Picked up this piggy bank at an estate sale this weekend. Internet research has not been very productive. Could be Hull. Could be Shawnee. Could be repro. I just don't know. Any thoughts?
It's about 10 inches snout to tail, about 6 1/2 inches high, about 5 inches wide. Marked "U S A" no periods under the chin.
Looks old, but who knows. Some crazing under the glaze, but not excessive. This is hard to explain and I couldn't get it in a photo, but there is what looks like a line around the center like the top and bottom halves were joined together. You can feel a slight dip as you rub your finger from top to bottom over this.
Any help appreciated.
Hi guys! Am trying to find this old Sonia Rykiel globe and few more items - would love to add it to my collection of Rykiel items! Will appreciate if anyone can help with locating those )))
I've posted about this twice already and haven't been able to solve the mystery.
How is this possible?
What? It doesn't pick up items that have those words clearly in the title. Yet, when I add MORE words to the search window, it does pick up the items in the search results. See below.
So what gives? How come a search for "Arm's Reach" can't find my listing but "Arm's Reach Blue" can?
Hello everyone. What's new today?
Happy Monday everyone.
I cannot for the life of me think what to call the color of these pink beads. They are gorgeous and the necklace is in excellent condition. I look at it and think ombre, but I'm not sure that begins to describe it. Is there a name for this kind of coloring? It's hard to caputre it but the color is not faded, this is just how the beads were made, and each bead has a slightly different faded color pattern to it.
Can anyone tell me about this icon? I bought it today from an estate sale. It made from obviously old wood (see photo of back) and the nails holding the figure onto that wood are old hand forged nails.
Is the figure as old as it seems?
Are the words around the top & bottom of it the name of the saint it is suppose to be?
Are these Catholic?
I greatly appreciate any help with this.
So I am guessing these are earrings, any ideas on age?
It has the cig box, matches box, & ashtray.
Thinking there must be a name for it, but it escaIs there a specific name for this cigarette box?pes me.
The base piece is made of cast iron. It is painted black with gold highlighting. It has Patented Feb 17, 1874 stenciled on the underside. The base is 3" in diameter and it stands about 1 3/4" to the top of the bent spring. I don't think it is electrical as there aren't wire connections and the spring contacts the cast iron base and is not isolated like a heating element would be. Please help. Thanks in advance.
This is my latest addition to my collection and was trying to at least find a bracelet to match or marry. I have had no luck so far no markings but I love the silver-toned filigree cups in which the red tear drop stones nestle in the detail just amazes me.
This snow plow looks like something out of Mad Max movies!
If anyone out there has any information about thie location of this atomic bomb test, please let me know. Thanks so much.
I just picked up this bowl recently. It is unmarked. The exterior is black with a light blue interior. The interior is crazed. The interior has a black "ink splatter design." The exterior has little divots/marks/craters throughout. The base or "foot ring" is unglazed, however the rest is indeed glazed. The bowl's diameter is 5 1/2" at its widest point. The height is 3".
I have no idea how to research this bowl and its origin. Any help is appreciated.
I was hoping one of the Coach experts could supply some info on this wallet
She is about 16 3/4" long. Her eyes close and open. She is all cloth, but the face feels quite hard, like something other than fabric. I think here eyes are glass. When they are closed, her eyelids are somewhat shiny, like plastic. Can you tell me anything about her age or name? Thanks so much.
The following is the part Im confused on

14k and aquamarine, off to its new home.
Moriah Jewelry bracelet, also gone to a new home. Unmarked sterling. It says I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine in Hebrew.
I got this yesterday from a friend I used to go to storage auctions with. He owns a used furniture store now that he cupplies exclusively through things he finds at auction. He found this in a unit & sold it to me for $50 (with another gold chrome 2 level table) because it isn't something his clients would go for. I jumped o it because I like it - but now I need to know what it is!
I'm guessing a portable bar (the glass shelves were wrapped & marked "Shelves for Bar") like a bar cart or trolley, but it's the first one I've seen that you can unlatch and it swings all the way (or 1/2 way - it looks cool either way) open to become a buffet? or long table? with a smaller lower 2nd shelf on 1 side for glasses, plates, etc.. I think.
