Glassies, need Id for pitcher, EAPG I think.

Hello Folks,

I acquired this punch bowl several days ago and I can't figure out the pattern name or maker.  It measures about 14 1/2" in diameter and stands approximately 7" tall.  It has a panelled design with a scalloped rim.  It was likely made to sit on a stand and has a base approximately 5 7/8" wide.

When I purchased the bowl, the previous owner said it was made by Heisey.  The bowl came with a large lot of Heisey Queen Ann (#1509) punch cups.  The cups are marked with the Heisey diamond logo, however, there are no manufacturer marks on the punch bowl.  I suspect her attribution of the bowl to Heisey was based on the marked cups (which do not match the bowl).

The punch bowl is quite heavy and the glass has bubbles and a few straw marks.  It appears to be old glass, possibly EAPG.  Any ideas on the pattern name and/or manufacturer?  Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

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

Recently i won the Bid on below item;

Dell XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook i7-3667U 2.0GHz 8GB 256GB SSD 1080p(1920x1080)
 

 

But reseller has canceled the order by giving the reason that i have issue with my address and i am surprised that ebay do not have any resolution and such topic in their resolution center. I am really disappointed because this is totally unfair. I won the Bid and seller canceled the order without communicating with me on this matter.

 

I have NO ISSUE WITH MY ADDRESS.

 

I want to give negative feedback to this seller.

Seller Canceled the order on invalid reason

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.Displaying photo.JPG

Shipping & Returns question

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.

Cothing sellers.... What is this?

All the necklaces I see are listed as art glass beads, no plastic.  Mine just does not feel like glass - it's not cold like glass usually is and it's not all that heavy, although I guess the glass beads could be hollow (like glass Christmas ornaments).  I don't know if anyone can tell just by looking at photos if they are glass or plastic when I can't even tell with it in my hand, but here are photos:

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!!!

Some help with this necklace needed please

I bought something on eBay and when leaving feedback, in addition to the usual DSR ratings, it asked quite prominently:

 

Did the item arrive on or before Monday, May 11, 2015? Estimated Delivery Date: May 11___Yes  ___ No

 

I did not select yes or no because I did not remember when I received it. Moreover, I was NOT going to answer the question anyway since I am a repeat buyer from that seller (5 X) and I did not want to ding him in some way even if I did not receive the item by May 11, 2015.


My questions as a seller:

 

- What is this?

 

- What is eBay's MOTIVE with this question? (Seems redundant to me, why ask when that's a DSR).

 

- If one selects "no" does that then go to a page where eBay dings the seller in some manner?

 

- If this is another way to ding sellers, does anyone know in what manner eBay slaps sellers if the buyer says "No" on arrival time?

 

- In the past as we all know, when shipping on time (within same day or one day after payment), the ability to DSR is shaded out because a seller shipping on time. That's fine, I have lived with that (I ship same or next day.) But, is this now dinging sellers for delay by the shipping service?

 

- If it is a method of dinging sellers, is anyone privy to eBay's LOGIC for blaming sellers for USPS or UPS delays, in effect holding sellers liable for third party's conduct, here USPS or UPS, for example.

 

Thanks for any comments. (Yes, I looked around here for an answer on this.)

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!

I had talk to Ebay they said that if you went on to the resolution center and clicked on that case and went all the way over to the right you can cancel or void the item if you could do that that would be so great thank you so much for your time and consideration

I really apologize for the delay you're more than patient thank you so much

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.

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 dIMG_1427.JPGescribe 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.

Thoughts?

Thank you in advance.

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.

Getting Started question

I have called ebay on several occassions and cannot get this resolved.  The last call I was transferred to seven (7) different people on ebay as well as PayPal ... every one told me it was not in their department.  I sold an item in March for $300 + shipping .   I had agreed with the buyer to share the shipping cost for which I refunded approximately $21.  The ENTIRE $300 was to be paid to the charity ... this is the information as shown in my donation account:

I CANNOT GET THIS RESOLVED AT ALL ... ONE PERSON WAS GOING TO CALL ME BACK ... THAT WAS OVER A MONTH AGO AND I AM STILL WAITING FOR THAT CALL.

 

Someone else asked me if I tried to send it again which put me in an uproad as I screamed at him, EXACTLY HOW WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO DO THAT !!!   Yes, I can send it to the charity myself but then I will pay all the fees involved with the transaction which I should NOT have to pay ..  I already pay for the shipping for this charity.    Can anyone tell me what to do as I am at the end of my rope.

Thanks,

Hello,

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!

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.

How do I find out what kind of stones are in this jewelry?

 

The jewelry was purchased in South America, although I forget which country. I vaguely recall that the stone was specific to that region and one other in the Middle East somewhere.

 

Thanks so much for your help!

Is the writing on this pendant Chinese or Japaness or just artistic marks? I have had this for some time and now thinning out the herd so to speak. Any help?
The gold on the painting looks like it is hand done, do not know about the rest of the two pictures. The chain is marked 925, do not know if original to the pendant. Thoughts?

