this is from today of me and another person just doing nothing but of sorting through rubish just for stuff that ist obviously is garbage, and putting it in areas where it can be thron away

and stuff that isn't obviously garbage ...it might be... but it's just not obvious at first glance...

then trying to sort it into piles with other items that seem somewhat similar or related..then i ran out of time and room on the foor ...
this represents about 1/100th of the stuff that still needs to be sorted (nevermind thrown away)

Image


there's so much glass related shit.... i opened up a cabinet in a corner for the first time ever, and this is what i saw


10 cabinets next to eachother, all filled with glassware like this one on every fucking shelf.
Image


there is so much glass ((and crystal i think) and china
i hate this.

oh ... if you want to look at these and point me the direction of which parts of the photos you think i might have better luck focusing on first/more than than other parts



also this is all the shit that the estate sale people didn't even see/touch/move by the way lol.. there's grandfather clock in the background you can't see from the photo.. could't help but notice they ddn't bother to put a price tag on it lol


oh and the 7 rubbermaid crates of costume jewlery 've been picking through findnig ittle pieces of gold that got mixed in.... and i mean little.. if it's alll real i might be up to 8 or grams grams after a good 10 hours of sorting with a magnet and then pending all night looking for karat imprints on anything that looked ike i imght maybe be real

(almost 100% chance it is not all real tho...half if i'm lucky)

I know the board broad has a spending problem. Maybe it will help you get in there.

If not, just keep throwing your board bros under the bus!

$40 if you don't make me bring it to you lol

you have to take it all though... not the garbage
but you are the proud new owner of 2 ugly leather couches, 2 oak tables, an antique desk that weighs like 200 pounds, a grandather clock taller than i am.... lots of art (dunno anything about it.. the frames seem nice thugh)

im not exaggerating when i say this represents just a small perrcentage of all the china that i havn't even moved/sorted yet... i probably habvn't even found it all.. i stumbled up a couple hundred more pieces hidden behind the furnace today hahha

The China looks like two kinds of bone china. One's an eight piece set and the other may be a partial 12 piece set. In order. Size (largest to smallest) plates are:
Dinner plates
Salad plate
Bread plate
Saucer (for tea cups of course)
Check on the bottoms of the plates - dinner plate bottom should have maker and pattern names. Depending on the popularity, they could be worth a decent amount. You can sell bone china to replacements.com. That's where people go to find spare pieces for their old sets that are missing pieces. Guessing that one of the patterns was their wedding gift. In the 30's to 50's everyone had wedding China. The other set may have been her mothers set or something, so older. Not sure which is which though. I'm not seeing much value in the glassware, except maybe the gaudy Crystal lamp base. You can still get flea market money for most of that if you want to invest the time. They seem to have liked to,buy mismatched Crystal. Not much in the way of sets there. Most of the clear glass does look like lead Crystal, though.

thats the problem


i brought 3 boxes to an antique store with about 40 pieces..of what looks to be crystal/leaded glass/depression era colored glass

guy pulled out 5 items and gave me $100 , then sent me away with just as much shit to get rid of that i arrived with...
but the real issue is that i have to pay to get rid of it all.....

and for every 45 worthless peices... 5 of them are worth $100
and i've got maybe one or two thousand more pieces to sort through ......and it's all mixed together and hidden in strange places... if i dont sort through all the junk looking for the few peies that are worth something...il be fucked


and it all looks exactly the same to me!!!!!!

in fact... the ones the dealer bought were like 4 random throw in's where i thought "no way i will be able to sell these, but might as well take em along if i have the space" ... those are the only ones he wanted hahah

Does the grandfather clock run? Is it solid wood or is there veneered wood on it in places? If you look inside the door you might find a maker name or Mark somewhere. That could help you figure it out. Most grandfather clocks from the 1900s have little value, but 1800's are sometimes high value, even if they look like shit. Value is in the quality of the movement. High end clocks had hig end movements. You should be see who made the movement without much problem.

They probably ether had a makers mark he recognized or they felt like quality.

Did those old dead people who owned that shit own a thrift shop or something. Oddest compilation of old shit I've ever seen. Most people buy that shit with a concept in mind - at least a style they liked. I think whoever owned that must have liked going to garage sales and flea markets.

they are mstly 3 brands....


one from england called meakin i think

one is from america..all the ones with the gold trim on everything..... it's name is escaping me (after looking at it on the bottom of plated all day today)
and there is a third one too.. but way less

then a bunch f randoms that only say like "made in germany"
or don't say anything at all and someone stuck a price tag of $50 or more on most of them that have no identifying imprints

i have been asking myself this exact question almost every 5 minutes with each new discovery i make


if you ever want to torture your living relatives after you are dead.... i could draw you a blue print on how to create a personal living hell for them.


step 1: have at least 7 rubbermaid containers filled to the top with high end costume jewelry that even has real gem stones and the 14k or 22 imprinted ont he inside.. but the part that says it's gold plated is in super small letter too small to read without a magnifying glass haahah



what kind of sick fuck open a costume jeweler company..or worse, buys it by the crate
and mixes it in with all their real jewlerly
then just leaves it like that, forgets about it, and dies lol

Intact gold and silver chains will be marked. Jeweler a always. Marked the good stuff. Usually marked on a small plate next to the clasp or on part of the clasp. Watch cases will be marked on the back too, as I'm sure you know. Plate jewelry isn't usually marked. Markings on 14,18 kit gold will differ by country. And era

Yeah they have to mark the plated as plated (or "gold filled") if they mark it at all. And yes, a magnifying glass is definitely your friend.

also like i said... i looked up these compaies on gogole
this is antique costume jelerly and they use real diamond and gem stones too i lot of the time


but it's all gold plated
and i dont think there'a huge demand for a tiny unset diamond or random blue gem/rock that falls out of a fake gold earring

"GP" after the number just means gold plated.

14k GP (Gold plated)

not just hat but

14kk GF is gold filled(another term for gold plating...or gold alloy perhaps which makes more sense. ive read different things but they all agree on one thing..it's worthless_

14K H.G.E. (hydrostatic gold electroplating)

14K G.E.P. (gold electroplated)

14 KP (gold plumb)


14k RGP (rolled gold plated)

1/20 14kt ....
1/10 10kt....
1/20 12k...
