I'll just be honest and tell you that we don't often get premium high value items like this. Some sellers think a big name auction house will net them a better price but eBay is literally the biggest auction in the world so why not?! As someone who is fond of old lamps it was a real pleasure to handle this and I was grateful for the opportunity to find this a new home!

Antique Meissen Victorian Porcelain Figurine 127 57 Cherubim Angels

Old porcelain figurines are one of the top ten items people used to collect but now call us to get rid of. Most such figurines have limited value and can be difficult to sell but a few can have fantastic value. Anything made by Meissen - usually marked with a pair of blue crossed swords - requires a close look. Meissen has been producing fine china items since the early 1700's and still have a following of collectors to this day. It's important to note that this figure did not have any damage - if it had any chips, the value would have been much less.

Antique Victorian Mahogany Mira Swiss Music Box w 50 Record Discs

The fact that this actually still worked was a big contributor to the value but even moreso was the fact that it had 50 music records with it. I know large old music boxes have a small but serious following of collectors but I was pleasantly surprised with this sale which makes up for all the sales last month I was disappointed with hahahaha.

Old Chinese Qing Carved Xinjiang Zitan Wood Spinach Jade Ruyi Scepter

So I've been talking about the rise in value for old Chinese items and I was super excited to see that pieces very similar to this had previously sold for as much as $10,000! After several months fishing for an offer, I let it auction on eBay and this was the high bid. I was pretty disappointed as I thought it was worth so much more but I should know by now to take my own advice: Just because I see something someone else sold or think I know something, I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up in the first place.
