Amie Deal and Mrs K.  The comment wall is for day-to-day conversations.  IT IS NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION & EVALUATION.

DIRECTLY above the Comment Wall you will see "+Add a Discussion".  Click on that and put your comments, pictures and replies there.

US Patent #48340 is for an improvement to a gas range dtd 1865. It could be from a different country.

Goats head pendant, Maybe LA Rams 1946-1995 or 2015-2018; or St Louis Rams 1995-2015? Could be 18k plated; have a jeweler test it.

Comment by Michael on January 12, 2018 at 9:05am

Mrs K

PAT48340 could be reference to Patent Pending Jewelry Numbers & Dates

Year 1865 for number between and including 45685 to 51783.

Also, this type of enquiry really should be posted into the discussions area above and you should try to include some photos of your item as well.

Here is another of my favorite pendants. This one is 18 karat with a diamond in the top. It was purchased ifrom a pawnshop on Maui, Hawaii in 2016 and I absolutely adore it! I have several unique pieces and have no idea of the backgrounds. I have been “pawn-shopping” for about 16 years and have found my most amazing pieces in out of the way shops, for the most part. This gorgeous piece has been a real challenge because no one seems to know where it came from or who the designer was.

When in Alaska this past spring, one jeweler asked if he could scan it for reproduction and I did allow him to do so. I Purchased my pendant for enjoyment and to save for my daughter.

Thank you for any information you might be willing to give.

I don’t mean to abuse the board with my jewelry,  but if others enjoy it as much as I do, then at least they will have fun looking. Thanks again for everything!

I have a necklace I was given by my grandmother who said it had belonged to her mother. On the back it has only one stamp - PAT48340. It is silver in colour with clear stones and a short drop. The stones are Individually held with claws and it secures with a sling and hook style clasp. I’m particularly interested in what they stamp means?

Actually, I found that if copying an image from another website and pasting via the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V, then it works no matter what I try to do, so long as I left click in the text box first where I want it to be pasted.

However, if I am copying and pasting via the right click function of the mouse, then I do need to right click at or anywhere before the blinking text cursor for the cut, copy, paste menu to pop up. If I right click anywhere below the last text or image entry made in the text box, a different menu appears containing other options such as save website page and view page source code etc...

Can someone else try this for me to confirm if that solves their problem or not?

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on January 10, 2018 at 3:14pm

Molly, did you find out how to "paste" yet?

The only other thought on the matter is "paste" will not work unless you type something FIRST. 

As a test, type "mm" then click Paste.  When it posts go back and erase "mm".

BTW I had the same problem and others do too.

Good luck!

I posted it in the discussion portion above along with what a Hippocampus is (besides a part of the brain!). I picked it up yesterday at an antique store, the seller thought it was stone but I deal mostly with metal so knew right away it was lead. I'm just not well versed in when/why/who/how on something like that. My wife knows mythology and I know metal so we decided it was cool enough to occupy a part of one of our walls.

Comment by Molly on December 30, 2017 at 6:28pm

Pardon me, I think I missed the LEAD part...

Carved out of wood?  Not part of the brain?  What do YOU know about it?
