Hi Tom, the tray measures 9 1/2" X 1/4". The reason I used the term mex is that there are three letters (mex ?) lightly written in ink on the back. I have never seen anything like this before. This does have some slight damage, but overall I think it is great. Thanks for whatever help you can give me. I am stumped..

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on Saturday

Jan, you should actually post this up above. Click the "+ Add a Discussion"link.

You are in Whadjafind comment wall and as others comment on other things your post becomes disjointed and lost.  Posting above keeps all your comments and replies and pics together.

Here is a link to your 7 pics on your Member page.  http://iantiqueonline.ning.com/photo/photo/listForContributor?scree...

I have 2 questions.  What is the size (diameter) and you named some of your pics "Mex"...is this tray Mexican?

Don't answer here; start another post above.

Comment by Jan Smith on Friday

Ok, now that I think I am in the right place I will try again. Please help identify this enamel on copper tray. You can go to my Jan Smith page for more photos. Thank you! mex2.jpg  copper1.jpg

Dave, I see a crown on top; I suspect it may be from Canada or UK.

Copy/paste also works.

Dave, try this link and search for a similar image. https://www.google.com/search?q=cast+iron+mailbox+rider&tbm=isc...

DAVE - Above the comment section there is formatting boxes. First says "LINK" second says "Image" when you put your cursor on it. Click the image one and then it will say "browse" where you find and click on the picture you want it to load.

Hi. New guy here. I bought a cast iron Victorian post mounted mailbox(minus the post and base )I believe the manufacture date on it is October 1895 if I'm reading it correctly. It's model #1000 by the Berkeley products inc. I'm going to have it media blasted and then refinish it and mount it on my own post. Has anyone ever seen an original one like I believe I have?it has the man on horseback on the front. I don't know how to post pics on this page. Thanks for any help.

I don't see the large knots so much in the chair, but it sure looks pine to me. I have seen maple with some large knots before, I just think this is pine. A lot of "crafters" work in pine.

As far as pricing, I would say that you have proved that $20.00 was too high for the audience you reached. It you are going to market it in the same place and the same way as last time, I wouldn't expect to sell it, though it is possible that you find the person that would buy it at that price that missed it last time. In another market and different audience it could well bring the $20.00.

Tini Sangan, about your African male sculpture -- try thumping him and considering this.  From here, he looks to be made of cast metal.  Sculptors add pigments to alter the color of a cast.
