Expertise

I can take questions related to: PRIMARY: 18th-20th century Pottery, China, Art Pottery, Stoneware, Glassware (including bottles and jars). Can help you identify manufacturer, country of origin, date of piece (approximate) and a range for valuation, however, such values are purely subjective and influenced by a broad range of market factors. SECONDARILY: As a passionate preservationist, and having studied architectural design-acted as associate publisher of a commercial construction magazine covering that topic for 8 years, I can assist in identification of various salvaged fenestration items. I can offer some assistance with antique furniture (19th & 20th century) as well as vintage home decor items such as lamps and artwork. I know nothing about slot machines, but there seem to be plenty of other folks on here who do.

Experience

I have been collecting vintage and antique items for over 20 years. As an artist working in various mediums, I have strong art history knowledge and a passion for anything with a historic value (even if it may have little monetary value). Having grown up in agriculture, I have first-hand understanding of some of the more obscure farming equipment and items used in daily farm life.
