Help needed from the Coach authenticators

I am hoping someone might be able to dechiper the name of this Lithograph Line Drawing and artist. I suspect it is from the 1970's or 80's?


I am not sure what this form of drawing is actually called but I love the style.


Any help appreciated

Help Identifying Lithograph Line Drawing

It's bright blue, 3.15 lbs, measures 10 3/4" the tallest  x  9 1/2" L, any idea who made it by reading the mark?, thanks in advance.

Instead of paying $10.44, it would probably have been $100. Is this part of a FEDEX RIPOFF scheme or another EBAY TIC that they need to fix?

Thank you for helping with what I think (?) is a P.T. Bavaria Tirschenreuth mark on a salt dish set (sadly, the master salt is chipped).  I haven't been able to find the same mark and determine when it was used (also searched the porcelainmarksandmore reference site and couldn't find it).

Please help Id this maker

Just thought I'd throw this out there...


#10 You have a bunch of stupid characters in your title and or listing: L@@K A+++++++ quality jibber jabber. This listing must have been placed by a nine year old. A nine year old that is not likely to actually mail me the merchandise if I win, so I am not going to bid. L@@K at 





I am sure that I am not the only person who did not bid on your auction because of one of these reasons. That means that you may now be relisting your item, or selling it for a lot less than what you could have. The following is a rant. A rant that contains my opinions, which may differ entirely from your opinions. You are allowed to have your own opinions. You have been warned.


#9 I can not tell how much you are charging for shipping: The Shipping section says “please see listing for shipping details” and the listing is barren, like a wasteland. With no mention of these elusive charges anywhere, I will have to move on. I may “ask the seller a question” but then again I may not.


#8 had to do with not accepting Paypal, I don't think this applies, you either accept paypal or you're not listing on ebay?


#7 Your description is junk: You are a salesperson when you type up your description. Sell it to me. Do not give me the name of the item and hope it is what I was looking for. I have bought a few things that I was not specifically looking for because the picture and the description made me think, “wow that is cool.” If I do not know what a ‘VINTAGE 1961 HICKY MA JIGGY” is, I am not going to buy yours. There are indeed collectors out there who may bid, but you are missing out on a lot of people by not telling us what the hell this Hicky ma Jiggy is and does. The worst are the sellers who feel the need to explain to me every shipping and return and every other 'store' or 'ebay' policy that is either already explained elsewhere on the site or guess what, it's ebay and not 'your' place to do with as you please but either way, the description is where sellers should be "DESCRIBING" the item for sale.

Enough said.


#5 Busted goods: eBaying broken junk works for some people, but I really do not want to bid, wait, watch, hope, win, wait for shipping, get the item, feel the excitement of seeing it in the mailbox, bring it in, open it up…and then have to fix it. There are people out there who will bid on an electronic device that does not work because they are hoping that it is the circuit board that is bad on yours so that they can get the flux capacitor off of it, and replace theirs. I am not one of them but when I am, I want it listed as "For Parts / Not working."


#4 Busted goods fit for the garbage: Sorry, but if you or someone else already took the most valuable parts off the device you're trying to sell me… Don't sell the scrap board left overs to me while pretending it's complete, matter of fact don't even list it as "may be missing some parts," look... If it's missing anything and everything of value and it is ready to be thrown in the garbage, please do us a favor and throw it away already, it is junk, it needs to be gone.


#3 Starting bid is way too high: It may surprise you that I do not consider this to be the number one reason to not even consider a bid, but I honestly feel that this is the 3rd most important reason. My absolute favorite is when the description itself says this super deluxe hicky ma jiggy retails for $25 — and the starting bid is $24.99 plus $6 shipping. That is just a little worse than the listings that say I am clearing out my store inventory to make room for new items. This item listed for $25 but is now OOP ( out of print) and the starting bid + shipping charges add up to be equal to or greater than $25. Ummm think about this. You had it listed in your store for $25 for so long that it is now out of print and you expect to get $25 for it now. If it were actually worth $25 it would not be in need of you ‘clearing’ it from your inventory. I honestly do not care how cool something is or how much I want or think I need it…I am on eBay to get a deal. I am not interested in bidding exactly what I can pay for your item in a store and having to wait a week to see if I won it or not.

