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.
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.
The owner was an artist from Norway, living in Minnesota; most of her items were of mid century European origin.
I have struck out with my usual internet searches... fingers crossed someone know this.
Like it wasn't already hard enough to find the right policies, and look for the information...
I go to look up something, and it takes 3 pages just to get to the MBG policy page...
New Help page:
That threw me off to start with... but I thought w/e and typed in MBG... which used to take me straight to the MBG policy page... not anymore:
I clicked the wrong link to start with on the following screen shot, and had to come back to the start to find the right one... and I knew what I was looking for...
Any one ELSE see where this might be a problem???
This is what Google Trend says!
Put more preassure on sellers!!
You people can go deep more !! Yes! Great!
haahaha! well done ebay!
Bye bye eBay!!!
Put more and more preassure on sellers!!
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?
Ill put the other pics in post #2. Thanks!
What's up everyone?
The subject pretty much says it all. Thanks for any info.
I would appreciate any help with terms/wording for listing this necklace. Bead type? Closure Bead & Loop? Age?
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.
Is there a name for these beads? They're clear glass and big.
Anybody having trouble getting started this Monday
This is a painting signed RUNCI. Who is this and what is the value?
These were found in a button box.
This is a fantastic, chunky leather bangle. The beads are blue, white, gre and yellow. There is a starburst pattern and a red/yellow and green flag. Any ideas?
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--
(Thanks eBay! You guys are all a bunch of $#%@#^#&@!!!)
I require assistance identifying this copper/silver Dragon Brooch. It has no makers mark or other identifying markings. Maybe someone recognizes the style of this particular designer or has seen similar pieces? I haven't tested the silver yet. I also can't figure out the appoximate age and would love some suggestions. Thank you!
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 stupidly purchased "Office Pro 2013 Plus" for $ 60.00 from this stranger. The transaction went through and I could not cancel it.
I am sure this is a scam and microsoft will shut this down as soon as they detect it online (or after the trial period).
I cant discuss this with ebay! There is no way to get to them! Transaction ID is 5FU39502PR394923C. Then ebay emails me with this CONFUSING message:
|The listing you're interested in is no longer available|

Last night I tried to cancel the transaction unsuccessfully. I got this message from ebay!! :
Hi! Are there any Judith Leiber experts here? I have a friend's bag that she thinks is pretty special. She says it's probably one of Judith Leiber's first bags made in the 1950's or 1960's. I just don't know. I would like to find out more about this bag for her. It is, I think, alligator, and my friend calls it an attache. Here are a few pictures......
It measures about 16" x 6 1/2" x 10" plus a 5 1/2" handle drop. I've tried contacting the Judith Leiber museum in New York but they seem to be closed until Memorial Day. Anyone have any ideas? I can't find another example like this.
Thank you so much!

Does anybody know the parents of this little birdie?
or perhaps recognize it from its appearance? It appears to be four letters and the copyright sign.
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!!
Recently acquired these two Boudoir Dolls. I was hoping someon could help me identify a maker? I know it's difficult to ID them, but I figured it was worth a shot. Also, I could use some help discovering what material their dresses are made of. Very silky to the touch, could it be silk? I know boudoir dolls were made/popular between 1916-1930's. How old could these be?
Lot's of questions, I know, so thank you for any help or thoughts you can provide!
I would appreciate any help with info on this Boehm piece. I could not find any other Madonna bust like this in my searches and I wanted to make sure the signature on the bottom looked right. She is white bisque and measures, 8" tall X 5" long X 3.5" wide. There are some vertical manufacture lines visible in certain lighting, is this typical or would it be considered a defect? Thank you, to anyone looking at this post and anyone offering any help.
This was a old find many years back. My first impression was a grill mount Badge or it may be body mount for car - An double eagle with the number 32 in a triangle between the Eagle heads and the words (latin?) SPES MEA IN DEO EST on the banner below. Badge measures 3 inches in diameter - Original Bolt and washer on the back.
Hello. I have this carved wooden display shelf. I can't find any information on Loony Zoo. Marked on the bottom, By JJ Design 74. It stands 20" tall and 16" wide. Any help at all would be appreciated.

