But some Vintage and Antique glassware is hard to identify. EAPG and Hex Block style can get confusing. Even Waterford Glass watermarkings style of signature is very hard to find even with the trained eye. Just be very careful on looking through lots of glassware. You've gotta do a lot of sifting through clear glassware to get to the good stuff. Fenton is… Continue
As you can see we just obtained a very exquisite example of Imperial Glassware. The Cut glass style is labeled IG in the bottom of the bowl which is chip free. Measures 8" in diameter and 3" tall. Our listing can be found here http://www.afamilyheirloom.com/id1.html
It's really amazing to me how popular the Jadeite restaurant plates are these days. Again, half of the buyers are overseas contacts. In the past we’ve gone through many of these plates, some with the curved 3 section style as well as some straight triangle restaurant plates. Even the plain plates can be seen hitting at least $25 a piece. Now, why aren't the other colors of Fire King Glassware getting the same amount of action? We've had the primary… Continue

We got in a load of Mints, Proofs, and Commemorative Coin Sets. What I'm wondering is whether or not PCGS Coin Grading for Coins tabbed by the US Mint Certified is necessary. What is more valuable in the grading process? US Mint certification seems more practical, but some of the certified coins are easy to pop out of their protective cases. With PCGS tabbing it’s easy to see an opened or tampered coin. Has anyone had any experience in this, and is… Continue

Their are many other types of Antiques out there from the Civil War era that are not necessarily Military in nature but was produced at the same time regardless. Pottery for one had a unique flavor during this time. Pictured here is a Lusterware pitcher from about the same time period. A combination of clay and copper glazed firing made these very unique style serving pieces. Our here has a green and yellow pattern running underneath the copper. It's… Continue

This just in our store. The Lamp base is labeled Miller and New Vestal. Definitely a Victorian Brass Style. Electrified in the 1930's. But the greatest thing about this Fine Arts Lamp or Piano Banquet Lamp, is that the original globe is still perfectly intact. The star and Frosted Acid Etchings are in beautiful condition. We've seen a bunch of Banquet lamps in our day but this is by far the best in its class.

The only real English Antiques that come through the store here just about once a month is China. We've done lots of Flow Blue, but there has got to be more to the English Antiques market than just china and small things. Being in the US its sometimes difficult only because we we're influenced by the English in so many facets of the Antique world, especially in New England, through the ages that its hard to see the difference between English and… Continue

For the past week I've been watching one of our auctions which are some Mickey and Minnie Mouse Watches in a lot. All of them not working but still falling under the collectab;e watches category. Now, hoe do you differenciate from the modern watches, The Vintage watches, and the truly rare Mickey or Minnie Watches that were first produced. It's the first time I've seen active watching and bidding on broken items of yesteryear. Half of these people are… Continue

You probably don't want to hear this and its probably the reason why your selling off your Tiffany Sterling but the key to Tiffany Sterling flatware or any Sterling flatware selling for the most price depends on the pictures you take and how good you are polishing every piece. Just remember when your polishing each piece, that the work your putting into it is going to help the sale extremely well. There are many dealers out there looking for Sterling… Continue

When posting a Lladro Figurine you have to remember three important things that the customer needs to know. First and foremost is the condition. They will have a lot of confidence in your product if a description lists the Lladro as having No Chips, Cracks, Crazing, or Repairs. Customers don't like to see dirt or scuffing in the pictures either. Second would be to take pictures in which the figurine takes up the entire screen. I've also seen a lot of… Continue