#2 Blurry/Dark/nearly useless or the wrong picture: This is not quite as bad as no picture at all (that is so bad it gets its own listing…see below) But the picture is worth a thousand words. I have already mentioned the actual words of the description and that is usually way less than 1000. Do you want a thousand words screaming DO NOT BID ON THIS AUCTION? I didn’t think so. I see way too many listings where it says right in the description something like “These miniatures were painted by an Uber Pro painter and they rock hardcore, but my **bleep**py camera sucks so trust me they look WAY better in person than what these pictures show. Another example of this is when the pictures are too dark, blurry or both because the lack of adequate lighting severely affects the focus, making it difficult to see the details — or even some of the item that you are looking at. A case in point:

Really cool description from above:




Same really cool description … but…


wizards bad photo


Which of these would you bid on? I would not bid on that second one unless I knew that those figures were worth $10 each and the current bid was $1 or $2. If I did not know what the figures were supposed to be, I would be lost. The description says the wizards are in cool poses, but that picture does not show that. This means again that a lot of potential bidders do not bid because they do not even know what you are selling. You can clearly see the figures on the magazine in the good photo to give you an understanding that there is indeed coverage in there about the particular figures included.

This also happens when you are looking at a listing for an authentic and fully functional Luke Sky Walker lightsaber with instructions and an old Jedi Master to train you on its use, but the photo is of the Emperor holding Darth Vader’s lightsaber. Can I truly be sure that Yoda or Obi-Wan will be in the shipment that I am bidding on if the Dark Lord of the Sith is pictured? I may just have to wait around for another listing of a real lightsaber…I could use the eBay question thing, but if the Emperor is involved, I can not truly be sure that he will not just cover the answer to my question with the shroud of the dark side…

#1 No photo: This is what I think when I see the following:

“Check out my auction. It is a Babe Ruth rookie card in great condition.”

No picture? How do you expect me to put a value on something like this without a photo??

I see an awful lot of listings for individual miniatures where they go so far as to include the manufacturers item number, but not a photo. Remember that the first photo is free so you are ripping yourself off by not including one. If I like the description of the miniature, for instance “Shadow Dragon with treasure pile UberCool minis #123,” I may go to Google image search and pull up Ubercool 123 and look for a photo. However there are Thousands of minis made by Ubercool minis, so after I check a few I get tired of all of the extra work and I stop. That leaves me no choice but to skip all of the hundreds and hundreds of listings without pics for a week or two until another cool sounding one comes along.

Trying to understand the difference between the egg yolk necklaces, they actually amber? The reason I ask is because this old bangle reminds me of egg yolk although when referring to a bakelite color website, I am guessing it would be classified as butterscotch?

Napier necklace - Is it in the Napier Book?

I found this little guy in a case where it appears the dealer is going out of business.  She has the best top-quality stuff, and finally slashed her prices.  


I have not seen another one like it anywhere on the Internet.  There is a similar piece made by KJL for Sphinx; there is a current auction up listed as a blue-faced cat (not my auction, just for info) that appears to use the same mold, but my piece has the fourth leg bolted on the back, similar to other Hattie pieces.  The face is carved more intricately; the jaws are made of gold tone metal similar to the Hattie pirahna fish.  It is really well-made, and looks like it could fit into the Primitives on Parade line.  


What do you all think?  Thanks for your help.

Good morning everyone



New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

On the light hearted side...


Went to the Flea Market yesterday...


Bought some items (not much, nothing red hot)...  Picked up a leaf style rhinestone necklace, didn't think a thing about it... Just ready to take pictures and took a good look at it...  And then, I started to wonder....  Then I proceeded to google....  Then I sent a text and pic to my son who had too much fun in his college days and asked him what he thought it was...  He texted back that I nearly caused him to destroy his phone when he spit his drink on it laughing at my naive stupidity....


So, what was it?  Posting a picture....


Oh yeah, plenty of similar for sale on here...


Maybe someone will get the munchies for my rhinestones.... LOL....

Jewelry & Gemstones Board Group

Can someone help me figure out what this is?


