Wow, these little child's plates have a lot going for them. They glow a nice yellow green & I tested them since these have so much sparkle! Does anyone have an idea on who made them? They are 4 1/2" in diameter and have a slight ribbing on the surface, maybe to keep the food on the plate? Anyway, I did check EAPG site stars, fine diamonds, tiny flowers etc...any help would be appreciated! Thanks very much!

AND ON A SIDE NOTE: What is it about EAPG and Flint glass that makes it so darn durable?

Identify Type of Duck - Wood Decoy

I have acquired this gorgeous Pickard piece. After some research I can identify the date range and the artist - John Nessy - but I sure don't know what it was made to be used for.

 

It is a 4" high covered pot and plate. The  pot has a molded hole in the center bottom. What could this be? Might there be a piece, or pieces missing?

 

 

 

 

The previous owner went a little crazy with the green felt pads!

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

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).

Hope someone can help Me. 

my rating has just come up as BELOW standered. I am concerned of having issues now with ebay - I am reading all these things- but to not understand why i got this rating...

 

I am assuming when so many orders come in and are sold- and so little people leave feedback, somehow that counts towards the ratings- and 

 

 also.. when someone emailed me an ask me to cancel a transaction i have done that with out issue- does that count against me in the long run too???

 

 

 

its showing 4.93% had defects....

but i dont think anyone contacted ebay-- i wasnt made aware of it- 

and when people contacted me about any issue with a problem of an item i fixed the problem -with them,

 

I am getting an orange flag icon gives you a heads up about something that could impact your seller performance standing, and you should work to improve your performance in that area.

 

any once- can you please tell me what i can do to fix this???

 

Also someone said at one time. there was an email with a LINK you could send your buyers.. to request feedback.,. is that still avaliable????

 

 

Please any helpful info would be  much appreciated =)

I communicate with ALL my customers, very politely consistently. I can't get non-pays to communicate with me! And "item not as described"? Read my feedack. Shipping time? I ship within 2 biz days ALWAYS. And what makes the most frustrated....Shipping & handling charges. Unless it's international, I don't charge handling fees. and all items are FREE SHIPPING unless they weigh more than10 pounds then it's calculated to actal. 

I got an email from ebay Tuesday congratulating me for being so close to becomming a power seller...yay....the next day they recorded a return due to "Did not fit" as "not as described" and my Seller Dashboard went from near the top to just BELOW STANDARD!!!

I spent 2 days and almost 3 hours fighting it. The return reason was RIGHT THERE in black &  white yet it took 3 supervisors and an act of God to get it removed. That was yesterday. I was also told it would stay "below standard" until their system updates every Thursday. Ok....not happy but TODAY is Thursday. Did it change? Nope. I called again today....the 2 + hours yesterday meant nothing, the "manager" didn't do a thing she promised. Today I insisted they send me a verification email saying its removed. They did but now I have to see my Seller Dashboard" showing below standard for SEVEN MORE DAYS.

8 months ago I had a customer who asked if she could return an item and me pay return postage. I referred her to my return policy. She gave negative feeback and said the ALUMINUM CAN she purchased smelled like smoke. I received 2 neutrals for the same thing, smeled like smoke. Yet Eaby refused to remove the inaccurate feedback. That was 8 months ago & STILL makes me so darn mad! EVERY single listing I have ever had clearly states "**Items come from a smoke free home ~ however packing/shipping materials and occasional items may be donations from friends/family who do smoke** IN RED LETTERS. 

Would Ebay help me withThis DSR we have no control over, cannot know who (if anyone) is marking us badly is bad enough, being lied to and forced to look bad for EBAY'S MISTAKES is infuriating!

SO FRUSTRATED!

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....

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?

I found these in a bag of vintage jewelry I bought from a thrift store. I have not been able to find any info on what they were used for. They are much heavier than a stick or lapel pin and are very short so it doesn't seem like they would be hat pins-I know nothing really about hat pins except for they are usually taller than stick/lapel pins. They both have similar wear on the bottom so they definitely stuck in something! Any information or directions to point me in I would appreciate! Thank You!

Napier necklace - Is it in the Napier Book?

Hey everyone

I like to believe I'm not crazy or stupid. I'm attaching 2 screenshots of an item I was watching for a few days and then happily became the highest bidder. Then, in the last 20 seconds, my bid is no longer the highest. All right, a little action! So, I go higher once, get outbid immediately. Ooook, this guy's fast.

