  1. Racer4four, I'll bet you have some artistic talent hidden somewhere. You just need the right medium to bring it forth. ;)

  4. Thanks so much, rockbat, Manikin and SEAN68. Much appreciated.
  5. 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...

  9. Thank you for the love, brunswick, fortapache and fleafinder. Much appreciated!
  10. 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...
  11. 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....
  12. 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...
  13. Very true, Bobby.
  14. Thanks for the love, Caperkid. Any ideas???
  15. 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...
  16. Thanks, blunderbuss2. I am as well!!! I'm so curious!
  17. Thanks, bobby725. Any guesses as to what this might be?

  46. Thank you, martika!
  47. The tin is wonderful. Cumilous Cloud is adorable! The tin looks as if it was maybe a sweets tin, and I believe the script is Hindi.
  48. She is wonderful!
  49. Judy, what kind of clasp does it have? That may give a clue as to the piece's age. It looks like a barrel clasp to me, perhaps. That would place this necklace at approximately the turn of the 20th cen...
  50. These are lovely pieces. I especially like the floral design on the side of the ring.
