I'm an older sort of poot that has been dealing in antiques and collectibles on some level for most of my life. For 18 years I had a storefront location, for twenty years before that I was regular swap meet seller. The shop closed in 2006 and I've been getting rid of the remainders ever since. Less a collector than an accumulator, I am not an expert on anything but I've seen a lot of stuff. This site has been helpful to me and hopefully I can occasionally return the favor. I appreciate your comments and "loves" for my posts here. Any further discussion - I can be reached at frabbersnazz@gmail.com (Read more)

  1. All naval ships have bells. The larger bells usually have the ship's name; smaller bells (like yours) sometimes have the year the ship was commissioned as identification. A ship of that age could eas...
  2. "Time is a vapor" - I may have to use that line somewhere.
  3. Also in the synopsis, Steinwald and Mayer are cited as manufacturers, Rasch is cited as a refiner. All three companies apparently had experience exporting to the US.
  4. Not to pick nit here but ... In the tax reappraisal, in the case that mentions Ernst Steinwald and Co., it is the Customs Dept. that is being sued. Steinwald is only mentioned as providing an affidavi...
  5. Both Napco and Lefton were importers. These figures are a Made in Japan knock-off of a Hedi Schoop design.
  6. There is no doubt that, judging from their cover illustrations, that there is a good deal of similarity between the Steinwald and Kralik products. Even more troubling that the crimped fan vase you poi...
  7. Is it not possible that both Kralik and Steinwald purchased cages from the same supplier?
  8. The signature is ZBS and your original seller was correct.
  9. Excellent pieces in an excellent decor - good purchase.
  10. Excellent use of your stimulus money. :+)
  11. For those of us who don't have access to that reference, maybe you could scan and post the applicable page?
  12. I hadn't seen any of the previous arguments about this label before. Now, after reading them, I have to agree with Kevin that this label is suspicious at best.
  13. Charcoal - thanks, I've seen that link before but all that it tells me is that Rückl probably made that mottled red vase.
  14. Keep seizing those days! This shut-down and isolation has provided an unrecognized but needed opportunity for relaxation.
  15. Am I the only one who clicked the link in comment #5 and found nothing that even closely resembled what was being discussed? I see three Welz pieces, one other piece with a similar decor, and no label...
  16. If any of the marks were exporter or distributor applied, I think that the so-called "smile mark" would be, from my observations, the most likely contender to have been so. I think it may be premature...
  17. This type of cabinet is usually called a flat file or a specimen file.
  18. Eulogy for an old friend - Thanks everyone for reading it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz51CARXYRQ
  19. Thanks Vy - you've done a good job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIJqwupDnW0 Aerosmith did a cover years ago.
  20. There's a collector for everything I hear. :+)
  21. Thanks Vy - and I hope the off-handed comments I've made on your posts have been accepted in fun. Your posts come closer to my reality than you could probably imagine. And thanks to those others wh...
  22. Thomas - I had no intention of "stepping on your toes". It was at your invitation that I posted in this "Way Back Wednesday" string as I thought you might be interested in what I, and others, had in o...
  23. Yeah, six is a bunch. Fortunately they all get along reasonably well. There are four of them that live in the house and two more that are full-time semi-feral residents of the back yard. There's rarel...
  24. Cats are great. There are a half dozen of them that live with me.
  25. Carpe diem amigo.
  26. We need an edit comment button - forgive the omitted "was".
  27. I was comparing the two publications and realized this page only produced once. The bottom two panels make it pretty clear that BB bought from Kralik and Welz, The upper section makes me think there m...
  28. Is that about Joe Scarborough?
  29. Sunny Williams (or whatever your name is now), please forgive the embarrassing scenes this song caused.
  30. That orange one is wacky - good show.
  31. In my high school drama class, we not only had to learn "Modern Major General" but were supposed to be able to recite it in one breath.
  32. I see Said the blind man as he put down his hammer and saw.
  33. The white one is amazing.
  34. Glad to contribute. I hope this record has the same effect on everyone who listens to it.
  35. My yard attracts hummingbirds. They, as well, seem to like decorating their nests with blue bits.
  36. Turns out I did have one in my image file - similar to your orange one. Did you buy these in Europe?
  37. Youtube is a little thin for Bernie Green. This album can be listened to track by track here - https://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2008/07/more-bernie-gre.html
  38. Thanks for the love.
  39. Yes - thanks Iggy, thanks Karen. I get bored pretty quickly with the mainstream.
  40. Cool - I don't think I've ever seen that peloton decor before.
  41. Before I read the rest of this series of posts I just wanted to say - Good job. You might be surprised how many of us around the world have pieces of that wall.
  42. Breaking news - https://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2020/03/archaeologists-uncover-hundreds-of-old-beer-bottles-in-leeds/
  43. Yeah, there's some dust on the banjo. We did "Louie Louie" but I liked playing that. Actually, we had fun with "Gloria" too.
  44. You are a bell - ring loudly, ring true.
  45. Back in the late '60s I was playing in a band that was on the teen club and frat party circuit. There were some songs we had to know - "Gloria", "Season of the Witch", and "Ode to Billie Joe". I got s...
  46. Thanks for the links. Andre Popp wrote "Love Is Blue" - this album was a diversion for him as well.
  47. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBVcFWyXG7Y
  48. Don't tempt me Thomas. I'm sure I can drag out some more clunkers too.
  49. Yes, "Sooner" or Ozark art glass, made by a dozen or so small companies in the Arkansas / Oklahoma border area. Orville Hamon, of Scott Depot Glass, held the patent for this type of glass and is gener...
  50. In the '50s he was Freddy Martin and His Martin Men.
