  3. i had one of these!!! love it!
  4. kyratango thank you for solving the mystery! Alan thank you for your kind words.
  5. thanks fatboy64 for the love
  6. the trombone closure dates it to the late 1800's I think.
  7. beautiful peel! I collect peels and have them in all different shapes and sizes. All wrought, none quite like this one with the decoration and the simple hole for hanging. Really nice.
  8. lol
  9. beautiful piece!!!
  10. amazing man, love this. Looks like a lifetime worth of hard work searching and collecting. So well worth it. Thank for posting, it gives me inspiration.
  11. amazing assortment of bottles. Did you dig most of these???
  12. spirit bear, wow. those are incredible!
  13. I can take the rejection blunder....sniff sniff.
  14. thanks for sharing your collection. amazing!
  15. olebodie I see you have experience in this...you think they are just rocks?
  16. I haven't found anything else, no. But others have in Manalapan, and surrounding towns. olebodie probably just another two rocks....thanks for the opinions guys!
  17. You guys are usually right....I don't know...They would work so perfectly as tools, of course, that is the only evidence I have of them being tools (along with what I mentioned above). So I could nev...
  18. thanks agram!
  19. yeah that is true. I guess you can never know. I did see some in a local museum very similar. You never know thought.
  20. mrcolorz,i have no idea what that is I will try to do some research. Strange!
  21. Cool man, I will check it out. You dig for bottles too?
  22. Hi valentino, I will certainly do the research! I am trying now.....but not getting very far..... I have not found indian tools from this type of rock. But today I found 1 or maybe 2 rocks that look...
  23. interesting, thank you mr colorz and blunderbuss for the help. maybe I will try smashing one tomorrow, thanks!
  24. thanks for the loves valentino, alien, vintage, bobby, violet, hotair, vetraio, aura, sean, jscott, mike, blunder, melanie
  25. Or perhaps it is pyrite?
  26. hotairfan, Yes, i agree with everything you say, and I am thankful that you took the time to look it over. As you mentioned, there are small holes in each of the four corners bored into the bottom b...
  27. Hey blunder, yeah most likely early PA Dutch. Hoping the painting is nearly as old as the chest. What a steal I got on this piece if it is real. I drove up north jersey about two hours to pick up a...
  28. hotairfan, I never tried to use rush to produce light. It sounds like you did everything right. Maybe you can try soaking it in a different kind of fat or grease? Or perhaps, as you said, tryin...
  29. hotairfan, if you have some time I would like you to take a look at something I just came upon. If you have the time of course. I will post it later tonight. I value your opinion, I have a feeling ...
  30. filigree, any markings?
  31. ive been looking for one of these myself for some time. They do not come come around too often and are quite pricey. Well done!
  32. thanks for the loves vetraio, manikin, blunder, aura, racer, jscott, and mike
  33. agram, not sure if you saw the updated photos. What do you think? Hope all is well, thanks for helping!
  34. just added them.
  35. Yes, agram, i purchased the piece. The color of the piece in the pictures is not right. I does look brass. I believe it is about coin silver quality. I will take some more pictures without that yel...
  36. I think so too scott but wasn't sure. It ended up being a buck or two, so I figured I would give it a shot. thanks!
  37. purchased in Red Bank, NJ at an antique store.
  38. Hi Dhakir, thanks for the info. Yes, a Kris, that is right. I bought it from an antique deal who went out of business. An older guy. It looks like it is made of brass.
  39. thank you vetraio!!!!
  40. its blue depression class. Try looking up the different patterns, see if you could math it.
  41. yes, I thought so. I like these immigrant trunks. Take care!w
  42. thanks agram, wind, lovely, katherine, violet, aura, vetraio, efes, and ho2 for the loves!!!!
  43. To me, I look at the sea. How many pieces of wood is the seat made out of? If it made from a single piece of wood, then it is an antique and I consider buying. If it is made of more than one piece,...
  44. Yes. Hi I have a similar chest. Although mine is more ornate, I believe the construction is very similar. Beautiful piece! http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/169228-domed-immigrant-trunk-...
  45. thanks katherines, and ho2cultcha for the kind words!
  46. How could I tell the quality of the saphires? Is there something I can do? Or does a jeweler have to look at it? I really appreciate the help, thank you so much!!
  47. I am also wondering if this is platinum not silver, I will have to test it
  48. thanks for the loves: vetraio, martika, aura, caper, nice melanie, katherine, racer, tassie, mikelv, efes, sean!