I bid again and higher! Immediately outbid again! DARN! I lost the bidding war. Then, I look at the bidding history and am realizing, there is obviously a total flaw or error in this entire thing. This person had automatic bidding set up. 5 days, FIVE DAYS, before I ever made a bid and not once did their bid ever show up until the very end This is complete garbage and I tried clicking every "report member" and "contact us" to no avail, as is usual on eBay.

Take a look and please let me know how I can get in contact with someone about this and get the **bleep** product I obviously deserve as I didn't violate or manipulate any rules!

Thanks guys!

Error with AutoBid

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.

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).

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.

The 2 pins came in a bag of Jewelry Items from a thrift store. I have not been able to figure out what they were used for~hat pins? The bottoms of each are worn off at the same depth so they were clearly inserted into something able to hold their weight. They are solid (not hollow) and are much heavier than any other lapel or stick pin I've had.

Hope someone can help Me. 

my rating has just come up as BELOW standered. I am concerned of having issues now with ebay - I am reading all these things- but to not understand why i got this rating...

 

I am assuming when so many orders come in and are sold- and so little people leave feedback, somehow that counts towards the ratings- and 

 

 also.. when someone emailed me an ask me to cancel a transaction i have done that with out issue- does that count against me in the long run too???

 

 

 

its showing 4.93% had defects....

but i dont think anyone contacted ebay-- i wasnt made aware of it- 

and when people contacted me about any issue with a problem of an item i fixed the problem -with them,

 

I am getting an orange flag icon gives you a heads up about something that could impact your seller performance standing, and you should work to improve your performance in that area.

 

any once- can you please tell me what i can do to fix this???

 

Also someone said at one time. there was an email with a LINK you could send your buyers.. to request feedback.,. is that still avaliable????

 

 

Please any helpful info would be  much appreciated =)

This hasn't affected the functionality of TurboLister for me, but I wanted to mention it in case it is the beginnings of a bigger problem down the road.  This has been happening since late last year.  That is when I first noticed it, at least. 

 

When I check for TurboLister updates, the program notifies me that there are updates and shows the popup window that indicates which type of update is available and calculates the update's filesize.

 

Here is a screenshot I took a few minutes ago:

 

TLUpdateGlitch.jpg

 

Note in the image above that the filesize of the Data Updates is estimated to be 112.75 Megabytes in size.   That is the glitch I'm seeing.

 

Each time I check for updates, the Data Updates estimated filesize grows, but the apparent size of the actual downloads stays the same.  The ACTUAL size of the download that resulted when I clicked "Install Now" from the screencap above was only approximately 190 kilobytes.  And each time I check for updates, the estimated Data Updates filesize grows larger.  When I checked last week, the estimated filesize was around 80 Megabytes, and around 50 Megabytes the time previous to that ... etc.

 

I beleive the glitch must reset when I install the latest version of TurboLister.    I remember one update during the holidays that was showing Data Updates in the 300 Megabyte range, yet the actual update size was again measured in hundreds of kilobytes instead.  The new version appears to have the same glitch, however, because the estimated filesize has continued to increase since I installed it.

 

I'm using a Windows 7 computer, with all service packs and updates, including the latest Internet Explorer and its updates.  I did see the forum post about disbling SSL 3.0, and I did that months ago.  If there are any other system specs that are needed, please let me know.

Collectors love sunken treasure, and this three-coin collection is a virtual history of ships lost at sea over the last 400 years! The first coin is an 8 Reales Spanish colonial “Cob,” hand-struck over 390 years ago and recovered from the Tortugus shipwreck. This coin is among the first ever to be recovered from the deep ocean by a remotely operated vehicle. It’s struck in 93% silver between 1556 and 1622 (dates and mints vary), and grades Shipwreck Effect by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The second coin in the collection is an 1858 U.S. Half Dollar struck at the New Orleans Mint and recovered from the SS Republic, which went down in a hurricane shortly after the Civil War. It grades Shipwreck Effect by NGC.

The third coin is a new legal-tender British Silver 50 Pence struck by The Royal Mint using silver from the SS Gairsoppa, sunk by a German torpedo in World War II. It grades Mint State-69 (MS69) by NGC. Assembled by Odyssey Marine Exploration, your set comes in a custom wood case and includes special bonus items valued at over $385: a ceramic ink pot from the SS Republic, a copy of Lost Gold of the Republic, a National Geographic DVD, and a copy of the book: Bottles of the Deep. Secure your instant shipwreck collection now!

