  1. Beautiful detail work - what are the dimensions? Any markings inside or underneath, or interior details for usage? Looks like a travel kit of some sort...
  2. let's try this again
  3. Did you ever find out more about this piece?
  4. My first thought was of a small indoor fountain we had in my house as a kid—with copper "petals" that poured into one another and then into a larger bowl. Possibly this was just a water feature?
  5. Thanks quantumphysica! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out...and the carpet is from CB2 - very affordable vintage inspired designs. :)
  6. Great thoughts @quantumphysica—I was looking for an acrylic or white table, but they all seemed cheap or damaged. Then I found this expandable Danish modern one on craigslist (refurbished by the selle...
  7. Guess you'll have to fill it with tootsie rolls or some other fun treat. ;) great find!
  8. Thanks Cindyjune :) I ended up scooping three more up on craigslist so I could repair the ones with torn cane seats, so I should take a new pic now that the group of 6 is setup in my new home...
  9. could be a Hunzinger—look beneath the seat and arms/sides for a manufacturer's label
  10. I hear ya! Lots of design changes coming to CW in the next few weeks to make the site more mobile-phone friendly...if there's any issues, features you'd like improved, etc. feel free to send a note t...
  11. Fun poster! Visual Arts is now Fine Arts. :)
  12. Vetraio's leatherworking suggestion is interesting too. I guess they could be a piece of jewelry, but they look too specialized to me not to have a particular use...
  13. Fascinating. I don't have much info, other than the fact that their elegantly shaped points don't resemble locksmith tools / picks. The edges seem ornately shaped to create a delicate edge, like on mo...
  14. A little more here on Seuss and Flit: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/when-the-wild-imagination-of-dr-seuss-fueled-big-oil/
  15. Also maybe the Ladies' Charitable Society? Louisville Charitable Society? lots of options. ;)
  16. Wonder if it was a Charitable Society (hence the helping hand image?) - like the Lincoln Charitable Society or something...just an idea!
  17. There's a little info on the Rootstein company in this CW article: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/what-mannequins-say-about-us/ YOu might try reaching out to ChadMichael Morrisette, whose c...
  18. Hi PP: Would you be interested in doing an interview on your collection for CollectorsWeekly? If so, shoot me an email at hunter@collectorsweekly.com. :)
  19. Sure thing - glad y'all enjoyed it. :) Hand-painted signs are the best; I'm glad they're making a comeback.
  20. Love this stuff! Have you read the CW article about sign painting? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/artisanal-advertising/
  21. Great chair groveland! With the patented duplex spring rocker, too. And thanks for reading. :)
  22. Mid century seems right to me. I believe the mark is for Reichenbach Porcelain, and here's a stock photo with the date marked as 1964: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-household-dishes-mocca-set-fatim...
  23. I've used a kintsugi kit on broken mugs and plates before, but I'm not sure I would use it on something so old (I'd be worried it would damage the clay and destroy its integrity/value). But for future...
  24. it looks like a shaving brush to me - is the "hair" part soft bristles or solid? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/accessories/shaving-mugs-and-brushes
  25. I think this might be a Hunzinger chair - see more here: http://hunzinger.blogspot.com/ You'll have to upload some clearer photos from all sides and underneath for us to get a good look at it.
  26. appears to be an easel.
  27. Thanks for the comment Thomas—I think some of my family also had them in the 1980s. Trying to figure out the best matching table that won't look too dated...
  28. thanks sean :)
  29. hahaha, that's great antiquerose! Do you remember this flower art circa 1995? -----<----@
  30. Thanks Sean! Happy V-Day everyone. <3
  31. thanks alwayssearching! :)
  32. That makes sense. :)
  33. Hi nvineyar, if you are using images from your phone sometimes they will need to be re-oriented on a desktop computer and saved before uploading...I've fixed it for you this time. :)
  34. Definitely appears to be of the pomander variety (for holding scents). Any idea what era this is from?
  35. cooking / serving? great piece!
  36. Thanks Vetraio! Same to you down under. :)
  37. haha sorry Rob - I'm on vacation time already. ;) happy holidays! And thanks for checking out the item.
  38. Aha, well glad you figured it out. :)
  39. ralph niederman is the resident camera expert - hopefully he will see this and have some idea...
  40. Reminds me of the ornate cigarette cases popular around the turn of the century. here's one I picked up: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/47089-silver-cigarette-case
  41. Lovely lamp Cindy! To fix sideways images (which are usually a result of using a phone), you can open them on a desktop computer, rotate the correct direction, and save / upload them anew. Let me kno...
  42. What are its dimensions? recently saw some very similar pieces from the 1910s-1930s that were built for cruise ship cabins / college dormitories. There are a few photos in the slideshow here (pics 12...
  43. Also, I just looked closely, and all the items on that oldest page were posted by employees at the time. ;-)
  44. Interesting question antiquerose: Manikin is correct that some of the earliest posts have been deleted, but since each unique S&T is assigned a number, you can scroll through the earliest items that a...
  45. I'm curious why you didn't want him to get a ticket (regardless of whether he seemed to be a "nice guy") ? I ride a bike to commute in California, and the cops here have to be pushed to actually cite...
  46. so coo! No writing or labeling anywhere?
  47. This article will likely provide some answers: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/gloriously-grotesque-19th-century-pipes/
  48. or toast?! very cool. :)
  49. haha thanks Mani! :)
  50. My first thought was a font for Holy water, perhaps from a Catholic church or facility—though in that case, it would be surprising there are no religious symbols on it.
