I've seen the appraisers on "Roadshow" look something over with a fine-toothed comb, hunting for marks.
I have a couple of little figurines and have looked them over for marks, but there are none. They’re just a shepherd boy and shepherd girl that face each other. They came as a set, I’m sure.
The figures belonged to my grandmother, so they're probably just decorative, but they are pretty and I like to have them on my mantel. I'm not really concerned about whether or not they've got marks. They belonged to Grandma and that makes them precious to me.
