(Leeds).--The Messina water-colour studies and the Neapolitan body colours were produced as a regular industry. The value depends upon finding a purchaser. F. Z. (Jersey).--Difficult to give an opinion on paintings from photos; why not send them? E. S. I). (Kilburn).--You will find a list of firms who value antiques in our advertisement columns. S. F. (Shrewsbury).--We can advise you where to get the Stuart needlework repaired. A. G. N. (Reading).--Your painting is not worth the cost of restoration. A. C. (Newcaslle-on-Tyne).--The teapot is probably oriental, and the arms added since. Try the Heralds College. W. B. B. (Woking).--Your jar is Derby, the others recent Berbn manufacture, and not of much value. Old Berlin is very valuable. W. U. (Stockton-on-Tees).-Delignon, a French engraver, died 1804.

They should be worth, the small plates more
