  1. Where we went parking it was free. Sorry, I couldn't resist saying that.
  2. Probably made 1953 or earlier. I have only one left that was brought to the USA from Mexico during the Korean war. Memory fails me but they were made on an island off Mexico. The one I have left I cal...
  3. I will give my 2 cents for thought. You might want to consider whether it was the actual finishing touch as the top piece for an actual gazebo. It may have been purchased to use on the top of a gazebo...
  4. I was able to find an archive on the company models for 1935 - 36. Your model number was not listed. About all I learned that I felt was useful is the "W". They made coal, wood and gas fueled stoves. ...
  5. You probably can't find any info on this as far as maker. They were mass produced and sold to flower shops. I can tell you I saw many of them during the 1960's. I worked for a florist back then and t...
  6. Looks like a light house at the end of a jetty.
  7. Probably Vulcan, they are out of Romania and make vulcanizes for a number of applications. Back in the days of tires with inner tubes every garage had a vulcanizer.
  8. If your dad was a bird lover, obviously he was. It didn't matter the species of the statue, all that mattered is that it was a bird and you cared enough to give it to him. Your dad and my dad were qui...
  9. Tahiti1 - I only breed parrots but I am familiar with other species and this one struck me as a Cockatoo. Probably a female signaling a male, NOT NOW, I HAVE A HEADACHE! They will fold their tail down...
  10. Your bird has a large crown on his head and a tail with somewhat of a downward bend. Check images of a cockatoo.
  11. I would say the insignia is an attempt at the Great Seal also known as the Coat of Arms of the United States.
  12. PoliticalPinbacks Yes, they were called Jesus clips at one point. I forgot that but you are 100% right.
  13. Blunder, you young pups never heard lots of things. That is why you are here live and learn.
  14. slackjack a lay shaft is in a gear box. This is better called a counter shaft because of where it mounts and the fact that gears don't drive it, pullies drive it indirectly from the power source using...
  15. No sir they were a bitch to get off until the tool to remove them was invented. The name stuck. They are now called snap rings but in the day they were a bitch to get off. Back then there were no loop...
  16. Those are called shaft pullyies or counter shaft pullies. They are fairly old and if you ever intend using them or selling them for use, do your homework before you start taking them apart. Take my wo...
  17. Here is a similar model from Europe. http://www.ebay.ie/itm/vintage-Chas-Morrill-Apex-TOOL-WITH-KETCHEM-EAR-TAGS-TAMPER-PROOF-/172615666495?hash=item2830b20b3f:g:BNEAAOSw2gxY1Sqg
  18. That is dairy farm related. It is for putting metal tags on the cows ear.
  19. The blue stamp may reflect the issue date of the stamp and have nothing to do with the item it is on except for tax. HUB Tobacco company is is located in Fenton, MO
  20. When you have it cleaned the jeweler will be able to identify it.
  21. Everything in life comes with risks. Even walking across the street. I have been crossing streets almost 70 years and I always look both ways. I get to the curb and I look up and I look down. I looked...
  22. This is one of hundreds of items made to sell to his fan club and followers. You will find them mostly for sale in Europe. El General Primavera - Verano
  23. I'm not a big fan of jewelry but sorting and researching none the less.
  24. I finally got to the bottom of my search on this item. It was made in 1882 and had Gorham works. It was called a convertible watch because it could be worn as a pendant, pocket watch or wrist watch wi...
  25. SpiritBear, your mother may have been wiser than you thought. Perhaps she told you right then to give you something to think about other than current issues bothering you. Just maybe she was trying to...
  26. I never happened to see this called a corner chair. I wonder where in your research you found that? I enjoy chairs and I am here to learn like everyone else. I have only seen them called a courting ch...
  27. I may be able to give you some help in your research. I believe this may actually have been produced by the Goodell Works in Antrim, NH. At one time they had six or eight mills in and around the Great...
  28. Yes I do blunder. That happens when you get four days older than dirt. I am getting where I can type again and see out of both eyes, so beware.
  29. Yes I have an idea because I have one sitting here that belonged to my mother in law. They are called by two names, skirt clip and scarf clip. Mine has the same clasp and is also marked West Germany. ...
  30. PS: I'm not a pro but I do know what President is on the money I spend.
  31. That is not Ike. That is a Roosevelt dime and I see no flaw.
  32. I just unearthed a couple trifari broaches and some Monet today that belonged to my mother in law years ago when she taught school. She is gone now for 30 plus years but left some neat stuff behind.
  33. packer hit it. Ours were one gallon back when I grew up and had to keep the stoves running. Only kerosene stoves back then but they kept us warm.
  34. I have a couple of similar items. They were produced to be sold for fund raising. Any tax free association bought them to resell to raise funds. Not valuable but unusual.
  35. I think there was a company called poole communications (not sure) I think they developed a solenoid or capacitor or similar thing. I am not at all sure and seem to think I heard of them 50 years ago ...
  36. The Medal of Honor Society has nothing to do with the U.S. government. They sold these lighters to raise money.
  37. Beautiful. That is where I went wrong. I wasn't a decorator. I am learning by the minute. I hope you keep teaching us. I am interested in the joinery mostly if you care to elaborate. Butcher shop or c...
  38. It looks like someone took it to a bench grinder with a wire brush. I assure you WWI sheath has nothing to do with this. Not even close within decades.
  39. I think scottvez was most generous with his date. Feeble attempt at producing a harp chair.
  40. Hahaha! Glad you gave it a test run. I hadn't seen one since the late 1950's but knew right away what it was.
  41. My most logical question is, How do you know it is an arrow head if you don't know what it was used for? Forgive me but I am trying to learn here on odd items and how people know or assume what t...
  42. Research it as a "compote". Looks to be EAPG. I have one similar made in 1889 by Thompson glass. Someone on here will bail you out.
  43. I would agree with SpiritBear. Looks like it probably had a cork stopper. I have one the same except the bottom of mine has no flat spot on the bottom, it is round/oval and has a tin screw on top. Min...
  44. You show nothing worth seeing except picture #2. Someone modified this, which is OK if you like it. You show no construction or joinery except picture #2. Very clear pegs. Had it been left original on...
  45. I would say it is a hat pin or stick pin. I have a couple from the late 1800's that are cameo and rose designs. They normally have a gold color plug that goes over the pointed end.
  46. You are 100% right about the acid test. It is simply a starting point and the same point the jeweler would begin with. I suspect if a jeweler examined this ring he would hand it back without testing i...

  48. The chair isn't super old but certainly an antique. What makes this chair unusual is the image in the crest board. I am four days older than dirt and have bought and sold chairs a good part of my life...
  49. Buy a precious metal test kit on Amazon for $12 and you can test it in two minutes. It looks like plated costume jewelry from the 50's & 6o's. If you intend collecting this type stuff the test kit wil...
  50. Yes these are for a power auger (commercial grade) like ROTO Rooter) spade bits, cutters and a retriever. Not old but would clean lines from 1 1/4" up to 4". They look old because of the rust. They ar...