When I google "double egg cup", I get photos of these.


When I search for "double egg cup" in pottery on eBay, I get not a single one of these.


Can someone confirm or deny that this is a double egg cup?


Thank you.

Is this a double egg cup?

I was so excited to find one, I didn't really look at the piece like I should have done before purchasing......When I got home all excited showing my husband my what I thought was a fabulous buy he then shows me the missing stones....Ugh So I have been researching this piece for hours and can't seem to find any 2 exactly the same. There are a few of the small pink ab stones and the pin bar is bent easy fix for someone however there is a stone missing on his right sleeve that seems to vary by the pieces I can find on line however the sone that is nesteled under his sleeve of his left hand is my huge question those online are  green stone and him is like a crystal ball type stone that has a chip in it......I can't find any piece on line that has the crystal ball stone with this Asian budda guy...I have seen a few boardies post on HAR so I always keep my eye open for one....Thought I got lucky but after inspecting the piece once I got home....Not so much

Hi All. I guess this is where the Pottery & Glass Board migrated to. I have a 10.25" Hull plate in an unusual color, mocha with an ochre purple border that has white spots. It's signed 'hull' in lower case with Crooksville, Ohio in script on the back.


Is this the same line as the dark brown drip glaze plates from the 1960s? Is it an unusual enough color to have more value than those plates?

I just got a new Tiny Kitty (naturally!).   She is a LTD ED from an event  in 2004.   Old Hollywood Glam - "Puttin On The Ritz".    Doesn't come around that often and I have wanted her for some time. .  The only thing is that her hair is very plastered down.  Don't know if that is original (not Tonner's way in my experience).   Or perhaps the original owner did that to keep it in tact.   Never the less, I adore her.    Sassy this one with short black bobbed hair and red lips (which sadly have faded a tiny bit).

So I am wondering if this Kirks Folly Mermaid Siren pin is an earlier piece, possibly 80's since there is no enamel on it. I have search and hoping someone on the board may know or have directional help. Many thanks!

Are these opalite beads???

I know nothing about pottery, but this vase caught my eye because of the unusual marking on th bottom.  Do you know who would have used this mark?  It looks like a koi fish.

Any help is appreciated.  CarolynDSCN3473.JPGDSCN3463.JPG

Is there a name for these types of beads, and also the peach to orange color is there a name for that effect?  It is a 3 strand Hong Kong signed plastic beads.

Picked up this piggy bank at an estate sale this weekend.  Internet research has not been very productive.  Could be Hull.  Could be Shawnee.  Could be repro.  I just don't know.  Any thoughts?


It's about 10 inches snout to tail, about 6 1/2 inches high, about 5 inches wide.  Marked "U S A" no periods under the chin.


Looks old, but who knows.  Some crazing under the glaze, but not excessive.  This is hard to explain and I couldn't get it in a photo, but there is what looks like a line around the center like the top and bottom halves were joined together.  You can feel a slight dip as you rub your finger from top to bottom over this.


Any help appreciated.

Help with this Piggy Bank - Any thoughts?

I cannot for the life of me think what to call the color of these pink beads.  They are gorgeous and the necklace is in excellent condition.  I look at it and think ombre, but I'm not sure that begins to describe it.  Is there a name for this kind of coloring?  It's hard to caputre it but the color is not faded, this is just how the beads were made, and each bead has a slightly different faded color pattern to it.

Beautiful suspended nude (headless), with angel wings, Collar necklace.  The figure is about 3 1/2" long and stamped on the back legs. 

Does anyone recognize this artist signature, it is a stamped signature and numbered.  (Possibly a NYC / Brooklyn artist)

The image is just a representation of the actual piece and the stamp is the actual stamp.

Thank you!!ANGEL NECKLACE.jpg

First, I apologize for the number of pictures, but i wanted to illustrate this artists style.Or would this even be considered to be art?  These were done by  local woman who has a mental disability.  She and her art were featured on a local tv news channel in regards to an exhibit of her works at a small studio in a nearby small town.  I am always at a loss to understand the differences between those I listed in the above subect heading.  I am hoping someone here can educate me a little.  What is amazing about these works is that on many of them there is an outstanding 3D effect when wearing 3D glasses.  The gallery owner told me that the woman who is 42 years old did not start drawing until she was 30 and says she can see her work with the 3D effect without wearing the glasses.  Any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated as always.

