Q: I’m very curious about this family heirloom. My grandparents gave it to my dad and I’ve always been fascinated with the intricate pieces and detail and enjoy just looking at it. It’s made out of wood, about 18 inches by 10 inches, and 2 inches deep. The year 1848 is carved on the table cross piece. On the back it says, “Made in Austria.” I’d love to hear your thoughts on this! A: What you have is generally called a 3D diorama or a shadow box interior scene.
Q: I am interested in the value of this blue Shirley Temple set — a cereal bowl, drinking glass and small milk pitcher. The etched face of Miss Shirley is truly visible on each piece. A: Who has the most appearances on a box of Wheaties? Well, it’s Michael Jordan with 18, but our gal Shirley Temple is second in line with 12.
Q: I am sending you photos of my three-piece Fenton Glass Perfume Set. The round jar and bottle are both numbered 786/1000. When I Googled it, I got a $500 value, but I don’t know if that’s right. I tried getting a price guide from the library, but couldn’t find it. I would appreciate any info you could give me. I know Fenton Glass is no longer being made. I noticed there are several Fenton Clubs listed in the price guide, but nothing local.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
