"OOH, How exciting! Sounds like a dream house! We used to own an old Victorian Farm house, where we raised our kids for 14 years. It didn't have a garage and it was A lot for me to clean, but what fun it was to restore!
We built the one were in…"
"You need to unscrew those screws and see what is hiding, and take pictures. The center takes a large 150W bulb, maybe a 3-way bulb. Switch is on side,visible in pic. Missing light globe diffuser. 4 white metal bolts can be replaced with…"
"I will have to get it back out and take a look(pic) if bottom. Can't remember exactly what it looked like. I have been packing a lot because we bought our "biggest" antique yet, a pre 1880 Queen Anne Victorian house on a couple acres…"
"I actually think $35 is a pretty good price, for the market here in MI. UGH. It's bad. I'm only getting a few dollars for depression glass, except really nice pieces, and I'd prolly get around $25 for your set. The good news is that…"
"I thought Fenton too. But thought the $35 asking price was a bit low, so kept second guessing myself. After talking to the person that rents the booths and her telling me that that person had been bringing in a lot of her old glass, I decided to go…"
"Thanks. I got them from an individual on a local craigslist site for $40 for pair. Jumped fast because I believed it was the Coralene style in pics, but then was second guessing myself right afterwards thinking I probably paid too much. "
"They are gorgeous! They may be Victorian Era Glassware, could be USA, or European. You didn't include a photo of the base? Are they blown? Broken or smooth pontil?
Because they could also be not as old, from Czech Bohemia regions in Europe."
"Looks like old Fenton Ruffle on the pitcher, and applied handle would be correct as well. I'm not familiar with this type of glass though, I'm sure it has a particular name.
It would be best if you do some really good research first…"
"At the antique shops around me, pieces like yours are priced around $135-$150 per pair, or about $65-$75 apiece. If the coralene is really elaborate and unusual, it is certainly possible to be worth more. "
I would absolutely keep the original upholstery. Because it even has its original label, that will help to maintain its value. Recovering it will affect the value in a negative way. Such an exciting find to get an authentic French prie…"
Anyone recognize this? No sticker or makers mark. Got it from an antique mall on gulfcoast. Dealer was supposed to have a lot of old glassware that she was gradually selling. Any idea of value?See More
"Looks like Paul Gee is the moderator for the antique furniture section of the site. Maybe you could pose your question to a more specific group of individuals that would know more about the pros and cons. Like Mark said, however, if you…"

Not an avid antique collector, mainly due to the financial part of it, but do love it when I come across something that is within my financial "reach". But then I hate when i cannot find out the history on certain pieces, so hopefully this site will help.
