me wondering is the little hole in the piece that the hammer hits when it is fired. I blew through it and it goes through to the barrel !

Isn't this where a cap or other piece went that would spark when the hammer hit it & cause the gunpowder & ball inside the barrel to explode and shoot?


I appreciate any help - I don't want to sell a real pistol as a replica!

July is never the best month to be an eBay seller, but it's a GREAT month for enjoying family, friends, and the great outdoors!  This, of all months, is when you should say YES to fun--so sure, keep up with your listings, but don't let it drag you down….this is the best month to balance work and play, catch your breath, and regroup for the change of seasons that's not as far off as you think!




For luck, we have Magic Listing Dust:





For support, we have a Green Goddess:





And for eye-candy, we have George:






Our group’s purpose is Making Money, so here are some suggestions to keep the money flowing. We've culled these from years of experience and hope you'll be helped by them!


1) LIST IN A VARIETY OF FORMATS - Try some regular auctions, auctions with Buy it Now, Fixed Price, and Fixed Price with Best Offer. Not only will you get a better idea what works for YOU, but you'll offer buyers a variety of buying options.


2) OPTIMIZE YOUR LISTINGS – By using the free Terapeak Keyword app (find it in the Applications tab) and the free Google Keywords tool, learning how to take better photos (there are free courses online), changing the keywords on your store pages regularly, changing the opening blurb in your store header regularly (web spyders love new content) and experimenting with price changes UP as well as DOWN!


3) DON'T LET YOUR UNSOLD LISTINGS LAY AROUND - Check your My eBay page and click on Unsold...get those relisted ASAP! You've already done all the work, so be sure they're viewable by buyers!


4) OPEN A STORE - If you are wondering whether you are better off with a BASIC store or a PREMIUM store, figure that if you have over 250 store items, Premium is a better buy....under 250, Basic is....this is at least a rule of thumb to get you started.   Stores used to be great places to put items and keep them available year round, but with the fee changes, maybe not so much.


However, there are at least four really good reasons to have a store.... 1) listing fees are less if you         have a store, 2) your items can be separated into categories making it much easier for buyers to shop, 3) you can run Promotions and Markdown Manager sales. They are two different ways to generate sales!, and 4) you can put your store in vacation mode when you need to get away for a bit.


5) DEAL WITH BIDDERS, BUYERS, AND ANNOYING INQUISITIVE POTENTIAL BIDDERS IN A PATIENT AND FRIENDLY WAY - Remember that it's worth money in your pocket and life is too short to have your tail in a knot. Write up that snarky reply, get a laugh at it, then hit delete. Kill 'em with kindness


6) KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! This thread is all about MAKING MONEY, that's for sure, but we feel that being supportive of our Lister Sisters and Brothers helps ALL of us. Drop in and hang out! Venting is allowed, but take it easy on the drama, negative vibes and controversial, off-topic issues such as politics and religion.

I picked these up along with 2 pairs of signed Laurel Burch earrings the other day.  There are no marks on them but test strong for sterling.  One of the posts has been replaced.  Other than running across the odd piece here and there, I'm not very familiar with Laurel Burch.  Did she make unsigned sterling pieces?  Haven't been able to find a definitive answer in my searches although there is a pair listed that the seller "believes" is unsigned Laurel Burch.  I'd like to have the confidence to list these as unsigned Laurel Burch if someone can confirm that she did make unsigned sterling pieces.  I did read that she has passed away.  Thanks!

I haven't browsed on eBay for many months. A few minutes ago, I decided to search for "stanley plane" and browse through the 5,000 listings that resulted. I clicked on a listing only to discover that I was apparently opted back into the eBay hide-the-description program. Clicking on the button leads to a "full description" popup. I'm not doing that.

I'm wondering if its an early Gucci, maybe 1950's, which have been bought in Italy.

Thank you!

This is  message I got from a seller and I felt that theseller and myself agreed to make the sale right but come to find out I do not get the item I won but a refund (?) so I messaged the sell about my item and this is what I got back :

Dear zeewolf109-us,

Listen, you non spelling, non punctuating, third grade **bleep**, you don't GET the mic. You got a refund. It was a simple accident with the labels, and instead of being understanding and letting me try to help you, you threatened me. You have by far been the nastiest person I've EVER had to deal with.

No, you were refunded, and you didn't have to pay for the return shipping. You're done. You still expect your item, even after you have your money back? Go **bleep** up a rope.

From PayPal. Read it and weep, you sorry piece of **bleep**. Do not, under any circumstances, contact me again.

Buyer Cancelling Item

Unfortunately I had a very well known person in the Flickr community for dolls. Purchase 2 of my items in the last minutes of my auctions ending.

