  1. I don't know what it is or was used for. I believe the cotton was added more recently by my daughter who put some perfume on it.
  2. Thanks so much for the info. Now I have actually found others like it.
  3. Same kind of stone as on your watch...is it glass (blue stone) or do you know what it may be?
  4. I have several like this one also...none of them are running and didn't know if I should take them to be cleaned or just leave them. What is the stone that was used?
  5. Thanks Phil...found another like it on Ebay..looks the same as one for sale advertised as a Packard flying swan from 1959. Also found the model # inside mine: 151310 and CB 22052 44874. Not sure wha...
  6. Thanks for all your information..I will continue researching the links you suggested.
  7. Yes...I have used a flashlight, but the only label inside is from : Repairs by R.A. Cota, Lewiston, Maine, 1924
  8. I have a couple like it, too. For years, I used one on my kitchen stove (wood)- just to put steam in the air. Mine was not rusty inside.
  9. Wow...what a great collection!!!
  10. Thanks...I was away all winter and am now just getting back into this site..love it...Thanks for sharing and I will go and research the links again.
  11. Oh yes...I still have it...or I should say, my husband does.
  12. Do you know what they would have used this item for?
  13. I just noticed there is an initial on the bottom...looks like a "K" in an larger oval ..with possibly an R on left and 0o on right inside oval....any ideas what that stamp is???? Wish I new some his...
  14. Thank-you..upon researching more, I thought it was a bookend. Will need to research more now and find out more info. There are no holes on back to attach to the wall...will have to check that out.
  15. Perfect...I found them.
  16. Could be with a plug in bottom...thank-you
  17. DOn't think toothpicks would work..slit in the back is too small to reach in. Thanks for the thought/idea...anyone else?????
  18. Similar, but not the same..I don't think it's 200 years old either...will have to keep searching. Thanks
  19. I am saddened that no one knows anything about this watch.
  20. No markings at all. It MUST have some meaning ...
  21. Thanks- Very interesting - wonder whatever happened to the Donald Duck watch???? Will have to find some one who needs the D.D. box to go with their boxless watch.
  22. Thank-you for all the info....
  23. I believe it's a plant stand, too...put it in your front hall with a big bowl to collect gloves, mittens, keys etc....
  24. Might have been used on the door of a store..to push open the door .Screwed on..then could be changed
  25. For popouri..dried flowers to scent the air...justr a guess, but that's what I'd do with it. I think it would be too short for flowers..they woud be too top heavy
  26. Thanks-I'll keep searching for info.
  27. Have rechecked the hallmars- definetly Albert Coles. Thanks for all the info.
  28. App. 15" tall and 5" across. We are from Maine, but not sure where my Mom had found it.
  29. All the photos are the same piece...think it was meant to take the inner cover off- put the top cover on and the aroma of whatever was in the jar would permeate the room...then put the two cover s bac...
  30. Thanks for all the info. I don't think she ever had a train set, but a nephew did...I treaure them and think they are fun to have.
  31. Do they have any value now?
  32. Thanks bags...I watched the utube video and checked the website from Chinablue...I will mark as solved. Thanks for everyones help!
  33. Thanks..I love this site!!!! So glad I came upon it. Everyone is so helpful ~~as I learn each day!
  34. Thanks.....Ewwwww....so the leaves or "poison" were stored in this jar in a Dr. office - possibly??? I'll research it further now.
  35. Chinablue...Wow..thanks so much for your love and all the info. I do believe that that is what my Dad was referring to. He also had a huge old fire bell (which he sold) .He had found them both in a...
  36. Beautiful...I,too am trying to find out more about crackle glass. I have glasses posted.
  37. Love it...I have a pin that is similiar...will post it tomorrow as I would love to know something about it, too
  38. Thanks for your love...Have either of your seen any like these before? Wonder where they came from and value. I would love a little more info on them.
  39. Looks like something my husband would make to add to our "yard art"...I would put a large petunia plant in it ;-)
  40. Not sure- I believe it is wood...hard though and it has a crack in it.
  41. Ahhhhh...now that makes sence. The fancy handle made me think it would be used as some piece of serving tool. Thanks for your input. I have iton my kitchen window and is always a real conversation ...
  42. Looks like a meat tenderizer to me, too
  43. Looks like malicite- green stone..if it is 925- it is sterling
  44. I have a similiar one, but it has no markings. Do you know it's value?
  45. See more
