Value can be driven by the make and finish of a firearm, such as a Merkel shotgun, or a Holland & Holland rifle, or how rare a gun is (there is reportedly ONE Pre WW II Luger pistol made in 45 ACP) or it's connection with a historical person (Gen. Patton's revolvers). It is reported that a engraved Colt Dragoon given by Samuel Colt to an Arab sultan in 1853 was donated to the Museum of Art, and is valued at $6 million.

Silver plated Britainia metal. Britannia metal (also called britannium or Britannia ware) is a specific type of pewter alloy,
Fine china is made of a white clay made to imitate porcelain. Porcelain is one of the many types of clay used in China. Porcelain is considered valuable because of its white color and translucence.
Porcelain is made of three materials: quartz, feldspar & kaolin (refined white clay) fired at a very high temperature. This was first made in China, creating the category "chinaware" In the 1700's the Europeans tried to copy the formula by trial and error. Meissen succeeded. The raw materials were found in Germany and France (Limoges region) and these countries produced porcelain. In Britain, they substituted bone ash for the quartz and feldspar creating bone china. Fine china is a created category, usually referring to bone china and porcelain as opposed to stoneware, ironstone and earthenware which is fired at a lower temperature and prone to chipping and crazing.
hello!!!! I´m writing from Colombia (sorry about my poor english) and I can tell you.....YES, Germany made a Gecado hand gun cal 22. My father bought this gun in 1.973 / 75 (I´m not sure about the year) and he has it yet. I´v heared that Gecado is a very good weapon, despite its ''tiny'' cal. I hope helping you. Bye.
Navy Arms was an importer. It was most likely made it Italy
The value of collectables are determined by demand for the item. Rare items often command top dollar when in pristine condition. Book value has no meaning without a prospective buyer. To determine the value of Universal Statuary Corp. figures 1958 n.s. 502, an expert should be consulted.
The best way to determine actual value is to search the on-line auctions, such as gun broker and auction arms or even proxibid enter your details in the search and see what is selling and for how much. You can also search the archives and or sold items to get an idea of what your gun is selling for. Another place to look is The blue book of modern black powder values, available from midway USA and blue book publications as well as many of the other hunting and firearm stores. Also available to NRA members on - line for free on there web page. That will give you an idea of the general value. Guns tend to have some regional value too, say a Thompson Center Seneca may be worth a bit more in the north east than in the mid west, and a Ruger old army may sell higher in the northwest than the east coast. Don't forget condition has allot to do with value, and with black powder the bore is king. You may have a gun worth for example $500, but the same gun with a bad or rusted bore may only be worth $150 so compare apples to apples.
Value is $550.00
A real one is worth in the millions. However, the chance of finding a previously unknown Strad is astronomical whereas coming across a modern copy, worth less than $2000, is extremely common, just check out Ebay. Except for a few stolen Strads only 500 or so originals remain and their locations are known.
According to one entry on an Ullman genealogy website, the Ullman Manufacturing Corporation was founded about 1888 by Nathan, Max, Louis and Isidor Ullman and Mark Stiles in New York City. The address was 319 McKibbin St., Brooklyn, New York, in 1946. I can find no evidence of its existence after that date. They did a big business about 1900-1915 in the sale of framed reproductions, postcards, theatre posters, jigsaw puzzles, books, etc. Their lithographic reproductions were apparently inexpensive and widely sold. They were not the sort of thing passed down as a family heirloom, but were stored away when they were no longer fashionable, and are now found in antique shops and online auctions at prices ranging from a few dollars for a postcard to possibly $100 for a framed lithograph in excellent condition.
your Piano is between the 1950s-1960s
I bought one from cash converters for $100 AUS.
That depends on a number of factors.
1. The instrument may indeed have been made in 1720, or it could be a repleca of an instrument made in 1720 (which is far more likely) and in such a case, the value may not be as great as you might expect.
2. The quality of the instrument's craftsmanship goes a long way towards its end value. If it was hand made, that's a plus. If it was made by a reputable maker, that's even better.
3. The actual age of the instrument. The older the violin, the more it is worth, typically.
4. The current condition of the instrument plays a huge role in value as well. If you have a cracked back or face, or if the seams are opening up or if the fingerboard is cracked or warn down the value drops significantly. One can drop a lot of money into repairing an instrument to playable status.
