    Hello,
    They are magnets, right? The package says so. My guess is they are from about the 1960-70s and have very little value.

    Hello,
    I can't really see a seam in the photos. The clay itself doesn't look right to me. It looks much newer than even an early 20th. century piece. The other point I might comment on is the glaze....

    Hello,
    Nice piece.
    Just a comment on terminology.
    Bisque refers to formed pieces that have been fired to about 900C and will be fired again to their final temperature. Your piece, since it has...

    Hello,
    I think you should try the price you got your appraisal for. Similarly sized Bowenite jades are going for between 150-500$ now. A big variable will be the wood in the base. If it is rosewood,...

    The material looks like a mix of resin and bone. It could also be some kind of stone.

    Request for identification

    Hello,
    I bought this set of glass rods yesterday at an auction in Japan. My 'specialty' is Japanese antiques and I am pretty sure these aren't Japanese.
    The rods range in length from 17.7cm. -...

    Great photos.
    The bottom looks like it could be 心 in cursive but the top part is difficult to figure out. If you put that character into a search engine and then look at images it will show some...

    The main 2 marks on the bottom read 'kozan'. It is possible there are other ways to read them but that is the most common reading. There is one more mark on the edge that is an incomplete #5 in...

    It would be very difficult to tell what the material is from photos. If you post some clear photos of the bottom and any grain in the material it would help.
    Price wise, there is a chip on the rim...

    Nice painting. I can't tell you much other than it doesn't look Japanese to me. The signature looks either Chinese or Korean. I can't really say which. IF it was Japanese the characters look older....

    It looks like a decorative hanging tile to me. Roof tiles won't generally be that flat on the back and will have holes to attach it to the roof with copper wire. Your tile looks like it is made to be...

    It looks like a theodolite to me. The maker should be written somewhere on it.
    I hope that helps a little.

    If it is a 'true' glaze it should be very tough, like glass. I have used a sharp, metal blade to scrape surface debris, including paint, off glazed pieces. I don't know how extensive the paint is on...

    As the mark is now posted it is oriented correctly. If the mark was turned over it would be upside down. The 'da' of 'Koshida' is the foursquare looking mark, at the bottom in the photo as posted,...

    If it is signed "Hand Painted Nippon" I would put the date at about 1910-1920, more or less. Value, without a closer look, at 150-300$. You probably won't find an exact match in anything but the...

    It looks like some kind of stamp missing the stamp to me. The other thing that comes to mind is material for a seal. The characters would be carved in the bottom. The shape is not traditional for...

    There are four lines of text. The second from the right or third from the left, at the top, has these characters, 屈子 The reading is Kusshi. If you put Kusshi into a search engine your results are...

    Is there anything on the bottom? It might be, although I have never seen one shaped like a Buddha, a seal stone.
    The writing looks like a poem, not really relevant to the use. Kind of like a...

    I think it matches. Since they are done with a brush there is variation. The signature you have seems to have about 10-12 strokes, the Koshida mark seems to have about 12-13 strokes. I put my vote in...

    It looks middle or later 20th. century to me. If I had to guess I would say Japanese because of the relaxed nature of the whole piece.
