"The best way to access old glassware is to look at the foot, so you would need additional pics. My sense is that the sides are too straight and thick, so it is not hand-blown. The decoration also does not look very early to me. My guess would be…"
"Don't look to me to have great age. Do look to be made of tarnished cast brass. I would guess made in India early to mid 20th century, possibly some other far/middle/near eastern country. If the candle cups safely unscrew you can examine…"
"You didn't show the sticker. From what you did show, these are silver-plated bells from Japan, factory made in 20th century, probably 1970's/80's or so. The rings on the top are to pick them up, you don't slide them on your…"

"I think it is a tourist carving for visitors to Celafu Italy. Middle line looks like "incazio a mano" - carved by hand, "Celafu" as you already saw. If you can figure out the top and bottom line (maybe a signature or description)…"
"Thank you Michael, that is exactly what I needed to know!! That is exactly what I was looking for!! With that information, it was easy to find the post I was looking for. (Thanks also Molly, it sounds like you found it too, but I never got word that…"
"On a more positive note, I asked Jeff what he was looking for exactly and was able to use the Main Page Search bar and typed in the item and Voila! It was from 2015 or 2016. Yet, another way to search for one's contributions to…"
I can see exactly what you are seeing and you are correct in that the link shown on your page which states discussions with a number does not work, it does not work on mine either, however, if I click on your name link above each of your…"
