Hello Folks,

 

I recently purchased a rather large set of pink depression glass goblets and sherbet glasses.  The pieces have a panel optic shape in the blank and a beautiful etched design.  The etch design consists of floral band of roses and a tilted basket with flowers tumbling out.  The water goblets stand about 7" tall and the sherbet glass is approximately 3 1/4" tall.

Does anyone know the manufacturer and pattern name for this design?  I strongly suspect Tiffin as the maker, but I've been unable to find this design in any of many glass books.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Hello All,

 

I recently came across this interesting Laughing Buddha figurine. It appears to be made of heavy, amber colored resin or glass. It measures approximately 2 3/4" tall and 3 1/2" wide.  It came in a fancy box with cloth lining.  The inside of the box has a plaque with Chinese writing.  A plastic coated card was also in the box with Chinese writing.

Can anyone translate the writing for me?  I suspect the figurine isn't worth much, possibly made for the tourist trade.  But it looks interesting with the fancy box and all.  Any information about the piece would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

This Crown Devon Fieldings creamer is clearly marked, "Sailors Farewell" but, the poem and picture are the "Sailors Return".  I haven't been able to find any information on the "Sailors Return".  I have found a few pieces of the 'Farewell', on line but, nothing on the 'Return'.  The creamer measures, 3.25" tall, to the opening X 4.5" from outside of spout to outside of handle X 2.5" dia. base.  Any information is much appreciate, thank you.Picture 23849.jpgPicture 23851.jpgPicture 23857.jpg

This was a gift and I am no expert so i thought I would ask. Photos are of coach bag and the info I have researched points to it being a fake but wanted second opinion. I have read that if it has the CC on the outside it wont on the inside. Thanks in advance for any info or advice. The number on the inside is M1K-6047.

Hoping someone recognizes the logo etched on the side of this 9.5" glacial glass plate.

So this bracelet is stumping me. Tee construction feels right for art deco era, the metal is a potmetal type, has a faint silver plating, possibly rhodium, and theres lots of tiny rose cut marcasites. The clasp is foldover type, so not much help there.

Whats throwing me is the condition. All the marcasites are there (they do not appear to be prong set, but with marcasites this small Im not surprised), and they really sparkle. Other than a tiny bit of pitting to the metal on the back, the condition is really, really good. As if it was never worn, or even moved lol.

What do y'all think?

So I'm looking for advice on selling a large photo negative collection I purchased from a local auction house.  It came in three large crates filled with slides from the 60's through the 90's from various NYC photo and advertising agencies as well as thousands of unlabeled slides.  Most are of fashion models, black and white, many are of risque nudes or topless models and others are of NYC buildings graffitti etc.  Most of the the slides are in numbered or cataloged  sleves and various are labeled with the models name.   I would imagine 30 thousand slides would be conservative plus hundreds of black and **bleep**e photos.  Some signed others not.  Just from an hour looking though I got nowhere.  What is the best way to sell these??  As an entire collection??  Shipping would cost a fortune.

Anyone recognize this artist?


Hello All,

 

Maybe this post would be more appropriate in another group, but I sure do like the good results I get here, so here goes ...

I recently purchased this nice amethyst oil lamp.  The font has 9 panels with a rounded top.  The stem and base are also 9-sided.  The collar is old 2-line brass version.  If original to the lamp, the collar type would suggest the lamp was made pre-1876.  The lamp stands about 7 1/4" tall to the top of the collar and the base is approximately 3 3/4" wide.

Does anyone know the name of this lamp and/or the likely manufacturer.  To me, it has a Boston Sandwich look to it, but I haven't been able to find this lamp in any of my books.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any assistance the group can provide!

I got this piece today.  Saw it and just had to have it.  It is a bronze lizard or, more likely, a horny toad.  It is signed on the bottom, but it is really hard to make it out.  It has a bale so I think it is a pendant.  A really big, heavyIMG_8617.JPGIMG_8627.JPGIMG_8624.JPGIMG_8616.JPG pendant at 3 1/4" by 2 1/4".  It is really neat looking.

Hi! I'm not sure which board would be best to post this on, so I'm starting here. Any horse lovers here? I think I have a piece of horse tack that would fit at the front of the chest of a horse. It is leather, beaded Native American style, and has Mexican Alpaca silver buckles. Can anyone tell me anything about this? Do I have it right what it is? It measures 12 1/2" on the leather with the parts holding the buckles at the widest point. Here are the pictures.....

