Good Morning! This blue glass bowl measures 8 1/2" wide and 3 3/4" tall. It has a vertical rib design, and painted flowers and leaves w/ gold trim. There is considerable wear to the gold trim and plenty of scratches on the foot, it has an "old" feel to it. The rim and base remind me of EAPG, but I haven't found anything researching that end. I've also looked at Bohemian glass, but the decoration looks more elaborate than this bowl. Any suggestions?


Thanks for any help!

Ever been researching items to determine whether or not to list here or elsewhere, and decide on a suitable price, then come across sellers that you just want to penguin smack?


Penguin Smack


I came across one about a half hour ago when I was deciding whether this microcassette transcriber I got at the Salvation Army today would be going here or Amazon.  Turns out it will be listed here for up to 2 listing cycles at least, with an asking price of $150, a little above the average for its condition.


Well, during my research, I saw one listing that sold that was a lot of 4 of these, pretty much same condition, at just a little over what my price is going to be.  I was like, "Dude?  Why in Great Spirit's name did you throw away a potential $450 there?  What posessed you to just decide to bundle them all together in one lot instead of parting them out with each one at the price you sold all four at?  It is not like it would have been a tremendously heavy amount of extra labor to deal with them individually, especially considering how much you would have pulled in."


Yeah yeah.  I know, his product, his choice how to handle them.  But still, surely there should be some common sense in play here when dealing with that kind of scratch.  And yes, I do feel justified in going all Kumi on him...



Anyway, that's my little amusing grumble.  My only other grumble is that I just now discovered this model and so didn't know about that lot of 4 in time to snap them up and flip myself.  Smiley Happy  Anyone else have similar facepalmers to share?


Now, back to processing todays finds for listing tomorrow...

On Derpy Sellers

I'm posting for two reasons... to see if anyone has experienced this and has any suggestions and... as a warning to sellers about the eBay cancellation software, so they can hopefully avoid the mess I'm in right now...



1. Buyer buys multiples of three items. Hasn't paid yet. Requests combined invoice. I send an invoice in the morning as soon as I see the request (buyer is three time zones ahead of me).


2. Later in the day I get an email from the buyer requesting a combined invoice (which I've already sent) and saying the buyer made a mistake and wants to change one of the orders (buyer ordered too much).


3. I'm happy to change the order but I can't change the invoice because the buyer's request to change quantity 6 to quantity 2 is more than the shipping charge, and eBay won't let us add a seller discount that's greater than the quoted shipping price.


4. Buyer is familiar with cancelling and re-ordering (buyer mentioned it in email), I uncombine the items and send a cancel for the one item and get the order ready to go while I wait for the cancel, the opportunity to reinvoice, and for buyer payment.


5. Buyer doesn't accept cancel. I had a feeling from the email that the order might be urgent, so I package it all except for the shipping label. It's now the weekend and I have some urgent business and won't be back until Monday night. Store has been on vacation since Thursday night.


6. Saturday morning, I have to go, still no acceptance of the cancellation and I'm perplexed, I'm about to send the buyer another email to make sure everything's okay and she's seen the cancellation request and as I'm doing that the order goes through (she pays), so I abort the email.


7. Since I can't re-do the invoice once it's paid, I'll have to do a partial refund through PayPal. I send an email that I'll refund Monday night when I'm back, then I ship.


8. Monday evening, I'm back, I check my email and it says there's a case/request in the resolution center for Item Not Received and I think, "Huh"?


I look, there's only one case, for the item for this buyer that I shipped Saturday. Today is Monday. The listing has two-business-day handling and it was paid Saturday.


9. I click on the case and it's not an INR case, it's the pending cancellation. What's up with this?


•  I sent the cancellation request before the buyer paid. Buyer didn't accept but decided to pay. Now I discover why... even though the items were uncombined and I sent a cancellation for ONLY the one item, eBay sent cancellation for all the items combined. Buyer probably freaked since she didn't want to re-do the whole order, only the one that was a mistake. So, I can't blame buyer for paying for all of it, if she needs it quickly, Redoing the entire order would take too long (she would have to look up three listings again, work out the quantities again, it's tedious).


•  I assumed that the cancellation would "expire" since the buyer decided to pay rather than cancel. It didn't. Not only are all three purchases bundled together in the cancellation (even though they were uncombined when the cancel was sent), but the cancellation is still pending.



I have shipped this item. What happens if the buyer accepts the cancel? Will eBay automatically refund the entire purchase? Buyer purchased nine items in total (6 + 2 + 1).



Sorry, it's so long, but to summarize. Here are my questions...