I don't even know how to describe this. I think the squiggly black stuff is glass, but whatever it is, it's applied to the outside of this blown amber vase. The glass seems almost to be crackled in very large bits, with the black lines applied in the ditches between each section. Only not always -- sometimes the glass sections are smooth and the black line isn't in a ditch between them.

 

I know that sounds crazy ... but I know you folks here have seen a lot more glass than I have and can possibly help? Thanking you all in advance for looking!

 

And I apologize if the photos are a bit grainy. They looked fine until this moment...

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?

Selling discussion

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.

Selling discussion

so I got restricted on my account for some stupid reason(not important). When I try to go to make another Ebay account, it gets restricted because the PayPal account linked with it, is also is linked with a restricted account.
If I want to still use the same PayPal account(that is associated with a restricted account) and make a different eBay account without the worry of getting restricted, will unlinking the PayPal account with the restricted eBay account let me create another eBay account without getting restricted on that one as well?

Hopefully this was not too confusing

Restricted on my second Ebay account?

I sold 1 pair of Barbie doll shoes for $5 bucks, less than a couple weeks ago and the buyer just opened a Return Request earlier today stating "doesn't match the listing." Her complaint is that the shoes are too big for Barbie so they must be for Ken and wants a refund (no mention of return). I've been a Barbie collector for years, I know they are for Barbie, made by Mattel in the 90's, and they have a "B" Barbie monogram on the sole of them. (There's other sellers on eBay with the same item listing them for Barbie as well). Of course they may fit "loose" but they are most certaintly for Barbie. I checked out this buyer's feedback left and she's very picky to a lot of other sellers as well. She buys lots of items for Barbie, I would assume she knows what is what.

 

I replied to the return request right away very nicely explaining why I think they are for Barbie, which dolls they may fit better, but in the end I offered her 50% partial refund ($3.75, her total was $7.50) and she can keep them. No response yet.

 

This is my very first return request/"item not as described".  ):  I don't care about the money. I just don't want a INAD defect something that isn't true at all. What should I do?

 

It's not fair that buyers can claim these things so easily.

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?

Bidding & Buying discussion

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.

Buyer asking for a partial refund? Scam?

Basically, I bought an item with the  buy it now option and the seller shipped the item.

I have a tracking number and I can see where the package is, but the seller relisted the

SAME item. Same description, same photo, everything. Is it normal ? Maybe the seller

has few of the same item. Tell me what you think. 

 

Thanks.

Hi.. I won the auction from the seller (seller with ZERO FEEDBACK) and I already paid.. But The seller told me he haven't received the money yet. I saw the status of my payment at paypal was still "UNCLAIMED". It said the seller is "UNREGISTERED" at paypal. I sent many messages to the seller but no reply at all. Only some messages were replied at the day I won the auction. It seems that the seller avoiding me and dishonest about everything he/she sell. I decided to cancel the payment and leave negative feedback to the seller.

 

Were this the right things to do? Is this kind of issue very common at ebay? I really dissapointed with the seller bacause I already won the auction and this item was for my bother's birthday. Thank you for respond my message.

Shipping & Returns discussion

I noticed that with paypal if you select a business account then even for fixed-price listings you can require immediate payment. Which would be very nice, to avoid people selecting purchase and never paying or take a long time to pay (trying to "hold" the item until they have the money). Has anyone used this before? Does it only work if you have an ebay store or can it be used for personal ebay listings? Any advice is appreciated.

Getting Paid

Opened a "basic" store front yesterday, and it appeared Ebay quickly moved all my items into the store. I had previously checked, and it appeared that my category should be at 6% FVF. As I understand it, the highest FVF for a store should be 9%. I sold two items today, and checked my account, and Ebay just charged me the usual 10% FVF on those items. Would anyone know why this is? Thanks!

Selling discussion

No FVF discount with new store?

Sales plummet.

We sell nothing - we buy nothing = no final value fees for eBay.

We buy no packing/shipping materials from other eBay sellers = no final value fees for eBay. (eBay still makes monies on our store fee).

Very grim indeed.

Are small time sellers (we actually used to have decent sales) being politely asked to move on?

Shipping & Returns question

international returns

I bid the lowest amount on an item. At the end of the auction, another bidder bid $10 more. The bidder has only ever bid ONCE on ebay. I didn't win the auction, the seller did, but I'm sure more people are going to be taken advantage of.

 

Will anyone do anything about this? I reported the old listing and the seller's new listing.

 

Let me clarify:

 

The reason I found it suspicious was because the buyer has zero feedback and never bid on a single item ever again. The buyer still has zero feedback. So the buyer made an account that started with the same letter as the seller, same number of characters, has zero feedback, and only bid on one item ever. I realize it's tempting to cast doubt immediately, but I suppose it would be pointless to try and convince you otherwise given the response I had on my first post.
