"Why is your vase tucked into your couch? Vases belong on flat surfaces. Can't see the full shape.
Taking a Cutting board, put it on your couch, spread a white towel over it and take new pictures. Would like to see the bottom, signature…"
Well, the first thing that comes to mind when I look at this is that it is two candlesticks attached together via the metal. The two glass pieces look like Fostoria's "Virginia" in Topaz yellow. But I do not have…"
"Your set appears to be Italian art glass, the top bowls are "cased" and the rest looks to be hand blown. You should see pontil marks on the bases of each - showing you that they are hand blown, as opposed to "pressed" or…"
"We can solve many of the items, but a few (like yours) defy our efforts. I have boxes of similar stuff that I can't find out about and I've searched long and hard on my own stuff.
Merry Christmas to you too!"
"Google has a website for translations from French to English; in English it translates to:
"Hand Painted Limoges France MJ
Your Humpty Dumpty is a boy (actually was a king), not a girl. Yes, he has long eye lashes. He is brand new and retails…"
"I think Caroline is right; it looks Southwestern style to me. No "Made in..." "22kt" is in English, so I'd guess US made. Kind of attractive. If Native American (Navajo) value could go to $100-150, BUT if not, probably…"
Your vase is indeed most unusual! To me, it appears as though someone took a Shawnee "confetti" vase, a czech arts & crafts vase, and a southwestern vase and put them all in a blender... and your vase is what was poured…"
"22 kt is a standard for gold. I don't see any gold unless those small bumby things in the white area is gold, but pic is too fuzzy to tell. Maybe something was painted over? 22 kt is almost pure gold, 91.67%."
All though I collect a variety of many items I really like art glass vases, bowls, pottery, vintage jewelry, vanity items, and anything that may fall into the Olden days.I shop thrift stores, antique malls, etc. I am fairly new at collecting and have a large variety of items that I dont know the makers, values, etc. I hope to post many of my items soon in hopes that this great group can help me identify and perhaps estimate values. I am excited I found this site and feel this will be very helpfull site for me.

I currently have two booths in a small east Texas town about 80 miles from Dallas. (My mom lives there) i sell 50 to 60 dollars a month but feel i could do much better if I knew more about my pieces. The shop is mixed with a variety of things that I have purchased and all seem to sell eventually. Everyone tells me I have a great eye for the "finer" pieces and so far have not, to my knowledge purchased anything that I could not resale for a profit. My short term goal at this time is to get a web site up and running to sell my things. Hoping to find a mentor to assist me with this. look forward to working with everyone and becoming a more knowledgeble collector in the long run.