1. I requested a cancel for one purchase out of three different multiple-quantity purchases and yet eBay sent cancels for all of them as though they were combined (they weren't). Does this always happen? If a buyer buys several items and wants to cancel one, does eBay always force the buyer to accept a cancellation for all of them? If so this is a real problem, because my buyers sometimes buy from 20 or 30 different listings and might want to change only ONE item and will not be willing to re-buy that many items.


2. Is it normal for eBay to send an email message that there's an INR case but then you go to the Resolution Center, there's only one case/request and it's for a Cancellation (not INR)? If so, the email notification is wrong.


3. Is it normal for a cancellation to be still pending if the buyer changes his/her mind and pays for the item after the cancel request is sent?


4. And this is the big one... now that the buyer paid and I shipped, what happens if the buyer accepts the cancel? Am I out the money for the entire 9 orders? Will eBay automatically refund all of it? I've shipped what the buyer requested.



Also... since I didn't know this was going to be such a mess, I promised the buyer a partial refund Monday night, but if I do that and then the buyer accepts the cancel, then again... I'm out the money. I want to keep my promise, but I'm worried about that pending cancel.


Has anyone had a situation like this? I'm not sure what to do. Is there a way to retract the cancel request? It's less than three days since it was sent.

This is a recent piece, sponge coral and maybe turquoise. Definitely sterling.  The hang tag is a square piece of shell with a V cut through it with a laser.

I picked this up at an estate sale quite some time ago, along with a couple of really neat Native American baskets. Was going to list it, then while doing some research online realized that I have no idea how to price it, and more importantly, whether or not it is old and actually Native American.


It has a decent patina, good work on the carving/design, and is certainly elk horn. When I search for Hupa or California elk-horn purse, very similar items appear on google etc. but I've noticed that a lot of them, most of them actually, have larger slots in them, presumably to fit the dentalium shells.  Other than that, this piece seems to fit the bill for being a purse.


This piece is about 4 1/2" long, 1 1/2" across, and has a very thin slice of horn/antler glued into one end. The string is just for a tag I attached to help keep track of when/where I got it.20150801_221806.jpg

i bought two turquoise 9I think this is turquoise, I don't know, I am still trying to learn about it) rings at an outdoor antique show today.  This is one, and I have now clue about the "hallmark" in it.  I believe it is Navajo because of the constructions.  The gold overlay is rosy in color....it is stamped "sterling" inside and was tested as such.  Please give me your opinions on it- and maybe the stone is glass?  I don't know.  Thanks.

Navajo? Turquoise? ring hallmark help- TIA

I got this from my friend along with the Isaac Maimon I asked about yesterday - they were both in the same storage unit he'd won at a auction. He owns a furniture store & bought the unit because of the beautiful, high end furniture that was in the unit. That same high end furniture is what made me agree to buy the Maimon piece even though I couldn't see the signature, and this piece.

This is another large piece, but not as big as the Maimon, and appears to be a pastel but I can't tell even with a magnifying glass.

It also appeared to not be signed until I saw what looks like initials (bottom photo).


Does anyone recognize the art or the initials - if that is what they are? Is there a way to tell if it's a real pastel without removing it from the frame? If not I will open the back enough to feel it; I think it's worth the gamble just because of the type of home it came out of.


I appreciate any help if it's possible.

 I have always assumed it to be faux turquoise and a silver plated alloy. No markings.  Before I list it, is there any chance it might be more than I think?  Maybe an older piece?  I am and I've had it for a while now. Thank you for taking time to share your wisdom!

From what I understand, they have names - does anyone happen to know this one? Possibly a year it was produced?

This came from an estate sale.  It is marked STER and it is sterling with a real, light cream pearl in his mouth.  He's on a sterling box chain, but since there were other box chains the same size at the estate it may not be original to the pendant.  The mark looks to me like an "S" inside of a crown.  Maybe it's not a crown, but the general shape of a crown?  Definitely an S though inside something.  I love the way his tail wraps around to create the bale.    Any idea what the mark is?  I've found him listed a couple other places but the sellers don't appear to know the hallmark either.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Shipping & Returns question

My friend found this in a storage unit he won at a auction & sold it to me (he only deals in furniture). I bought it because it looks like it was done by a well known artist whose work all have ladies in this style in them. - I bought it even though it was too big to fit in my car & I had to take it out of the frame It has to measure at least 36" x 48" - it covered my whole back seat!) and even though it had slid behind the matting so I couldn't see the name before removing it, - I bought it because I was sure I knew the work & would recognize the name once I saw it.


BUT I DON'T!! (aagghh!)


Can someone please tell me who this signature belongs to & if it is a known artist?  The piece is a limited edition; it is also signed in pencil 174 / 275.

