I love old, unique stuff! (Read more)


  1. I had tried that! But was not finding anyplace that had where the signatures were noted. I was really just curious. I got it because I love it. It's in my collection of great glass now.
  2. Thanks! Maybe its just the old look of the stones. But I think this is the oldest ring ive ever saw.
  3. Thank you both for your comments! Very helpful.
  4. I also agree with Phil that is probably a date.
  5. I have similar salt and pepper shakers. I was so sad something fell out of a cupboard and landed on Santa! I have since glued him back together. But oh the humanity!!
  6. I found a bunch of these last year in an attic of a house I bought. I also found a tinsel tree. So I saved them for only that tree. They are just wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
  7. LOL, that would be funny! I actually listed these on Facebook marketplace yesterday. They go against the rules. Of too much sexuality lol.. I had to put stickers on it to post.. I've gotten 700 view...

  13. Thank you for your comment! I waited to decide on buying it on the last day of the sale. So 50% off. I couldn't pass it up at $35. It was very well taken care of. It was a little old lady's house. Sh...
  14. Thanks for the great comments! I should post that table too lol...
  15. I guess when we get things we hope so much that they are authentic! But I still think this is a wonderful item.
  16. I just took some new pictures. Indeed it says inspired by, also 1991. So guessing it was made in 1991! Definitely not an antique. Thanks for your help! I will change my title.
  17. Thank you very much for your comment watchsearcher! Not offensive at all, in fact it makes much sense. I will take new better pictures since I am home now. I definitely couldn't imagine a real baby...

  24. Ok added two different pictures. I'm not at home right now to take better ones. But would love to know opinions. Thanks!
  25. This one is so old and delicate I truly believe it's an original. I'll repost some different pictures. I live in New York. Where everything is old!!
  26. Thanks so much! I will look into that. I'll repost once I get it figured out.
  27. Thanks for your comment Alfred, please keep smiling!
  28. I work at an antique store, so the clock guy gets so much work from us we get special pricing. He usually only charges $25 to $40 plus if there was any cost of ordering missing parts. I try to tip h...
  29. Yes!! The whole store jumped two feet, at the sound of the alarm! Including myself ha. But antique stores are usually full of old people. So lucky they only jumped and didn't fall down. Thanks for yo...
  30. Thank you Bruce, my clock guy usually sets it so it's running at the correct time. Or at least very close to it. I see this one has an alarm as well. I do not have much experience with those. Other ...
  31. Thank you Dav2no1, I have been watching the gold ones on Ebay. But your right just not the same. I need its mate in black!

  38. Thanks for your response. I really have always wanted one. But not if I can't get it working. Plus he's wanting way too much for it in not working order. It doesn't seem over wound. Because it stil...
