[An unusual teacup owned by Laura Graham has the face of a Japanese woman on the bottom. The face can be seen only when the cup is held up to the light.  Even though the cup and saucer set has a couple of nicks, expert Sally Fleshman thinks it is worth at least $100.]

[This chain with attached cross may have been ordered from a Sears, Roebuck catalog, but the other cross, which is either ivory or bone and which has a tiny picture of the Holy Family inside, is a real treasure that would bring owner Kathy Diamond at least $450.]

[This green and white pitcher is part of a three-piece set brought by Jackie Cook and owned by her mother, Darlene Treanor.  Made in England, all three pieces would bring about $600.]
