Does anyone know this maker's mark:
It says, ICH DIEN Bird Eye W.A.X.S
However I am not 100% sure about the X, as it could be crossed swords? Also on the feather to the right it has an embossed flower on it.
Here is another look at the footed bowl/dish.
As you can see it's quite old with a lot of wear. However it's really pretty.
I would like to know the pattern and how old it is.
Now I know the maker of this piece, Royal Albert, "Top O' The Hill." Just want to know if it should have a lid with it.
Again it's had a bit of use, and some of the gold finish has worn away.
To my mind I would date this piece around the 60's, possibly into the 70's? Any thoughts?
At a local charity shop they have items in the two windows that go up for auction. You write your bid in the book and one week it's one window; the next the other window. The store finds it can make more money on it's better items that way. I put a bid in for $20 for these two items and mine was the winning bid.
Next week's window had nothing in that I liked, but they were setting up the other window when I picked up these items so didn't see everything they had in it, but there were a couple pieces of furniture I think we may bid for.
I published another book review yesterday if you want to check it out here.
