  1. Nothing gets past the staff of our local thrift store - only one! I swear they stand by the door with a loupe up to their eye. Congratulations on finding this chain, for such an incredibly low price. ...
  2. 'Hamilton' seems to be the largest manufacturer of type cabinets. I'd go to eBay and do a search on Hamilton Cabinets; Type Cabinets; Type Setters Cabinet etc. and see what's out there.
  3. Hi Tassie, I had to use a different web browser than my usual one today. I went to Chrome. And posting an item worked, and no more screen jitters when I posted some replies. This makes me very happy. ...
  4. Pure gold - inset with topaz. A gorgeous duette, it looks brand new. You have some lovely jewels in your combined posts. I've never visited them, so had a really a good nosy around. Glad I did.
  5. Your turn eye4beauty.
  6. I was going to ask you if these were usable items. I thought about it - 'no, absolutely not' I said to myself, can't imagine the wrath from my mother as the jam pot slipped out of my hands landing on ...
  7. I do love brooches that are built up like this one, in tiers. You have exquisite taste. I notice not one piece in your Trifari collection displays missing pearls, rhinestones, none of your brooches ha...
  8. Not sure I could pour boiling water in this tea pot! I'd like to imagine he's asking for his ticket to the Mad Hatters Tea Party. He will have a special chair next to the March Hare.
  9. These are just amazing. Never more true - I learn something new every day. I've really enjoyed looking at the Tango Glass vases posted, but these tableware pieces are so very good. All of them here ma...
  10. Warning: This post is likely to induce a jewelry purchase of an Arthur Pepper brooch. (Blame it entirely on Ken) Looking through 3 or 4 pages of ART jewelery on a site I am particularly fond of,...
  11. Looks like the horse and the man are wearing suits of armour; or ripplimg muscles. Could signature be German. What's the horse pulling?
  12. I think they all sat on an iron (or other round metal piece) in a line, for a "shoot the bunny" game at a fair. Do I get the blue ribbon, or a stuffed giraffe? https://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-CAST...
  13. Bloody brilliant chair, absolutely brilliant. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/178529-rocking-chair-puzzle?in=loved-by-BOBR
  14. Is there a mark next to where it says Sterling? There also seems to be a mark on the inside of the smaller metal piece inside that opens. (Sorry, hopeless at explaining details.)
  15. Hi, Welcome to CW! Could you look everywhere for markings, and take as clear a pic as you can? Do you know if this is English silver - or do you know what country it was made in?
  16. http://chairblog.eu/2011/11/11/roorkhee-chair-by-max-lamb/ Closest I can find. Campaign chairs seen to be mostly canvas, with a lot of leather straps, chair arms are leather/canvas too. A simil...
  17. That's a one of a kind Lazy Susan - never seen one like that before. Super. Your pics are super too. Clear, in focus, presented very well indeed.
  18. OMG ! Dogs as well. We had a Yorkie when I was young. These things come heavy don't they?
  19. I can't keep up - they're all so beautiful Scott. Can you get a photo of all of them together? Maybe you don't have a place to show them all at once!
  20. 'Aint you handsome! Very neat photo from the 60's - thank you for posting. (I miss England)
  21. So lovely! Nice that you wear them too.
  22. What a beautiful thing to have.
  23. The ballroom was filled with fashion's throng, It shone with a thousand lights, And there was a woman who passed along, The fairest of all the sights, A girl to her lover the...
  24. That's okay Malkey - that was years, and years, and years ago. Thank you for the good wishes.
  25. I mean upside down watches.
  26. Nurses wore them on their aprons.
  27. Wow that's tiny! Had to look at my ruler to see how tiny. Very, very nice Scott.
  28. Me thinks it had a screw top. Not a crown cap. Perhaps salad dressing? I always hedge my bets.
  29. mmmmm....wonder if that's why I have problems with the "love" button, and also adding a comment or question. Sometimes I just lose the whole reply, or the whole thing goes to an error message page, an...
  30. Welcome to CW, and as Adele has said it's a gorgeous vase. We have a few Scandinavian glass collectors here, and I hope one or two pop by.
  31. Hi steam78, Some things just aren't as they seem.
  32. What a delightful pose they have. And because they're facing each other, it's even more so.
  33. I had the bug the first time I saw a cod stopper bottle. Oh, and my mother-in-law gave me a torpedo bottle she'd got from Barbados. I've sold most of my bottles now, except a handful that move with me...
  34. ;>/ Thanks MALKEY
  35. Malkey - All this time I thought you had dug up some of your bottles!!!!! I'll wipe the egg off my face later. Looking at all your posts together, I can see now I was soooooo wrong.
  36. Glad to know this wasn't found underground! Beautiful lamp.
  37. Taxidermy on top of a primitive looking set of shelves. Red suspenders, and a ceramic mug, or jug. How'd I do?
  38. It's a 'G' - I love baguettes too rose. Beautiful topaz stones as well. This is really lovely.
  39. I need more adjectives! I just glanced at the news on t.v., they were showing Megan Markle with QueenE (Will etc.) at a church service. Caught a glimpse of the Brooch the Queen was wearing - almost as...
  40. Another beauty-the work on the back of the ring is lovely too, and the metal is a little brighter.
  41. Beautiful ring !
  42. raven3766, thanks - I enjoyed the research.
  43. Have never seen a base like this - not even on the venerable Antiques Roadshow. It's absolutely, utterly even, gorgeous. A very well set up photo too! Do you collect Tiffany? I'm so happy you post...
  44. Manikin I see again that I've been tardy leaving my thanks for love 'taps' - I apologise, and thank you so much to all of you.
  45. Manikin&Elizabethan Thank you Manikin. It's so kind of you to drop by. I haven't looked at these for a long time. Elisabethan - I'm sorry not to have answered your questions. I don't know if the...
  46. That's quite the buckle you've got. Yes, please research the markings. You have a lot to work with. Where did you find it? I think it's called a 'Thunderbird' - it has very nice enameling, with bright...
  47. Thank you very much for the interesting link betweenthelens.
  48. An eBay listing for a Red Horse cup and saucer, from a 1980 exhibition at Liberty's of London. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Russian-Imperial-Lomonosov-Porcelain-Tea-cup-and-saucer-Red-Horse-Gold-Leaf...
  49. Couldn't find your particular Red Horse items. A lot of big and small teapots, and some cups and saucers. https://www.google.ca/search?client=ubuntu&hs=j5F&channel=fs&dcr=0&tbm=isch&q=Red+Horse+RUS...
  50. Does anyone else see that the material in the arms looks empty i.e. no limbs? I think(???) this could be a scarecrow, albeit a headless one. Very creepy - also I think I see legs and feet, but the top...
