  1. When I enlarge picture #2 the teeth on this are rasp as opposed to a file. I sooner think it is a cornering tool.
  2. I have to love this. Back in the 60's when I was a boy scout these were the thing to have to take to camp during the summer and came in handy during the winter when a blizzard took the power out. I th...
  3. In closing I will wish you well and say I respect your right to your opinion. Have a good evening.
  4. Not at all like the bookstore guy and this isn't a snuff video. Although we can post holocaust images which is fine and not seen as wrong. I don't agree with posting either but once again, that is one...
  5. Bottom of the back there are four button plugs. Behind those are screws holding the back on, the legs are plug in but you should find metal scotch fasteners inside the hole they are in. It is normal c...
  6. I certainly will have my own opinion. If it were a male athlete wearing just his speedo nobody would call it porn, nor would they call it art. Myself I would call it a double standard. There is nothin...
  7. Bunch of interesting comments about this being porn. If we cut her arms off so she looks more like Venus de milo I assume the prudes here would be satisfied and in total awe of the wonderful art pictu...
  8. I bet gatekeeper will know if he sees it.
  9. I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid. I don't know the official use but my great grandmother put jewelry in it and kept it on her bed stand. She also had a wind up alarm clock with the same r...
  10. Right you are vetraio50. The two handle cups are commonly found at weddings. They have a woman's face on one side and a man's face on the other. Where their ears would be is where the handles are. The...
  11. The handle of the far left knife looks like one Imperial made around 1960. Problem being the sheath is wrong if it is an Imperial from that time. The sheath in the middle would be correct for an imper...
  12. Frisco - I would say you are correct. The picture is so bad I couldn't see the rolled up edges. I downloaded the picture and changed it to a negative black and white and I can now see it more clearl...
  13. I never saw an ash shovel without rounded sides to keep the ash from falling off. I sooner think it was used to put perhaps a bread pan in a bee hive oven etc. I have seen and restored a number of bee...
  14. This stop is not a Hubley it is a National #149 stop. The Hubley would have been item #331. If you compare the reverse of both note the locations of the screw, back of head etc.
  15. I can't tell you about the marks, however this is called a "Pass Cup". You would take a drink and pass the cup and the next person could take it by a different handle. I think but not positive they we...
  16. I wouldn't replace it for a minute nor would I consider it dangerous. You have a steel service box mounted on a fireproof brick wall. All lines feeding it and load lines are in fireproof conduit. You ...
  17. After blowing up the pictures I feel sure the black wood in the handle is Gabon Ebony from Africa. Where the knife was made I have no idea but the ebony is from Africa. I have some in my shop and a va...
  18. Collectables59 - You are quite right. The fancier ones can be worth a hefty sum. I will provide a link below, if you scroll down the page they show a more simple cage decorated for an actual wedding. ...
  19. You have the name of the company that made it. Just research them and you should find all the info you need. On a side note, try to preserve the inspection tax stamp. It may be worth more than the cha...
  20. Perfect example of what happens when you stick your nose in where it doesn't belong.
  21. ho2cultcha - they are well noted for that. My Buddha is also Italian alabaster. They produce all kinds of Asian pieces. The craftsmanship is great if you don't mind an Italian Buddha. Not sure about h...
  22. PhilDMorris - thanks for the info I will give that a try on a small place where it won't show and see how it goes. This and my big Buddah both could sure use a cleaning.
  23. Newfld I doubt you will ever see many ashtrays that weigh 4 pounds. No fear of this one tipping over or sliding off a table.
  24. I believe EAM would be Elgin America.
  25. Thought I would post them before they find a new home.
  26. I wanted to post this before I decide where it will find a new home.
  27. Had you looked there is information right here from another poster. Here is the link. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/214953-different-etruscan-urn-marks-of-the-my
  28. They are single cut pruning shears. I have a pair just like them that belonged to my father. He owned a tree nursery in Vermont long ago. These would be from the late 1940's to 50's. My dad finally wo...
  29. I so much love these posts. I had over 300 of these from days gone by. A few years ago the wife and I gave them all for children to have at Christmas. A collection gone but happy faces at Christmas. ...
  30. Looks like a steam box. Maybe for steaming clams etc.
  31. It is common for states to auction stuff off when they upgrade. I used to go to the state auctions all the time. They sell everything from cars to computers to desks etc. You can buy good stuff for pe...
  32. Everything you need to research the stove is in the last picture. You have the company name and address. Their history is documented online and their catalogs are also online.
  33. The glass looks like 1800's telegraph wire insulators.
  34. You didn't search terribly hard because they have a web site and Facebook page. You could have simply asked them.
  35. Looks like the head end of a spear.
  36. 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.
  37. 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.
  38. 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 ...
  39. Probably late 1800 or early 1900's. My great grandmother had them.
  40. That is a shoe button hook kit
  41. I think this is much newer than you think. Also the replacement hinges are installed upside down.
  42. 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...
  43. That's one way to get a straw in a wine bottle.
  44. 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 ...
  45. Agree with timber scribe.
  46. Looks like a bad hair day. Sorry I couldn't resist saying that. No disrespect intended.
  47. 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...
  48. 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...
  49. 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.
  50. 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.
  51. See more
