Hi all,


I have this hand painted round jar.  It has a pattern inside both bottom and lid.  There is a label but I cannot make out who it is.  Does anyone recognize this?  It measures 6" at the widest.


Thank you!

Silver goblets with stars id??

I have no idea what this large stone is in this Native American cuff bracelet. In hand it's a dark mottled red/brown/black with turquoise flecks. 

Does anyone recognize the artist mark ? I've looked in all the usual NA artist mark sites.

Thanks for any help.

I was hoping to get some help with this bowl. 

I've searched google and have only found a few examples with the lobster motif, some new cups/plates (obviously new) and

2 pieces in museums with very similar painting. It appears to have a good deal of age to it.

I've found many piece with the Oribe green "drip" glaze but none with this type of motif.

If anyone could help wtih a possible age range or any other ideas/info I would greatly appreciate the help.

Or even leads for more research.

Also it appears to be signed on the bottom, if anyone can decipher the artist that would be great!.

Japanese Antique? Oribe glaze lobster bowl



     I won an auction yesterday but have been unable to complete the checkout due to error while connecting to Paypal from checkout page. I have tried multiple things like - delete cahce/cookies , different browser etc but nothing seems to work .


I even contact Ebay customer support and looks like they dont have the slightest idea as to whats happening. From my own research I figured out that the issue could have been due to having different  email ID for paypal login than the one used for Ebay.  While this is not an issue with other global sites like Ebay US and Ebay germany (I have used both for purchases via PayPal) there seems to be problems with Ebay UK.






Any hellp to resolve this issue will be appreciated .

Identify Age of Gorham silver

I made a purchase yesterday and I received an e-mail mentioning that the item that was initially listed has been removed due to unauthorized third party access. I've already made the payment upon ordering.


Now that I'm trying to process a refund for the item, I am not really sure how to go about it now that the item has been removed and there's no way to chat live with anyone on eBay's support page.


Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.


In regards to the item that was removed:-

We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction.

If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Center to help resolve any problems you may encounter.

So do I wait now for the item or should I just raise a refund request?

Grrr... haven't been on these boards in a while.  Just lost my whole post because I can't for the life of me figure things out any more, let's try this again.  


I am looking for information on a set of bookends I recently found.  They seem to be in the style of Bradley & Hubbard, but bear no circular mark.  They measure about 5.5" high by 4" long by 2.5" wide, and weigh about 2.5 lbs each.  While they appear bronze, the bottom of one shows raw, ground cast iron.  


I have searched in vain for a while, using multiple keywords, but cannot find another set just like these anywhere online.  Does anyone recognize them?  Would be most grateful for any information as to maker, time frame produced, rarity, value, etc.  Would also welcome any gentle corrections as to any errors in etiquette I may have committed here; it would not let me preview my post so I don't know if my pics are OK or not.  Smiley Sad

Good afternoon eBay community


Question....do you believe it is reasonable for the seller to ship an item to the "buyers shipping address information" presented to them on the "Congratulations Your Item Sold" email sent to the seller from eBay? I received one address in the "Your item sold" email but the system contained another. I shipped to the address "Your item sold" address and wondering if it was reasonable to do that. A copy of the email I recieved is belwo.


Dear cmarlow,

You did it! Your item sold. Please ship this item to the buyer after your buyer pays. As soon as your buyer pays, print your eBay shipping label.

Complete one of the following:
  • Print a shipping label. Avoid a trip to the post office, print and pay for your label at home. Printing shipping labels on eBay also offers you reduced pricing on some shipping services, and when you print shipping labels on eBay, your tracking information is uploaded automatically.
  • Provide shipping and tracking information. When you upload tracking information to eBay, we'll send it to your buyer and let them know the item is on its way. This will save you time, and may result in fewer questions from buyers and higher detailed seller ratings.
  • Mark your item as shipped in My eBay. Do this, and we'll let your buyer know the item is on its way. This will save you time, and may result in fewer questions from buyers and higher detailed seller ratings.
You should always leave feedback for your buyer to encourage them to buy from you again.

Now, he don`t asnwer to me.

Good morning- I have looked for, in vain, information about  original signed Kathi Urbach dolls in SIGNED wooden display cases... these  are large, the beautiful gilt and shell adorned pagoda style  wooden boxes are 23 x 16, the dolls stand @ 13.5.  They have the signature emerald green eyes. Composed of fabric, with ( again) the signature tiny shell detailing. These are very rare on their own, but the beautiful black  shadow boxes are ...well..nowhere. I have tracked down a few smaller Urbach creations, but not with the display that was also made by and adorned by, ( and hand signed) by Kathi. I do not know how even to place any kind of value on them, nothing to compare them to that I can find. Help.Please. ( and yes, they need a clean, I am just too afraid to damage..)

