Q.

I have recently aquired a watson ink co ltd inkwell and would like some more information on it. The base is embossed with "this bottle always remains the property of watsons ink co ltd"

[strangegirl3021   08/09/2014]
A. Ian also adds: Further to my reply regarding Watson's Ink, I would be interested to buy the inkwell if StrageGirl3021 wishes to sell.
[geoffisaac20   16/09/2014]
A. Regarding StrageGirl3021's enquiry about Watson's Ink. Watson (I just forget his first name at the moment) came from Parkes NSW and was a chemist and photographer. In the 1920's he developed his ink. This ink was much bluer than any other at the time and when the White Train came through Parkes in 1927 the value of his ink was recognised. Watson subsequently went to Sydney and set up his factory in Concord. His son Gordon became an internationally acclaimed pianist. More details of this can be found in my book "Parkes A Photographic History". I am a collector of various things and have a number of Watson bottles -inks, paste, and mucilage.

 Hi Guys,

This is my very first time on this site and was hoping I could get some help.

I would like to know if anyone can tell me the value of a Energol oil dispenser . It holds 2 x 10 gallon oil drums  with hand pumps. The cabinet is a roll top and I know it is at least 50yrs old as it belonged to my local store that I later became the owner.

My contact email is : colin.legless@gmail.com

Q.

 Hi all.  I live in rural South Aus.  I have a small collection of around 40 pieces of Australian pottery I want to sell and am wondering the best way to go about it. I have Bosely, Guy Boyd, Arthur Boyd, Koster, Diana, Casey, Bennetts, Rawson, Wembley, Fowler, McHugh, Campbell and some unidentified pieces. Some of the pieces are of some value but the bilk would be more average I'm guessing.  Hope someone can help.  Thanks Justin.

Q.

 I'm not sure if any of you will even have any idea that this glass factory in the Pilbra region of  WA. It closed down long ago because of a big cyclone that wiped out the wharf and like many of WA pioneer towns it is now abonaded and very hard to get to,  let alone find intact bottles there that were handmade at that spot. They made bottles there because the area had the correct sand needed.

So can any of you help with the value of these bottles? Does anyone know about this glass factory that is long gone now?

Hi there, we have a badge collection on a piece of board (shaped like Australia about 1.5m x 1.5m). It is full of badges old and new, started by my husbands father when he was 13 (some 50yrs ago).

Hi All,

I have  1 Opened (to get it through customs on my return)

Fosters Lager Beer Can ( Carlton & United Breweries) specially produced for the Final Sailing of  P & O Oriana, Last of the Orient Line on which I was a passenger in 1986

It reads P & O's Great Lady of the Sea Oriana, Last of the Orient Line   P & O  Farewell Oriana it has a picture of the ship on the can and it depicts the gross tonnage, length, breadth number of cabins etc etc on the front of the can.  Can email a picture if anyone enquires.

I have never seen one offered for sale anywhere including Ebay International sites.  Would anyone have any idea of the value so I can put it up for sale.  Alternatively where could I log onto to seek information re it's value to a collector.

Many thanks

Evie

Q.

 Hi I have a cilent who is wanting to sell her original r160 rocking chair which is in near perfect original condition. The upholstery is mid speckled green wool and is in great condition. The only issue is that it's missing both wooden wedges that support the cross beams under the chair.  It is not stamped but her father worked in the industry and she can remember the chair being bought as a child. I was hoping to give her a current price estimated and provide the best way to sell it quickly but getting a fair price. Thanks in advance.

[theredtree   18/04/2013]
A. Hi A couple of r160's just sold at Shapiro auction house for just over $4k each - they were not in very good condition so a good one has to be worth $5k. For some reason the rocking chairs are not as sought after as the regular ones - which seems strange to me as they are a lot rarer. One in good condition with a matching footstool sold for $6k at Leonard Joel in Melbourne last year. Unstamped as yours is (and given prices have come off a bit) I would still think $3k - $4k has to be a fair price and probably nearer the $4k.

