I am hoping someone can provide some information on this small tray.  It measures about 5 5/8" by 4 5/8".  It looks like Pickard with the floral pattern and basket off flowers in the center and gold overlay, but is marked what looks like "sace" Germany along with what may be a signature.  I can only make out the last letters "oines".  I find some listings where the "sace" is translated as saxe, and the lettering is very similar but all of these are printed on and not engraved. Any help will be appreciated.

The wood  looks like a different color depending which angle you look at it, not sure what kind of wood this is made out of or the artist that made it.

Item 221835749481

 

I just bought two dolls as an Estate Sale and I don’t know much about them. I bought them because I thought they were in good shape.  This doll is about 22”-24” from head to toe. She appears to be of porcelain and held together, inside,  by a white elastic cord. The entire body feels and looks like it is porcelain.

The markings on the back of her head are:

A15T
(ABETTE,  CABETTE or GABETTE)

I find that A15 indicates a Steiner but that is as far as I can get.

Her eyes appear to be glass and are green. They look like real eyes. Her eye brows and eyelashes are painted.
 
Her fingers are all intact and I have not taken off her clothing to look for other marks.

The dress and clothing appear to be in very good shape.
 
She is on a metal stand marked:

311340
IMSCO
TAIWAN

 

Did I list this properly?  I have no WATCH and I believe this may be a valuable doll. I'm afraid I need to edit my posting.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Selling question

I've got a ceramic bird on nest figurine that I would like to list today but the mark on the bottom is smeared.  I don't think it's RELPO'; it looks like it starts with "RED" and then maybe 3 or 4 more letters.  Can you help with ID?  Also, what kind of bird is it?  Thanks for taking a look!

I can't believe this jsut happened, I was raising my max bid with 2 seconds left on the timer and suddenly the auction was just over. As I am looking through the bidding history I can see that the bids are not showing up in chronological order. Note how my last bid is timed 3 seconds after a higher bid, there are also other bids that seem to have that 3 second delay. How can this be possible, and where did my bid for 658 disappear too? 

 

Is there any possibility to appeal the matter to Ebay, since it must be an error in their servers, some kind of lag or something.

 

I had my heart set on this item... I was willing to much higher than what it actually sold for. I can't begin to explain how sad I am right now.

Stones are my weak point. I was thinking moonstone but second guess myself. I have not cleaned it but it changes colors from blue to gray and looks to have black specks in it. It is marked sterling  I think it is older as it has been testeted so many times little chunks missing. I usually dont buy rings like this but this one was speaking to me lol

Hello Everyone

I picked this up a while ago and I put it aside because it looked like there may be a strand of beads missing (see the empty hook/loop in the center between the strands) but the more I look at it I'm thinking that may have been deliberate because if they placed another strand in the center it probably would have overlapped onto the other two strands.  Also, I don't know how to describe the green beads.  Any input is appreciated as always.  One other question is age.  Any thoughts on age? Thank you in advance

Thinking cool thoughts during these hot days....

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

This question may make me sound like a complete dunce...but I'm a semi-lovable dunce... providing you pick up your dirty clothes and rinse off your dishes...hopefully, it's worth a little "stupid question" mileage...

 

Every time I've ordered from a particular seller, they offer cheaper prices if I buy outside of eBay. Honestly, it took a couple of times to get it. I thought no one would be dumb enough to put it in writing directly below the prominent yellow warning on every header.

 

I just don't respond. I know better than to take that risk {I'm just a plain old dunce..not really old...more semi-approaching the beginning of the tail end of middle aged...kinda...old enough to engage in utter nonsense when I'm seriously sleep deprived...and not nearly old enough to get a pass for it...but not a gullible dunce...most of the time...sorta...}.

 

I've only been making purchases for a few months. If I don't report a seller willing to violate eBay's policies, is there an impact on the seller community I'm not grasping?

 

The seller chose to be responsible for the consequences. Most of us resort to doing stupid things when we're desperate {or sleep deprived}. I don't know if that's the motivation, I'm just hesitant to rat someone out if they might depend on sales for their total income. On the other hand, I feel like the importance of reporting is escaping me. It would be just as wrong not to give the consequences to other sellers equal consideration.

Thanks in advance for your answer!  happyfcgonecrazy.gif

Undelivered product

So according to eBay.


"In general, bids can't be retracted, but there are some exceptions:

  • You made a mistake when entering your bid, e.g. $50 instead of $5.
     
