  1. It appears to be written in fountain pen ink (rather than ballpoint) and it is most definitely by an adult hand. Thank you for the information on her. I just love her. I will take some photos of her u...
  2. Hi chinaheads. Thank you so much. I adore her! 1862 is written in ink on her torso. She came from the Jean Hess collection as did the other doll I recently included on here.

  7. Thank you, bradenava1. Thanks so much for the love, kyratango, fortapache, TassieDevil, and racer4four.
  8. These are really, really precious and wonderful! The letter is on its way to obsolescence, I am afraid. Nowadays, kids aren't even required to write in cursive in school. My 14 year-old knows how to w...
  9. Thank you so much, mareredware. I appreciate it!
  10. Thank you so much, Manikin. Much appreciated. Thank you for the love, Lisa.
  11. Thank you, Manikin! I agree; it is amazing how well they held up. She is 20 inches in height. I love the big ones, too!
  12. Racer4four, I'll bet you have some artistic talent hidden somewhere. You just need the right medium to bring it forth. ;)
  13. Thank you so much, chinaheads! Much appreciated!
  14. Thanks for the love, brunswick and SEAN68.
  15. Thanks so much, rockbat, Manikin and SEAN68. Much appreciated.
  16. Bobby and blunderbuss, I also contacted the Mid-West Tool Collectors Association. I know this is probably not a tool, but they have a neat website that has a collection of interesting items where the...

  20. Thank you for the love, brunswick, fortapache and fleafinder. Much appreciated!
  21. Lsmouz, it does look like it could be a finial of sorts, just by virtue of its shape; however, the holes and depressions are very curious and don't seem to be purely decorative. The piece is not terri...
  22. The circular depressions (I changed "holes" to "depressions" in the description since they don't go all the way through and are only indentions or depressions.) are in the same spot on all four sides....
  23. Blunderbuss2, I was thinking that as well. The round depressions at the bottom of each side must mean something, right? Bobby, there is no metal around the bottom hole. It's just smoothed wood. Th...
  24. Very true, Bobby.
  25. Thanks for the love, Caperkid. Any ideas???
  26. Bobby, it is straight. No notches or grooves. There appears to be a carved block inside and the outside is comprised of panels covering the inside block. If I drop a bead into the top hole, it runs ou...
  27. Thanks, blunderbuss2. I am as well!!! I'm so curious!
  28. Thanks, bobby725. Any guesses as to what this might be?
