  1. Thank you so much collectorpaul and Falcon 61. This information is quite helpful. I thought the bottle was interesting and cool looking and it sparked my curiosity to learn more. I got this bottle at ...
  2. Cool find! I love the old tools. Folks back in the day knew how to maintain their goods and stuff lasted forever... sure wish we would go back to manufacturing reliable, made to last tools and produc...
  3. That would 'dog-gone' hurt. Sorry, couldn't help the pun...
  4. A google visual search indicates it is late 19th century Victorian mantel clock. Are there any marking such as "Ingraham" or "Sessions" or "Seth Thomas"?
  5. To Watchsearcher: I agree, I've seen many of these benches and this might be the prettiest one I've ever saw. They were very popular when I was growing up too. Our next door neighbor, Mrs. Carter had ...
  6. This is a cool find. We salvaged a hornet's nest from our Bradford pear tree, still attached to the branch. It hangs in our garage to protect it from the elements. We have it near our garage window fa...
  7. Thanks Phil. Do you know approx the year? I only paid $8. so it's not a matter of value, I'm more interested in age. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge.
  8. Just purchased one of these today at an antique store. Check out my post. Yours is beautiful.
  9. Fantastic Find. Your wife sounds like someone I know. Enjoy your find, it is a treasure.
  10. Beautiful!
  11. That is a fantastic carving. I'm sorry I can't help but thank you for sharing.
  12. When I was a youngin' I got stuck in the leg with one. It hit me right on the side of my knee and stuck in there while I was running to get out of the way. I still have the scar, but still, is a fond ...
  13. Thank you for commenting Shan79!
  14. @dave2no1 that's interesting. It didn't occur to me these might not be meant to go together with the bases. One does not quite fit well any way. Thanks for the input.
  15. What a beautiful setting! Love it!
  16. I showed my husband and he agrees with dav2no1, he says it looks like a fly tying vise and then he proceeded to tell me how it works. LOL.
  17. I couldn't resist, It's a vintage 'selfie stick'... I really don't know what it is but that's the first thing that came to mind. Good luck :)
  18. @ hotairfan, 100% agree, buy American, and buy used, vintage, antique etc. They are still useful and far out-perform products 'made in c h i n a' or 'from i k e a' , and buy from small business, yar...
  19. What a beautiful piece. You found a great bargain. It's so cool you took time to clean it up and restore it back to it's original glory. So sad things are no longer produced with such ingenious and cr...
  20. Thank you for sharing this history. I find it so valuable to learn about the history of the pieces, the artist or the origin and age of the vintage or antiques I acquire. While reading this, it was ex...
  21. Onedtent, that's interesting. I collect scales and this is the first one I have of this brand.
  22. Thank you for this information Falcon61. I appreciate your comment and it's cool to hear from someone with real life experience on this item.
  23. Thank you for saving this from the land fills. I think it's a great piece but I don't know it's origin, I just love that you love it.
  24. I have a beige rotary phone I've put on the the top. I'll upload a pic later. I would like to find one even older, and eventually I will.
  25. Beautiful grouping. I like your style and I love doilies too. I pick them up at thrift and antique stores when they are reasonably priced. I put them under a lot of my collections because they protect...
  26. This is a cool item. I've not seen a child sized one that is so realistic and was probably usable and possibly did get used as children helped with multiple chores within the family, as they did it wi...
  27. To: Watchseacher, I have a collection of butter churns as well. The whole process is amazing to me. I'm happy for you to get these memorable items from your granny. That's something to cherish, especi...
  28. Phil, Thank you. I think I misled you on my description. Only the first two images are C.Jere the others are just a few MCM pieces I've acquired. Sorry for the confusion.
  29. Thank you Phil. I appreciate your comment :)
  30. Thank you scottvez. Would you know the age of it?
  31. PhilDMorris. Yes, and they are still useful as well as decorative.
  32. Thank you for your comment, PhilDMorris! I just started collecting them recently. Do you believe I got that slag glass stand for $8.00 at a flea market. It doesn't have all the pieces but the slag gla...
  33. I looked at my warmer again and it is exactly like this one. It has a paper sticker with a bar code and a price on it of $39.95 but I believe when I bought it from the reseller I paid $10.00 or $15.00...
  34. KWQD- Thanks for this information. The warmer is not marked and is not part of the set. I picked it up later and do not have intentions to use it. I just display it in the second cut out on the tea tr...
  35. Hello, thank you for all for all of this information. Today I posted a show and tell of my tea pot. I would love if you could take a look at it and give me your opinion. Thanks in advance.

  37. I don't remember what she said he taught exactly. It's been a few years. I think she may have said science. I've had people say maps and blueprints only. I'm just not sure why the top has the glass se...