  • The item's description changed significantly after you placed your bid.
     
  • You can't contact the seller."

    So how is this Retractable?


    I put up for auction my item at 150 and it had 1 bid then in the morning i saw 207 (i got happy) and now its 150 again with a bunch of 150 bids.

    So how does this become retractable? My other problem is feel that people can just bid to check out how much are otherp people willing too pay then if they see the item is way out of their range they would cry to ebay telling them they made a mistake.

    I was trying to think that maybe the guy wanted to bid 20 but thats imposible.. so maybe lets just say he made a mistake of adding 200.. but if that was the case.. why would the bid escalate to 211.22 when in the morning was 207?

Hi - does anyone here recognize the mark on this 14k pin?  It looks like an F with an arrow through it; but not like the Fisher signature I've seen elsewhere.

 

Not sure if it helps to identify the pin, but there are also hand scratched marks on the back - initials that look like JM and 11394.

The stem is marked 14k and 5833.

 

Would it be correct to call this ozidized gold finish?  Thanks very much for any help you have!!

about my order

I'm a new seller on eBay and this is the first time someone returns item 
BUY bought 2 headphones but one works well and the other does not work well
  The buyer did not know how to do replace for it did not work return via the Internet
Found return because it does not match the description
He explained problem that the handset does not work very well and asked RESOLUTION
  I told him I do not know, but can it returns the item, and I refer you money
I worked and return the item

 

The buyer then sent me a message :

 

( Hi topv, it's me again. I wish you could reply in the other message section, but I have all the original stuff, the extra ear cushions and bag as well and will send it out really soon Smiley Tongue. Id love another one though since the white ones work so well Smiley Happy. If you want me to order another or if you can just send another when you receive this pair... Just let me know what would be more convenient! thanks!! )

 

me  :

 

Thank you for the Second Letter of Inquiry I understand that you want to replace the black one another.
I will send other immediately when received.
But first you must close the open case and you do not want the money and
I spoke with the seller replacement
Thank you

 

The buyer :

 

Hi topv, sent out the headphones earlier today. Should I just go ahead and cancel the return on my profile now? Sorry for all the questions i just want to make sure i do everything right Smiley Happy never had to do a return before.

 

me  :

Thank you for your message.
Always we want to be satisfied that you sent the speaker that does not work Do you want to replace them in the same color or want to change it blue or black or white Kindly send me your request and thank you for your purchase from eBay

 

The buyer :

Hi topv Smiley Tongue thanks for a choice! ;p i think I ll try a blue one this time i guess. Thanks a ton man!!

 

The buyer Send the handset that do not work and sent a message :

 

Black handset, which does not work very well and arrived me today and I will send you another one blue color also requested on Monday morning, and I hope that you accept my apologies again
thank you 

And I sent a message to Ebay and I told them all that

 

But I found that after this message from eBay 

 

eBay Customer Support has reviewed the case and made a final decision.

 

We issued a full refund of $23.50 on Jul 19, 2015 to the buyer. As described in the eBay Money Back Guarantee, the refund includes the purchase price, plus original shipping. This amount will be deducted from your PayPal account or charged to your preferred reimbursement payment method. The hold on this PayPal transaction has been removed. This case is closed.

Decision:
This case has been decided in the buyer's favor.

Comments:
Unfortunately, it looks like the refund you agreed to issue was never sent to your buyer. We've issued it and now need you to reimburse us.

You can also view the details of this case in the Resolution Center
 
But the buyer a refund back to me and told me :
 
Hi topv!! Sorry they sent me a refund... I must have done something wrong. I just sent the 23.50 back to you! Smiley Tongue thanks again man and sorry!
 
me :
It is clear that there is mistake because ebay may refund of $ 23.50 and taken from my account did not know why they did not reading the messages between me and you and thank you that you have return it amount again

I have successfully worked with the "Best Offer" option for other items, but for an item I currently have listed I have 2 offers but no links available to respond to either offer. I would like to accept one of them before it expires. Any suggestions? I was surprised the only option for support is via phone !

As noted, I know HOW to include "Best Offer" options - I have done so with other listings and successfully replied even earlier today.

This item DOES have "Best Offer" option enabled.

Urgent!This needs to be answered.

I originally posted under the general selling group for information on 2 wood carved pieces I found but haven't many views.  Maybe everyone is out enjoying this beautiful day!  