But I can't find anything like it. Un less it has a name I don't know, 'Large mid century bar trolley that swings open' doesn't bring up anything similar.
Also, how do I clean the chips & scuffs? It is only along a edge & probably happened from the glass being placed & removed, but where the gold chrome (?) has been lost there is a small amount of rust from the metal underneath being exposed). Should I touch it up with gold paint?
I appreciate any help.
Any idea who made these vases , I have been researching and Hopi is the one that they look like the most but not sure, they measure about 6 1/2" H ,one of them has some initials marks but did not find any with that letters, thanks in advance.
Are the pink beads opalite, or does anyone know the term for the effect...there is a glow at certain angles..
I found this MASSIVE heart shaped pin in one of my lot purchases...it is 3 1/2" wide x 4" long. I have never seen a pin this big, so I am wondering if it could be an embellishment for something else??? It has a classic pin back but there is no fold over clasp and it doesn't look like there was one there and broken off????
HERE IS THE BACK
So this pin is pretty neat I have identified it have been made in the early 1900's. It is unmarked but tests to be 10k-12k. It weighs almost 6 grams. I know that in the early 1920's when they found King Tut's tomb the Egyptian revival sprung up. And some companies were setting real Egyptian artifacts in gold. Do you think this is a real Egyptian artifact? It measures 25mm by 20mm.And if it is real what do you think the value is?
I know nothing about pottery, but this vase caught my eye because of the unusual marking on th bottom. Do you know who would have used this mark? It looks like a koi fish.
Any help is appreciated. Carolyn
I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask...if anyone recognized this pattern? And maybe help with a description? I learned the stem might be called 'bulbous'. Double boulbus? Also, I think they have 15 panels? I looked at Replacements and found nothing. Appreciate any opinions!
So I am wondering if this Kirks Folly Mermaid Siren pin is an earlier piece, possibly 80's since there is no enamel on it. I have search and hoping someone on the board may know or have directional help. Many thanks!
I have come across this napoleonic dresden figural scene in one of my local antqiue stores and wanted to get some opinions on what a "fair" price would be for it. They are asking around $1240 for it now. Assuming its in good condition does this sound like a fair value?
I am a porcelain novice and would love any help or opinions. Thank you in advance.
Can anyone please identify this pattern name? I was thinking either Fostoria of Tiffin, but not finding it. The candle holder has a slightly different pattern but was purchased from the same estate as the glasses. Thanks
Can you tell me what company might have made these vintage bowls? Bauer, Fiesta or ?????
The rings on the biggest bowl are flat, the rings on the two smaller bowls are slightly raised and rounded.
Thanks for the help
I was told this stone is carnelian; the metal is marked 9K, which I'm assuming is 9 k gold. I'm trying to date the pin; is it victorian? Any value here? The pinback is broken off. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Maybe it's just plain old nothing but how would you describe it? Anyone see anything that would tell you an era or age? Anything will help Thanks
Hope someone can help with this. I cannot get the photo any clearer.
I would like to use clear FedEx lable pouches like those below to ship packages via USPS. Note that once the paper label is in the pouch, the FedEx logo is not visible. Is this permitted by USPS? I actually cannot find any information about the USPS allowing plastic pouches for labels at all. Do they?
Good morning all. I recently purchased a huge lot of vintage and newer ornaments from an estate and am hoping someone can help with identifying a couple of them. Neither have maker marks. I've found a few that are similar in style, by De Carlini, but not sure if these were made by them or someone else. Any information/help would be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
Can someone possibly tell me what this is? It measures 8 1/2" in length and is made of tin on the base and another metal (the arms, finial). Is it possibly the bottom for an old hanging lamp possibly an old Kerosene or Gas lamp? Any comments are greatly appreciated.I boughtt a box of antique lamp parts and it was among the pieces.
Anyway, back to this prayer rug that is supposed to be old.... is it? It seems unusual to me because it's flat with no real pile to speak of. Looks more faded in person then some of the pictures show(to me it looks better viewed from the side). Measures approx. 43 X 56 inches. See the pictures below and tell me what you think. Anyone know the area it was made? age? any value(did I waste 45 bucks)? lol
Thanks for any info you can share, greek38
I have an open case, that eBay wrote to me asking if I wish to escalate the case.
but! I can not find a menu where I can click on: "Escalate this case "
Here's a screenshot of my case:
How can I solve my problem ?
