  1. AnythingObscure, The first time I ever heard about absinthe was in the Lana Turner film “Madame X” I saw on TV. IT was a supposed to be a nasty addictive drink that was banned in some places. “M...
  2. Gillian, You reminded me of the first explorers who brought the "tomato" back to Europe. People like them at first and then they started getting sick. (This sort of pertains what I said to "keramik...
  3. Hi keramikos, Sorry for the long delay in responding. Been under the weather. I think just a cold. My sister heard from someone on fb that my neighbor downstairs & her son have COVID. I'll h...
  4. You know,...the "sifting" part of the bowl looks to be cut out by hand (if I had to guess). It doesn't look like it was "pressed in a mold". I watched a video from the Antique Cupboard (Phil Dries...
  5. vetraio50, At first I thot "sugar sifter" at first until I looked at other "sugar sifters". I think today they add extra dry chemicals to boxes of Powdered Sugar to prevent clumping. Back in the old...
  6. IVAN 49, I always think of a piece of serving ware when I think of a "compote" ( a dish). I believe I have some Ruby "Eye Winker" patterned glass (Vintage LG Wright Glass ones) with pieces called Ope...
  7. I would agree with "miKKoChristmas11" about the last picture. A. Stowell & Co. would be the jeweler, and "Whiting Manufacturing Co." I wish you showed a pix of the engraving of the Old Boston Ci...
  8. vetraio50, As you stated: “The pieces do not seem to be made by them. Yours is an example of a sterling spoon made in England and marketed at some stage by CURTIS & DUNNING with their impressed ma...
  9. vetraio50, That's funny because I bought a Columbus spoon (had to be the World's Fair 1892-93) from an eBay seller in Calif. His pix showed the back of the spoon and it was marked US Silver Co. I se...
  10. TruthOrDare, I found a Men's Gold ID bracelet one time. I thought I hit the jackpot because it was marked "18kt" and it had a fancy double safety clasp. The place for the ID had a fancy swirl patter...
  11. vetraio50, I looked at the thumbnail pictures on the Worthpoint site. They wouldn't let me "blow them up" (I guess you have to be a member ?). So I did screen captures and pasted them into an MS Wo...
  12. MysteryClock--under "Select up to 4 images (photo taking tips)", it says "chose images". I downloaded the pictures of the clock off of eBay into my Pictures file. When you click CHOSE IMAGES, it op...
  13. Thank you Mark for your input. I followed Katherine's suggestion to go to ACGA facebook page and found 2 cut glass people/experts thought that it was a piece of Blackmer cut glass. It seems like ever...
  14. Thanks for the info. I was hoping for a "real" one, but I still like the form. I would like to get a Vaseline Glass Opalescent one. It took the lady that sold it on eBay like 2 weeks to ship it. If...
  15. That's the Indiana Glass Co. "Tea Room" (Depression Glass) sugar or creamer. I haven't posted it yet That one had the caddy, but all 3 pieces were damaged. The caddy had the least damage. I was ab...
  16. Dear Robin, Isn't "pattern glass" for "pressed glass" ? This is a Libbey cut glass water pitcher. I had another cut glass dealer/expert on eBay tell me that it is called Pattern #83. I still say ...
  17. I am going to post more pictures of this "candy scoop" and I will post the Schrafft's dish.
  18. We had many glass companies, candy companies, the shoe industry, textiles, etc. in the Boston area. Now they are ALL gone. I also bought a little square pressed glass plate from this same fellow tha...
  19. We have glass windows up in the historical townhouses on Beacon Hill (think former Senator John Kerry-Heinz ;-D) that turned "purple". The local newspapers said it was a shipment of glass from France...
  20. Hi Spirit Bear, There seems to be a "seam" going vertically thru the middle of the handle. And there seems to be a "line" on the opposite side, but it's only in the "ribbed" pattern of the mug. Th...
  21. Dear Tall Cakes, Wow, that was fast. As we say here in Boston, "You're 'smaht' (smart)". Now, if I remember my Junior High School geometry--isn't a "decagon" a 10 sided object ? Or does it mean th...
  22. I went to wind the clock for the first time the other day. The woman that sold me the clock gave me TWO keys ??? I have a New England Clock Co. Steeple Clock that I bought new in 1971. The chime sp...
  23. Thanks "toolate2" for your comments. Walnut is such an expensive and rare wood that I am totally unfamiliar with it. I've seen some high end furniture with "walnut burl veneer", but "burl" has a uni...
  24. Thanks again Bruce for some explanations of finishes. I know I used shellac in the past and it left a yellow finish. My brother sanded & refinished his oak floors in his house. He didn't care for t...
  25. Bruce99, You're so "smaht" (smart). My Boston accent ;-D. Thank you so much ! I spent many hours looking on eBay & elsewhere looking for a similar clock. I found this site: http://www.antiquec...
