This is a very ornate old Victorian piece. It appears to be bronze or brass and then has gold gilding or leaf over the top. It has what looks like 6 rubies and either 2 blue opaline or turquoise cabochon jewels. It has a pen rest on the tray and an inkwell, but the lid is missing. Still it is a lovely old piece. I don't know the maker as I can find no marks on it. It does have a screw in the bottom that look like it was added to tighten up one of the pen rests...
This is such a beautiful piece of old Fenton glass. It is circa 1940 to 1950. It is medium blue opalescent hobnail glass, ruffled and footed pressed glass. It measures 5.5 inches tall and 5 inches across the top. It is in excellent condition, no chip, no cracks and no cloudiness or scratches. This would be great for the Fenton collector.

This stately regal angel ceramic figurine is so pretty. The hand painted detail and shading are really pretty. She has beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair. Her robe is a pearlescent cream color and her wings shimmery gold. The person who did this work was very masterful. They antiqued it with a wash after painting it to give it depth. She measures 9.25 inches tall and is in very good condition.
2 pretty little star of David nut, condiment, mint or dessert dishes or bowls. These have lovely zigzag edges and measure 4 inches in diameter and 1.25 inches tall. They are both in excellent condition. I'm not sure the age but they are probably from the 60s or 70s.
This is a really pretty porcelain vase or dresser jar with yellow rose sprays on both sides. The background is white with airbrushed aqua and gray gradient colors. It is unmarked so I don't know the maker. I also am not sure whether it is hand painted or transfers. It is an auction piece so I don't know the history. It measures 4.75 inches tall and 4.5 by 3 inches wide and is in very good condition, no chips and no cracks.
This is a very unusual art glass dish made with yellow flashing and what looks like hand painted platinum gilding. It has the yellow on the outside of the clear glass and the gilding on the inside of the bowl, so it gives it a rich quality look.

It has just a small amount of wear to the gilding on the rim, the yellow flashing is in excellent condition...

It is real similar to bowls made my Lancaster and Hocking Glass companies. It measures 2.75 inches tall and 9 inches handle to handle. It is in very good condition with no chips and no cracks, just a small amount of wear to the paint under the handles.
This is a really nice 3 footed satin or frosted hand painted bowl with pink flowers and green leaves. The bottom has a pretty ribbed scallop design the mirrors the the top edge. I have found it listed under two makers names " Lancaster Glass company's "Kay" 1932 design and Hocking Glass company 1924 design, but I'm not sure which is right. It is a pretty dish that could be used for fruit or potpourri. It measures 3.75 inches tall and 7.75 inches rim to rim...
This is a very nice heavy old bean pot or crock with a tan or cream bottom and dark brown top, fully glazed and in very good condition, no chips and no cracks, and has the original lid. It is marked USA but nothing more. It does looks just like some said to be made by RRP in Roseville, Ohio but I have no idea for sure as it is an auction item. It measures 6.25 inches tall and 6.5 inches in diameter.
