Do you have pictures you can send?
.
If your message box has a blue box that says "attach file" or a paper clip icon you can use that to upload photos. If not then Click the link: for instructions on uploading images, Be sure to be signed into Google Chrome in order for this link to work, if not signed into Google Chrome, then you have to copy and paste the link in your browser.

.
If your pictures are on a phone, plug the phone into the computer, then you can upload to the site right from the phone, the phone will be treated as a removable drive.
.
Or you can use this site, then forward the link from your pictures to the messsage area.
https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/210076663-Upload-Images
.

Or you can send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me.
.
Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques".
.
In the body of the message put , your user name and name.
.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with just answer with , so they know who you are. If you send from a phone the email address on the phone you use has to match the email address you used to register on the justanswer site with.
.
Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It's a piece of brass (?) that curves as it reaches the top.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 2 months ago

Hi,

The piece that goes up the middle, does it connect to the center bowl? as in does it come out in the middle of the top bowl?

No it does not come out at any point.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 2 months ago

Hi

I have not idea then, it looked to me to be a water feature, where the water tumbled from the top one down. But, I do not know what else it could be other then a candle holder. I will opt out maybe someone else knows what it is.
