Hi All,

 

This one has me stumped and I would appreciated any help you can give, potential maker, decrative style, etc.  

By the English Registration back stamp, I can date this plate to Novemeber 28,1879.  I have never seen anything like it and I am not even sure how to describe it, let alone who might have made it

 

This is 7 5/8" in diamter and has a scalloped edge with ribbing

 

It kind of look like someone took a chintz decorated plate (Maybe blue flow) and added a translucent red to sections to form the bird and flower.  Then outlined the bird, flower and rim in gold

 

Here is the plate ...

I have a lovely flow blue plate that I picked up at a yard sale. There are no marks whatsoever on the underside, but the white and blue shades and crazing tell me it is old. My questions:

 

1. Is flow blue on china or porcelain or both?

2. Does a piece have to be marked to be worth something?

3. There are 3 sets of dots arranged in triangles on the back. I am assuming they had something to do with supporting the plate during the making process, yes? Does this tell us anything about the plate?

 

Here's the plate, itself. It measures 7-3/4" in diameter.

This is why the Defect System works!

So a few days ago I posted that my little Chipotle wasnt doing well. Turns out he had a ruptured disc in his spine which is why he suddenly became partially paralyzed (not cancer thank god!). The vet prescribed steroids but wasnt optimistic.  Apparently its rare for dogs to recover when paralysis is involved. Well just two days later, guess who is stumbling around on wobbly little feet! I knew he wasnt ready to give up yet, and he has earned his moniker more than once. He is my little pepper!  Thanks as always to all the prayers and support he received!

 

But this next one is a classic. I sold a vintage tie. The buyer took their time paying and I even had to open a claim cuz I figured they were going to disappear and wanted my fvf's back.  So the tie arrives and guess what? He's not happy cuz it got 'creased in shipping'. 

Well Ive been trying very hard not to respond with my first thought, which would be "iron it?"

but anyway, numpty is as numpty does.  Return and relist

This Vase is 8.75" High  About 7" at Widest.  I am assuming that it is Italian.  It is marked but I could not find the mark. Under the black is an indentation, the size of my thumb.  I am assuming that this is a repair to a chip.

Question about a Milk Glass Bracelet

This necklace is sorta heavy and extremely well made. I just want to make sure I'm not selling a fake Lanvin. Thanks so much for your help!001.JPG002.JPG

I found this today at the thrift store; it is a Mariage Freres teapot (I'd never heard of them before researching my new teapot!). It appears to be a 'Poetes Solitaire' tea pot, but none of the ones I've found have the little emblem or scene on the side. Is that what this is?

Is this valuable? Researching it today I get the impression that Mariage Freres is a tea room or tea shop - or restaurant? in Paris that sells & serves fine tea. Is this a pot someone took home as a souvenier? Because it has the gold tone name on bottom that changes color in light, I thought this one may have been meant to serve tourists?

 

I appreciate any help.

Good evening, 

I originally posted this over at childrens clothing boutique and someone suggested I try here. Hopefully this is where they meant. Could this be a childs pocketbook? Or perhaps to store jewelry for travel? I am really clueless here. Its about 4" wide, 3.5" high (minus the handle) and 2" front to back. There is a metal hoop on each side attached under the handle. One leans towards the inside (under the handle) and the other is leaning towards the outside away from the handle. A shoulder strap wouldn't fit correctly... maybe it had a little wrist strap? There is a silver color detailed heart snap closure and 3 smaller hearts decorating the bottom front. I dont know if its leather or vinyl but it appears to be very well made. Its nicely lined with a tiny pocket on the inside. The only marking I found was on the snap which says 408 W.K.BEE.HK Any thoughts would be appreciated.

How can I describe this fabric?

Is this an original piece? It has the old thin glass that you can tell will break with any wrong jar, plus a pencil signed name on the front bottom right corner that looks like Walter(?) Talbot 1903 PLUS a hand written note on the back that says

BLK LUKE   MRS. BRYAN 50 ¢

Does anyone know who Talbot was? Or Black Luke (isn't that what blk is short for?)?