Hi! I'm new around here, and I don't know much about jewelry, especially fine jewelry.
I have a really beautiful brooch that appears to be silver (it's tarnished). It's covered in natural pearls. Has anyone seen this particular design before? Could it be a designer piece? It came with clip-on earrings, but one of them has some pearls missing. I feel like it's probably mid-century, but I'm clueless. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!!
Have had other pieces of lace like this and am pretty sure they were hand made. I love the help I receive from knowledgable people here, so I hope I don't drive you nuts asking about my piddly pieces of lace.
These pieces are from a set of tableware I got from my gandmother. She and my mom are no longer around to ask about these pieces -- tablecloth, table scarf, doilies and place mats -- all made with the same thin thread and fragile looking pattern. Has to be at least 25 years old, but could be much older. . . I just don't know and should have asked more questions.
Closeup photos of lace are included. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
Found a ceramic centerpiece with dragon and I can't read the bottom. Any help will be appreciated.
Got this in a jewelry lot. It appears to be a resin material and it's unmarked. Is it just cheap costume?
This is not marked and could have had a hangtag at one time. For some reason this reminds me of a certain designer, but the light bulb is just not coming on =P. Opinions appreciated!!

Need help identifying. Thank you.
d help identifying this.
Curious about this old set of maps I have. There are five of them and they are about 4' x 3' in size. They are dated 1945.
Tried looking around and don't see any examples. Anyone know if these are fairly common?
Can anyone help me with identifying this brand of men's vintage wool cowboy or stetson style hat? Came in an early stetson box...from estate...but do not recognize this label. Thanks for your help!
I'm looking for any help on identifying the maker of this cut glass goblet.
It has a cut stem. The bowl has a half cut flower and foliage, along with slant cuts alternating with ovals on the lower part of the bowl. It has a wide, straight, subtle optic. There are punties cut on the foot.
I've found simliar shapes in Tiffin and Seneca, but not a definite match so far. I'm not as concerned about identifying the pattern as much as the maker. Although if someone knows the pattern, that would be great, too.
They stand just under 8" tall (less than 1/8" under). I have a set of 11 and plan to list them, but it's helps so much to know the maker. I'd also like the opinion of our cut glass experts on whether you think this is a good piece, nice cut or just average. I think it's nice, but I've only been collecting for a couple of years and have much to learn.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
Hello All! Can someone tell me if this 6 1/4" dia heart pattern filigree bowl is Russian or middle eastern? It appears to be silver, however I couldn't find any marks! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.
How do I select the international site visibility listing upgrade foprt UK? The help files only tells me that I CAN do it to make my listing appear on the eBay UK site, but does not explain how to do it (see below). Also, do I have to do it before submitting the listing, or can I change an existing listing to include UK visibility? Thanks!
There are 2 ways to list your items internationally.
Use the international site visibility listing upgrade.
You can purchase this listing upgrade for some eBay websites, to maximize your item's visibility in search results on those sites.
Hi all, I have this small watercolor painting. I am guessing it is from 50s or 60s. It is signed, but I cannot make out signature. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hi, Does anyone recognize this porcelain hallmark? Thanks!
Any idea about the signature? I saw this in the booth next to mine and I snapped a few pictures.

This little box meaures 2 1/2 inches wide and just over an inch tall. It is marked with what looks like the Crossed L,s and an S inside, with an L and three dots underneath. I have been researching Sevres and imitations but haven't found it. Does anyone recognize it? It is also marked France, and is marked on the base and on the lid. Is this most likely a pill box? Thanks for any insights!

I have a large Barbie doll house that has been in storage for awhile. The bottom says 1995 Mexico.
