  5. Modeled after this: http://www.greeceancientmodern.com/porchofmaidens.html Most likely resins and marble dust. T A
  6. Roses in this style were used in Heraldry in Great Britain and Germany, as well as other lands for thousands of years. An example: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_(heraldry) Gothic or Tudor ...
  7. Just a possible minor correction, it is not cedar, but camphor wood, used in Asia for the same reason as cedar. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/0a/8f/7e/0a8f7efef0763f8ef958639db59b9375.j...
  8. It's lovely! Enjoy it when you take it off the bench. T A
  9. Here is an example showing the engraving still done today: http://www.hilocalhawaiian.com/u_file/pro/2012/10_03/2012100305210694080.jpg Purely for stylistical assessment. T A
  10. The engraving being a matter of taste, one can pay more and have the plain piece embellished. The originals were English mourning jewelry as worn by Queen Victoria as seen by the King and Queen of Haw...
  11. Always a pleasure Shareurpassion, nice to see you too. T A
  12. http://www.hawaiigoldjewelry.com/dimages/06683/m0895.jpg Perhaps... T A

  18. I think you are correct. In this style: http://www.artfire.com/uploads/product/6/56/89056/5889056/5889056/large/dyrberg_kern_denmark_stretch_bracelet_bold_black_plastic_ovals_pre-own_51885ae3.jpg ...
  19. Suet blocks are most welcomed by the Woody's. T A
  20. Here you go: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Wave_off_Kanagawa T A
  21. And I appreciate that you are open minded. Some people get bent out of shape when having a discussion about their piece. Colonialism may also play a part. Local woodworkers are shown a photo and as...
  22. Just my take:No doubt the accents are hand carved. But they show signs of being rushed, as in production line pieces, not an old world craftspeople. The top, most likely wasn't even made in the cou...
  23. You're welcome Auto12. T A
  24. Similar style pipe in action: http://youtu.be/ui442IDw16o T A
  25. German pipe. T A
  26. I hope Phil sees this table and comments. He has a keen eye and a wealth of experience and knowledge with furnishings and their histories. You're very welcome Scott, T A
  27. There is an awkwardness to the piece and the structure wood looks like something from Asia. Here is a 1950's piece (no not exactly the same but it has some of the same design points that I find stylis...
  28. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/5th_Armored_Division_%28United_States%29 T A
  29. It's a monogram -- not a crest or a cypher. T A
  30. You're very welcome Lindapat and welcome to CW! T A
  31. Really has a pewter color to me and the mark just maybe the copyright symbol. T A
  32. It looks like a bottle stopper, missing the cork ring that formed a seal. https://img0.etsystatic.com/023/0/7737977/il_340x270.576037740_33yp.jpg T A
  33. A Walter Tschinkel original. T A
  34. The Japanese version, a Kendama, was very popular this past Christmas. T A
  35. Just to give you an idea: http://www.enjoyingtea.com/bldrcairte2.html?utm_source=shopzilla&utm_medium=ppc T A
  36. Buttons that copied coins were popular and considered patriotic with individuals in the military for their coats. T A
  37. My pleasure. Thanks for sharing. T A
  38. http://portroyal200.com/view.php?id=819 http://portroyal200.com/site/userfiles/image-3666-1m.jpg T A
  39. Thank you. So, as I said, the design was originally a coin, http://www.ma-shops.com/zufahl/item_print.php5?id=2657&lang=en&curr=USDEUR&save=1 This was molded from a coin and cast as a button. Lo...
  40. I think most of the real guns were made with steel springs. If it was golden color, it was washed in pure gold, not brass. T A
  41. Please, thank you. T A
  42. Put it on a gram scale. Dime Standard weight 2.268 grams Quarter Standard weight 5.670 grams T A
  43. http://www.gunauction.com/buy/10367137# T A
  44. The wood looks tropical, it could be a parade piece. Also doesn't look that old to me. Like BB said, primitively cast brass isn't gun spring material. No way it's pre 16th century, sorry. T A
  45. Lol! AK, I meant CW. Again welcome, T A
  46. Hello CarolynB: May we please see the reverse? It looks a lot like 1 Kreutzer coins from HRE/German states at the time. Welcome to AK, T A
  47. I'm reminded of a thinning/texturizing razor, https://www.etsy.com/listing/79448260/vintage-playtex-hair-cutter-razor The pin is removed and a blade slides in. But that block of wood; I think the bl...
  48. It's not really the same Co. any longer, just a name. Historians and archivists are the first to go after being sold, most likely the call center will have no past product information available to the...
  49. It could have been "gold" the coating worn with time. T A
  50. Perhaps because it was part of their uniform. T A
