Not quite a city or town but a place with a post office and as Alpine was taken they came up with Twin Peaks. The odd thing being that there is only one peak. Anyway my speciality is toys of the 1960s although I collect much more. I have a particular weakness for taxidermy which includes everything from insects to bear skin rugs although I don't have a bear skin rug yet. fortapacheftr@charter.net (Read more)

  3. Yours looks like a shorter version of mine..... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/205803-antique-trunk-red-metal-finish#comment-1082111 It's a 1900s monitor top or waterfall. Just check out wh...

  15. Looks to be a Victorian parlor table. Back in the long ago furniture had rollers so they could be moved for cleaning. When carpet became popular the little wheels disappear. You won't find another exa...
  16. Great photo. I can use that picture to ID some of my bottles.
  17. I like the cave, or well or whatever that thing is too.
  18. Great color. Bottles like this are why there a purple insulators. Some of them at least.
  19. The Lotus Europa is a classic. Perfect for pulling trailers.
  20. Thank you pw-collector.
  21. Thank you filmsonly4me.
  22. Thank you very much shareurpassion. I'll bet a pet skunk would be good to keep burglars away.

  27. Thank you very much 2P. Perhaps I should try some different angles.
  28. Make that nut and screw.
  29. I have a feeling this may be from Europe. It's not unusual to see repairs on enamelware as the finish is like glass and breaks when dropped or hit. Usually they used mendits which is basically a bolt ...
  30. Looks like a genuine bowie knife to me. Hard to say how old it is as backyard blacksmiths have been making them since the first one was made. Looks good.
  31. Looks like it is which is to say yes. Circa 1950s - 1960s and not depression glass.
  32. Flying A had some of the best signs ever.
  33. Great item. Looks like I need to brush up as there are a couple I can't ID. My excuse is that I don't often see them from that angle.

  41. Thank you vetraio50.
  42. I plan my vacations around antique malls. I make a list of them to stop along the way.
  43. I've always liked them too.
  44. The famed prerecorded cassettes. I recall they had the tabs punched out so you couldn't record over them. That and the rewinding pencil.