This is my latest addition to my collection and was trying to at least find a bracelet to match or marry. I have had no luck so far no markings but I love the silver-toned filigree cups in which the red tear drop stones nestle in the detail just amazes me.

done with ebay!

OK. I sold a rune stone set a week ago and the buyer called me today... She said the runes won't lay perfectly flat like the picture. In the photograph, I made sure that the runes were propped up a certain way so that all of the symbols could be read. I do this because there are different alternative sets out there and wanted to make sure that all of the symbols could be seen.


This phone call went on for 30 minutes (as I was finishing up lunch) and I kept my cool and tried to figure out how in the world I could possibly satisfy this person. All I could do was tell them that the rocks were natural and not sculpted or carved in a way to make them lay a certain way. She then went on an said that well she would like just six of them exchanged with ones that would lay flatter and would send me pictures of those specific ones.


So I'm thinking, er, okay, do I really want to do that? I feel there would be no pleasing this one! She also went on to say that a set of instructions should have been included. Geesh! I throw in a small velvet bag as an extra whenever I have them in stock. Darn, there's no satisfying some folks!

Boy, I've Got Myself a Jewel Here!

I recently a won a bid for my visually impaired adult daughter. Still not sure how I won. She feels the luggage I got is too

bulky for her to keep up with. I have contacted the seller 3 times but all I get is a computer generated response that I have to pay or

or my account will be suspended. If I pay and the luggage comes to my home, we plan to return it. Help! What do I do! I'm a nervous

wreck over this!

Getting Started question

A person sent me a text message today to "ask questions" about the item that I currently have listed on eBay. This was a bit unnerving because I was not aware that my contact info was ever available to bidders until the item is actually sold. I know that there is an advanced search feature where you can request a user's contact info, but it also says that in this case both users' contact info will be disclosed to each other. I wasn't notified of any of this (and I would have denied the request). Does anyone know what's going on here?

I have a question as a newbie. I've been a member since 2008 but only recently began buying quite a few items. I also just recently decided to educate myself on FB, which I think all new members need to do. I've never left negative feedback, even though I've thought about it, and after reading the importance of positive FB to sellers, I'm glad I didnt. Anyway, I digress. As a buyer, I pay for items instantly. I've recieved many positive FBs from sellers for this prior to leaving them FB, and I appreciate this so much. However, I agree with sellers that a buyer should leave the FB first so that the seller knows that the transaction is complete. I always do this as soon as I recieve my item. Once, I simply forgot to leave FB, and the seller politely messaged me to ask for it, whereupon I immediately left it.

I have done several transactions with one seller, though, who has never left me feedback. Each time I buy an item from this person, I leave tremendous FB upon receiving the item, but they have never left me any in return. Now, ordinarily, I'm not bothered by a seller doing this, but after five or six transactions, I would kind of like the favor returned. I'm considering not buying from this seller anymore simply because I feel it's common courtesy that has been ignored. Am I overreacting? I'm assuming they just don't do FB, but it would be nice. To me, it's less a status issue and more of a "thank you for your purchase" part of customer service. Please help.

Selling discussion

I recently ( last week ) bought polybags here on ebay and paid for it like I always do and just got a notice that my payment would be coming out of my paypal jan28 because I had opted for the pay after delivery deal under buyer protection plan. As far as I know I did not choose that option, I hate delayed payments! I googled how to turn this off for future purchases and was unable to. Is this some new default setting or did I screw up at time of purchase? I am a seller too so I am curious if most buyers are choosing this option ? I followed instructions to go under my profile and change it on my profile page under the category " my money" which I did not see in the page , nor did I see an option to pay now. What am I screwing up ?

Hi, I bid and bought a pair of jordans few days ago.

Now that I have recieved my package, I found out that the shoes are fake shoes!!!

The seller didn't really mention any authenticity on the description and he does not accept refund.

Is it still possible for me to get my money back????

