Fond these in an auction box lot. Identical in size and shape, 4" high, 4" wide at base and about 3.5" wide at mouth. One featyres a hunt scene, the other a pair of "raised" horses.
I've seen similar mugs listed as "Gibson" or Staffordshire. However, neither of these have clear maker IDs, just a little dab of gold paint on the bottom. Both have three stilt marks on the bottom. Thanks in advance for any help!
I got this item from a house clean-out, and I have no idea what it is. The guy was into vintage electrical / radio / tv stuff if that helps at all. He even had it tagged unidentified.
I have found 2 of these listed on here that are snake skin and look exactly like mine. They are older and were not marked inside. Just can't figure out what kind of skin or leather mine is. Any experts on here care to give it a whirl?
It was well worn inside and apparently loved.
So many different ribbed patterns but so far, none I've found match this bowl. Rolled rim, squared bottom base. 9.5" across the top x 4.5" deep x 2.5" bottom base. Smooth inside, ribbed on outside. Any thoughts? TIA....

I just called into your help line and I don't feel confident that the representative got my point.
All the does is telle me "something went wrong." It suggests I go to My ebay or ebay home page, which does not good. I've tried two different credit cards.
The stones are speckled light and darker blue, Lapis family? The artisan initals are LP - have searched for the LP and have waded through LP records with no help. Possibe to be Native American? Thoughts and opinions please.
#1 Looks like sodalite, middle eastern and older What do you think?
#2 Could I call these cannetille? The mark looks Egyptian or maybe Israeli, what are your opinions? The cabs look like sleeping beauty turquoise but how do I rule out glass? I also think these look older....
#3 Antique? Australian? Not marked but it gives me an Austrian vibe but I am not too good at picking that out yet, still learning!!! The bi-cones feel like glass but I think because of the weight and coldness that they might be crystal Sadly it's missing the dangle from the centerpiece but I am thinking it's not a deal breaker
#4 Is this a perfume charm? It smells like perfume and looks like an old, hardened sponge inside Can anyone date it?
Thanks for all the help I'm trying to list these for this week's sales Good luck to everyone else!

Hi - i have a pair of cloisonne floral enamel clip on earrings I believe I purchased in the 1980s. There is a mark on the back (a crown I believe) but no other name or mark. I could not find anything in trying to research the "crown" except, of course, for Crown Trifari. Has anyone seen this mark or know who the mark belongs to?
Thanks so much in advance! Mary
I have only one of these but it is large (2" x 1.5") and beautiful! Is it a shoe clip?
Hi, I'm not sure how to describe this bracelet. The links pull apart sort of like an expansion bracelet. I've searched under sterling expansion bracelet and sterling stretch bracelet, and not seen anything similar. Are there any other terms that could beused to describe the construction of this bracelet? The only marking is Sterling, Pat Aug 20 1907.
Thanks for any help with this.
I was wondering if anyone might know who this hat box belongs to. The picture below is from a closed listing, item # 371550271726

Mark says Sterling, Denmark and a makers mark that is very worn--looks like something B. Any help would be appreciated.
I found this token and was hoping someone can ID where it came from. On the front is says Adam Exchange Good for one drink and on the back is says Brunswick Co. The token is in an octagon shape and measures 1" across. Any help will be appreciated.
Mark says Taxco, Mexico and MB in the center--I looked at the Mexican marks but can't find anything like that--any idea who it is?
We were hoping someone could recognize the mark on this figurine.
Any help identifying the creator would be great.
It is approx 12" tall and the mark looks like a wreath over a backward and forward "E"
Thanks for looking

Chanel ~ real or not?.
Only marking is 925 ~ prong set chips, I haven't had them tested to see if they are real or not.
I found this at a local thrift store & bought it because it was so cool. But I'm having a heck of a time finding out what it is - I've been told it was to sit hot pans & pots on & that it was a door knocker!
Can anyone please tell me what I have? Is it bronze?
Thanks; I appreciate any help.
I've tried googling the names on this but it offers options wit names that are close, but not these. I think I remember someone telling me these were the 5 brothers? sisters? of Hindu mythology.

