  1. Steptoe1, You're welcome. :-) It could have been made by somebody who does it for a living, and they could be in India, but nowadays, they could be anybody, anywhere.
  2. Watchsearcher, Yes, other species can suffer from too much consanguinity. In humans, it's probably a bit over-hyped as a dangerous thing, but if you keep interbreeding with your kin, you're playing...
  3. BTW, whenever I think about dogs, cats, and their litters, I think about this line from "Cool Hand Luke": *snip* Arletta: You know, sometimes, I wished people was like dogs, Luke. Comes a time, ...
  4. Steptoe1, Cool. :-) I don't know its origins, but it might be relatively modern, and possibly made by an amateur, albeit one with some experience (those hangman-style knots and the interesting clus...
  5. Watchsearcher, That is such good news about Uno's birth mother MissKitty. :-) Close to four hundred dollars is not an insignificant sum, and I realize that not everybody would be able let alone wil...
  6. Jfoster, Still poking around the Internet a bit, and found a few interesting tidbits: *snip* Before 1883 the Miller Brewing Company placed their beer into kegs for distribution. The technology o...
  7. Ms.CrystalShip, It's not necessarily that the mother cat abandons kittens, although sadly that could be the case with kittens that are very sickly. :-( If a kitten is four to six weeks old, the mot...
  8. EWC, Wow. I've seen modern sinks designed for narrow spaces, but I have never seen a sink quite like that before. The term "Inca gold" seems like a bit of a red herring, in that the most popular...
  9. crewnail, Cool. :-) Yeah, that embossed patent information does limit the age of the piece. I thought I'd take a peek into the USPTO, hoping that June 1891 was a relatively quiet month. Maybe it...
  10. Jfoster, Thanks. :-) It sounds like they've got their work cut out for them: https://www.thegazette.com/crime-courts/iowa-gives-new-life-to-rivers-by-removing-over-20-dangerous-dams/ https://...
  11. JackieJae, You're welcome. :-) FYI, volume one of the 1894 edition was also digitized: https://archive.org/details/harperspictorial00guer Plus, volume one has a list of the illustrations in b...
  12. Jfoster, Intriguing. :-) Where was this river dam?
  13. ftretta, I read back, and did a bit more poking around to see what I could find. The state of Arizona didn't require a driver license prior to 1927: https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/summary95/dl230...
  14. Hi, ftretta. :-) I can no longer recall all the details about these tags, but there was a legal case: *snip* Kerby v. State of Arizona *snip* Civil No. 4615. Filed April 5, 1945. ...
  15. Bitsnbobs123.a. Pretty. :-) I'm definitely not an expert, but if you expand one of the images, especially the one with the signature, you can see an overall pattern of small circles/dots. Between t...
  16. Hi again, JackieJae. :-) I went back to the e-copy of the 1894 edition, and found the second plate showing the destruction of the Fairfield. It's on page 422: https://archive.org/details/harpers...
  17. The Chattanooga Campaign on pages 556 and 557 (and there is definitely information printed on both sides of the sheets): https://archive.org/details/harperspictorial02guer/page/556/mode/2up I co...
  18. Woo hoo! Mr. Peabody's Wayback machine to the rescue with an e-copy of the 1894 edition: https://archive.org/details/harperspictorial02guer/mode/2up
  19. JackieJae, Cool. :-) dav2no1 is right. If these sheets were originally pages in a book, there might be printed information on both sides. You might be able to compare yours against editions of t...
  20. GusT, Cool. :-) dav2no1, I think you may have nailed it. As it turns out, fortapache posted a similar one here some years back: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/227530-what-is-it-real...
  21. Ugh. "Stories" should read "Storeys."
  22. BTW, that might not have been the best link for leopard slugs, because it makes it look as though they're present in only a handful of U.S. states: *snip* United States (present in 46 of 50 stat...
  23. This must be my newest obsession. >8-0 I poked around at the website for Escuela de Arte de Sevilla, but didn't see an easy way to ask a question. Perhaps that's wise of them, as their history goes...
  24. It might be a leopard slug: https://idtools.org/id/mollusc/factsheet.php?name=Limax%20maximus Slugs are not toxic to dogs per se, but they may harbor a parasite (lungworm) that's definitely dang...
  25. I found that Reddit thread in which a CW user asked for help with their A. Balero print: https://www.reddit.com/r/ArtHistory/comments/zbhsf/could_use_some_help_identifying_some_art_spain/c6508rq/?c...
