My posts should say it all. Toys, militaria, electric fans, depression glass, graniteware and whatever looks good in my house. And gnomes for outside the house.

  1. Indeed it is a great collection. Many fine pieces there.
  2. Looks like a decorator item to me. Does not look old to me. I could be mistaken though.
  3. Thank you aghcollect geo26e nutsabotas6
  4. Thank you very much Aiomathena. I am fairly comfortable with my amount of Easter stuff although I have been looking for more sugar eggs and chenille chickens and bunny village stuff. May still get so...
  5. Thank you very much racer4four and a happy glass collecting Easter to you.
  6. I should have gotten the Firestone thing right away as I used to live in Downey over by Dennis the Menace Park. Used to go over to that early McDonalds at Lakewood and Florence.
  7. It would look great with the ammunition loops full. I was thinking it went around the waist but that would be very uncomfortable without a suspender due to the weight. Anyway was it worn around the wa...
  8. Quite the colorful Easter display. Happy Easter to you too.
  9. Great story on that and another excellent history lesson. The side fed magazine gives it a unique and attractive appearance.
  10. Thank you AzTom
  11. Thank you very much for the comment antiquerose
  12. Hmmm a famous street name in the LA area. I am thinking Firestone. The Felix Chevrolet sign I am very familiar with from every time I went to Exposition Park.
  13. Love it. Used to collect these when I was a teen. I still save any wheat ear I get.
  14. Thank you vetraio50 officialfuel aghcollect Manakin geo26e kerry10456 tom61375 Virgina.vintage blunderbuss2 Moonstonelover21
  15. Thank you very much nutsabotas6. I just cleaned it up and it looks like mint now.

  17. Thank you kindly antiquerose
  18. Thank you very much Aimathena.
  19. Thank you very much AmberRose. I am going to get me a few more.
  20. Thank you VERONTIQUE for the kind compliment.
  21. Thank you very much racer4four. My chickens thank you too.
  22. Thank you very much Aimathena. It is a fine basket. Don't know if the glass pieces are vintage or not.

  24. Thank you toolate2. We had 2 or 3 of these when I was a kid in the 60s. Don't know what happened to them. Sorry to hear of its demise.
  25. Thank you very much Vintagefran. I saw one at an antique store last year but I passed it up. What was I thinking?
  26. Thank you kindly fhrjr2. It has managed to survive a long time.
  27. Thank you very much Manikan. Prices for these online aren't bad but it is hard to find a large vintage one like this.
  28. Thank you very much AmberRose. Pretty sure it is almost all sugar. The tricky part seems to making it stay together so solid.
  29. Thank you very much racer4four. No ants yet. Yes the characters are plastic. And thank you for the compliment.
  30. Pretty cool manicure set. I think the hooks are for cleaning the finger nails. But then again maybe not. My wild guess-o-meter says 1920s or earlier.
  31. That is an excellent display. I like the radio too. And the scooter. And the tricycle.
  32. That is quite the Easter display.
  33. It's right up there with switchblade. I think they are illegal to carry in California. But you can own one.
  34. Thank you mcheconi
  35. Sorry but I have no clue. I have a feeling it is made to look old. If that is a sticker that says "Made in Italy" probably not all that old.
  36. Thank you FOO4Fun
  37. Thank you REED
  38. Thank you lisa and REED
  39. Thank you very much AmberRose for the comment and love.
  40. The price for a bayonet and scabbard seems to be about $100 now. I think I paid $7 for mine.
  41. I had a feeling that was what an en bloc clip was but wasn't quite sure. In the meantime I'll hold off on depression glass but I have plenty of other genuine collectibles to post.
  42. That's a great buy. The Windsor cake platter is worth about $30 maybe more.
  43. Thank you jjsr.
  44. Thank you very much Trey. I need to do a separate post for the space suit.
  45. Another great history piece. Is that a stripper clip or does it go directly into the rifle?
  46. I have a WWII era version of that bayonet that I bought when I was in my teens. Got it at an antique store though. Did get some others at Army surplus stores. Not much army surplus at army surplus sto...

  48. Thank you racer4four. I shall keep them coming.
  49. Thank you very much manikin. I am just getting started.