 

Also - is this a pre Yankees baseball league or a basketball league?

 

The photo is attached loosely to the background paper and does not have a glossy or waxy feel like a reg photograph - but it also does not have pixelation like a print.

 

Most importantly - Is this a real?!   I haven't found another photo of any champions posing for a photo in their street clothes!

 

I REALLY appreciate any help with this one.

Thanks

My husband's wedding band is broken...again. He's on band #2. They cost around $60 with inscription and everything. Should I try to have it repaired (we've got a local jewler who I can take it too) or just buy him a new one? I thought about getting him a new one for Christmas and a chain so he can wear it around his neck, but he doesn't like necklaces. Sigh...

 

He basically cracks it while he's laying gas line (natural/propane).  Altho 'laying' isn't the word I'd use, I'd use installing becuase it's all over his head and he's screwing together 20ft section with huge pipe wrenches (those wrenches are what's cracking and then breaking his ring). It doesn't help that he is left-handed and so that's the hand that gets the most pressure with the wrenches. 

 

I try to remind him to take it off, but he can't remember.

 

This is a picture of my ring, which is exaclty like his (only not broken and 3 sizes smaller, lol) I bought this style so they wouldn't bend because sterling tends to bend on my finger (if it's thin enough) and go flat on one side. I did talk to him about getting a bendier one, and he said no, he'd rather it break then bend and smash on his finger. I agreed that would be better, for his finger anyway, lol

Woke up this morning and my Dell desktop failed to boot at all.  The power light just flashes green and there is no sound emitting from the unit (no start up noises) whatsoever, and no video to the monitor. I don't usually turn off the computers at night, rather just turn off the monitors and let them time out into sleep mode. No other computer seems affected.

 

What could have happened and is there a way that I can fix it? I am not scared to open it as I've replaced the sound card and the wi-fi cards myself last year.  I hate having to take it to a repair shop - but that is the PC I use the most and with hindsight being 20/20, it's been about a month since I've done back-ups (my fault I know).

I'm posting here because there isn't any activity on the Art board, and I'm hoping someone here can help me with a site for info or a price range. The artist is Hiroshi Kimura, and the piece is dated 2004. Research shows he's in the New York area, but I can't find where any of his works have sold. It appears to be OOC on a 1 1/2" thick wood frame. It looks to have been varnished (if that's the correct term) with a yellow coat of something, or maybe it's just yellowed with age? Size is 14 1/4" square.

I found this http://books.google.com/books?id=BflYAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA3-PT244&lpg=RA3-PT244&dq=who+made+%22art+cut%22+pressed+glass&source=bl&ots=8mUf3qJMSZ&sig=0WmjSjTPsYIL3pYQLRG_o6twDd0&hl=en&sa=X&ei=1JZrVKnIFMGgNtDjgNAP#v=onepage&q=who%20made%20%22art%20cut%22%20pressed%20glass&f=false Confirming that it was US Glass that did the Art Cut. Any suggestions? TIA!

I dropped the US Mint online and looked at some of the commemorative offereins. I was kind of intrigued by the US Mint Baseball coin but got a little confused when I saw " Mintage Limit: 750,000* Product Limit: None, Household Order Limit: None" .

 

 

http://catalog.usmint.gov/national-baseball-hall-of-fame-2014-proof-half-dollar-B35.html?cgid=commemoratives#_ga=1.13272371.524993603.1415247988&start=1

 

Does this mean there is a limit of 750k produced but that you can order as many as you like?  I also would like to know if the silver coins reflect the current {low} price of silver or if they stay the same through the years - like with the American Eagle silver dollar coins.   And if I have caught anyone's ear, any opinions on the new 5 ounce silver commemerative coins?  Will they appreciate in value beyond their silver value?

 

Thanks.

