I have a heavy bronze vase that has an inscription on the inside bottom, but I am not sure if it is of Chinese or Japanese origin to even begin to identify it. Any help with it will be greatly appreciated! Thank you. Katie
thank you in advance for any help. Marigold bowl 5 3/4" x 3 1/2". I don't know what color the other one is the bottom looks cobalt blue to me. 6 1/2" x 2 3/4".
I obtained at an estate auction a large set of matching barware: champagnes in 2 sizes and old fashioned glasses. I have struck out searching to ID; anyone recognize them? (I am guessing they are 1970s but could be totally wrong). Thanks to all of you who read this!

Good afternoon everyone.
This has me stumped but learn everyday I think the pin and clasp has been replaced but the brooch is silver I think. This belongs to a older gentleman and his wife passed and I am trying to help him sell some things to make some $$ for him. Any info is appreciated as I google and get all kinds of things mainly cameos. It has some damage one corner is chipped other is cracked and 3 stones missing but I think I have some to replace them. With that being said I still like it but that doesnt matter think it is worth listing with the damage? There is no marks on it I cleaned it a little but found nothing
How old would you say it is or isn't TYVM
Time to get 'er in gear
Hello again! I have some wonderful old jewelry lately, so come here for H E L P! I belive this is a genuine JET Victorian Brooch. The long pin bar and simple c clasp tell me it's possibly 1800's? Is this a Mourning Pin? And are those marcasite beads? It almost looks like buttons made into a brooch? And there is repair on the back. Very lightweight piece. What is French Jet, by the way? And is this worth listing? So confusing!
i picked up this nifty Boucher 6748 bracelet today, gold tone with some of the raised areas looking silvery. I found one at a non-ebay site and they say it is gold plated but show no mark.
The silvery areas really do look like loss to the gold plate so I can believe it is plated, just wanted to make sure before I list it.
Ok, so this is a nice long strand of what feels like glass beads (tap like glass, moderate weight and cold to touch) individually knotted, no clasp. The color reminds me of butter. I've found what they call lemon jade, but nothing else has come close. Any ideas on the beads? For some reason, I get the vibe that these are not run of the mill...but wthdik? TIA!!!

Again, here are the photos for the one vase with the blue under glass and the graduated top/edge. No mark on the bottom and 3 mold marks. This one is 11" at it highest point. Thanks again in advance!
Can anyone give me some insight on what this is? It's intended purpose and an estimate on age, etc. It is 34 inches long and 13 inches wide.
Thanks in advance. My crackle glass resources are limited. I went through Weitmans' Book 2 with no luck and also the Blenko Project website. For all I know it's cheap Mexican glass -- I seem to have no clue about the difference between that and nice American crackle -- but, well, I'd like to know anyway. It's 8 1/4" tall with an unpolished pontil.
Hello P&G forums, I see tons of cut glass and this one caught my eye. I would like to properly ID it before listing if possible. Is this ABP glass? It doesn't have the sawtooth edge that I usually see. I really wish there was a makers mark, but sadly there are only some numbers. I would like help with the age/pattern/maker if possible. Thanks

I am looking to sell the following art on ebay. I am not sure what the value and exactly what it is.
Are these wedding cake beads and are they Murano glass or Venetian glass? Just so I know how do you tell the difference? Is the clasp missing a piece or does it just slip in? I picked them up at auction last night for 10.00 and thought they were pretty.
This board helped me with this artist's name some time ago & with that help I was able to sell the painting. But now I've come across 5 more of her (?) paintings in a storage auction I won & I can't remember the name! And I can't make it out on the painting.
I'd appreciate any help.

I'd like to replace the plastic ends and make them perfect again before selling them. Do these plastic ends have a name, because knowing what they are called would help me find them. And if anyone could steer me in the right direction to look for them that would be really great. I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm a dumb guy who knows almost nothing about CSA.

