  1. Clock key is certainly another possibility. Time clocks that security guards punch their clocks with also take a key like this. Lots of possibilities. To bad the key isn't marked.
  2. Possibly an old roller skate key. They came in all different designs. Some had a round hole in the end, some triangular, some rectangles, some square. Some were like this and others had a wrench on th...
  3. This is called a blacksmith's double caliper. If you google it I am sure you will find it. They aren't commonly found much anymore. You can find them for sale online for some big asking prices.
  4. He brought it home from New Guinea but did he actually buy it there or somewhere along the way. I would ask her that question.
  5. If all the joints are tight there is no reason it won't work to heat a room. Check all the joints, including the doors for tight fit. If you have an open joint a spark can get out and start a fire. St...
  6. You didn't mention what the dimensions of the stove are, but laundry stoves were frequently smaller than something like cook stove or parlor stove. Many of them had a tank that mounted where the stove...
  7. The pictures are nothing but a blur. These rulers were mass produced and even an old one in good condition wouldn't get you a big mac. No you don't get fries and a drink either.
  8. Your nail isn't uncommon for the era. It is called a cut nail, also a box nail and a number of other things but cut nail is most common. The nail is in keeping with the date you posted. I save every o...
  9. I can tell you about it. Nobody can see it because of the glare and it is to distant. No details and only one picture that does nothing. Delete your post and try again. You can post more than one pict...
  10. My late wife used one like this to make, Jewish Apple Cake. Don't even ask how I just know she did.
  11. Newfld is basically right. When I was a kid these weren't electric and there was a pull handle on the right side ( like a slot machine handle). They would enter the amount and push the button then ent...
  12. PS: This was referred to as swing era furniture on the pages I read
  13. I found two of these online and both were almost identical except yours has the longer handle on the side. Both were stated to be from the 1940's. Interestingly one I found was owned by Elvis Presley ...
  14. I enjoyed the joke images but more than that it was an educational narrative that came with it. Thank you for sharing and explaining.
  15. I used to collect ashtrays so had to look for this one. Research "wedgewood ashtray with pegasus", you will find dozens of them. Good luck.
  16. Well this is not a piece made by Karpen. It simply says Karpen Guaranteed Construction. The metal tag is the answer to your question. If the tag read S. Karpen & Bros. it would be an original. This wa...
  17. Your first indication this is a fake is the word IN GODWE no space between God and We. The design was never used on a silver dollar, the design is based on the quarter design that was released in 1932.
  18. The 1865 George Washington coin in the second picture is what is called a fantasy coin.
  19. This looks almost exact to the one I have posted trying to date. One clock site I posted it on I was told that without the Grand Medaille d'Honneur symbol then this would have been pre 1860. Nobody co...
  20. I agree that it is to finish concrete. I am at a loss to call it by name but I seem to think it is a bowl float.
  21. I would research "Windsor Style Chair". There is a major difference between an actual Windsor and a Windsor Style chair.
  22. Those are called pin and cove dovetails. They started using them in the 1880's but they were used well beyond that. Your piece has a two rib cut top and bottom of each drawer which helps speak for it'...
  23. When I lived up north I had a set like this but mine were granite salesman's samples. New Hampshire is the Granite State and that is where I lived so getting mine was fairly easy. Thanks for sharin...
  24. From the Internet: The Tennessee Manufacturing Company is a complex of six historic buildings in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.[2] They were built from 1869 to 1953.[2] The company was founded by Samue...
  25. Well said UncleRon, you talk like a man who jacked a few and skinned them before inviting them to lunch.
  26. Ok UncleRon I will order them, you pay for them and we will split the profit.
  27. Thanks to all for the loves and comments. ho2 posted a Buddha a couple days ago and asked me to post mine. I have another more common one still. It is glass and looks like milk glass but I have no ide...
  28. Manikin, sure is.
  29. Back then I was collecting Buddha but only have two or three left.
  30. ho2 I just got him down. Recharging the camera and will post him shortly.
  31. My most logical question is how do you know it is a Johnson Chair Company chair? Is it marked or are you guessing or taking a salesman's word for it? It is a swivel/tilt chair and Johnson did make the...
  32. It is a difficult bullet to bite but I think Gillian pretty well summed it up. The stuff you are posting is in really rough shape. If it has sentimental value that is about what it is worth.
  33. Your kerosene heater is worth more if you have to make a decision between the two. Depending on where you are going in Florida the heater will come in handy when it gets cold and raw down here.
  34. Sounds kind of corny but if it sold at that price plus over $400 in fees I suppose corny is good. I'd like to find a dozen of them.
  35. I tend to think this was probably made during the 1970's. There was a few years everyone was making round flasks and they became a fad. Even Avon made a run of them.
  36. ho2cultcha I used to collect Buddhas back in the 60's and 70's. I will have to get my big one down off the shelf and dust him off and post him. I bought him in Europe in 67. Most of mine I have either...
  37. These were popular in the late 80's and early 90's. My wife bought me one. They came with all different sayings and characters. Discount store item. I believe mine was purchased at the now out of busi...
  38. lzenglish that looks close and shows him an example of the part number tag. The one he has posted above has a part number embossed in the tail stock that could be traced. I sold the Dunlap motor for ...
  39. Is the lathe marked at all? It looks like an older 36" bed model. Sears lathes back then were marked and normally painted red or red and green. Believe it or not the old motors are worth more than the...
  40. My only comment would be regarding the wood. Looking at the grain and color in an enlarged image would tend to indicate to me it is African Padauk hardwood or a wood of the same species, A/K/A Vermill...
  41. You need to supply us with the words and mark before you get much help. While it may have been in an antique mall it certainly doesn't appear to be an antique. Knife and sheath both appear to be quite...
  42. Thanks to all for the loves and comments. I will pass them along when he returns Next week. Manikin I thought you for sure would appreciate what this means. You did your time in another war. I can...
  43. Some may use it as a rice bowl but when I was young they were used on the farm to feed grain to young calves, goats etc.
  44. Being a proud father I had to share it.
  45. I had a WWII era machete made by this company that my father in law brought home from Luzon after the war. I have since given that to my son but I did research it first. At the time I did research I f...
  46. I would say your first hunch was right. Put a handle on it and you have a potato hook.
  47. Not a great photo but possibly for digging clams or oysters.
  48. lzenglish I also haven't changed coil springs in a good 50 years but did use this type clamp. Not to compress the spring but to simply hold the spring in the compressed position. I never happened to...
  49. Back when my wife was alive we would go out from Friday thru Sunday and buy every wooden cigar box we could find. Even the plain wooden boxes. We turned some really great money on eBay selling them. T...
  50. Spaghetti tongs...(for a midget).
