  1. There was a dispute over made in Germany because it didn't identify east or west Germany. This is probably 1970's or newer.
  2. Interesting I told you the measurements before you measured it.
  3. You don't need to measure your butt find an antique chair and measure it. They run from 14 to 20 inches at the front for a normal/standard chair. They also run a normal/standard height of 36 inches. O...
  4. From here it looks like an old water pipe reamer (well used).
  5. I am sitting on the fence on this chair. It isn't original but it has all the design traits of a Pelham & Shell rocker. Once again we have someone who doesn't own a tape measure. The chair should have...
  6. It is unique isn't it? Nice looking little piece.
  7. Closest thing I ever saw would be a cigar rolling table. Certainly unusual design.
  8. Looks like a fence tensioner. Newer ones have a spring in the middle and hooks on one end.
  9. That is a skidding tong (a/k/a log grapple hook by some) the size of the choker and shape of the hooks tells you it is for logs and not bails of hay etc. The pines don't date this but the wood in the ...
  10. The picture looks like it was plucked off the Internet. Certainly not a Stickley. An original the bottom spreader/stretcher tenon would have gone all the way through. The Stickley brothers were well k...
  11. The dowels that hold the dowels are called pins. Having all wood construction allows the wood to expand and contract without splitting when temp and humidity changes. Screws, nails and glue all tend t...
  12. Original Hubley the screw would be on the left side middle of the body on a two piece mold and on a three piece there would be two screws both on the left side, one center body and one in the neck. Th...
  13. I never happened to see one of these that were all dowels. Back in the 1970's when macrame was the big thing I saw these in a kit but rather than all dowels it was mostly rope. They had dowels at stre...
  14. His smile is worth more than any bike ever made.
  15. Here is a thundermug (reproduction) with an original warning. Funny stuff. https://www.etsy.com/listing/126017795/vintage-reproduction-central-pacific
  16. This post always makes me laugh with old memories. Polite people called them a chamber pot, working people called them a thunderjug or thundermug.
  17. You did OK for $20. More important is the fact you like it and even more important is that you can accept it for what it is. Many people refuse to accept the fact that their item isn't quite as valuab...
  18. Go to his web site and email them. http://www.christopherradko.com/about-us/history/
  19. Nice find Mani, look at the smooth surface on the one you found. It has no pimples and sharp edges where the paint is chipped. That one on ebay looks like it came from an original cast.
  20. If you look at the bottom of this an original would have gate marks. Newer reproductions won't have them. The gate marks will always be on the underside of an original and a repro won't have them at a...
  21. Interesting fasteners in the first two pictures. If you look closely I believe you will find that is actually a very old type staple and not a bent over nail. One shank was long and the other short. T...
  22. All good observations and I will add one more. The dog is facing forward. I have never seen a forward facing dog authenticated or marked Hubley. The majority of them were facing right. Finding a left ...
  23. 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...
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
  26. I was Nam Class of 68.
  27. 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.
  28. 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...
  29. You will find it exactly as you show it. Nice old chair.
  30. 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 ...
  31. OK, the seat isn't original so a measurement to the side rail will do.
  32. That should have been How far from the floor to the top of the seat? My bad (typo)
  33. 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 ...
  34. Looks like they were carved from soapstone.
  35. 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...
  36. No wonder..........I spent my time at the sorority.
  37. What is stupid is not telling and showing markings and dimensions yet expecting an intelligent reply.
  38. Also called aerators but normally an aerator had spikes. I would guess this to be a thatcher. Could be wrong.
  39. Lawn thatcher not a field or pasture thatcher.
  40. I would say it is a thatcher.
  41. Very, very nice looking piece. Based on the pictures I would guess it is either burl from a Yew tree or spalted sycamore burl.
  42. Whew! I was getting ready to lock and load. If it was union made I have a year or two before anything happens.
  43. 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.
  44. No wonder Goliath lost, this thing could kill a Georgia mule.
  45. Double barrel slingshot?
  46. Looks like military body armor. Not much fun.
  47. 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...
  48. Most certainly a burl design veneer and who ever applied it did one heck of a job matching it.
  49. 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...
  50. 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?
  51. See more
