  1. Sure if you like them. Although the quality of carnival horses did go way down with the newer ones they don't look at all like the originals and break more easily. I don't know what kind your's are bu...
  2. Thanks for letting me know.
  3. My grandfather was in the navy and gave me his silver certificates with their envelopes and uncirculated and plastic? silver dollar coins in their packages (never opened) I will have to dig these out ...

  6. This was the prices for bisque dolls! Sorry! I will go now and look for the celluloid prices. I thought this was one of the bisque dolls until I just went back up and read again.

  8. This is awsome!
  9. Thanks for the info! I knew the chalk was for some reason but wasn't quite sure what. This box is heavy duty compared to others I've seen. Also most of them have busted boards or warping as where this...
  10. My grandmother used to have a very ornate dining set and only one chair was different than the others and that was because it was the host chair. It was always to be at the head of the table. The rest...
  11. I have a book on the kewpies I will check it for you as I believe this particular doll was in there. I used to have some of these! I had a similar dress on mine as well but I don't know if it was orig...
  12. Hello I found one site that says the Ruth 2/0 was made in germany in the 1800's and then I found this site with one. I don't know if it is the same doll as yours but either could've been rewigged and ...
  13. It looks like an Armand Marseille from looking at her. I am not a doll expert though. Does her body have the "trim" type stuff going around where her body connects to the head? I'm assuming this is a ...
  14. This is really neat! I love the old brass boxes like these! Would be lovely in an office!
  15. Please wait Image not availableZoomEnlargeMouse here to zoom inPlease waitImage not available Sell one like this VINTAGE "ROCK GARDEN" AL CAPONE CLAY POKER CHIP ca 1934 Go paste this into ...
  16. Very neat find. I haven't seen any like these.
  17. Very nice! I love the detail of the children around the outside. I am looking into an antique columbia. I could kick myself in the butt for passing on the two I saw at the auction last week! They were...
  18. It looks like one of those old pans they used to use to boil stuff like lobsters as the (chimney) on top must let out pressure and steam. Looks like an old steam pot to me but I could be wrong.
  19. It's a very nice lamp! You should go check out "slag glass lamps" on ebay some of them are pretty pricey. Maybe you could find one like yours on there?
  20. I recently had a pair of old oil lamps that were converted into electric lamps they had the same little knob like yours. It looks like the shade is old slag glass although I don't know how old it is. ...
  21. Very interesting Vesta. No wonder the face looked familiar since there were so many made. Great Video
  22. I haven't the slightest. Although when they had the bisque heads with the shoulder/chest plate attached it wasn't uncommon for them to be sewn onto other bodies (by a mother or the owner) when the old...
  23. I've been kicking myself for selling this ever since I did....I know he went to a good home though! This was one item I was having an emotional attachment to as it was hard to let it go since it was s...
  24. HAHAHA! We call them cowboy hats!
  25. Another thing that is different about her is her face paint. Look at the eyebrows. They are a single stroke instead of feathered as most kestner dolls. At the doll chat on ebay one person did say th...
  26. Alot of people said they found that kestner, goebel, handwerck , unidentified used this mold number but couldn't find anything else so she may just remain a mystery. Her clothes did turn out lovely th...

  32. My aunt has a weener dog one of these any ideas on how old it is? Very nice I tried to buy this same dog from a lady I worked next to at a street fair....She used it as her tutu and hairbow display an...
  33. I immediately recognized these! I think it was the barber shop up town that used to have one of these in the window. I always wanted to walk past to look at it as a kid. Very neat!
  34. This is so neat! Great find!
  35. Amazing purchase and nice that you have the facts about their history! I love these!
  36. This is awesome! We used to have a guy here in Fort Scott that rode one of these at the Good Ol' Days parade every year. He has a curled mustache and they have a picture on the good ol' days cups that...
  37. Suede on the inside? This is strange! I don't know what that would be used for but I guess not for fire ! LOL
  38. The tub looks like an old cooler since it has a lid but reminds me of the old round wash tubs. Maybe the mystery piece was just for cooking over a fire? Maybe they used a stick or something to lift it...
  39. Here is a link to her book! OMG I can't even believe they still have this book around! http://www.amazon.com/beginners-book-Collecting-bottles-money/dp/B0007FAHWO
  40. This is amazing! My great grandmother and grandmother wrote a book about collecting Bottles and jars way back I believe it was in the 40's or 50's I see new old stock boxes of Ball jars at the auction...
  41. This is an old bed pan Wow nice find! This appears in good condition too!
  42. I do think this is a kestner Doll as I found a description of a kestner doll that had a wooden body which I believe might be what she is. I just still haven't found a picture of this kestner doll to ...
  43. Looks more like a display case from a cathedral or funeral home.
  44. This is the same Mickey watch I had as a kid (I actually just got rid of it ) I believe if I remember right the hands were a different color on the mickey because they were made to be reflective. Goo...
  45. You're Welcome. I hope you find out more about it! The estimate I gave is just what I saw on one of these at an antique store but this one is in far better condition as the other one was rusted pretty...
  46. Brüder Rachmann, Haida. (1874-90 in Germany, 1890-c1945 in Haida. Offices in Berlin and Vienna. It is an antique perfume bottle and as you can probably tell by the brass it is of good quality. They r...
  47. She is 10" long and her body appears to be paper mache' or something. her head is bisque and swivels.
  48. My grandmother had one of these I played with when I was little. It's an old steiff Teddy bear. They originally had a red ribbon/collar around their neck. He appears in good condition. Some of these a...
  49. I used to have all of these. They are the vintage little people. I actually still have these for my son to play with. They are highly collectible though!
