  1. Thank you, eye! And thanks to everyone for the loves!
  2. That's awesome. I made a walnut base for a 36 Olds mascot that I had, unfortunately it wasn't lighted. Beautiful piece!
  3. They would look great on the aluminum tree we got this year with a color wheel. Sweet! I have a bunch like that I got from my parents.
  4. Maybe! Thanks valentino, and thanks for all the loves!
  5. I think it's bakelite And I can't believe it's not butter!!! LOL

  11. Thanks vetraio50 and Peasejean55. I just added a 4th pic with the attribution I found on 925-1000.com I'm still not positive what the date is. I appreciate all the help everyone here always gives when...

  22. Thanks for all the loves!
  23. Thanks Manikin and cgman0007!
  24. Thanks, Jewels!
  25. That might work, share, but the new ones are not foam, they are a batting like you's find in a chair seat. It doesn't hold pins well. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  26. Thanks, Jewels! do you know about when they were made? Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  27. Awesome, and you can tell it's an original. Look at the back of the steering wheel. I don't know how many times I got my fingers caught in the groove in that stamped wheel. These days they'd throw you...
  28. Thanks for the comment, kyratango! You have some cool stuff too! I love the opal ring.
  29. That's a beauty! Almost like being under the ocean, or a Hubble picture of a nebulae
  30. It must be amazing, eye4. I have seen a few dresser jars like this, but the hand mirror must have been awesome!
  31. Well, share, it seems to be 3350, the last number of the stamp didn't come out well. The one I saw on Ebay was the same. It must be fairly rare. I Googled Boucher necklace, and most of the images that...
  32. Thanks DarlingMara, that's what struck me about it too! Shareurpassion, it says Boucher, and the model #, 33 3?. I'll have to get it out and put it under the loupe.
  33. A couple, eye, not many out there with the Guilloche enamel. A bunch of plain sterling ones though
  34. I like mine better! It's older and in better shape, and the top is heavier, and I didn't pay nearly that much for it!!! Thanks again eye!
  35. I do believe you've struck it squarely on the noggin, eye. Thanks!!!!!
  36. 6 3/4" eye. You still might be right. I'm going to look with that parameter. Thanks!
  37. Thanks, eye. it was just a guess, but I notice when you've been around a while the guesses become more and more accurate. Learning at my age? Holy cow!!!

  39. Thanks for the Loves, folks!
  40. Thanks, Sean!
  41. Thanks, Sean!
  42. Sweet piece!
  43. I love the old fans, made before it was a capitol offense to make something it was remotely possible to hurt yourself on because you were too DUMB not to stick your fingers in a moving fan blade! Nice...
  44. Thanks, shareurpassion!. I appreciate your calling my attention to this piece again. It made me see how bad the pics were, so I too a couple of more! They show the color and shine much better! I paid ...
  45. Awesome piece. The graining on the doors almost looks like a kneeling nude
  46. Looks to be early 1900s. Beautiful Quartersawn oak and a nice carved seat!
  47. Certainly a beauty!
  48. Very cool!
  49. That's a beauty!
  50. The folks around here use a similar gadget to shuck corn.
