  3. Thank you both very much. Well, the table was made this way and not rebuilt. It does have that look like it was assembled using multiple styles or something. That is why I posted it because it was con...
  4. I looks like it was attached to cloth as I see what looks like fibers around the outer edge on the back side. It's a pretty old looking piece, to me.
  5. I have one like it but it's not a nice as yours. I thought that it was as follows, "WWI original US Navy sailor's duffel bag bronze lock handle. These locks were used on the large canvas duffel bags t...
  6. Interesting thought, thank you so much, fhrjr2.
  7. What a great deal! That's a nice lamp and thank you for sharing it.
  8. That is perfection.
  9. You may not be an expert but you sure reminded me that I didn't pay attention in school. You are a very smart person "truthordare" and I really appreciate your sharing what you do know as it does help.
  10. Thank you all for the input! That just adds to the mystery. I was afraid that someone might question the numbers on back that I was assuming were a date. I just added a picture that includes little p...
  11. I posted a similar picture almost a year ago and this is what Scottvez said about it. "It is a photograph. These are called charcoals by many collectors." What do you think?
  12. I would think that this collection should increase in value with each statue that is removed. What a shame to see the loss of so much history whether one likes it or not, it's history. As I look into ...
  13. The colors are amazing and blend so well with nature. Thank you for sharing another beautiful piece of uncommon art glass.
  14. Looks like it's from 1852-1870's while they were partner's in business. They made paint products and I would guess that it contained a pastel paint or coloring. Artists have mentioned finding antique ...
  15. Wow! That's really nice.
  16. Oh, I see. That's a good lesson for me and I see what you are saying about the solder. Like you said, it's still a good price for a beautiful lamp. Strange, I was just thinking about how naive I am be...
  17. No way, Tiffany!
  18. Here is the information that I found based on past research....... The Stiffel Lamp Company was founded in 1932, in Chicago, Illinois by Ted Stiffel. Stiffel lamps are know to be some of the finest...
  19. I had one just like it and I sold it. I pretty sure it's Italian and you sure don't want to break that white frosted glass because it's expensive to replace. A man drove from a couple of hundred miles...
  20. Beauty scale- 100% This is a fine looking antique lamp and I love it. How did it survive all of these years as a complete lamp? Thank you for sharing this one.
  21. That's what I'm talking about, very nice oil lamp collection. I would like to see the lamp in the center back of the second photo. It have a white font and red base. The green Princess Feather lamp i...

  26. What a fun collection, thanks for sharing it.
  27. Wow, wow, wow....very nice piece.
  28. That's a very nice blue glass torpedo soda water bottle. It looks like it was a dug bottle and could use a light tumbling. I wonder if it's an English or American bottle but it sure does look like 187...
  29. Thank you all for the love clicks. I understand that these pieces were difficult to produce as the colored canes or rods are each applied to the outside of each piece and then heated and formed to th...
  30. Oh what I could do with the TRUTH. Thank you for the nice posting.
  31. 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..
  32. 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...
  33. Those are pretty interesting. The last one looks like some type of man made primitive brick or something.
  34. 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...
  35. Goodness......
  36. 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 ...
  37. 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...
  38. 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...
  39. 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...
  40. Thanks to all of you! You're making me want to buy another one while they are still so inexpensive.
  41. 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...
  42. 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...

  47. I just love vase and the education. You always write so well. Thanks
  48. 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...
  49. 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...
  50. 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 ...
