Glass / Re: Stromberg Vase ? with Engraved Antelope / Gazelle ?
« Last post by langhaugh on Today at 07:25:49 PM »
I can see the Stromberg influence, but the the shape of the vase and the quality the engraving doesn't say Stromberg to me.  I've attached a photo of a Stromberg antelope.

Hi Bob

Your 'definitions' were not from the totally 'expletive deleted' useless pages of Hobbizine (provided buy some less than halfwit who thinks that plagiarising 70 year old books and catalogues is 'state of the art' ID info - and that images are not necessary), buy any chance?

Glass / Re: Covered honey modelled on a thatched straw hive

Boyd Glass (USA) owns a mold which has the same number of horizontal rows (10) on the base, but the bees have different placement, and the finial on the lid is different, as is the location of the bees on the outside of the base.  It is contemporary and has been made in numerous colors.  I don't know who made your version, nor do I know where Boyd got their mold.  In the little book they released, it only mentions that they acquired a bunch of molds from Imperial at one time.  I also cross-checked my Degenhart book (the Boyd factory is the same as the Degenhart factory, just new owners) and it was not in that book, so the mold was new to Boyd and not inherited when the factory was purchased from Mrs. Degenhart.  While this does not tell you who made it, it also eliminates one of the 'possible contenders'.

Hi Andy

Sorry - I only captured 5 images from the advert, not the full spread. I do not have other information.

I suspect the 'hacked account' and using old images is the source of the problem. About 8 years ago I nearly fell for a 'Bacchus' scam - I won it, but was uneasy - especially when the guy (in the US) wanted Western Union money transfer to 'his sister' at some different address. I offered 50% up front, 50% on delivery - and he was desparate to agree - so I ditched the deal and reported it to the US authorities. I found out shortly afterwards he was using auction images for a weight that Nancy Alfano had put through an auction house a year before!

One of the giveaways I've always found is to look at feedback dates.  This ones last feedback is in June last year, so I wouldn't go near it.  The 'hackers' target accounts which aren't in use, just like this one......

If anyone can work out what else they've 'sold' recently that would be great, but I can't see the completed listings option?
