This Chinese ginger jar comes from an old Northern Neck family. The base is in excellent condition, but the lid has been broken and repaired crudely. The owners are thinking of making it into a lamp, and question whether so-doing would lessen the value.

This Victorian chandelier hangs in an old Northern Neck home. The owner writes that it is not original to the house, but was an estate sale acquisition many years ago for $100. The glass is hobnailed and amber-colored with matching prisms. The latter are not displayed, as some are missing. The owner has not been able to find any marking to indicate the maker.

This whale oil lamp was a recent charity bazaar purchase for $175. It is in excellent condition, except for a slight dent in the metal rim. The buyer was pleased to support the charity, and asks if she paid excessively.

This stoneware jug was a recent donation to a local charity, which has inquired as to its value. The rim has a small flake out of it, and one of the glazed slips has burst. Otherwise the condition is good. It is marked in blue with a stylized “4” and a drawn dragonfly, the latter being obscure. The jug is 18 inches high.