When I try to let down the porch with the columns there is a resistance and I'm afraid to force it
and possibly break it. I know very little about Barbie products but maybe someone will recognise
and know the secret to open it. Probably any child from two up could do it. lol
The back opens easily but when I try to let the front porch with the columns it catches and I feel it
will break. I don't know if its because it's been stored for a pretty long time so I've tried to wash it up
some but so far no go. I have tried to lift it up and out, press down on it, even looked to see if the
columns need to be removed. I really don't think it would be that complicated for a child so I am
asking here since you have a lot of Barbie experts.
Also if anyone knows the name I would appreciate. I did see one that looked pretty close and it
doesn't seem to be one of the more expensive houses but I still don't want to break the plastic.
Games? No computer or phone needed for this one!
I'm trying to figure out who made these pretty pieces,no marks on them. The Brooch is 2" in length. The colours are quite nice, but they don't show up very well in the photos. It has been a while since I've posted, hope the photos are okay.
Any ideas appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
Please help to verify if this bag is real, and if so, is it's name Coach Ergo?
After I do this a new tab is created in Adobe with the labels, when I go to print them the first label is fine and then the rest of them are in a font that is so compressed and on top of each other.
Anyone have a solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance.
Every item that is listed as a CBR 600 F4i and has a product that looks like this is wont fit. It's a rear hugger for a CBR600RR, a COMPLETELY different bike. There's over a hundred listings for this item and all of them are wrong.
So get a load of this, I buy an iphone 5c (sprint) on dec 6th it arrives the 10th woohoo i think...The phone turns on operates as it should, christmas comes and i deliver this shiny like new phone to my girlfriend she goes to sprint on the 27th to hook up the phone. This is where things go downhill. She tries to connect the phone only to have sprint say that the phone is still connected to a sprint account and we can not do anything to disconnect the phone from its origional owner. Now 2 weeks go buy i get her another phone that worked perfectly from a local friend to settle my girl down. I contact the seller to get a refund they refuse to issue me a refund claiming they will "do whatever they need to do rectify the situation" by having the person im dealing with at sprint call them. **bleep** this is what i need to go thru after i paid for a product from someone?! not only that i paid an absolute premium for the phone. Today i found out you can open up a case with ebay and they told me its past 30 days and im pretty much SOL when i have numerous messages adressing this within the "30 Days" I guess this shows exactly how much ebay "guarentees" your money back what a joke! Thank god this person isnt local !!
Ebay feel free to chime in.
Violated Unhappy Customer
Every year, for the past ten years it seems, about this time the USPS raises the rates.
I've heard nothing ... and that's fine, but I'd hate to be caught by surprise with so many listings with free shipping that would need a price increase to compensate for it.
What's going on?
I was using the GSP. I had a buyer who managed to skate around that (I posted days ago on that) on an auction. I contacted them and told them that I only use GSP and so they no longer want the item, which is fine. I cancelled it as an address problem.....but even with a few nice messages, they won't agree to the cancelation. The fees are only a few dollars so not a big deal but to I just let the case sit open? Nothing was paid for and nothing was shipped.
Ok.. I went to give feedback on an item I received that I KNOW I did not give feedback on and it says I could not give feedback for that item because feedback was already given...???? Anyone else ever come across this and why?
Does anyone had a luck to get real help from Ebay Customer support?
I had a request opened and every time i try to get the details on the site would say "Oop! We are having technical hick-ups". No matter how deep I tried it will take me back to first or secong page of CUstomer Support?
My issue #1: I haven't received the item for which I paid 5 and half months ago. I gave the benefit of doubt- I gave extra time bcs it was sent back first time bcs of our mail office mistake, and he was seller from Turkey - still 5 and half months - it just too much. The Ebay Resolution Center would not let me open Request bcs Ebay Buyer Protection time is expired. That is why I needed to reach Ebay Customer support. Tried at least 20 times. Am I so dump or simply I should stop buying at Ebay? Such a shame, hence I was happy buyer since 2006 - one can get a really good deals on Ebay.
My isuue #2: I returned the item to seller after e-mail correcpondences 2 months ago. I still haven't received the credit for the item back and emailed the seller guy few times - no responses at all. What should I do as a buyer when seller is not responding nor I can get help or assistance from Ebay Customer Support?
I would appreciate any response and/or any tips!!!

