  1. Thanks for looking try. RLTW! scott
  2. Yep-- the Empire style caught on in many countries in the mid 19th century. scott
  3. Glad to help out. These early chests really stand the test of time. I have several that we use regularly and they hold up very well-- just show the character of 150+ years of life! Now is the t...
  4. Suggest you move your last picture to the lead picture and you will get more attention. scott
  5. BEAUTIFUL!! American Empire chest that dates from about 1830s- 1850s. The maple really stands out against the cherry base. I have a several similar pieces. Great solid furniture that will last s...
  6. I'll highlight details once the pictures are posted. scott
  7. "It is a penney machine restored to the coke theme when I bought it." Not restored to.... the coke theme is pure FANTASY! scott
  8. Doesn't look to be anywhere near that old-- looks to be 20th century. Patent #589 is for a "force pump" for water-- nothing related to a desk or any other related items. Some CLOSE UP photos of ...
  9. Pictures on the stein are the Great Seal of the United States (front and back)! scott
  10. Looks like an aluminum casting. Is the interior rough/ cut out looking or similar to the outside? Maybe a metal shop project that wasn't finished as the casting roughness still shows on the base. ...
  11. A shame about the damage (typical of these), but it still is a SPECTACULAR display! scott
  12. Thanks smiata and racer! scott
  13. 1870- 1890s. scott
  14. Looks to be Victorian Eastlake dating from about 1879- 1890s. scott
  15. Beautiful! scott
  16. No visible rank-- the same type uniform would be worn by officers from 2LT thru COL. scott
  17. US Army Officer Dress Green Uniform. Not WW2 era-- these were the standard dress uniform from the late 1950s and were just phased out a few years ago. scott
  18. Beautiful Welz decor in a FANTASTIC Shape! scott
  19. Blakeman & Henderson as manikin stated. Some debate as to them being a decorating company (using blanks) or just an exporter. Mary Frank Gaston's book on Limoges may provide the answer-- probably...
  20. Thanks for looking clockerman. scott
  21. Nice set. I see them with some regularity-- but most often an individual piece or two. It is unusual to have a complete set. Most likely made in the EARLY 20th century at the LATEST. A photo o...
  22. Nice image. Nice painted wood barber pole. I am not sure when the revolving poles were first used. scott
  23. Your buffet, sideboard, server dates from the 2nd quarter, 20th century. Probably part of a larger set as the buffet was piece #5. It looks to have missing sections of veneer? A professional re...
  24. Great history lesson-- not an incident that I had heard of before. The photo depicts the forces sent to restore order: "I.N.G. HDQTRS at Jail"-- translation is "Illinois National Guard Headquarter...
  25. If that is the attribution link-- an eyeball recalibration needs to be scheduled! scott
  26. There is no "left" combat patch-- it is called a unit patch. As I said in post #5: "Recently the Army went back to allowing sew on badges..." The complaint was that the only authorized versions...
  27. Please share! scott
  28. Some units do wear sterile uniforms. Also, velcro makes it easier when you change units. In the past, you had to cut off patches/ tabs and then get new ones sewn on. Much easier process with velc...
  29. Thanks michelle and roy! scott
  30. I think you'd get several times that from a decorator! While it wasn't what you originally thought, I wouldn't call you a sucker on this buy. Good luck! scott
  31. Sounds like it was misrepresented by the seller (and not necessarily intentional). May want to go back to the seller and ask for a refund. Show them the issues-- in my experience MANY dealers wi...
  32. I don't like it nor do I see a lot of age on it as a complete chest. The wood does show age-- worm holes and water damage, but the locations are odd. Why would there be water damage on the interio...
  33. Remember.... women don't have a vote! Don't know that they were even allowed into the town meeting. At least the trough gives some slight protection from the dirt street laden with animal droppi...
  34. Neat image. Don't know that there is anything to get in the photo. Just an exterior view of a lunch room with a water pump out front. Don't see anything odd about the kids standing on it so they ...
  35. Thanks kaput. scott
  36. Great educational posting-- love the revolver key! scott
  37. Looks like average quality example from the mid to late 20th century. What little decorator value it had is erased by the damage. scott
  38. Water pump with a hollowed out wood log trough. scott
  39. Mid to late 20th century electric table lamp. scott
  40. Nice medal in good condition. These are not number traceable to a specific veteran. scott
  41. Thanks for looking p.... scott
  42. Great posting-- kerry's response says it best! scott
  43. I'd think a little earlier-- more deco inspired in overall shape and appearances. Thanks for sharing! scott
  44. Nice posting and headgear. I am not that familiar with this model-- prices always kept me at a distance! Thanks for sharing. scott
  45. Thanks chris, kerry and fort! scott
  46. HOO-AH, vo! It certainly is one of the hardest Army schools. scott
  47. Eastlake style. While there were differing qualities in the Victorian era, the light cuts and minimal ornamentation is more suggestive of a later "in the style of" piece. Need more pictures to d...
  48. This one dates from the early 1990s. The basic tab is the same-- most from today have velcro backing for attachment. Recently the Army went back to allowing sew on badges, but believe the tabs...
  49. Pure modern decorator piece. Similar items were/ are still retailed at Hobby Lobby and similar stores. Might find one on ebay-- some online searches might help in the acquistion. scott
  50. Some sort of pathfinder badge. The wing and torch is in the US Army Pathfinder badge. Pathfinders are used to mark and run drop zones (DZ) for Airborne Operations and landing/ pickup zones (LZ/ PZ...
