  2. Yep, vintage I really like them, and they glow well!
  3. Very cool rocker! Wish mine were uranium.
  4. Thanks rocker! Going to check yours now
  5. That's really cool. I always liked those stapled repairs. Nobody bothers anymore!
  6. Yep. I have a piece of Roseville that needs to be done too!
  7. LOL I do that all the time, Eye... At least I usually make sense to my self... Sometimes, anyway!
  8. I don't think so, Eye4. The location and size would make it hard to remove without losing the pen rest on that side. I don't think it's a really valuable piece, I just like the color and design. Thank...
  9. Thanks for the loves everyone!
  10. Thanks Phil! It might be. And thanks for the loves everyone!
  11. It looks like brass Sinder. Very nice!
  12. Thanks for all the help and knowledge everyone! I just realized this is my 200th post.
  13. Thanks, scott. I only paid a buck for it. From a jewelry dealer no less! It has found a good home. I don't think I'll sell it.
  14. Considering it was made by Ostby & Barton, and it's age, do you think it would be worth cleaning and fixing?
  15. Thanks, Scott. I thought it looked older!
  16. Delahaye always made the most beautiful cars. I'm not sure who designed them, but they were a genius!
  17. Exactly, eye4! I just had to buy 2 more display boxes, I have stuff all over my desk that I have not put out yet! Speaking of which, if anyone knows where I can get 8 x 14 1/2 x 3/4 glass covered disp...
  18. Thanks, aghcollect!
  19. I'm really not sure, eye4beauty. It goes with my enamel collection, but I don't have any other small bottles like this. It's just in my collection for now, I like the items with a story behind them.
  20. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  21. Thanks for the loves everyone!

  25. Thanks for the loves, aghcollect and eye4beauty!
  26. Thanks for all the loves, everyone!
  27. That's a great price. Did you realize that the glass fro most Farber Brothers was made by Cambridge? My wife like the Cobalt best.
  28. The Chrome Craft collectors guide calls it a Bitters Bottle, and it was only available in Amber, Forest Green, Amythest and Royal Blue
  29. Sweet! Farber stuff is so cool, as well as practical. We always use it around the holidays, the colors really pop with a white tablecloth!
  30. I wasn't grading on technique, just the device :-)
  31. blushes... Thanks, eye I love finding stuff out!
  32. Where did you find it, jfichera? I live in that area. That's a cool piece, and there were a bunch of blacksmith shops around.
  33. Here you go... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIb39_5Sh2o

  43. I didn't know if, since he was the art director for 25 years, (and if he was still around), if he might know something about the pic. I've had my answers turn up in weird places!
  44. I looked up the company on the stamp, and found this article. Pretty cool! http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1291&dat=19840805&id=SqZYAAAAIBAJ&sjid=xYwDAAAAIBAJ&pg=3777,886347
  45. This is a great clock, I love the style! I'd also like to ask you a question: I picked up a Numechron Tymeter Television clock, and the motor is dead. Do you know where I might find a replacement? Tha...
  46. No, Elizabethan, I never did. Just enjoying the beauty. Thanks for the comment.
  47. Wow, that is a beaut!
  48. Restoreafinish works well, you can find it in most antique stores. You have to be careful with veneers, they can peel. Also, I don't think Stickley used veneers, they were mostly solid wood. Very nice...