The item I'm wanting to list is very heavy. I don't want to charge too much or not enough. I've seen in other posts that the shipping calculator calculates the cost of shipping to your own zip code. Thanks
Obviously I messed something up with a return...
Someone bought (and obviously wore) a pair of dance shoes. They asked to return them based on wrong size so I clicked to return for a refund and turned out they were at the front door. I went ahead and refunded the original price minus the original shipping as per my return terms. It shows that I still owe them the $9 original shipping cost. It said that it was due by Feb. 5th. Is it okay to just ignore it or is there something that I should do? I cannot find out how to file for a final value fee credit. Can I not file for one if I charge them the orignal shipping fees?
Thanks in advance.
I just got a ding on one of my items.. says they arrived broken.. ! They were fine when they left here.. Never contacted me or emailed me. Why are customers allowed to do this??? I just don't get it. Common sense.. Go back to the store first and left them make it right before acting on emotion!
RE: potential buyers on eBay using small tablets or smart phones for viewing seller listings
Hi, I have a question...with the current technology that buyers might be using to view eBay (mobile Smart phones and Tablets)
...do you need to increase the size of the type font when you create a listing for eBay ? so they can see it , properly read item the text descriptions ? I currently use 13 pt. to 18 pt. and 24 pt...is that big enough?
i find alot of good things on ebay. but i think that some r just too high on stuff. they relly go crazy when it comes to bidding ! they will have a great deal on a part or what ever else. then people will get too bidding on something & just bid it beyond reason lol. i wish i had money like that lol.
I have added a few friends to my Answer Center profile. How do I delete a friend? Thanks for any help.
I sold an iphone 5 for $150. I made sure to ship the item after it showed the buyer paid for the item. I used ebay to print a shipping label so the tracking information was automatically uploaded. It shows that the item was delievered Monday 1/26/15 however the sell contacted me today 1/27/15 saying they didn't receive the item. What do I do?
Its my first time selling on ebay and I don't want to be scammed by a buyer.
I have an inexpensive item that was bid on by a person who got around my BB list by creating another ID. I have called ebay CS and they said they would take
care of it, that the person indeed was the same, and they were violating Ebay policy. This was 2 days ago and yet HIS BID IS STILL THERE. Ebay gave me a
return contact number for the report. Do I proceed to sell it to him? Item ends in 4 hours and he is the only bidder.
I'm relatively new here on this board but am reading as much as I can to find out what just happened to me today. I'm still in the dark and would love help.
The auction I was bidding on was running out, my highest bid was still in the green as the clock went to 0. I was 100% sure I'd won, since my (green) bid price was $13.50 and my highest bid left room to go up to $28. Victorious, I went to my summary page to pay for the item. And then I don't see it. So I go back to the item page and see that it was listed as SOLD for $29.
HOW did this happen? I never got any indication that anyone had topped my $13.50. Ever! So then I went to see the bid break-down, and in total disbelief, I saw some bids that happened that I never saw on my end. (See screen shot)
1) How did my counter go to zero with $13.50 showing as my winning bid price (when there was clearly other activity)?
2) How did the winning buyer who hadn't participated at all in the bidding know to bid exactly $29 when they never saw my top bid?
* I will concede that it's possible the item total jumped to $17.50 as I was watching the ticker. Allowing for the fact that my eyes were trained on the ticker going to 0, but I see that there was a bid that came in at $17 (screenshot) and and my automatic bid kicked in at $17.50, so that may have updated on my screen without catching my attention (because the numbers stayed green and there was a .50 on the end of it and everything was still green as I was watching the counter go to 0). So the only real question I still have is #2. How did this super-bidder (see screenshot) swoop in AFTER the clock went to zero. How did they get a bid in? I'm so upset.
I feel like this is incredibly shady, because I just don't understand how it could have happened. Can anyone shed some light? I'm using Safari, in case that makes a difference.
I sold a EVGA GTX 650 Ti boost, and clearly stated as USED. Took a picture with the items that came with the product. Now the item has arrived at the buyer, she wants a return because the item did not come with the cables/connections; DVI.