Hi, I have come into possession of 4 x Teenage mutant ninja turtle silver coins.  Back of coins have picture of the TMNT's with the word 'Cowabunga' in a 'talk balloon' above them.  The only mark I can see is 'Mirage' on the back also.  The front features pics each of Rocksteady, Blimp, Krang and Splinter.  I know nothing about these and can't find any on other sites.  Any help appreciated about their history and value would be appreciated.

Q.
I have a Remued gumleaf jug (119M). Unfortunately it has a repaired crack in the spout. The crack is not obvious at a normal glance and most people would not immediately notice it. Does this damage make the jug worthless? It is a really pretty colour of oranges and green.

Does anyone know about Raynham Pottery marks and labels - eg what mark or label was used when? thanks

[maxson   24/04/2012]
A. Raynham pottery has a distinct look, most of them came from the retro era when colour and shapes were the rage. Most of them are marked with a sticker but as they wear off you need to look at the bottom to see if there are any marks. If there are no marks, mostly by the shape and texture and colour Raynham likes the rough type of outer glaze with a colour smooth glaze interior. A lot of Raynham is in a white. Otherwise google the name and see what you come up with. Cheers Berenice

Q.

I have a large collection of old bottles that my father rescued years ago.  My father has since passed away and the bottles are just sitting there.  We had intended years ago to sell them but because he'd been very unwell on and off it just never got done.  The bottles have been outside in the weather.  There are alot of different types, there was a torpedo bottle but I think that's gone walk about, and lots of soda bottles etc., some are in better condition than others.

If there are any collectors in Melbourne interested at some time in having a look with view to purchase please leave details.

[Miestar   22/09/2011]
A. If you are interested in selling a collection you can speak to my father John at 0433 247 438 or my grandfather Ross 5780 1234. My father runs auctions in melbourne in antique collectibles and garage memoribilia and my grandfather has been collecting bottles for 40 years. You can go to http://www.roycroftauctions.com/ for more information if you'd like and have a look at our previous auctions.

Hi, I was hoping you could help me. I am an archaeology student at Sydney University. For class we analysed a collection excavated from a well on a private property in Balmain, Sydney. I am very curious about tracking the origion of one of the partial bottle fragments to help put a date on the collection. It is an oval clear fluted bottle with 'This bottle belongs the Rosella pre & manf coy ltd regs 2970' on the side. The bottom has what looks like a square with outward tapering legs. The inside of the square appears to have a d inside it. There is an m then an s below this and T 145 below. Thank you for your time, Posted by Geoff for Karin

Q.

Hi folks I’m hoping you can help me. My father passed away late last year and has left us his huge collection of hand tools, collected over his lifetime. Many of the tools are vintage and original, some have been reconditioned. Just as an example there are over 100 claw hammers, literally 100’s of wood chisels, saws, pliers, etc etc - carpentry tools, plumbing tools, metalworking tools – you name it. Can you suggest someone who would be interested in looking at the collection with a view to buying it as single lot, or put me in touch with some collectors. The collection is located near Gosford on the Central Coast, NSW. Thanks in anticipation, Kind regards Steve Cook = sdcook@optusnet.com.au

Was wondering if any members new of an online pricing catalog for a beginner coca cola collector, i have found the books are out of touch with reality.

Lincoln Campbell

humptywassopushed@gmail.com any responce would be greatly appreciated.

[crikey666   07/07/2011]
A. As funny as it sounds, eBay is a virtual pricing catalog that changes with the times. Any collector will tell you that something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. People who write price guides can tell you if an item is rare, but really prices can fluctuate in both directions. There are so many determining factors in the reason for why something is valuable, ie: 1. How many items produced, thus how rare it is 2. The condition of the item (very important) 3. How old the item is 4. If the item is an original, or fake/fantasy 5. If the item has cross collecting involved, where it may be sought after by various different collecting categories, eg. movie/music/sports etc. 6. If the condition of the item will deteriorate due to the onset of rust, mould etc or simply if its trendy to have the item. You will find that the books show premium items, so the prices are probably quite realistic to high end collectors, but the best advice regarding working out prices is to find a few specialized items that you like, such as bottles, cans, vending machines, cups etc and really work on learning why things are valuable in these categories. I have been collecting for 24 years, have nearly 9,000 items in my collection, and really dont like a few thousand of those items. I collected them because they had Coca Cola on them, but now I have specialized and only spend time on items I must have, not just any Coca Cola item. It all takes time!