For the past couple days I have not been able to do anything with Turbo Lister.  All of a sudden, it is wanting me to do the authoroze/authenticate stuff as if I was a new user.

 

After entering my password, it very briefly attempts to access my account on eBay, then quits and pops up a text file with the code for some ebayISAPI file.

 

Anyone have any idea what is going on here?  TL is completely unusable at the moment because of this.

Hello,

 

My wife and I are hoping that someone has seen these miniature sterling silver military men. They look like a british or french artillery team minus one guy. The soldiers are approx 1" tall and all are marked with the word "sterling". The cannon has the same patina as the men but I can not see the word sterling on it. Does anyone have any information that would help us identify or date them.

 

Any help would be great - and thanks for taking the time to look at them.

 

Here are the photos - Our best to You - Rob & Tracie

how can i list the color quantity of an item?

Hello ebay community.

 

I haven't spent a lot of time ebaying and stuff, and I'm not really familiar with it, especially with the scams. I wanted to buy a keyboard

 

The thing is (for people who are not familiar with gaming keyboards), it costs ~100 dollars in stores. The guy does not have many feedbacks, however the one that he has is from selling the same item (and he replied to me that he has already sold 6 of them, but the people were too lazy to feedback him). Do you think it is too good to be true? Would I get refunded if he does not ship the item or ships something else?

 

Thank you in advance for your replies.

New to ebay-too good to be true?

I won an action for a watch shipping from Turkey and the seller shipped on Oct 14. I got to the US NY sort center and it sat there until today according to USPS.  I was told by USPS customer service that it was probably in customs, no problems. 

 

I checked tonight and it now says 

 

  • USPS Tracking™ is unavailable for this product for TURKEY.

To me that looks like it is on its way back to Turkey. 

 

I've never seen this before but I also don't think I've ever had interational mail from anywhere but SE Asia and the UK.

 

Any ideas?

Shipping & Returns question

when I found a stereo view card similar to this - mine is 1902 and in better shape.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-original-1890S-STEREOVIEW-PHOTO-CHINA-PEKING-STREET-VIEW-/151434633203?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item2342351ff3

This is all on the up and up now, so I contacted this seller (she's in Peru)  and asked her starting price - it was 150 and she had many clicks, many watchers.

So I put mine up on a 7 day auction, start at 150, same, same, I didn't want to leave any chips on the table.  After 3 days, no clicks. So I changed my title same as hers, except for the date, 0 clicks (other than me) at the end of the 7 days. Showed up fine in the searches. I couldn't believe it.

So I relisted for five days, a price more reasonable, now I'm getting clicks and a watcher.

What gives? Does someone in Peru get more exposure than me? Really bugs me.

I thought I hit the lottery

I recently bought a item through the "commit to buy" option, and I do not want the item. If the owner says no, and if I do not pay for the item, then what would happen?

Bidding & Buying discussion

 

I really can't wrap my head around this one.  I sold a cell phone a few weeks ago.  Listing was accurate and included about 10 large photos the phone from all angles.  

 

A few days later I see a message from eBay saying the buyer wants to return the phone and the reason is "I found a lower price."  I of course say no and tell him finding a lower price not grounds for a return.  He then replies that the reason he wants to return is that he chose the wrong option.  I told him that there was wrong option to choose because I'm only selling one phone!  Buyer finally replies with the truth, he wanted to try the phone and see if he liked and he doesn't so now he would like to return it.  I tell the buyer he can't use eBay to "try things out."  Also explained to him that I delivered exactly what I promised in the listing if he didn't like it he should not have bid and I would not be excepting his return.  Buyer then said that because I would not take his return that he would have to involve eBay.

 

A few days after our message exchange I get a message from eBay saying "A request is open in the Resolution Center, please respond."  7 minutes later I get another message saying eBay has ruled in the buyers favor!  The first message said I had a few days to respond, I guess not.

