  1. Great job saving an antique. I am not a fan of painting furniture, but the piece was SAVED and is now being used and probably cherished by the young couple you gave it to. Down the road, someone...
  2. Here is a modern era trench art helmet that may be of interest: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/17175-trench-art-painted-iraqi-fedayeen-helmet scott
  3. Don't know anything about points, but did find the guesses and language annoying! scott
  4. Thanks lisa and fran. scott
  5. Thanks fran, rose and katzl. scott
  6. recordplayer-- in addition to researching, reading about and HANDLING antique guns, you might want to take a look at the forum rules to ensure your comments are in compliance. scott
  7. I have never focused on shotguns, tobacco; but I do believe that there are many spurious examples with the "Richards" name. Other than saying it is an antique shotgun, I wouldn't want to commit to ...
  8. Your assessment of antique firearms is off. Research and handling of these goes a long way in assisting in correctly identifying. scott
  9. Glad to help. I would echo with buss' caution about shooting. I wouldn't try a modern shotgun shell in it. Looks like a nice wall hanger. scott
  10. It is late 19th century. scott
  11. It is a firing shotgun and NOT a replica. Buss had it correct. There was a substantial use of shotguns by the military prior to Viet Nam. scott
  12. OK-- I looked again. It looks like it was in relic condition before the painting. scott
  13. Interesting-- is it a full size helmet. Maybe just odd perspective with your hand but it looks tiny. The painting is a modern creation. scott
  14. Thanks for looking lori. scott
  15. Thanks pat and david. scott
  16. Pet images are highly collected. Those with the owners are most common, it is much more unusual to find just the pet. scott
  17. Looks to be late 19th century-- I would put it in the 1870s. scott
  18. Thanks for looking and commenting va! The poster is fantastic. scott
  19. Glad to help you out-- post the whole piece when you have a chance! scott
  20. Thanks pat and moonstone! scott
  21. Thanks ron and rust. scott
  22. Thanks geode and moonstone. scott
  23. Thanks for looking pat and jewels. scott
  24. It is a beauty! I love glass with applied fruit and flowers. Looks to be Harrach. I have some similar posted. scott
  25. I hate to crash the party on this item, but I suspect it is a post Civil War style chair. The chair construction, wicker seat/ back and small hand push wheel are all indicators (TO ME) of a post CW...
  26. Neat image. Servants, yes-- slaves, NO. SA was part of the British Empire and as such slavery was abolished in the first half of the 19th century (not sure of exact year). Nonetheless, I would ...
  27. Thanks for looking moonhill. scott
  28. Thanks much for looking robin! scott
  29. I don't know which form is more common as I rarely see any available. My vase is less squatty in appearance-- the photos are at a bad angle. I collect photos but can't take them! scott
  30. Thanks again, pat. Copy Images are my favorite to collect. They are usually very reasonably priced. Many folks don't even know what they are or how to identify them. I often see other imag...
  31. Beautiful vase with great information on the piece! scott
  32. I may need to send some your way. I ran out of shelf space a few years ago and it seems to be everywhere now! scott
  33. Thanks for your appreciation of this unusual COPY IMAGE pat! scott
  34. Nope-- much later. The hat itself is very late 1890s at the earliest. Also looked again--the MO buttons appear to be an add on. They are holding the band together-- small leather pieces are mis...
  35. Here is a COPY IMAGE that I have posted of a Civil War soldier. This style cabinet card was not made until post Civil War and actually dates from the 1880s: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories...
  36. I deal in antique images full time. Don't understand the rest of what you are trying to say. Since you don't like help, suggest that you don't ask for it. Thought you were trying to learn abo...
  37. Thanks for looking surf and fran. scott
  38. It is for something other than SP RR. Most RR conductor hats will have "conductor" spelled out. Additionally, most common is a full hat badge with the name of the RR above the position. Addit...
  39. Thanks moonstone. scott
  40. Thanks tom and david. scott
  41. Thanks bratjdd and moonstone. scott
  42. I'd call it a spool leg. Barley twist is a different style of turning where the turn is continuous up the leg. scott
  43. Signatures are stamped, not hand signed. scott
  44. Thanks surf and rose. scott
  45. Thanks much kyra and fort. scott
  46. Thanks fluffy and kyra. scott
  47. I am not sure on the wood buss-- sorry can't be more helpful. scott
  48. Thanks musik and kyra. scott
  49. Thanks for looking and commenting eric! I'd love to see some of the photos from your father's collection, when you have the time. scott
  50. Thanks much solver. It is GREAT to see you on here again. I appreciate your help and will take a look at the source you found. Don't be a stranger-- I and many others appreciate your help on he...