Good morning- now that I finally have time to give to my items, yet another question...these are Kathi Urbach creations, vintage, 1940"s. I have found very little on her work, and nothing at all like this set. I have found precious few stand alone dolls, and zero dolls that are in beautiful wooden pagoda style shadow displays. They are hand signed, very, very detailed and vibrant, the boxes are well built and quite heavy, the dolls ( need a clean..) have the signature emerald green eyes, tiny shell detailing, the boxes are beautifully hand painted and adorned, large, boxes come in at 23x16, the sculptures at 13 1/2". The boxes are hand signed on the bottoms, also shell adorned. Highly detailed and I am certain, pain staking in their construction. I need some information help, legwork, to try to value roughly, even 1 comp wold help, assuming it's apples to apples.  Regards V76IMG_4459.JPGIMG_4462.JPGIMG_4461.JPGIMG_4460.JPGIMG_4458.JPG

Hi I am needing help from the ebay biard members to identify this pottery piece. It does have a marking on the bottom. I beleive this is a incense burner or something of that nature. It has that personality in the face of some of picasso work, though not a picasso, lol. Just remonds me of his work. The pottery piece is around 8 inches tall. I am hoping someone can maybe help with the marking or artist this may be attributed to. any help is apreciated.

Payments question

Found this large painting signed Lee Reynolds & while researching it I found that most Lee Reynolds paintings were actually done by his students from Van Guard Studio who used his name on their finished products.

I read that one way you could usually tell a Van Guard was that they had 2 sets of 6 numbers on the back of the paintings. - Mine has a 6 digit number on one side (132642), but the other number is only a three digit number & it has the letter R in front of it (R413).


Is the R for Reynolds and is this a real Reynolds painting?


I appreciate any help.

New message from: quantech (1,346Red Star)
Second request. I would like to ask one more time to correct the negative feedback you have left on this working item. I take feedback seriously.
You want to save money, but can't fix things yourself, and depend on some anonymous "service technician"... who claims the LED panel issue you have that is attached to my part...claims My part is bad. Is this person GE certified? I don't think so...in fact I am certain.

Sorry, I have witnesses to saw the part working before disassembly. An LED issue like you are having is connector related, not due to my part.

If you take no further action, then, you can a LIBEL law suit will be files in the court of Washington County, Iowa, against your unsupported slanderous posting on an electronic forum, to protect my integrity and business credentials.

YOU will have to provide PROOF of your statement, in a Court of Law, not to eBay, not to me.

Can someone tell me how old this plant stand is? I thought it was earlier when I saw tongue in groove work, until I saw the slot screw. 

But it also has chinese characters written inside - to help the person putting it together remember what piece goes with what - which you don't see anymore.

I'm guessing the 40's - 50's but hoping older!

Good morning-  this piece is not marked, however I am certain it can be attributed to Dan Kasoff, founder of Florenza..many of his early pieces were unsigned. I know from my research it can be verified by his son Larry Kasoff, but I cannot seem to locate any information on how to do this. I have reached out to a seller on a site ( that shall remain unnamed...I was at my wits end..) that has this information, though is unwilling to share it with me...Dan Kasoff made all sorts of whimsical pieces, laughing Buddha as well. This Devil face is quite...unique, and the metal work is BEAUTIFUL. The small stones/pastes that were not secured by prongs, ( like the remaining green stones) have been lost...but the money shot is the unmistakable series of faces. I asked a question on another board, which is (Thank you!) how I got as far as I have...  Help please, this is becoming my white whale....  Regards, V76   Sorry about the focus issues...IMG_4448.JPGIMG_4439.JPGIMG_4443.JPG

Buying & Selling Basics question

Just thought this thread might be fun to share some of our favorite SATURDAY childhood memories.


I loved it when I could spend a Saturday morning watching cartoons.

They had the best cartoons in the 60's and Saturday mornings were cartoon marathons.

Some of my favorites were the Flintstones, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Road Runner

and I always wanted to live in a Jetsons world, LOL, still do.

Back then, it was ok to eat sugary cereals like my fav, Cocoa Puffs. Heart

If I wasn't watching cartoons,I was out grocery shopping with my parents which

I really didn't like. But I did like going to the bakery and the meat market.

Both were always crowded and you had to take a number and wait, wait, wait.

I'll never forget the meat market had saw dust on the floor and the bakery

smelled like heaven. I usually saw a classmate or neighbor at one of these

stores and there was always the sound of happy chatter all around you.


