Can any one help me learn more about these pieces and what they’re possibly worth?

    James, you need to list these separately, maybe 2 to a thread with well lite pictures front, back and possibly bottom. You can also click on full image when you list them.

    I'm skeptical that these glass panel things ever existed a hundred years ago but I could be wrong, just seems like a dumb thing to make for domestic use, the tea caddies and wine ewers too.

    I posted this on an Asian Art forum and someone was able to translate the markings on the tea pot for me. I can't find any info on this "famous tin maker" online though.

    永利 点銅 - Yŏnglì Diăntóng

    Was made by the famous tin maker Yán Yŏgli 顔永利 in Guandong at the end of the Qing Dynasty or at the beginning of the Republic.

    Diăntóng 点銅 means that the tin content is more than 70%.

    On the side of the tea pot the marking 福 means Happiness

    Anyone familiar with the teapot or censer enough to tell if they are reproductions? I had one antique Expert tell me they are reproductions but they look really old. Inside of the censer has a lot of green (old copper?). Both of the pieces smell almost sweet which I think could be aging bronze but really don’t know much about metals.