PS - Is there a way to tell if this is a litho, serigraph or reg print? The artwork has a "feel" to it - different than a reg print that would feel just like the paper it is on.

I appreciate any help.

This piece measures approximately 11  7/8" tall, 4" across the top, 3  1/2" across the bottom and 6  1/2" at the widest part in the middle.

Anyone else having this issue???? When people bid on your items, when viewed on your phone app it is showing retracted bids even when you havent gotten a retracted bid on your item? I have seen others complain about this too and are now accusing sellers of schilling their auctions but its not true and it is hurting sales for good honest sellers. This shows up on my all the time and sometimes will show 4 bids with 20+ retracted bids when I never got an email or even have actual retraced bids. heres a perfect example. i have attached a pic. I just got a bid on one of the items I am selling. I got the notification and checked my phone instantly. It shows 1 bid and one retracted bid already but the bid is still there and nothing got retracted? HOW CAN WE GET EBAY TO FIX THIS! Ive contacted them and they never understand what I am talking about but it makes sellers look bad because people say we are schilling our auctions which isn't the case at all.

I don't even know if this ring is turquoise, but I am guessing if it is, it is Navajo in construction.  The gold overlay is rosy, and it is stamped "sterling" inside and tests as such.  Does anyone know anything about this ring, including the hallmarks?  I am trying to learn about turquoise, but it hasn't been easy.  Smiley Happy

I had an auction going that ended yesterday and I am having some trouble with the buyer. I included free shipping as one of the stipulations of the auction and clearly stated the item ships within the US only. Not only does the buyer live in England but now they want me to ship the item to Nigeria!  I have included the chain of events below.





1. The auction was for a PS4 console, a PS4 controller, and one game, and ended yesterday with a winning bid of 420.00




2. I soon after received a message from the buyer asking for a money request from Paypal.




 3. I then sent the buyer a money request from Paypal which included the shipping costs to have the item sent to England. The total came to 499.85.




4.The buyer did not respond to either request directly. Instead I received the messages below.

I want the item dispatched to my nephew in west africa as am presently out of the UK and would be travelling to Nigeria in the next few days to see my nephew due to some family reasons. I sincerely hope you can assist me in dispatching the item over there so it would be convenient for me to receive the item when I get there.

Shady Buyer

Can someone please steer me in the right direction with this ginger jar or decipher the mark. Any help greatly appreciated.



Collectibles & Art discussion

Hello fellow eBayers! I'm having an issue with a seller, who keeps threatening me and cursing me out because he *thinks* I got an item from him for free. The item was a headset which did not come in working and then later on completely died. I opened up the case as the seller was ignoring my requests. I finally received a refund and with that came plenty of inappropiate behavior. Now I was simply wondering on how I should react to this. Should I report him? Post his username here so other buyers could be aware of him? Or simply ignore the messages?


His messages:


And just so others know, I have not lowered myself to his childish level.


EDIT- Since I can't seem to figure out how to follow up, you should know that he did this by sending me a persoal email, since he is most likely aware of what would happen if it was through eBay.

This fly reel was in with a bunch of vintage Shakespeare and Martin reels but it does not have a maker's name on it - only has JAPAN stamped on the mounting plate.  It is painted with what appears to be original flat black.  What would be the best way to title it so that some interested party might have at least a remote chance of finding it.  Thanks for your help.

I acquired this beautiful art glass piece the other day, and my thinking is that it is Murano because I believe I have seen the base done like this before from them.  Also, would this be considered a vase or compote or could it be either one?  How do I describe the ruffled part of the vase exactly?  It's not cased glass--it's a dark plum color with very dark plum edging, and it measures approximately 5" in height,  Help would be greatly appreciated.

I am just too uneducated about how these studio glass pieces are actually made.  I acquired this beauty the other day, and I would like for someone to explain to me the process used to create this piece.  Obviously part of it is apparently from a mold, but how do they get the stem twisted like that?  Is that done while the glass is still hot, and they just shape it at that point to get the design or is the stem added separately?  Also, what is the applied glass called that is around the edges referred to?  I believe the top knob or handle is probably applied separately, twisted, and then cut off.  I would have a field day watching someone actually make this piece from scratch!  Any discussion as to who might have made this and the process they used would be greatly appreciated.

shiping problem Item no: 161740729981

On June 09, 2015 I won the following auction for an Agilent 33250A waveform generator:


As you can see from the auction page, the seller accepts paypal and the purchase is claimed to be covered by the ebay/paypal buyer protection program.
Everyone should be able to see the BIG BOLD CLAIM: “ebay MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - Get the item you ordered or get your money back. Covers your purchase price and original shipping”.
So far so good. On 11 June, 2015 I send the payment and on 16.06.2015 the seller marks the item as shipped providing the DHL tracking number (961101085832).
To be clear I paid 22EUR for a DHL Paket International, which covers transport loss or damage up to 500EUR and typically delivers in my country in no more than four working days.
As I know this shipping service and I’m used to see the parcels moving quickly within the DHL network you will probably understand my surprise for not seeing any progress at all in the tracking system during the following week.

