I grew up in Connecticut in house that was built in 1769. - I believe that sparked my interest in antiques/vintage items. I have to admit however, I do not know much about any particular thing. We cleaned out my grandmother's estate and my parent's storage barn and I have/had some pieces that I wanted identified and could not find anything on them. I stumbled upon this website and posted some items. I appreciate all the feedback I have received. This is a great site with great knowledgeable people. Thank you everyone! (Read more)

  13. Thank you again nutsabotas6! I would think a necklace but the chain is soldered every two inches with a piece of gold metal, so you cannot get it over your head. Wearing it as a choker, it really do...

  19. Thank you TubeAmp! That's fascinating!! I never knew they existed
  20. Thanks TubeAmp! I never heard of a thread desk. I had to look it up!! I never, in a million years, would have figured that out. Thanks again!
  21. Great idea shareurpassion!! I am just curious of its origin. We've had it for years and I wonder what it was used for.
  22. Slackjack - I know that there are pieces/slats that fit over the top drawers when you open the cover. I think only a few of them may be original. I am not really sure how to place them. I will try ...
  23. I also found the number 809 on it between where the table folds down.

  29. This happens to be a paper print and it is signed by Stephen Lyman himself before he passed away - his original signature - not by his wife.
  30. Thank you Katherinescollections. We are moving and I am not sure if they are coming with me or not!
  31. I just added a picture with the shade. I believe it is the original shade along with the original finial on top. I would love to know something about this lamp!
  32. Is this a Bohemian Moser tea set? I have seen a few similar ones advertised and that was what they were called. Does anyone know? Just curious....
  33. Thanks cristiehenry. I just logged on to this site after 2 years!! It is a piece that we use every day. My sister has another one quite similar. It weighs a tone!! Mine has been primed because it ...

  36. Thank you for the information mustangtony. You are right, it is an 1894 O. How do you determine the Mint State? Would I take it to a coin collector for that? - Or would it tell me in a book? I kn...

  46. You're welcome :) That's funny - I these figurines were placed on a shelf by the sink in my grandmother's kitchen. I could remember staring up at them, wanting to play with them, when I was a child....
