  1. I have something similar. With that long handle I would think it is a tool for turning wood on a lathe.
  2. TubeAmp, I hear what you are saying...and it is true. This piece actually came from a collector of American Folk Art in northern NJ. I spoke with him a lot about the piece and he was, in fact, quite...
  3. not quite sure where we are headed here tube....u think I just bought this in a "shop"?
  4. lol...tube amp...a fake as usual.
  5. Nichols and Stone. http://nicholsandstone.com/
  6. cant say how much it is worth because the pictures are hard to see. I can tell you that if it is entirely original you got a good deal. Looks to have some age to it based on the dovetails in picture...
  7. Oh yes, nice find! I have one myself ticking away on the wall to my right. These time clocks are great if they are in good shape, working, and all original. Looks like yours meets all three criteri...
  8. This is called a Lincoln rocker. If you google it you will find some more.
  9. i believe they call this "chicken wire"
  10. Totally unique as usual thanks for sharing stillwater.
  11. interesting corner cabinet with an almost mission-like feel to it. I am pretty stumped but I enjoy the glass pulls. Is it oak or walnut? someone should be able to help you based on the dovetails.....
  12. looks like one of the knobs is a replacement? I can't really tell...i love the bulbous feet on this dresser. Really nice piece, would love to see some better photos.
  13. how about the back of the piece? I would like to the pieces that make up the back.
  14. google "eastlake style rocking chair", you will find many similar.
  15. i made one a few years back...not nearly as nice as yours. i actually enjoyed doing it, my was from a quarter.
  16. Awesome piece.
  17. hey sean, whats up? thanks man. I live in a pretty good area...central nj. not the best for antiques but still quite good. Lately I have been going to some different places....not many good estate...
  18. a few other things that I may not have added. The person I bought this from claimed, the key word is claimed, that he had it in his collection for thirty years. Next, even if this is faked, or made...

  20. TubeAmp, I agree that it does have a very Asian feel to it. I wouldn't be entire ly shocked if what you are saying is correct. katherines....if you were to hold this piece you would understand why...
  21. In the description I mentioned that there is a second box. It turns out that ones is a pivot top. I will post some pictures tomorrow. Fhrjr u seem to think this is a pa and American?
  22. thanks budek manikin zowie walksoftly mike racer agh and violet for the loves!
  23. cogito, yes, I remember you commented awhile back on something else that I found, very similar to the carvings on this box. You had given the same advice, and that is a great place to start. I also ...
  24. thanks racer! fort, mikelv, vetraio, racer, agh, and ho2 thanks for the loves!!!
  25. yes! Stillwater, nice to see you back again man. Hope all is well, later!
  26. sean and mikelv thanks for the loves
  27. thank you agram for the advice. Do you have a link or contact? Have a great day!!!
  28. thanks agh for the love!
  29. hi antiquerose, thanks for the comment and the love! Yeah, I am not sure if there is any value here....to be honest, I initially grabbed them because I though the leather bound would look cool on a b...
  30. hotairfan, thanks for the comment! I am kind of at a dead end with the research. I am thinking of taking a trip to Smithtown to do some local research. Take care!
  31. zowie, thank you for the kind words... hotairfan, yeah, these are very very very hard to come by. This is the only one I have seen in person, but I am sure they are "findable"
  32. I am thinking these are over 100 years old. That is a pretty sophisticated repair for a contemporary item.

  36. fhr....you have any opinion on the table i posted? Talk to you later.
  37. Manikin thanks for the comment!
  38. Hey fhr...yeah i guess it could be later but the wear on the front stretcher is incredible. I just have seen ones with similar finials, with about the same wear dated in that range.
  39. hotairfan, yes I agree, only the trammels made for more wealthy people were decorated like this thus making them more rare. Thanks Roycroft!!!
  40. thanks budek!
  41. sergey thanks for the compliment! ho2cultcha, I am not sure about a tavern piece, I think it is a typical blanket chest, about the hinges, they are right for that time period. Truly amazing how I fo...
  42. its basically the same shape as the one i use to carve bowls. But mine is modern and curved, I think yours is flat. You get used to it after awhile, but you want to try to strike with the back of the...
  43. thank you sergey agram inky vetraio ho2 mikelv fortapache and agh for the loves! inky I agree, no matter what anyone else says....this stays as is!

  48. fhr, thank you for taking the time to give your opinion. I put out an email to Smithtown's Historical Society to see if they have any information on the Phillips family. Who knows, it is worth a sho...
  49. In addition I came across this book: https://books.google.com/books?id=-B2DAoCLbdoC&pg=PA460&lpg=PA460&dq=samuel+phillips+sarah+mills&source=bl&ots=ksxl_3V5Y3&sig=ucPt88-78xRtB8iu7U4KZ8khVjo&hl=en...
