  1. These are great - can you tell us a little about each of the stamps?
  2. lovely! I think it says "Costo Pisa" - or perhaps another first word...
  3. Perfect - maybe like a John Waters / Beetlejuice post-modern version of Wilma then. ;)
  4. haha yes! Now you need a costume-party excuse to try out her whole look. ;)
  5. Great piece - reminds me of Wilma Flintstone's signature necklace! ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilma_Flintstone
  6. sure thing - they are super cool!
  7. Thanks Sean! (and others for the love)
  8. Cool :) please do!
  9. Love to see the pictures, but once you're selling them, the post has to be removed from this forum (CW doesn't allow any kind of advertisement for sales).
  10. Haha, Manikin - that's the one I bought! I re-stitched the parts you couldn't read because they had faded so much. ;)
  11. p.s. the clipper ship era was actually in the 1850s, so even if 1928 is a correct date, I wonder what the reference to these sailing ships was meant to imply....?
  12. Thanks for your thoughts Mani! I should've photographed the back before sewing it on, but it looked pretty standard for hand-made embroidery (a lot of messy knots and whatnot). :)
  13. p.s. here's a link to the other auction: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Antique-19th-C-SAMPLER-Cross-Stitch-NAUTICAL-CLIPPER-SHIP-Old-Frame/122000973441?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D...
  14. these are pretty common in Mexico - not sure if it's a specific designer or just a general style. I've seen the round ones called "Acapulco Chairs" - http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/quick-history-the-...
  15. someone suggested this was for homing pigeons, but I'm not sure if that's correct since there are no airholes...?
  16. great collection! Is it possible to upload larger images so we can see the individual badges? Right now the pictures don't enlarge...
  17. or maybe Delano ?
  18. How did I miss this ?! I need one. :)
  19. maybe a roach clip? for smoking marijuana. :)
  20. Very cool - looks like some websites call them self-watering stakes or spikes. Do they have holes in the top? https://www.etsy.com/listing/247758580/vintage-ceramic-self-watering-stake
  21. Yeah, I ended up buying black spray paint (made for plastic furniture) that sealed them up nicely so I could use indoors and cover the rust.
  22. thanks NB. ;)
  23. Yeah, he's a keeper. ;) thanks Scott & NevadaBlades.
  24. Seems like having the Emergency Repair book be #13 would have made some people nervous. ;)
  25. yeah, it's pretty genius Brunswick. And looks better than those paper tags put on comforters these days... :)
  26. Yeah, gingerbread sounds right. You should make a batch! :)
  27. Thanks Amatoor :)
  28. If we're talking about the same images - the two side by side in the article - I'm pretty certain they are also recessed.
  29. Hence my childless state - we manage plenty of children here on Show & Tell. ;)
  30. Oh, we are well aware of the heavy dose of insanity BB ;)
  31. thanks BB! :)
  32. There are actually examples of similar figural molds, used to make Tirggel (traditional Swiss Christmas biscuits) in this CW article: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/how-folk-art-challenged-t...
  33. If you're looking to sell them, you can't post them in this forum—the moderators will delete the post.
  34. They look to be engraved printer's blocks advertising films from the 60s (likely for use in newspapers).
  35. can you add a photo or two of the underside? perhaps it was made for sealing something / creasing it / pressing it flat. Almost like a reverse letter-opener. ;)
  36. Good eye, maybe something spun on the top?
  37. gorgeous, I'm amazed the stuff that people put on the curb here! case in point: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/176347
  38. jewelry, hat, or instrument holder (like an oboe?)
  39. haha that's great. :)
  40. how does one win the game?!
  41. Here's some interesting info on Ideal: http://www.sewalot.com/ideal_%20sewing_machines.htm From the art deco styling, I would assume this is a 1920s model.
  42. yeah, vetraio makes a good point about looking for copyright info in the text on the globe. The shape / design suggests an institutional purpose to me (whether a library or a private club or an office...
  43. could've been custom made for a fraternal group or club. something about it reminds me of the old men's clubs...
  44. when hillbillies had style ;-)
  45. Doesn't their pose look reminiscent of a wedding-cake topper? Couple linked by arms walking down the aisle...wonder if this was a gag / grooms' cake thing from way back when. So cool!
  46. I know, Rick - he's the best!
  47. Thanks for the ideas! I still tend to agree with Hems303 that it could just be a stylized heraldic eagle (called an "eagle displayed"), similar to the one seen on the Polish coat of arms here: http:/...
  48. thanks sean, kyra, anna, mani, and kerry! Pretty happy with it. ;)
  49. Thanks Racer4Four - now I'm wondering if CW needs more Soviet / Russian categories.... :)
  50. thanks Peasejean! And all for the loves. <3
