Need help to identify origin.

"These are really lovely! Any marks on the bottom, and what are the measurements?"
LB Laub replied to Betsy T Hamas's discussion Looking for information about this antique clock in the group Clocks Antique - Collectible
"What a fun clock! I think it would date to the 1920s-1930s, when classical revival made a comeback and showed up in mass-produced furniture. How tall is the clock? It looks a bit short, so "grandmother clock" might be a more appropriate…"
LB Laub replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Date this helmet in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Lloyd, My husband says that because the helmet has a rear seam, it dates to Korea or later. The lining, however, appears to be WWII, so it is likely these two pieces were married together in recent times."

LB Laub replied to TGlo's discussion What type of bowl is this and maker mark? in the group Whadja Find Today
"The mark says "Silesia," which was a city-state of Austria-Hungary prior to WWII. The maker of your bowl was Kuno Steinmann and it dates between 1932-38. I would say your bowl was used for serving, possibly of berries."

LB Laub replied to TGlo's discussion Flow Blue 12 inch Decorative Wall Plates in the group Whadja Find Today
"I have to agree with House of Charm that they are technically not flow blue. I would even venture to say that they are probably not marked because they are fairly new (perhaps 1960s-present)."

LB Laub replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Can anyone identify the maker of this chair ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It looks like an S. Bent & Brothers chair. They were in business from 1867-2000 in Gardner Massachusetts, which some online sources say was "the chair capitol of the world." Most of their furniture was colonial revival in style, and…"

LB Laub replied to Christopher TruLove's discussion Mr. Jones in the group Whadja Find Today
"Fred is right on the money. Your Mr. Jones is a clock topper. They are made of spelter and patinated with a shiny metallic finish."

LB Laub replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Please Date this Johnson Company chair in the group Whadja Find Today
"I would think it dates somewhere between 1915-40. These quarter-sawn oak swivel chairs were popular for quite a while. They are often called "banker's chairs." The Johnson Chair Co. of Chicago was founded by Andrew P. Johnson, a…"

Silver jade ring

"Hi there, I have a very similar ring to this that was passed down in my family. The stone on yours looks to be agate or jade. Mine has an opal. I can send you a photo of it for comparison, if you'd like. I'd say the ring dates between…"

LB Laub replied to Jesse K's discussion Noritake Nippon?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Two books that are specifically about porcelain decoration, with lots of studio references: Dorothy Kamm, "American Painted Porcelain: Collector's Identification & Value Guide," 1997. Alan B. Reed, "Collector's…"

LB Laub replied to Jesse K's discussion Noritake Nippon?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"I've got a few reference books about this topic at home. I'll get you the information tonight once I find them in my bookcase!"

LB Laub replied to Jesse K's discussion Noritake Nippon?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Jeff, You are right that many people (largely women) also bought and decorated china at home. I was basing my studio reference off of the Noritake Collectors Guild. They seem to imply that pieces with this mark might have been sent to studios.…"

LB Laub replied to Jesse K's discussion Noritake Nippon?? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Jesse, Yes, it is Noritake. The mark on your piece dates it to c.1911. Pieces with this particular mark were exported to the United States and sent to decorating studios. Because of the Japanese influence in the design, I could definitely believe…"