  26. Well, I seem to have come full circle on this. A year ago, CW user Pamdivalerio posted an A. Balero work, looking for more information, and mp.kunst found that same todocollecion dot net "Street in...
  27. D'oh!: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/63448-mid-century-painting-from-spain
  28. dav2no1, Yeah, I noticed that somebody at the link I provided had a Balero print with the same name (Street in Paris). Interestingly, your link calls it "OIL ON AMSTERDAM STREET CANVAS. FRAMED. OR...
  29. Hi, Sokarmagrly. :-) It's not much, but I found this: *snip* Artist: A. Balero Nationality: Spanish [feminine] Date and Place of birth: 5/30/1920 Cadiz Studied at: Escuela Superior de [...
  30. charmsomeone, Cool. :-) It's actually model MT-2475. I couldn't find it in the Radio Museum, but you can still get a manual for one: https://www.replacementremotes.com/hitachi/mt2475-tv
  31. dav2no1, Cool. :-) Watchsearcher, My family had one as well: https://patents.google.com/patent/US2469797A/en https://patents.google.com/patent/US2498018A/en
  32. It is in fact all they eat. Thank you for feeding them. :-)
  33. wickencrafts, Monarch caterpillars. <3 Yeah, they sure do like milkweed. :-)
  34. vintagelamp, D'oh! I failed to read later comments before adding my own. I see now that kqwd had already cleared up the ambiguity about Ron(ald) Howard. >8-0 I agree with you about Jeremy Brett. Hi...
  35. Daisy1000, Beautiful. :-) I think I found a twin of your Mexican bracelet: *snip* Beautiful Modernist Mayan Calendar Sterling Silver Mexican Vintage Bracelet Bracelet measures aprox 8 1/4 in...
  36. Tosan, Cool. :-) Gillian, Woo hoo! Excellent find on that patent listing. Yes, it could be used for a number of card games, which is probably why a game name wasn't spelled out in the patent. ...
  37. Whew. Thought I was losing my weak little mind: Not Opie, but rather Ronald Howard, son of Leslie Howard: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0397580/
  38. Gah, I am not having a good proofreading day, am I? >8-0 Anyway, here is another of those little hexagonal Roseville planters: *snip* ROSEVILLE POTTERY planter in matt green and actually illu...
  39. Oops, I think I transposed my Street View links. I imaging that you get the general idea, though. };-)
  40. Reeling, Cute. :-) I found a sibling: Roseville Arts & Crafts 4" Matte Green Hexagonal Planter & Liner. This Roseville arts and crafts matte green hexagonal planter and liner stands 4" tall. ...
  41. They did a nice job converting the roof top into a usable space, too: Adam Hats Lofts 2700 Canton St, Dallas, TX 75226 https://goo.gl/maps/R9Gm4UrcwJQx1QQc7
  42. Ya know, I thought about this a bit more, and realized that they weren't stacking the deck unfairly with those requirements of both celebrity picture identification and the celebrity's name being in t...
  43. kwqd, Hatters are still around, although they aren't as plentiful as they used to be: https://www.millinersguild.org/guild-news/2020/8/1/the-care-and-cleaning-of-vintage-hats https://www.milline...
  44. dav2no1, They stacked the deck a bit, didn't they? It wasn't enough to be able to identify the celebrity in the picture, the depicted celebrity's name had to appear among the six listed.
  45. fortapache, Yeah, that plurality issue can trip people up, including me. Per the article dav2no1 linked earlier, the name of the company was "Adam Hats Corporation."
  46. Hi, Bisou. :-) Beautiful. If those casters are original to the chair, those alone would make it 19th century, because the furniture caster hadn't been invented until 1876: https://patents.goo...
  47. I realized that the link I messed up the other day probably was missing only the last digit, so how hard could that be to figure out, huh? Voila, here it is (the celebrity choices are JACK HALEY, L...
  48. REFERENCES 20210604: ======================================================== HOW MUCH IS MY SEWING MACHINE WORTH? ======================================================== Because this question ...
  49. fortapache, You're welcome. :-) I am by no means an expert, but I do watch a lot of vintage movies. The person in the picture struck me as familiar-looking, but I couldn't immediately put a name...
  50. Hi, linda763. :-) If your machine is indeed like the one in this post, Bernadette identified it as having been made by the Davis Sewing Machine Company: http://ismacs.net/davis/history_repeats_i...
