I have a heavy bronze vase that has an inscription on the inside bottom, but I am not sure if it is of Chinese or Japanese origin to even begin to identify it. Any help with it will be greatly appreciated! Thank you. Katie

I obtained at an estate auction a large set of matching barware:  champagnes in 2 sizes and old fashioned glasses.  I have struck out searching to ID;  anyone recognize them?  (I am guessing they are 1970s but could be totally wrong).   Thanks to all of you who read this!  :smileyhappy:IMG_9194.JPGIMG_9195.JPGIMG_9198.JPGIMG_9196.JPG

Does this look like ivory?

I've had sash buckles before, usually with a pin mechanism but this one has me stumped.
Is there another part missing that would have clipped onto the rotating buckle part ?
This is large at 4+1/4" x 2+1/4" and because of the curvature of the design and prong placement I'm guessing M'lady would have worn this vertically instead of horizontally ?
I just can't figure out how the sash would have been used with this buckle.

Hello again! I have some wonderful old jewelry lately, so come here for H E L P! :smileyhappy: I belive this is a genuine JET Victorian Brooch. The long pin bar and simple c clasp tell me it's possibly 1800's? Is this a Mourning Pin? And are those marcasite beads? It almost looks like buttons made into a brooch? And there is repair on the back. Very lightweight piece. What is French Jet, by the way? And is this worth listing? So confusing! :smileyhappy:

Is this a Victorian JET brooch? Marcasite?

Ok, so this is a nice long strand of what feels like glass beads (tap like glass, moderate weight and cold to touch) individually knotted, no clasp. The color reminds me of butter. I've found what they call lemon jade, but nothing else has come close. Any ideas on the beads?  For some reason, I get the vibe that these are not run of the mill...but wthdik? TIA!!!

The eBay Town Square discussion

May 23, 2015 4:55:08 AM PT

the liberal agenda

I bought something on eBay and when leaving feedback, in addition to the usual DSR ratings, it asked quite prominently:

 

Did the item arrive on or before Monday, May 11, 2015? Estimated Delivery Date: May 11___Yes  ___ No

 

I did not select yes or no because I did not remember when I received it. Moreover, I was NOT going to answer the question anyway since I am a repeat buyer from that seller (5 X) and I did not want to ding him in some way even if I did not receive the item by May 11, 2015.


My questions as a seller:

 

- What is this?

 

- What is eBay's MOTIVE with this question? (Seems redundant to me, why ask when that's a DSR).

 

- If one selects "no" does that then go to a page where eBay dings the seller in some manner?

 

- If this is another way to ding sellers, does anyone know in what manner eBay slaps sellers if the buyer says "No" on arrival time?

 

- In the past as we all know, when shipping on time (within same day or one day after payment), the ability to DSR is shaded out because a seller shipping on time. That's fine, I have lived with that (I ship same or next day.) But, is this now dinging sellers for delay by the shipping service?

 

- If it is a method of dinging sellers, is anyone privy to eBay's LOGIC for blaming sellers for USPS or UPS delays, in effect holding sellers liable for third party's conduct, here USPS or UPS, for example.

 

Thanks for any comments. (Yes, I looked around here for an answer on this.)

Selling discussion

This has me stumped but learn everyday I think the pin and clasp has been replaced but the brooch is silver I think. This belongs to a older gentleman and his wife passed and I am trying to help him sell some things to make some $$ for him. Any info is appreciated as I google and get all kinds of things mainly cameos. It has some damage one corner is chipped other is cracked and 3 stones missing but I think I have some to replace them. With that being said I still like it but that doesnt matter think it is worth listing with the damage? There is no marks on it I cleaned it a little but found nothing

Hello davidnichols2015,

After reviewing your eBay account, it appears that you haven't followed our Direct Sales policy. A list of the items we're concerned about is available further down in this email.

We realize you may not have been aware of these guidelines, so we haven't removed any listings, or taken any other action on your account. Instead, we want to provide you with this information so you can thoroughly review your listings and make sure they follow our guidelines.  

