Jeff Guy replied to Sherri's discussion Kind of creepy ceramic doll in the group Whadja Find Today
"Signature looks like "A. Santini". They make/made a lot of figurines in different materials. This looks like number 557 of a limited edition of 4000. Look online and you may find the same figure for sale or sold. If not look for a similar…"

Jeff Guy replied to Wendy Tran's discussion Found this carved wooden bowl yesturday, does anyone know anything about these? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Looks like African carving done for tourist trade. Probably late 20th century."

Jeff Guy replied to hannah beard's discussion Windsor chair in the group Whadja Find Today
"If you want to learn furniture, you need to look at a lot of authentic antiques, and you need to get reference books. Look for local museums or historical societies and high priced antique stores. Ask questions. Buy or take books from the library.…"

Jeff Guy replied to hannah beard's discussion Windsor chair in the group Whadja Find Today
"This is a factory made English-style Windsor made in the 20th century. Molly found a very close match (I think yours might have stretchers too though can't be seen because of where you took your pictures from?) If you are in the UK and want to…"

Jeff Guy replied to Toni Cargill's discussion cased glass vases in the group Whadja Find Today
"I don't think what you are looking at is a mark at all. I would say these are both unmarked."

Jeff Guy replied to Buddy Morgan's discussion Rose O"Neill Kewpie Drawing in the group Whadja Find Today
"When I find something on paper that I think may have value, I will usually take it out of its frame. Either the paper quality of this piece is poor, or there has been acid damage to this from the backing. The only way to get rid of an acid backing…"

Jeff Guy replied to Marc Taylor's discussion Oak Dental Cabinet and Oak Ice Box in the group Whadja Find Today
"Dental cab is oak, icebox is a wood I'm not sure of but maybe walnut. Both are from early 20th century, 1920's, 30's or so. Neither has huge collector interest. I don't know values in Chicago, but you can look for similar in…"

Jeff Guy replied to Buddy Morgan's discussion Rose O"Neill Kewpie Drawing in the group Whadja Find Today
"I'm taking as a given the OP's statement that he looked at it with a scope and that this is not a print. With a scope it should certainly be obvious if it was taken from a newspaper since newspaper print quality is so low. I wrote…"

Jeff Guy replied to Buddy Morgan's discussion Rose O"Neill Kewpie Drawing in the group Whadja Find Today
"If it is not a print, then it is likely to be an original. She was prolific, and perfectly reasonable that she would do a print for a child stuck in a hospital with a broken leg while on a tour of the children's ward. Although not fine art and…"

Jeff Guy replied to Asher Hicks's discussion Box by Aldo Zama - Catacombe S. Sebastiano Roma in the group Whadja Find Today
"We have an expert in Italian pottery who sometimes contributes here so hopefully he will see it (Walter Del Pellegrino). I'll give you my opinion, though I am no expert. The fact that this is labelled as a souvenir from the catacombs in Rome…"

Jeff Guy replied to kay jos's discussion Chalice or Goblet question in the group Whadja Find Today
"I'll once again strongly suggest that this is either pewter (as I suggested) or silver-plate with all the plating worn off (as LB suggested). Both are possible and we both believe the numbers to be a manufacturing model number and not a silver…"

Jeff Guy replied to kay jos's discussion Chalice or Goblet question in the group Whadja Find Today
"This isn't a Russian or Portugese silver mark, just production/model numbers. I think it is highly likely to be pewter and highly unlikely to be silver but it is easy enough to take it to a Jeweler who buys scrap silver and ask him if it is…"

Jeff Guy replied to kay jos's discussion Interested in the age of print in the group Whadja Find Today
"The original of this print is quite old (early 1800's), but I think Tom is correct that this is a much more recent reprint. I have never seen an antique print with a colored border like the one in yours."

Jeff Guy replied to Michael Cooke's discussion Antique chinese carving in the group Whadja Find Today
"I agree with Molly that an oval mirror frame seems a likely use and the wood strips in the oval and small nail holes for a backing would support that. The only carving from the rear is for the figures that would be somewhat reflected in the mirror,…"