[zowie phillips   05/07/2011]
A. My Collections are designed for members to display their collections. If you want to find out information about items it is best to add a question to the discussion box (ie here!) so people can see it easily. If you want to sell (or buy) items it is best to list them in the MarketPlace section. Let me know if you need more info, Geoff

Q.

 Hi, I would appreciate any help in identifying and valuing a dessert service containing 12 x 24cm diameter handpainted plates with artists initials (LB, sometimes looks like CB) on the front and title on the back on Wedgwood blanks, plus an accompanying 2 x dessert platters 23cm diameter x 14.5cm high (deep plate on a raised pedestal) and 2 x shorter dessert platters 22.5cm diameter x 7cm high).  Each painting is a postcard sized landscape, mostly from around Sydney, 2 from Tasmania and accentuated by a floral (Australian) botanical specimen around ?half of the outer edge.  C1885-87.  I'll upload photographs as well.

Does anyone have any clues as to who the artist might be? Or what this dessert service may be worth?

Many thanks!

In the shed we found Dad's softdrink brewing machines. He bought them from a pub in Glen Innis 50 odd years ago and they were old then. He made squash and lemonade in our hotel. There are 4 seperate very large pieces all made by Mauri Bros & Thomson (Sydney) around 1920 we reckon. All bits are copper/brass and hand forged steel. Pipes and hoses have been cut. Machinery is well oiled and moves freely. Anyway....is it worth anything to any of your members or can you suggest what we should do with it please. I believe the things are far too valuable to sell as scrap metal. Thanks for your time. Warm regards. Rob

Q.

I have some old wall vases and wondered if you could advise the best way to display them that does not take up space. It may sound odd but I don;t wan to drill holes in our walls!
Thanks Lyn

[cwtr33   26/11/2010]
A. Hi Lyn, I collect wall vases and they look best on walls. You just buy picture hooks and hammer them in...no drilling required. If you want to move them a dab of filler in the hole and a bit of paint and your wall is new again. Be brave and once you start you will not want to stop.

We recently inherited an old National Cash Register Model 215 (1912) from my wife's father.  It is bronze Fleur de lis pattern, with marble drawer top, and has a maximum sale key of only 4/-.   

In excellent condition, and wondering about resale value.

[bobnmas   23/11/2010]
A. Ive recently purchased a cash register in bad condition for $400 and I'm restoring it. Its hard to find any one in Australia that knows about them but I know ones in good condition go for $2000 in the US. Hope it helps.
[candace   31/08/2011]
A. Do you want to sell the cash register? Milton
[Vintagepos   27/04/2011]
A. Please put the serial number as that will give a more acurate age, any photo I think it is a narrow one and a friend of mine recently bought one for around $500 could be worth more. Email a photo to miltongriffiths@bigpond.com if possible

The Registration Number of an object is a unique identifying number applied by the museum at the point of acquisition. Current numbering format comprises the year of acquisition, followed by a sequential number. For example, '2007/45' is the Registration Number that represents the 45th acquisition in the year 2007.

A. Hi Porthos, I worked at Pates Pottery in the fifties if I saw a photo of your vessel I might be able to tell you a bit about it. Regards Marie
[Marie   09/07/2010]
A. Best place to find a value is either ebay or Oztion, both have a good range of pottery and you type in Pates to the search function and see if there is anything similiar to yours. If not this week there will probably be something similiar next, I have seen just about every kind of pottery go through these 2 sites. Good Luck.

