  1. They covered all bases with this one! It looks to be oak and I would think it is solidly in the second quarter of the 20th century. scott
  2. I'd include Mont Joye on the list of possibles. Very beautiful! scott

  4. The shirt looks odd-- the "Carr" on the shoulder "rank" is not something I have seen before on a military shirt. Additionally, the ribbons and badge are on the wrong side. The badge is the Comba...
  5. Thanks much for looking-- for a time, I was fairly active collecting RSP! Here is another piece that may be of interest: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/40827-rs-prussia-reflecting-wat...
  6. Looks good! The swans are a popular RS Prussia pattern-- here is one of mine: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/23350-rs-prussia-swans-celery-dish scott

  8. Glad to help-- does the measurement match for the width? scott
  9. Using the back label to search, I found the Cron-Kills Co. out of Piqua Ohio that produced a Lady's desk N0. 654. I couldn't find a reference picture, but it is described as 32 inch width. If your...
  10. Glad to help-- forgot to add: the stencil MAY help in running down a maker. The wood is W(hite) Oak and the production number of the piece is "Desk No. 654". scott
  11. Great little desk-- looks very useful today. The design of the desk, drawer construction (nailed lap joint), and stencil on the back all indicate 20th century construction. Thanks for sharing! ...
  12. "While an item’s value will sometimes be a part of the conversation, Show & Tell is mostly a forum for communicating with other users, learning from each other, and just having fun!" Many folks on ...
  13. It is American Empire. Probably dates from the 1840s- 70s. The bird's eye maple and mahogany veneers are typical. The contrasts of the drawers (maple and mahogany) and the case wood is really app...
  14. Thanks cultcha. scott
  15. Thanks for looking and commenting celiene-- it really is a remarkable trench art piece. scott
  16. Neat photo. I always thought that Force Recon units were organized as companies-- and operated as platoons/ detachments. Maybe his detachment was assigned to a "3rd Bn". I am an old Army guy but ...

  18. Thanks for the information emma-- I'll have to check out a "Shiva's Eye". scott
  19. Thanks rose-- as always, I appreciate you looking and commenting! scott
  20. Your vase on the far right is DOCUMENTED (B739) in Welz production literature: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/189098-welz-factory-production-literature--pr scott
  21. BEAUTIFUL! Agree with rose, very striking colors. scott
  22. Thanks much nice! scott
  23. Great postcard and glass! Best of luck in kicking the habit-- YOU CAN DO IT! scott
  24. Thanks for looking geodejem-- be sure to check out my other items if you are a fan of trench art! scott
  25. Not sure-- a photo of the back may be helpful in determining era and origin. scott
  26. Do an online search for "Civil War US buckle" and it will be obvious. Originals are lead filled. scott
  27. The stars represent different designated campaign periods. scott
  28. Your photograph is actually a cabinet card. From what I can see, I would suspect that the man is African American as well-- just a little lighter skin color than his wife. Too bad about the cond...
  29. Supposed to be a whale tooth. Looks odd to me. A photo of the bottom/ inside would be helpful to determine of it is real or a modern resin piece. scott

  31. GREAT Vietnam item! scott
  32. Nice "Full Dress" uniform coat. Amazingly, these are very similar to the 19th century versions and ones in current use! scott
  33. This was new when given. The front is similar to a Civil War buckle-- the back is completely different. Do you know the name of the general who presented this? scott
  34. Left to right on Medals: Legion of Merit (LM), Meritorious Service Medal (MSM), Army Commendation Medal (ArCOM), National Defense Service Medal (NDSM), Korean Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Un...
  35. Clarification-- I left a key word out: "Awarded by the S Korean government and NOT specific to the KW..."
  36. Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation. Awarded BY S. Korean government and specific to the Korean War-- can be still awarded today. Your examples both appear to be 1950s vintage. It is e...
  37. "You guys're joking, right??? Animosity, still, in 2016?!!?" Most of the animosity is tied to "revisionist history". scott
  38. It is a modern piece. Looks to be solid wood. If you like it and can use it, I'd certainly replace the glass and use it! scott
  39. The back of #4 (RPPC) may indicate region or country of manufacture-- what is on the back? scott
  40. It is not by Tiffany. scott
  41. Another beauty from welz!! scott
  42. I really like the daguerreotype that you used to illustrate the hair style! Do you look for images to illustrate period features of your dolls? scott
  43. Glad to help out-- welcome to CW and thanks for sharing! scott
  44. Not sure on the maker. These type of chairs are called "press back". They are not carved. A large steel die was PRESSED into the wood to leave a 3D design in the chair. This type of chair was al...
  45. Also-- if you change your photos and shift #2 or #3 to the first photo; this might receive more interest/ comments. scott
  46. Nice solid wood desk. Based on the knobs and what I can see of the construction, I'd put it in the 2nd quarter, 20th century. scott
  47. Thanks martika and tom. scott
  48. Thanks martika. scott
  49. Glad to help out-- celiene is deserving of most of the thanks for the id on photo #1. I agree with you on the last image-- don't see an asian man either. scott
  50. I think this was a homemade piece-- not a retail item. scott