Well, that's a bit of my fav Saturday memories, so let's hear yours.

After that i wanted to buy the same item this time as a gift for my friend so tried to buy it (*same account) but when i choose paypal as the method to pay it with and try to login using the popup it show an error 70407. My account is fine cause i have the money which i got back from the cancelation and which is the same amount cause its the same item.


Tried a dozen of times but cant get it to work. Why does this happen?? Please help !


p.s. : Do i need to confirm the cancelation of the item ?The message from ebay cited  as above and there was any accept or decline option ...

         Also i found out that i cant buy anything at all not just this item.

Is anyone selling anything?

So I just had my first experience with an immoral buyer. Asking for a refund on a digital item he will get to keep along with his money. I sold a game code, and yes I know the whole thing about game codes here so no lectures please, I am ok with the risks, all of my buyers have been honest, except this one. My question is, in my case, this person opened a case on PayPal saying this was an unauthorized purchase. In this case, why should I refund? Why do I need proof in the form of a tracking number? What does that have to do with anything? She's in my list under items sold, how is that not proof enough that she authorized the purchase?


Edit: She opened the case on PayPal, not eBay, well the email was from PayPal.

Immoral buyer

I am absolutely dumbfounded on they way EBay supports it's seller.  I missed the quantity line when copying a sellable item.  I sold one extra than what I had in stock.  I immediately (within 1 hour) refunded and messaged the buyer with my apologies.  Several days go by...I get negative feedback... "Paid for these turtle beach only to find out they were out if stock days later".  DAYS LATER...he wrote. A complete lie. How is it my fault he didn't read his email?  Per Ebay, He can leave any opinion he wants....even if it's a lie.  My only recourse is to reply to his feedback and/or  ask him to remove it.  Ebay would not remove it.  It's no wonder so many people I have spoken with refuses to use ebay anymore.


I have two selling accounts with approximately 14k in sales in 4 months and am seriously contemplating closing them and moving on.  Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing?  Is there an alternative selling market any better?



Selling discussion

Aug 26, 2015 1:15:18 PM PT

Ebay is absolutely horrible for the Seller

Recently I read that the Previous CEO stated that Ebay never intended to have this many sellers with the TRS rating. Every change Ebay makes is appears to make things better for the buyer but also to lower the number of TRS qualified sellers. They need and want that 20% discount back and rather than just come out and eliminate the program, which would openly make them look bad, they make life hell on those that still manage to qualify for it and blame the seller for not being "up to" the new TRS standards. Each time Ebay says something is for informational purposes only, once they determine that it can be used to lower the number of TRS qualified sellers, it suddenly becomes a "new part" of the qualifying factors for attaining and maintaining your TRS status. I recently received a defect for shipping time although I mailed it the next business day the buyer did not receive it for 10 days and left me a 1 DSR although I also received a glowing feedback. It took a couple of calls to CS to finally get that one removed, but I finally got a CSR who looked at my history, my email to the person asking why I had gotten the low DSR and requesting he contact ebay to have it changed.  Naturally the buyer did not respond to the email and I have since blocked him from future purchases.


Now a couple of days later i suddenly have another defect on my account, after going almost a year with none (shortly after posting on these boards for the first time complaining about the defects for the slow USPS shipping, I am beginning to see why so many use alternative names on here). This one is for cancelling an order on a customer. Technically, I am guilty of this because I did refund his payment after I discovered I mailed his purchase to a different customer in error. I contacted the buyer and he understood and said to go ahead and refund the money but when I got the item back from the other buyer to let him know and we would finalize the deal. No contact was made with ebay regarding this and the item is still on my awaiting payment listing. Yet ebay gave me a defect because I refunded the person his money, period. I contacted CS and supposedly I will be able to have the defect removed once I send the item to him and prove delivery, although I am sure I will wind up with a defect for not shipping within 1 business day of cleared payment..


Again, no complaint was filed by the customer, I did not file for a FVF refund and I did not cancel the order, but ebay states that any refund through PayPal is considered a cancellation of the order by the seller regardless of the reason for the refund. So now according to this new ruling,  even if the buyer requests a refund prior to shipment and you agree to it and the buyer is happy, ebay will still give you a defect until you can at least prove shipment but preferably delivery (allowing for refunds due to lost in the mail, which I have had happen). Now how is this policy anything other than ebay trying to give defects to the seller?  They are going through payment records and filing defects against the seller even if the buyer wants to have the item cancelled.  There was no contact made with ebay regarding this issue by the buyer or myself, nor did I file for a FVF refund.  Am I missing something in how I am interpreting things or is this opening a whole new can of worms for seller defects??