Exact Quote here" It s bad enough the seller doesn t tell you that the card is missing DVI connections until after I paid for it, but seller said nothing about it also missing the 6-pin power to motherboard cable. The ad says nothing about missing anything. For $161, I expect to have an honest ad or everything included that came with the card in the first place."
What should I do? When I buy used items from Ebayer's I never expect to receive all the components as it was brand new.
Just noticing I am now being charged .30 insertion fees for my items. I am not a store seller, and simply relist the item if it does not sell. There is no way the six items I am relisting per week, for six days, would exceed the 100 or 150 allotted per month.
Can anyone clarify for me what is going here?
This is probably going to drive me away from ebay once and for all. I am not paying for items to list that don't sell at reasonably listed prices.
Had a buyer cancellation this morning. (my first)
I approved the cancel, the buyer was refunded. However, the item still appears in my sold list awaiting payment. Is it safe to just delete this item from the list? I've already re-listed.
Thanks in advance for any answers
I have noticed that buyers will say anything to avoid paying the return cost. I recently sold an item, in used condition. The buyer stated things that were wrong with it, but these etails were clearly vissable in the photos I listed. One wasn't even true. So, this buyer either didn't even bother looking at any of the photos, or just wants an excuse to not spend money.
All they have to do is say it wasn't as described; it doesn't matter if it was or not. I called ebay about this, pointed out the clear and obvious faults listed (which were minor, in any case), and they would do nothing about it. The woman said something about 'hassle free'. Well, it also says 'buyer pays'.
So, even though the listed may have 'buyer pays return shipping', they really don't have to. It is very mis-leading. The only way to get rid of it that I can see, is not to offer returns- but that doesn't really matter either; all the buyer has to do is say it wasn't as described. This becomes a matter of opinion; I could list all 12 possible photos, describe everything, and any fault can still be found if one is creative.
As I sell more and more, I began to notice how people can work the system to their advantage. Ebay can't side with both buyer and seller, so they tend to go with the one that makes them the most profit, usually the buyer. They wan't the buyer coming back.
Does anyone have any advice about how to avoid this issue?
I'm about to print my shipping label but my only option of shipment is Fedex. I'm trying to click the dropdown box and select USPS but it doesn't do anything. Before there was some kind of agreement notice from Fedex, but now I can't select USPS. Is this a bug or did something happen? My original listed item was for USPS First Class.
Customer purchased 1 item paid with paypal.
Must have decided he needed 3 more, purchased and paid with paypal.
I would like to save him money by combining the 2 purchases into one FRE.
If I refund patially through paypal for shipping will I get a defect?
If so I will not partially refund and send him 2 separate packages
Thank you for any and all answers.
I received an item in the wrong size and I contacted seller rather than following eBay's return process which I've heard hurts the seller. She said she will happily refund and pay for the return shipping and I have spent two days trying to find the cheapest way to ship the item back. I can't go to the post office due transportation issues but I found an unused tyvek priority mail envelope in my trash that another seller had used for interior packing. Problem is that it's a regular priority envelope which will cost $9.97 whereas a flat rate tyvek would only cost $5.05. Here is my question: can I write FLAT RATE on this envelope and print a flat rate label or will the postal carrier refuse to take it, or if he does, will it be refused when it gets to the post office?
I know I can order some flat rate envelopes online but I hate to keep the seller waiting for her merchandise.
A buyer is not satisfied with his item and I'm offering him a partial refund based solely on trust. After receiving the payment, I presume he can still go ahead and give me negative feedback and no eBay rule would prevent that. What's my discourse on that? Can I message him making it part of the settlement that he cannot and should he still do that, can I email eBay to delete the negative feedback rating from my profile?
I'm a new seller and i was brand new in Ebay back in 2012 as well, but someone bought a 35 Dollar purse from me, the person is out of the UK and has 0 feedback and been in Ebay since today January 26 2015 when the purchase was made.
I was getting ready to print the shipping label and became aware of the address and the buyer. Should i be concerned?
I did not have a restrictions of any kind in the item.
The item it's already paid as well.
I know that if i don't want to Ship internationally i can put it there and also restric buyers i guess but i just havent run into this situation and i know it's only $35 but i would rather not lose it,
Thank you in Advance for your responses!
