  1. Thanks kerry-- I got into glass about 20 years ago. The glass bug hit me hard. If you look at my other items-- I have a lot of it posted here! Most glass collectors have at least one story of bre...
  2. Thanks much rick! scott
  3. Thanks much rick and vetraio! scott
  4. Love these and the other versions (tank is what I see often). They were made in many colors and part of showing support for the War effort on the homefront. I am always amazed at the seemingly...
  5. Thanks sklo and michelle-- I really like the flower as well! scott
  6. Thanks for looking and commenting ian! scott
  7. Thanks much for looking moonstone, ian and alan. scott
  8. Nice enamel work-- I don't see enamel much with welz. scott
  9. Thanks moon-- trying to beat my record for quickest posting? scott
  10. Nice frame-- I have seen these frames before. The screws appear to be later reinforcement. I'd call it more "folk art" than Civil War "prison art" unless there is specific provenance/ documentat...
  11. It is a desk-- drawer shows hand dovetailed joint (19th century). The center lock (on desk top) looks to be reworked. Hard to say if anything else has been redone. Additional pictures of the bott...
  12. I never heard the odd/ even serial number ID. Much easier to just look at what you have. If you do an image search for "m1862 colt police" you will see many examples. Here is one: http://www...
  13. Most distinguishing feature on a Police model is the fluted cylinder. The Navy models don't have fluted cylinders (yours). scott
  14. The most noticeable difference is this netsuke has no reservoir to store water-- original poster can clear up quickly by confirming that there are two connected holes vice any water storage area. ...
  15. ... and netsukes! scott
  16. Nice table. Not an antique-- I would think it dates to the late 20th century. A photo of the entire underside with attachment should confirm. Certainly worth more than the $2 price. scott
  17. It is a netzuke-- kyra's link will be helpful. scott
  18. It is Eastlake style. The marble top inset into the wood is not something that I typically see in pieces from the era. An in person examination would certainly reveal if it has age. Some are...
  19. Fantastic that you have one with a family connection! Please share yours when you have the time. scott
  20. Not much-- maybe a $1 or $2, if you can find a buyer. It is a nice card, but not really a high demand pc. ebay closed auctions will give you a better idea. scott
  21. Nice souvenir stein. Not hand carved-- mold poured. Most of these are post WW2-- the bottom marks (not clear enough for me to see) may give you a better idea. scott
  22. Nice image-- rppcs of this era and earlier have seen dramatic increases in collector interest and values. scott
  23. Interesting photo. 2 very popula collectible areas in one-- baseball and railroad! scott
  24. Same question-- style looks more typical of 1950s+. scott
  25. Thanks harbor and rust. scott
  26. It is not a US military hat. The insignia on the front is odd-- some of it could be later additions. Most military clothing makers also supplied fraternal groups-- I would think that this is fra...
  27. Doesn't look like a Native American blanket. scott
  28. Interesting clock. Can't see the dial-- who is the maker? scott
  29. Thanks for looking kkpraft. scott
  30. Nice locket. The young man's image looks to be a tintype. Based on his clothing, I would date the image to the late 1850s- 60s. Also, the lithograph behind the tintype is Civil War era. I don'...
  31. Great welz! scott
  32. Your postcard is an early divided back postcard and would date from the very early 20th century. The design on the card is also typical of the same era, so I would think that the card is from 1912....
  33. Thanks roy, harbor, kerry and kkpraft! scott
  34. Great table. It is Victorian Eastlake and dates from 1870s- 90s. scott
  35. Looks to be a modern decorator piece (bright colors, modern frame...). If it were authentic, 19th century it would carry a HUGE price tag! scott
  36. A close up of the top of the piece or a drawer front may be useful in determining the wood type. Current photos don't show the wood grain. scott
  37. Thanks gatekeeper. Online tools makes it much easier. The "game" has changed dramatically-- 25 years ago, I would have to wait several months on National Archives paperwork. scott
  38. LOVE the decor-- and the welz label as well! scott
  39. Thanks for looking kiva. scott
  40. Thanks for looking nobucks and fort. scott
  41. Thanks for looking and commenting pc. scott
  42. Nice cabinet-- not yet an antique (100 years old). I would date it to the 2nd quarter, 20th century. scott
  43. Thanks for looking tom and vo! scott
  44. Cannot see any details. Some better resolution photos would be helpful. I'd be surprised if it didn't have hand cut dovetails-- as the style/ what I can see would lead me to believe 1830s- 60s. ...
  45. Thanks for looking and commenting caper. I really like patent/ invention images. scott
  46. Thanks. I like to think we make our own luck! I knew who he was prior to purchase, but the Andersonville connection was a later, pleasant surprise. scott
  47. Great sign and beer! scott
  48. Agree with ta-- I have an idea on it but additional photos are needed. scott
  49. Looks like a print of an earlier letter of some significance. The "signatures" and the persons "stamp" don't show any color variations that would be expected of an actual document. Additionally,...
  50. Don't limit yourself-- the photos are great. Just like all areas, don't always believe what you see online (esp. ebay sales). scott
