  10. BB2 I had never heard of the words "Proof Marks" used for revolvers/guns. It's a learning adventure here on CW. Is ammo for 8mm guns like this still being made/available. With a short barrel like this...
  11. I looked up "Revolver Francais" after Dave suggested it could be French and Voila, the same revolver is dispayed in a Wikepedia page but with a "Bakelite" handle made in 1890. It is described as a 8mm...
  12. Thanks Dave! The upper symbol looks like a waving Bear or animal and then there is a clear 5-point star and a letter under the star that could be an A. There is a safety latch on one side. It certainl...
  13. Something possibly used in Hospitals but the "splashing" would be prohibitive.....lol Actually a kitchen setting use makes more sense. RER

  23. I was told by an "expert" in these old French/French Canadian pedestalled crosses that the method to date them is by looking at the feet of Christ. With early crosses, the feet are side by side and ea...
  24. Beautiful enamelling! I would have also thought Legras first, so my "kindred spirit" has been awakened by this Beauty!! RER
  25. I think you mean an "opalescent effect glass". Pretty vase and not modern at all with that type of crimping. RER
  26. Thanks SEAN my loyal friend!! RER
  27. It's an "Authentic" piece of pottery. Is it old? ......looks too pristine. Something original to the era that it represents would be scuffed, dirty, stained and possibly damaged to a certain degree. I...

  39. I think I know why they sold these lamps......only one bulb on each of the lamps was still lighting; all others were burnt. lol .... I added a photo with the lamps without bulbs and I wonder what type...
