I don't know why he doesn't sell online. He used to sell at art shows in Hawaii but I don't live there any more to know if he still does that. On a trip there a few years ago, I met him at Louis Poh...
I keep looking at this wonderful picture and thinking that she has features of an American Indian. Do you think that's possible rather than African American?
Such a fun design! I can imagine them reupholstered in some bold, eye-catching fabrics. For some great ideas, look on Pinterest. Lucky you for owning them!
I totally agree with previous answer. You can get loads of info on line regarding Apis bull.
This is lovely! Do you know what the 2 little round things are? Maybe old buttons, pins or earrings? You would have to disassemble the whole thing to find out, but that would allow you to look at ...
It's a beautiful brooch! I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but the pin on the back looks like it was made to accommodate a very thick fabric or layers of fabric. Perhaps it was for h...
I keep going back to look at these 2 lovely little pots. So beautifully proportioned and thin-walled with simple glazes....and that hard to read maker's signature....something rings a bell here. I t...
You may have a "tack pusher" used in upholstery. Check to see if the little circular part on the bottom on the "stem" is magnetic.
Is the bottom of the "stem" flat or concave? Any signs of wear on the bottom of the stem? Could you post pictures of the bottom? Thanks!
I love photo #4 with it's dark background, "rising sun" reflecting off the buildings and the rooster crowing, farmers up-and-at'um just like in real life. The detail is remarkable! Even barbs on the...
I had NO idea such a hobby existed! You prompted me to read about Parker pens and to appreciate an item that has been taken for granted. You have an impressive display!
The local Singer store in my hometown offered group sewing lessons. Participants paid a fee to be taught everything from how to select patterns and appropriate weight fabric, notions, how to lay out ...
The Sheaffer's ink cartridge box in the background is something I recently wondered about. ....do they still make them? The pens and their ink, contained in a plastic cartridge, eliminated the someti...
I also was a 1969 high school graduate and remember the Sears catalogue and stores well. The store in our town had a candy counter which sold warm cashew nuts, SO delicious! And the best chocolate c...
I can only imagine the arm fatigue that would result from "wisking" dough!
Thanks! I understand why it could be mistaken for a compact. I wonder if a silver dollar would fit in the round metal part?
The wood used inside drawers is usually a secondary wood. It doesn't show so they use less expensive wood there.
I believe this is Federal Style. The drawer pulls are characteristic as well as the curved front. I hope that helps you. It's beautiful no matter how you use it!
No. Forget all that. It's a Danish Dough Wisk used in bread making. Lots for sale on Amazon.
Also. Possibly something used in clay sculpting?
It surely had a practical use. Maybe you could secure a cleaning cloth by winding it thru the wire loops then scrubbing out some big cooking pot or some other vessel so deep that the long handle woul...
Beautiful! Am I seeing a wire on the outside of the rectangular pieces or am I seeing the wire as it tunnels thru the inside of the pieces? Either way, I love it! Just trying to figure out how it's...
No idea about the maker but the little bonnet and the square-toed shoe makes me think it depicts a Pilgrim lady. It's really quite lovely!
That's fantastic! I wish you would post a follow-up with pictures of the inside and the back, the hinges and closure mechanism. Most women didn't carry a pistol in such a conspicuous manner or wear ...
With the raised edge across the back, I wonder if this originally had a mirror attached. If so, it may have been a "dressing table". Check the back for signs of mirror attachment.
Just an observation about the tall amber piece: with the very small opening in the top, it may have been made specifically as a lamp rather than someone turning it into a lamp. Possibly someone disa...
It's beautiful displayed with the persimmons!
The design: young lady in wide-brimmed hat, pistol, long skirt with fancy trim, horse, etc, make me think of Annie Oakley, the famous sharp shooter who was a sensation around the 1880s into early 1900...
I came across 2 small side tables on eBay that were made 1 year before yours in 1958. They are listed as "Rare Vintage Lane tables with patriotic themed Catalina ceramic tiles". The tiles have some ...
You can find the exact date of manufacture by reading Lane's serial number backwards. So your table was made 02-28-59 February 28, 1959.
It's beautiful! It was probably treasured by the family. I have seen some identical or near identical on Etsy by entering "1860 mourning brooches".
I missed your post when you first presented it. I hope your wife loved the dollhouse! It's an obsession once you start furnishing and decorating! I have 3 that I have worked on (sporadically) for 2...
The Bekins tag just shows that it was transported by the Bekins moving company at some point, maybe when the family moved.
You are so right about the pm photograph being the only one that a family might have. Such was the case with my grandmother's family: in the 1930s, when her little 3 year old died, a pm photo was ta...
Is there an initial at the center front of his cap? (Side view looks like it) Just judging by the huge nose, out of proportion with the rest of him, I'm guessing it's a home-made Pinocchio doll.
Is that a small protrusion on the tip? If so, that my wind something. My first thought was that I could be a key for turning on a gas fireplace.
If you put water in the depression with the egg-shaped stones, it could be a little "watering hole" for birds and butterflies.....acute little garden feature near some flowers.
Does the white part lift off? Is it hollow? Glazed inside? Is there any tiny opening under the "egg"- shaped stones where a thin wick could be placed? I as those questions because I've seen oil la...
Fantastic find and looks to be in great shape! There are museums in Honolulu which might love to display it. Iolani Palace, residence of last Hawaiian queen, Liliuokalani, might be able to help you ...
Yours looks much older than mine. This one would have been in use by my grandmother in the 1950s-1960s.
I found mine--it has been passed from my Granny to my mother to me. You have a Tatting Shuttle. Tatting is a technique of making lace by hand. I remember Granny talking about tatting and I have old...
I've seen something similar but not as lovely as yours. I'll check my Singer treadle machine tool box and let you know.
Take a look at "anchor cameo pendants" on EBay and Etsy. That may help.
I think the backwards N may have been an innocent mistake by the person who put the name there. Please do post more info if you find out more.
I have one also. I treasure it! They were used for hewing logs. You will find many on eBay. You could use Ancestry.com to research census records, deaths, marriages, deeds, etc, for the area in ...
You have probably already thought of this but I suggest checking eBay for vintage curtains and bed spreads which may have been made from this fabric. There are also sites which sell new old-stock fab...
It says Meyda Tiffany. The designs were "inspired by Tiffany designs"--not the same as Tiffany. Just Google the name and you will see many designs with prices.
I thought it is a transistor radio also. A picture showing the 2 dials would define it. I still have a transistor radio from 1960s. My elderly aunt had a "hearing aid" device to magnify sound but I...
On the back, I believe that is not a misprint. It looks more like the stamp glue picked up the ink/design/wording of some other object upon which it was lying.
Tole painting classes were very popular in 1970s. Possibly, someone had already painted everything possible to paint and finally resorted to decorating the lunch bags. They are very pretty. You cou...
See all 1994