I am looking for assistance in identifying the piece shown in the attached images. It is a bisqe porcelain figure of a seated black / negro male with a bowl in his lap. It is just under 14" tall. I'd like to figure out the age, country of manufacture (Germany?), and purpose. Thanks.
Is this Prada authentic? If so, style name, era? TIA!!!
Does anyone recognize this print or the artist. It was printed from the John Drescher CO., and is signed. I'm not quite sure but the signature looks like K Izolli...not pulling up anything with that name, or variations. Found one example of the print, but the dealer wasn's sure who the artist was either. Thanks for any help

I found this lovely doll at Goodwill, but I don't have alot of experience with dolls. I found a site online and I believe the style is Flat-Top aka Civil War head, but I also know that they were reproduced in the 1960's and 70's. The arms appear to be made of soft leather. She measures about 10 3/4" in total height. The porcelain part measures about 2" from top to bottom. I don't know when the clothes were made, the dress has two very small snaps in the back. Could anyone give me an idea of the age and/or origin of this doll?
I appreciate the help!
We were hoping someone could recognize the mark on these figurines

In the My eBay section when I relisted several of my items the picture on the list doesn't show up.
It's okay when I hit the link to the item to see the posting but it's easier to be able to look at the photo

I'm back asking for help again. I've looked at some many patterns I am seeing glass in my sleep! This yellow, it's a lighter than my amber glass items, is one of a couple that I just can't find the pattern name or maker. Anyone know this thumbprint style pattern?

