Mataman..I did not yet find any more information. Anything that you have would be more than we have found so far, I appreciate it..
That's pretty cool. I think that you are on to some old relics and I sure with that I could hunt a spot like that one. I would like to swing my metal detector around there to see if there is some type...
Those are pretty interesting. The last one looks like some type of man made primitive brick or something.
We live in the big city of Houston and look forward to going on road trips just to see stuff like this sitting out on a lot in a small town. It has great value to us who pass by your property and drea...
You know, this is just a price estimate and it could fetch thousands more at auction it's the only one of it's color or better condition than other examples. I really liked the results of my American ...
Here you go....I found this good info for you and your BEER bottle. Age Circa 1849 Base IP Rarity 1 Dollar Value 2000 Comments THIS BOTTLE LIKELY A PRODUCT OF THE BALTIMORE WORKS. OF THE FEW KNO...
Wow...I really should proof read my comments before submitting them. It's also important that you do not pop any bubbles in antique glass as tempting as it might be to some. Those bubbles can be of v...
DON'T NOT TRY CLEANING IT. That could be a valuable bottle and you should contact someone like Hecklers auctions or Ferdinand at Peachridge Glass or John Pastor with American Glass Gallery and inquire...
Thanks to all of you! You're making me want to buy another one while they are still so inexpensive.
Thanks Stuff..I remember as a kid not getting to touch one that my family had and they wouldn't even play it for me. Now that I have one, my kids get to touch it and listen to it. I just ask that they...
kwqd...I was just able to play one of the supplied records, "BALLAD OF DAVY CROCKETT" by "Tennessee" Ernie Ford, for my two boys aged 2 & 5. I just wish that you could see them dancing end enjoying th...
I just wonder how many of us are related to those people. It used to be a small world. Great photos and thanks for sharing them with us.
Now that's very pretty. Looks like candy
The upholstery is especially beautiful, very nice chair.
You are correct, I collect oil lamps and try to restore them to their original condition and photos help so much. Thanks.
I just love vase and the education. You always write so well. Thanks
That's a fantastic story and she knew it was going to be a mess even back then. I just wonder if it's her because this photo shows actual ear lobes on the lady on the left but the photos of Ann Maris...
I have a beautiful cranberry flashed oil lamp and matching chimney from about the mid 19th century that have this same floral pattern cut in the glass. I don't know how long they continued to use this...
I once cut down a Palm tree with young squirrels nesting in it. One of them was hurt & not able to run away. It's sibling came back down a tree and laid on top of it while we were trying move it with ...
You are right, the hair in all of her photos never was like the hair in this photo. The chin is different as well, good observation. My sister always beat me at that Old Maid game that we played as k...
My wife is from Lima Peru and she said that she saw the Nazca Lines but she did not think that this one looks familiar. I am American and thought at first that it looked like it was Peruvian but I cer...
How about Susan B Anthony, an icon of the women's suffrage movement? The lady on the far left looks similar to her but I am not good at matching people.
My wife is Peruvian and she said it's difficult to tell based on the hat and animal but she said it looked Peruvian or some South American Country.
Fantastic machinist and what a beautiful project car.
Wouldn't it be Peruvian, the Nazca Lines of Peru? Looks like the monkey or something but it's hard to see.
I guess it would make a difference if the teacher was a male or female. That's so interesting as our behavior and terminology has changed quite a bit in the past 100 years, I.... guess?
Wow.....I need to find one of these, I am an Arborist and my last name is Penney. Thanks for sharing!
Could it be a movie prop. or a training weapon? I don't know but I am curious. Thanks for sharing, it's a cool find.
I looks to me like someone was experimenting with an acidic substance.
Bruce I simply did a Google search for U.S. Patent January 2 1912 and it came up with a sketch and all of the patent information. If you search it, also use the Cream Dipper with the date. Best wi...
Cream Dipper Milk at the present time is usually sold in bottles and my invention relates to a dipper adapted to skim the cream from the surface of the milk before the milk has been decanted. For thi...
I sure thank y'all for the "love". As a child, I overheard my grandfather discussing the conversion of oil lamps to electricity with his neighbor. The men were talking about how so many beautiful la...
Sorry, I just noticed the groove on top and I think that you were right in being a mirror bracket for a vanity or something.
They look like bookends to me that were mounted on wood and facing the wrong direction.
I would think that it looks like a portion of a wild boar jaw bone.
New clear photos added.
Y'all are great and so are your comments. I must say, I love it! I love it all. Mr. Thomas, thanks again.
I would say that this was originally a Sears Composite Oil Lamp font that was converted with an electric conversion. The conversion was made to screw into the top of the font and allowed the electrici...
Hey Jude, don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better Hey Jude, don't be afraid You were made to go out and get h...

Thank y'all for the love clicks.
Thank you so much for the heads up. I purchased a big box of these records for less than $20. and found so many good records but I don't even know what to look for and that is why I posted some of the...
Looks like a curved shadow, could it be that the Earth is round? Beautiful shot and thank you so much for posting it.
I thought it was a carnival glass pedestal compote. I'm sure not a seasoned composter guy or anything though.
Now that is a fine fine piece of history. I LOVE IT!
That's funny.....you used my word...COOL. I love em.
One of my favorite songs is by Neil Young, "Old Man" and just recently we were celebrating my old hippy step father's birthday at a restaurant and that song came on the playlist. Really cool pants! O...
That is so historic and so cool. I love it!
That's my kind of treasure! I love it.
