  7. Please excuse my ignorance tubamp, this is not my area. So you think the guys in my pictures are Americans stationed in England? Who are all the women in the picture? Thanks for your help!
  8. unless there is a manufacturers stamp or lable you will never know who made this chair. Quarter sawn oak, early 1900's.
  9. what really makes this special is the mortise and tenon joinery. Hopefully, it is an antique American farm or carpentry tool. Nice find, best of luck.

  15. blunder, what did they capture? I was studying the painting last night, and I think it is really great. I love the contrast between the fine detail of the man's face and the simple flowing lines th...

  27. I agree with trunkman, seeing closeups of the hardware, tacks, joints, etc. would be great. Looks like a nice one!
  28. thanks charmsomeone.
  29. Yeah, I had a little collection myself growing up, in fact, I think they are still at my folks house. I remember the hulk with the Hulkamanaia t-shirt, the ultimate warrior, jake the snake, and the J...

  33. I second that.
  34. rick55 thanks for the love!
  35. Ho2cultcha....the s choppers would have been at the end of a long pole like an ice scraper. Then the user would just stab or chop down at pumpkins and food like that. Hotairfan, took me a few yea...
  36. thanks bobby!
  37. thank you hotairfan for the kind words!!
  38. Cool clock. Plenty of info on Seth Thomas clocks on the web. Good luck.
  39. These are very tricky. Some were actually cookie/cake molds made to use, but many many reproductions have been made and China is cranking them out right now, and has been for 10 or so years. I see t...
  40. looks like a new piece made to look old. I do not see any carvings, most likely made in Asia....China or India for the export market.
  41. Here is an example of a multi tiered spoon rack: http://www.loweryantiques.com/AC-MIC-3002.html Here is a p-trest page with examples of spoon racks wall boxes and the like: https://www.pinterest....
  42. shareurpassion. I very much agree that the two pieces are fighting each other as you said. But I am not sure what you meant by "chair back". This is a small piece, only about 14 inches long and 6-8...
  43. tassiedevil, ttom, jscott, jlmam, officalfuel, violet, aura, vetraio, mikelv, ho2, lee thanks for the loves.
  44. It would be amazing if I could find some kind of marriage record. I did a quick search but nothing.
  45. Hi vetraio, thanks for stopping in. When I first read your comment I thought you meant that the piece itself is a marriage. Now I see what you mean. It was a marriage gift. The style of the carvin...
  46. I agree with you ho2cultcha, thanks for your opinion, it strengthens the case! Have a great day!
  47. when I zoom in on this piece, I realize that the carving here is second to none. No matter when this was made, or where in the world, it is an amazing piece of art.
  48. Hey there blunder, I will do! Valentino thanks for the comment! Yes I was very excited. Kind of risky, it is private property, but it is worth the risk! Thanks everyone else for the loves!
  49. alan thanks for the kind words! vetraio, a keen observation! I was talking to this guy I know, he has a few signed W&L pieces, and I bought this piece off him. He was saying that the coloration to ...
