  1. OK, thanks I didn't know that. Mine was sold to us as a place to rest spoons etc while cooking so as to not make a mess on the stove top.
  2. Those are spoon holders you keep on the stove to set your spoon in that you are cooking with....right?
  3. I tend to agree with Phil. I base that on the shelf supports, they are quite modern from what I see in photo #1
  4. The design is totally wrong for slate work. It might well be a log marker as Motoolz suggested but I never saw a marker this light weight. I suggested swage blocks because in less hardened materials l...
  5. I believe you have a hammer made for making swage blocks.
  6. Yup, commonly called a tack hammer. They were popular years ago.
  7. There is a table like this on Barneby's auctions which closed December 18. It appeared there were no bids on it. I believe it was listed as a table cabinet. In the event you didn't know, Barneby's is ...
  8. I live in Florida and have seen them at flea markets here. There is a name for them which I can't remember. I seem to think it had something to do with the rising sun which is in the center of it and ...
  9. 1950's or 60's. The top was removable because it wouldn't fit through most doors back then. Common desk. This is not the place for asking value as per the rules which are available to read. Try the ap...
  10. I have seen these original Hubley cats but never owned one. It should have number 1248 as it's item number. I haven't seen one with the red tongue but sure have seen them with green eyes.
  11. I need a sign like this for my front door. Try and enter and it will be a dead end.
  12. Boiled linseed oil is the natural resin from trees and will give new life to old wood without damage. ONLY BOILED LINSEED OIL. Raw linseed oil will never dry and would remain sticky. Darn nice old box.
  13. This isn't a Hubley or a National. I would think it to be a reproduction. The paint is wrong as are the screw locations. This may have been made from a Hubley mold after Hubley sold their molds. I soo...
  14. Please post more pictures. Especially the back side where the screws are and the bottom to include the bottoms of the feet.
  15. The picture is a little dark but regardless of that I would say it is a Maddox knee hole desk. If so they were in Jamestown, NY I believe. The design and top lead me to believe it is one of their piec...
  16. When Maniken gets on and sees this she will be able to help. Mani is our local doll.
  17. I think scottvez hit this one pretty exactly. Both the dovetails and the casters place this piece 1900, give or take a decade. In my eyes the imperfections give it character.
  18. It is certainly post war I would say 50's or 60's. IF it isn't marked then it could have many origins from a private furniture maker to Sears Roebuck. As for value, if you read the rules before you po...
  19. I would agree that it is unique but I see only where it is worn from a flow of water not carving. There are folks who collect odd stone so you might google for a rock collector site and see what they ...
  20. I think you are being overly generous with your estimated age and I don't agree with the dovetails being hand cut. Just my 2 cents.
  21. I missed your dimensions above sorry for my error. The dimensions are right on for not being a reproduction. This stop is listed under story book and nursery rhymes. They are also listed as unknown ma...
  22. Please provide the height, width & length. These were originally mounted on either wood or cast iron bases.
  23. If you really want to keep the kids out rig it with some electric fence parts. They will learn quickly. Hehehe
  24. This looks like an after market patch someone made and sold. It is sloppy stitching and the lettering isn't something normally seen in an I corps shoulder patch or their flag. Just my 2 cents.
  25. The company sold replicas of guns, knives, swords etc. You can find plenty of their replicas for sale online and none are worth a great deal. From what I have seen there isn't a big market for their p...
  26. This is a gimmick sign associated with Marilyn Monroe Boulevard of Broken Dreams. It is worth about 12 or 15 dollars at best. If you aren't familiar with Boulevard of Broken Dreams then research it. ...
  27. I would agree with scottvez on this being a server. Looking at the steel casters and wood I think perhaps early war years. As for the wood involved in making this I see a mix of ash and oak which are ...
  28. I was at Fort Dix in 67, Vietnam in 68 and back to Dix in 69. When I got back from Nam I was put on riot control and remember this well. It was totally inflated but there was an unpopular war going on...
  29. I will put a link here. Once opened scroll to page 5, right hand side. There is discussion about this company being formed in 1894 and continued on page 6 a discussion of their ovarian products. The s...
  30. I also found this in the official New and Nonofficial remedies by the council of pharmacies 1919 edition so I assume that would be a start date.
  31. The October 5, 1922 edition of National Assn. of Retail Druggist's lists this 1 ounce bottle of ovary powder at $24. Pretty steep price for back then.
  32. You might try researching Thormann Firma. He was German. The original patent expired in 1929 and this appears to be 1931 or later from what I have found.
  33. Wife #2 loved this song. Wives #1, #3, #4 & #5 would listen to it and enjoy it so it certainly appeals to a wide and varied audience.
  34. Yes the seven are there. Notice the empty spot at the far right of picture #2. That spot is reserved for me.
  35. Don't feel bad BB I went to look for the picture and forgot which computer it is on. I have three desk tops and a laptop in front of me and I am beginning to have issues keeping things sorted out. The...
  36. Maybe it was a bus??? Hell I wasn't there but I think a train but memory isn't my best friend anymore.
  37. I have a photo of my late wife and her family at the top of the peak in 1963. They rode the train up and naturally everyone on the train posed together in a group for a picture. My wife was 12 years o...
  38. rniederman Yes I am fully aware of what you are saying. The appraisal is nothing more than a means of gathering the information I failed to get previously. The other items I had Barnaby's appraise I ...
  39. Not at all offended because I grew up with these years ago. The originals were cast iron. They could be purchased at the local A&P Tea Store or if you were shopping on Friday night (payday) there woul...
  40. Additionally, Barnaby's was not informed of where the original owner got this or when, however their report contained the correct information as it was told to me by the original owner. Having read a ...
  41. Budek I got my appraisal back from Barneby's this morning, right on schedule. I will be posting it shortly. I had posted it on here a couple years ago seeking information without luck. After all the ...
  42. AnythingObscure is 100 % right. I have a pair and they sure came in handy after hurricane Irma hit us. They are quite common and contractors use them all the time.
  43. scottvez the guy does seem quite frustrated in his post. My experience with Barneby's was quite the opposite. I got a detailed price, history etc. I took one more step after getting their appraisal a...
  44. Budek This article from Forbes might give everyone more insight into Barneby's appraisal service. They are a respected booming company. https://www.forbes.com/sites/karstenstrauss/2015/05/11/the-...
  45. I agree with Phil. The one we had back in the 50's the base also lit up by pushing a push button switch on the base. It was kind of a floor level night light for when the other lights in the room were...
  46. You need a little age to remember that song.
  47. Reminds me of the 1951, Jo Stafford song; The Shrimp Boats are a Commin.
  48. Budek It might be worth it to use the appraisal service at the top of the page for this item. The cost isn't terribly steep and the results of their research will put your curiosity to rest. I am ab...
  49. I think you are pretty close on the date. I would say late 40's to mid 50's. During the war years the kit had a tourniquet included. Then by late 50's or early 60's as I recall they went to plastic ca...
  50. Well I will throw in my two cents. I to have what I thought was a really odd stone that had been hollowed out. After over 30 years of wondering and researching I used the appraisal service on the top ...