I posted this on the antique board with no responses so I am hoping someone here can help me out on this art nouveau style mirror.  I found another on another site just like it only in an ivory color.  It was described as French ivory/celluloid from 1915.   I know the colors of celluloid can vary so what I am mainly interested in knowing before listing is if it is actually an older piece and made of celluloid .  I am guessing it is judging by the patina, wear on the handle and style of the mirror glass.  It is about 4.75" long and the mirror diameter is about 2 3/8" in diameter.  Thanks in advance for any help.

GLASS: Fenton Mulberry Beaded Melon Creamer?

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

 

The most irritating thing about internet pages are the video advertisements that start up unbidden whenever you open the page.  Usually these ads involve screeching music or grating voiceovers, which provoke nothing but hatred as the viewer scrolls up and down the page to find where the stupid ad is stuck so he can turn it off (and vow NEVER to buy that product/service).  EBay in its complete lack of wisdom was destined to employ these ads eventually, and now they have, only with a typical eBay twist--you can't do a "mouse-over" enlargement to see the item in the auction without the video ad breaking through on top of what you are trying to see.  View the screen shot below to see what happened when I tried to get a closer look at a cover in an auction that had an auto-video ad embedded in it--

Hello Folks,

Are there any Boehm porcelain figurine collectors in the group?  If so ...

I recently purchased this porcelain sculpture made by the artisans at Boehm Studios. It must be quite scarce, as I can only find one other example pictured anywhere online.  The dealer who had this other example referred to it as "Trotting Foxhound".  The sculpture is certainly a wonderful rendition of a tri-colored foxhound, but I was wondering if anyone knew if this was the correct name of the sculpture.  I'd also be interested in knowing approximately when it was made.

The figurine is rather large and stands about 8 3/8" tall to the top of the tail. It measures approximately 10" long from the tip of his nose to the back of his right rear foot. It has a glossy finish.  The underside of the hound's belly is hand signed with a Boehm script signature.

The hand signature on this piece suggests to me that it may be from the 1950's or 1960's, but I'd like some input on this.  I'm also thinking that very few were likely produced.  Does anybody have a Boehm porcelain reference that mentions this figurine?  Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can provide!

This is completely out of my experience, but when I saw it, I had to have it. $7.99 at Goodwill was a no-brainer! :smileyvery-happy: Can anyone tell me anything about this neat primitive looking horse? What kind of legs would it have had? It's about 18" from snout to rear end.

Primitive Painted Terracotta Horse

I've been looking at thrift stores for Barbie dolls--sifting through the ones that have totally mangled hair, or ruined outfits, and plucking out the good ones or ones that may only need a hair reroot. In doing so, I stumbled upon this gorgeous doll, stamped 1976 Mattel on the back of the head. However, I am unsure if the dress/ensemble she came in is the same year/the one she originally was sold with. The tag inside reads 'official Barbie fashion' and is white and pink.  Her hips are able to twist left and right, and her legs are 'squishy' and somewhat bendy. Though, the year seems a bit late to be a TNT and so does the face. Below are pictures of the Barbie and her dress.

ID'ing a Barbie and dress she's in?

I have been trying to find this logo forever.  Is there a forum that might be able to help?  Or maybe a website?

Appreciate any direction!  Maybe it's even a foreign language!!

LOGO Board?

It wasn't working on the 27th and I still can't get it to work. I can't list anything or revise what I already have for sale. 

Technical Issues discussion

I bought a 2 pound item.  Paid $6 flat rate shipping (listed as "Standard" shipping in listing).  Seller shipped Priority Mail, 2 pound rate.

 

Item is not as described, seller accepted return request, out pops a First Class Return Service label.

 

Just curious if there's a glitch with return labels or if anyone knows why this happened. 

 

I guess I'll be spending my morning on the line with ebay getting the label switched up.

Selling discussion

We used to get a ton of sales from UK, Canada and Australia.  Since the Global Shipping Progranm started, that business has all but died. 

 

The only reason we are so vested in eBay is because of the international exposure.

 

There was a story in the UK's Guardian newspaper about Chinese sellers not having to pay VAT tax.  This story got all the way to eBay management, and suddenly UK listings were getting a lot of exposure.

 

Now it's American sellers reaslly getting slammed. Views and sales are way, way down.

Why?

Because the Chinese pay NO shipping at all for their knockoff junk thanks to treaties and deals with Donahoe's cronies.

Because the Chinese have flooded the site with utter, utter trash.

