    Hello, I found some art glasses and pottery pieces form a local estate auction. I wonder if you could help me to identify the origin, age and market value? Thanks. IMG_0622.jpg IMG_0623.jpg IMG_0624.jpg IMG_0625.jpg IMG_0626.jpg IMG_0627.jpg

    Well, I see a decorative Italian Majolica wall plaque which would likely have been one of a set representing the four seasons. You have autunno or fall, when the grape harvest takes place. Here's a similar set

    That snake is fabulous ! Is that a Royal Doulton lady lurking in the back ?

    Are these all things not yet purchased? (So for upcoming estate auction that hasn't happened yet?)

    Think we're being used to winnow.

    Ah. Got it. :happy: I'm actually okay with that, but I didn't want to make too many less than positive suggestions if these were items already purchased. I guess I was thinking that these things didn't look that great for resale. Sort of mid-low end 1980s/90s. The snake thing is kind of interesting but unless signed (and able to find the artist to check values) I would pass with the possible exception of the milifiori piece which looks like it might be a lamp shade possibly?? (I can't really tell from the photo, but appears to be missing something.) More research would be needed on that. Not spotting any other item that would be particularly lucrative for resale, but just my opinion of what sells where I live.

    There are some Ursula figurines on the lower shelf you might check. Some sell for a bit it seems depending on maker etc

    Actually I think they might be Lenox and if so seem collectible.

    That's a mille fiori mushroom lamp shade. Prices are all over the place, looking at Google. Is the matching base around there anywhere?

    And now I see the blue mille fiori vase has a Venetian dragon handle. Looks like a student's attempt, which is still a whole lot more skilled than the average person could muster. Here is an updated version of the dragon by Bill Gudenrath at Corning. He's managed to work out how to create one without any assistants. Bill Gudenrath.jpg

    The eggplant COULD be Murano or Czech, or not. (No real way to tell)

    Thank you all for the comments.
    All the art glass pieces are in the coming auction of Sunday. I have not decided if I shall take the risk of going onsite.

    actually there is a carved mark on the bottom end if you look at it carefully.