I have finally found a nice item to sell, sadly it becomes slightly cracked by usps poor handling 50% of the time, there is no amount of bubble wrap that will keep this item from cracking, sadly the buyer doesn't know there is an easy fix available and youtube videos on how to fix it, that take 5 mins., Anyway, how do i get buyers to send me a message opposed to opening a request for return? Is there a way to manipulate the post sale page to get them corraled to sending a message and away from "return an item"  in the my ebay seciton?

I've finally been bitten by a common bug

They gave a lowball offer 65% less than my asking price on a higher priced item.

I checked their feedback left for others...one of which was a negative calling the seller unethical and to beware...


Should I tell them why I blocked them or just let them forever wonder?



Selling discussion

Aug 27, 2015 6:23:08 PM PT

Buyer wants to know why I blocked them

I wanted to get some feedback from everyone regarding a recent interaction I had with a seller of a used snowboard:

1) The Buy it now price was $800 (Burton Mystery in case you are curious what board costs that much).

2) I offered $600. I fully expected an initial counter of $750ish, with a final price around $725 (plus shipping). There (obviously) wasn't an automated rejection to my offer. 

3) Less than a few hours later, the Seller counter offers with..... $800. 

4) I contacted eBay to see what the policy was regarding counter-offers by Sellers in relation to the Buy it Now price. 

5) By phone, eBay says that they have no policy, and the Sellers are free to counter with whatever price they wish equal to or less than than the Buy it now price.

6) eBay encouraged me to contact the seller to give them "the benefit of the doubt" to make sure that the counter offer was "not a mistake". I knew it wasn't since the seller had multiple best offer transactions in the past. 

7) Seller confirms that they thought my offer was too low and so they countered with the buy it now price. 


 My question are these:


1) Since we are only allowed 3 offer/counter-offers, doesn't the seller essentially game the system and eliminate one opportunity for the buyer to lower the price, by countering with the Buy it now price? 

2) Was the eBay representative wrong about eBay policy?

3) If indeed the representative was correct about eBay's policy, should eBay revise this policy so that Buyer counteroffers must be less than the Buy it now price? I realize that the buyer could still counter (using my example) $799 and still effectively eliminate 1/3 of the offers, but eBay is meant to be a free market exercise.


Thanks for your thoughts, critique and advice.

I've bought books on ebay for years, with few problems, other than the occasional poor packaging. A book shipped in a paper envelope probably won't arrive unscathed. In the past month though, I've had three experiences with three different sellers, of buying books described as HARDCOVER, only to get paperback. Sellers were fine with making refunds, but why is this happening? One seller blamed eBay listing policies, which I don't understand. I suppose that if you list hundreds of books, it isn't possible to check the description all the time, especially if you're just copying and pasting an original description from a publisher into your listing, but you can't check the listing title? If I see HARDCOVER / TRADE CLOTH and PAPERBACK, both in the description (and you do see this), a bell goes off, but if I see HARDCOVER / TRADE CLOTH in the description AND in the big lettered listing title itself, why should I think otherwise, or have to contact a seller to make sure this is the case? Thanks.

I'm a little confused about ebay's refund/return system.


I recently purchased a limited edition doll from a seller for $200.  These limited edition dolls come displayed in their own box with a plastic window cover inside so you can see the doll.  The pictures of the doll and the box showed them in great condition.  However, when I recieved the item, the window cover was cracked and dented in several places.  I contacted the seller and sent them pictures showing the damages.  The seller had a "no returns" policy which I was okay with.  I didn't necessarily want to return the doll, I just wanted to be compensated for the damages.  The seller refused to even discuss a partial refund since he claimed he shipped it in "perfect" condition and the responsibility fell to the postal service.


The seller was actually the one that opened a dispute with ebay and they decided in my favor by forcing a full refund on the seller's part.  (Not at all what I initially wanted.)  In the email I receieved from ebay, they said that they had fully refunded my purchase and that I should have the item available for the mail carrier to inspect.  That was over a week ago.  I've receieved the full refund but I have yet to hear from either the seller or the postal service about taking the doll back.


I'm just really confused about what's going on with the item.  Apparently after ebay had decided in my favor, the seller turned around and filed a claim with the postal service for the damages.  Is that claim what's holding up the return process or is ebay mailing me a return slip?  Or am I the one that needs to contact the postal service to have the doll shipped back?

I have proof of mailing receipt from the post office and sent it to the address the seller provided me. I did everything eBay instructed.
