  6. Thank you kyratango, SEAN68, fortapache, mikelv85, aghcollect and vetraio50 for the love. I was able to find one tidbit of Albieri also being a painter in Askart.com but you have to be a member to get...
  7. The painting is 5 1/4" by 4" Oval-shaped. The varnish is on the painting and is evident on the photo showing the signature. I will upload a close-up of St. Anthony's face instead of Jesus since my pho...
  8. Origin....Hong Kong maybe, Age....... 1960-70's....Usefulness and look......priceless!!

  13. Hello earl99 and Sportsref! I think I may have partially solved your enigma on this "bronze" lamp. I found information in my bookends ref. book that shows this seated "KNOWLEDGE" figure in bookends fo...
  14. I still like the first suggested use. I have visions in my mind.......... whoosh!!.....lol
  15. Thank you frisco for the hard work that certainly paid off. The crest and photos do attest to it being the "isle yacht club" logo. The location it was found confirms being from this yacht club. I had ...
  16. Thanks Rick55 for the comments and love and thank you racer4four, katherinescollections, Manikin, LuluX, kivatinitz and inky for the loves. BOB
  17. Thanks Rick55 for the comments and love and thank you Newtimes for the love. RER(BOB)
  18. My wife dug out Valentino97's recommended book source of info. from storage and that's where I found a photo on page 157 of C. Jeanenne Bell 's " Answers to Questions About Old Jewelry- 1840 to 1950"...
  19. Thank you valentino97 and aghcollect for this information. There are no other marks on this bracelet but it is quite small so certainly could be a Child's Bracelet and from the 1940's. Thank you for t...
  20. Thanks racer4four for the comments and Moonstonelover21, aghcollect, sharer passion, vetraio50, EAPGDepression, Mac63 and mikelv85 for the loves. RER(Bob)

  22. Nice lamp! You don't come across these lamps too often, especially the Dayton ones. RER
  23. Other than for the purple/amethyst colour and shape, we can't make out the designs on the bottle which would help identify it. Is there a plastic liner on the stopper end or is the stopper very loose ...
  24. Thanks scottvez for your input. BOB
  25. I'm still trying to find information on this Navy or Coast Guard hat. Any ideas anyone? RER (bob)
  26. We don't usually give values of items here on CW. Your lamp is a later pattern lamp made in the 1910-1940's era. It was machine made in one piece (glass) and is a relatively common lamp. With lamp oil...
  27. I don't think you can "Fake" true yellow Vaseline glass for obvious reasons but reproductions of pressed glass patterns is commonplace. These quite interesting vases have a "Bleached" look to them. I ...
  28. Thanks everyone! I was looking for Parakeets Vase and nothing like this was showing up. That certainly is the one. Love birds is certainly appropriate for this vase. Appreciate your input aghcollect a...
  29. Nice Stuff! Are the dealers conjoined twins..lol RER(BOB)
  30. "Banner" was a Brand Name for oil lamp burners introduced by the Plume & Atwood Manufacturing Company of Waterbury Conn. and even if it is on this lamp now, may not have been when this lamp was sold. ...

  33. Thanks kivatinitz! I know that there are plugs/wads that keep the contents from falling out when shells are crimped but how would you keep the perfume from dripping out since it is inserted sideways i...
  34. Hi Anne! You don't mention the size. We have the same plate in an 8" size. In the clear area in the middle of the plate in raised letters is "Made in England". Nice green color on these plates. RER(BOB)
  35. Thanks frisco! In the first photo, the bolt slide holder is down and is held down by the leather cover that is flared-out. I think that the leather was made that way to catch the bolt handle. Yes. the...
  36. I thought it would be too small for a shotgun shell but I suppose that it would accommodate a 410 shell. Not being a fervent hunter, I had never seen one of these. The fellow that sold it stated it wa...
  37. Thank you vetraio50 & Rick55 for the comments and love and thanks aghcollect, SEAN68, racer4four, mikelv85, glasslove, lisaround2, walksoftly, fortapache and GeodeGem for the love. RER(BOB)

  41. "Lambert" (le bon sirop Lambert)...... drank a lot of that good tasting Cough Syrup growing up and what is more french than "Veilleux"! My French Acadian last name is Richard. BOB
  42. Your figural lamp was in the BRADLEY & HUBBARD MFG. CO. of Meriden CONN. catalog of 1883-1884 and was not given a name but was numbered #6100B. They came with the opportunity of choosing the Font (oil...

  46. Hi ho2cultcha! The actual name in French of these low ottomans is "POUF". Being French Canadian, my Grandma had many of these in her house. It may have been converted to POOF elsewhere but here it's a...
  47. Nice Knuckle Bowl! The design (millefiori) is different from one that I uploaded last year but the treatment is quite similar. RER(BOB) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/101335-another-knuckle-...
