ON THE MARKET FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2004—11 Victorian bed is an eye-opener By ANNE MCCOLLAM Copley News Service Q: I have enclosed a photo of the headboard of an American antique bed. Both the headboard and footboard are made of black walnut and decorated with applied burled wood panels and hand carving. The overall height is 6 foot-5 and it is 4 feet, 6 inches wide. The bed is in excellent condition and still has the original finish and wood castors. What is its vintage and value? A: The basic design elements of your bed are typical of Renaissance Revival, a Victorian furniture sub-style. The crest-broken pediment balanced by vase-shaped finials, applied burled wood panels, wood castors and carvings are typical of mid- to late 19th century furniture. Your bed is a little less massive and ornate than most examples of Renaissance Revival and also has incised carving on the crest. Both these features were forecasts of the next Victorian sub-style, the Eastlake period. Your bed was made around 1860 and would probably be worth about $2,500 to $3,500. Q: I would like to learn the value and age of a silver waste bowl, cream pitcher and matching covered sugar bowl. Each piece is decorated with beading and engraved flowers. I inherited the set from my grandmother. She was bom in 1869, so she must have used it in the late 1800s. I have enclosed a drawing of the mark on the bottom of each piece. What can you tell me about my set? A: Derby Silver Co. was founded in 1872 in Shelton, Conn., which is across the Housatonic River from Derby. They were one of a group of companies that joined together in 1898 and became International Silver Co. "Quadruple Plate" is a term used on silver plated hollowware and flatware. The number "1600" is a design number. Your silver plated set was made around 1890 and would probably be worth about $150 to $250. Q: I have a piece of Roseville pottery that originally belonged to my grandparents who lived in Michigan. It is pink and decorated with long-stemmed white flowers and pad-shaped green leaves on the lower portion. The overall height is 8 inches and it has handles on either side. On the bottom along with the Roseville mark are the numbers "767-8." Could you please tell me if it is worth anything? A: Roseville Pottery was located in Zanesville, Ohio, from 1890 to 1954. Judging from your good description, the pattern is Primrose, which was introduced in 1932. It was produced in blue, tan and pink. The numbers represent the design and the height. Your vase has more than just sentimental value. It would probably be worth about $200 to $300. Q: I have a set of china dishes that belonged to my great-almt. Each dish is marked "Made in Japan." The set consists of four each, dinner plates, cereal bowls, cups and saucers, plus a cream pitcher and sugar bowl. She believes the dishes were purchased before World War II. They are decorated with a copper-luster glaze and are in very good condition. Any information you can give me will be appreciated. A: As a rule, the mark "Made in Japan" was used from around 1921. Dishes decorated with luster glaze were popular in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. Using that as a guideline, along with the information your great-aunt provided, it is safe to say your dinnerware was made around 1930 and would probably be worth about $150 to $200. Address your questions to Anne McCollam, P.O. Box 490, Notre Dame. IN 46556. For a personal response, include picture(s), a detailed description, a stamped, self- addressed envelope and $15 per item (one item at a time). Made in about 1860, this Renaissance Revival bed is estimated to be worth between $2,500 to $3,500. rbocci an Housen 462-5005 Erie (Jurboeei Jugnii Vim lloiigen Valeric Ltwseler Ann Gihcrsun- Broker Owner Broker Owner Rcullnr Keullur 114 South School Street-Ukiah, CA REDWOOD VALLEY Flat 7 acre parcel. 2 homes on the property. 2 COUE TAKE A LOOK at this BVB wells plus R.V. water.