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?

 

Thanks,

Bill

Vintage Pin ~ unknown markings 1) A Small Round Open Circle Stamped on backside of bottom bow ribbon. The Bow looks similar to me like some bow brooches by Coro. 2) Raised Worn Signiture or image on the top side of the hanging "charm". It appears to me to possibly start with an "J" and the more I look at it I start to think I see a paint brush or a rose stem... I do not have a good picture of the raised marking. 

I was also wondering if the charm is wood or plastic? I tried searching "curve" and had no luck. It looks like a road sign or maybe a trophy???

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 imagine you have gone through this before, I have done a search but could not find the advice I am looking for, advice from the experienced sellers, as I am certainly not. I guess I am naive and uninformed (I'll say it before anybody else does :smileywink:).

With a 100% feedback, all positives except one almost year old neutral, I was all happy thinking all my buyers were happy, to now find out that in one month I have 2 2 stars and 2 3 stars in Not as Described. I learned how to run reports and found the transactions, the buyers had left me great comments, happy, thanks, etc.. so I am confused.

I know that no matter how honest and detailed your listings are, and no matter how many pictures, buyers might disagree with your opinions, that's why I always send a note to buyers to contact me if any problem. These buyers never contacted me, left great comments then NAD?

I read that some buyers leave low ratings by mistake, but we can not contact them to find out. This is crazy...

 

Bottom line, how do you deal with this issue?  I don't mind rules, but I guess Ebay didn't take in consideration the damage irrational buyers can do..

international bidders being blocked

I sold my broken mobile phone for parts.  I clearly stated this in the auction.  Buyer requested a refund that item did not match description.   I offered a partial refund for buyer to keep item.  Buyer declined offer and opened a case.  Before I was able to accept the return,  Ebay had already given the buyer a full refund.  I have had no luck contacting ebay customer service. I don't have a phone at the moment,  and can't seem to locate the online "contact us" that I have used in the past. 

 

 

So am I screwed out of my phone + shipping + time here?  Or do I still have a shot at getting my item back?

i received a thread from ebay member

Sometimes EABY is a joke. I let a negative feeback with all of the law (from EBAY) to a seller. and ebay removed. I called EBAY and they have no valid explanations. EBAY breaks its own rules by the strong. FEEBACK DEPARTAMENT without explanation when it suits you. They never pick the phone, and when they hear you name they put you on hold for 30 minutes with a nice music, again and again because they have no answer. And the next day, the same music, after 2 days calling, they got mercy but not a valid explanation for the removed of the FEEDBACK. Some seller have connections inside the FEEBACK DEPARTAMENT.

Selling discussion

I am listing a HP photosmart C4680 printer for the starting price of $30, but now the bids are up to almost $70. I was a little worried because looking elsewhere I could easily find similar newer models on Amazon for less, so I just don't see why someone would bother to spend that on my printer, unless maybe they were hoping to get it free somehow. I've been scammed before. Doing a quick google search, I am the only one on ebay or Amazon that is selling this exact model NIB for way under $200, and many times I see things selling on ebay for way more than I think they are worth, ya know, I am not some printer guru, so maybe its a super special printer, but I doubt it. 

 

Also, I got a question asking if I had pictures of the sealed tape, top and bottom, and a picture of the inside of the box? I stated in my listing that it was never opened, so I don't know why he thought I would have pictures of the inside of the box. What would he use that for anyway? I think he is just trying to verify that it is infact NIB, but is there some way for him to use my pictures against me in a scam?

 

Sorry If I am worrying too much, I am just a small seller who can't afford big losses, so if anyone can tell me if I should be wary that would be great.

 

Thanks!

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 ?

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.

Seller feedback for buyer

I won a bid on ebay, but after winning the bid, I read some part of the description that wasn't really cool, so I pleaded with the seller and the item was cancelled. This happened weeks ago.
Fast forward to yesterday: I wanted paying for an item and I mistakenly paid for the above canceled item(on my ebay canceled items still display as unpaid items for some time)... So I quickly mailed the seller, even went to the extent of calling him(got the fone number from ebay), the 'seller' is actually a company, so I had to pass through a lot of protocols b4 I could speak with the right person... So @the end my money was refunded.
Now the interesting part:
I was just browsing through my paypal account history and behold, the paypal transaction for
the cancelled item shows: SHIPPED with a tracking number, and the item is already enroute.
I've mailed the seller but no reply yet.
