Jeff Guy replied to David Enders's discussion English Piece in the group Whadja Find Today
"Fully agree with LB and Walter. Staffordshire is an area in England that made pottery in the 19th century (and still), but this is not Staffordshire but rather Staffordshire-style since it was made in China. Another example of how sellers on ebay…"

Jeff Guy replied to sarah's discussion 1932 folk art cane in the group Whadja Find Today
"Your closeup is out of focus and you didn't include pics of the signature or date. Other important images would be the house and dress of the people. Won't get much without better pictures."

Jeff Guy replied to House of Charm Antiques Southinc's discussion Who knows Americana-candlestix in the group Whadja Find Today
"Push-up candlesticks continued to be made into the 20th century. The decoration and manufacture of these indicate late 1800's, not early 1800's. Almost certainly made in England not the US."

Jeff Guy replied to emily purpura's discussion Pendant from Mexican Silver Collection in the group Whadja Find Today
"Sorry, but this is NOT an ancient pre-Columbian piece. You should have it tested, but it doesn't look like its made of silver. It may be an Inca-style reproduction, but I would have to see some references or links before I would be sure of even…"

Jeff Guy replied to Mark D Swartz's discussion Large Wood Coffee Grinder Well Made & Sturdy in the group Whadja Find Today
"Best to use it yourself since you own it already. It is pretty clearly a reproduction of an antique, and shows the hazard of believing ebay listings since they often have incorrect information.Your date of 60's, 70's seems right to me."

Jeff Guy replied to Ryan Baker's discussion Hmm I'm stumped dunno how to describe this. Anybody know what this is?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"I saw her search and it looks similar. But that doesn't mean it actually IS an ANCIENT Ethiopian Processional Cross as Holly suggested - just that it LOOKS like one. It may well be from Africa (one of the areas I listed) - but without a lot…"

Jeff Guy replied to Jesse Kellman's discussion Chinese Porcelain Teapot? Mark ID Help Please. in the group Whadja Find Today
"It's a very recent reproduction of an old chinese teapot. Mark would have originally been on an early 1700's Qing dynasty piece - called an Emperor Yongzheng six-character mark. No way to tell who made it unless you find an identical one…"

Jeff Guy replied to Ryan Baker's discussion Hmm I'm stumped dunno how to describe this. Anybody know what this is?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"In some parts of the world hand-made is still very much being done (think central and south america, parts of asia and middle-east, africa, etc.), so that is not a reliable way to date an item, unless you know where it came from (e.g. if it was…"

Jeff Guy replied to Bill Dyer's discussion Chinese Satsuma reproduction Vase Bowl?. in the group Whadja Find Today
"Your info makes sense, but you should include a pic of the bottom so we can see the best part. If there were holes in the lid it could be for incense (censer), but I guess it isn't. I think this is decorative and not meant to hold food, so…"

Jeff Guy replied to Charlotte's discussion Hello needed to identify dining chairs in the group Whadja Find Today
"Not Hepplewhite, its an earlier (style) than that. Interpretation of a style called Ribbon Back Chippendale. Mid-century or newer sounds about right - I would have said more like 70's, 80's or even more recent."

Jeff Guy replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion homemade pencil/pen holder ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Betty, you've been buying cars long enough to know that every year car companies make their models slightly different, and so will the insignias be slightly different. My link was not meant to be "correct" but meant to be…"

Jeff Guy replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion homemade pencil/pen holder ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"I disagree, looks to me like insignia taken from a car and put onto a homemade box as suggested by OP. Font is the same as manufacturer, chromed insignia like this were widely used on cars, the dot is missing paint or possibly a nail and not part of…"

Jeff Guy replied to Thomas Saletta's discussion Cast Iron Womans Sign in the group Whadja Find Today
"Your first picture is in focus but doesn't show the whole item. Your other pics are way out of focus so not useful. Put a pic of the full item. Also looks like some of it is missing broken off underneath WOMAN - is that right? And give the size."

Jeff Guy replied to brenda's discussion Old liquor flask in leather in the group Whadja Find Today
"Michael found the item. In this case, very likely to have been made in Mexico in the 20th century for tourist market - they do a lot of hand-tooled leather work using this motif. Wouldn't be more valuable than the one in Michael's picture…"

"Brass niello decorated with Egyptian motif. Could have been made in Japan. Here's similar decoration: Japanese Cigarette Case"
