  1. Looks like an attempt to reproduce one of Rosenthal romance patterns.
  2. That is called a Franklin fireplace. Probably made during the glut in the 1980's. They were a dime a dozen and caused more fires than they produced heat. They had sloppy joints and were unlined.
  3. These were also called a library desk or library table desk because of the book shelves on the end.
  4. At 9 1/2 inches tall and in a barn I would think possibly a milking stool or for working on horse shoes/hoofs etc. I think your birth date is off by a century or century and a half.
  5. If it was used by a mason it is a tuck pointer for stone or granite work. I have a few but nothing as long as this.
  6. I collected spittoons when I lived up north. The enameled ones were supposed to be easier to clean and were heavy so they didn't tip over. Most brass ones are weighted in the bottom with sand in a sea...
  7. Everything has a value. However, it only has a value if you have someone to buy it. There are oodles of these for sale online but none I saw have any bids to buy them. I assume there is probably a sit...
  8. They had an ad in the news paper in 1953. I will post a link, scroll down center column about the third ad up from bottom. http://images.ourontario.ca/Partners/MPL/MPL002493363pf_1021.pdf
  9. It was also called graniteware
  10. Try researching a vintage agate ware double boiler pot.
  11. I think scottvez was a bit generous with the age.
  12. Simmons made axes for Keen Kutter and also Winchester. Top quality and in 1912 they sold for $18 a dozen. You have a double bit with a 3' handle which is standard. You also have a thick bit which mean...
  13. That is because it isn't called a drop leaf, it is called a fold over.
  14. B&W is (I believe) Bostons & Worcester Electric Co. or their holding company. I haven't been there in 50 years.
  15. Here is a link for Dolly Dawn and the Dawn Patrol. http://www.petersando.com/dollyd.html
  16. I found an old clipping about the company. It was originally Knoxville table Co. and in the last years became Knoxville Table and Chair Co. They operated from 1900 thru 1935 and mass produced low qual...
  17. Carving on the leg appears to be a fleur de lis or variation of it.
  18. Obviously they didn't mean the American civil war.
  19. Mine is embossed on the bottom with maker, part number etc. that is how I checked it. It takes 6 or 8 D-cell batteries or a power cord.
  20. I have one the same color that came out in the 70's. Mine is AM/FM and cassette player. Mine is rather large and weighs 19 pounds. I have been offered $100 for it but guess I will pass because it is u...
  21. If a veterinarian owned it I would sooner think it is a farrier tool. One jaw is beveled and the other blunt.
  22. Thomas Sevres is the name of the guy in Bavaria who made it.
  23. Bung hole auger and reamer.
  24. bobby725 is correct. It is one of the knife guards off a sickle bar mower.
  25. I thought that was you Manikin. I would have known you anywhere.
  26. Looks quite logical. Now to find the glasses
  27. My best guess would be a wallpaper stripper with a seam roller to trim wallpaper.
  28. The color and hardware remind me of Aladdin lamps made long ago.
  29. Agree with slackjack
  30. Tech rescue lists these as having been produced in the mid 1970's.
  31. There are no civil defense triangles on it so I would think it was made after 1963. I believe (but not positive) the triangles were used from 53 until 63
  32. scottvez My comment is based on what we were taught when I worked for customs in Europe. Items modified had their value based on the newest changes and not on what a similar item all original work wo...
  33. This bench has more character than some people I know. I gotta love it.
  34. Padit Working in the shops will give you an education if you are willing to learn. Years ago I worked nights running WWII vintage six spindle screw machines making bearings for patriot missiles.
  35. I will post two links below that may help in your research. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Appareil-photo-a-soufflet-ancien-CORONET-foyer-fixe-objectif-menisque-05A27-/172276176479?rmvSB=true http://co...
  36. You certainly have my interest in this item. Learning as I go. I found these but by a different company. They were listed as a Pillar Drill and Bearing Press. Thus far all of them I have found like th...
  37. I figured you wouldn't post the pictures. Those are not carvings on the doors. They are applied
  38. Any item is only as old as the newest modification. This piece has been reworked more than once looking at the pictures.
  39. Interesting. I wonder if you could post pictures of the inside of the doors? Looks like one large and two small doors in picture # 1
  40. Not a drill, what you have is an old wood working lathe. The face plate speaks for it being a wood lathe as opposed to a metal working lathe.
  41. Tess more about them?? Do it when sober so we all understand. Tessing is like up side down pic's, takes a special knack.
  42. I would agree with bobby725. It appears to have the flip down lock to maintain the bite in the tie. Although normally you used a two man unit to lift or carry the single tongs were commonly used to dr...
  43. I believe you can rule out Stickley as the maker. I am older than this chair and he died before I was born. While this appears to be a school chair, I believe you will find it was mass produced for th...
  44. I have one here somewhere that I am sure is 1960's, it has glass that is made to look like milk glass on all sides of the bottom. The top has a very large ugly lamp shade with a three way bulb.
  45. Long ago I had one similar to this. I finally went to a clamp amp meter as things progressed so I could do it all with one meter.
  46. I have been watching this post......somehow it hits a sour note with me, hehehehe!
  47. I thought it might be a dinosaur toenail without nail polish. :).
  48. Looking at the hardware I think you had the wool pulled over your eyes.
  49. I would sooner think it is an old snuff mull. My 2 cents.
  50. I used to live just north of there so it rang a bell.
  51. See more