I don’t want to bore you with all the details so I’ll go straight to the point.
I asked the seller for an explanation many and many times and all I was able to get was a request to be patient and wait more time.
On July 2nd, tired of waiting, I filed a paypal dispute which was then escalated to a claim when DHL told me that they had no track of the parcel.
At this point, many of you will probably guess the outcome of the deep and careful paypal investigation. here it is, Paypal decided in favor of the seller and the claim was closed without any refund. What you won’t probably guess is the explanation given for such a resolution. Well, this is what popped up in my mailbox a few hours ago:

“Your seller has provided shipment tracking information in response to your claim.
We used the shipping company's online tracking service and found that it confirms delivery of the merchandise.
As a result, this case has been closed. We're happy we were able to help you resolve this issue.

Delivery of merchandise. Did you read that?

Now please go the DHL tracking page and tell me if you see anything about delivery.

The parcel is stuck on “The shipment has been posted by the sender at the retail outlet” since June 16.
Basically, it never left the DHL store.
How can they have a proof of delivery?
It’s clearly an error. There’s no other explanation.
That’s what I thought while reading the notification, but then I decided to call paypal and they managed to surprise me even further.

After waiting 10 minutes at the phone for a further investigation the answer was that they decided in favor of the seller because she was able to provide proof of shipment to my exact address.
Then the conversation evolved pretty much this way:
ME: I can create a shipping label in less than 5 minutes. How can you be sure that the seller really shipped the parcel? And how can you say that it’s been delivered when the tracking system shows no progress at all?
PAYPAL: That’s an automatically generated mail. We have our way to check the shipment.
ME: Can I have a copy of what you call proof of shipment?
PAYPAL: No, that’s not possible.
ME: Never mind. I paid for the item, not for the proof of shipment. As you can see, the parcel has not been received so I’m covered by the buyer protection program. Right?
PAYPAL: I’m sorry. The seller provided proof of shipment so there’s nothing we can do.
ME: What? And what about the protection program?
PAYPAL: I’m sorry, you can keep saying that, but there’s nothing we can do. We can’t get the money back from the seller.
And the conversation ended somehow…

How is all this even possible? Can they really do this?
Can PayPal lie about the proof of delivery and refuse to refund a frauded buyer while the whole web is filled with their claims regarding the protection program and the money-back guarantee?

Tons of brass buddha on eBay, issue is I can't find one just like it. 


It's thick brass, but hollow inside, filled with something like concrete to give it weight. I'm guessing its from the 60's. It was in an old estate.


Looks to be holding something, but what?


What is it worth? I'm guessing around $10.


Looks like it was cold when his sculpture was taken, lol.

Picked this LARGE jar or jug up Saturday at a local sale, do you all think it could possibly be American Southern redware or is it European?


It's partially glazed and splashed with what appears to be a greenish-brown alkaline-type glaze at top and to the interior, the rest is unglazed, but dressed in a very weathered white slip. The shoulders have an incised sine wave between two bands going all the way round.


Can you all help determine the possible age and origin?

American Southern Redware or European?

Hi there,


I'm a noob seller to eBay and have not yet listed any items yet (I'm still wanting to get all my settings perfect)  and given that I live in CA, I want to be sure I get all my tax tables set up. I've read the help files on this (http://pages.ebay.com/help/pay/checkout-tax-table.html#setting) but when I follow the instructions  I am unable to find the Account information and the tax table settings. Do I need to first list an item in order  to get to those features? Is the helpfile out of date? I'm losing my mind trying to figure this out.


AN UPDATE: Please don't suggest that I read the taxtable help pages that I already referenced above. I have read them, and followed them carefully. I am NOT able to see any option for "Buyer Preferences" when I go to My eBay > Account > Site Preferences (see screenshot).




Also, I'm not asking about business licenses, sellers permit,  CA tax or anything like that. I have all that info straigntened out. My question is PURELY mechanical - how in the heck do I activate my tax tables? Or do I need to first post my first item to get the sales tax table options to show up?


Thanks for the help!

