  1. Not at all ignorance. Look in the opening where the drawer is missing. You can't see into the drawer below it. The wooden separator is called a dust panel. Seldom seen in furniture today.
  2. Indeed to an extent the new picture helps. I see a dust panel between the drawers. Dust panels were only installed in top of the line furniture. Lower quality there were none.
  3. Aaugust14 - Looking at the end grain of the wood that shows in the dovetails I sooner think this is a member of the nut family as opposed to Mahogany. Quite possibly black walnut having originated in ...
  4. First bit of info: Read the site rules. You don't ask value here. You use the appraisal link at the top of the page.
  5. Lacquer Thinner should remove about any glue or mastic but it will need to be applied and NOT brushed in. Lay it right on good and let it soak in. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't dry again, you should...
  6. I think but not 100% sure that this would be BM & Spyderco knives, the BM meaning Bench Made & Spyderco.
  7. Stuffed monkey. eBay is full of them from the 70's to early 2000's. Lots of them for sale but very few actually sell. Still to common to have much collector value because the mass production flooded t...
  8. Crazy No they are NOT recommended for relief of hemorrhoid itch either.
  9. Crazy actually that wouldn't work at all well because these are quite flexible and shifting wouldn't be easy. They have to be flexible or you can't maneuver them up under slate shingles.
  10. Here is a new one that is sold at Home Depot. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Dasco-Pro-24-in-Shingle-Ripper-640/202519559
  11. Looks like a picture off the web. Anyway it is used to remove slate shingles from a roof. We called them rippers. Very common tool even today
  12. Bb2 try this link. You can pig out big time and first class. https://www.etsy.com/listing/260272901/creamed-possum-garnished-with-sweet?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=s...
  13. Not a coin. It is a token or medallion type trinket made to wear as a necklace. They also make buttons like this. The coin was about .888 silver and not gold tone. If you just type.... Burg go.tyr.178...
  14. If you found just the top cap it would be so expensive you would have no value in what you have. You would be better to sell this one for parts and buy one that is whole. They are common and not at al...
  15. Bb2 that would be an interesting meet & greet.
  16. They aren't native to Florida but they thrive here. If you have one living near by they are easy to tame, especially younger ones. They tend to be reclusive but once tamed they will follow you around ...
  17. lptools - when I blew the image up it looks like a push pull type fitting. I see no threads for twist but everything is right for push pull. The plumber snake came to mind because this type crank was ...
  18. Looks like it was made to use with an ink pad for a stamping ring.
  19. doesn't look like a drill chuck on the end. More like a hand crank plumbers snake fitting.
  20. Love it. Not many of us left around who actually drove a crank up dump. I see your name is essex. I have a picture here somewhere of my friends Essex on a Chevy S-10 frame with a 350 motor. We only go...
  21. Looks like a spinner in the bottom. Does this take batteries or have an AC connection?
  22. Lakeside Foundry was only in business 18 years when it was sold and became Lakeside Forge. This stove appears to be a coal/wood burning stove, probably made 1910 - 1915 and sold by Montgomery Ward. De...
  23. Amazing. After you deleted my comment you got it right. Welcome to CW. You will do fine now.
  24. Vynil BMW = Bavarian Motor Works. Try Volkswagen, the peoples wagen.
  25. Keep in mind that just because it is written in German doesn't mean it was used there. Germans travel just like all of us. This could have been used in any country to prod Germans to obey local custom...
  26. WAAAAAY back when I was a teen I could pick his show up on AM radio about 9 at night. It was out of Slidell, LA and I was in Vermont. Fun listening. I sat on the front steps listening to him and count...
  27. scott either I am not explaining right or you aren't understanding what I am saying. As I said in my first post, it is an infantry insignia. Anyone who has ever been in the Army knows that immediatel...
  28. Scott I didn't save the link but believe they were elements of the 88th Bn. They moved into Italy where the 338th provided support for the 339th until they were dug in. At that point roles reversed a...
  29. scott according to the unit history they did indeed support the 339th Field artillery. They provided a perimeter defense.
  30. Sorry should read 1943. My typo
  31. 338th infantry battalion 1948, the F is for field artillery as they supported the 339th Field Artillery.
  32. I still have parts of one I bought during the 80's. Discount store item that flopped. Go get a Berger if you want a transit or a Bosch.
  33. Ok, I guess that means unless I agree with you I should shut up because you have no idea what to do when you open your mouth and put your foot in it. If you intend making a statement like 11,ooo BC on...
  34. Stock market is down but the price of scrap silver is up to about $12.80 an ounce.
  35. So what you are saying is it hasn't been authenticated or dated, except for your personal opinion. Occams Razor neither proves or dis proves anything. When you have it examined by a professional and a...
  36. I hate to ruin your big dream ......but...when I was a kid up north. During the winter everyone who hunted went out to their wood shed and fished out a good chunk and spent their nights sitting by the...
  37. Who authenticated this and dated it? I don't even see a tusk, I see a stone from the gravel pit.
  38. They were sold by Montgomery & Wards during the late 1950's.
  39. I would sooner think it is war years when the government held contracts on hardwoods. This appears to be a pretty much common dresser made of yellow pine from the grain I can see.
  40. Pictures are way to close up. I would say it is a sad iron heater. Hot coals go in the bottom and irons sit on the platform.
  41. I agree with flashlarue.
  42. That is a two prong wool bale hook. You probably won't ever see another. This liiks homemade almost. Here is a little fancier model: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/249150066/vintage-double-two-pr...
  43. Well, it is a wing back gliding rocker. You should have taken pictures of the spring system and rocking hardware. Looking old and actually being an antique are two totally different things.
  44. Try researching Michelobe beer bottles. Although I probably misspelled it.
  45. If it just says Korea rather than Made in Korea, it could be pre tariff act. Although there are a few exceptions to the rule. Does this mean when we come to visit you will be passing the plate? I ...
  46. This is a Proctor & Gamble bottle. Clearly marked. Proctor & Gamble bought Old Spice in 1990.
  47. The answer to your puzzle is in the mark. In the pewter world it is called a "touch mark", not a makers mark. Research the pitcher with the word Pewter inside and your puzzle will be solved.
  48. Actually it is a jeweler's loop. Here is an example on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-ATCO-USA-Jewelers-Loupe-w-Leather-Holder-Stitching-Has-Come-Out-/392296030662?autorefresh=true
  49. Definitely homemade. The outside corner molding is not something a furniture maker would do. It was added as an after thought to hide the end grain. If you could trace the family tree back 60 years yo...
  50. I think I might refer to that as vintage rather than antique. I have some of it my late mother in law bought just after WWII.
  51. See more
