  3. I have just a last question for you, how did you find those oil can skin ? did you cut yourself oil can or did you find a bunch of those flatted cans ?
  4. just compare the complete oil can from dave, there are 3 white lines on the bottom then a black line then the seam, yours has been cut in the middle of the white lines, there are 2 white lines and som...

  13. I think it's made of masonite during World War II period
  14. not at the seams, it's missing a good part and not have been cut properly, like I said they have been cut and around 0,8 inches are missing on the bottom, plus oil cans are worth when complete and in ...
  15. some really talented persons can relid an oil can but yours has been badly cut on the bottom and it's missing some on the lithography, that's too bad but this can is ruined, there is nothing to do wit...

  18. it's for sure from the 1990's

  27. made in india and I don't think they are old http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Mother-Of-Pearl-Decorative-Balls_143914273.html
  28. I have some concern about it, first never listen what a seller told you, he can have told anything until you don't have real proofs I don't think there were only 3 of those made, most of the pedal ...
  29. Thanks, I always like those toys they always remind me the cars from dick tracy : http://www.neoglass.ro/images/easyblog_images//944/Made%20in%20Hollywood/Dick-Tracy.jpg I grew up in the 90's and a...

  37. be aware that at this period time painting had lead in it which was toxic..., a beautiful wood oak stain will be perfect for this beauty
  38. it's not patina, the paint is damaged, removed the old horrible white paint and try to find a stain for old oak wood, you'll see the difference will be fantastic
  39. I think the best thing to do if you want old parts is finding a same one to take the missing part for yours, I got myself one from 1900 but a complete one and it's impossible to find parts for sale fo...
  40. thanks all for loves and comments
  41. Wow outstanding condition for this beauty
  42. I think it came from a kelvinator 180 cooler from the 1950's
  43. that's not a sign, that's a cooler lid
  44. it was worth trying, I put a light coat of wd40 over the sign and it works great, it cover the white stains and obscure a little the sign, we can see beter the forest green of the sign, that's not too...
  45. nice piece, I'm pretty sure the restaurant used and old sign to make this one, I think it was at first a royal crown cola sign which was painted over in white with canada dry decals placed on it with ...
