  1. Research Mohena tables and I think you will find it. South America and not to warm your feet. Also not an antique.
  2. Did you look at the under side with a loop? I just gave my Tootsie Toys to my grandson and the marking was somewhat difficult to see.
  3. Well, at this point in time only the US flag and left and right combat patches are "required" to be velcro. Anywhere else on the uniform patches can be sewn over the velcro. Troops didn't like the vel...
  4. You are mostly right on the sew or velcro Scott. Depends on the uniform and the theater or operation. Some are and always have been sew on with certain dress and other dress velcro is used. I am assum...
  5. They say there is one born every minute, advertise it as a New Old trunk. You wouldn't be telling a lie and someone will love it. Make the best of it and I am sure you can find a new owner that will l...
  6. I was putting off saying it but Scott did. The first thing that caught my eye was the location of the handle on a two piece side. Rule of thumb is 2/3rds of the way up from the bottom. Location of the...
  7. I would sooner think it was an enlargement and reduction gauge of some sort. Possibly for elongation.
  8. I can't bring the front or side pictures ( #1 & 2 ) in close enough to see them well. Old eyes do that to you. I would venture to say the front was added on. Someone made a fairly good attempt at dove...
  9. Easiest way to find out is jump on their web site and use the "contact us" link. They can probably say Yea or Nay pretty quickly. They say their products are marked on the under side GMB in an oval. T...
  10. Thanks to all
  11. Having been found in an old barn I would still think cog tool. Looks like it would mesh with the gears on a fly wheel to back it off when equipment jambs.
  12. I will throw my 2 cents your way. Even though the "Base" is marked G.S. Perry I do not think they made the desk. I think Perry only made the metal work at their foundry. I believe they supplied U.S. S...
  13. Probably fired from a browning. Mean weapon if you could tote it.
  14. Same ranger badge still in use today.
  15. This is just faded. Same thing is used today. Our oldest son is an instructor at ranger school now at various locations. I will post in a moment to verify.
  16. Looks like a cog wrench to me.
  17. Much as I would like to put in 2 cents....I won't just yet. Go back a hundred and fifty or two hundred years and strap wrenches weren't called strap wrenches and they didn't have side slots, they use...
  18. If you do some research you will find that quality units are marked and where they are marked. They average guy can get by with dollar store items, a professional needs a bit more accuracy. If you wen...
  19. That is an inclinometer rule with a bevel. Used by an architect normally.
  20. Only one part of this is being shown. Someone took a saw to it and cut the frame.
  21. Your pictures don't show much, it looks like one part of a homemade creeper.
  22. I initially missed your comment about a book holder under the seat. Obviously a theater has no use for a book holder. I enlarged your photo and that is not a book holder. It is a wire hat holder under...
  23. Expansion table, A/K/A double track expansion table, A/K/A expansion trestle table. I might question her recall on how long she owned it.
  24. When did you decide the head is made of stone? I guess I missed my point. I'm gone.
  25. These were called "row seats". These are a bit fancy for a school application. The punched out back and five point star may be your best clue during research. The holes weren't just a design they were...
  26. This has a quarry buster head but could also be a bull set. Both were used for basically the same thing.
  27. I will give this a guess which is my 2 cents from growing up in New England. I would say it is a maul, which is common in New England as it applies to wood splitting. However I seriously doubt this wa...
  28. I was going to suggest that it is a brass chafing dish used along side a fondue. The brass retains heat longer than copper. This looks about the right size to fit over a can of Sterno.
  29. Rustfarm hit it. They are called rung locks and mount on an extension ladder. I would say these are fairly old because the flippers appear to be metal. Now days the flippers are plastic so they break ...
  30. Post a photo of the bottom and also the marking which should be on the bottom of the digging bucket. Length of the thing would also help verify it is actually a Hubley. Thanks
  31. CW software has absolutely nothing to do with image orientation. It presents what you send it. You need to open the image, rotate it correctly and then SAVE IT. Then when you post it all will be well....
  32. Stinky feet aside, I clicked love for one reason....you posted the image right side up and you didn't say they came from a great grandmother's third cousin's fifth uncle who lived in a house 300 years...
  33. Very logical question. The stove does not actually go in the fireplace, it sits on the hearth. There would be a steel plate covering the firebox of the fireplace and only the stove pipe would actually...
  34. OK, box for a quarter. Now do yourself a favor and research the tax stamp on it. I have found a few unusual tax stamps over the years. Everyone sees a box nobody sees the stamp. You never know if you ...
  35. Looks like a Yancy Derringer cap gun from the TV show years ago.
  36. Similar to yours. https://www.etsy.com/listing/230960902/vintage-budweiser-anheuser-busch-wood?ref=market
  37. Certainly looks like a spark flint torch from what little you can see.
  38. I would say you have a peeler/scraper. Peeler side flat to peel potato and a side with teeth for dragging/scraping down an ear of corn to strip the nibblets off the cob.
  39. I appreciate the reply. I am sure someone here can give you information. You have given me new insight on how to identify an antique.
  40. How can you be sure they are antiques if you don't know what they are? Just asking.
  41. I intended no disrespect, however....the age of the person who owned it has no bearing on the age of the item. Old people buy new things.
  42. The joint you show isn't original, it is a repair. That isn't a bad thing. I will explain if I can find the right words. The joint you show is a dowel plug. When the original joint weakens or breaks y...
  43. Very interesting. My lesson for the day. I would have said it is either a point switch lock or a track lock. Thanks for sharing.
  44. The picture doesn't enlarge so I need to ask a question. Excuse the expression but does this have a pointed tit or possibly a half round cutting edge that protrudes just a little? Perhaps 1/8th".
  45. I have seen these on Antiques Road Show and and other web sites listed as square grand piano desks. Depending on the maker they can be quite valuable.
  46. The design of this plate was changed in 1987 but challenger plates are available when you renew for $28 extra. Florida does their best to squeeze a few extra bucks out of us. I believe the one shown w...
  47. I am old enough to remember these and they were in our post office when I was a bit younger. Being a small town there were only so many post office boxes to rent. You had a three digit combo lock on t...
  48. If you don't have the "R" then you face an uphill battle to authenticate them. Does your bill of sale say Roycroft or does it say Roycroft Style?
  49. I agree that it is a Wards stove. Around mid 1980's and one of their "Earth Stoves" as they called them. They could be used as a free standing stove or a fireplace insert. They were air tight stoves a...
  50. This would be called a tri-fold but I question calling it a dresser. A tri-fold dresser would have a wood top. A tri-fold wash stand would have a marble or granite top. The reason being water damage t...
