Need help to identify Secessionist and or Art Nouveau. Sure it is European. A beautiful set that has been in my family. The pitcher has a small hairline that has stopped and is in the middle of it. The rest of the set are just fine. I researched and took a flying leap at a price because this is a rare set. Do the leaves tell you who made it? Any info appreciated

Some sellers are selling "Rainbow Rose" seeds. Rainbow roses aren't made from seeds. They're made by taking regular white roses and injecting them with dye. 

I haven't bid because I haven't fallen for it. I tried "Report Item" but could find no way on it to report that the item itself is a fraud. They don't even seem to have a category for that.rainbow_roses_by_surrender_the_booty-d4b40mg.jpg

Hi. I have what I think is the crank top to a Dazey or Sears Farm Master butter churn. I would like to ID and date it, it's not marked anywhere. Would the maker's name also tell me the age?


It's all metal except for the handle and paddles. The triangular red cover has a very Deco look. It would probably fit a jar opening 5.25" wide. It's 8.75" from the ends of the paddles to the flat top of the lid.


Any help would be appreciated.

MARCH 4, 2015:  As the third BETA test got underway recently on Ebay, once again my descriptions were hidden under a hyperlink, and once again sales have dropped because of it.  After submittiing my input by using the "Tell us what you think" link, the following morning my pages appeared normal, but, my view of ebay has no effect on what others see when accessing my listings.  I posted last month about this issue and have been scrambling to circumvent my falling sales.  In an effort to help my buyers find my descriptions, I will be including the following picture in each of my listings.  Also, I have changed most all my items to "New other," rather than "New," so the accompanying 1000-character description, beginning with, "Click the "See full item description" link for full details and warranty dates" will appear directly under the title in each listing.  I would also add,

another significant change I've noticed includes randomly-selected portions of my description visible under "Item description."  In such cases, I have no control over what portion of my description Ebay selects for display, nor can I alter it in any way.  However, the disclaimer stating "Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing" still appears at the top the description section of each listing.  Very frustrating indeed!  Any comments or suggestions on my efforts would be greatly appreciated.  And Kudos to all the fine Sellers out there!

I am really stuck on this one.

I'll be listing it on a fixed price venue and have no clue what price to set.

I had decided on asking 50 bucks til someone told me I'd be nuts to let it go that cheap.

This vase is 10.25" tall 5.25" wide on the base and the mouth.  The reserach I have done makes me think it is Japanese.  If you look at the photo of the base it looks like you can see the imprint of a mark from a sticker maybe?  Would the metal be nickel? What is the age?  Alos is there a name doe this shape vase?

Hello Collectors!


About a week ago I bought these two candlesticks very special.
I was told that they come from a nunnery presumably in Arezzo (Italy) recovered during the evacuation of the same convent.
Some of you can kindly give me some more news, unfortunately I could not find anything like it.


thanks and sorry for my bad English.

Greetings and I hope I chose the Right Group to aid me with this lovely bracelet. I have spent hours researching, and am only becoming MORE confused!
So counting on one of you to give me the Correct Info before I list this bracelet. I was told it is Lavender Purple Jade by the lady I bought it from. But on the other Jewelry boards, I was told it looks like Dyed Chalcedony? Faceted Rectangle Cut stone. So I did more research, and I agree it looks more like Chalcedony than Purple Jade. And I'm guessing the softer hued stone is "Mojave Blue"? See how fast I'm learning? :smileyhappy: I do believe it is Art Deco. Am going to take it to a jeweler for his opinion, but he's rarely open, so here I am! :smileyhappy: Any help Appreciated!! Thank you in advance! Jade Bracelet Boards 002.jpgJade Bracelet Boards 003.jpgJade Bracelet Boards 004.jpgJade Bracelet Boards 001.jpg

Hi All, I have a very interesting little piece of porcelain that I have been unable to identify. It is a little green and white pin or dresser tray that shows two dogs fighting or playing. It is a good quality piece. The green colored porcelain is actually green clay with a clear glaze. It has an incised mark on the bottom with what looks like an arm with a sword inside of a shield shape. It has the numbers 3734 and 190 incised into the clay. It is a sweet little piece and I hate to list it unidentified... If anybody has any information I would be very grateful.  Please see photos below. Thanks, D

Sorry for being so needy lately, my research isn't giving me any results.

I have this unmarked wide stretch bracelet, the elastic is a dingy white, rhinestones are both prong set and glued in.

The middle sections are a clear lucite, they look like a peach color in my pics but they are a thick, clear lucite and the greenish color on the top is a reflection.

Any thoughts as to age ?