I bought this intriguing painting at the thrift store today....had a tag on the back that said Brewer #25 (or #75) and possibly "babies"? It has glass over pic so I didn't want to use flash but it is very different. Can anybody identify artist's signature?
I have a no return policy. Recently I sold a Tiffany diamond necklace that the buyer first claimed didn't look as good in person as it did in the photos. I said I took the photos, they are the exact item and not manipulated in anyway. I also gave a detailed description of the item. The buyer then said "well, the truth is, it looks fake". I offered to return her money if she got any proof whatsoever that it is fake. Buyer then stated they dont care if its real they just dont like it and are going to get their refund. I have spoken to Ebays "high value resolutioin department" several times and was told that buyer would need to show some kind of proof that the item was fake or SNAD in order to reutrn it. I just spoke to ANother ebay rep who said that NO, everyone else I spoke to at Ebay was either wrong, or the notes they wrote said something different than what they told me. One guy said he would write to buyer stating that if the buyer provided proof the item was fake I would accept a return. NOW ebay is claiming THAT WAS NEVER TOLD TO ME AND NEVER HAPPENED! What????
Then the guy basically said if the buyer claims the item looks fake (yet refuses to even get it tested) they can return it. Period. Then the guy also said that if its fake its illegal to send it through the mail back to me. I said, you just contradicted yourself. If ithe buyer beleives it is fake how can they legally return it to me? The buyer is obviously lying and changed their story so many times as to why they should get to return an item that is authentic and accurately described just by saying "it looks fake to me but I wont attempt to prove it". I know the item is real and the buyer has already left me neg. feedback stating that it is fake.
The NO RETURN POLICY means NOTHING. Ebay will always side with the buyer even if it obvious the buyer will say anything to get a return. This is not fair to small sellers like myself. Ebay has frozen over $1000 in my paypal account until this is resolved and any way you slive it, Ebay is going to allow the buyer to return the item because she lied.
Am I the only one that thinks this is crazy?
By the time I pay EB fees and PP fees I have barely made a profit Any one else feel this way ?
Say you sold an expensive item, ~$1500.00, say.
Ebay doesn't let you insure an item for more than $1000.00, so you decide to ship from the post office, forgoing your online shipping discount, in order to get that extra $500 of insurance.
But you send your significant other to the post office.
You know this is a stupid idea, but you give him a list, and you tell him to read that list, verbatim, to the post office person.
Your list says:
-The address is printed on the package. Make sure postal worker enters address into the system perfectly.
-Insure for $1500.00
-Purchase Signature Confirmation
-Save all receipts
-Send me photos of the receipts
Significant other comes home without signature confirmation, because postal worker tells him he doesn't need it, because insured mail requires a signature anyway.
BUT, that's NOT "signature confirmation"... it's not the kind of thing that you can prove online.
So, let's say the buyer receives and (someone) signs for the item, but then claims via either ebay or paypal that in fact they did not receive the item. Is there any protection?
1. Paypal: No. Paypal requires the kind of signature confirmation that can be tracked online... and the "signature service" that comes with usps insurance does not meet this requirement.
3. USPS itself? Presumably usps isn't going ot cover the cost of a "stolen" item that was signed for.
Is this a situation where you could be out the item and have to refund the buyer the $1500? Is there any protection?
I recently sold a pair of Nike foe a vey low price. To day I received an email from the buyer that the sneakers arrived and they like them and want to keep them, but want a partial refund because they are not leather as my description stated.
the first line in the description states they are a combination of leather, mesh and synergic upper. This buyer has tons of feedback and I'm guessing knows want they are doing.
how should I handle this. I know they will open a case and give me a negative.
BYW the description is as per Nike.
Hi Fellow eBayers,
My grandfather, the late R.G. Smith, is counted among the greatest aviation artists in the history of aviation. I don't mean to brag, it is the truth. While I would love to keep all of his artwork, we have decided to sell a few originals (although we will stick mostly to selling prints).
I know it sounds cliche, but it's almost time to send our daughter to college.
To that end, I would appreciate input on the value of an original watercolor by a renowned artist. Also, what are these planes? What do you think is being depicted in this painting. Any suggestions on how to position the listing to prospective buyers?
I appreciate you thoughts and time,
I just sold my old video card yesterday and the guy didn't pay yet so I've been waiting to ship it. Now today Ebay sent me an email saying he is no longer registered on Ebay and he is a suspicious buyer. They cancelled his bids on my auction and said any associated fees have been credited back to my account.
So my question is: can I go ahead and do a second chance offer to the second highest bidder? Even though my auction is still showing in my sold items category. It says I'm still awaiting payment from that guy. So does Ebay need to close this case or something like that? Or should I just go on with the second chance offer and consider this matter settled?
