  1. Phil, I enlarged the photo and replaced it. You should be able to see it better now. I'll just measure the shade area of the lamp to determine how tall the shade should be and buy one I think would ...
  2. Phil, what kind of lamp shade did it have (what shape and how big)?
  3. Oh thank you so much Phil....so glad to know more about this lamp. What kind of crystals hung from it? I can see the crystals hanging from the bottom half of the curly areas but there are holes in t...
  4. Caralynn, have you progressed with the refinishing of this chair? I have one similar I just posted recently. "Antique Chair". I removed all the webbing, burlap and springs from mine. I also remove...
  5. I'm not surprised at all that the vanity has lasted. Back in the day, the construction was superb, materials used were strong and natural (not pressed board made by man) and were designed beautifully...
  6. I cleaned up the hardware and was pleasantly surprised to see what they look like. I will post another picture in a different entry so you can all see it.
  7. Hi Antiquerose. The link you provided is very interesting. The only thing missing is the price paid for it. Would like to know what someone paid for it.
  8. Thanks so much for the info. I was thinking that it was from the 20s because I researched the drawer pulls and found them on a website that sells antique hardware and they claim the pulls were circa...
  9. Here's a latch that looks similar to the one on your trunk. http://www.kennedyhardware.com/brass-trunk-latch.html
  10. Hey, maybe you could help me identify these boxes: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/122934-tramp-art-boxes?in=user
  11. It's the dump in Phelan, CA. Find the I40, head west thru NM, AZ, CA. Stay on the 40 til you get to the I15 south. Go about 40 miles, hang a right on Palmdale Blvd, make your way thru the desert t...
  12. Well, I must say that last weekend I seriously tried to start work on this but it was impossible for me to even get started on it. The fact that the one hinge on the door (left side in pic) was bro...
  13. This is just an opinion but it looks to be home made. The etching on the front could have been made by a very skilled person using a wood burning kit but, more than likely, it was carefully etched wi...
  14. Is the lock itself stamped with the mfr? If so, you can look up the lock mfr's history. Would love to see pics of the inside of it too.
  15. Haha, Vintage...I plan on doing just that...keeping it. Those front panels look like they were pieced together so the "waistline" is a deliberate act on the part of the maker.
  16. Oh thank you Scott. The man I bought it from said it had been in his family for a "very long" time so, in his mind, 74 yrs would be a long time, if this piece was made in 1940. Thanks for properly d...
  17. In addition to this tragic story, the magazine also features and introduces the brand new fashion model.....Twiggy....to the world. Pictures of her are amazing.
  18. Honderich Furniture Company is based in Canada. OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE the holes in cremation urn comment. Thank you SO MUCH for the laugh out loud Fhr... Well if it was a gimmick that someone paid e...
  19. Looks like it has a price tag on it for $780.
  20. Lane cedar chests have a style # and a serial # stamped on the bottom. The serial # tells the date of manufacture. At first the serial # was 6 digits long, then increased to 7 digits. The number is...
  21. What a gorgeous piece of furniture. Drooling here.
  22. Oh my goodness, what a magnificant piece.
  23. Wowow, incredible work.
  24. http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/5pehJ90hD3IUbuH1T8Sp1g.jpg
  25. Thanks Nuts....I agree with you that the original tone of the camphor wood is gorgeous. The Old English polish just darkened it a little. It's still basically the original color. I do notice that ...
  26. As you can see in picture #3, there is some hardware that is missing from the doors of this wardrobe. I need suggestions on what kind of hardware I should look for. Do I concentrate on Asian influe...
  27. This is absolutely gorgeous. I'm drooling........
  28. WOWOWOWOWOWOW, this is fabulous. Love the base.
  29. Hi fhr... Thank you so much for responding. Well slap me for not putting up the dimensions. They are: 42.5" wide x 18" tall x 18" deep. If I measure the outside of the lid, it makes the chest...
  30. Thank you so much Hmsantiquetrunks. I appreciate your expertise so much.
  31. I don't know for sure. The trunk is tucked away in a corner now. I will have to move stuff to get to it and will examine it closer to determine if the leather IS the hinge or it's covering the hinge...
  32. I posted better pictures today 1.8.14 Trunkman....
  33. That is a Yale and Towne lock. Here is the history of the company: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yale_(company)
  34. There's a St. Albans, NY, St. Albans, Virginia, St. Albans, Vermont. Wonder if any of these towns catered to the military.
  35. Really interesting piece you have there. Oh, if these could talk, they'd have stories to tell about where they've been.
  36. Dan, in the third pic you can see the nails that were used to attach the hardware. In person, they appear to be very very old nails which tells me this trunk was made at the turn of the century 1900+...
  37. Hi Dan, I tried getting the "history" of the trunk from the seller. He didn't say much about it at all. You would think he would have told me how they acquired it, when they got it, etc. Nope. It ...
  38. Hi Trunkman, sorry for the delay in responding. The computer has been giving me a hard time lately. Guess it's time to get a new one. Thank you so much for the compliment. I thought it might be ...
  39. This one is fabulous too. Boy, I can see where I am going to learn TONS from this website. So glad I stumbled on it.
  40. Wow, beautiful trunk and excellent work you did. Love it.
  41. Removal of the paint was a pain.....and I used a lot of swear words aimed at the person who painted it originally. I used a strong stripper (gel form, not liquid) applying it to a small area, letting...
