  1. Taking a guess, but I think this is the trademark for Mauser Manufacturing Co., New York, 1887-1903. Take a look on the 925-1000.com site, left column, the second photo for the Mauser mark: http:/...
  2. Superb coffee and tea set, BHock, particularly since you have all five pieces. Here is a very similar set --- with the tray, also numbered 707 --- that sold at Sotheby's in 2010 and they date it "...
  3. They are really beautiful, GlueChip, and particularly extraordinary since you have the pair. Too bad you didn't buy several pairs back in 1955. :-) Is there a mark on the bottom? Since you know ...
  4. antiquerose, my pleasure and a great, unusual family heirloom. Simply by looking at your photographs, I would say that your cup is not silver and if it were, it would be marked. I ran across quite ...
  5. antiquerose, I forgot to say that was a great link you posted. :-)
  6. Your collapsible telescopic cup was manufactured by C. F. Rumpp & Sons, Incorporated, 114-130 North Fifth Street at Cherry Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their trademark is an "R" inside a key...
  7. Hi, scott, and a very belated thank you! Your "rare unpublished image of US Grant" is closer to reality than the plethora of other "wanna be" images for sale online. You gave great information and ...
  8. Beautiful piece of Chinese export silver. vetraio50 sent you to the correct link since your trophy was made by Luen Wo of Shanghai, a well-known silversmith. Here is a larger photo of Wo's mark, right...
  9. A fabulous bracelet! I couldn't find a "KO" trademark in any of my resources. Simply a guess, since I know nothing about jewelry, this Deco machine age form looks German to me. Another poster has t...
  10. Elisabethan, these are just "my observations" and none is meant to determine or give you advice as to the authenticity of your pin. This is best way to learn and it always helpful if you have touc...
  11. "The Gondoliers or The King of Barataria" is a two-act comedy opera by Gilbert & Sullivan. The printer is Stafford & Co., Netherfield, Nottingham: and London, and it's poster number 1368. They printed...
  12. LOL, goodness, I just made a typo to the correction of your typo! The name is spelled Ahrenfeldt
  13. Beautiful plate. Jensen, excellent identification and I am just going to correct what I know is simply a typo. :-) Arenfeldt is spelled AHrendeldt See http://www.collectorscircle.com/bohemian...
  14. Bille [not "Billie" :-) ] Hougart is an expert on Mexican silver marks. He has recently updated "The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks," third edition, May 2013, and a "must have" reso...
  15. A magnificent sculpture and historic photograph. The sculptor was Chester Beach (American, 1881-1956). According to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, "Beach designed coins and created sculptures...
  16. BTW, Jono, I don't know the first thing about antique pocket watches. I simply appreciate how proud you are to own such a beautiful heirloom and gift from your father. :-) All I know is how to find in...
  17. Hi, Jono. My quick, poorly-written post confused you. The serial number you used [629266 ] is for the gold-filled Crescent case, NOT the Hamilton pocket watch; there aren't records to get info on the ...
  18. Very nice, Jono, and the sentimental value makes it priceless. I believe this is a No. 970. If you open the back and get the serial number that is on the movement --- not the case --- you can get i...
  19. Very nice, Jono. Made by Bell Trading Post, Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded by Jack and Mildred Michelson c. 1935 [not certain since several credible Websites state either 1932 or 1935]. Jack Mic...
  20. Hi, I don't know how old yours is or the manufacturer. However, the first collapsible telescopic pocket cup was invented by John Lines of Waterbury, Connecticut, USA, for Scovill Manufacturing Co., pa...
  21. Beautiful pieces, martinla56. This is from the "Transferware Collectors Club Message Board" and I think it will solve your mystery. The answer posted by Andrew Pye sounds spot on as he states t...
  22. Very beautiful and similar in design to these by Hermann Bauer: http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.von-zezschwitz.de%...
  23. It is a variation after a lithograph or chromolithograph published by Muller, Luchsinger & Co. , New York, copyrighted 1901 and titled "On Guard" No. 27. Some examples: http://www.etsy.com/listing...
  24. Very interesting information, to say the least, but I am curious, miKKo. Bill's Belgian Website has photos of two other variations of the same PLAQUE. Since you initially enquired about the PLAQUE, I ...