First of all apologies for my english as it's not my native language.
To make the long story short.
About two months ago a buyer from US ordered a pair of boots from me (I am located in Poland). I've shipped them as normal (I often ship to US and never had a negative comment), but for reasons that were beyond my power the package was stuck unusually long in transit. The buyer was understandably upset as he needed the boots before Christmas. When he realised it wouldn't happen he petitioned Ebay to have his money refunded. Even though I did provide a tracking number, Ebay ruled in his favour and his payment was taken from my PayPal account. A couple of days later I got a notification that the package has finally arrived in US. I contacted the buyer and asked him kindly that since he opted out of the transaction, not to pick up the package so that USPS would ship it back to me. He agreed and told me he wouldn't pick it up.
The package arrived at his local postal office on January 2nd. When I typed the tracking number into USPS site it said that if nobody would pick up the package until February 2nd, then it would be returned to sender. So I waited. Today I've checked the tracking number again out of curiosity and saw that on February 4th the status of the package was changed to DELIVERED with the buyer's city tagged as place of destination. My first thought of course was that the guy has swindled me and took the boots at the last moment. But then I looked at the date again and noticed that the packaged was marked as "delivered" on February 4th, which is two days after it was supposed to be shipped back to me.
So now I am willing to give the guy a benefit of the doubt. Obviously I am going to contact him, but first I wanted to ask some Americans here more familiar with USPS, would he be even able to pick it up after a month has passed? Or is it possible that it's just some mix up and "delivered" is just a unfortunate status shortcut for "returned to sender"?
Any help would be appreciated.
I have some trading cards of which I have a bunch that are too low in value to sell individually. I was thinking about doing a listing where, out of a set of 60 cards, I allow the buyer to pick 10 from the list of 60 that I include in the description, once they buy the item. I would state this very clearly in both the title and description that it is for 10 cards. I would do the "multiple variations within one listing," but that is not allowed in the USA for trading cards.
Is this an acceptable listing practice? I have been researching and I can't really find much about it. If so, is there any reason why I would not want to do it (something unscrupulous buyers could take advantage of, etc.
I'd appreciate any tips!
Can anyone tell me how to find a seller using their ebay username? I've tried the advanced search, then filtered by "find a member/seller, etc..." I've even searched via the sellers email address, and although ebay admits that the seller is indeed on the site, it won't give me ANY information because I haven't bought from this seller before. DUH!!! How can I buy from a Seller that I can't find??? Help!
When buyers buy multiple items and pays with multiple guest accounts, often times they are uniquely different accounts so their user ID doesn't match. I combine those items for shipping because their shipping address is an exact match. But ebay's sytem will not allow me to use the same tracking for different user IDs, thus giving me a shipping defect for "not uploading tracking" for the additional items purchased.
I've complained to ebay about this but they admit it to be a loop hole and unable to do anything about it. My question is once this becomes an issue regarding return or case, will ebay force refund them out immediately because technically the additional item never had tracking with it to being with?
Good evening, all!
Just wanted to get second opinion from folks with more experience on whether I'm asking too much.
The story is as follows: I bought a few items, and was presented by seller with a choice of delivery methods - one cheaper without tracking and one costlier with tracking. I picked more expensive delivery option due to my habit to watch how my parcels are moving across the world, let the seller know of my decision and paid accordingly. To be honest, I didn't asked seller specifically if he is willing to tell me tracking number, considering this being granted.
Today it is 7 days since I paid and 5 days since items were marked as shipped out, however I still got no reply from seller regarding parcel tracking number even though I've reminded him about it. So, what do you guys think, is it normal? If not, is there anything I could do about it within ebay rules more productive then just suck it up?
Thanks in advance
It is very hard to understand how to sell on ebay, for me, even though I have been doing it for three years. I always search ebay in my spare time and get very frustrated because other sellers with less feedback score than mine sell the same items that I do with many more volume and sales. What am I doing wrong? Why won't my bussiness really take off and make me weathy, like it is supposed to do? Other ebay members sell thousands and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, while my items, mostly, sit untouched gathering dust, can anyone suggest anything to make my sales really jump? thanks!
Any help would be grateful !!
May I have all your sugestion please
I have sent an item by priority mail from france to USA and I mention customer should recieve it within 3-7 days.