 

Needless to say I was pretty shocked eBay would rule in the buyers favor so a re read request in the Resolution Center.  Turns out the buyer told eBay the reason for the return was that the "item was not as described."  Under the Buyer's Message portion of the return request he says "I bought the phone to see if I liked it and I don't. The seller has a return policy so I tried to contact the seller to let them know I would like to return and now they are saying that I may not."  His message is a direct contradiction to the not as described excuse he told eBay!

 

My question then is how can eBay possibly rule in the buyers favor?  He opened a return request by saying the item was not as described yet he never once said what specifically differed from the description.  Doesn't a buyer at lease have to say how the item differs from the description?  Our entire message exchange was done via eBay so eBay can see the buyer continually changed his reasoning for the return.  Yet still they side with him?  How?

 

I called customer service and finally go through to the escalations department.  The two customer service people I talked to said it was a clear case of buyers remorse.  I asked to speak to the person who made the decision in the buyers favor so I could get an explination and hopefully avoid having this problem in the future. eBay said I could not speak with them but that they would email that person and have them contact me within 48 hours, which I doubt will happen.

 

If anyone here has had a similar problem I'm curious as to how it played out.  Thanks.

MY TOP RATED BADGE

Is is smart (or not) to list auction style listings starting tonight and tomorrow? They would end on Thanksgiving Day/night and black Friday. Thank you for any input!!!

Selling discussion

Alright, here's the scenario.  I sell trading cards that I ship with just a white envelope + stamp.  When I have many items to ship, I have been opening the 'order details' page in a new tab for every single item.  This is kind of a pain when I have 30+ items to ship on a given day.  Is there a better way to do this that does NOT involve printing shipping labels?  Paying $2 to ship something with tracking that sells for $3 is -never- happening.

 

My question - is there a way to bulk view order details/shipping addresses for sales I have made?  I.e. a list that just shows the item name and shipping address of every item at once?

Shipping multiple items

I am trying to sell a set of books and ship media mail; however, media mail is limited to a maximum flat shipping rate of $7.00.  The entire set of books weighs about 24 lbs and a calculated price is about $19.00.  But the calculated price only calculates and charges for one box.  Since there are so many books, I need to ship in separate boxes to minimize the possiblity of damage.  I don't see any method to charge adequate shipping unless I use USPS flat rate boxes, which would more than double the costs to the buyer.  How to I charge fair shipping rates in two boxes?

Shipping & Returns discussion

Hi, I accepted an offer for an item and I send the buyer an invoice, but he says eBay is telling him that I need to complete the order in order for him to see the option to pay through PayPal. I'm new at this, and I can't see anything that says it's incomplete, and I'm hesitant to cancel the order out of fear that I'll still be charged eBay fees.

 

What can I do? The only options available for me on My eBay are: Mark as payment received, Mark as shipped, Leave Feedback, View order details, Contact buyer, Cancel order, Send invoice, View offer details, Sell similar, Relist, Resolve a problem, and Report this buyer.

Payments discussion

Hi everyone,

I'm writing to you all out of sheer desperation, as eBay's own customer service center provided me with no help whatsoever. Additionally, I contacted USPS directly, but they could do nothing for me except "document the problem."

Basically, I ordered a cologne off eBay. Turned out it was counterfeit (shocker). I filed a claim describing the issue, and the seller promptly approved a return request. I printed the shipping label off of My eBay, attached it to the package, and dropped it off in an official USPS box. This was almost five days ago -- the tracking number never updated, and the individuals at USPS said they have no idea what happened to it. 

What do I do at this point? Am I out of $50 or is there some option available to me? I'm somewhat hesitant to contact the seller directly because he sold me a counterfeit product, so that says a lot about his credibility. I really, really don't trust him, and I'm afraid the blame is going to be shifted to me since the package was lost after I received it. I can't believe this is all happening when it was the seller who sold me a fake -- I feel like I should have been given a refund immediately.

