  1. Darn autocorrect! One LONG edge.
  2. No, I don't have it anymore. Sold it to a collector about 2 years ago. I know it's found a good home.
  3. She did, indeed! And the second one is the title she mentioned. Thanks so much for the help.
  4. Yes, Hester. The "a" was a typo. The two are different. This one has 12 riders over a jump and the other has 16 riders walking their mounts to the starting line. The jockeys signatures are differ...
  5. It says: Our Gentlemen Steeplechase Riders. It's a lithograph published December 1, 1885 by F. G. McQueen and it's engraved by E. G. Heater.
  6. Thanks... I thought so too.
  7. Sarahoff, on your pottery marked "Belgium" is it clearly stamped or painted on? Any way you could post a photo of that mark?
  8. I think you hit the nail on the head! I'm going to investigate. Thanks so much.
  9. Thanks for that interesting comment. I did some exploring about this, and think you are right. I don't believe this is European, or even that old, but the lines do follow some of the art pottery pie...
  10. Well, I can answer my own question now. It was made by the Frank Whiting silver company and #5005 is the pattern number. There are 2 on ebay right now, but I actually found it by Googling "sterling ...
  11. I have an old silver trimmed blunderbuss that I might post also. I've understood it was possibly a Persian piece, and not very valuable, but it's still beautiful and unusual.
  12. Looks nothing like a citrus reamer if you could see the whole item. I'll post a complete picture soon. It looks like a melon-shaped basket and the owner thinks each section may have been individuall...
  13. How's the water buffalo?
  14. Eeeek! A whole ranch! That means work. I'll stick with collecting and displaying unusual things, I guess.
  15. Gosh, y'all are getting close to the barter price. When you start adding in goats and a dowry, I might have to start seriously considering it!
  16. THANK you! <grin>
  17. Thanks for the feedback. It is a great helmet.
  18. It's hollow all the way down to the tip of the tail. The glassblower who crafted this was/is truly amazing.
  19. The really interesting thing is that Buffalo Bill took his review to England for the jubilee year of Queen Victoria in 1887. So, I guess he brought some of the Western culture to Europe back then.
  20. Thank you so much for all your help. I thought it was a Wilhelm Schiller & Son (Sohn) piece but simply couldn't document anything about it. It's a beauty. Could never find a connection between "Aus...
