You made a good investment there Tom.  I keep looking, I've some odd glass items that I have no idea where they came from that may either be worth something more than I paid for them or not.  Two decanter sets I have were supposedly made in Persia but no one can honestly identify them for me.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on February 27, 2015 at 1:42pm

Chris (& Others) don't sell yourself short.  The guy invested $100 and it's worth $45,000.  That's a ratio of 450 to 1.  For every $1.00 he spent he made $450.00.  That is great.

My greatest find to date was an unframed etching I  paid $.25 cents for.  I sold it for $1,200.  That's 4,800 to 1.

This is the best I've ever done, but I've scored big on other items too.

And so can you. Just keep looking.

Wow, thanks for sharing Vicki

Comment by Chris Pollock on February 21, 2015 at 8:44am

WOW is right Vicki, he sure made out didn't he.  A $100.00 investment worth up to $45k! I would never have such luck and actually I'd probably pass it by if I saw it at the GW. I guess I need to start examining everything I see there, maybe I'll get lucky. Thanks for sharing.

It's going to be awhile but I will share or maybe I'll share it in parts as I get some done. Still have to look up the butter dish, hopefully it's in one of my books.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on February 19, 2015 at 6:12pm

Awesome Chris - Congrats! Just remember though, prices on glass and pottery fluctuate greatly. The best way to see what is selling high is to look at Completed auction prices. Ebay is the obvious one, but there are several online auctions that do share results to.

I love the old Blue color, the newer one can't match it! Sounds like your slide show will be wonderful. Do share, whenever your able. :)

Vicki, been busy this week but did just get to looking up the Blue Madrid in my Mauzy's Depression Glass book. I see it was made from 1932 - 1938 and it's apparently easy to tell a reproduction by a '76' worked into the pattern. I looked it over and could not see a '76' so I'll have to believe that it's an original. I also noticed in the book the the value of this plate, as of 2004, was $100.00. I've still got hundreds of pieces to go through yet and photograph again and add to the slide show I'm creating. Only doing this so I know what everything is.
