  1. As fhrjr stated your knife is a modern overseas made item. I see similar constructed knives all the time. scott
  2. Could be Johnstown (PA) flood of 1889. scott
  3. Loooking at stereoviews was popular entertainment in the mid to late 19th century. They were sold in sets and individually. Early views are usually found on flat orange and yellow mounts and most ...
  4. Beautiful display and great info for new collectors on the harm of using a real candle! scott
  5. Thanks much moonstone! scott
  6. GREAT grouping! scott
  7. Thanks for looking kivatinitz! scott
  8. Looks like a "craft" project. Similar to what is done at pottery barn today. Individuals would select the type-- pour into a mold, finish and then paint details. We have a Christmas set that my...
  9. I would love to see more of your glass. Also pls update the posting once you are able to talk with Craig at kralik-glass! scott
  10. BEAUTIFUL Glass and GREAT empirical analysis czechfan and kairomalte-- Certainly proof of the saying "the devil is in the detail"! scott
  11. I don't see them anywhere as often as the myriad of "little people", but they are on ebay with some regularity: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Circus-Cdv-Obermuller-son-lady-giant-Miss-Rosa-Wedsted-Kopenh...
  12. Thanks for looking and commenting toni! scott
  13. The frustrations are usually short lived-- another item of similar interest will post to ease any frustrations! Some of my best buys are found on ebay. It just takes a little patience and persiste...
  14. Left side at the bottom is the contact information for kralik- glass. scott
  15. Found this link for you: http://www.kralik-glass.com/frametemplate.html scott
  16. Nice mirror, too! scott
  17. Good points daddy-- I too make 35- 50% offers on overpriced ebay BINs and even some at retail prices. Some sellers are offended (they shouldn't have put "Best Offer") and I get a lot of declined o...
  18. Probably so. Craig Orkney runs the site. He is a great guy with unbelievable knowledge and dedication to documenting Bohemian glass. His methodical analysis and research has been especially enlight...
  19. I have seen this image before. The circus and sideshow "human oddities" were very popular in the late 19th century. These type images also have a fairly strong collector following today. scott
  20. Agree with others-- looks like an example of Welz decor. Welzebub no longer posts-- should be able to contact him through his fantastic web site: www.kralik-glass.com/ scott
  21. Beautiful Welz! scott
  22. Thanks for sharing. With Tiffany a signature is actually a red flag-- there are some examples of valuable antique art glass on here that have been "enhanced" with bogus Tiffany signatures. scott
  23. BEAUTIFUL!! scott
  24. The drawer side and interior looks like 20th century. In the style of... scott
  25. I like the dog (pit bull??) cabinet card! It is worth more than the entire lot price-- good buy. scott
  26. Not a military firearm. Used for personal protection. It is called a percussion box lock pistol. It looks to be original percussion so it dates from about 1850. Online searches for the maker s...
  27. Oak-- this style was popular in the very late 19th- early 20th century. Based on YOUR maker info, this was made during their last few years of production. scott
  28. Concur with others-- modern decorator piece. scott
  29. Great lamp and shades! scott
  30. I did not purchase it. scott
  31. I love this welz decor! scott
  32. I saw this one (ebay??) and thought it was a nice piece. The divisional insignia makes it much more desirable than the typical WW2 "bullet ashtray". scott
  33. I have the same vase-- may have already posted it on CW! It is not fenton. Art glass like this were made by some Czech firms (Harrach) as well as firms in the Stourbridge area of the UK. For ye...
  34. Thanks TGBWC! I stand corrected on my term: It is a Modern FANTASY mirror! scott
  35. Disagree-- others will be along shortly!
  36. Looks like a modern made REPRO Coke mirror. scott
  37. Looks to be a M1860 Staff and Field Officers sword. They are flimsy and purely ceremonial and found useage outside of the military (fraternal groups). These are fairly plentiful and were made from...
  38. Thanks moonstonejr, ian, vetraio and buss. scott
  39. Card grading really changed the hobby. scott
  40. Unfortunately "pack it well" means different things to different folks. As a prior victim of poor packing (several times), I try to follow macart's advice and give specific instructions on how to p...
  41. Thanks sklo, racer, s-to-g, and VO. scott
  42. If you have an interest here are some WW1 propeller pieces that I have posted on CW: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/82782-wooden-propeller-tip-trench-art http://www.collectorsweekly.com...
  43. GREAT trench art-- I am a fan of WW1 propeller pieces as well! scott
  44. BEAUTIFUL inky!! scott
  45. Thanks much for looking david. scott
  46. Thanks for your interest and comments inky and michelle. scott
  47. Great work fhrjr2! Asian furniture is not an area that typically interests me, but the joinery work on this one DOES make it interesting. scott
  48. Thanks for looking and commenting moonstone! scott
  49. I'd identify this one as Harrach. Definitely NOT Italian. Many UK (Stourbridge area) firms made similar wares-- most famously, Stevens and Williams which seems to be the default maker among most g...
  50. Thanks tlmbaran-- thanks for sharing your shell! scott
