I know there used to be a board for vintage textiles but I couldn't find it now. If there is a more appropriate board for posting this, please let me know.
Lovely old quilt, approx. 90 by 72 in., but much of the appliqued fabric is worn thin or totally worn away. Could anyone tell me the pattern name and if it is worth anything in this condition?
Looks "older," to me, but I don't know how old. There's been some soldering repair done around the neck, and there's a broken piece on the edge. At least one piece of glass is cracked. No signature on it. 2" neck diameter x 12" rim diameter x about 9" tall.
Any thoughts on age, or anything else about it? Is there a name for the green, "bumpy" glass pieces?
Inside below, which shows the newer soldering around the neck.
This pattern is on a carving knife and fork set.The handles are unmarked and the blade and tines are stainless steel.TIA
I have a set of 9 (A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I) Whitman trading card 12 card sets. they have blank backs.
does anyone know the age or history of these?
Came across this box. Seems to be gilt on copper that was recently cleaned. Heavy loss of gilt. Not sure by the cleaning or the age. Measures about 6 1/2 X 8 X 4 inches high. Marked on bottom Tiffany & Co Makers 0200 5878 M. In all my years of being in the business, I have never seen one of these nor has my research turned up anything even remotely close. After a few, figured it ws a fake but something tells me it is not. so I do some research on the oval painting that is inset under glass on top. That is actually a well known miniature of the Qutub Minar in India painted on Ivory that typically sells for 500+
Any ideas guys..... Opinions
