I have a figurine with a mark of two crossed swords with a circle between the blade tips and the number 1439. Can you tell me anything about this item? Thank you.
Hi! The mark you see there, Crossed Swords with Circle or 'O' Pottery Mark, is the mark of HOMCO a Japanesse maker. Most of them may belong also to Arnart maker which is associated with HOMCO. There are also many fakers too which use the original mark to sell their copies. I can't tell you exactly the value of yours because depends on the figurine also, on how old is it. Generally the prices may vary from $20 to even tousands of dollars.
Thank you very much.