Once I found out who she was because of her name on her PayPal payment,  and because she has been known for years, to bully and make problems for many people she buys from, on other sites, such as Etsy, Blythe Kingdom etc.

I mad ethe hard choice to cancel her bids and refund her money. Hoping upon hope that she would not rip into me like she does with so many others.


But I did not want to sell her these things either, because she always has a tendancy to find something wrong with them even when there isn't anything wrong and then give you hell for it. She is so well known for these things and for going on rants online about other people...that most people try to stay clear of her now days. There are many more unethical thigns she has done., But tehre isn't enough room here to type them all out!


So...of course she got beyond angry at me, because I cancelled and refunded her money (then I blocked her...wish I would have thought to do that prior!).

She left me 2..... awful, inflamed  and accusitory negative comments out of anger. Based on half truths as well.

Just out of spite...like she is known for.


I have note lowered myself to her standards and left her negative feeback.

But I would like mine removed.

She asked me why I cancelled and I told her as nicely as I could...without being awful about it and then she proceeded to send me a few very nasty emails and then told me to go an F myself. Not a surprise, as she is known for her rants and rages.


More importantly, I have been an Ebay member since 1999 .....That adds up to 16 years.

I have always worked very hard to take accountability for my sales and how I treat buyers (and sellers) and have never had a negative posted on my account...until this crazy person came around.


There is no talking to her about it. Well...maybe.........but she would make you get on your hands and knees and beg for her to change her commnets she left me....and even then....she may still may not find any compassion in that dark heart of hers.

I try very hard to stay clear of people like her  because I don't want to get involved with her whatsoever....and still....she shows up and wreaks her havock, like she has for so many other people.

She takes the award for being the bully in and around the doll community.


How long does it take to find out about getting my 2 negative feedbacks removed please???

This is very unfair to me, as to what has happened with my long time %100 positive feedback.

Selling discussion

I bought an item from a seller with a zero rating and the item showed shipping outside US, I'm in Missouri. He's been a member since Oct 2014. I knew this was very risky before I bought it because the item was about 1/3 of the cost of average. I did it anyway almost as a test of the system (I know, it's not smart but I knew what I was getting into). So, I'm not suprized about where this is going, but I am curious what I can do at this point if anything. 



Bought the item June 5th using Paypal. The item had an estimated ship date of June 24th to July 29th. I thought that was really interesting. I was among a total of 6 people who bought his item. 

On June 14th the item showed "shipped" in paypal but without any tracking information. I emailed the seller that day and got no response. I emailed Ebay to give me his contact info and they sent me a phone number. The seller's name is null since it's gibberish, the phone number shows up as being in Wisconson and his address shows as being Wisconson. Again, the item was listed as shipping outside the US....hmmm. 

Anyway, I called the guy and left a voicemail and emailed him again with a notice that I would be reporting him for false user information. 


I've gotten no response. Now, I made the decision to go ahead and report him and attempt to get some type of stir but when I attempt to do that in Ebay I get a message that since his estimated ship date is July 29th " my item may still be on it's way" and on that date I should contact the seller. 


Well that doesn't help me at all since I already did and got nothing/ Plus I've heard some sellers don't ever respond since it's almost an automated buesiness so how can Ebay just rely on "contact the seller" in all cases to resolve my issue? Basically, I can't find a "next step" when the seller marks it shipped in Paypal way before the estimated ship date and now it's past the point of when the shipment should be here. How I do get past the estimated ship date in Ebay? Or at least let them know that Paypal shows shipped, therefore the estimation of July 29th no longer applies. 


Thanks for any help

I want to close my store because ebay no longer gives me my free auctions, only fixed price, and my items do not do well that way. Can I even close my store And if so, how do I do it?

Selling discussion

Can I close my store?

I came to the help/ answer section to try to learn if there is a bidding glitch from smart phones / tablets, etc. because of an issue one of my repeat buyers just messaged me about.


She wrote me a few hours ago to say that she can't enter her bid on my auction -- she said she is trying to enter a very healthy maximum bid and gets the message "reserve not met."  I checked my listing and there is no reserve on this listing (I never do reserves).   I had a like-item close at a price 50% lower than it ever has before last night (Sunday evening) which perplexed me and I'm wondering if other buyers experienced the same glitch last night.


I wrote her and asked if she was bidding from a smart phone or similar (it's my impression more glitches occur in that environment), but I haven't heard back.  Any insight would be appreciated -- I imagine I will cause myself problems if I ask someone I know to place an experimental bid (!) and I'm dying to get this figured out Smiley Happy

I'm a pretty patient person, but also trying to build up myself on eBay. I had a buyer make an offer, I counter offered, they accepted it, but haven't paid now for 3 days. I have sent them emails not asking when they will pay but the first email was a thank you for your purchase, if you can pay by 2:30pm I can ship this out for you today (same day they bought it and was sent minutes after they accepted). Then Saturday I sent another email saying once again thank you for your purchase, please make your payment before 11am because my post office is only open today from 9:30-11:30am. I haven't sent any emails today and they haven't responded to any of the messages. I looked at their profile and they have positive feedback and most of their recent purchases say quick payments or prompt payments. How long would you wait and if they don't pay, what do I have to do then? Thanks!

