  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Interesting that you smell cedar in this. It has been stained or sealed inside and out which kills cedar natural odor. It has mag catches on the doors and the hinges are over gained. I would sooner th...
  5. They look like Red Rose or Tetley Tea premiums that came in the tea. I have a few hundred of them waiting to be sorted out.
  6. Does this actually have the words "Made In Belgium" or does it just say Belgium?
  7. OK, there were a couple different sizes of these that were made by Hubley. The smaller ones were used as a paper weight and there was a small slot where the mouth is, that was used as a bookmark holde...
  8. It looks like and is built like a variation of a beam compass and/or trammel point
  9. Don't let me scare you away. I have no doubt these may be Hubley but the size and parts make a major difference.
  10. Can you tell us how tall they are? How long?
  11. Are these two piece with a single flat head screw in the middle of the left side holding them together?
  12. I am not a gun person but I did research one of these after a relative passed away. The lack of markings after the name indicates it is an inexpensive import. The lack of the name of the country it wa...
  13. If you are close to the west coast of Florida there is one of these for sale every weekend on the Mustang side of the Wagon Wheel flea market.
  14. I never heard of them but it is easy to tell this was a mother-in-law mask ;)
  15. Your picture #3 would be commonly called a blind dovetail. I believe it is a modified pin and cove dovetail as I recall. This type of joint is most common on the back end of a drawer.
  16. Ericocon - Your dad was right but was most likely making reference to the sugar bush as it is called. During the spring when the sap started to flow many of these found their way to be used gathering ...
  17. You might be better served calling this shaker style. If you are correct that the finish is original then it certainly is not shaker. They didn't use black. Their original rockers also had the skids a...
  18. Thanks to all for the loves and the comment. We both loved our time working with wood.
  19. Atlantic was not the name of a farm, Atlantic Metal Ware made these for dairy farms I think 1940's and 50's. You should have no problem finding it as they are fairly common, especially to people from ...
  20. That is an Atlantic Dairy Farm milk pail/bucket.
  21. Blunder = If I understand what you are saying you are looking up from the bottom and seeing the wedge in the bottom of the spindle. It can be removed quite quickly with a dremel tool and the proper si...
  22. You are right......it is NOT ALLOWED.
  23. Dam! I was being serious, I figured it was used after WWII during the baby boom. Production lines were a big thing back then. Hospitals were so busy back then my mother never showed up until the day a...
  24. Yes I do believe they were. The trim on the inside of the pedestal was milled out way, way over sized which makes me more sure this was a project desk. That isn't a bad thing because the plans for the...
  25. A wonder horse would be marked on the under side. A Hobson or Sears probably wouldn't be marked. I haven't had these since my kids grew up so a bit foggy. The Sears line (1950's) was called Happi Hors...
  26. Crow calls are still popular in the south. They have been migrating through here for close to three weeks and I will be glad when they are gone. Two years ago we had a crow stay behind because it fell...
  27. I found a patent for 1906 and 1903 but I didn't bookmark them.
  28. If you notice, the bottom stile meets the rail at floor level. That isn't common and is a sign that legs have been cut off. Normally the bottom stile will pass under the rails if there are no legs. I ...
  29. Cedar box probably made as a tourist item.
  30. Yes, No & Maybe. Do you have the wooden end that goes over the reed end? Most of the old ones came apart so you could clean them. This one seems to be lacking the mouth piece. New ones are all one pie...
  31. Give your husband my regards and thanks. I am Vietnam class of 68.
  32. By the way, your picture #2 seems to show vertical saw marks with burns. That is an interesting point. The blade was either dull or the wood pushed through it to fast and it scorched. More interesting...
  33. No, you didn't give me hell and I usually deserve it because of my sarcasm so no sleep lost. Pegging seats is not a common practice when chairs are first built. Pegging the crest board and stretchers ...
  34. As one man's opinion I think the seat was pegged when it was re-caned. I am also willing to bet it is at least a decade older than your estimate and probably more. Obviously this was not mass produced...
  35. No idea who made it but I like it a bunch.
  36. The most logical question is what markings are on it to establish it is gold?
  37. Maybe a circumcision production line???
  38. Working with wood can be habit forming and expensive.
  39. That is a bouncy horse and I would say the wooden base is original. They were made for a period of time with the wooden base then went to a tubular metal base. If you Google vintage child's bouncy hor...
  40. Excellent observations Scott. I was keeping quiet so I didn't catch hell again. Your turn to catch it.
  41. What are the marks showing it to be gold and silver? You can post four pictures so the back, inside and marks would help.
  42. Goodness, you certainly gave me an education about the merits and use of boiled linseed oil.
  43. The chair has seen rework so it is difficult to tell. Look at the last picture where the back spindles join the seat. The seat is not original either. The right side of this as you face it has been ta...
  44. I love it. My dad carved his out of hickory and it was always beside what ever chair he was sitting in. He saw it as a defensive instrument, a walking aid and an educational aid if you didn't listen t...
  45. Why not ask the person who told you the great great story? They seem to know the history.
  46. I believe it is more than restorable in the right hands. I have an idea what it is but having trouble finding it. That is why I questioned the size. I wish the date was closer than 30's.
  47. John took over the business in 1970. I never heard of them so had to do a little research. The modern soss hinges caught my eye in your pictures. He made mostly bedroom furniture, just research his na...
  48. I will have to post some of our Jacaranda pods. I gather them and send them up north for the handicapped children to decorate. They ruin a lawn mower blade but are great for arts and crafts.
  49. Sounds like Rose is talking about the air streams. Oodles of them here in FLorida.
  50. Wait for other comments. I am only speaking for what I have seen. Others may have seen different uses for the same item.