I have a bracelet and a necklace that have the same clasp. They both have a heart with WG 14KT. Searching WG comes up with white gold, and this is clearly yellow gold. I was hoping the heart shape would direct me to a maker before I add this to a gold scrap lot. 


Any ideas, please?

Since Thursday, I have had problems listing a new product on eBay, with the site asking me to "select or create a shipping policy." And in the Paypal policy dropbbox, there is also a bunch of gobbledygook. I have cleaned my cache and cookies several times since then, and this is still the same result.

Australian parrot. Much prettier than a wombat.



New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I'm hoping someone will recognize the mark on these matte goldtone earrings.
I have looked in all the usual places but so far no luck.
It looks like 'PR------ES' and a copyright symbol, not sure if there's another word under that, I don't think there is but the middle of the mark is too faint to read.
Look familiar to anyone ?

So I'm on a mission to purchase 10 things every Sunday. Yesterday I bought a banknote from a guy in the US who was on holidays. (I didn't pay attention to his away message, I'm not missing my merchandise if I have to wait a bit longer for it anyway...)


He writes me a nice note to let me know he's on holidays, and then tells me he hopes I take this into account when giving him his DSRs for shipping time.


I wrote back to tell him I'm in Canada, so mail takes a while anyway (which is not the seller's fault), and I will leave positive FB and 5 stars once the item arrives as described, but if there's a problem I'll contact him first. I already talked to the staff at the postal outlet about not bending and folding things to fit into my box. If the PO staff do this, I will definitely not be requesting a replacement from the seller. And even if my note is folded in half, 1.99 is still a good deal. I will be thankful my note arrives dry... we get storms where I live and I get a lot of wet bills.


Cheers, C.

I received an email from a person identifying themselves as an eBay employee.  They asked if they could contact me via email or text to dicuss an upcoming video promo.  I replied through eBay messaging indicating tell me more.  After hitting send I noticed that the email doesn't fall under the From eBay category but from Members. Would like to notify eBay as I'm sure I'm not the only one receiving it. Anyone else receiving this email?

I received an email from ebay employee?

Hi. I have just won a item and was confirmed highest bidder. After some time the seller messaged me to say another bidder had made a offer higher than mine (dont know how they know what i put on) but they claimed a error with ebay and they should of won. As far as i was concerned i was the highest bidder, i also phoned ebay and spoke with them and they said by looking at their system that I had won but now the seller has also spoke to ebay and now cancelled my order. There were two items, a kitchen and island, i lost the island won the kitchen, the other bidder won the island and lost on the kitchen. Is there anything else i can do.

Item cancelled

Hello again,

Just found this at the thrift and I need some help determining if it's real. It is hand rolled, but I think I saw someone say Coach scarves are not hand rolled. Thank you in advance!

Real Coach Scarf?

I just placed a bid on a small item from china. what should I expect as far as customs/taxes? I know I am taking a chance on something getting lost or being difficult to return.  But, I am not sure if it will be hard or expensive to receive..any thoughts/info to reassure me? I hope this works okay because I found another item which is a little more that I would like to purchase, but I am afraid to bid since I have a fear of the unknown!.

customs/taxes on stuff from china

I'm just curious if anyone knows if unsold listings will disappear after awhile if you don't relist them? Is there a time frame? Any help would be appreciated.

Unsold listings

I have a potential buyer who wants a faster shipping option than I have listed. She is willing to pay more for the higher shipping. Can I change the price of shipping if she wins the auction?

Change in shipping cost

Has anyone having trouble w/ the shipping label when shipping their goods to HK ?

I have provided a HK address to a US seller but he/she claims the msg below keeps appearing every time he/she using the address that I provided.


"Please enter a valid value for destination city"

This is very annoying as the seller tried different moves and none of them worked, I have been using the address for few years and at least 20 sellers from all over the world could ship their goods successfully to me w/o reporting any shipping label probelm...

It would be great that anyone of you could help us out, thanks a lot !!!

Shipment to HK

I have a quick question around avoiding high volume car listing fee on ebay.  I listed a car and buyer who obviously was not going to purchase a vehicle purchased the car via BIN.  I know ebay has a policy stating if you submit more than six car listing for a year you are considered a high volume car seller.  Does eBay subtract one listing from your 6 free insertions allowed a yar if buyer had not intention of buying and you get a FVF for the bogus transaction?

Finally reached my 30 day rollover for category limits. I was able to list one item In this category today but it was the wrong item! Now I'm afraid if I cancel the listing (buy it now with variations) it will count towards my total and won't allow me to list.
I say this because I recently "sold" an item that and the buyer never paid. Opened a case and got my fees back but I was unable to resist it. So even though I never actually sold the item it still counted towards my limit
