Jeff Guy replied to Mike Smee's discussion Tall Jug: any idea of value in the group Whadja Find Today
"Yes, this one made in Indonesia, def not mid-century. Pretty recent. In fact there is a copyright date of 1999 if I'm reading it correctly."
Jeff Guy replied to Dawn Bowe's discussion Identify silver tray age? maker? in the group Whadja Find Today
"My impression is that this is silver-plated, and not silver - mainly because of the handles and high spots of grape decoration. These are the high spots which would show the most wear,  where the thin layer of silver electroplate shows through…"
Jeff Guy replied to bill gilsrud's discussion anyony know about this smelted syracose bar? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Well, I'm highly skeptical and I've handled a lot of silver. If it was a silver bar, then it would be marked with a purity mark (percentage). Furthermore, there are apparently a lot of these Babbitt metal bars floating around; check out…"

Jeff Guy replied to bill gilsrud's discussion anyony know about this smelted syracose bar? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It's marked Syracuse, not Syracose. I think Michael established that this is bearing metal, mostly made of tin. Don't think it is worth paying for an assay. Babbitt metal used to be used for bearings, but nowadays I think the best use is…"

Jeff Guy replied to Cheryl lajeunesse's discussion Is this a civil war saddle, bags and gun sheath? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Antique saddles are a very specialized field and you are best off finding a place where they know a lot about them. For example you could contact the guy that runs the following site (where they sell reproduction military saddles) and see if he or…"

Jeff Guy replied to Becky miller's discussion Cedar chest #2 in the group Whadja Find Today
"No, monograms (like they used to put on silver and clothing) almost always put the last name in the center position, which letter was made the largest monogram rules. So NCG in this example."

Jeff Guy replied to House of Charm Antiques Southinc's discussion Old Dog/Bar art in the group Whadja Find Today
"Auction estimate of 60-100 pounds ($70-120) here; I doubt it is worth conserving unless you want to keep it yourself."

Jeff Guy replied to dave smith's discussion Copper Art Pieces in the group Whadja Find Today
"Assuming these weren't produced commercially (in which case they would likely be marked), these are most likely a craft item from some unknown craftsperson, produced by someone with the powdered enamel paints and a small oven to cook them in.…"

Jeff Guy replied to Becky miller's discussion Cedar chest #2 in the group Whadja Find Today
"Does either side of your family have a last name ending with G? If so, then this used to belong to cousin NCG. NCG on front would have been initials of the first owner, personalized. I would guess some company other than Lane, since Lane marked…"

Jeff Guy replied to Bill Stephenson's discussion VINTAGE SET OF BLACK AMERICANA WOOD CARVED FIGURINES AND BAMBOO BOAT in the group Whadja Find Today
"My first impression is made in Haiti, so not really black americana as much as caribbean tourist item (possibly some other caribbean island too). You didn't mention what they are made of"

Jeff Guy replied to judy grizzaffi's discussion Vintage Linen in the group Whadja Find Today
"Maybe "Hand Blocked". Fabric has been and is still done this way in India, inking up a wooden block and pressing it on plain fabric. You sometimes see the old wooden pattern blocks imported to this country as decoration. Something labelled…"

"Would there be a seam in Czech glass from that era (see the base)?"

Jeff Guy replied to Stuart beard's discussion Dutch carved oak sideboard in the group Whadja Find Today
"Wait, you two guys (Michael and Stuart) have an identical piece of furniture like this? That is nuts! And makes it more likely that it is a more recent piece. What countries are the two of you in? Can either of you take a picture of the drawer…"

Jeff Guy replied to Stuart beard's discussion Dutch carved oak sideboard in the group Whadja Find Today
"Not much more to add. I don't see how it could split into two parts? I also would suspect it is American with Dutch-style carving and not Dutch, assuming you are located in the US. Showing the drawer construction should help confirming your…"

Jeff Guy replied to Scott's discussion Can anyone identify this painting in the group Whadja Find Today
"You call it a painting, but it looks more to me like a print - though your pictures aren't good enough to be sure. If it is a painting I assume it is watercolor? If it is a print it has very little value. So you should focus on being sure of…"