I was told this is an old jewelrs table...that is the only info I got. Does anyone recognize this as anything other than that or have any history? It is 30 inches high and 24 by 14 inches on top.
I don't have very much information at all on this. I believe it is sterling & copper pieces glued on to a reverse painted glass. Signed and I'm guessing titled. I believe it could be from Mexico and possibly a monastery connection? Any info appreciated.

I have this Lovely Patsy doll that was not cut properly. I have seen that they normally do not sell for much money, but I was wondering if there might be more value to a collector with a manufactor defect?

Hey Rick... for some reason, I don't see that tab or option on my end. Since the case is already closed, the only option it gives me is to relist the item, but I can't see where I can void it? Let me know... I'd be glad to help, I just can't see the option.
Poppies? Did someone say Poppies?
To show scale, I have placed a fireking mug beside the sugar jar. The sugar is unmarked. I have looked high and low and can't seem to find another one to compare this too. Any help appreciated.
this is a porcelain dish , with African violets painted on it it has a sig, Van tine and on the back it has a personal note, 1961 Painted for Connie something Martha Van tine It is approx, 51/2 inch in dia,
This looks like something that may have been painted at an artisans fair or something, Or like they do at bush gardens with capodimonte, they will make something while you are there and pick up later and the artist signs it, and personalizes it,
Thank you all for looking and those who have answers, or comments