  25. Hi, Lisa. Beautiful tray and if one owns silverplate, then you can't do better than Elkington. Just a quick bit of info. Are you sure it's plated over copper? Since Elkington developed the process ...
  26. "Lincoln by Fire" by Alfred S. Campbell. From Jack Smith Lincoln Graphics Collection: "Lincoln by Fire. Artist: Campbell, S. Publisher: Campbell Art Company, Elizabeth, N.J. n.d. Hand colored co...
  27. His full name is Joseph High Eagle, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota.
  28. LOL, ... is a "typo."
  29. Correction, sorry it's late. I misspelled Bicknell's name several times --- Bickell is a type.
  30. BP, thanks for scanning it to show the A. H. Bickel printed lower left in the carpet. I don't think there is any question that yours is NOT one of the original prints from 1881 since the pamphlet s...
  31. Lovely, mrgvintage. sharon, here is the certificate that comes with Marena jewelry. source: Let's Get Vintage website http://www.letsgetvintage.com/moreinfo.php?id=178 From the Trademarkia web...
  32. I can't speak to the age, authenticity, or the artist. A wild guess is that what you have appears to be a print and you stated it says "H. Bicknell." It depicts Albion H. Bicknell's work (which was or...
  33. Jason, you are correct, but specifically, T.H.G.E. is the acronym for Thin Heavy Gold Electroplate http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_does_18K_THGE_inside_a_ring_mean As you said, it is plated with...
  34. Scott is the expert here but will just state that Frederick E. Loxley of Cranston, RI, was the chief auditor for the State of Rhode Island. http://books.google.com/books?id=C8ASAAAAIAAJ&q=%22frederic...
  35. I think these are great but unfortunately it appears their value is nominal. Yours has great graphics that distinguishes it from the ordinary. If "Betsy [can't read the name] was someone famous, I wou...
  36. Thanks, oilman, good information. You have become quite a connoisseur. :-) I have never dealt with Matthews but have read about their auctions in "Maine Antique Digest." They do get great prices fo...
  37. I suggest that you email Matthews Auctions, with photos, and get an auction estimate. Remember, condition is a very important factor. They have sold this sign in the past: October 16, 2009, sold fo...
  38. Your family history and collection is incredible. What great photos!
  39. Teresa, here is the "general" rule according to Bille Hougart's "The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks," 2001: "Dating: While dating Mexican silver is problematic, a few general gui...
  40. Here is some information from Mark Rogers's website, The Trayman: "The quality of the manufacturing process can usually be identified by who manufactured the tray. If it is a Chas. W. Shonk tray, y...
  41. This CDV is beyond exceptional. You said it best that the use of blocks to spell out the names is "ingenious." I think what I love even more is that the pull toy horse is named BOB, which is a sto...
  42. Hi filmnet, more great photos. I tried several times, and just now, to post a comment about your group of antique spectacles but for some reason it won't post. So, here is my comment about your col...
  43. The tray you found says it was manufactured by the Standard Advertising Co. http://trayman.net/TrayDetail/Factories/Dicks.htm Here is a tray like yours with the red border. It's an Acrobat file, t...
  44. The flag in the background makes this breathtaking. Another wonderful photo, Scott.
  45. Hi, filmnet, I will give you two good websites for you to research. It's hard to ID them specifically without seeing the details in person. So, you have your work cut out for you. The first site wi...
  46. oops, broke the link above. http://catalog.sonomalibrary.org:8080/ipac20/ipac.jsp?session=13G9222038LF0.8984&profile=hist&uri=link=3100013~!31568~!3100001~!3100002&aspect=subtab27&menu=search&ri=1&...
  47. It's a lovely piece but were you ever able to confirm whether Nason was the designer since Cenedese was unsure? One would think they would know. http://www.fossilfly.com/Forums/showthread.php?t=3822 ...
  48. Scott, you were fortunate to locate the filed patent for the corn popper, which really authenticates the photograph. Great research and observation that there is a slight modification in the one shown...
  49. Correction to # 7: "I looked at what little work I could find by Sabbet and in my opinion the painting shown here has no similarity in style or genre to 'Saibet or Saiber and the picture posted by...
  50. Maura, it's a very pretty lamp and know you will enjoy it. The trademark "Heart Tiffany" was filed on March 26, 1982, but was revoked by the trademark appeals board on May 3, 1985. source: http:/...
