It is usually very difficult to find a discontinued pattern but this company appears to have your pattern.
The cost: $25.75 x 2 = $51.50 plus shipping from the US.

This only comes in a double roll but maybe this will provide what you need and some left over for any future needs.

Since one company has this, it may be available at other Waverly outlets.
If you have any Waverly shops in Australia, you might want to check with them first.

It is really difficult to provide value information on a console (any brand) as the final value will be determined by where you are located and what reaction the community has to vintage consoles.
Consoles are big and very heavy and rarely will anyone pay to have one shipped.
This means they are advertised as 'local pick up only'.
Some areas have room for items like this and other areas have no desire to own anything like this.
You probably do not know what your area likes or dislike unless you have been checking sites like Craigslist, USA4Sale, or Facebook Marketplace to see if any are selling any similar consoles in your area.

I can only recommend that you take good pictures and list your console on similar sites to see what the market is in your area.
Start your price high - $2,000 - $2,500 - with offers considered and local pick-up only.
Leave it posted for several weeks and if you receive no offers, lower the price and wait again.

This is the same model console as yours and is listed for $100.
It may not sell for even that low amount.
However, this is an excellent example of how your pictures should look and a good description. Pictures sell an item.

I didn't find china with blue border and flowers on www.replacements.com/, as on the pattern of your china.
If your china does not have a maker's mark on the back, then I noticed that the pattern has a word, but it is impossible to make out in the photo. Write what is written there or add a photo of the word. Perhaps this word on the pattern will help identify the china.

If you did not obtain any breed information from the seller, or see the birth parents, you will probably have to do a DNA test if you really wish to know the breeds of your pup.
Sometimes, with several good pictures, age, and measurements someone can suggest certain breed traits but it's all just guessing.

DNA test is a good thing to have as it may provide health information also.
DNA tests range in price from $69 to hundreds but even the lowest price should tell you what you're asking about.

The only way to be certain of the breed of your cute pup is to have a DNA test done. This is also good to have done to provide info regarding the health of your pup. Embark ranges around $160 & was created in collaboration with Cornell University College of Vet Medicine. It also draws from a database of 350+ breeds & gives results in 2-4 weeks. It tests for more than 200 diseases including glaucoma, degenerative myelopathy, and dilated cardiomyopathy.

Usually, a full set will be worth a small amount but 8 books do not appear to be a complete set so no matter the edition date, these are virtually of no value.
Sometimes thrift stores will take a nice set but will not be interested in a few books. The 1981 is a yearbook and these are so plentiful they are of no value either.

The 1768 date is when Britannica company was first started, NOT an issue date for a set of encyclopedias. For your edition, look at the inside front pages for a publishing or edition date. Encyclopedias less that 100 years old, are NOT considered antique, and are only worth a few dollars per book in the set. The 1981 book is a yearbook only, and not valuable either. But it may be your edition's printing date. Even libraries don't want them anymore, even for their book sale fundraisers. Better to just donate to a thrift store - if THEY even want them.

It is difficult to provide an accurate answer without more information, but it appears these are authentic reproductions of Thomas Kinkade paintings.
As I read it, the Kinkade Company provided legal permission to several art studios/companies to make copies of his work and sell them to the public and other studios, who then sold them to the public.
This makes it difficult to provide accurate information as most often there is no official COA provided with these pictures but information about the style, size, material, and name of the painting is located on the back of the painting. It seems the studio name is also supposed to be on the back of the painting.
I believe this information is supposed to be on each painting but not all studios comply and there does not seem to be anyone checking up on this.

It appears your pictures may fall in one of the categories such as shown in this link:

www.ebay.com/.../265749507117?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM...

I believe your pictures were purchased from a studio and then had the pictures framed in the style that suited them.
It appears the frames are plastic (from the pictures) but they could be another material - wood?

Thomas Kinkade pictures are loved around the world, but rights to reproduce were provided so freely, this type of work is prevalent and lowers the value of his real official limited editions/work.
However, it also provides access to his paintings to so many people who could never have afforded any type of his paintings.

If you read about some of his accomplishments, it would be difficult to not agree that his life was of huge benefit to the world.

I'm sorry, but I am unfamiliar with any brand that uses a rose on the bottom of a doll.
It's possible someone placed the rose there for their own reasons and is not a brand mark.

I can only suggest you contact several of the doll forums, as these members have a lot of knowledge about antique/vintage dolls.
You will need to add a few items to the description before asking for their help.
Measurements.
Composition - very important.
Your doll is a boy doll, so this may narrow the search for them, as not all companies made boy dolls.
It would be best to contact several sites just in case one site does not recognize your doll.
You will have to join the groups before you can post, but all are free to join. Some may ask for donations but you can ignore that.

There are numerous ways to do this but if you have a power washer - or can borrow one - this is the fastest and most effective way to go.
You will still need to use cleaners and disinfectants but if your patio is very large this is your best option.
Hardware stores usually have these for rent and you'll only need it for a few hours.

