  1. Welz made some amazing glass-- your efforts to identify and document their production are equally amazing! scott
  2. Thanks rob-- I appreciate you looking and commenting! scott
  3. Thanks vo-- the subject matter is not something that I see that often. scott
  4. Thanks bruce-- appreciate you looking! Anything to add on this clock or company? scott
  5. It is not 19th century. The back shows that it is a late 20th century buckle. Maybe a metal shop project or small run piece. scott
  6. Link to the same model sold online: scott
  7. My thoughts too. The turns are a little "clumsy" but it has the feel and look in other areas of older glass. scott
  8. Thanks much peggy! scott
  9. Thanks for looking peggy and cultcha! scott
  10. WW1 era press photo from overseas-- probably France. scott
  11. No collector lets the lack of storage space slow down the acquisitions! scott
  12. Beautiful!! Welz made some amazing glass! scott
  13. Great glass! The attribution will stand the test of time-- solid empirical study that SHINES BRIGHT despite the constant muddying of the waters by some folks. Keep up the great work! scott
  14. Agree with justin-- modern repro. Don't see any indications that the pin back is replaced/ updated. scott
  15. Beautiful welz!
  16. Thanks for the information. Let me clarify-- the sharing of the "journey" to the attribution is important. To other collectors/ researchers, it is important to see the SPECIFICS on a particular ...
  17. I don't recognize any specifics on the backdrop. It is pretty typical of late 19th century. Based on the type of image (loose tintype) and clothing, I would date it to the 1880s- 90s time period. ...
  18. Beautiful deco object! Suspect it is some form of cigarette/ tobacco box or dispenser. The biggest indicator of such a use are the removable metal trays-- ash trays. I have seen some very elabo...
  19. Concur-- it is a jewelry box. Some photos of the drawer joints, case with drawers out, and the bottom would be useful in dating. Names and use of objects and can a big difference in values. Tru...
  20. Thanks. Perhaps a posting showing the methodology to the attributions would be helpful. No doubt, I see a lot of similar shapes and decors, just don't see the links to a specific maker. Good ...
  21. Beautiful glass! Czech surely, but what is the ruckl link? scott
  22. From Library of Congress website: "... keep loose tintypes in polyester sleeves, or, if flaking is present, in paper enclosures." Warnings are posted that high humidity may cause emulsions to st...
  23. These type of goggles saw wide distro during Desert Shield/ Storm. scott
  24. Surely worth the $2 investment. I don't see any big time Negro League players signatures, so not a great deal of $. scott
  25. A few comments from another photo collector guy. I have stored tintypes in archival sleeves (poly) for years without any ill effects. I have never encountered images stuck to poly sleeves. I have...
  26. You are correct-- it is Victorian Eastlake. scott
  27. GREAT early stereo and case! scott
  28. Modern FANTASY piece with no collector value. scott
  29. Beauties-- love these figures! Might want to switch photos-- the last photo will attract more attention if bumped to the front. Your current lead photo is hard to discern. scott
  30. Yep-- looks mid to late 20th century to me. scott
  31. MOST of these were created in the 20th century from various unrelated (and lesser quality) pieces. The "creation" and marketing as "Vampire Killing Kits" found lots of buyers when the individual pa...
  32. I don't see a lot of age with this piece. The carving looks very simplistic/ rough/ minimal to no handwork. I would think that this is a 20th century piece. scott
  33. These are fantasy pieces-- never made by Coke. Your mirror was new when purchased. scott
  34. No problem. No reason to stay away-- antique furniture is a great area to collect! Lots of folks on here willing to help out as well. scott
  35. Beautiful-- agree with vetraio on the jade look! scott
  36. The buttons on the front would also preclude it being a nun's habit. scott
  37. GREAT Welz! Pretty solid link to welz through shape and decor. scott
  38. Dovetails are found in modern furniture-- they are often used in better quality pieces. The key is HAND CUT dovetails vs. machine. This piece is mid to late 20th century. scott
  39. Thanks for looking katherine and alan. scott
  40. Thanks for looking rose and alan. scott
  41. Thanks much craig-- always better to show the "data" to back up these attributions! scott
  42. Thanks much for looking smiata! scott
  43. Thanks for looking smiata and michelle! scott
  44. Thanks for looking smiata! scott
  45. Thanks for looking smiata! scott
  46. That is a high price for a single chair-- must have a lot of interest in Eastlake in your area! scott
  47. Agree with verre-- also a picture of the platter itself would be nice to see. scott
  48. Not an antique yet-- the dresser looks to be from the 2nd quarter, 20th century. scott
  49. These are copy images that were enlarged. The process was very popular in the late 19th- early 20th century. Usually some of the details were lost in the enlargement process, so details were drawn...
  50. GREAT decor, love it! scott