Because buyers see eBay and they ASSOCIATE it with bad buying experiences, when they order from China and the item turns out to be cheap garbage or completely the wrong size/style/etc.

 

We demand equal footing and exposure.  This is disgusting.  Do something about it, eBay.

I would really like to thank all the people that have purchesed from my store.Is there a way to send a mass email ?

Selling discussion

I made a purchase for $38, it shows that the item was sold for $48.  I think this may be a scheme for eBay to make for money on listing.  They tell you to look at "sold" listings when listing your own stuff to get an idea of what things are selling for.  Could this be a way for eBay to make you overprice and have to relist?  Now with this no more relisting for free, it seems we're being scammed by eBay.....anyone else notice this going on?  Very sneaky....

Bidding & Buying question

      I just received a neutral feedback regarding a 45 rpm record that I sold. The feedback states that I claim the record to be in VG+ condition and that it looks good but is deceiving. In fact, I graded the record as VG- which is a huge difference.I contacted ebay and they wouldn't take care of it.

    They stated that my customer is enitled to his opinion. I believe that this goes beyond that. His feedback is stating an untruth, regardless of his opinion or intent. I know that eBay can be less han helpful to we sellers, Still, I am bewildered as to how they believe this should be allowed to stand. Anyone have any experience with this kind of situation? Thanks

I moved to of my items to the saved tab as soon as I seen them I paid for both but I still have a no big thing on my side every time I bid it says I have unpaid items but I do not have any unpaid items how do I fix it I get excited and want to bid on something and I know it's going to tell me I can't but I try to anyway help

unpaid and can't bid

I'm a newbie seller. I used the shipping estimator tool to calculate UPS cost to buyer. Buyer paid estimated cost. However, actual cost is lower than amount buyer paid. I found that out when printing label via PayPal.

 

**I now know to weigh & measure box before sending to get actual cost.**

 

What do you sellers do? Is it usual to refund amount buyer paid that is greater than actual cost? I did not say I would in my listing. However, I voluntarily did refund a previous buyer already because I felt I'm selling for a fixed price and shipping is above and beyond.

 

I am asking because I don't know what is customary and I want to do the right and moral thing.

 

 

Also, how do I generate a packing list for the box that reflects the sale as shown?

 

Thank you for all input.

How Do Defects Work?

Selling question

I'm looking for some advice from more experienced sellers.

 

I'm selling my wife's iPhone 4 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-iPhone-4-8GB-White-nTelos-Smartphone-/161651164056?ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT) and some odd things are happening with the listing.

 

I had three eBay members message me asking for the ESN...all three of them had zero feedback points. After doing some research, I let them know that I was not willing to shre the ESN (or whatever it is called now) due to the risk of cloning, etc.

 

The phone has 27 bids, and they're all from 5 eBay members who have feedback scores of 0-2. Two of them are new accounts. After doing some reading, I have learned that many sellers have had folks like this not pay.

 

Last fall, I sold my iPhone 4S to a US address, but it ended up being forwarded to Ukraine and the buyer insisted that the phone had a counterfeit screen (iut did not) and gave me my first negative feedback since I joined eBay in 1998.

 

I'm not an electronics retailer--I'm just trying to sell our family phones that we have upgraded out of. Should I cancel my listing? Any tips on how to sell an iPhone on eBay without so much sketchiness?

Shipping & Returns question

I have had problems in the past when I create a listing sometimes the shipping charges dissappear. It will still give the shipping option to the buyer but it will give it to them for free.

For example I had a pair of pants listed with shipping for $3.76 First-Class but Priority was listed as free.

You would think a buyer would see that there are charges for the other shipping option(s) and know there must be a mistake but they go for the free option.

 

This brings me to my question: I had a buyer open an account yesterday (03/29/15) and they bought a pair of pants from me. The same pair I mention above. They chose the "free" Priority shipping option.

Im suspicious of this buyer for a few reasons: the user name they chose is just a bunch of random letters with periods. They chose the obvious error "free" shipping option. The same day they opened an account they made a purchase from me.

 

I feel like they opened their account just to make a purchase from me. Is it so they can leave me negative feedback when I call them on the shipping charges? Is it so they can leave me negative feedback for some other reason? Is this a buyer on my blocked list trying to get around it?

 

What should I do? Refund them their money? Ask for the additional shipping? Its not even about the money so much as I feel like there are ulterior motives at work. Like I am being manipulated. Is there a way I could ask these questions to the buyer without causing a problem?

 

Heres another question: can I include in my Terms and Conditions section "I reserve the right to refuse service" or something along those lines?

