LB Laub replied to Jeremy Woodoff's discussion Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Jeremy, What you have is an obverse-painted shade, meaning the decoration is on top rather than inside (then it would be reverse-painted). You might want to explore "Pittsburgh" P.L.B.&G. Co. as a possible maker. I have a larger…"

LB Laub replied to Jenn's discussion Is this a r recent eproduction? Or actually vintage in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Jenn, It looks like you have a cigar box purse; made from a recycled cigar box. It isn't particularly old (I'd guess made in the last 25 years up to today), but there is a chance the flapper woman may have been cut from an original…"

LB Laub replied to Janice's discussion need help to research this signed art work from 1888 in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Janice, You've definitely got an intaglio print; the question is, what kind? I will venture to say it is both an etching (due to the uniform thickness of the lines) and aquatint (based on the variation of dark and light in the background).…"

LB Laub replied to Mark Smith's discussion Hair receiver M.Z. Austria, Two back stamps in the group Whadja Find Today
"Run your finger gently over the backstamps. You'll probably notice that one stamp is beneath the glaze and one is atop of the glaze. The underglaze mark is the manufacturer's mark and the overglaze mark is the decorator's mark. In…"

LB Laub replied to Diane Simmons's discussion Old Glass Pitcher in the group GLASS HOUND HEAVEN: Antique and Collectible Glassware
"Hi Diane, Your pitcher is probably Bohemian, c.1900-10. It's got the very distinct Jugendstil look."

LB Laub replied to Molly Zone's discussion Interesting Raised Plate in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Molly, It certainly looks like hand-decorated Chinese export porcelain, but I couldn't say how old it is. The raised enameling is consistent with Chinese decoration, but the 1851 serial number on the bottom leads me to believe it is not as…"

LB Laub replied to Nicole Brumleve's discussion 18th Century Flow Blue Porcelain Piece Marked Sydenham S.A. & Company
"Hi Nicole, This is a soup tureen. I can't quite read the numbers and letters on the registration mark to be sure, but because it does have a registration mark and is a flow blue piece, it likely dates somewhere between 1842-67, which pertains…"

LB Laub replied to Mark's discussion Please help!!
"Ooh, very nice! I've seen similar chests and they ended up being 19th century Scottish. This one is interesting though, because it is inset with Jasperware cabochons. If they are made by Wedgwood, that points to England. With the exception of…"

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)."