Bidding & Buying discussion

clear typographical error i made and some body buy one item of value $45.000 in $45 . I refound the money and cancel the order but the buyer write me that i have to send the item. He wrote me that they don't want a money back . I couldn't honor the bidding contract becouse the value was a clear mistake.  

Selling discussion

I have posted a laptop that I want to sell and everytime it does sell (which has been 3 times now) I always get an email asking for my paypal email.  As I understand this is a way people use to scam sellers.  But it's happened everytime I try to sell this thing and its becoming really annoying now.  Not one of those people who have tried to buy it in the past have ever responded back to my messages or even payed.  One of them was even an account that was made literally to bid on the auction then just left untouched.  


So is there really nothing that can be done against this??

Selling discussion

20 measly listings a month now?  Real smart move ebay, I assume that most sellers are like me, and absolutely hate listing items.  It's boring, and it's tedious work, especially thanks to ebay's ancient, half brained photo uploading applet.   Whoever coded it, doesn't seem to understand that people want to drag and drop, and then be able to drag each picture into their desired order.  It's not hard to implement that kind of functionality into a website.  Instead, each time you go to upload your photos, you're stuck making mental notes of filenames, reverting to thumbnail view in the explorer window that pops up, and finally scrolling to find the pictures that you could have simply dragged over from the folder you had open in the first place.  Listing is a major headache, but it should be the smoothest part of selling on ebay and it should not cost sellers a cent.  It obviously has nothing to do with keeping the amount of junk listings at a minimum, considering 95% of ebay is just that.


Point is, nobody wants to pay listing fees, when they are already coughing up 13% of the selling price when a buyer actually comes along (kind of rare these days).  If items aren't selling, you're throwing away money and wasting your worthless 20 "free" listings.


Ebay is purposely limiting the amount of transactions that are made on the site.  Either that, or they simply don't understand the consequences of annoying and frustrating the sellers who choose their site as a selling platform.

Well, I'm heading over to Bonanza

Sold a shirt and buyer received it today. The description included the following:


The following is to protect myself as well as protecting the buyer from unwanted items:
All clothing items are purchased 2nd hand or later. Although this is a smoke free home, I cannot guarantee the same from previous owners. If this is of concern, please refrain from purchasing the item. 
Thank You!
Received this message today from the buyer:
Hello. Wanted to let you know I received the top I bought from yo and thank you for the fast shipping. The top has a very strong odor of smoke. And being in the ziploc bag I smelled it immediately. I would prefer not to have something with an odor that strong. Please tell me what you would like me to do. I contacted you to make arrangement rather than go through ebay and make a problem out of it against your acct. I respect a seller and give them the chance to resolve it.
I have no problem refunding on return, but the seller sounds as if she is threatening me by going to Ebay if I do not bend to her will. I looked at her feedback given and she gave a negative yesterday to a seller for a smoke issue. The seller responded that the buyer made a claim just to avoid paying return shipping.
Buyer sounds as if she is either looking for a free item or trying to avoid paying return shipping. Smoke issue WAS in the description.
Should I take my chance and let her go to ebay and try fighting it, or just make her happy?

Should I Fight This Buyer Request?

I'm a new seller.  I find I pay 10% on sold  item price, plus ten percent of shipping charges, if I offer free shipping ( where I've calculated shipping costs into item price).  If buyer pays shipping, I'm STILL charged ten percent as that price is added into his payment to me.  Ebay makes 10% off SHIPPING charges?  Seems bogus to me.  Is this unavoidable, or is there a way to avoid charges on shipping costs?

Hi i'm new here, i'm from philippines

Hello, I have a buyer who is interested in an item. She stated that she meant to choose the Buy it Now price ($10.99), but instead chose the Auction price ($7.99) by mistake.

I told her that I would end the listing and she could purchase it, however, there is a second bidder watching the item as well, and the first bidder has emailed me wirh an offer of $15.00 ffor the item. How should this be handled? Thanks.  


Thanks for your quick responses!!! I have no problem selling the item at the Buy it Now price of $10.99, but I've discovered that canceled bids cannot be restored so I will not cancel it. The listing ends in 2 days (July 1) so I think the best thing to do is sell it to the bidder at the $7.99 price since I don't think the item is worth getting into a bidding war.
