  1. Prices seem about even on any site. I searched on UK sites because of the suspected origin of the wood used. I also read that these were also used to stamp/press cookie dough so they seem to have ...
  2. I typed that backward, the palm wood would normally be heavier depending on the species.
  3. Anything is possible but I said mahogany because I have mahogany from Honduras and south America that finishes the same in it's natural state with a clear finish polish. Palm wood should have a lower ...
  4. I agree with Scottvez but try finding ones that have sold. You might have better luck on a site that only people who collect butter related items post.
  5. Interesting piece. Difficult to tell the maker and a bit unusual because of the knee buster center shelf. Looks like a triple wing mirror. I use the term wing because it appears the smaller left and r...
  6. Sit down before you look at the asking price on this link I just found. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COLLECTION-OF-4-ANTIQUE-PRIMITIVE-WOODEN-LOLLIPOP-BUTTER-STAMPS-RARE-/171750418860?pt=LH_Defaul...
  7. I believe that is called a lollipop butter press and is probably British.
  8. PS: The wooden base appears to be polished mahogany which would fit in with the same region.
  9. You will not scratch Tagua with your fingernail. It grows along the Amazon River and is the closest thing in the world to ivory. I have 8 or 10 left in my shop as we used to turn Tagua on our lathes.
  10. You don't show the back of the drawer, the locks or the hooks and you expect someone to know? Give me a puff of what you are smoking.
  11. You didn't provide any dimensions and looking at it I wonder if you know how big antlers and bones are? Can we see the underside and get the length and width?
  12. I didn't dig terribly deep on the names but I did find a Samuel that was a trunk and box maker. He had a patent along with another fellow (Hough I think) for a special design trunk latch. I believe th...
  13. RobH is correct
  14. You have my sincerest respect. I have done these carvings and I know how difficult it is. I screwed up a good many of them. Thanks for sharing yours.
  15. I used to send the wrappers in during the mid and late 1950's. Mr. Peanut was a status symbol back then.
  16. BHock you are a problem child sometimes. I would give this a date between 1790 through around 1830ish. I would guess made in Schoharie, NY from the pictures. I call this a naked chest because most you...
  17. Probably a Murphy desk bed from around 1890's.
  18. TallCakes hit the nail on the head. I used to buy them and take them apart and put a mirror on the back. Fun and inexpensive items to play with.
  19. Poor kids here still play marbles and dominoes. Better off kids have parents that buy them off with a computer or other game system. Taking a walk and seeing kids playing marbles is a fun thing. The k...
  20. I love the post for the Groucho pin. I suspect very few people here know the name or watched him live on TV. His show was so bad they put him on late night. But people watched it (including me). Jack ...
  21. You can find them online. Don't give up your day job waiting for a payoff. Most coin sites show both real and reproductions.
  22. Did I understand correctly that these have been in a box for 30 years unopened?
  23. Good looking group you have there. We have three parrots, a sun conure, a cockatiel and a pigeon. Half of them are rescued birds but we love them all. They do make noise so it is good we aren't in an ...
  24. This has oodles of potential. We can't see inside and don't know the voltage of the lamp in terms of generating heat. I would probably do one of two things. Mount a picture on the inside that would ha...
  25. Zippo will answer your questions and even repair your lighters for free. They are in Bradford, PA and have a web site and toll free number. You shouldn't have a problem researching a zippo.....if you ...
  26. I went down this road two years ago with the admin here. I was told this has nothing to do with collecting. I also suggested sharing how to. I was told the same thing. Packratplace left because his pi...
  27. I would think this was originally marked Holborn and was a banding tool.
  28. Be aware that the embossing went on for years after the law was repealed because it was less expensive to leave the embossing and there was no requirement to remove it. The law applied to bottles cont...
  29. It would seem your bottle was produced between 1935 and 1964 based on the embossing. “FEDERAL LAW FORBIDS SALE OR REUSE OF THIS BOTTLE” This law went into effect in 1935 and was repealed on Decembe...
  30. The name on the patent is the name the patent was issued to. I also found references to him being deported a year later. I didn't pursue that because I was interested in the door stop. When cast iron ...
  31. Banana works great until it gets short or you get a boot in the butt. Also never melt cheese for your sandwich in the new toaster.
  32. I will be watching for more information.
  33. The fan blades on these were metal and had no respect for little fingers if they were poked in. I remember them from the late 50's. Set a bowl of ice cubes in front of it and crank it up.....instant a...
  34. Notice the spelling of the name, common error back then
  35. Here is the patent info and picture. http://www.google.com/patents/USD82405
  36. You will find tons of them for sale but little info on the maker.
  37. You didn't give any dimensions or specs. Based on the size of the dog next to it I would say it is a miniature. Probably a GEMCO salesman's sample made of tin during the 1950's.
  38. Research - patented by Charles Tuteur of Chicago in July 1930. You should find it as you list it above by name. I didn't pursue it to find out if a patent was actually issued.
  39. I agree with scottvez. In addition the letter spacing inside the oval is off. You might research S&S Firearms. They made reproductions and sold many of them. They did NOT advertise them as being origi...
  40. I have seen these boxes many, many years ago before computers and almost before TV. Back when people read magazines the magazines like National Geographic, Look and Life were all putting out news and ...
  41. If it actually has the words "Made In" then it was made after the tariff act of 1930.
  42. I think this went into a socket type wooden handle. It looks like an old barking spud to me. If you never worked in the woods or at a saw mill that doesn't mean anything to you but do some research on...
  43. Fun post. Our grandson just turned 7 last month and is collecting. We had a bunch of the people and the little vehicles so we sent them to him. His dad built him a display shelf. He also got some orig...
  44. HAPPY EASTER Tora and if you live west of me then HAPPY WESTER.
  45. The backward then forward words caught my eye. Nice piece.
  46. Kind of unusual because the word Pacific is read counter clockwise and electric is read clockwise.
  47. This was a tee handle socket. The tee bar is missing, it went through the hole at the top end so you could get leverage to turn it. The ones I have were made by a company named Williams. I got them fr...
  48. There are both male and female versions of this and originals I have seen are marked on the back above the screw. The female should be Dinah I think and I am sure the male is marked Jolly Nigger.
  49. I have only worked with wood for 50 years but paint is a lazy man's way of hiding sin. I know you don't like my comment and I hope you know I dislike how you detract from a piece because you are to la...
  50. I believe this is properly called a double bit key. I collected skeleton keys for a number of years and these were way out of my price range. Most I have seen were from France. I couldn't pay 2 or 3 h...
