For What It’s Worth

A recent email requested the value of a pottery flask made by the Zsolnay Factory in Hungary. The email said the item was inherited from a 95-year-old grandmother who inherited it from her father. Many inquiries believe that the number on the underside of their item is a date, but it is not. It is a form or inventory number. This particular piece, with considerable flaws, is nominally valued, meaning no value. Sorry.