Goof morning. Anyone recognize this large purple glass vase? The vase is 13" tall with a 2" lip/rim. TIA for any info! gina
These are cold to the touch and I didn't know if they were called art glass ? Any information would be great. thank you
Any clues? 4.25"....shallow....copper leaf garland and silver or silverplate duck or fowl vignette...no marks....
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, heavy
pendant at 3 1/4" by 2 1/4". It is really neat looking.
Has anyone here seen anything like this? Or a point in the right direction? Or, is there anyone who can decipher that signature.
Any and all help is most appreciated!
My Mom has had this vase for years and years. We have looked everywhere (in books, online, etc.) trying to find out the maker of this vase. It isn't porcelain but seems to be more like pottery. It is completely hand painted. We have just always been curious as to the maker as my Mom would like to search for more pieces. Thanks again for any help you can give! We really appreciate it so much!!
I post this in collectibles, 4 of the pictures werent public then I edit the post and when I was done I ran out of time and couldnt fix it. can someone here help?

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!
Thank you in advance for any help with these plates.
There are 4 ceramic plates that are approximately 9 3/4" across. They are between 1 1/2 -2 pounds each.
There is a part of a silver label left on one of them that says "Kyoto". Colud anyone help identify the maker?
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.
Can you folks please tell me whether or not this is a Fenton Mulberry Beaded Melon Creamer?
It measures a tad over 5 1/2 inches tall.
Also, I do not see a Fenton mark on the bottom. Is that possible?
Thanks for any help.
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.
Thanks for looking. About 4" tall, impressed 43 on the bottom. The bottom is black not brown.
There are a bunch of names and date around the front: W. Setna, Rocznice Przysiegi, T. Kosgiuszki, W. Krakowie, then 24. marca 1884. The back has the date 1794 next to the soldier on the left, and 1831 next to the soldier on the right. Then under the eagle 1772.
Then below that date is a small placque with the date 1863 where 2 crossed swords come together. Any information would be appreciated.
43.5" long by 27.5"widest by 39-3/4" tall. Thank you
She is so beautiful, I could not pass her up. Actually, it's the handmade clothing got me. Here is what I know: She is hard molded plastic, the head and arms are jointed. The eyes open and close. The legs and feet are stationary. The shoes are painted on. Possibly Nancy Ann? She is about 7.5" tall. Any expertise is greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need further info.
Does anyone know if this lining fabric on a vintage Burberry Fairview II trench coat has a name? Or what to call it??? thanks!

