  15. Thank you fortapache and toolate2, I know it came out of the Sears Catalogue, but there was no price with the paperwork, so I have no idea what they sold for back then or who was brave enough to use ...

  20. I have been called a lot of things, but lazy has never been one them. I'm the hardest worker I know doing construction side by side with real men. But at any rate that is your opinion and I still ...
  21. I appreciate your feedback. I posted it on another site and they also said possibly Murano.. I hope so. It was found under a leaky hot water heater. Unbelievable.

  29. Yes, I sent in to Replacements.com and they agree that they are English King Pattern.
  30. Love it
  31. I wrote the pattern down , but realized afterwards that the PAT # was on another set that I have. So don't pay any attention to the English King pattern because I am not sure.
  32. Any idea's if this is a writing desk or a ink well desk?
  33. Thank You ron1939 , They are awesome feet.