Please understand that you mentioned "THERE IS A BUY IT NOW ON THE RADIO OR YOU CAN MAKE A REASONABLE OFFER" in the listing description which may lead to off eBay sale. Sellers are not allowed to sell items directly to buyers off eBay. The eBay listing page is to sell items through the eBay site. Sellers are not permitted to advertise their own off-eBay businesses in their listings, nor are they permitted to list an item on the site and seek to sell it, or more quantities of it, off eBay. Items that are sold off eBay do not have the advantage of full trade protection services since there is no record of a transaction through eBay. Please be careful while you list your items in future so that they are in accordance with ebay policies. We've observed that this is the first time you breached eBay policy; please take some time to read our help pages. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Offering additional items for sale outside of eBay isn't allowed. It is also not allowed to require purchases in addition to the item you are offering.

These practices are considered a way of avoiding eBay fees. Listings that try to avoid fees put sellers who pay their fees at a disadvantage. Also, they can create a poor buying experience. Buyers may mistakenly think that they are covered by eBay's buyer protection and feedback services when making these additional purchases.

To learn more about our avoiding eBay fees policy, please go to:

Please make sure that your current and future listings follow these guidelines. If they don't, they'll be removed and your fees won't be refunded. It could also result in additional actions, including loss of buying and selling privileges on eBay.

Thanks in advance. My crackle glass resources are limited. I went through Weitmans' Book 2 with no luck and also the Blenko Project website. For all I know it's cheap Mexican glass -- I seem to have no clue about the difference between that and nice American crackle -- but, well, I'd like to know anyway.  :smileyindifferent:  It's 8 1/4" tall with an unpolished pontil.

These bottles appear to be cased, but the inside is fairly thin, more like white satin enamel painted inside than an actual glass layer. Would you dIMG_1427.JPGescribe this as cased, or as something else?

Any thoughts on origins or maker? In my searches, I'm coming up with results all over the place. I thought they were pretty. And my first thought was Victorian. But now I'm wondering if they're Czech.

Thoughts?

Does anyone have info on this sig

This vase is 10 1/4 inches in height.  It has a textured, white iridescent finish applied to the outside.  Kind of feels gritty like sandpaper.  There is a pontil scar on bottom and it is ground flat around the outside edge of the bottom.

 

The closest I could find were a few vases identified as Poschinger that were really close in shape but none finished like mine.  The only vases I could find with a similar finish were Murano vases with a Scavo or Corroso finish but I don't think the shape of mine is right for a Murano piece.

 

Any help with age, origin, maker or key descriptive words would be great.  Thanks!

I purchased a camera lens and the wrong lens was sent. I requested a return but eBay closed the case saying that the seller did not offer refunds. Clearly the wrong lens was sent, I verified this with the local camera shop. This was advertised as a Nikon mount Sigma lens but is a Sony mount lens. I took pictures of the lens on a Sony camera ans sent them to the seller. Still refuses to refund. Seller says in communication that "If this had been our mistake we would gladly issue a refund for the item and for shipping." Hate to resort to Negative Feedback. Impossible to communicate with eBay once a case is closed.Displaying photo.JPG

Hello,

I have had this piece for a while, and I can't really settle on what it is.  I am guessing it is some sort of pendant.  It has prong set purple stones.  It measures 1 2/3" long and it is heavy.  It has two marks on the back-one on each side.  I can make out 925 on one side, (it does test out as sterling silver) and three other marks on the other side.

 

Hoping someone out there recognizes this piece and can tell me what it is and who made it.

 

Thank you in advance for your help and advice!

Hello Folks,

I acquired this punch bowl several days ago and I can't figure out the pattern name or maker.  It measures about 14 1/2" in diameter and stands approximately 7" tall.  It has a panelled design with a scalloped rim.  It was likely made to sit on a stand and has a base approximately 5 7/8" wide.

When I purchased the bowl, the previous owner said it was made by Heisey.  The bowl came with a large lot of Heisey Queen Ann (#1509) punch cups.  The cups are marked with the Heisey diamond logo, however, there are no manufacturer marks on the punch bowl.  I suspect her attribution of the bowl to Heisey was based on the marked cups (which do not match the bowl).

The punch bowl is quite heavy and the glass has bubbles and a few straw marks.  It appears to be old glass, possibly EAPG.  Any ideas on the pattern name and/or manufacturer?  Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

I have a pair of Diorly sunglasses like the picture below. They are in perfect condition execpt for the plastic ends that go on your ears. I'd like to replace the plastic ends and make them perfect again before selling them. Do these plastic ends have a name, because knowing what they are called would help me find them. And if anyone could steer me in the right direction to look for them that would be really great. I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm a dumb guy who knows almost nothing about CSA.

