Collectible Japanese Silver Yen. The Dragon Yen ...
The Japanese government began minting silver Yen coins shortly after the Meiji Restoration

The silver Dragon Yen, as it's known  was minted between 1870 & 1914 and is a fascinating coin both in the beauty of its design and for its historical value. This is a coin well worth collecting ....

In 1899 the Royal Doulton studio recruited a young designer by the name of Charles John Noke

Charles Noke was greatly influenced by James Hadley's style and initially served an apprenticeship under Hadley at Hadley and Binns before James Hadley set up his own design studio.

Noke is now regarded as the brainchild behind Doulton Seriesware, a range of designs in which standard blank shapes were decorated with a consistent theme.

He was also a gifted designer while working at the Royal Worcester factory and his output for Royal Doulton was considerable.

Every Doulton collector should aim to have at least one item by Charles Noke in their collection.

Collecting Limoges Porcelain ... A Connoisseur's Choice
It was during the 1870s that Limoges perfected its porcelain process, and the items produced then are considered some of the finest antique porcelain pieces ever made.

Limoges, is a French city southwest of Paris, which predates Roman times. Its physical placement, directly on the river Vienne, makes Limoges an easy, accessible stop; a necessary stop in those early years when journeys were more arduous than enjoyable.

Kaolin, an essential clay in the making of porcelain, was found just 18 miles South west of Limoges at St. Yreix. And, shortly after the first Limoges factory was established, Louis XVI bought it.

Today, antique Limoges porcelain trinket boxes, produced under the highest quality standards, are among the most highly prized porcelain collectibles.

However, there are several factors that contribute to the value of a piece of Limoges porcelain ...
- The factory where it was produced
- The Limoges porcelain mark
- How old it is; its condition; how complete a set is
- The quality of the decoration and the artist's signature

Im holding a piece that says Limoges on top of a crown and Coronet underneath. Then on the same piece overlaying just slightly is a stamp that is backward but says
FRANCE * LIMOGES. The star on the stamp is a little bigger though. Any help out there?

In 1903, Friedrich and Emil Gerbing closed the Gerbing & Stephan factory. Prior to that they and their predecessors produced some truly stunning Majolica pottery, beginning with Schiller & Gerbing who operated from 1829 to 1861 ...

Highly sought after Mabel Lucie Attwell collectibles bear the Shelley mark as do the wonderful Art Deco styled Harmony tea wares designed by Eric Slater and produced in the early 1930′s.

Victorian Glass ... it's amazing what you can still find at boot sales. And all for the princely sum of £6.75 ... BARGAIN!