5. The quality of tone, resonance, and responsiveness that the player can get out of the instrument also plays a vital role in how much players are willing to pay for the instrument. And believe it or not, players will pay far more than collectors ever will... because it is their livelyhood.
The best way to determine the worth of an instrument is to take it to a reputable repair shop and have it apraized. If they tell you it's valuable, you can have it repaired and sold, or you can keep it for yourself. However, it's always good to have quality instruments be placed in the hands of someone who is capable of playing it to its full potential.
I did happen to find one instrument, a Laurentius Storioni fecit Cremonae 1790 Douglas Cox 2001 Brattleboro Vt #438 that was being sold for $16,000 USD from a dealer. The link is below:
You need Polaroid SX-70 film. There is a group of people doing something called The Impossible Project (google that and you'll get to their website) which is recreating Polaroid instant film. This is apparently harder than you think--the company that made the dye Polaroid used, which is very unique stuff, won't make any more nor will they tell you how to do it, so the Impossible people are creating one of their own.
According to the Singer Co website, it's supposed to be a Model 221, made January 7, 1941.

There are different models of 1951 sewing machines, so it would depend on which model you have.
Vintage sewing machines are valued much like vintage automobiles. Just saying you have a Hudson sewing machine is not enough to establish the value. Several other factors must be considered: - Condition: Is it a rusty hulk, or shiny, showroom shape? - Model: Each manufacturer made several machines for different pocketbooks, just as with autos, the luxury models usually retain their value better than the utility models. - Configuration: If it is mounted in a treadle cabinet, how many drawers does the cabinet have? Counting the center drawer, it could be 3, 5, or 7 drawers. Is there any fancy carving on the cabinet, or is it pretty plain? Often, the treadle cabinet is worth more than the machine itself! - Accessories: Does the machine have its instruction manual and full complement of accessories that came with it? Are there any additional accessories that were purchased later? Then there are other issues that can affect the selling price of a vintage sewing machine: - Location: If you live in an upscale neighborhood, probably very few buyers will be interested in an average condition old sewing machine. If you live in an area with a large number of lower income families, they might want an old, reliable sewing machine to actually sew on. - Furniture value: If your machine is in a nice wood cabinet, some may be interested in it purely for its decorative value. Others will shy away because they don't have room for a cabinet or it does not match their décor. Some buyers will only want a portable model they can stash away in a closet when not in use. - Shipping: If you are only willing to sell locally, your market will be limited. If your machine is small enough to ship, listing it on Ebay might bring a quicker sale and higher price. Speaking of Ebay, that is probably the best place to research prices for old sewing machines. Look for machines of the same model and age, in the same condition. Note the accessories that come with it and see how closely your item matches the Ebay item.
Weldbond has been recommended by many.
Mix it 5 parts of water per 1 part Weldbond and apply to each edge of broken ceramic to seal.
After that's dry, working with two pieces at a time, apply undiluted Weldbond to each edge and wait until slightly tacky. Press the pieces together and hold with masking tape until dry.
Weldbond dries clear and is nontoxic, so you should have a usable, attractive bowl when finished.
Another option is to take the bowl to a ceramics shop where they can repair and re-fire it, often make it look new again.
Donald MacPherson's set sold for £30 000 after he died, that's the most expensive as far as I know
How much a Singer 401A sewing machine sells for depends on a couple of factors. The first being it's general condition. A machine that's in superb mechanical and cosmetic condition will sell for much more than a tired, dirty, and biffed up one.
The second factor is, what is included with the machine? Does it come with an instruction manual? Attachments? A carry case. Extra items?
Also, consider shipping cost if you are buying from a distant seller.
Currently a 401 in reasonably good condition, with no case, attachments or manual is selling for around $100.00 or more on eBay, plus shipping. A fine condition 401 with case, manual and attachments, around $250.00, plus shipping, and a 401 with loads (and loads) of extras recently sold on eBay for $450.00. I purchased a mint condition Singer 401A with Mint -in -box buttonhole attachment ,various fancy attachments (ruffeler, and some others,blindhem etc) instruction manual and tan sewing box with extra parts for $750.00 from eBay just over 3 years ago.
