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. I love car shows. That is the best split window 63 vette I have seen.
  2. Do you have Rupert the Rhinoceros?
  3. I would trade you some coyotes but I need them to eat the gophers. I have a lot of pine cones though.
  4. It is beautiful.

  12. Thank you very much nutsabotas6. Quite kind of you to say so.
  13. Thank you very much Manikan. Sorry about the marines but they do have a flame thrower.
  14. Thank you very much Sean. It is one of my favorite sets.
  15. It was made in 1967 and 1968 racer4four and Vincent. Very glad you liked it.
  16. Sorry Ripley. That just is not true. I have a number of post 1950 fans with aluminum and steel blades that do not have safety cages. They are not industrial fans. If you see a fan with a safety cage i...
  17. I will disagree about it not being a residential fan. The unsafe cage was standard back in the day as were the bolt wholes for mounting it to a wall. The safe cage doesn't come into existence until ab...
  18. I would be happy to help you clean it out. Looks like someone knows how to front and face.
  19. I can't find any solid information on this so unless anyone else comes up with something you will have to go with my WAG of 1940. The base and motor housing look 1930s. The cage looks a bit later. Fa...
  20. This has the pan style motor housing so I am guessing late 40s. Possibly earlier but not much. Around 1950 they switch to the bullet style motor housing. I have no clue who made it either. Looks lik...

  30. At least I got the Jenkins Glass right. Pattern #190 Tea Room.
  31. I vote clean it up and leave it as is. Especially leave the stickers. Plus it is much easier.
  32. Thank you very much racer4four. The paint has a few small chips but it does look sharp. A good GI Joe post coming soon......
  33. Ocean Wave seems to be am alias/nickname for this pattern. Tea Room does seem to be the official name.
  34. That's a really cool and clever display. Deserves a few more loves.
  35. Great piece. I really need to get a black light.
  36. Love the stickers on the top. Beautiful trunk.
  37. Each one of these signs is worth its own post. Great signs.
  38. Thank you Manikan RonM cicero6211
  39. First one is a matchbox kingsize Scammel Heavy Wreck Truck from about 1968.
  40. Interesting phone as it seems like a transitional phone from the wooden wall phones that came before it. I just check the net for info. If you have a model # or some such it could help.
  41. Say hi to Aimathena for me.
