  1. Mount is typical of 1895- 1910 period. Certainly a proud graduate. scott
  2. The focus seems to be on the house AND people (family??). The image shows the entire dwelling-- where they could have been gathered in one spot and photographed easier. I have seen similar views o...
  3. Thanks much pccollector-- I appreciate your kind words. scott
  4. Great looking piece. You don't show any of the construction-- the drawer joints, interior and back would be useful in dating the piece. From what I see, I would think you are about a century off...
  5. The short jacket is called an Ike jacket by collectors. Insignia shows that the wearer earned a combat patch with the 5th Infantry Division (right shoulder) and later served with the 3rd Army (A patc...
  6. Good luck-- I'd be interested in seeing the other images and the feedback from the Museum. scott
  7. You are correct-- size is the determining factor on cabinet vs. cdv. A cabinet card is bigger. I'd like to see the other photos WITH the Meagher ID. I am not a believer in "looks like" identifi...
  8. Interesting image-- looks like an actor in his dress for a part. How was this identified to Meagher? scott

  10. Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and of course Doc Holiday: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Men-Wyatt-Earp-and-Co-unverified-TinType-as-pictured-/262501759862?hash=item3d1e52fb76:g:7aAAAOSwXeJXcoiB "This was a...
  11. Mid to late 20th century Murano-- not sure on the maker. scott
  12. These are available in an almost endless variety! The late 19th/ early 20th century was the heyday for fraternal groups-- with so many groups, lodges, and event badges you can probably assemble a hug...
  13. US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel shoulder boards for the dress mess uniform. scott
  14. Beautiful Welz!! scott
  15. Nice image-- agree the object really "makes" this daguerreotype and sets it apart! I don't believe it is a bowl as there is not any sort of edge to show a lid. Could it be some sort of decorative ...
  16. Amazing glass-- the colors on both are fantastic! scott
  17. GREAT welz!! scott
  18. Probably bone and more recent than what you have posted. I'd think that they were 1960s- 70s time period. scott
  19. Agree US soldiers of the WW1 ERA, give or take a few years. Most of these will have photographer and subject information on the bottom. scott
  20. I would think that photo #2 shows the woman at an older age than #2. scott
  21. Looks to be a Coast Artillery Corps (CAC) insignia. Hard to tell-- a close up would be helpful. If it is CAC, they were around for about the first half of the 20th century. Their main responsibil...
  22. So the photo you have is a snapshot or modern print? As chris stated the original would have been an ambrotype, which puts it about 1854- 1865 in the US. scott
  23. Add some more pictures/ orient them and I will be happy to take a look. Some details like the drawer joints and the back will often show the true age. scott
  24. Original poster can clarify image type by adding a few additional photos that show the entire image. scott
  25. "Finally ... about the hands looking out of proportion ... this is because a wider than normal lens was used on the camera. Normally, a portrait lens (mild telephoto) is used but for some reason the p...
  26. Nope. Nothing that I see in the photo suggests that she is dead. Her eyes are open and there is no rigor in her hands. There are a lot of online myths about pm (post mortem) photography. Here ...
  27. Glad to help out. It is a nice piece, but they are not in style now and can be bought very inexpensively. scott
  28. Your middle photo also shows US Doughboys (Overseas)-- it is especially nice since it shows one wearing a leather jerkin! scott
  29. Victorian "Wishbone Dresser". It dates from about 1860s- 1870s. The base wood where the "wishbone" mirror attaches looks to be walnut. The veneers look to be mahogany and maybe some maple-- h...
  30. I love Victorian silverplate-- very reasonable and such a great variety. The #183 is a production number for your piece. Today collectors call these "Brides Baskets". scott
  31. Great plane. Fantastic work-- the base looks like it could have been original to the plane! scott
  32. All beautiful! scott
  33. Your desk doesn't appear to be antique-- a few pictures of the joints on the drawers and the back should confirm. scott
  34. BEAUTIFUL Welz! scott
  35. Interesting lamps! The 2nd lamp while similar is different from #1 and #3. If you look closely at the base it is NOT rounded as the other two. Additionally, the part where the stand joins the b...
  36. Thanks for looking and commenting mareredware! scott
  37. Should be able to find the patent information on this one. Use google patents and search using the dates. Looks to be MAR or MAY of 1893 or possibly 1883. With a little effort you should be a...
  38. Another GREAT posting to start off the weekend! Keep up the great work-- maybe more will begin to question those attributions that appear on a regular basis withOUT any supportable empirical analys...
  39. Your case is 2-40R Basket of Flowers (Berg). There are a couple of versions of this case. Yours is the most desirable version. I like the rounded cases as they seem to age much better-- less cor...
  40. Nice Civil War image-- a corporal too! What about the thermoplastic case? These nice, no doubt Civil War images are getting much harder to find these days (at reasonable prices). scott
  41. Thanks much for looking frank! scott
  42. Thanks for looking aura and frank! scott
  43. BEAUTIFUL Welz!! scott
  44. Great collection of old cloth-- it will look great framed! I would say that it is a modern assemblage (from old cloth), with the stitching also being done fairly recently. scott
  45. Most Civil War battle consisted of large mass formations, shoulder to shoulder, battling in open terrain. Tactics hadn't changed to reflect the effectiveness of RIFLED weapons and the minie ball, a...
  46. Not an antique. Looks to be a deco inspired china cabinet. Probably from the very late 1930s- 50s. The contrasting veneer woods (light vs. dark) really adds to the appeal. A picture of the entir...
  47. Thanks pc-- I like the hair as well! scott
  48. That is a modern innovation. There was limited use "body armor" going back ages, but it wasn't until modern times that EVERY soldier wore protection. We usually wore flak vests (won't stop a bulle...
  49. Most issue uniforms were thin wool with cotton lining-- very uncomfortable during the summer months. As the war progressed, some soldiers chose to wear simple cotton shirts rather than a uniform ja...
  50. Here is a link that shows paintings of Zouave units in battle. About a handful of images down is a painting of the 9th NY at Antietam: http://civilwartalk.com/threads/keith-rocco-artwork.97756/ ...
