Jeff Guy replied to Beverly Frick's discussion Is this a medallion or a coin???? Anyone know? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Are you sure about the size? It may be a dubloon, from New Orleans Mardis Gras, if it is smaller than you said. They throw them from the floats during Mardis Gras parades. Usually made of aluminum or aluminum alloy, some of the older ones are made…"

Jeff Guy replied to Jacob Lee's discussion Asian figure in the group Whadja Find Today
"Because of the base of the figurine, I think that is neither bone nor ivory, but resin (plastic). You can find tests online to determine for sure what it is made of."

Jeff Guy replied to Alex tindle's discussion Vintage pewter belts harley Davidson to Hennessey whiskey in the group Whadja Find Today
"Looks to me like someone had the holder with buckles on a retail case in a mall, then got out of the business. These sell for $10 to 15 each on eBay, with only a couple like Harley for up to $40. Sold listings…"

Jeff Guy replied to Christine Sabol's discussion Candleholders in the group Whadja Find Today
"I'm surprised no one here is old enough to have seen the Dansk candleholders made in the 60's and 70's. They made tiny candles for the candleholder, and were pretty readily available at places with imported goods. Here's a sample…"

Jeff Guy replied to Rochelle's discussion Old plaster electrobronzed finish semi nudes in the group Whadja Find Today
"Apparently you found the listing the OP is referring to. But that listing is pretty clearly not accurate and fanciful - here is a real bronze by Wood (notice the difference):"

Jeff Guy replied to Rochelle's discussion Old plaster electrobronzed finish semi nudes in the group Whadja Find Today
"These look different from both those sculptors and look rather generic to me. The idea that pieces like this could be maquettes is also rather fanciful. Plaster pieces like this were much cheaper to reproduce than bronzes so made for the mass…"

Jeff Guy replied to TGlo's discussion Old Redware Vase - Info please in the group Whadja Find Today
"Form is not traditional. Decoration is not traditional. Way too thick and heavy to be usable. Surface patina is easy to add. It isn't a fake or reproduction, because there is no old pottery that looks like this. It is simply a newer piece made…"

Jeff Guy replied to TGlo's discussion Old Redware Vase - Info please in the group Whadja Find Today
"It looks new or newish. That flower decoration is not traditional Indian. Similar new rustic ware seen at TJMax, etc."

Jeff Guy replied to Zeke's discussion American Folk Art Relief on Veneer or Antique Plywood - Appreciate Comments in the group Whadja Find Today
"This could have been a home project published in Popular Science/Popular Mechanics/Workworker etc. magazines of the mid-century period. Being made from a pattern would explain why the figure in these two is almost identical, but the background…"

Jeff Guy replied to Zeke's discussion Query - Silver Plate Mark - Old Sheffield Attributed to H. Wilkinson ca1825 in the group Whadja Find Today
"So I guess you have both now reached the same conclusion that I stated early on, namely that these are cast electro-plate, and therefore NOT old sheffield plate. Would be good to listen before incorrectly "correcting" others."

Jeff Guy replied to Zeke's discussion Query - Silver Plate Mark - Old Sheffield Attributed to H. Wilkinson ca1825 in the group Whadja Find Today
"I don't think it is H Wilkinson, they had a different mark and shield. Nor do I think the date is correct; it looks later (late 19th century). Finally it looks cast and electroplated, so not authentic Old Sheffield Plate."

Jeff Guy replied to BikerBonnie's discussion Can anyone tell me about this carving? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Really doesn't look like wood. Start by figuring out what it is made of - much easier for you (touch, scrape, poke, examine up close) than it is from pics."

Jeff Guy replied to Victoria Rutherford's discussion cast iron METAL asian chinese japanese vase ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Iron seems unlikely, but easy to test - if iron a magnet will stick to it. I would guess some sort of tin based metal like pewter, with artificial coating to make it look like aged bronze patina. Recent (late 20th century) reproduction."

Jeff Guy replied to Sara Michie's discussion Vintage Lafayette Clarinet in the group Whadja Find Today
"Start at the beginning. What is it made of - wood, hard rubber or plastic?"

Jeff Guy replied to Rochelle's discussion Vintage drinking glass in the group Whadja Find Today
"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…"
