At first look I thought this was a picture painted on slag glass. On closer look the background appears to be painted glass and not slag glass.The backing is tin. Any thoughts on the approximate age based on the framing?
I have a very heavy blue & tan(?) speckle bowl. It's 13" across & approx. 3" high. It's pretty shallow for the size; I'm not sure what it would have been used for. The bottom is brown/black & there is a black mark that could possibly be an F or G. Any information would be super appreciated.
I bought this vase from an older lady who said it was antique. I actually put it away & just found it. I'm cleaning out my butler's pantry & finding a lot of forgotten items so this will probably be the first of a few posts
The vase is approximately 8" high & about 5" across the widest point (the "arms"). There is a lot of crazing....not sure if that is actually due to the age or not. The bottom is interesting. It feels different (kind of rough), there looks like there is a "seam" in the middle & there's a dark ring around the rim. Any information would be appreciated. Please let me know if you need additional information from me. Thanks in advance for your time, help, & expertise.
I found this mortar and pestle from my dad`s garage. Who can help me tell if this is real antiique?
