Just old and finally have time to go through things and figure out what I have. A little of everything I would say.

  1. Well if it has "Made In" on it then it was made after the tariff act of 1931 when they started the country of origin mark to be written that way. From 1951 to 1955 it would have been marked "Made In W...
  2. I didn't bookmark the link I found it on, will try again a bit later. Have chores to do right now.
  3. I would say very pre Castro. The back of this is for address only and no message which makes it 1907 or earlier.
  4. I found one like this in the box advertised out of Spain for 45 EUROS.
  5. Vynil33rpm you know, the rooms with padded walls.
  6. Where did you find these listed as error coins????? What site shows them as errors??
  7. What a handsome rogue he is. I bet the ladies never called him a blockhead.
  8. I would suspect this is a tourist item. Others I have seen of a woman with a baby in a sling while doing chores were called maternity figures. You should find 100's of them on eBay and the internet.
  9. It is the Kurhaus in Wiesbaden, Germany. My oldest son was born in Wiesbaden. Kurhaus is the town convention center but I suspect this item is not from a festival but a souvenir from the Kurhaus as it...
  10. I am glad you pursued it and found out. Sometimes an appraisal is great and other times not so much but it can put the mind to rest to an extend. I have used the appraisal service several times and on...
  11. I kind of like all clocks especially the odd and unusual, although I know little about them. Still fun to look and learn. Thanks for sharing this with us.
  12. I have one that I have been researching on and off as I have time. Opening the trap door in the back you should be able to see the clock works. They will be stamped. From the stamp I have learned that...
  13. They still make them today and they have a folding handle and come with the spare tire and jack in most cars.
  14. Gotta love this. My mother in law taught school for 40 years and retired in 1980. When she moved to Florida she brought along the pencil sharpener she had on her desk along with her brass school bell....
  15. Made after 1965, they were new issue when I went in the service in 67 and still used when I got out in 77.
  16. I agree with anythingobscure and will add if it was found with sewing stuff they probably used for for a pin cushion or lint catcher.
  17. Post a pic of the bottom markings please.
  18. I was always told the bird is a goose, hence the name goose neck. If it is weighted on the bottom it is a desk lamp. I never knew Peerless to make a wall hung goose neck. I have several goose necks ar...
  19. If you click this link you will see modern ones. https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/816770082390081484/
  20. I would say it is an old coffee bean roaster like they used about 100 years ago. The design and position it lays fits perfect.
  21. The answer to the puzzle is right there on the front. The badge has a W with an E inside one wing and Co inside the other. Possibly Westinghouse or even Western Electric. I'm not familiar with that ba...
  22. Just a comment and my two cents. Looking at the last picture I would think this is antler as opposed to bone. I have turned both on a lathe and the bone tends to have a marrow opening down the center ...
  23. I would suspect this was made in a foreign country. For example, right now it is the year 2076 in Nepal. They don't use the Gregorian calendar like most other countries.
  24. I wonder if this will spin around freely? If so and you do it fast does it light up? The bottom portion looks like some type of magneto. The base may actually have a purpose other than just being a we...
  25. If those dimensions are correct then it could remove the lid from an antique milk can.
  26. They appear to be specialty go - no go tools that would be used by quality control to insure the item is within specs.
  27. I would say this was made and sold for the commercial market between 1989 and 1997. BUCK completed their contract with Phrobis and began selling these commercially with their brand name on them. Actua...
  28. The coin is easy to find but this is a fake when compared to a known original. The very first post was right about it being Alexander but the coins were gold and totally different back side.
  29. That first picture needs a couple of crank gas pumps out front and it is home sweet home.
  30. Sure, that writing says clothes changing screen custom designed for Won Hung Lo. He was quite the guy I guess.
  31. should read show doors or drawers, typo, my bad
  32. This is a commercial picture. Post the actual item you have and she any door or drawers that open, how they are constructed. Is that a mirror or some sort of picture top center? Are the metal drip pan...
  33. When Manikin gets on here she will know.
  34. PS: Don Levison was mentioned as a watch collector in the book, "Buying Time". Perhaps researching him would provide some insight.
  35. It has the smaller second hand at the bottom so I would expect it is somewhere after 1920's. I had a couple of smaller watches like this I posted in another forum and it seemed the second hand was a f...
  36. Looks like a fairly modern generic chair. If it is unmarked then you will probably never pin it down to a manufacturer or time frame when it was built. I see no marks on the bottom, look under the arm...
  37. I can't agree with your assumption that it is a chisel for stone work. I have no idea if you ever used one but the item shown wouldn't survive the constant pounding. It would break at the thinnest poi...
  38. Bobby725 stated it best when he said, what's left of it. Don't plan on fries and a drink with that order or even the order.
  39. Looks like an old rug and blanket beater
  40. Newfld Another thing we have in common...birds. The wife and I were bird breeders for years. We also rescued birds in need of a forever home. I am down to five birds now. Three Quaker parrots which ...
  41. You just lost me. Why would it look African if it is from Nepal?
  42. My wife would have loved this. She collected Dolphins and loved them. Her last wish was to be placed in the Gulf of Mexico to swim with the Dolphins. Easter Sunday 2016, I honored her last wish. Needl...
  43. I tried enlarging the photo's but they are both blurry and upside down. It isn't this web site, you need to dump them to a computer, orient them properly and don't for get to save them at the end. The...
  44. If it was actually a lion it would be Lion Passant. It dosen't look right from what I can see of it.
  45. Those dimensions rule out foot rests and point to being a camel saddle. The padded bottom brace underneath I missed before as I was looking at the colorful design and nail decoration. More than possib...
  46. Aly, these are quite similar to Moroccan camel saddles but without dimensions I will rely on my original post that I found by googling a bit.
  47. I wonder how hard you looked in your research? Cardinal games is still in business and will probably be willing to answer any questions you may have. eBay is loaded full of their games old and new bec...
  48. You didn't provide any measurements and saddle ran through my mind. It is by all means possible these are miniature display saddles for people to view before ordering. Kind of like a salesman's sample.
  49. Not sure this is right but take it as my 2 cents. Lets assume the two rounded ends are handles, setting one with handle to the left and the other with the handle aimed right. Looks like Victorian...
  50. You are actually lucky. The longer I live the more sure I am I wasn't born....I was had! ;)
