A few questions in one post
Didnt' want to clog up the board with a bunch of posts, so I am consolidating several unrelated things into one posting.
1. I have several pieces of pottery and glassware, that I am unable to identify (who the maker is, the pattern etc) or I cant find anything similiar to it online. How else can you determine what the piece is and if there is a relative value to a piece? Like this one is marked Hosley Potteries, but I could not find any other vase like it.
2. If something that appears to be silver (plated or otherwise) is NOT stamped or marked in some way, does that pretty much rule out that it is silver? and (pic attached) where would something like this be marked? I sure dont see anything anywhere.
3.what can you tell me about this compote?
