  1. 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
  2. Nice pinback! scott
  3. Concur with others-- modern decorator piece. scott
  4. Ok-- thought there was more to it. Sterling silver was common on WW2 pieces. scott
  5. Great lamp and shades! scott
  6. I am a militaria collector and have a lot of sweetheart items-- several on this site, if you look at my other items. My first reaction on this was that it was 50s- 60s, but after looking at the blo...
  7. I did not purchase it. scott
  8. I love this welz decor! scott
  9. 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
  10. 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...
  11. Thanks TGBWC! I stand corrected on my term: It is a Modern FANTASY mirror! scott
  12. Disagree-- others will be along shortly!
  13. Looks like a modern made REPRO Coke mirror. scott
  14. 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...
  15. Thanks moonstonejr, ian, vetraio and buss. scott
  16. Card grading really changed the hobby. scott
  17. 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...
  18. Thanks sklo, racer, s-to-g, and VO. scott
  19. 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...
  20. GREAT trench art-- I am a fan of WW1 propeller pieces as well! scott
  21. BEAUTIFUL inky!! scott
  22. Thanks much for looking david. scott
  23. Thanks for your interest and comments inky and michelle. scott
  24. 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
  25. Thanks for looking and commenting moonstone! scott
  26. 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...
  27. Thanks tlmbaran-- thanks for sharing your shell! scott
  28. This bs is called revisionist history and usually cares the garbage claims that slavery was not the underlying cause of the REBELLION! scott
  29. Nice 19th century Windsor chair! scott
  30. Hope you had a great 4th chris! We carried these during Desert Storm in the 101st ABN (AASLT). scott
  31. BEAUTIFUL!! scott
  32. Thanks for looking amber! scott
  33. Thanks for looking buss. scott
  34. Great shell, the artwork does make it more valuable than the standard one. I think that it was well worth the price. Here is one of mine with similar lettering (last fired on VJ Day): http://...
  35. Beautiful! scott
  36. Glad to hear that-- usually the bs stories are used to justify an inflated price on the item! Because of the condition, the value is silver scrap. scott
  37. Thanks for looking catteann. scott
  38. All Beautiful! scott
  39. Beautiful Welz-- esp. the handled vase! scott
  40. Thanks for looking vintage! Check out my other postings for similar trench art miniatures. scott
  41. Thanks for looking battlegear. I have a painting that was done by the same artist-- check my other items if you have an interest. scott
  42. For years anything with applied flowers has been labeled Stevens and Williams(by many general antique dealers). Ebay searches for S& W will show many similar examples. These pieces were made by se...
  43. I believe it is sold throughout the US. I drink it in TN-- a GREAT beer! scott
  44. Love it! Concur with Welz attribution. scott
  45. A beautiful Welz example! scott
  46. These type of items are called Trench Art. Craonne was a city in N. France. I am a trench art collector-- take a look at my postings to see some of my collection. Here are some of my artillery sh...
  47. It is a service flag-- to show that a loved on was serving in the armed forces. These had their beginnings during WW1 and were very popular during WW2. During our recent "Wars", they have once aga...
  48. Looks like a real gun to me. Photo is typical of early 2oth century-- approx 1915- 1930. scott
  49. Thanks for sharing your stories! scott
  50. WW1 US Army soldiers-- back is typical of European product. scott
