Jeff Guy replied to Casey's discussion Cast Iron mechanical bank 'Jolly nigger bank'. in the group Whadja Find Today
"This was a widely reproduced bank in at least two versions, with and without a hat.  This looks definitely a repro to me, but not a recent repro from China which are the ones with Phillips head screws. The casting is too rough to be original -…"

Jeff Guy replied to nrunk's discussion elk painting in the group Whadja Find Today
"Anything is possible, but I think it is unlikely in this case. Bergstrom is a common name in Scandinavia so not surprising for more than one painter with that name. Compare the sigs - not only first with initials vs. initial with last, but slant…"

Jeff Guy replied to nrunk's discussion elk painting in the group Whadja Find Today
"You may be right about the signature, but a quick look at Endis' work makes me believe this couldn't possibly be by her not only because of the quality of the work, but because her signature is completely different."

Jeff Guy replied to todd's discussion Help identifying this rug please in the group Whadja Find Today
"Looks like a cotton warp, so that would say not Tibetan. Don't think 100 years old is accurate - I would say more like 50 or less, making it vintage not antique. You didn't label your pics so I don't know if you showed the back or not…"

Jeff Guy replied to todd's discussion Help identifying this rug please in the group Whadja Find Today
"From the pics you showed, it looks machine made to me. That is possible for a rug that old, but I wonder why they estimated it as 90 to 100 yrs old since I wouldn't have guessed that. To me it looks relatively modern, late 20th century. Pics…"

Jeff Guy replied to Jackie's discussion Carved Jade Turtle Antique? Chinese? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Sure, but my point was that an 18th century piece will be a lot of money on *any* site, and not just that one site. The relevant question is how old the piece is, and to me the piece and the writing in particular do not look very old, certainly not…"

Jeff Guy replied to Jackie's discussion Carved Jade Turtle Antique? Chinese? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Molly, keep in mind that your link is for an 18th century piece. So far we have absolutely no idea how old the OP's is. And no reason to expect it to be anywhere near that old or valuable. Asian pieces have been extensively reproduced and still…"

Jeff Guy replied to TGlo's discussion Tidbit serving plate.. is it Majolica and if so, who's the maker? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Della robia or della robbia pattern depending on how you want to spell it"

Jeff Guy replied to Jill Fisher's discussion Please help identify the purpose of this brown glazed ceramic piece, likely from Europe. in the group Whadja Find Today
"I don't think it could be coal since it would be broken in about two minutes of use. How about the base for a lamp (tv lamp maybe) or a clock? Wire through the small hole to electric item that sits on top."

Jeff Guy replied to Susan Marion Beaumont's discussion Special fork in the group Whadja Find Today
"I agree with michael that this started as a normal fork bent for some purpose. I also agree with him that we need a pic of the mark to say for absolute certain, but I disagree with him that this has much chance of being sterling. Based on what you…"

"John, you're a dealer right? You do this all the time? So I have to assume you know how to search for sold items on ebay. Its the first thing I do once I know the name of something. Maybe they're worth more, maybe less, but it gets you in…"

"Loom is not real old looking. I would guess a non-factory, home-made school (or other) project to show factory conditions, custom made wood loom with added dolls not designed for that purpose. As far as I can tell the idea of two workers on top of…"
