In terms of the values, the least expensive is the youngest piece. GUEST: (gasps) APPRAISER: Transitional piece, today, ,500 to ,500 at auction. APPRAISER: And finally, this plate, today at auction, it's between ,000 and ,000, but that's a third of what it would have brought about a decade ago, so still worth a lot of money. These are just some of the reasons why the answer to the question "What's it worth?" is so often "It depends." Note the date: Take note of the date the appraisal was recorded.Although our valuations are based on research and experience, opinions can, and sometimes do, vary among experts.Appraiser affiliations: Finally, the affiliation of the appraiser may have changed since the appraisal was recorded.A shop owner will usually talk about what he knows best: the retail price he'd place on the object in his shop.
Most Newcomb has floral decoration on the bottom or the top, and then a blank area.
This is a really colorful transitional piece, so quite nice. One thing I do want to point out, the mark on the back of this piece, that would have been the Newcomb mark, is crossed out entirely.
And normally, when you see the mark crossed out, it means the piece is a second. I think this is a family piece, and they meant to keep it, so it was marked as unsalable, and that's why we see the Newcomb mark scratched out.
Somehow what you have looks similar to the ones that I have seen manufactured from Japan like the one found on this link also came across a previous posting made by another guest, however during that time I was not so familiar with the marks from Newcomb College Potteries and here is a link to it this is a generic export mark from Japan, ca. The artists and students at Newcomb made nothing like this, only the familiar art pottery.
the NC mark was used by many makers, importers and exporters from Japan.
