Liz Bryman replied to Naomi Buckingham's discussion Solid Sterling Silver Serving Spoon With NO Markings in the group Silver Antique And Collectible
"Hi, Naomi, Very attractive baroque design! Regrettably so many patterns similar to this charming style were made by almost every silverware maker in the civilized world, from about mid-19th century and are still made. So it's a big task to…"

"Thank you, David Liche, for this information! When I first got this lamp I remember reading up on it and did see that it was probably made in China. Because of its attached base in black wood no makers' stamps can be seen, nor is there a…"

My Pet Peeves in Auction Listings

Surfing online auctions for finds can be fun. I do it all the time, seeking things I want, both for resale and for personal use.

Online auctions are to me the virtual Big Flea Market and as in a real flea market one must wade through tons of miscellany to spot the finds.

It's faster and more convenient to do it online of course and yet, there are some things about auction listings that do annoy me. 

Perhaps you too?

I shop mostly for silver…

The Olden Days Had Their Share of Snobbery..


The Silver Standard was a periodical issued by 1847 Rogers silverware manufacturers to their retailers for many years. It came out in small book volumes each year, mainly showing what the company was doing in advertisements to support  their retailers, with many fine images of their wares. It is believed that the last issues of the…

Those Funny Antique Advertisements!

There were in the good/bad old days many products we wouldn't dream of using today, at least not for the reasons advertised.

But, oh, were they ever ADVERTISED  back then!

Some of these products are still around. The media would likely be severely criticized if the products were presented as in the old ads though.

Have a little chuckle on how the public was invited to diet with tape worms, blow smoke in the face of a date, eat lard, and…

Fish Eating Flatware, Whassadat?


On my silver flatware website I feature all kinds of silver utensils. Most styles or types are familiar to us but there are some not often used in the U.S.

Like special forks and knives for fish dishes. A lovely shell pattern silver-plated fish dining set by John Biggin of Sheffield, England, is offered on my site. Although it is vintage new-old stock, in uncirculated (never…

NOT SOLD at Online Auctions: Why Not?

Hello again, IAO'lers,

It's Spring time again and the cleaning urge strikes us. Time to clean the house, the yard, the office, and, yes--the website.

Are our featured prices in keeping with today's market? What used to sell for much more is suddenly selling for much less. How do we know if we should lower prices and by how much?

A little market research won't hurt. There's no better place to do it than on the Net where prices are posted for the world to… Continue

Well, it is a pleasure to make your aquaintance. I have a hard enough time with just the English language! My husband travels all over the state of Florida and he tells me that Melrose is a pretty area.

I hope you like IAO as much as I've enjoyed it. It is so nice to talk with good people with the same interest. Blessings be yours. Oralei