The item I shipped arrived broken. The two pieces had been wrapped in bubble-wrap and then "packed" (i.e., empty space filled) with 4 air pillows. All 4 had collapsed when the package arrived.  This was shipped from Mass. to Missisippi, 11/6.

 

Do pillows collapse? They are recycled - I save them from packages I recieve.

I have been listing items for the shop I work at and have been doing good so far. I have a question for the veteran sellers here. Is shipping your items via Priority Mail better than Standard Post? I know Priority comes with $50 Insurance and is faster shipping time, but of course costs a little more. I also wonder, does using Priority Mail attract more buyers than if I stuck with Standard Post? Just wanting some opinions as I was thinking of changing my shipping to Priority.

banned from selling

When the auction ended Friday the buyer received the usual ebay message stating that they won the auction and the calculated amount to pay. 

Saturday I sent an invoice with a reduction in shipping since it was going to cost so much less by using priority mail.

  On Monday I sent a reminder with a note saying if the buyer needed to wait a few day to pay for the auction, just to let me know. 

  They have 7 feedback and have been good buyers over the past few months. I understand they may be out of town, have an emergency, no money until next week, internet is down...etc.  Any number of reasons, and some reasons could be an emergency.  I have not had any response from the buyer at all.

 

We do more buying than selling and I have never run into this before.  I don't state in the auction how many days to pay. I've never had to before. 

 

Thank you for any replies.

I've had this happen 2 times now, once today and once last week.

 

I get notification that a buyer has paid for their item but the item they paid for is or was not listed. It also was not in my list of sold items or items waiting for payment. I actually had to call ebay last week to find where this item was and they located it in my deleted folder. Today I received notification that buyer paid for item and again, I find it in delted folder.

 

NOw they only things I delete are when things end, they go to the unsold folder, I check box them, then sell similar, and after them being listed I go back to the unsold folder and delete those items.

 

Also noticed things are ending up in the delted folder that have been paid for, shipped and they buyer has already left feedback for, but I haven't. I didn't delete those things either.

 

This from a week ago...

I think there is a glitch somewhere or I am not seeing something.

 

But again the only things I delte are the unsold items.

 

Anyone else having this issue?
Thanks

Selling discussion

Buyer received a piece of stainless steel she said was damaged and is bent. My pictures will show it wasn't shipped that way but I know ebay doesn't side with Sellers anymore.

 

Should I request buyer to provide pictures? Should I ask for return? Does Buyer pay for return for refund?

 

I don't have any money in my PP now for this return. 

Shipping & Returns question

I use the Global Shipping Program for all my items.  Though this particular item doesn't qualify for shipping to Brazil, I added it separately as a country I ship to.  When the buyer attempts to place a bid they are unable to do so because of this message:

 

We are sorry but the item you selected may not be purchased due to Seller shipping restrictions, country specific import/export or other relevant restrictions

 

From what I can tell I am not restricting any buyers.

 

I'm fairly new to eBay, so I appreciate your feedback.  Thanks for your help!

Shipping & Returns question

I received a negative feedback because buyer stated that I didn't send out item. Item was sent, but I didn't include delievery confirmation so I wasn't able to double check. Buyer never contacted me and just left a negative feedback. Today in the mail, I recieve the package with it being marked "Unclaimed, Return to Sender." I double check the address and it was written correctly as stated on the invoice.

 

I contacted buyer and is waiting for an answer. If the buyer don't reply or refuse to revise the feedback, is there anything else I can do?

 

Selling question

I have my own paypal account which is linked to a VISA card.  My husband has his own paypal account tied to another credit card.  I saw something for my grandson and didn't want to use my money which is strictly for the collection I have.  So I copied it over and paid for it on my husband's account.  But, somehow, and I don't remember how I did this, the item is still listed in my cart.  The item has been paid for and received but it's still there saying to pay for it.  Does anyone know how to delete this from my cart?  Should I leave it there?  Will it just disappear after a few days?  Or is it something I should ask a CR?  Thanks ahead of ttime!
