Greetings Everyone!

We all know the excitement of finding a mysterious, unknown piece and the anxiety that follows until we find out more about it. Sentimental value aside we must also know - is it a treasure? Should you keep it or throw it away?

Well post your photos here by clicking "New Topic" and me and other fellow members will do our best to help identify those pieces for you.
Here are a couple of guidelines to make this easier for everyone:

1. Make sure you post at least 2 photos of the item. The better the quality the better the chance to identify it.
2. Don't forget to look for any marks on the object and make photos of them too.
3. Any provenance, such as where did the item came from could be useful.
4. By posting any photos you agree to let me use them in future articles on the blog should I determine they could be useful, this helps Antique-Marks.com develop further and keep the web site online.

Good luck!

Just purchased a coffee table with four draws in the bottom and found two of these marks on the side and in the draw any clues as to who these are?

Hi There,

I have recently emptied my Mother in laws home in London and have found a facinating collection of very old pretty plates. 12 in total but all the files wont upload onto here.
Is there anywhere I can send the images as Id like to work out if they are valuable or not.

Many thanks,
Callum

I have this Asian vase I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about it. I am not even sure if I am using this forum correctly. If someone could help with either the vase or tell me how this works that would be great. Thank you for your time. I am only putting a few pics of the vase but there is more if needed. Thank you.

Hi
I was cleaning out some items from my nannies house when I came across this. It was used for holding flowers. Is it anything worth keeping or should I throw it away? It is cracked and repaired on one side so I don't think I can give it in to a charity shop so would love to know to help decide it's fate!!!

Thanks Cora