 

I would appreciate any help, advice, or information anyone has.

Thank you

Suspicious Buyer--what can I do?

Hi , What does it mean on your seller page where it says "Active listing 1 to 25 of 42?

That is so confusing, are the rest of the listings even being shown?

Thanks for any help.

My Account discussion

I've been buying and selling a long time on eBay. I know my way around the system, more or less.

 

If I open an INR and the seller provides tracking and closes it and I then get a brick in a box, can I open a SNAD because I got a brick and not a box of dolls?

 

I have every reason to believe this seller is a scam artist, at this point. It's about a $50 order, and the seller is giving me every excuse in the book including "flu" and "her roommate moved out ad took them with her."

 

Bidding & Buying discussion

Is there any way to refine the search critera?  I've been trying to find a way to limit my searches but no matter what I do, I don't seem to be getting anywhere.  Is it possible to put quotes around words that will restrict the search to only those words?  Or some other character?  And I'm assuming there isn't a way to eliminate certain things, i.e. I'm looking for a book but I don't want the paperback version.  Can I say "Hardback" or "Not paperback" in some way?  I'm also searching for a particular book by an author but I keep getting other books by that author also, which I then have to wade through.  It's very frustrating and any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy,

 

Two questions: I have a case still open for a NPB it has not closed but is showing as available to do a 2nd chance offer. Even though I know they buyer is not going to pay (he emailed and pretty much said he could not pay) I should still wait until it closes. 

 

Also it shows 5 other items that are "available" for  2nd chance offers, even though all have been paid for and some even delivered already. So what is that about?

 

Thanks!

Hi all~ I returned a DVD per the seller's policy (TERRIBLE seller, I see now--couple dozen complaints have rolled in since my purchase!!) and when I check the tracking it shows USPS left an attempted delivery notice because there was not a "secure location" to leave the package. That was several days ago and the USPS policy is to return to sender if not picked within 15 days. Then what? This seller is not exactly communicative, I don't feel hopeful he'll pick up the package, so then what recourse do I have? Thanks for your help!!!

Shipping & Returns question

I like to print out the listings for some of the items I buy on ebay - gives me a record of description and price. There used to be a print function within the list where you could print part or all of the listing. I cannot find that function anymore. 

 

Am I blind or has ebay lost that function - another great ebay idea like hiding the full description. 

My Account discussion

I got an item i want to now return because it didnt come with everything as described. I contacted the seller about the return and they said they were fine with the return and refund. I offered a request and it seems like they havnt accepted the request becaus everytime i see the request details it says they will email me when they accept it and i still have not recieved that email. Im wondering if i have to wait for him to accept the return or if i should just ship it out now?? Will i get scammed and not be refunded if i send the item back without getting the acceptance email???

Return question

Looking for help identifying this EAPG celery dish. It is 11" long, 4 3/4" wide, 2" tall and the glass is about five sixteenths of an inch thick. It is very heavy and the edges are sharp and crisp.

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

Seller is requesting a combined discount if she's the winner on all 3 items she's bid on. Never done this. One  item I can put with another for less shipping. The other 2 are heavy and already have higher shipping costs-$18 and $18.

Is combined shipping an incentive to get the sale of all three items? Do I ask for lower shipping to get the sales? or should it follow practical lines-it will cost me $18.00 to ship each item. What's the usual practice? $30.00 for all 3 ?. But then, depending on what the end price is, I'll be out. Currently one of the heavy items is at $15, the other is at .99.

I don't send an invoice and have seen directions for fixing the shipping when sending the invoice. Can I credit her paypal account for the shipping of the one item I can combine with the heavier one? Looking for help on the sense of the practice and then how to do it.

Thank you

I am looking at some hair extensions on here and am thinking about buying them for my prom.

 

I found a vendor that is offering FREE expedited shipping from china with the estimated delivery dates being between April 1-6, but when I went to ask a question in reference to the extensions, I saw the shipping say 13-25 days with expedited shipping.

Getting Started question

 I ordered original flavor nicotine gum, and received mint flavor. I started a "return for refund", printed the shipping label, and shipped the package off to the seller (package still in transit per tracking number). Seller contacted me, and said that they would send me the correct gum, if I cancelled the return. I'm fine with this, but what if the seller never sends it? Should I close the return? If so, what is the procedure for this? Or, does the seller have to close it? Under the seller link for the item sold, I know there is an option to issue refund. Is there also an option to issue replacement? Thanks
