  1. great sign, I love it
  2. @ racer4four, I went to the toy museum on saturday, and took some pictures, you can see them on my twitter page here : https://twitter.com/jmvcom4/media
  3. @birdjt it's worth what you see on the link from Daddy_Nobucks, "was priced at $176 retail in mail order catalogs." I love reading this "No old shade like this was ever made. This is an entirely ne...
  4. wow I wonder who could buy that, it's far beyond from restoration, it's a total reconstruction, is there any part on this that is not rusted ?
  5. If you are sure it's an old original lamp, buy the book from Allan Petretti's Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide, I'm pretty sure youll find your answer in that book ( and all the knowledgeable people...
  6. very nice, it's the holy grail of bakelite radio, I would leave it just like that, it's fantastic
  7. Just a little advice if you want to find only original old antique items stay away from item produced in wood or cast iron, at 99% they are fake fantasy recent items original wood toys had a decal ...
  8. brand new item once again, it's just a decorator piece that was mass produced in india or pakistan... Think about that if that was old it would be better made than that
  9. sure I'll try to go on sunday but here are some picture of the museum I found online : https://aline2318.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/musc3a9e-du-jouet-04.jpg https://aline2318.files.wordpress.c...
  10. thanks, once again it I found it at the same monthly collector show inside a mall here in Brussels, but today the choice was tough many expensive items and not always in the best condition, but I got ...
  11. nice great collection of nice cans
  12. thanks, i've just add a video of it working here on youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUc7bAsENLg
  13. this pepsi logo is fairly new around 2000-2005
  14. that's just a well know scam, somebody switch the cap or the label and call it rare item, that's just a bottle with wrong cap on it, the cap can be easily replace with a pepsi one
  15. Thanks, it's the second time I goes to that toy show and that's a great fun, it's inside a shopping mall with around 80-100 sellers with quality merchandise, you can see toys that you never seen befor...
  16. nice, did you hang it on your wall to display it ? Id'love to see it well displayed on your wall, that's a wonderful sign, I love it
  17. wow great graphic on this can, it's beautiful
  18. it was produced by NAKAMURA, The letters “NT” (N superimposed on T in a circle)
  19. yep another fantasy piece made less than 10 years ago, not value at all, if that's wood I think that can be used in a fireplace
  20. I've just found and old photograph of the same sign in situation in Belgium, usually this sign was placed in front of cafés and restaurant here in Belgium, quite odd that it was placed on a tree
  21. no, don't make lamp with them, just a good cleaning, maybe a fresh paint ( please no theme on them ) and that's a great decoration piece, i restore one a few years ago all in red, that's great, I hope...
  22. I would say even later around 1990's - 2000, poorly made fake fantasy item worth absolutly nothing
  23. just to compare, here is one of my original ones : http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/56879-coca-cola-ice-chest-cooler
  24. ouch 80 £ it's really bad for you, did you have a return policy to the seller to have a refund ? the best advice I can give you if you're looking for original coca cola items is taking your time, don'...
  25. If I may ask, how much did you pay for it ?
  26. you just bought a fake fantasy cooler made in india less than 10 years ago, they are fowing the market with those and many people got fooled with those
  27. she snore cocaine... not coca cola, coke = cocaine
  28. those were made to be sold as decorative piece, they are poorly made, usually made in pakistan or india, no value at all and she's not snoring coca cola but cocaine... so took this thing and put it in...
  29. pure fantasy item made less than 10 years ago, not original, worth 2 tot 5 $ maximum
  30. thanks for the comments and love, those early toys from 1920-1930's are so well made
  31. thanks for the comments and love, airplanes tin toys are quite rare even in toy show, I don't see those often so I have to jump on it and it's a great buy
  32. I don't know much about furniture but look on the underside of the chair if there is a maker name, for good furniture, name was usually placed under it, good pieces were produced by hand, modern piece...
  33. nice microphone, yours is mising the small shure logo in the centre of the microphone but it's still nice
  34. wonderful item and it great condition
  35. nice model
  36. coca cola wave = after 1970
  37. like I told you a few hours ago it's a recent item made less than 10 years ago to be sold as decorative piece, not original old item, it's worth 2 to 5 $ maximum
  38. yep, that's a theme applied recently to an old cooler, it was not really a coca cola cooler, just a clasic cooler repainted with a coca cola theme not an original coca cola cooler
  39. thanks, a full size would be fun to drive, I'm sure people would go crazy to see that driving in the street
  40. thanks, I only collect tin toys for 9 months as it became really difficult to find other items such oil cans, signs, microphones,... and I really enjoy going to shows or internet to find great and wel...
  41. thanks, and the clockwork mechanism work perfectly well
  42. with the wave on the back it's after 1970 but it could be anywhere from 1970 to 2015
  43. great, nice set of beautiful trucks
  44. aha but you're not complety wrong, gas and oil companies made salt and pepper with shapes of gas pumps : http://p2.la-img.com/249/58420/28722577_1_l.jpg
  45. great items and great work on the polishing, I love it
  46. and a better picture : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1e/%2750s_Willys.JPG

  48. wow great found, you've just found a beauty, I love it
  49. It took me a few days for it but it's going nice, I took the old paint off as the bakelite underneath the paint was in gorgeous condition, so after a few days of scraping and carefully removing the pa...
  50. I don't think there was a manufacturer for this one, it looks home made
