  1. If it's truly identical to the Merry Widows tins, then it was likely used for condoms: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/getting-it-on-the-covert-history-of-the-american-condom/
  2. This site might be a better resource if you are looking to date labels, however, most of their catalog is aimed at designers/popular brands rather than generic t-shirt makers. https://vintagefashiongu...
  3. Hi Sandra, Thanks for getting in touch - amazing to hear from you! I'll send you a note. ;)
  4. Perhaps a child's play set?
  5. Glad you noticed TallCakes and sorry it took so long!
  6. Could be for a candle? The arm is not hollow I assume?
  7. the middle part appears to say HAND CARVED
  8. Thanks Newfld! :)
  9. And here's another! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Frank-Carmelitano-Painting-ORIGINAL-CANVAS-20x20-/282555361688
  10. Ding Ding Ding I think kwqd is right! Check out the signature of Frank's here: https://image.invaluable.com/housePhotos/auctionsbtb/43/278643/H1050-L13930935.jpg
  11. Par---litano?
  12. they look mid century to me - late 1960s - 70s.
  13. yay great! :)
  14. Ah I see—I have a similar one but the date is on the base and has a large screw to open it with. The photo side of the brass frame doesn't pop out from the rest does it? Seems like that would be the o...
  15. How exactly are they upside down? The calendar frame part should fit on the rack between the two pens, and you rotate it to see the photo.
  16. Wow, quite the find! Looks like these beauties go for quite a pretty penny, depending on age: https://www.1stdibs.com/jewelry/necklaces/more-necklaces/antique-victorian-cats-eye-operculum-riviere-neck...
  17. Very cool, great cover too!
  18. Super cool - definitely thought it was Mexican / Aztec upon first glance.
  19. Thanks Mani! It was a good adventure...hope you're having a nice April. :)
  20. I believe "Réservé" means "reserved" in French. So this is likely a Coke-branded table-reservation card. My guess is napkins and straws fit into the bottom portion... :)
  21. Aha! Thanks for the update—still beautiful. :) If you're looking for a valuation or insurance appraisal, you can try Value My Stuff: https://www.valuemystuff.com/us/home
  22. Gorgeous - Mexican cactuses? can't quite make out the pattern. Can you post a larger image of the front of the pieces?
  23. good luck! It's a lovely painting. :)
  24. Found him ;) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ken-Paris-Pretty-Fashions-6558-New-in-Package-1989-Mattel-Inc-3/283385847924 Sorry couldn't resist the joke! Kén (with an accent) seems a pretty uncommon way...
  25. Just fixed 'em for ya this time.
  26. Tyler, S&T doesn't recognize the automatic phone rotation. Unfortunately you have to open them on your desktop, save in the correct orientation, and then upload if you want them right way up. :/
  27. yeah the bottom makes it appear to be a repro to me too.
  28. Love it :) how do you melt wax off pottery?
  29. thanks Sean :) hope you're doing well!
  30. hey BB, thanks for the love ;) HI Jacky!
  31. You too, Sean!
  32. thanks autumn :)
  33. ;) Glad you identified it - very cool chair!
  34. Thanks Vetraio! Happy New Year to you, too! Hope you're having a nice summer down under. ;)
  35. Haha yes, Elizabethan, I love it Swedish. :)
  36. Oops, and somehow got out of order - thanks fortapache and happy holidays to you, too, Officialfuel!
  37. Thanks IronLace, Broochman & Mani for the kind words! Have a very Merry Chrismas all. :)
  38. Thanks Gillian - same to you! :)
  39. Hahaha thanks BB2. And you too, Newfld! :)
  40. love that wrapping paper! and the vegetable ornaments! =^) Happy Holidaze...
  41. My guess is this was part of a set depicting different eras in tennis or other sports. Agree with Scott that it's probably latter half of 20th C. :)
  42. Thanks Sean!
  43. I assume this is the swedish listing you're referencing? http://www.borgdesign.se/Pages%20Art%20Deco/a3.html Definitely has a deco 1920s-30s vibe!
  44. Do you think it's supposed to resemble a pastry crust? remarkable dish. :)
  45. Om my gosh that TINY MUMMY! Amazing find; can't believe it's still intact.
  46. Great finds! CW did an article awhile back on feature matches (with the ads printed onto the matches themselves): https://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/playing-with-matches/
  47. Looks like *ceramic* glazing meant to imitate graniteware (which is enameled metal).
  48. Probably something like hte middle one of these three—seen lots of bullet planters with the tripod style stand. Great find! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Metal-Bullet-Planter-Plant-Stand-Lot-Mid-Ce...
  49. Wow, I would have that appraised to verify if it's an authentic original rather than a reprinted poster. Very cool!
  50. Actually, Marüshka was an American company! Based in Michigan. :) https://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/vintage-waiting-room-art/
