"This type of lamp is usually called a "Banquet Lamp". They are tall, and usually in traditional designs, like yours.
This is just a guess, but I think late 1940's to early 1960's would be the era for yours. Value depends on lots…"
" Sure, I'm happy to help you, if I can. In order to value your items, It's probably best to first take an inventory of exactly what you have. How many pieces, what shapes are included, condition is a BIG factor in selling. If some are…"
"Well, do you think you could place one in good, natural light, or at least a clearer white light ( kitchen or something maybe?) take some clear, close- up pics of the top, edges, stand and maybe base or underside, if you can manage it.…"
"Czech crystal, ca. 1970 - early 1990's. The stars and cuts are not our AB (American Brilliant period).
The Czech glass makers like to copy our old designs, and this is one of them. It's solid crystal, very pretty but does not have the…"
"These are awesome Janet! Home made or manufactered u think?
I'd call them Mission/Arts and Crafts era if they are old? (1880-1910's) or in the style of those titles. I think they are cool, and would probably sell for a good price!"
"looks like yellow ware, but im seeing a white clay rim on the base. Is that what u see to? If so, not yellow ware. Vintage art pottery batter bowl, i think.
I'd guess 1920's-30's. looks like US made."
"I would love to see all the pieces that came with the set. And, if yours is a tilting teapot ( those can be worth quite a bit of $$) does match, and has a makers mark, it might be easier to decide who made the tray as well!
Antique and Vintage tea…"
"Very Pretty Tray! Most all trays like this are made of Silver plate, because silver is too soft to be sturdy enough to hold a full tea and or coffee set - which is what yours is missing.
Many times the rest of the pieces get broken, lost or replaced…"
"Most all Royal Doulton has value. There are collectors for most of their works. This appears to be a Mid Century era (1950 - 60's) Cocktail pitcher. Those are also popular with the young people ( 20 and 30 somethings). They generally go more…"
"That would be your "Series" or model number. You should be able to find your model name, and approx. date when it was made online.

Thanks for replying! No, my Vicki isn't a scientist. She used to work as an economist at Texas Instruments, I think, then became a romance novelist (writing as Victoria Chancellor, her maiden name). She is from Kentucky and Chuck might be from there as well, not sure, but they lived in Texas for probably 30 years.
Thanks for the friend request. Why do you think that my vase is French St. Cloud? I have looked at pieces from that period, and it doesn't seem to look anything that was produced from that time period. My best guess is that it is from Owens pottery, circa 1900, when this glaze and painted floral scenes were popular. Many pottery companies were copying Rookwood during this time period, but I can't figure out who this is pottery maker is. I have seen two different pieces with similar markings and the "SCloud" stamp, but I have not been able to identify the maker. Very frustrating. I would be interested if you know anything more about this piece.
Hi Vicki, thanks for your response. I am using a regular pc but when I click on the icon, nothing happens. Next to it there is a space and a button that says browse, I click on it and find the photo I want and then click upload but all I get is that error message. Nothing seems to work.
Vicki his name is Ron McCracken and his grandparents and parents are pretty well known in Harrison. He grew up on Town Hall drive and his parents still live there. We just got back from staying at our lake home in Petoskey and visiting his family.

Depression Era and Depression Glass are interchangeable terms. True DG was made before WWII but we include some newer patterns in our books because other authors did and our readers expect to see these patterns when they open our books, too. Most economists agree that the actual Great Depression lastest through the 1930s and the glass companies continued their production of these patterns up until WWII when the natural resources to produce the glass and the equipment as well was directed to war needs. Jim and I have started using the term "Depression Era Glassware" as young collectors are uncertain what "Depression Glass" means. I hope this adds some clarity. B
