Just old and finally have time to go through things and figure out what I have. A little of everything I would say.

Only tools I ever saw with an offset in the handle like this was tools used to pack oakum or lead in a cast iron pipe joint.
The seat is common and may or may not be original. Can you show a picture of the underside in good light? I wouldn't rush to call them antiques just yet.
UncleRon I think Walmart still sells these. Lots of them in the knife section of eBay so they seem to be popular. I thought about buying one but by the time it became a collectable in demand I would ...
Probably late 1800 or early 1900's. My great grandmother had them.
That is a shoe button hook kit
I think this is much newer than you think. Also the replacement hinges are installed upside down.
I would agree with scottvez but lean more toward the teens or 20's. I do not believe this was hand carved. There are no chase marks nor the usual small imperfections you find in hand carved pieces. It...
That's one way to get a straw in a wine bottle.
Another 2 cents from me. Looking at it and the images in metal and the shape, I wonder if it might have been a religious icon or ornament. The horseshoe shape, open end up would indicate good luck or ...
Agree with timber scribe.
Looks like a bad hair day. Sorry I couldn't resist saying that. No disrespect intended.
If you want to be bored, work hard and restore/patch that marble I can give you lessons learned information. I had to learn to patch up marble the hard way....until I met someone older than me that la...
Hunter You are right about a one piece knob. I would guess the wood to be bocote but not positive. The grain on the knob is pretty open. Only take an hour or so to turn a knob once you match the woo...
ho2cultcha I didn't mean to imply that it wasn't Mexican, only that it is probably more recent and not aged well yet. Very well could be Mexican.
I have two cases of Famous Amos cookies stashed in my spare room. I am addicted to them. 42 bags per case. Get them cheap at Sam's Club.
The pictures are blurry and if they are 2005 they certainly aren't new where I live. I would put them at 13 years old. Can you provide clear pictures and explain what you see as errors?
The clay doesn't look like it has aged. I have some older Mexican red clay items and it looks totally different. But my items are quite vintage and not antique. Could be this is just a new piece.
If you go to this site and scroll way down it shows both wedges and how they are used to split stone. I believe these are Asian wedges but all are similar. http://www.rtleverich.com/now/
I can't see them well but they look like stone splitting wedges. I will give you a link where you can see some typical ones from the USA. http://www.stonestructures.org/html/quarry_tools.html
I am with Beethoven, because even if you are blown up and can't hear you can still function.
The legs and base look to be Gabon Ebony. I can't see the top well but it appears to have an odd grain pattern. I doubt it is terribly old because the bottoms of the feet show modern machinery used on...
Sounds like a great collection pw-collector. My mother's Orphan Annie will be passed on to a grand daughter. I can't seem to bring myself to sell them so I pass them along. I had a really nice 1882 co...
Sorry, the person who told you not why
The pictures are blurry but you should go back to the person why told you it was 1700"s and get some provenance because I don't see it.
blunderbuss2 just tip a couple up and relax and you will be able to see the association. Kinda like the girls getting prettier at closing time.
You can date it by the markings on it. They used different lines in the marks from year to year. This isn't an antique because I bought the same knife in the late 1950's at the local hardware store.
I have a 1930's Orphan Annie that my mother got for her 10th birthday. She over wound it the first week and never wore it again. I had Roy Rogers & Trigger and Babe Ruth but passed them along to my so...
Based on the dimensions I will say you have a nursing rocker/mother's chair/sewing chair they are known by each of the names and not at all a child's rocker. The chair dimensions are for an adult. A c...
I told ya scottvez would know. Kudo's scott
Looks possibly trench art. Perhaps scottvez will comment on this. He is excellent when it comes to trench art.
You are making an assumption when you call this a child's rocking chair and I believe you are wrong from what I see in the pictures. Could you provide a measurement from the floor to the top of the se...
Your next question to be answered is what era did this come from. You will need professional help to date it. Give it hell.
I was thinking a stove finial in that it is cast or possibly the top of andirons .
I was thinking a stove finial in that it is cast.
The end view, pic #3 looks similar to coprolite. The only way to be sure is have it tested. Perhaps a local college would have the ability to test it.
Every time you post wire I kick myself so hard. I was metal detecting out on the prairie in Kansas and old wire kept setting off my detector. I finally spent an hour rolling up the wire and hung it in...
The question would be is it worth saving? I suspect the cost to rework it would be far more than what it would be worth in terms of selling it when finished.
I love it and it does fit in well with the display. I notice the Gulf sign with 23.9 price. I remember as a kid it was 17.9 cents a gallon. Dad would give me two dimes and a glass gallon jug to go get...
It is a wood stove. If it were wood or coal you would have a grate shaker. I believe we have done SUN stoves on here before and if you look in the proper section there is information to guide you in y...
Unfortunately someone ruined this piece with good intentions. In picture #2 you can see where 2 screws of such have been driven into the end grain of the arms. You never do that because end grain not ...
I absolutely love it. I have a JD D-105 automatic that I use as my helper. At 70 and poor health I count on the Deere to help me out. Looks like you did a fine job on an old basket case. That you...
Brunswick I totally believe you because it is quite common in floors in very old homes all over the country. Unlike today, rooms back then were seldom built to be square. Homeowners built their own w...
Pictures of flowers don't help date a chair, they could have been added anytime. The construction and joinery does.
That is mammy and the chef. Just google them and you will find 1000's of them for sale online. They are pretty common, especially unmarked.
Possibly a mal formed clam broth marble. The colors are right but the way they are presented is wrong. By that I mean the blue should be swirls. Research clam broths marbles and you will see what I me...
I agree with scottvez on it not being the original top. Years ago it was common to use reclaimed lumber to make a new table top. Normally the boards were just laid beside each other and stabilizer cle...
The guy who actually wore badge 714 was a guy named Cook or Cooke. He helped Jack Webb with material for the show. When Webb died the LAPD retired that badge number. The badge and ID of Jack Webb were...
Thanks Manikin Initially there was a moment I thought about selling it. On second thought it might be well received at the Abenaki Museum for others to enjoy for years to come. I have been to one of ...
Yes, what ever it once was it has been reworked by a novice who had no idea what he was doing. Look at the back spindles....everything is a terrible mismatch. If the chair is solid and you don't fal...
I am with you because I don't believe the story either.