Hoping for confirmation as well as addition information on this bracelet. It is marked Lind and and I think S14kt? So I am guessing heavy gold plated. From researching I came across information that state Lind is the same as Lindenwold? Was wonder if any one had and additional information on Lind Jewelry. So I think the stones are Labradorite from appearance? A lot of the Labradorite I has view look more blue these are more of a clear with blue flash.  Is there such a thing as good quality labradorite and if so any ideas what these would be considered based on the photos? Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Hi..Would this outfit be a Christening outfit or a church dress with matching jacket and hat or was this typically used for something else? Am I correct in estimating it is from the 40's to 50's? I also do not know how to describe the the design on the dress and front of the hat. The dress is organdy and the jacket and hat are also organdy lined with satin.Any help describing this set is appreciated.

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

Got this yesterday at a local thrift store because it was signed by what I figured is a actor or key person in the scene & because the print/photo has a cool look that doesn't come through here - it almost looked like a colored cell laid over a scene.


I can't figure out the signature - Lance Zulee? - can anyone help me?

Under the scene it has written by same person "Montana Blacks Gold" - I believe there is a 'S' after Black, but again, I can't understand this person's handwriting.

Thank you for any help.

 This is a new post put in the correct category.


I am in need of some help identifying this "Asian" jar. I have no knowledge of Asian porcelain. I have been researching this piece for some time on the net and have learned some things, but have become increasingly confused also. I only am confident of a few details, being that this is a jinger jar. It has red handpainted design under glaze and Polychrome decoration over glaze. Hoping someone out there can clear things up for me. First, I believe this is Japanese rather than Chinese? I have seen terms used like Imari, Wucai, Verti and many more names used to identify asian pieces that are quite the same as this one. I believe that the red underglaze decoration/design is a major key to "what it actually is, and may also hold the key to possible dating. Of corse, the markings on the rim and the enamel green overglaze "wing" mark on the bottom may help also. Found no marks on the net like them.  In a nut shell am hoping to find: The country of origin, what it is called: Imari, Wucai, etc. and a time period it was made.  Would be great to attribute it to an actual person as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have what appears to be some vintage anchor hocking orange juice glasses that are a little strange. They look like they are "inside out" as the decals are a bright orange and green on the inside of the glass but dark on the outside (I know a dishwasher can lighten them, but darken them?). I am wondering if they were in a fire and the outside decals absorbed some smoke or if they were some kind of factory mistake. The regular anchor hocking mark is not on the bottom; instead there is what looks like a laurel wreath with a semicircle of dots underneath. Can anyone help identify these glasses for me?

Can someone tell me what I have?  - It's not silver, right? More likely silverplate? - Even if it's not a ashtray, I believe with a nice glass ashtray set in it this piece would look great!

First...........I cannot at all find a contact number to calL; Ebay to resolve issues that are more complicated than their resolution center can handle.  No Seller customer service, and sellers are the backbone of Ebay.  


Second......All resolution favors the buyers, who in many cases are the biggest scammers and users on Ebay.  Why cant I leave NEGATIVE FEEDBACK for a non-paying bidder ????????  Why does Ebay even allow them to stay without sanctions????    They totally ruin the whole online auction experience .....


Third........If I sell something AS IS, WITH THE AUCTION marked NO RETURNS......If a buyer doesnt like that, DONT BUY !!!    But noooooo, EBAY FORCES a seller to take a return???  And the buyers always lie about some stupid aspect of the auction, and the truth is.......they just dont like what they bought????   BUYERS REMORSE...........So thats my fault????


Screw Ebay, I'm done paying high fee's, with no customer service, and no seller protections against (1) bid wonder buyers who have the maturity and integrity of a two year old.

I need help

I've heard some people say that if it's spelled with the "s" at the end it's not authentic but then I've seen some sell on ebay like that. I emailed the people at the Burberry company and they just told me to buy from their retail stores to be sure of authenticity so I would appreciate some help if possible. Thanks.

Is this Burberry's shirt authentic?

I recently set up a small business, using eBay to sell fashion accessories, such as costume jewelry and handbags.


My success has been hit or miss, mostly miss. I was able to sell the entire first lot of handbags over a two-month period by pretty much sacrificing all profits and taking a loss on a few items when you factor the eBay fee and shipping/handling.


I am trying it yet again with costume jewelry, but my experience has been less successful. I acquired them from a NYC wholesaler, they appeal to our fashion sense, but they aren't getting the love. Few viewers, and prices cut to the bone aren't attracting viewers or buyers in the auctions.


I'm somewhat limited in presenting information about the products becuase of what the wholesaler provides, so what I have in the following listing may not have all the information I need, but it's the best I can do.




Any suggestions with regard to keywords, listings -- what can I do to make this work? I've followed the tutorials, I've set up Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

Help Me Boost Sales!

