  1. I think Kero-Sun first appeared in the mid 70's.
  2. I do not have any issues with this type of stuff as long as the vendor is selling them as decor items. I can get riled up when I see them being sold as antique. I do not care for the names on so...
  3. This does not look like an Asian cart made to look old, not from what I can see. The hardware would tell the story. It does look like a Paalmen ??? or close to that from the 30/40's. I would j...
  4. These show up at the antique mall, a dealer there sells all sort of replica antique looking stuff, including these. Many of the items have Remington, Well Fargo and other old names. I checked today a...
  5. Hard to say without seeing the front, that's always the most important angle when trying to figure out the make. That said it looks like a Bandai 1960's Sunbeam Coupe, about 5in long. Nice find!
  6. It looks like a recent made decor item.
  7. I looks like a tenon was cut out of the center of the opening. Maybe leveling jacks for some kind of table/cart?
  8. Of all the one I have seen, including the Standard Oil of California that I have are galvanized and not painted. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/37351-standard-oil-co-can That said I do li...
  9. Are there any markings on the bottom? They are a little out of proportion.
  10. Boy, not anymore, I've been out of Ohio for about eight years now. I'll ask a few friends I stay in contact with.
  11. It doesn't look like a real old one. They were sold in the 70-80's for decorations to hang next to the fireplace. You can pop popcorn in the fireplace with it.
  12. Here's one with original paint. Definitely worth having it professionally restored. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/185069865910924564/
  13. Nice! I like the 4 legged Deere signs
  14. Looks like a late 20's Cadillac. Here is a link to my Pinterest page of Pedals. http://www.pinterest.com/arizonadiecast/pedal-cars/
  15. Very Nice!
  16. That is too cool. The tractor looks like an Arcade Fordson, made in 1920's & 30's. More photos would help.
  17. Need more photos but what is seen here indicates it's JD D made by Ertl in the early 1990's. The fenders and hitch have been removed.
  18. That sure is a different one. I don't remember ever seeing one like that.
  19. Hubley did make some with two screws as well as a rather rare one that is facing to the left.
  20. Thanks Virginia. I am actually a higher end collector of older toys and diecast but there is something about a simple plastic toy you just have to love. I have several hundred pieces, mostly vehicles...
  21. All of the originals had screws holding them together, some had one screw and some had two screws. These have been reproduced since the 50's so one may have had one for years. Detailed photos would...
  22. Nice! I wouldn't say that I have collected these but when I get them I have a hard time letting go of them,lol
  23. Welcome to CW. I also agree with the others.
  24. Thanks fortapache
  25. I'm going with a reproduction. The casting is rough and is hand painted with modern paint. Still a fun piece.
  26. From that photo I would have to agree with Mani.
  27. Nice! I think I would restore it, but that just me. Here is a link to one as well as parts for sale. http://www.oldphoneworks.com/model-1243.html
  28. That does look like an early one. Just for the record, Coleman was still selling the gas irons in 1981, not sure about all the colors.
  29. That is so cool! The car is 1917 - 1925 if that helps.
  30. Thanks Rose and Trey
  31. Cool looking lock. It has the look of a great old lock although the back side of the rivets look suspicious. I airplane cut out is awesome.
  32. Thanks, Yes the vent is in the top back.
  33. Sorry about that. After a well done restoration it would value in the $700.00 range. I would think you should be able to get it finished for $100 -200.00 based on what can be seen in the photos. G...
  34. Sorry I missed this one. Thank you Gargoyle for tipping me off. This is a Sturditoy from the 1920's and quite collectible. I would think a professional restoration on this one would be in the $7...
  35. Nice old four legged deer from around 1956 to 1967.
  36. This looks like an ammo cart for a cannon. With those tires I would say it was pulled by a Jeep type vehicle. It is a Childs & Smith Atherstone for sure. Nice. I don't use this word often but...
  37. Welcome to CW. Nice tractor. I have collected farm toys for 45+ years and have not seen this one. First, it is not an articulated tractor. As for what went with it, Any farm implement like a plo...
  38. These can be very dangerous. Here is a good web page to read up on. http://www.blotorches.com/ I have a few, for decoration only.
  39. Could you post better photos?
  40. Well, if the table is 2 in tall that would make it about 1/16 scale. That would be great for the farm toy dioramas. Thanks
  41. Thanks nutsabotas6, I hope to get more posted soon.
  42. Thanks for the loves.
  43. Thanks for the loves.
  44. I'm sure it is just a decorative item and agree that is not that old. More info may help you get answers. What size is it, what is it made of?
  45. It does look like the Mustang emblem. It would be an after market one as the original Ford would have their logo and part numbers on the back side. There is just something about these emblem you ...
  46. I need to get out more, I have never even heard of the Sylvanian Families. Based on 14 in high this could be about 1/18 scale. Could you post the exact height of the kitchen table? A quick s...
  47. Wow! That is a strange one. It looks to be brass with a copper lining and steel wheels. Does a magnet stick to the box? Are you sure the wheels are fixed to the box or maybe they once turned and n...
  48. What? I never got one of those ......
  49. 60, grade of steel may be it. Maybe a sample? The history of BHP Broken Hill Proprietary’s rich history began in a silver, lead and zinc mine in Broken Hill, Australia. Incorporated in 1885,...
  50. Nice, I would call them Dove book ends. The results are the same when they fly over your clean car, but Dove just sound more pleasant than Pigeon, lol