Dear rickgitrs,

Hey Rick... for some reason, I don't see that tab or option on my end. Since the case is already closed, the only option it gives me is to relist the item, but I can't see where I can void it? Let me know... I'd be glad to help, I just can't see the option.
thanks.

I've just read that they made jewelry in real gold as well as plated but wouldn't this be marked as gold?  It held steady and did not wipe at 10k and dimmed a bit at 14k but still held  I cannot make out what those three things are next to Krementz   Stones seem to be glass only Ty for the help

Question on Lovely Patsy doll

Hi i dont know if someone has noticed some changes on the GSP, for example, there are things that i used to buy with that program, bought it, and suddently this week i cant order anything thats more than 199usd using the gsp, has there been any change?? my country is El Salvador.

 

the item says is on the global shipping program, but when i try to buy it, gives me this message, and in this case i already bought one of these lights abt 3 weeks ago and all went just fine. and one more change is that everything is being shipped over DHL which was not like this before used to be shipped with other courrier.

This is the first time I've picked up glass with this optic. It looks like a fishscale to me, and has a dot or bullseye in the middle. You can feel the fischscale on the outside, although not as well as on the inside. I'm trying to search online to get some ideas of possible maker, era, how to describe, etc. I'm coming up empty. How would you describe this? Any thoughts on how to search? Possible makers? 

Any and all help is appreciated! I'm lost on this one.

Thanks.

How many people have had the experience of a bait and switch wit an Italian company selling Darious vertical wind turbines? I won a bid on eBay for a complete wind turbine and was sent the blades and aluminum struts missing the actual generator which makes the wind turbine work. I sent photos to the company of the item I bid on and the Item I received and they told me that I had purchase something totally different. My correspondence with the company went back and fourth. When I finally tried to get eBay to help me they refused to do anything about my dispute. I now am the proud Owner of a wind turbine that doesn't produce energy. Has anyone else had this problem? Below is what I was suposed to have purchased. The second photo is what I received.

Help to identify a item

I've been a eBay user for years, I've had more problems with sellers lately then ever. I bought an iPhone 5c paid promptly, the seller totally dragged their feet on shipping I tried contacting them asking what's going on. I get a nasty message from the seller threatening me that because of my previous message they don't feel comfortable sending me the phone!?!?!?!? I called eBay and told them what happened they sent this bipolar seller a cancelation request. I haven't been a seller in years but what happens if the seller doesn't respond and eBay refunds me? Does eBay do anything about crazy sellers?

Vindictive seller

As all of you know, eBay has updated their policies in an extreme way. I feel that it has made it much more difficult and expensive for individual sellers now. (I think they are trying to make eBay more like Amazon, with things for sale from big vendors and people who do eBay stores as a living, but that's a different discussion for a different day.) I am trying to find another website to start selling on that is very user-friendly for sellers, without huge fees and selling limits. I have been looking at Bonanza, but am having a bit of difficulty understanding it. Does anyone have any feedback about other auction websites (besides Etsy) to sell on that won't break the bank? I just can't afford to sell on eBay now. (Not willing to pay for a store subscription on eBay, not willing to risk paying to list not knowing if something will sell or not - you can't always guarantee someone looking for that specific item is going to be online at that specific time.) I need the extra income and Ebay used to be really great for that, but cutting my free listings by 60% and getting rid of my ability to relist without paying really hurts my wallet. Any ideas, ya'll?

Selling discussion

A buyer bid on my auction for a not-working for part only lot of two laptops. I checked the buyers feedback and he left a neg and recieved a refund from ebay for another seller who sold a similar item. I looked at that itemsauction and I can't see how he could have misrepresented it, it was an old noteboo that doesn't work sold for parts only and clearly stated so in the very brief description he had with very few detales other than that. Am I allowed to or justified in cancelling this buyers bid? It looks like that is the only neg he ever left and it's the only time he bought something for prts only. Everything else he purchases is new stuff. He also sells.

 

My inclination is to not cancel his bid unless he wins. I don't want to go through a return drama for this stuff.