Happy Memorial Day!
I purchased a camera lens and the wrong lens was sent. I requested a return but eBay closed the case saying that the seller did not offer refunds. Clearly the wrong lens was sent, I verified this with the local camera shop. This was advertised as a Nikon mount Sigma lens but is a Sony mount lens. I took pictures of the lens on a Sony camera ans sent them to the seller. Still refuses to refund. Seller says in communication that "If this had been our mistake we would gladly issue a refund for the item and for shipping." Hate to resort to Negative Feedback. Impossible to communicate with eBay once a case is closed.
This is the first time I've picked up glass with this optic. It looks like a fishscale to me, and has a dot or bullseye in the middle. You can feel the fischscale on the outside, although not as well as on the inside. I'm trying to search online to get some ideas of possible maker, era, how to describe, etc. I'm coming up empty. How would you describe this? Any thoughts on how to search? Possible makers?
Any and all help is appreciated! I'm lost on this one.
any ideal is this a fish weathervane. i see a small hole on the fish under the bottor close to the tail. the hole is not in the middle so i was wonder is this a weathervane. thanks
How many people have had the experience of a bait and switch wit an Italian company selling Darious vertical wind turbines? I won a bid on eBay for a complete wind turbine and was sent the blades and aluminum struts missing the actual generator which makes the wind turbine work. I sent photos to the company of the item I bid on and the Item I received and they told me that I had purchase something totally different. My correspondence with the company went back and fourth. When I finally tried to get eBay to help me they refused to do anything about my dispute. I now am the proud Owner of a wind turbine that doesn't produce energy. Has anyone else had this problem? Below is what I was suposed to have purchased. The second photo is what I received.
This vase is 10 1/4 inches in height. It has a textured, white iridescent finish applied to the outside. Kind of feels gritty like sandpaper. There is a pontil scar on bottom and it is ground flat around the outside edge of the bottom.
The closest I could find were a few vases identified as Poschinger that were really close in shape but none finished like mine. The only vases I could find with a similar finish were Murano vases with a Scavo or Corroso finish but I don't think the shape of mine is right for a Murano piece.
Any help with age, origin, maker or key descriptive words would be great. Thanks!
These bottles appear to be cased, but the inside is fairly thin, more like white satin enamel painted inside than an actual glass layer. Would you describe this as cased, or as something else?
Any thoughts on origins or maker? In my searches, I'm coming up with results all over the place. I thought they were pretty. And my first thought was Victorian. But now I'm wondering if they're Czech.
Thank you in advance.
Hi i dont know if someone has noticed some changes on the GSP, for example, there are things that i used to buy with that program, bought it, and suddently this week i cant order anything thats more than 199usd using the gsp, has there been any change?? my country is El Salvador.
the item says is on the global shipping program, but when i try to buy it, gives me this message, and in this case i already bought one of these lights abt 3 weeks ago and all went just fine. and one more change is that everything is being shipped over DHL which was not like this before used to be shipped with other courrier.
I have had this piece for a while, and I can't really settle on what it is. I am guessing it is some sort of pendant. It has prong set purple stones. It measures 1 2/3" long and it is heavy. It has two marks on the back-one on each side. I can make out 925 on one side, (it does test out as sterling silver) and three other marks on the other side.
Hoping someone out there recognizes this piece and can tell me what it is and who made it.
Thank you in advance for your help and advice!
As all of you know, eBay has updated their policies in an extreme way. I feel that it has made it much more difficult and expensive for individual sellers now. (I think they are trying to make eBay more like Amazon, with things for sale from big vendors and people who do eBay stores as a living, but that's a different discussion for a different day.) I am trying to find another website to start selling on that is very user-friendly for sellers, without huge fees and selling limits. I have been looking at Bonanza, but am having a bit of difficulty understanding it. Does anyone have any feedback about other auction websites (besides Etsy) to sell on that won't break the bank? I just can't afford to sell on eBay now. (Not willing to pay for a store subscription on eBay, not willing to risk paying to list not knowing if something will sell or not - you can't always guarantee someone looking for that specific item is going to be online at that specific time.) I need the extra income and Ebay used to be really great for that, but cutting my free listings by 60% and getting rid of my ability to relist without paying really hurts my wallet. Any ideas, ya'll?
A buyer bid on my auction for a not-working for part only lot of two laptops. I checked the buyers feedback and he left a neg and recieved a refund from ebay for another seller who sold a similar item. I looked at that itemsauction and I can't see how he could have misrepresented it, it was an old noteboo that doesn't work sold for parts only and clearly stated so in the very brief description he had with very few detales other than that. Am I allowed to or justified in cancelling this buyers bid? It looks like that is the only neg he ever left and it's the only time he bought something for prts only. Everything else he purchases is new stuff. He also sells.
My inclination is to not cancel his bid unless he wins. I don't want to go through a return drama for this stuff.
I have a US buyer who won an auction a month ago. After they won the auction they contacted me and said that "for security reasons" they couldn't pay through Paypal and they asked me to cancel the transaction. So I issued the "buyer requested" cancellation and they approved it. Then I archived the transaction, relisted the item and forgot about it.
This morning I noticed an email from Paypal that said I have an eCheck payment that cleared. Since I didn't have any items awaiting a eCheck I took a closer look. I confirmed that my Paypal account has the money. And I confirmed that the payment is for this cancelled Ebay transaction. Ebay doesn't show that the buyer has paid but when un-archived the transaction went into the "Awaiting Shipment" folder.
I sent the buyer a note in Ebay asking them to confirm that they made the payment and haven't gotten a response.
The buyer is in the US, has 4500 feedback and 400 transactions in the last month. So they are very active. He seems like a great customer. But I don't understand why Ebay would allow a buyer to pay for a cancelled transaction and I'm concerned that if I ship the item the buyer will request a refund through Paypal and get their money back because the trasaction is cancelled.
So I'm thinking about refunding the buyers money and asking them to buy the item again.
I purchased this item from sellers webpage and saw she also had it listed here on ebay. This is the actual purse I already purchased, item number is 161697122967. Any help authenticating this item is very much appreciated, thank you! It does have the YKK on the zipper.
Used to be 5 cents. Is it 10 cents now?
I would like to report a return abuse. And, would like to do that without calling CS.
Have seen it before, but not now. Has it been moved?
Thanks for the help,

