  1. I thought that, but it is a large napkin ring, and very heavy.....But maybe it could be.
  2. I think so too valentino, it is just very small. Maybe it is a child's bracelet.....idk. Thanks for the loves valentino, efes, vetraio, sean, agram, aura, jscott, mikelv.
  3. Man, hotairfan....I am jealous. In fact, I just saw one of these, the guy was asking a little too much. It did not have any decoration like yours. I remember reading somewhere that these were decor...
  4. thanks nicefice! Thanks for the loves nice and budek
  5. thanks jscotto. Can you imagine it being 1860, you are in a tavern drinking a beer. When you pick up your mug to take the next swig you see a frog inside your cup. Maybe this is why so few are ...
  6. thanks for the loves pat, brunswick, jscott, aura, mike, agram, ho2, and vetraio
  7. castiron, I happen to agree now. Spits, as I have learned, are also thinner, and more sharp for piercing a piece of meat. Thanks for correcting me.
  8. found some PD stuff at auction http://www.auctionzip.com/auction-lot/Peter-Derr-Betty-lamp_36C4A95BC8/ http://www.auctionzip.com/auction-lot/Peter-Derr-dough-scraper_D144102BE2/
  9. blunder, you are a comic genius, it is true. Now....you are stuck on top of a mountain with a woman, CW, and a case of beer.....sounds like heaven.
  10. Yeah that is true...I am not sure though, I figured it was hollow so that it wasn't so hot to handle when it was cooking in the hearth.
  11. I am hoping that the wood used to make the spoon in American....otherwise...probably a repro.
  12. this one is so plain, the other are rich in decoration.
  13. so could this one be a tourist item...or an actual New Guinea drum?
  14. tallcakes...well done! to all, thank you a true team effort....with me not being part of the team of course.
  15. blunder, are you really stuck on a mountain.....and why?
  16. lol, love it
  17. I am not sure blunder. Perhaps...I do know that there probably was a top to this piece. But I am happy the way it is.
  18. really....you think so...crazy!
  19. Elisabethan, I am thinking Germany, Spain or Portugal. Not sure.
  20. Thanks efesgirl....the item is Japanese. Thanks for the link Ill check it out.
  21. Thanks jscott and melanie!
  22. thank you lulux for the comment, thanks to melanie for the love!
  23. efesgirl, kerry, vetraio, jscott, mikelv, violet, ho2, and nice thanks for the loves!
  24. love it, beautiful home, beautiful scenery, beautiful day! I live in NJ, it is 70 degrees, balmy, raining and disgusting. Merry Christmas
  25. Just making this today.....I figured everyone should know this recipe....BEST CHICKEN EVER! MERRY CHRISTMAS
  26. no problem man, merry christmas
  27. 1940 census record above...best of luck
  28. http://www.ancestry.com/1940-census/usa/Minnesota/Elmer-Bjorge_3df65m
  29. I would guess that "El" is a nickname for Elmer.....looks like this was his bottle? It is possible
  30. https://apps.library.und.edu/archon/?p=collections/findingaid&id=60&q=&rootcontentid=48668 There is a reference to an "Elmer Bjorge" here
  31. 58321 is the zip for Brocket, ND....???
  32. What did your jade guy end up saying? Just curious.....
  33. ho2cultcha...I really enjoy them too. Amazing....like pointillism. I wonder what the market is like for them now. Probably not that great. I think the guy had a few more in frames, I am going to see...
  34. Thanks to violet, antique, jscott, fort, brunswick, sean and mikelv for the loves
  35. I am always keeping an eye out for one of these...I am yet to find one.
  36. OMG! These are incredibly rare!!! Amazing find. You can find one in Wallace Nuttings books, I have only seen one other so far. Did you get these at auction? Great job..really great job.
  37. do you agree this is a print from 18th century england? Then I will mark it solved.
  38. fyi vetraio, I have been making that bay leaf chicken recipe you taught me years ago. It is delicious, going to make it again for the holidays.
  39. It is very interesting that the fine arts museum of san Francisco also has a copy of the one I have. They too are unsure of the date.
  40. amazing, thank you vetraio for your hard work and help. Have a great day!
  41. Interesting that it is signed by g. white, and r. white. Both are listed as engravers on the society page. It looks like the were father and son: https://books.google.com/books?id=7vn2sxjoRiYC&pg...
  42. vetraio, thanks for the info. Yes, the dimensions are the same as suggested. I am guessing the society is selling copies of the etching, not the original printing. It looks like you can have it mad...
  43. Someone had solved this mystery item, but it looks like the comment is gone. I believe it is a Chinese or Japanese rice mixing bowl???? Does anyone remember exactly what this is? THank you for the ...
  44. Thank you fhrjr2 for clarifying. I was going to suggest a shipbuilding axe based on some other pictures I have seen, but it would have been a guess. I will keep looking for some research sits as you s...
  45. here is another old one with a description calling it a nail puller. https://www.joesalter.com/category/products/Old-Relic-Hatchet
  46. a wild guess....to fit in a belt or a holster? Probably not.....
  47. Hi vetraio, I agree that it was not for heavy use. Perhaps something else was attached at the pointed end? I cannot imagine what is is. It is strange how that wooden piece is attached as well. Than...
  48. thank you racer4, vetraio, blunderbuss, and radegunder for the loves!!!
  49. actually, I remember him saying something about a "prehistoric diorama display," Maybe it is this one..... http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/02/science/so-prehistory-looked-like-new-jersey.html?_r=0
  50. It is a history or an art museum somewhere down south.