Selling discussion

so I got restricted on my account for some stupid reason(not important). When I try to go to make another Ebay account, it gets restricted because the PayPal account linked with it, is also is linked with a restricted account.
If I want to still use the same PayPal account(that is associated with a restricted account) and make a different eBay account without the worry of getting restricted, will unlinking the PayPal account with the restricted eBay account let me create another eBay account without getting restricted on that one as well?

Hopefully this was not too confusing

I recently won a bid of a quite expensive camera on ebay. The seller said he was on a business trip so he gave me a incorrect tracking number which has been sent to another guy in my city. The seller said he's going to send me the camera later, but it's been a week though. I didn't recieved any package even a reply from the seller. I've got all the contact record with the seller and tracking info detail from UPS to prove the package hasn't been sent to my personal address.(not even from the seller.) Could anybody help me getting the money back? I tried to do the online service process on ebay but it won't give me an option that fits my situation!!!

Buying & Selling Basics question

Long story short, I auctioned off a laptop several days ago. The buyer then informed me that 2 keys on the keyboard were not working properly. I immediately assumed this to be a software issue as I just factory reset 30 minutes before I shipped the computer (it's common for keys not to work properly after a factory reset), and at that point everything was functioning fine. The buyer then links me to a keyboard replacement unit and then says he doesn't know how much the repair would cost, but wants a $115 partial refund for both the item and the repair cost. told him just to ask for a full refund because it would be too much of a hassle on both of our parts and that I'd need a receipt or quote or something. Also, I do feel that such an issue shouldn't call for such a costly repair or even need the repair at all. He has yet to respond since I told him to request a full refund. Red flag?

 

The funds from the transaction just became available this morning. How long does he have to request a refund/file a case under the "item inaccurately described" clause (that's what he's calling it). I really just don't want this money to be tied up any longer. If it's a long window of time, I obviously won't be able to spend any of that money until the time passes. I'd rather just get the laptop back, fix the problem (if there is any), and then re-sell it. And does this sound like a scam? He did actually send me a video of the problem, but it wasn't that clear in terms of quality. We're in contact via MMS, email, and eBay, so he definitely got my message.

Member To Member Support question

there are two situations i have now related. if i give a partial refund for a sold item will the fees for that item be credited? And, i sold two inexpesive items to the same buyer and found that i can put both items in the same small flat rate box. he paid for separate shipping so i refunded him 5 from the sale for this combined shipping. mind you the buyer did not ask for combined shipping, and was very thankful for the 5 dollar refund. i did not see the fee for that shipping removed in this case 50 cents. i have another one pending where the box was trashed; it is my first  'arrived' damaged. so if i give a partial refund will i still pay the full fee, (shipping and item)? the shipping was more than the item selling price so i am a bit concerned.

thanx for your help,

How to bid or buy

Hello!

I've bought 5 beer steins and 1 collector's plate. I would like the seller to combine all items in one package in order to save on the shipping. However, combined invoice he charged me was with the lump summ of all items' shipping costs. As I've bought all steins very cheap, I think he wants to make additional income on the shipping costs. I had shipment of 14 steins and paid only $41 for it! And he now wants me to pay $80. I'm ready to pay for safe packaging and so on, but I'm not willing to pay double if he wants to earn on shipping. More, he doesn't respond to my multiply letters at all.

 

What should I do? Should I pay his invoice and file a claim to Ebay for fair shipping price? Or should I claim now until the seller sends me adequate invoice? Could You please tell me how to make such claims?

 

Thanks!

Best regards, Pavel

When look at an item description, it used to show the seller name, the number of transactions made by that seller, and the percentage of positive feedback received by that seller. Recently the item display format was changed to no longer show the seller's transaction count and percentage positive ratings! Instead, I must click on the seller name to see that info, and then click again to go back to the item. Why was this change made? I always look at those numbers as part of the purchase decision, so now I must do a lot more clicking. This change makes the shopping process much more tedious and discourages me from spending time shopping on eBay.

I bought an item for my son that was listed as his size, but when I got the item they were a smaller size that ge just outgrew & can't wear. I contacted seller immediately & after 24hrs was told to ship them back to her & she would issue a full refund & she gave me her return address but never sent a return shipping label. It is stated thst if item is not as described it's on the seller to pay for return shipping. I wrote back & requested the label. She sends me a cancellation request for the item, but it states to the buyer not to accept unless I haven't paid or have already been refunded in which case I have not.