Help! Fake items!!

The sell had a posting for two hell drakes (warhammer40k models) as a lot. the item picture was taken in such a way as to hide missing parts and damage. I paid 90.00 +9.75 shipping.

The discription only said "Two Hell Drakes ready for paint" What i got was damaged and broken models with missing parts: Broken legs missing legs a broken wing and more. Had this damage happend during shipping i would have simply repaired the items and moved on. None of the missing parts were in the package.....

I contacted the seller and requested a refund. - The seller told me No they do not accept refunds.


Seller-  How does it not match. It's the exact items that were pictured.


Me-1st of all you posted them as ready to paint. They are not, they are broken birds. Not even just broken but missing all kinds of parts! The picture you took was at an angel in witch to hide the defects! Watch the post an item on ebay video! I requested a return to give you a chance instead of just opening a case man, I am trying to be nice about this. But you know these were bad, the white bird does not even have front legs, the grey one is all busted up and i know you know that. The back left foot is broken off and missing. The beak is craked on the white one. Broken parts are one thing. I understand things get broken when poorly packed and thats fine I have glue and 30 years of modeling skills. Missing parts I can't replace and incomplete models are another matter.


** At this point i sent 5 pictures highlighting the defects in MS paint with arrows and such **


Me - "Two drakes ready to be painted." - copied right out of your posting.....


Seller - The picture shows exactly what was up for auction. They were ready to be primed and painted. The white on is posed differently then norm. If you had questions about the original you should have asked before the end of the auction not after the fact. As far as poor packaging I had them bubble wrapped peanuts and airbags to fill all the extra space possible to minimize movement in shipping. My auction clealy states no returns.


Me - Just to be clear, you are saying you will not let me return this even though it does not match your posted item discription.


Seller - I'm not sending you a refund. I packaged them to the best of my ability and shipped them as best as possible. All questions should have been addressed prior to now. Listing even specifies no returns.


Me - I Dont know how i could have asked about missing parts that were hidden in the pictures until I got the items but, ok. I am sorry we could not work this out. I will be requesting Ebay step in and handle this matter from here. I really didnt want to give you negative feedback. As a seller I know how important good feedback is. How about you take a day or two to think about this and maybe you will see my perspective on this. I will take no further action intill Jan 28th. Please consider giving me a refund. - thanks


Seller - I'm sorry you feel this way. I posted one picture and ban accurate discription. Both models were assembled and on thier bases ready for primer and paint. I packaged both models wrapped in bubble warp with packing peanuts firmly to avoid movement in shipping. I answered your only question which was weather or not the models had been painted. I would have gladly taken additional photos for you had you asked. threatening me with negative feedback will get you nowhere. If you feel the need to file a claim please do soas i will nor be blackmailed into giving you a refund because you have changed your mind about a purchase that clearly states no returns.


Me - I am sorry we could not resolve this issue. Please do not contact me furthrt unless it's to accept a return.


I waited one full day and left negative feedback to warn other buyers about this seller : " Dont trust this seller, was sold junk 40k models missing parts incomplet broke"



Seller left me feedback 15mins later:  + positive: "Learn to ask questions before an auction ends, no returns means No Returns"


Now ebay is saying i have to wait 5 more days before i can open a case? Any adivce on this would be very helpful you thoughs or comments.

I dont feel i am wrong but maybe i am, i dont know but im stressed about this and dont understand why a seller would do this. I know i never would trick or take from another.


Selling question

I sold a phone following the #eBayForTheWin guidance for creating the listing and setting the pricing, so it should qualify for a coupon for the difference between the trending price of $303 at the time of listing and the actual final selling price of $198. 


@davidcline Hi, this should be automatically added to your account within 7-10 days. ^BC

— Ask eBay (@AskeBay) January 18, 2015


The promotion terms say that the coupon will be fulfilled 7-10 days after the end of the listing on 1/16/15, now 7 days ago.  How will I know when this $105 coupon is added to my account?  Is there any sort of notification or alert when it is fulfilled?  If not, where would I see it in my account if it has already been added?  I have never received an eBay coupon before and don't want to miss the 14 day redemption window!