Hi everyone, please I need help.
I bid on a tablet, but after that I realized that the seller only have 1 feedback and only one item on sale. This seems strange for me so I sent a message to the seller and asked him to decline or delete my bid.
He is asking me to pay. What should I do? How do I report this?
I recently won a bid of a quite expensive camera on ebay. The seller said he was on a business trip so he gave me a incorrect tracking number which has been sent to another guy in my city. The seller said he's going to send me the camera later, but it's been a week though. I didn't recieved any package even a reply from the seller. I've got all the contact record with the seller and tracking info detail from UPS to prove the package hasn't been sent to my personal address.(not even from the seller.) Could anybody help me getting the money back? I tried to do the online service process on ebay but it won't give me an option that fits my situation!!!
Just need to know if this is real or fake.Thanks in advance.
Long story short, I auctioned off a laptop several days ago. The buyer then informed me that 2 keys on the keyboard were not working properly. I immediately assumed this to be a software issue as I just factory reset 30 minutes before I shipped the computer (it's common for keys not to work properly after a factory reset), and at that point everything was functioning fine. The buyer then links me to a keyboard replacement unit and then says he doesn't know how much the repair would cost, but wants a $115 partial refund for both the item and the repair cost. told him just to ask for a full refund because it would be too much of a hassle on both of our parts and that I'd need a receipt or quote or something. Also, I do feel that such an issue shouldn't call for such a costly repair or even need the repair at all. He has yet to respond since I told him to request a full refund. Red flag?
The funds from the transaction just became available this morning. How long does he have to request a refund/file a case under the "item inaccurately described" clause (that's what he's calling it). I really just don't want this money to be tied up any longer. If it's a long window of time, I obviously won't be able to spend any of that money until the time passes. I'd rather just get the laptop back, fix the problem (if there is any), and then re-sell it. And does this sound like a scam? He did actually send me a video of the problem, but it wasn't that clear in terms of quality. We're in contact via MMS, email, and eBay, so he definitely got my message.
A buyer accidentally purchased an item from me twice, but only wanted one and so I wanted to cancel the second purchase. The buyer is not too familiar with ebay (hence the double purchase) and so I aked them to accept the cancellation request but they are unsure of how to do so. Is there any other way around this? Can I cancel my "cancelation request" and do an unpaid item case instead? Just want my final value fee credit back.
I listed a laptop for sale last month and someone bought it but then backed out and said he couldn't because of a family emergency. So I cancled it and relisted it. My invoice says I owe $15 but it does not give me any detials on why I owe that?
I would like to find the age of this Benrus watch and an approximate value for it.
I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I bought an item off of a guest account on Ebay and I received an email saying it'd be here on Friday and it's Saturday morning. I have not recieved my Item. I can not track the item for some reason, but I do have the tracking number. If anyone could please help Id be grateful.
In April, I changed my store level from Anchor to Premium. When will eBay reflect this in my monthly selling limits? I am not trying to increase my selling limits. I would like the limits to reflect a Premium store instread of continuing with the limits of an Anchor store. An Anchor store states this, "You can sell up to 2,500 items or up to $21,000.00 per month, whichever comes first." A Premium store has a maximum number of items as 500 per month and the amount per month is whatever it is. This is what I want to be reflected in my Account Statistics for the Premium level. Does anyone know how long this usually takes?
Ebay will not help and seller: celldebloke stole my IMEI and use another smartphone, now my imei is blacklisted. Ebay does not help, the seller has several negative feedbacks and Ebay does nothing. Someone can give me a direct mail to communicate with Ebay.
I purchased a sign from a seller and all went well. I gave the sign to a friend of mine to repaint. I think she has kept my sign and substitued a different board that she painted to look like what I asked her to paint for me. Ebay has the listing from last year of the sign I purchased but the picture has been taken down. I see that some pictures of past purchases have been taken down and some not. How can I get that picture back so I can see if my friend did what I suspect she has done? Thank you anyone who can answer this question.
