OK, V&A experts, another request for help. I have two heavy wooden canisters that at first I thought were perhaps East Asian, possibly East European or Slavic. But as I was researching the pieces and looking very closely, I noticed a few things. First, in addition to the weight, they show signs of being lathe turned. Some of the designs do have Early American elements, the small dots and curving lines. I keep coming back to that weight. They're not large yet together weigh close to three pounds. I've been doing a lot of research on Early American treenware, which is what toleware is called when it's applied to wood instead of metal. I am not finding anything like these lidded canisters. I imagine they were spice boxes, possibly saffron boxes. But I'm pretty much reaching a dead end there. Do you think they are Early American? Reproductions? They appear to have a lot of age. At the same time, I'm not sure that gold paint was used heavily in wood tole (treen). Any thoughts, insights, expertise is greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone, I'm little bit in the pickle right here with this beautiful porcelain cherub figurine. Besides the blue crown mark over the K. I have nothing! But when you zoom on the marking, it looks more like capital V and l, than the K. It seems to me that its an Italian Capodimonte, maybe Kings Porcelain? I'm just lost... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Here is few pictures of these cuties.
