  1. There's a little info on the Rootstein company in this CW article: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/what-mannequins-say-about-us/ YOu might try reaching out to ChadMichael Morrisette, whose c...
  2. Hi PP: Would you be interested in doing an interview on your collection for CollectorsWeekly? If so, shoot me an email at hunter@collectorsweekly.com. :)
  3. Sure thing - glad y'all enjoyed it. :) Hand-painted signs are the best; I'm glad they're making a comeback.
  4. Love this stuff! Have you read the CW article about sign painting? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/artisanal-advertising/
  5. Great chair groveland! With the patented duplex spring rocker, too. And thanks for reading. :)
  6. Mid century seems right to me. I believe the mark is for Reichenbach Porcelain, and here's a stock photo with the date marked as 1964: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-household-dishes-mocca-set-fatim...
  7. I've used a kintsugi kit on broken mugs and plates before, but I'm not sure I would use it on something so old (I'd be worried it would damage the clay and destroy its integrity/value). But for future...
  8. it looks like a shaving brush to me - is the "hair" part soft bristles or solid? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/accessories/shaving-mugs-and-brushes
  9. I think this might be a Hunzinger chair - see more here: http://hunzinger.blogspot.com/ You'll have to upload some clearer photos from all sides and underneath for us to get a good look at it.
  10. appears to be an easel.
  11. Thanks for the comment Thomas—I think some of my family also had them in the 1980s. Trying to figure out the best matching table that won't look too dated...
  12. thanks sean :)
  13. hahaha, that's great antiquerose! Do you remember this flower art circa 1995? -----<----@
  14. Thanks Sean! Happy V-Day everyone. <3
  15. thanks alwayssearching! :)
  16. That makes sense. :)
  17. Hi nvineyar, if you are using images from your phone sometimes they will need to be re-oriented on a desktop computer and saved before uploading...I've fixed it for you this time. :)
  18. Definitely appears to be of the pomander variety (for holding scents). Any idea what era this is from?
  19. cooking / serving? great piece!
  20. Thanks Vetraio! Same to you down under. :)
  21. haha sorry Rob - I'm on vacation time already. ;) happy holidays! And thanks for checking out the item.
  22. Aha, well glad you figured it out. :)
  23. ralph niederman is the resident camera expert - hopefully he will see this and have some idea...
  24. Reminds me of the ornate cigarette cases popular around the turn of the century. here's one I picked up: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/47089-silver-cigarette-case
  25. Lovely lamp Cindy! To fix sideways images (which are usually a result of using a phone), you can open them on a desktop computer, rotate the correct direction, and save / upload them anew. Let me kno...
  26. What are its dimensions? recently saw some very similar pieces from the 1910s-1930s that were built for cruise ship cabins / college dormitories. There are a few photos in the slideshow here (pics 12...
  27. Also, I just looked closely, and all the items on that oldest page were posted by employees at the time. ;-)
  28. Interesting question antiquerose: Manikin is correct that some of the earliest posts have been deleted, but since each unique S&T is assigned a number, you can scroll through the earliest items that a...
  29. I'm curious why you didn't want him to get a ticket (regardless of whether he seemed to be a "nice guy") ? I ride a bike to commute in California, and the cops here have to be pushed to actually cite...
  30. so coo! No writing or labeling anywhere?
  31. This article will likely provide some answers: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/gloriously-grotesque-19th-century-pipes/
  32. or toast?! very cool. :)
  33. haha thanks Mani! :)
  34. My first thought was a font for Holy water, perhaps from a Catholic church or facility—though in that case, it would be surprising there are no religious symbols on it.
  35. Thanks all for the kind words! I'll pass your compliments on to my Dad - he's got a good eye. Lucky I got those picking-skills via genetics... ;)
  36. Thanks NB! And yes, Thomas, it definitely seems to reference classical architecture with that column-style base (the bottom two steps are made from wood I believe, while the rest is ceramic).
  37. Thanks Thomas! It's definitely a very unique style / shape. :)
  38. Hey, I actually have a color version print of the image on the left. Very sci-fi. I wonder who did the originally artwork/painting and whether it was commissioned by the military or what?
  39. This piece at Christie's looks quite similar: http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/a-chinese-famille-verte-biscuit-puzzle-teapot-5109970-details.aspx
  40. Wow, amazing!
  41. Beautiful! What era is this from?
  42. Sounds like Ken was quite the high roller! How convenient that Allan was exactly the same size. ;)
  43. They do look sorta similar, huh Rose? But I think your guy might be 70s/80s-era. Thanks for looking!
  44. haha, well at least you can wear the jewelry Bonnie!
  45. Thanks Mani & Bonnie! The Mattel slogan came straight from the youtube video - it's hilarious. :)
  46. They look very 90s—and ties from that period are not increasing in value at the moment. Love the seashells :)
  47. The size and shape made me think of ink bottles: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/bottles/ink-bottles
  48. Agree with Tassie Devil - reminds me of a samovar (albeit with the spigot hidden or turned away).
  49. These are great - can you tell us a little about each of the stamps?
  50. lovely! I think it says "Costo Pisa" - or perhaps another first word...
