Today's Thrift Store Find African Wood Mask

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on June 24, 2017 at 1:40pm

Cleaning out a dresser drawer, I came across what looked like a tackle box, but inside was various items of theatrical makeup. I do not know anyone in my family that was in entertainment, amateur or pro. This is a mystery to me unless it was one of those things my parents obtained in a "box lot" at an auction many years ago and just put in in the dresser. Some of these items look "vintage".

Karin. some say yes, others say no. I always polish silverware and jewelry. It makes it shine for better pics and helps resell it as most buyers buy so they can wear it. Coins,no.

Hi Karin, No, cleaning silver never harms it, as long as its done properly using a metal polish ( no tarnix). It is the ONLY metal where this rule applies, just to let you know, in case you run across other metal items.

Also, I can't see the center hallmarks either, can you make them out at all? Just based on the looks of your lovely ring, it might have been made by Taxco Mexican artisans, which is good news, especially if you have one of the artists markings. 

Comment by Fred Silva on May 28, 2017 at 8:31am

Karin Lucas , The patina allows the ring to show its age. Depending on where or who made the ring could upset its value by cleaning it .