Q. can anyone tell me about aluminium postacards??? how long were they produced and what is their value to today's collector cheers shane
[ONCE IN A BLUE MOON   14/01/2010]
A. Hi Shane I am no expert on this, but I think they were popular during a limited period in the first decade of the twentieth century. I remember reading that they eventually got banned by various postal services because the postal workers complained that they were getting cut by the sharp edges. At that point you start getting a lot of fake aluminium cards. I did at one point start looking at the cultural kudos of aluminium, and found that it was basically seen as a really sexy material during the period (not that the Edwardians would have described it in those terms!) so I think this is why postcard manufacturers were using it. Later, once every possible thing (and particularly cans) had been made of aluminium, people seem to have stopped seeing it as a futuristic material altogether and it just became part of the landscape. With regard to value, I see the odd one coming on the market in NZ, and they don't seem to make large amounts per se, which suggests that there are not too many fanatical aluminium card collectors. I think the value is likely to lie in the subject matter on the card rather than the card substrate itself. However this, like the rest of this comment, is an opinion and not fact!

Q. Hi there - fabulous collection. I have been trying to find more info on Simpson's jewellery with no luck. I notice a number of people list Jewel Crest brooches as 'Simpson' even though there is only a Jewel Crest signature. Do you know if he was the only designer for Jewel Crest? Did he work for them at all? I read something that seemed to list them as individual companies. Hope you can fill in the gaps! Thx Linda

Q. I have just bought a teapot from an op shop that looks amazing, it's black with Chinese paper lanterns on it hanging from bamboo leaves, it's blue inside and has "Crown Ducal Ware England RdNo706201 and other little squiggles including 8 and what seems to be a signature. I really need someones help because i am new to collection.
[SillyTeapot   04/11/2009]
A. Crown Ducalware was made byA.G Richardson & Co Ltd, Gordon Pottery, Tunstall, England. If the mark on your teapot has a crown above it... that is 'Crown Ducal Ware England' with a crown above it would be dated c. 1925. Sounds like a lovely piece. I am not familiar with Crown Ducal prices but I would take a rough guess at $100 plus. Happy Collecting!

Q. Hello tool collectors, I have a question. I own a 'Buffalo Forge' blacksmith's post drill. Its the hand crank wall mounted type with the ratchet pawl downfeed mechanism that operates during cranking the drill. It is in very good mechanical condition but somebody has sprayed it in a white paint (probably to protect it from rusting) My plan is/was to completely renovate it and give it a coat of paint. Will this be a mistake? I may then mount it in my shed and actually use it, just as I saw a knife maker using his just a few years ago. I am new to this and don't want to make a blunder.
[terrygoss   08/09/2009]
A. Hello fellow tool collector, I too have a "Buffalo Forge" wall mounted drill with an automatic feed system. Luckily, mine doesn't have any paint on it - it appears to be polished metal that I keep well oiled. It will rotate for about 20/30 seconds with one crank of the hand wheel. I have aquired a few of the flat sided drill bits for it and it will be a feature of my blacksmith's shop. I have also come across some old advertisements for this exact same drill in some 1911 magazines called the "American Blacksmith" If I can be of any help to you? please communicate through this site.

Across the bottom in big letters it say's,"This Tobacco is only manufactured in America". Would love to hear anything ,as so far even an avid collector in the USA has never seen it!!

Q. Can anyone tell me the origin of DOMAY ceramics?
[trevordog94   24/04/2009]
A. Domay was the name given to a line of slipcast ware designed by Dorothy Hope in the 1950s and mainly sold through David Jones. She employed a small staff to do the casting and fettling but found the administration dull work, so she wrapped up the business in 1962 and left Sydney to set up her Thrumster Village Pottery near Port Macquarie. This is from her biography, Impressions in Clay, published in 1990.

A. Hi Julie, Unfortunately those cans were made in their millions, plus they are not old enough to really be of any great value. You may get $15 - $30 on eBay for them. I have around 40 sets of them, and will keep them for another 10-15 years and use them as traders then. Hope that helps. regards, Mike

Q. Looking for info. and feedback on my Carabine Single fin that has been converted to a 3 fin. Could this have been done before the Thruster turned up on the scene? Great example of a backyard inovation period surfboard.
[Wombat   02/03/2009]
A. Yes this was done way before the time of thrusters and even Bonzers which Peter Townend brought to Australia. I seem to remember Patrick or Kevin Parkinson making tri fins in 1970's under the brand cybernaut they were very similar in shape to the modern day thrusters the side fins were more or less semi circular in shape and were smaller than the centre fin which was the conventional shark fin shape these boards were ridden by the Bulli boys and really suited the steep take off at Peggies
[A Jay   13/12/2011]
A. hey wombat, I reckon there's a chance this improvisation might have been inspired by the recent, though patchy, arrival of californian bonzers from around 1973. Terry Cooper at South Coast Surfboards was building them at that time although they were a lot more complicated with channels and off set fins... Geoff Kater of surfresearch would be keen to know about this beast.

