  1. Photo #3 is the only one that comes up clear. I would direct your attention to the evenly spaced pock marks on the interior walls. Normally those don't show as the inside would have been run through a...
  2. The pictures are too blurry to see much of the fasteners or overlap of the wood. Might have been made in or reproduction of bent wood boxes made in Norway. You didn't give any dimensions so I guess it...
  3. What I found interesting about this is picture #2. The legs appear to slide into a key way. High quality tables the leg slid into a dovetail key way. This appears to be similar and a bit uncommon if t...
  4. I was Nam Class of 68.
  5. The hair always brings back the Vietnam era but the first thing I noticed was his boots. Roper style and possibly dingo boots. Funny the things you focus on in a picture.
  6. Thanks for the measurements they are right on target. I have no doubt your chair is original and at the same time not one of the first. The first ones didn't have arms or a cushion seat (those came la...
  7. You will find it exactly as you show it. Nice old chair.
  8. This isn't unusual. It is commonly called the face chair and is not hand carved it is a double press (one of the first double press). The crest board was done with a stencil and probably this would ...
  9. If you need another one I have one in the junk box. I graduated to a digital clamp meter. When in doubt have the wife hold the wires and throw the switch. That usually only works once but it saves time.
  10. OK, the seat isn't original so a measurement to the side rail will do.
  11. That should have been How far from the floor to the top of the seat? My bad (typo)
  12. Your pictures do not expand so I will ask a question. Is this chair really low compared to a standard size chair? Now far from the floor to the top of the seat? I don't care about total height, it is ...
  13. Looks like they were carved from soapstone.
  14. Drive In's didn't start until 1933 so this isn't an antique quite yet. This year was the deadline for them to go digital or shut down. I was amazed at the public support and donations to keep drive in...
  15. No wonder..........I spent my time at the sorority.
  16. What is stupid is not telling and showing markings and dimensions yet expecting an intelligent reply.
  17. Also called aerators but normally an aerator had spikes. I would guess this to be a thatcher. Could be wrong.
  18. Lawn thatcher not a field or pasture thatcher.
  19. I would say it is a thatcher.
  20. Very, very nice looking piece. Based on the pictures I would guess it is either burl from a Yew tree or spalted sycamore burl.
  21. Whew! I was getting ready to lock and load. If it was union made I have a year or two before anything happens.
  22. I just hope homeland security doesn't see this. We could all be in trouble for just viewing it. I'm pretty safe I think, wife doesn't own any and my slingshot is to small.
  23. No wonder Goliath lost, this thing could kill a Georgia mule.
  24. Double barrel slingshot?
  25. Looks like military body armor. Not much fun.
  26. I am looking at picture #2. It doesn't enlarge without blurring but it appears there are M-18 shelf supports in the back legs. See if a magnet sticks to them. Older original ones were brass newer ones...
  27. Most certainly a burl design veneer and who ever applied it did one heck of a job matching it.
  28. Sorry, I thought you were looking at a combination reset switch. I have two armored briefcases that have switched inside to reset the combination. Remembering the combination is my problem.....that is...
  29. The image is blurry and dark but I believe you are looking at the combination reset switch. The part on the inside should slide left and right, is that correct?
  30. I have one like this that is all metal. Mine is one piece where yours has the wooden handle. I never did figure out what it was so I have it in a tool box. Mine is made of one solid piece of aluminum ...
  31. Tube I agree with your comments but the shear massiveness of it defies good business sense. There is enough material in this to make two or more. Rainforest cutting is starting to be regulated and th...
  32. I had to give this a big love just based on picture #2. The dimension of the stock used to build this is massive and the joinery I can see it will outlast many generations of use. This thing will supp...
  33. Nice looking start and full bottles also. I used to collect gun oil and nitro solvent etc. Amazing the stuff you can find poking around sales.
  34. Scottvez, read the next sentence. 100 years of age and in it's original unaltered condition. Now days people call anything older than they are an antique. Gotta love it.
  35. I tend to agree with it being slightly pre or during WWII. The veneer can be replaced and if you can't match the color go for something a little lighter in color. A good man with a heat gun can darken...
  36. The fact that it has a bar code will tell you a great deal about the age. That bar code may also lead you to more information but it takes bunches of research. I had one of these around 1958, long...
  37. OK, thanks for the reply. I will let someone else pick this up and run with it.
  38. Very symmetrical hole in this. How far does the hole go up inside it?
  39. I would say even based on pictures this isn't real scrimshaw. I hand painted it for Artek Co. back in the late 80's & early 90's. Piece work you could do at home to make extra money. Lots of it out th...
  40. I never happened to hear this called a D-table. Wall table or console table but not a D- table. Maybe I will learn something today.
  41. Agree with Vet4. Can't read the brand because it is sideways and blurred.
  42. My only vises now days are women and beer. Looking at your vise I would guess it is either a Phoenix or a repro of a Phoenix. The pictures aren't close up but I would venture to say it is probably ori...
  43. I would say it is a repro. I never saw an original with a pan head screw. The casting doesn't meet up and the bottom is unfinished. The paint was common in the 1950's and 60's reproductions. That does...
  44. Exciting? You bet. I think sitting on those hinges was more than exciting. Certainly not a love seat. Well done and crude at the same time.
  45. Before computers researching stuff was next to impossible. Now it is easier I am to old to give a darn. Just my luck.
  46. These aren't even close to being antiques. You can look them up on the Cross web site, usually by the name ( signature, tribute etc.) Look above the clip by the nib for information if it isn't on the ...
  47. Check your mark with: 1960 Rosenthal Porcelain AG Green Underglaze
  48. I first tried researching Rosenthal 40 years ago when I was in Germany. Well before computers or the Internet. Today the iron curtain is gone and databases are growing. Here is a site for you with Ros...
  49. Also you could send pic's to S&W and ask them. They are great folks to deal with. Mine have a serial number under the S&W logo and I bought them 30 + years ago. I use them for a gun lock when kids are...
  50. The pictures aren't so great and I can't see the entire key. They look like a standard two link set probably double lock (can't see the key). I would guess they are stainless steel which would make th...
