  1. Prehistoric symbol merely adopted by the nazis. Your's probably unrelated to wartime. Would be good with sharper photographs so the hallmarks are visible. Then you can find out the date and manufactur...
  2. Yes that's right. a knife rest. Especially for your own private butter knife.
  3. How fun, great to hear! Glad to be of help. /Olof
  4. Bergslagen is famous for its mines, Iron and Copper. Hence the symbols.
  5. here you go: The emblem of the "Bergslagernas Railroad Company". Bergslagen is a district in mid-west Sweden. https://digitaltmuseum.se/021027848988/knapp
  6. I think it's rather ment to be the signs for iron and copper, commonly mined in Sweden. Could be the crest of a Swedish town.
  7. Not this one? https://vintagefishingtackle.co.uk/product/boxed-abu-ambassadeur-6000-multiplying-reel/
  8. I concur, oak. Perhaps a bit too ornamented for Mission Style and not particular old is my guess.
  9. Welcome to CW! Nice bottle. It seems you've gotten some advice at least? https://www.drinksplanet.com/rare-cuban-rum-i-cant-find-any-info-on.-138828.html
  10. Nice! Looks like pewter coated brass. Agree, could be Middle eastern.
  11. On your picture: https://www.replacements.com/p/watson-putnam-sterling-1920-small-solid-cold-meat-serving-fork/wtsput/7765601
  12. Here, I pipped you to the post :) The pattern is Putnam by Watson (1920). You can order through Replacements: https://www.replacements.com/webquote/wtsput.htm
  13. This Hallmark is not Wallace, search for Watson patterns instead. WATSON COMPANY - Attleboro, MA. Watson was however sold to R.Wallace & Sons in 1955. So in a sense it's Wallace, hence the confusion.
  14. It does match with the sanitary corps, which inspected hospitals. The abbreviation on the lid is probably Master Hospital Inspector. Also, I think it says "med" below in writing on the front.
  15. Did some googling... Could have belonged to a Major "Kenneth George Kincaid" Hospital Inspector of the US Army Sanitary Corps. Enlisted 1898, deceased 1956, San Francisco.
  16. S. den Ouden?
  17. You've seen this I guess? https://www.marktplaats.nl/a/antiek-en-kunst/kunst-schilderijen-klassiek/m1436493200-havengezicht-in-aquarel-alluminium-kl-lijst-sign-den-ouden.html
  18. ...a snuff box, most likely.
  19. Nice! That "84" is a Russian standard =.875 So Russia 1839 is my guess, with the maker's mark in italic stamp and the city mark to the right. Maybe made to celebrate 1840, which would be that king's ...
  20. Cool! BTW, the scabbard is not original, it's a sheath for a Leatherman multi-tool.
  21. https://www.justanswer.com/antiques/8vuqf-simple-northwestern-master-craft-desk.html
  22. Maybe something similar to the Japanese 'Inro' ? But from another asian culture ? Looks sort of like one anyway... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inr%C5%8D
  23. What does it look like on the inside? Any labels?
  24. I think it's a USMC "Sweetheart" pin. Sent home to be worn by wife or mothers.
  25. https://picclick.com/Vintage-Masonic-Knights-Templar-Maltese-Cross-Enamel-Pluribus-283365230616.html
  26. Masonic knights templar medal. Clinton is listed here at #66, out of Clinton, Ill. https://kt-il.org/constituent-commanderies/
  27. Could be made by Kraeuter, Newark, NJ. Similar mark.
  28. Birmingham, England, 1894. Hard to see the maker though.
  29. Yes, Renoir but not "the" Renoir. Here's another of the same artist: https://france-estimations.fr/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/DSC03322-750x380.jpg
  30. Sheet metal bending pliers is my guess.
  31. //since you visit me - //
  32. Love old letters! This is what I can read, maybe someone can fill in the blanks: ----- Dear Ada, (May 4/95) You ? ? I am intrigued that you did not get my letter I have written you. A long 6 page...
  33. I'm thinking more like cute signs for Mens / Ladies. At least the boy peeing I've seen on bathroom doors in the sixties/seventees
  34. Yes, probably a bear. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/CARVED-WOOD-MUSICAL-CIGARETTE-BOX-ASHTRAY-MATCH-STAND-BEAR-MOULIN-ROUGE-SONG-/172427644847
  35. Fantastic, just realized I had one of these in the 70's. Nostalgia! Monza is the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit in Italy. The car's classification and specs must adhere to rules called Formula 1. http...
  36. There are a few hits on google, have you seen this one? So, the company was established 1870 and merged with another one 1930, so that narrows it a bit. http://commercialoverprints.com/henry-barker-sm...
  37. Beautiful! So well carved. One mistake and it would be ruined. I read the inscription "With a cheerful mind, take a pinch" (of snuff )
  38. It probably should read "Sic Currite ut Comprehendatis", a Latin motto. Roughly "Run to win" or rather "So run, that ye may obtain". Don't know if that helps you a lot though, but now you know! :)
  39. Divorced in the 70's Nobody wanted the cake! :) Amazing what you can find on the internet: David H Rhinelander, born Jun 1935 Massachusetts, Divorced 20 Jan 1976 in Connecticut Education Level: 4 ...
  40. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Beethoven-Hadyn-Wall-Plaque-Bas-Relief-Sculptures-Set-1487-/302754693472?hash=item467d960160
  41. Dear old Ludvig van Beethoven. 100%. Grumpy stern face, collar straight up and that thick hair.
  42. Part of a wash-stand: https://www.diggerandmojo.com/en-GB/sold-recently/-antique-victorian-washstand/prod_10146#.W4kAdl62Gbg
  43. Could be earlier 1880's, look at this site under Brown Westhead Moore Hereford: https://www.blueandwhite.com/museum.asp?m=Brown
  44. Here's a better resolution of the logo: https://images.auctionet.com/uploads/item_565674_21c4e56533.JPG
  45. The maker is JC Brown Westhead Moore & Co, "BWM Co". The series is Hereford. C:a 1900-1950
  46. Another Collector here has one! https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/160769-inherited-pipe
  47. Cool! For holding an oil lamp. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/rare-patented-adjustable-oil-lamp-wall-bracket
  48. Many attempts out there... https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/222077-sea-captains
  49. Yes, indeed looks like KKK but KKK's pointed hat was inspired by the capirote, worn by religious brotherhoods in Spain during the Holy Week, so the writing on the box may be true. The KKK most likely ...
  50. Interesting! What does it say on the shiny tube on the side? Seems to be some text there...
