    stop giving out valuable info us pickers have enough compitition in the jewelry business as it is dont educate uneducated people and let the educated buy the jewelry at low prices not all signed pieces are valuable monet is not really a great brand either buy jewelry in lots cheap of someone who wants to get rid of it and then piece it out dont buy monet unless you like it for you it does not sell for more than a couple bucks!

    How can I date a piece of carnival glass and have it appraised? I believe it’s very old the piece i have. Does anyone have information on this glass I have?

    Just remember to get a book that has the different factory marks because that it just about the only way to get an idea of how old the glass really is. They still make this stuff and unless you know what your looking at,it’s very easy to make a very expensive mistake!