I'm having issues trying to get an item to remain on eBay for sell.  As an example, here's one of the items that eBay just removed on my end:




I get the vacuous response of the following:


"Please review your listings for areas that can be improved. For example, make sure your listings have:
-a clear description
-great photos
-an accurate title"


I called eBay support and asked them "what am I doing wrong?"  The first lady found nothing wrong with the listing.  She transferred me to someone with listing and he basically recommended that I sell the item elsewhere.  He said I have stock photos (???) and that's the reason why it was pulled three times.  Any ways I have a clear description, proper category, UPC listing, front and back photos (from the iPhone 6+ camera.)


Did anyone ever have a problem similar to this?  I really want to sell items on eBay, but if my listings keep getting pulled for no reason whatsoever, I'm going to use Amazon instead...  I have great feedback and have sold many items before.  I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

A buyer wanted me to knock a large chunk of money off of an item I had GTC. I agreed to his price but said I would list it as a 3 day offer at that price so that others had a chance at it too.  The item weighs 26 pounds in the box and is oversize.  The guy writes back asking who will pay for shipping.  I ask him his zi[p hoping it will be close and I will pay shipping, instead it is the furthest point away still in the USA.  The guy keeps writing messages in the gtc listing.  I twice send him the number of the auction then say 'take this number xxxxx cut and paste it into ebay search field, message me from there and I will make you an offer.  I was prepared to take him up on his offer and give him free shipping when he nastily replies 'I do not know how to cut and paste, and gets meaner in the rest of the email.  I read his left for fb and he leaves negs and the buyers reply he is hostile. BBL for him.  Oh well maybe someone else will buy my widget with less problems.  


The best part was I don't cut and paste LOL

Are We Really Only Allowed One Store?

I was bidding (high bidder) and inquired to the seller as the reserve as I put a ( maximum) bid at twice my current high bid .. The seller replied that they would sell it to the highest bidder at the end of the auction.The auction ended at my original high bid and I inquired if the seller was going to invoice me or how to proceed (my max bid was still double of my winning bid) after a few days the seller replied that they were going to relist the item under second chance ? and was not going to honor the sale to the highest bidder..I could only speculate obviously it was a monetary reason So do I have any recourse through ebays T.O.S ? I have screenshots of the listing..my bids and the ebay based emails...I've just recently started purchasing items from "non corporate" sellers and this is very upsetting to me as I watched and followed the item for ten days..in which time I was actively bidding..Please some guidence from those more experianced ..Thank You in advance

i won an auction on 2/18. package was supposed to arrive on 2/25. i have been a buyer for 13 years, 100% FB, never left a bad FB for a seller.  seller has high rating and over 1000 sales. i bid on another auction tonight from the same seller,, but am now regretting it unless i get a resonse and tracking number for the overdue package. i haven't paid on the latest auction yet.

after the auction i called ebay help to see if they might have a tracking number on the overdue package. the first thing they told me was that the item i won showed up as relisted. I  wrote the seller again asking what was going on and please respond ASAP.  Nothing. And sure enough on my Ebay page it shows up with all my auction info and says it has been relisted too.

now what?  how long do i have before i cancel and ask for a refund.

package overdue...no response from seller.

I bought a cashmere sweater that was pre-owned. It was described as "mint condition," "looks new." It is in great condition wear-wise, as in no pilling, no holes, etc. However, it was dirty. There were bits of food and drink stuck to the sleeve and it was gray around the edges of the hem and cuffs. The seller offers returns, but I do like the sweater and was fairly sure there were no actual stains that wouldn't wash out, so I washed it. It came out beautifully. I did get what I paid for. My concern is that it was not as described. As a buyer, would you want to know that this seller is a bit dubious? What would you do?

Buyer being difficult!

On my selling account, ebay is hiding my descriptions! I have to click "see full description". How do I change this?

Selling question



I did not realize that there was shipping associated with the purchase of a purse, therefore, I would not have bought it or bid on it.  I also did not realize that the bidding was ready to close at at any minute.  Otherwise, I would have taken my bid back because I found another purse that I liked much better.  Is there anything E-bay can do to help me not get this purse?  COACH SHOULDER BAG CARLYLE TURNLOCK - BLACK NWT Ret $ 428.00 by

ebay makes deliveries to hotels?

I am leaving for a vacation and I have tens of items I need to sell.
Is there a way I can send them to ebay and they sell them when ordered? Is there another similar option?

Selling discussion

I won an Auction on 02-12-15 for a Miche purse shell with the attached handles. The payment cleared 2-14-15. I recieved a tracking 3 but the item never shipped. I waited and the opened a case with the Resolution Center on 2-21-15 and was informed that I had to wait until the 2-27-15 before any action could be taken. Now I just want  to know if it is fair to leave negative feedback. I don't want other buyers to go through the same thing but I am afraid the seller will retaliate and leave negative feedback for me, which I feel don't deserve. Opinions?


