Any ideas on a maker of this set?
The "tomatoes" do actually look real enough, that people walk up to them expecting the real thing! Thanks!
Anyone recognize this small vaseline opalescent brides basket. The bowl itself is about 3" tall and 4 7/8" in diameter. It is about 7' tall with frame.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Does anyone know anything about this vase?
I am confused by the two different images on the opposite sides.
I know NOTHING about this vase so any info/guesses is very much appreciated.
More pics to follow
OMG, can eBay not leave ANYTHING alone!? Every time I come here, it's different. Had to Google for a link to this category, couldn't figure out how to find it otherwise. ::sigh::
Anyway. I recently purchased a teapot which is out of my usual collecting focus. My research indicates it is "American Belleek", with a mark indicating it was made by Lenox between 1906-1924. I noted that many other teapots with this mark have similar handles and finials, apparently a common design trait. However, I cannot find another one like this. I would like to know if this shape has a name, or belongs to a specific line. The quality is exceptional compared to the Thirties and Forties colorware I usually collect, the only imperfections I can find are a few tiny glaze pops and a glazed over crumb. I was wondering, as most of the other pots I saw are very ornately decorated, if this would have precluded it from being decorated, and designated it as a second, or was it meant to be starkly elegant and simple? I do intend to list this pot to finance my own obsession, so would also be interested in an opinion of what a collector might pay for it (yup, I know book values are worthless!) Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Hope I haven't messed up with these pics, last I knew, eBay auto-resized them if they were too big? Would also appreciate any gentle advice on what for me, is yet another "new format" for these boards.
Please help me identify this pattern.