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.
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'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."
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.
the seller send me a false truck no. for return item,and request me to change the feedback to possitive-this was by mail through ebay-what is i can do with him?till now i did not accpet to change the feedback
How/When do they go away? I just got one this weekend from someone leaving me a POS FB with low stars. Please explain how the defect system works and how long these things hang around. I think I have 3 defects already. Thank You
I WANT TO CONTACT SOMEONE IN THIS EBAY!!! I need an email address to send my problem to it! HELP AND RESOLUTION Center can't help me neither questions and this **bleep**ty answers!!!!!
I WANT A HUMAN TO TALK TO!!!!
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
I want to post a question, but I need a screen shot, I have no idea how to do this.
I also want to blur some info, how to do this?
I am using a new laptop with Win 8.1
I would really like to thank all the people that have purchesed from my store.Is there a way to send a mass email ?
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'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.
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?
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.
On one account I can enter the shipping prices, in $$$'s
and the international shipping prices.
and so on
On another account I get polocies... polocies that I must edit.
How do I get back to the regular listing options???
I'm beginning to miss not-so-free shipping! Up until recently I've sold 95% of my items (clutter from around the house) with Free Shipping. I am now listing records (albums and 45s) from my brother's estate with calculated Media Mail shipping. This is the third time in just a few days that I'm back with questions/issues on postage. Yesterday it was pointed out to me that the 45s could likely be shipped First Class for the same price or less than Media Mail. So last night the very first 45 sold and here I am frozen in a quandary as to how to proceed.
I was paid $2.69 for MM shipping. MM costs me $2.92 because eBay does not include the 23 cent mandatory tracking charge (it cannot be removed by me even if I wanted to). First Class for 5 oz. is $2.09. It is ridiculous to even be agonizing over this, but can't I just upgrade to FC and pocket the freakin' 60 cents differential without either contacting my customer or worrying about negative feedback because I changed the service? They should be happy they will likely get this faster, right? Or am I just cruisin' for a bruisin'?
can i request for tax refund from e bay,my order was shipped out side usa to saudi arabia
I've read through ebay's help regarding fees. "Insertion fees are free for your first 50 listings per calendar month." I've listed 25 items with no fees. 25 total, for the year. When I try to list my 26th item (it's a geocoin, or a game token), I'm told I don't qualify for a free insertion fee. Why is this?
Quite a shocking information!
I will be away from my computer and I have many items I have set up to follow. Every morning I get around 15 emails. Since I will be away I would love not to come home to 200 emails from my following list. Can I pause them without manually adjusting every single item I follow ?
I see something I'd like to buy, but I would hate to buy and find my bucks available just after I'd paid. When are they next available?
how do I find who is following me
Buyer open a return request and claimed that the item arrived damaged.
After talking to her via ebay message i found out that the item never arrived damaged because she sent me pictures
and she only wants to return it because she doesnt need it anymore.
In my listing i put that i dont do refunds or returns
I dont know what to do, should i call ebay and tell them whats happening? or should i give her a refund?
She also wants me to pay for the shipping cost also would i get the selling fees back?
I have been trying to sell items but item shown in Dollars not Pounds and items on my list also in dollars and all items from the USA
can not print out overseas postage labels what is going on?
I'm used to printing out records of all of my purchases by going into the "Print Page" link in the middle of the listing page, but the link has disappeared as of late. I've read that it's a temporary glitch or something.
In the meantime, I'm simply printing the listing pages as they are, but because of the "See what other people bought after buying this item" and "Sponsored Links" pics taking up all the space between the item title and other info, I'm having to print out two or more pages for each listing. A big waste of paper and ink after a few dozen listings.
I've been looking all over the account settings to see if there's a way to manage the display, to no avail. Really annoying.
Is there a way to disable or block them? Or do I need to go into my browser and configure it so it can block those images/sections in particular?
I do need for the item pic to stay up. I'm using Firefox and don't really know how to go about it.

I am having trouble editing listings and was just wondering if anyone else is having this problem?
Good morning. My first round of listings to meet the Top Rated Seller Plus Discount (20% off FVF I think) ended yesterday and most were paid and are ready to ship today. One of my buyers has requested that I do not ship her item until this coming Friday because she is out of town, which means I will not have the item turned around in 24 hours time. This item was one of my more expensive sales and I would really like to take advantage of the extra discount. Is there anything I can do to ensure I still receive the discount?
I sold an untested video game disc that ended up not working. The buyer wanted to return it, and so I told him I would pay return shipping (which is fair, and I am obligated to do by eBay policies anyway). However, he returned it using USPS Priority Express Mail for $20.00 when it could hav been shipped First Class with tracking for $3.00. Am I obligated to pay the full $20.00? I already refunded him the original price and shipping price via the Resolution Center (there was no option to include return shipping that I saw).
Just wondering, is it approriate for a buyer who wins an auction, and responds on the third day a
fter asking if it is ok to delay payment 5 more days, until they get paid? BTW this buyer is also a seller.
i've read yea and no to adding a buy it now to a listing after it has started. a possible buyer asked me if I would sell earlier and asked me for a price. I'm cool with the amount ... is this against the 'rules'?
Customer says they haven't received item, delivery confirmation show delivered..what do I need to do?