Mar. 1:
You opened a case
Hi. I did hear from the seller. It seems they missed place/sold part of the item. I agreed to still accept the item even though I was paying for something of lesser value than what I bid on. I then told them to ship the item and I see no response from them. This is not acceptable behavior from an Ebay seller.

Hello I need some help please.

I hope someone can help me. I sold an item and had to open a unpaid item case because buyer was unresponsive. The next day she wrote and told me she lost her credit card and just found it but after looking at the item again isn't sure she wants it anymore.  I told her I would cancel the transaction but I keep getting a message that says it can't be cancelled because there is a case open on that item.  I typed in a question on how to do it and the solution said go to resolution center click on item and cancel but still get the same message. Can anyone help me get this done? Thanks!

I got a message from ebay that if I sell a single item, I will get a $25 Ebay coupon. What do I do with it? Is it a scam

Selling discussion

I ordered a pair of jeans size 25, which is my usual size. Upon trying on the jeans, they did not go above my hips without having to force them. I decided not to force them so as not to damage the used item. I contacted the seller and asked for a return, I filed a return, and she did not answer until two days before being able to contact Ebay to step in. She will not accept the item because it was not "misrepresented". The seller did not state that the jeans were non-stretchable, which is why they didnt fit me. I offered to pay to ship the item back but she is refusing. WHAT DO I DO?

Rcvd mess. unauthorized user of buyer or bidder acct. today, this was shipped on 2/27/15. I just received a notice this evening from eBay that they had to cancel the bids and purchases on the buyer??????????


And, please note, that we're working with the account owner to prevent any additional unauthorized activity.

This was shipped, already.  They credited my fees? Who cares about the fees?  Why am I being informed, after the fact?


This is not showing delivered as of yet, and, I will be on the phone, with USPS, first thing.


However, the message says" we have made it easy, to relist your item, if it was removed." BUT, it is no longer available in search listings. 


What is going on, and what do I do now.  


Thanking you in advance...

I had to cancel a transaction with a buyer. The buyer clearly violated EBay rules by wanting to complete the transaction outside of EBay and also, asked for my phone number. When I told him this, he demanded the item to be sent right away. I didn't feel comfortable dealing with him as I know there are going to be issues.i have reported him. He never paid and I'm stuck waiting for him to respond and close the case so I can get my feed back. I'm frustrated that my invoice is charging me a $50 fee. How long do I have to wait to get the much needed money back? It's been since mid February.

Help! Paypal just put a hold on funds for an item that was shipped through the Global Shipping Program. Tracking clearly shows it was delivered to the address she provided. She opened a dispute for item not received on the same day tracking shows delivered.  Please tell me I'm covered for this. It's a $99 sale. She's claiming this:I did not receive the item. I believe this to be a scam. The item was relisted after I paid for it (I had two pairs of the same item). A shipper claims to have delivered it but the address provided was incorrect.(How so? I only shipped to the global shipper)  I believe this delivery to be falsified.(What??) Please provide a refund.


The Global Shipping Program claims to protect it's sellers:

You aren't responsible for item loss or damage that occurs after the item is forwarded by the US shipping center. Once an item has been forwarded by the US shipping center, you won't be responsible for refunding the buyer if an eBay Money Back Guarantee or PayPal Purchase Protection case is filed against you for one of the following reasons:
A buyer claims an item isn't received or

Starting an eBay Business question

I bought an item for 64.50 but when I go to checkout it comes up that I need to pay 75.00. Shipping was free. Why is it charging me more?

Payments discussion

a question. Am I suddenly doing things incorrectly, or has eBay changed even more than I thought it had. I sold a small lot of old international coins to a man in China. I specified the weight of the box and the dimensions and used First Class International as my mailing choice. The shipping cost came up as $12.75. He paid on 2/1/15 and I mailed. This AM (3/3/15) I got an email from him and this is what it said




"I do not understand. I charged you the true cost of sending by First Class International. It is the least expensive way to send to China". This afternoon I received another email



a lot of kind usa sellers even free shiping by regular mail.






Now I am happy that he gave me "OK" as a feedback. But I am really upset because although I've had no other foreign shipping complaints, I find myself doubting what I am doing. Is he correct? Maybe this was heavier than his other purchases?


And why oh why does eBay suggest that people offer "free shipping"? If it's a first class letter I can see it, but we do have to pay for the items. I just wish that every day there wasn't some new fee or new rule to remember. I thought that most of us were just one or two people selling....right now in order to build my business I would have to hire someone to help, which is an impossibility. Especially since between 1/4 and 1/3 of what I take in goes right back to eBay and PayPal.


I long for the good old days of eBay when things were much simpler and I made a lot more money.
