Unless they are certified appraisers and or have many years of experience, many people in the antiques and collectibles business have problems identifying marks and symbols on different objects. People who collect antiques and collectibles often also have the same problem. Things would be a heck of a lot easier if there were an online website where one could look up a mark or a symbol and easily and efficiently identify the mark or symbol. Well look no further . . . help has arrived.
marks4antiques.com is a site dedicated to making identifying the marks and symbols of antiques and collectibles much easier for all of us involved in the market. One of the beauties of this product is that you no longer need to have 50 books on each type of antique and collectible to help you identify marks or determine the value of an object. Auctioneers, antique show people and EBayers alike are able access the online database from anywhere there is a connection to the Internet.
A recent story on the news told of how Marla Stickland of San Francisco bought a dirty and grimy cruet set from a garage sale in her neighborhood for about $10. What she didnít know at the time was that the marking at the bottom of the cruet was that of Hulier. She started doing research on the Internet to try to identify the markings but was coming up empty until she stumbled upon marks4antiques.com. It turns out that the cruet is worth more than $850.
Although not all stories will end as happily as Ms. Sticklandís, sometimes we just never know what it is we purchased and whether the product has any real value.
