  1. Seems I opened Pandora's box just trying to find out the maker of the door stop. Does the "EM" with the numbers stand for the maker/foundry name, by chance? I have no clue as to what EM might mean as...
  2. Thanks for your clarification. Your eyesight is obviously considerably better than mine. If I read the definition of "contemporary" correctly, this item would have been contemporary as it relates to ...
  3. Very difficult to photo "marks," but I don't think I'm just imagining that there is something there. This image is on back side, center, of the kitty's head. Thanks for your input.
  4. Well, I'm not sure this little Nipper goes that far back, but I do think he is quite old. Definitely an advertising piece. Evidence he was handled quite a bit and well loved. Thanks again.
  5. Thanks, Thomas, for sending the scoop on Nipper. I probably knew the story and that his name was Nipper, but just needed to have my memory refreshed. Do you by chance remember the time period of Nip...
  6. Thanks, will keep your suggestion in mind.
  7. You may be right. I didn't go so far as to check out all the details inside or out since I'm not a car connoisseur; I just think it's a hot little car. Sure would get a lot of eye-balling if I were ...
  8. If you want to do more with them than just look at on paper, they make a beautiful cover material for wooden boxes. Just glue them on, edge-to-edge (fit them together somewhat like a puzzle), then br...
  9. The picture on the left (showing all four quadrants) is definitely Paris. But after enlarging to get a better look, there is one feature in this group that does not seem to jive. The large building ...
  10. Thanks for all the love, folks! Je suis Paris!
  11. Great little box, but don't ever take up a vice such as tobacco to get rid of a tummy. In the long run, you might be ridding yourself of a good pair of lungs. I assume you'd like to have many more y...
  12. Would be nice to know whether or not this old home is still standing today. Unfortunately, the people who conduct estate sales are somewhat closed-mouthed about the reason for the sale and individual...
  13. Thanks, ho2cultcha, for the nice bit of architectural information. I still have no intent to reframe, but might open it up to see if any info written on the back and put back in same frame. It seems...
  14. Wow, how exciting! Roseville was my second guess, but not having a Roseville book, I couldn't check it. Thanks ever so much!
  15. This is a pair of Japanese shears/scissors used in the Japanese style of flower arranging known as Ikebana. Check out amazon.com. Older vintage pairs may possibly be collectible among those doing Ik...
  16. Only my opinion, but ...... Good sterling silver jewelry (or other items of sterling silver) most always has marks on it to identify it as sterling silver. "927" is the number to look for in America...
  17. The Corot artwork may be only a print. If the frame really is very old, it could be made of gesso. (Google "gesso" for info on how to tell for sure.) Only dust it lightly; you don't want to ruin th...

  19. Very collectible, and if they're quite old, very valuable. If you sell, don't let them go for "chickenfeed" prices. Do your homework first and then you should get a fortune for them.
  20. Love this tea pot, primarily because I'm a sucker for this color. I've looked at a lot of pottery, but have never seen a mark like this. My only thought is that it could be a European mark, or at le...
