Nice! Silverplated, made by Atkin Brothers, Sheffield after 1853
Really hard to tell and anything is a guess but that type of fake antique finish was popular in the late '80s. That's my guess. Maybe made in the UK, take a look at Bevan-Funnell e.g. and similar comp...
Molds for chocolates and maple syrup sweets, etc. The round mold is for easter eggs I guess.
Should be spelled Eloi Bouscay Jr. There's a Bouscay Street in Norwalk, Ohio. Probably namned after him.
Nice! Patented by Eloi Bousgay, Norwalk, Ohio. http://www.google.al/patents/US176917
Nice! Not Dutch writing though. "Z. Zmynkay-" or similar. Looks more like a slavic language, Polish, Czech or similar. The date, 2 Luyi 1882, or something is definitely not Dutch, Dutch has basically ...
Look at the European countries' borders, Yugoslavia for instance, and compare with history. Changed a lot during the 20's, 30s and 40's.
Here's another pair, perhaps from the same manufacturer: https://www.terapeak.com/worth/vintage-ornate-brass-bird-claw-ice-tongs-made-in-montagnana-italy/381710809640/
Really cool find! Without any silver marks, I would guess silver plated brass.
Intriguing indeed! I have seen "Not yet but soon" as a greeting to couple expecting a child. But it could of course have some quirky second meaning. There was an election 1912, right? Maybe a slogan f...
...and another one. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/101361-eating-utinsels-with-casing
Meat cutlery, meat fork for the Sunday roast. Not necessarily that old...
It's truly stunning... Here's a similar: https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/more-furniture-collectibles/collectibles-curiosities/nautical-objects/17th-century-dutch-oak-sea-chest/id-f_5617303/
Beautiful! Looks real to me. Iacobus, i.e. Jacob. Oak wood. If you want to use it as a wine rack, can you keep it untouched and still insert a custom made wine rack whilst keeping the chest intact? Ma...
Found it: US Army 555th Airborne Field Artillery https://www.popularpatch.com/army/field-artillery-patches/555th-airborne-field-artillery-battalion-patch
Found the same on a cap, no explanation though. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/US-Military-Unit-Designation-Peace-Through-Victory-SnapBack-Ball-Cap-Hat-Red/132385178770?hash=item1ed2c58492:g:Qy0AAOSw~I5Zi6t0
Looks like a threading tool set
Tenure in Vietnam was measured in days and a soldier who was “short-timer”, had less than 99 days to go. Being “short-timer” was a measure of stature. The goal was off course boarding the “Freedo...
Looks like Valdemar du Lantz, Valdemar du Sants or something along that line.
Regardless of its content, I doubt the 23rd printing would make the book particularly rare. First editions usually would, in this case 1938.
It's the current Royal coat of Arms of UK. Since mid 1800's. Don't know if that particular design with the surrounding stars as opposed to the motto that's normally there signifies anything special or...
This post claims they were made by "Life at Home", later bought by Loblaws. I don't know. I haven't found any other support for this. Maybe far fetched? Something to consider at least... https:/...
Really cool collection!
Item 2 - Order of the Black Star (Benin) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Black_Star
Slicing the Sunday roast, I presume...
Nice! An outer flowerpot? That's what I would use it as, anyway.
Makes me think of the republican party, but I may be way off...
Really cool! I read about Company F and Racine 1881-1883. My only problem is that this art style is so typical Art Nouveau, I doubt it's designed in 1880's, rather 15-20 years later. Just a subjective...
i.e. there looks to be some text below "Rochdale Co."
Nice photo! Believe it says UNION HOTEL on the centre building and a last name --LUSING, Prop (as in propietor) on the Meat Market building. Agree the parasol says Dry Goods & Groceries and Rochdale...
This one's from 2001. https://www.squiggly.com/us/en/swatch-bijoux-prismatic-red-and-crystals-pendent-jpr0001.htm
This might be a clue. https://poshmark.com/listing/Swatch-jewelry-set-ring-and-necklace-59877f2a5a49d0d60208377b
Most likely model number.
The flaws in the casting of the tag (the spots and indents) make me a bit leery...
Thanks, always fun to solve a mystery! Here are R&B’s date marks: http://www.925-1000.com/RB_Date_Code.html
Nice! Real deal indeed... Made by Reed & Barton, Taunton Massachusetts. Date mark 1947.
Looks like 1989. At least Copyright. I found a bird on Ebay from 1962 by the same company.
Don't know, seems to be up to the post office itself to decide. "Pray for peace" was the most popular, started in 1954 and used throughout 60's and 70's. Here's some history on the slogans. http://fsu...
The stamp is "PRAY FOR PEACE"
That Dallmeyer lens is very rare, and looks to be in a really nice condition! I know there are adapters to fit these to Canon or Nikon. Worth quite a bit to enthusiasts. What does the serial number s...
Sounds like a bargin! Nice find!
I would guess 1920-30's for the bidet, and the stand a bit older. Not really the site for an appraisal but if you bought it at an auction, I guess that's roughly what it's worth! I haven't seen the ma...
But now I see the stand doesn't fit. I would guess the stand is older, that's why I got confused with the legs. The original bidet probably was made of porcelain. When that broke it was replaced by a ...
Not for washing babies, but for your private parts rather! It's a bidet :) Enameled washware came into production late 1800's. The legs feel a bit younger, post-victorian but not sure...
Could the number on the bottle indicate 1979? It's the new bottle post 1977 at least. It does seem to have been in rotation for quite some time. If 14 years for the bottle before last re-filling is a ...
Here's one from Czechoslovakia. But I agree, it's close to Germany :) https://img.tradera.net/images/405/255970405_053e9759-3594-4ef1-9960-392310d2d639.jpg
How did you search? I just typed: Mississauga "king products" This is the first google hit: http://www.companylisting.ca/King_Products_and_Solutions_Inc/default.aspx 'Original designers/manufact...
Just google the patent number. "us patent 241747" And Ye shall find! http://www.google.com.pg/patents/USD241747
