  1. https://www.google.com/search?source=univ&tbm=isch&q=antique+dibble&client=firefox-b-1-d&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjp3YWfqJzuAhXoYt8KHevpCpMQjJkEegQIBRAB&biw=1692&bih=932
  2. Look up a "dibble" and that should satisfy your curiosity.
  3. The mark 1 standing lion should be the Lion Passant (check my spelling on Passant) indicates a swiss item if I am correct.
  4. The sheath has nothing to do with this piece of cutlery. Looks to be early 1900's give or take a few years. Sheffield Museum might be able to be more accurate. As you didn't read the site rules, this ...
  5. Along with that, the guy says he has sold three of them. A castle key or any other key that old that was verified authentic should command a better dollar. Combined with the fact you can buy Vatican r...
  6. I seem to think scottvez may be right but could you post a picture of the other side just to see where and hoe worn the key is?
  7. You seem sure it is a letter opener and may have been used as one. The picture makes it look a bit long, can you provide a length?
  8. I have one the same here that belonged to my late mother in law. Mine has a tattered sticker that says made in either Italy or France, I forget which. I do know I researched it and found it to be from...
  9. Made between 1902 -1914. I will post you a link below. https://www.dphtrading.com/customer-service/quality/age-determine-of-bing-og-groendahl
  10. What you find in this site FAQ's. Rotate your photos. After the shoot, be sure to rotate your photos if needed so they appear right-side up. Images shot with a smartphone or tablet sometimes do not...
  11. Otoscope made around 1950's.
  12. You are following my train of thought Irish. I was leaning toward a blood letting tool to take a specimen for testing.
  13. In the image there appears to be a raised word on the handle. Could you please let us know what that word is? Also a length and any movable parts please.
  14. Looks like a trinket for a bracelet. How big is it?
  15. Vintage fish scaling knife.
  16. Looks like WW!! trench art.
  17. I would imagine Scottvez will know when he logs on
  18. Looks like an old fence wire tensioner. $3 is about right.
  19. I'm older than dirt and this has a few years on me. I can tell you to take care of it and proceed with caution. Long ago I collected Orvis rods, some were quite valuable and others not so much. Get an...
  20. You are right on the age of it and pretty much on what it is for although people found lots of uses for them, cards were the major use. My grandparents had theirs hung in the living room beside the fr...
  21. Haven't been able to go find it yet. Youngest son up north was put in hospital last night so been otherwise occupied. Will do my best to have a look for it today.
  22. I remember this design from when I was a kid ( also 1950's ) I think I still have one in the original packet, unopened they came in. They were a fad sort of. Some had different thickness fingers and w...
  23. Other than the screws where someone botched a repair in the picture even the nails are not looking that old. Same for the wheel and hub in pic #4. I would proceed slowly. Nobody can tell from a pictur...
  24. I lived right next to you in New England but that didn't make my buggies old, just very old looking. Mine even showed more wear and age than this one does. They are a fun show thing.
  25. I have had several of these in different sizes. All were wonderfully done reproductions from the Philippians that flooded the markets here back during the 70's and 80's. The work they did on them is r...
  26. Try posting your question on their Facebook page and you will probably get accurate information.
  27. Elisabethan - Your question is impossible to answer without actually seeing the chair in person. It very well could be from the era you suggest, however, without seeing the chair, the joinery etc it i...
  28. It is a gargoyle barrel chair. They were quite popular for a period of time. Like a fad that faded. Just research, vintage gargoyle barrel chair, you should find plenty of them all different designs d...
  29. Prince William of Wales, made in 1982, number 59 out of 500 made in 82. eBay is full of them if you take a moment to look. From various years and when you check, very few actually sell. Seems either p...
  30. All the information you need to research the lighter is on the bottom of the outer case. Zippo has an online ( FREE ) database to trace their lighters. These were quite popular to all of us in Nam who...
  31. He certainly is a colorful little guy. Kind of perk you up just looking at him.
  32. I would agree with it being turned as the lines show even where painted in some areas. Old? In relation to what? The cracking is normal if the wood isn't treated properly. If it doesn't leak you can s...
  33. If the end inside the barrel is blunt I say a brad driver or possibly anchor set for a PC board. Both work the same way.
  34. In general Telematics refers to an electrical/computerized system in an automobile.
  35. One picture isn't much help. Is the barrel hollow when you compress it? If so then it may be a brad driver. When the barrel is compressed does a point come out? If so then it could be an electrical te...
  36. Poor or no quality control is how he got out. I have a number of unopened cans that were intended to have everything from beer to spaghetti sauce, oil, corned beef and even OTC medicine bottles. Seems...
  37. Looks like a hobby project or something a cub scout or girl scout did. Not old and very sloppy. Probably a kit project you buy and paint to your own liking.
  38. As I remember, these were not made by Pepsi. They were licensed to use the image but could not include the trademark marking. Most big companies do this and it results in people thinking they have an ...
  39. My first thought was, a class reunion ring from 1996.
  40. Last number blurs but I would say May 7, 66
  41. Read the serial number backward and you have the date on Lane
  42. At 18" it would be right for a coffee table. Looks taller in the photo to me. Phil is right about being good sized for sure.
  43. You are quick to declare it a coffee table. How far from the floor to the table proper? The proper is the top. It looks a bit tall in the picture.
  44. I agree with dav2no1 because I had one of these in the 50's when I was a bit younger
  45. The overall shape tends to remind me of boning and skinning knives we used years ago skinning out and butchering.
  46. kwqd now you are talking memories. I remember those days and even pulling the rope to ring the bell to announce to the entire town that it was time to get to school. So long ago and in ways an easier ...
  47. Eclipse, Mansfield, Ohio, was the name of the company that made the stove. Round Oak was located in Michigan. Two totally different animals. Eclipse made the eclipse line of stoves. Eclipse was taken ...
  48. Well, the only items I found with that type clip and triangular emblem was tie clips and oddly clips that go on the socks they wear. It appeared the socks are folded over at the top about 3 or 4 inche...
  49. The clips look more like a tie clip than a kilt pin.
  50. Ben Franklin style wood stove. Probably 1980's when they flooded the market with them. They were mostly for looks because they weren't worth a dam for heating.
