Posibble. Chinese will offer big money just to retrieve their lost artifacts like this jar, it could be from a certain period or dynasty.

I am looking forward to finding out.

I love this dessert dishes!!!

They look like Noritake Sweet Swirl. Vintage 1970’s

If it was and I had it, SOLD! Haha

I watch you on pal. I just love your wisdom and knowledge in these precious items. You are wonderful...

Fish Plate. But I love the Fenton tree!

Painting

Fenton blown glass in very good condition, majolica plate in very good condition also but both are old i think and more valuable, figurine i think is contemporary and the painting also but also valuable. I pick fenton tree 😂

Fish plate

IF INDEED THE FISH PLATE IS MAJOLICA THEN THAT WOULD BE MY PICK.

I like the painting.

Picture. N franke

Fish plate for sure

Wow...i love the Fenton tree but im going to go with the fish plate

The Fish plate!

Don’t forget to share!

Hey! Did u ever talk about my van Vorst painting you appraised for me?

Hey Linda. Thanks for joining

I’ve tried Dr. Lori. Maybe because it doesn’t show the link on my phone.

I have a crystal bowl with a signature in it

Hi Dr. Lori, so happy to see you!! I know I owe you a graphic, I will get it to you this week 🙂

Hey Dr. Lori🍻

Hi Doctor Lori! 👋

Hi Dr

How do I do a call in with you

Sewell

Waiting for my Keith Haring appraisal from Dr. Lori.

Ok enough

We love u Dr. Lori, U are definitely the best! I appreciate ur help and appraising skills, I was able to liquidate my last estate sale with complete confidence thanks to u💝 Looking forward to purchasing ur services as soon as it safe for me to open up my estate sales. Warm hugs

Love watching your show Dr. Lori. I was wondering what you think of the shows where explorers go into abandoned mansions. The mansions are loaded with beautiful antiques. It's sad that the antiques aren't being preserved.

Love you as always !

Is it a bad thing if there is no frame and the painting is just on canvas?

Hey Dr Lori I’m here a little late you helped me so much....not wasting money on junk in my collection

I am with these two ladies. None go in the dumpster.

The pedestal I love them all but I think it's the pedestal that is worth the most

Keep, keep, keep! I’ll watch and see how I did. LoL.

Its a circus truck. The round windows are for the animals.

Definitely no dumpster!!!

None go in the dumpster

I’d Keep it all

Keep all.

No Dumpster for all.

No dumpster!!’

Dumpster is out of the question.

Roy Rodgers truck is most valuable

I’d be dumpster diving if any of these 3 were in there!

NO dumpster for all - even if they are worth less than $50. !