- anybody can suggest me what should I do next I already try to contact my customer but no reply back from her ?
-I have all the evidence that I already sent an item. will I get the money back by any chance?
Searched the forums, and can't find this exact question.
What is the best way to package a DVD for mailing? I ship via USPS.
So the choice is: Small Flat-Rate Box vs. Padded Flat-Rate Envelope.
Which is optimal, to prevent any kind of damage (bending/pressure/cracking) to the DVD cardboard slipcase and plastic casing? It's a 2-pack DVD set.
I thought Small Flat-Rate Box was made for DVDs, but it seems to be straining at the sides. It looks like there's a small "bulge" at the sides. Although, is it better to be absolutely "tight," to prevent damage?
If I use the Padded Flat-Rate Envelope, I suppose I'll have to put stiffeners in the envelope, or create a makeshift box to protect the DVD.
What do you do? Please be kind . . . I do realize this is persnickety. Just want this DVD to arrive in pristine condition. :-)
I sold a fairly expensive item last night and the buyer (who had just paid) asked me if I could send it to another, nearby address (which I think is probably his work address.)
I told him, sorry, no can do, it has to be to the address he has registered at paypal. I told him I could refund his money, and then he could change it, buy it again, etc.... (No reply from him on that.)
Is that the only way (unless I just feel lucky and want to risk losing the $$$ by sending it to the non-confirmed address ?)
Or can he change his ship-to address now, after the sale, thereby allowing me to send it to the new address and still be 'protected'?
iI have to block these type of buyers! I didn't and now I have someone that
bought a forty dollar item. They paid and I was about to send it and saw
that they have only one feedback. They tried to sell a video game and
didn't honor their sale. It was a video game. It was sold low and they
didn't respond at all according to their feedback from their buyer.
I looked them up and it's a teenager I found on Facebook. A male.
The address has a woman's name though. Not sure if I should
send with tracking of course or cancel the sale altogether.
This is a new one on me. Thanks for your thoughts!
Hello... Yesterday, 8 february 2016, at 08.54 AM, clock of Moldova, I paid for something but I don't know for what. I dont received any emails about this... What's happens? I know is not so much but I need to know for what I paid 1$? . Thank you an advance.
Thank you for any information you can provide. What it is, era, maker, etc.
Possibly victorian era. The top "finial-type knob" and plate are made of metal. Probably tin because the piece is very lightweight. The metal is a brass color with very ornate with flowers and scrolls. The knob has what looks like a "crest" design on both sides. The
plate" is attached with two very small tack nails; one on each end.
Peeking out from under the tin plate (at each end) is what looks like very old fragile doscolored paper.
The base is made out of wood.
My best guess is a lid of some kind but the wood is larger than the tin plate so a lid may be ruled out.
Thanks for looking!
i purchased an item with free shipping,when it came today,the postman made me pay for the shipping,the seller only paid 45 cents on it,i had to py the rest,what can be done?
I have selling limit as I am a new seller. I need to know, if I list an item in auction format, what happens when the bid reaches the selling limit?
My listings have been canceled due to listing violation. I've got a message in which I'm told the listings have been removed and selling limits have been placed on my account. There's no explanation for these listing violations and I have no idea what have I done wrong. Any advice?
Shiipping to Japan, tracking unavailable. How do I make sure I can confirm that the buyer received the package? Any ideas?
What do they mean and how do I do this.
Ocasionally(though recently qiete often ) i get this one buyer with 0 feedback from Boswana or another country in Africa who does not pay nor did he had such intentions..(do they just try their luck hoping i will send item without payment?) no communication form them eather
Id like to list my items without commitment to buy the item but rather straight payment on chekout or go fish)
But i cant seem to find that option? is this another privilage of premium account sellers?
We have a buyer who has requested a refund and opened a case concerning a CB radio. The item description explained the unknown condition as follows:
"This is from an estate of a person who was very involved with electronics and radio communications. This is right from his bench/desk that most of his equipment was used on. Please check our other listings for other equipment. We have not attempted to test any of it since we are not knowlegable in this area. I am not sure what some of the items even do. Everything is sold AS IS condition unknown. So far, if you look at our recent feedback, other electronic items from this estate have made our customers happy but this stuff is untested and AS IS. Please see all pictures. Larger pictures are at bottom of listing."
Buyer claims the item has a broken circuit board and we knew it. We, of course did not because we never test, try or open up an item we know nothing about. These circuit boards are inside the radio and one would need to open it up to look.
Is this worth the argument or should we do the refund? First one of these cases in about 17-18 years of Ebay selling from estates. Thanks for your opinions.
My item arrived postage due. The item was listed as having 4.38 shipping charge (which i was fine with and paid for at time of purchase in the purchase price) and when it came to the house, it had been shipped media mail.
The seller paid 3.22 for media mail, post office examined to make sure it was media mail and it was deemed to not have been media mail. The shipping charge should have been 7.95. I had to pay 4.75 if i wanted to accept delivery of my item or i could return it. since this was a birthday gift for someone else i did not want to deal with returning and starting over. Is there anything i can do in regards to my extra $$ being paid for delivery?
if I don't sell my item..do I have to pay the reserve fee?
I'd like to know the best way to issue a refund. I shipped some books via Media Mail. The only confirmation the tracking number shows is that it left Phoenix on 1/12. It hasn't arrived at the post office in La Honda, CA. I've visited my post office twice and once I was told that it was opened for inspection on 1/26 in California. Last week I was told to check with the PO in La Honda. I called La Honda and the buyer has been stopping by, it hasn't arrived there.
I did purchase insurance through ebay. I cannot file a claim until 2/11.
What is the best way for me to issue a refund to the buyer to cover myself. I will file a claim with ebay on 2/11.
Thanks for any guidance!
I would like to buy a boxset of DVD's but how do I know if the company is reputable and I won't be scammed.
I sold an item to someone with a PO Box for his address. I am shipping UPS and can't use that address. I emailed him twice to see if he had an alternate address I could ship to. No response after two weeks, so I finally tried to cancel the order and it says buyer has 10 days to respond. It is like wasting a whole month on one item
