"I was given 2 iron banks. One like yours and one of a clown. The person that gave them to me was certain they were old and they looked it. Deep inside the guts of them I was able to see a tiny sticker that read "Made in China". Not saying…"
"Since the brush really doesn't look like it matches anything, maybe someone just decided to hang one there. I would think that if it belonged, it would have had at least a brass handle on it to match the stand. It looks too sort of cheap to be…"
"They sell this quite a bit today, for example on QVC. My mom bought me one, only where the hole is on the bottom, a light that flickers, like a flame, fits in there. It looks like yours is missing the whole mechanism that fits in there. It's…"
I am glad I bid on those statues (and you didn't). LOL They really are nice. I was surprised I got them for $2. I don't think I want to sell them though. As far as a relative, Lori, sorry, I don't think my ex has a relative by…"
I thought I recognised those French Revolution statues. I was going to bid on them but decided to pass. :( Do you have an inlaw relative by the name of Lori around the age of 57. If so tell her I said hello. :) Great site, Molly and…"
"All I can say is WOW. I had no idea they could really be worth nearly that much. I just bought them because the detail was so beautiful. I don't resell, I just buy for my own pleasure. Yep, they only cost me $2.00."
"Nice find, Molly! That's definitely the same mold. I'm not convinced that they are by Paul Bocquillon as the auction house stated, though. He worked for Berger and painted berger lamps beginning in the 30s, but prior to that he was most…"
"I looked again underneath them and there is something written in gold that looks like the number 27. No damage to them, no missing fingers, etc. They are large and heavy. I paid $2.00 for them. I read that sometimes Vione Baury figurines are…"
"Very pretty! They're not Meissen though. True Meissen is relatively easy to spot...the quality of the workmanship is incredible and it was wildly expensive even in it's time. In fact, I don't think yours are German at all. The…"
"Electrical cord says 1970s or newer; note it has an in-line rotating off/on switch.
Weird that sticker is inside the globe but mentions the base...doesn't make sense.
Bisque is an unglazed white porcelain."
I thought I recognised those French Revolution statues. I was going to bid on them but decided to pass. :( Do you have an inlaw relative by the name of Lori around the age of 57. If so tell her I said hello. :) Great site, Molly and Tom are the best. Try looking under V&B French statues on sold listings from UK. Seen one on there with a bottom like yours without the anchor. If you're selling them try adding UK ebay site. They should bring around 4 to 5 hundred $.
