  1. Very nice photo's but a bit dark. I will stick with it being English walnut and very well aged at that. The type wood doesn't define where it was made and is just my opinion. If you are trying for an ...
  2. Also, please take a close look at the image. The face of a pig. Does that fit in with Saudi Arabia? You can't even ship your son Slim Jim's with pork over there.
  3. I would sooner think it is a liquid incense burner.
  4. I was going easy.
  5. How I love that story. Makes me want to run out and believe a used car salesman.
  6. OK, you didn't provide much to work with. What part of the country was the drug store located in? You are talking the great depression years if your age is right, which I seriously doubt. If we assume...
  7. Would I be correct to assume a dealer told you this is mahogany? Did they specify mahogany wood or did they say mahogany finish?
  8. Nes - This design never really took off in the U.S.A. it was more common in Europe. We may be totally wrong but I have used a few of these long ago and far away.
  9. Exactly where I was going. Probably made by Neuman around 1910. Although I think this one was for stove pipe as opposed to the main flue.
  10. Was there a rope tied to the upper loop when you got it? Did you clean it up?
  11. This looks very similar to the kit I spoke of. I don't recall the brake but I am talking 1958 to around 63 so my recall may well need cleansing. As I recall the kit was around $148 and no one family i...
  12. You can find hundreds of these online. There are also pipe collector sites that are a wealth of information. Unless you have a very rare one they are common and don't command much on the market.
  13. I have larger ones used to pour lead. Mine are marked for weight. In other words if a lead pour requires one pound you use the one pound ladle. You can make the ingots in advance the proper weight rea...
  14. Glad you are up and running. Also glad to hear it was your heart that was a problem. I have often been told I don't have a heart so I should be okay. Brain isn't a problem here either....so I have bee...
  15. I can't see the photo close up but I believe this would be a kick sled. I think it was sold as a kit you put together. Boys Life Magazine ( boy scouts magazine) sold these years ago. You put them toge...
  16. To begin with I am speaking about the two pictures that are posted right side up. I don't bother with sideways or upside down images as I assume if they were important they would be posted right side ...
  17. The value of the cushion should be equal to or more than the value of the daughter who will get it.
  18. I will back off Scott. Was this a watchman? Constable? Police Officer? 1860's United States? I think not but will be glad to learn.
  19. I have found much dispute about it. I could actually care less but found it interesting at some point in life, Like no man shall keep or bear title. This may have been defiance at it's best. I still q...
  20. The word POLICE Scott.
  21. The first police badges were issued in London A number of years later. I wonder how this came to be earlier, but I will learn from the reply. Interesting post but I won't follow it. Let's be real.
  22. I would say amazing condition for the age of it. You must dig very gently.
  23. If you paid less than $10 for it you did fairly well. If you are thinking Antique you need to grab some research. I won't even ask for foundry marks the base stop tells the story.
  24. Can you show the back side? I think you are jumping to a conclusion. You may have more than the parts of the whole.
  25. Looking at the welds and the crank knobs tells me it isn't old and parts are missing.
  26. I am not seeing any foundry marks and all new hardware in terms of what you show for fasteners. An antique is an antique in it's original unaltered condition. The rework on this is an issue but not a ...
  27. Any bolts or screws that you assume to be original.
  28. More pictures would help but when I blow this image up I see totally modern fasteners and crank handle. Closer pictures may help.
  29. Take pictures of the back side where it is fastened together. The back or bottom should have foundry marks if it is original. Foundry marks should be very easy to see but may be difficult to read if t...
  30. The metal work is original and most probably late 40's to 50's. You will find them online as both single and double seat desks. What you won't find is dovetail joints in an original. Unless this was c...
  31. No problem. People who care post their items properly. Obviously you could care less. That is quite fine but don't expect any help. Nobody here stands on their head to look at your items. I am pleased...
  32. Maybe Williams - Sonoma, maybe not. Terrible pictures don't get you much, sorry.
  33. We can see how important your item is by the way you post it. Looks like you consider this junk. Don't blame the site or your phone. Get a life and do like the rest of us do and post it properly.
  34. Never count on one part of the whole to date it. I have caster from pre WWII in my shop I could put on anything I can drill a hole in, new or old. You need to examine all of the parts that make up the...
  35. This isn't the place to request values. I can believe it was in a guest room for 50 years and probably a bit more. Your picture says nothing about the construction or joinery. Having the mirror is a p...
  36. I don't know anything about geode but I did collect ashtrays. This reminded me of a bed pan.....sorry.
  37. It is not older but it is worth $40 if you are going to use it rather than trying to turn a profit. One word of warning, if you have kids you are better off passing on the set. The chairs won't tolera...
  38. My spelling was wrong somewhat, it is called both marmite and mermite with mermite being more commonly used today where marmite was used during the 1930's and 40's. Sorry about the confusion.
  39. I believe this was a military medical shipping canister . They shipped whole blood and plasma packed in ice and/or dry ice. The US Army learned this method from the British during WWII. I believe the ...
  40. Kind of sounds like that was copied word for word out of a book.
  41. Good looking job. Color matching is always a major issue. I have had good luck with markers in the short term but in the long run they tend to not do so well unless the surface has been sealed. I have...
  42. I wonder if you could post a picture of the bottom side? Are the screw threads threaded wood? Looking at the very bottom of picture #2 there appears to be a thin piece of wood in a slot. Does that sli...
  43. Obviously homeland security will be monitoring this post so I will pass.
  44. It is a tea cart with a glass serving tray. If you try researching it you will find plenty of them with the same wheels. They are selling for $20 on silvertownauctions.com. Mass produced in Asia and m...
  45. I agree with agh, what are the markings? Is it marked 24k? How did you decide it is 30's vintage?
  46. Oh yeh! Now I know where you are coming from. I don't smoke that stuff. Thanks for the reply.
  47. Interesting condition for having been bought 35 years ago.
  48. Some versions of this did come with a little hammer. I remember my grandfather always having one of these in his shirt pocket. He tended the one room school house and then the new school house when it...
  49. Beautiful - You present a reasonable question about this being a shim. Now if you will provide the information about the plane it was used in that would help. It isn't uncommon for a shim to be ground...
  50. Research Anglo-Indian Planters chair. Made of teak in England. This is a modern reproduction. Some had folding arms and others extending arms.
  51. See more