Anyone around today that can point me in the right direction on information?

  • Type of wood?
  • History and age?  
  • Mass produced or hand crafted carving?    
  • Does the lady and child represent anyone in particular? 
  • So many questions!  Thanks for any and all help.

Found this beautiful weaving at an estate sale here in Rhode Island; it measures 50 x 68". I was wondering if anyone could help me to date and or describe this? Colors are wonderful, it's cotton. Appears to be all hand woven. Just wasn't sure if it looked familiar to anyone. Thanks in advance, Mary001.JPG002.JPG

Victorian Romance Barbie #10361 Need Info

Hoping someone could help me with this Spode Copeland Pattern. I have searched everywhere. I have a set with plates, cups, teapot, and all have same undermarkings. They are handpainted. Signed and numbered in red S 1675 4 (some have just 4 dots in place of 4) most also have a black number, impressed imprint hard to read, and stamped with the Copeland Spode England backstamp. The border is a very dark gold, I would say it is bronze in color. I would describe the picture as a countryside church scene. Also, the Cream and Sugar image is different from all the other pieces, not sure if they are part of the same set?? Would love ANY information or insight. Thanks in advance!

Help with Spode Copeland Church Pattern

I got this vase from an estate sale of a collection who had tons of high end collectibles and antiques. Many things were from the 18th, 19th, early 20th centuries. I found this vase to be particularly interesting. Any idea of what country the mark is from and perhaps the maker. Any help is appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Your thoughts on the possible age, origin and use of this item?

 

Materials used appear to be bone, copper, bakelite and wood.

 

Size: 5 in.

Carved Bone Box. Your thoughts?

 

 

! am doing a sale for an older couple moving and downsizing. Yesterday the gentleman gave me a metal index card holder full of Topps baseball cards circa 1955 and asked if they would sell. He's is rightly proud of his Hank Aaron and "Sandy" Koufax cards and the Aaron card has seen much more handling probably being shown to friends etc.

 

There are quite a lot of duplicates and some of the cards are in much better shape than others. I know that every single tiny defect reduces the points value of the cards, but I would like to do the very best I can for the man. These cards were an important part of this man's youth and I hope I can give his "sacrifice" an appropriate value. 

 

What do I do now? I would appreciate any advice you can give me.

 

These pictures are obviously not scanned. That can be done but for a first step I wanted you to see what I am dealing with. There are around 60 cards.

I just had a customer contact me about one of my items. He said that in his search results, the price shown that it was $19.99, but when he opened the listing to view it, it showed it was $49.99..but actually it was neither..its $29.99  anyone else ever have this complaint?

This was the item in question.. and it does concern me, and could possibly be a reason behind the lack of sales over the past few months

I am a seller who is on the edge of the second tier of store benefits.  I am trying to go with more fiixed price listings because that's where the promotions are. I have spoken to friends who are not selling at at my volume and they are not paying for auction listings at all even though they are listing more than my allotted amount of free action listings. I think this is proof that ebay is trying to force more people into stores. What do your think?

I sold 2 fairly expensive aquarium filters to one buyer. Together they were $250. One was new and the other was  used for about 4 months. I set the used one up on my aquarium to show it working. At first the buyer said he needed them by the weekend because it was an emergency. I got them to him in 2 days so he had them in time. I didn't hear a thing until this past Saturday ( he had them 7 days by then) and he stated the new one leaked and he hadn't even looked at the other one yet. He also said " I see you don't take returns so I will be leaving you negative feedback".The leaking issue is common and easily remedied so I replied and told him what to do and reassured him the other filter was functioning great and that it had been running until an hour before I shipped it to him. The next thing I hear is today and he says he called the manufacturer of the leaking filter and they are sending him new parts. This is impossible since they don't have customer service hours on the weekend.Then he goes on to say that the other filter has an issue with part of it and it is useless to him so he is throwing it away. He also griped that there was some water left in it. At most there would be drops in it. I dried it out but a tiny bit of water could have been in the motor.I pointed out to him that the feature he says does not work is shown in  a picture working fine but since he is so unhappy to return both filters for a refund. He replies and says that he doesnt know if the filter works or not but that it looks like it won't work. He also does not want a refund. He said " I am not the type of person who complains just to get a refund but I will be letting my feedback show the type of product you sell".  As I said these filters were not cheap so if there was really an issue, wouldn't he want the refund?  I think he is fishing for a partial refund so he can keep the filters . What do I do with this guy?