Is it common for sellers not to automatically contact a buyer after a sale? I haven't used ebay in years, but it used to be when won an auction and paid for my item I would get and email from the seller thanking me for buying the item & acknowleding my payment even if they hadn't shipped it yet. I recently bought & paid for items for items from two different sellers. It's been more than 48 hours and I haven't heard from either of them. I assume I'll get a notice from PayPal when the items ship. I realize I could contact the seller through ebay, but it just seems odd to me to for the seller not to acknowledge the buyer/transaction.
Is this a misuse of ebay policy? Last year I listed and sold rubber crafting stamps to a buyer. She didn't pay for many items - about 10 of them. I blocked her after the case closed without payment. Now she has bid again (under a new buyer account) on many stamps and has an excuse (much like last time) to not pay for the items within my selling guidelines which are clearly in my listings. How would you handle this situation? It seems to me like she got in trouble with her other account so she started another, causing me to deal with her again. Can I cancel her order and just not deal with her? Will I be in trouble for that?
I have a brand new without tags paor of crocs for a toddler girl I picked up. Unfortunately, there is no identifying size. There is the number 24 on the bottom of the Croc and it measures 6 inches by 2.5 inches. Does anyone have any idea what shoe size I should advertise?
I'm selling a computer, which is fairly bulky to ship, and I've just noticed that the shipping cost given is very low. When I looked at my listing I found ebay had calculated shipping based on a much lighter weight, which has given an artificially low shipping price. I don't seem to be able to revise the listing other than to add an extra note in the text box.
Does anybody know if it's actually possible to revise the shipping information on an active listing?
Are we allowed to post items for sale on Ebay and also on another company's site at the same time? I have always cancelled my Ebay listing when placing that item on another website, but now I wonder if this is necessary. Thanks in advance for your help.
I won an item for 15 cents and when I checked the seller's name I noticed that the item I won was the only one that was listed. They also have 0 feedback. Am I safe to pay for it? Is there anyway they can get my information (paypal account or bank account)or am I just being paranoid for no reason? Any replies will be greatly appreciated Thanks
SELLING FEES. BEEN LISTING FOR 10 YEARS NOW EBAY WANT TO LIMIT TO 20 PER MONTH FREE INSERTIONS. LAST MONTH I LISTED 35 ITEMS WITH OUT A FEE. WHY NOW.
Hello! Thank you all in advance for your help.
So, I bought this for 50 cents because its quite the nice piece I thought.
Looks to be a patent, Blue prints, or something along those lines to a farming tool.. ??
Looks like it reads Joh Larslou but I dont quite know. Might not even be American.
Perhaps late 1700's or 1800's?
I had an item sell and the buyer did not pay. I cancelled the order but when cancelling I put the reason as "the buyer wanted to cancel" Is it possible to "uncancel" the transaction so that I may either open an unpaid case or cancel with another reason which will get me my credit faster? Currently, I cannot do anything with the transaction as I believe the buyer must confirm the cancellation. Seeing that the buyer was not agreeable to the terms, I dont' even expect him/her to respond to my request to confirm the cancellation. What are my options?
The reason for this question is that I am going to be billed the ebay fees for an item that sold but wasn't paid for but I cannot cancel either.
there are two situations i have now related. if i give a partial refund for a sold item will the fees for that item be credited? And, i sold two inexpesive items to the same buyer and found that i can put both items in the same small flat rate box. he paid for separate shipping so i refunded him 5 from the sale for this combined shipping. mind you the buyer did not ask for combined shipping, and was very thankful for the 5 dollar refund. i did not see the fee for that shipping removed in this case 50 cents. i have another one pending where the box was trashed; it is my first 'arrived' damaged. so if i give a partial refund will i still pay the full fee, (shipping and item)? the shipping was more than the item selling price so i am a bit concerned.
thanx for your help,
after i sold my items, I received a letter from the buyer in my email. But I can't see any payment in my paypal account