Q. I have an Australian stamp which I am having trouble finding anything about. It is the old style blue ink and white/paper contrast, it has 11d on it with the d slightly elevated and a full stop under it, there is a pic of a bandicoot on it however it is printed at the bottom 'rabbit' with the word 'bandicoot' under it. I can assume it is from around the 1928 era, as it was in the side of an old sewing maching I bought which was dated 1928. I have tried to take a pic however trying to photograph a stamp in detail is very difficult mostly due to the flash. Can anyone help me with information about this stamp?
[brontip   25/02/2009]
A. Bad news from my father I am afraid! "Issued 1959 SG Catalogue no 319 for sale from them at .15p so value from a collector 5cents if he was lucky."

Q. am interested in ansley teasets of solid colour with pink rose inside edge of cup. Can anyone tell me what this pattern is called. Also have Ansley black teaset with pink rose on outside of cup once again looking for name of pattern.
[floss   27/01/2009]
A. Hi, Many Aynsley patterns don't have names. There should be a number underneath the pieces. If it has a name, you might find it by looking for the number on www.replacements.com - go to China section, and select Aynsley, John (check your spelling). There are also two guides on ebay http://reviews.ebay.com.au/Guide-to-dating-Aynsley-china_W0QQugidZ10000000003871196 http://reviews.ebay.com.au/Aynsley-China-buyers-and-sellers-guide_W0QQugidZ10000000001132917 where you can find some more information.

Q. A friend has a Hasbro Voice-activated,interactive, Star Wars R2-D2 electronic toy that he wants to identify. The ony numbers visible,on the base, are 60801. No idea of the provenance,nor does it have an instruction manual,however it is somewhat random in responding to voices and movement nearby. It "speaks",moves and can go dormant and re-activate unexpectedly. The robot is approximately 12 inches/300 mm tall. On the Hasbro website I have found only what appears to be a hand-manipulated,smaller R2D2 and no apparent clue to help find any info @ this model. Do you have any idea? Thanks,Lawrenceagogo

Q. Hi: I'm trying to find Australian Pokerwork here. Where do I click on?
[zaky   11/12/2008]
A. Try typing in australiana or australian wood or just australian I see poker work on eBay all the time Its ALWAYS worth ticking the INCLUDE ITEM DESCRIPTION box, that one takes you to all sorts of wonders
[alleyes   31/10/2009]
A. You'll find Pokerwork scattered around Ebay. If you use the general term Aboriginal it will throw up ALL the latest listings. Sellers rarely use the word pokerwork in the title or description mainly because they don't realise that is the correct terminology. I used to work in Aboriginal Arts and Crafts for Maruku on Pitjantjatjara lands and have some lovely poker work animals including my fave a Bat. Start your own Poker work bower and I'm sure other fans will stop by. Marian
[dumberdash   19/08/2009]

Q. Is Martyn Boyd and Guy Boyd the same person?
[geoffisaac30   07/02/2008]
A. Martin was Guy's uncle, not his brother.
[cerambler   09/09/2008]
A. Martin was a writer not a potter. Guy set up the Martin Boyd Pottery in Sydney with partners Norma and Leonard Flegg in 1946. He transferred his interest in the pottery to Leonard’s brother Ronald in 1951 and went back to Melbourne where he ran a new pottery, the Guy Boyd Pottery, from 1952-1964. Meanwhile the Fleggs continued to operate the Martin Boyd Pottery in Sydney until 1963.
[cerambler   13/07/2008]
A. No They are different people. (brothers)