What do I do with this buyer?

OK, so my husband wants to set up an account and store to list items (some of my inventory is going to be transferred to him until he builds up the maximum listings for the store he chooses).

 

If you were starting fresh, registered today, zero FB... what precautions would you take to avoid being a scam magnet? Keep in mind in this house I know what's going on and how to deal with situations for the most part, but when you add the zero FB and new account factor in there, I'm afraid every scammer on the planet will be buying from us. We don't have the capital to go and be a buyer and build 500 FB like I did with the account I'm using now.

 

I am aware there are things I have listed that he will not at all be able to list himself for fear of us losing the item...

 

Does anyone have any tips on how you can start out by jumping right in?

 

Thanks,

C.

If you were starting fresh as a seller...

I just got a buyer for a video game. He sent me an email saying Ebay is printing out his address wrong and it SHOULD be THIS way. He says he's tried to change it and it's not working. So I checked the buyer: the account name is a different name than the mailing address & name he emailed me (in Puerto Rico), he just changed his username in the last month AND he's got a TOTAL of 60 purchases, but 48 are within the last month. I'm wondering if this guy has someone else's credit card...what do I do? Sure, I'll get paid and it's not my problem, but I just feel I should warn SOMEONE. Or at least double check. Shouldn't I?

By the way, I sent an email to the REGISTERED account holder asking simply, "is this the correct address?". No response yet...

Pretty new seller here. I recently bought a used iphone for a pretty good deal. Did a little research, imei check clean, not stolen or blacklisted. Phone in good cosmetic condition. Cool. Put the phone up for auction and sold for a lot better than I expected actually. Next day buyer pays with a note to me: "please make sure you remove icloud before shipping". (not verbatim) **bleep** is that? I thought. Further investigation showed me that the phone was locked through apple and could not be activated since I didn't have the password. After a few brief messages back and forth I refunded the buyer (maybe 30-40 minutes after he'd payed and that was the end of communication.. Now my question is, how will that affect my seller rating/status? Nothing was shipped. No dispute or anything in the resolution center and as of now no negative feedback. (the first time I'm hoping that I don't get any at all) lol. Just wondering about the repercussions of a refund without a return so to speak. Thanks

I recently sold a limited edition Lego set. I take good care when shipping my items (good sized box with lots of packing popcorn). However, today the buyer informed me that the Lego box came creased. He included a photo and the crease is noticeable but not too bad.

 

I proceeded to offer him a full refund if he returned the item. Shipping would be paid by me. The box is small - about 7x5x5 so shipping should not really be an issue. The buyer refused because he "does not want to deal with shipping." So I offer him 2x the shipping cost as a partial refund which I think is fair considering the item was damaged during shipping. The buyer rejected again, and now wants a partial refund of 30% of the item cost. Am I wrong in thinking that this is absurd? 

 

As a seller, I now feel vulerable to negative feedback or a return of a mangled-box-by-disgruntled-buyer unsuitable for resale if I do not agree to his partial refund amount. Are there any steps I should take to protect myself and my feedback rating? Or should I just agree to the partial refund amount?

A buyer recently won an auction I was holding and did not pay. I tried contacting the individual, but received no response. I opened an unpaid items case and gave them a strike. Now, I fear I am facing the same situation with an even more pricey item. The buyer on this new item has not responded and has not payed for about 1 week. He has lots of feedback and are all 100% positive. If the same situation happens with this guy, can I leave negative feedback? It seems insane that someone can have so much positive feedback and be going around winning auctions and not paying! Anyway, I'd like to hear what the proper way to handle this situations is. Am I supposed to give a strike and just leave it be?

I sent the seller an email requesting him to update the shipping and he never did since 29june 2015! Instead he went ahead to report an unpaid item! Now ebay has put one unpaid item on my list! I find this unfair and am looking for EBAY customer support but in VAIN: Seriously sad and frusterated at the moment.  I was in desperate need to pay, I never got a reply till a case was slapped on me!

 

Sorry, I couldnt pay because the shipping details restricted me to. I emailed the customer on the 29th JUNE to update shipping details and send me invoice and he never replied to my email. I wanted the item so much but just couldnt pay due to destination restrictions!

 

The item stated worldwide shipping but at the moment I needed to purchase the item, the payment couldnt be processed because opf shipment restrictions.

How could I pay?