Use a solution of water and detergent (or ammonia) to clean deep into the cracks.
You can read online solutions for types of cleaners to use and in what steps but you will definitely need an Enzyme cleaner to finish the job. Why? Enzyme cleaners are the only cleaners that will eliminate urine odors as bleach, hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, etc will not eliminate the smell. That is why animals return to the same spots to do their 'business' as they can still smell the odor.

Remember: you are washing the odor into the ground around the patio, so some smell will remain in the dirt/grass for several days.
You may need to spray this area also.

Age and Value of Domestic Treadle Sewing Machine?

June 30, 20220 found this helpful

This sewing machine was made by the Wm. A. Mack & Co., starting in 1861. They received a patent for its version of the sewing machine in 1863. Wm Macks brother joined the firm after serving honorably in the Civil War in 1866 and began selling the Domestic sewing machine from a wagon.
When the Mack brothers left the company, Domestic stopped being the leader of the industry and started to copy the Singer model 27. The name of this Domestic model was King. It is not quite clear what the early models were named. The company used at least one number, the No.3, which was sold in the 1880s. Machinesif No.1 and No. 2 were made between 1861 and 1879 approx. After the numbers came to the models with letters- A. B. C... which would have debuted sometime in the 1870s or 1880s. 1884 was the first-named model and it was called Reliable. After that and about 1890 give or take a year or two, the company produced the New Domestic. Then came the King which as you have already read, was a clone of the Singer 27 sewing machine. sewingiscool.com/.../

Models with a wood cabinet, no name but with serial 469723 may have been produced after 1924 and before the companys demise. On average for the machines with cabinets in good condition worth between $175 to $225. sewingiscool.com/.../

Hamburger Patties Are Dry?

June 30, 20220 found this helpful

I think you they are overcooked.
Do not do any more mixing of your burger meat than necessary.
Do not cook patties straight out of fridge or the freezer.
Take them off just before you think they're finished, they continue to cook after they're removed from the heat.

Making a Door Squeak?

June 30, 20220 found this helpful

I'm in a similar situation. Someone greased a door that we deliberately want to squeak so we can hear when someone is coming or going. However, I can't use heavy chemical cleansers. Would vinegar or something else be able to restore the squeak?

Doggie Doors are not a good idea because, you are inviting thieves into your home. A small child could enter the home through the doggie door, walk up to the front door and open it to let someone from the outside in.

Getting Rid of Tiny Black Biting Bugs?

June 30, 20220 found this helpful

OMG ! I have been dealing with the same thing for a little over a year . It's changed everything about me . It takes me a really long time to get ready because I have to steam anything I wear . I keep all my clothes in bags I put in sealed tubs . I vacuum and steam daily. I've tried everything multiple times including prescription creams and oral Ivermectin on three separate occasions two times a week apart . The dermatologist did a biopsy of one of the sores on my scalp which she said came back clear of anything but the biopsy report said spongiotic dermatitis with a rare eosinophils. This dermatologist prescribed an antidepressant and thinks I'm crazy or delusional apparently . What was interesting is while she was doing the biopsy she said she thought she saw something move . I guess she is just delusional too. This is ruining my life and I can't get adequate medical care .

Some books on the history of Noritake do state that not every pattern was recorded in the factories. This seems to refer to patterns that were not successful and very few 'runs' were made.
Since this mark was used for so many years, there is no real way to state what year this pattern was produced.

There are several good books on Noritake patterns, and you may be able to do an online search for libraries that may have some of these books available. If you have a current library card, you may be able to have a book sent to your local library, where you can review it or check it out to search for this pattern.

Another way that sometimes works is to find a book for sale on eBay and ask the seller if they would check to see if your pattern is in their book. You may have to check with several sellers, or you could buy a book.
It is my understanding that one book is very good.

This mark was used in 1930s (in the early 1920's until around 1940). I found this information here: gotheborg.com/.../noritake.shtml
"Mark: "M" for Morimura in a wreath, crowned by "NORITAKE" and below, "Hand painted" and "Made in Japan". This mark was registered in 1918 and seems to have come in to used in the early 1920's when it was used until around 1940, in combination with pattern names and number, and also some rows mentioning that a patent for the decoration was applied for. Tentative date; 1930's."
Your Noritake china pattern was used in 1930s.

Identifying A Ring?

Examine the gem carefully.
Yellow sapphire usually tends to have several flaws, such as fine crystals, feathers and needle-like inclusions.
Most of the citrines found in the market contain no visible inclusions.

Citrine has a slightly lower refractive index - it is a tad less brilliant than the yellow sapphire.

Without a photo of the hallmark we can only guess.
I did not find the mark 81, but there is 84. Perhaps the number 4 is not clearly visible.
84 - zolotnik fineness = .875
84 met with silver from many countries, for example, Estonia, Finland, France, Iran, Poland, Russia
