  1. Jhcarter, You're welcome. I don't know what your comfort level would be with removing the back to look for more clues, but I suspect that red jewel-looking thing is hiding a single slotted flat hea...
  2. dav2no1, Thanks, but that 1923/1924 May Bell trademark is proving elusive. Dave Kolars on his slingerlandguitar website provided some pretty specific dates for the May Bell trademark ("January 18, ...
  3. Hi, Jhcarter. :-) I am definitely not a banjo expert, but I don't know that we have a resident banjo expert, except perhaps blunderbuss2, who posted one that he said he made: https://www.collect...
  4. Well, I found a drawing of the steam trumpet on page 69 of this PDF (page 52 of the original document): http://www.survivorlibrary.com/library/the_locomotive_engine_and_its_development-1893.pdf ...
  5. New Castle, PA? *snip* He also says that he witnessed the "first experiment of applying steam to a trumpet. This was between 1831 and 1833," and that it was his impression "that this preceded th...
  6. It could have been a tribute to the original steam trumpet: *snip* The first whistle was a steam trumpet placed by George Stephenson on the Samson, a freight engine for the Leicester and Swannin...
  7. K45389, thanks. So it's the same patent, which doesn't really address the trumpet. Oh, well.
  8. K45389, Cool. :-) I can't quite read the embossed information on the side of the trumpet-style one, but here is a 1932 patent for a Sherburne whistle: https://patents.google.com/patent/US1890212...
  9. H.Radewan, freiheit is quite correct about the GDR. Perhaps you've forgotten that you'd already created a post for this piece a couple days earlier than this one, and on that one, I'd narrowed it f...
  10. antiquesandcollectibles38, Cool. :-) I have some relatively modern ones that were made using old coins. Button cover/cap history: https://www.buttoncountry.com/Z%20old%20site/Div4Covers.html ...
  11. antiquesandcollectibles38, Very cool, but then Villeroy & Boch usually is. :-) https://www.villeroy-boch.com/shop/newwave-caffe-teaspoon-1457140160.html
  12. danwalker, Try editing copies of the sideways pictures just a skosh. For example, trim the long sides of the rectangular images just a bit, then edit the post, and replace the sideways versions wit...
  13. Hi, Koira. :-) I was wondering why the term "Eisner glass" was giving me so much trouble on Internet searches. Perhaps you mean this?: *snip* Isinglass is an outdated, somewhat generic term f...
  14. I'm inclined to think it's a cheese knife. How big is it?
  15. Hi, Arjosolofind. :-) I don't know about that bird (eagle?) on the left, and the lion rampant on the right, but those marks in the center look like they could be the Continental Silver Company: ...
  16. Oops, page 457: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015027389363&view=1up&seq=963
  17. valentino97, Cool. :-) In an attempt to find online copies of those particular plates: https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000050287 I fell down a minor rabbit hole (page 456 of Godey's mag...
  18. ho2cultcha, Beautiful, but confusing. So far, all signs point to a pattern named "Alhambra": https://silverpattern.com/i/silverplate-patterns/alhambra-1907-by-rogers/oyster-ladle-9-12 https:/...
  19. Grannys_Glasses, Indeed, inquiring minds want to know, but some things are stubborn mysteries.
  20. Ugh. That is to say, Pyrex Butterfly Gold. It's curious what one remembers. For me, it was that one of my aunts was an early adopter of Corelle. She had a set of it in Spring Blossom Green pattern.
  21. TallCakes, Ah, third party decoration houses. Interesting. :-) However, Facebook. Ugh. Not to mention a FB page that you can't really explore without a FB account of your own. >8-0 Have I men...
  22. Cisum, Cool. :-) Pyrex Gold Butterfly: https://pyrex.cmog.org/content/flavor-says-butter-dishes-saybeautiful https://pyrex.cmog.org/pattern-library/butterfly-gold dav2no1, There are a lot ...
  23. Esscrow, That's so nice. :-)
  24. H.Radewan, This one is tougher. I ran the picture of the top of the dish through Replacements's ID tool: https://www.replacements.com/identify/china But it didn't come up with anything convin...
  25. Hi again, H.Radewan. :-) It looks like this pattern: https://www.replacements.com/china-edelstein-20141/c/20593
  26. Hi again, H.Radewan. :-) That IS sad when something like that happens. :-( That china mark looks like Plaue Schierholz, probably this one: https://www.theoldstuff.com/images/phocagallery/Plau...
  27. Hi, H.Radewan. :-) Replacements has that pattern: https://www.replacements.com/china-royal-albert-silver-birch/c/85086 I didn't see that exact cup, possibly because they don't have pictures f...
  28. Grannys_Glasses, You're welcome. :-)
  29. Hi, Grannys_Glasses. :-) Replacements dot com does have a Duncan and Miller pattern called Mandarin: https://www.replacements.com/crystal-duncan-and-miller-mandarin/c/20275 While the stem doe...
  30. Ray-Ray, here is a Sun Oak 17-B at offerup in better condition than that rusted, legless one here at CW S&T: https://offerup.com/item/detail/1304505061
  31. Hi, Debs4. :-) It looks like this is your second attempt to get help with this pattern?: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/229654-harker-1840-bread-and-butter-plate Anyway, Replacement...
  32. oldestrope, Do you mean that you couldn't open the "php" link, or the PDF file linked from there? Here's the link for the PDF: https://www.archeophone.org/rtf_pdf/Marques_phonographiques_inpi.pdf
  33. oldestrope, You're welcome. :-) Wow, so the hotel is going in a completely different direction. :-( Oh well, their loss is your gain. Yes indeed, the resemblance is striking now that I see th...
  34. Hi, Ray. :-) Here's a bit of help on editing a post to add more pictures: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/291040-a-brief-tutorial-on-adding-images-to-an FYI, somebody else posted a S...
  35. Hi. Claire3. :-) Those hallmarks of a lighthouse and "AP" on the back look like Axel Prip's Skefabrik: *snip* Axel Prip's Skefabrik founded 1924, by Axel Prip (b.1864-d.1925) as a successor t...
  36. oldestrope, Beautiful. :-) The hotel wasn't even trying to preserve these? >8-0 A modern stained glass maker makes something CRM-inspired that's reminicent of yours: https://www.boulderstaine...
  37. The_Collector, You're welcome. :-) Sorry if it seemed like I went a bit overboard, but I love Raggedy Ann.
  38. murdoch1975. Ha! I look at it now, and it doesn't creep me out quite as much. I think when I first saw it, I knew somewhere in the back of my mind that it was modeled on a real person, and it struc...
  39. ruby3kids, You're welcome. :-) Could you do us (Collectors Weekly Show & Tell) a return favor, and mark your post "Mystery Solved?" That is, if you're satisfied that the mystery is indeed solved...
  40. OK, I think I've taken this about as far as I can. A reference for the various parts of a fork: https://www.homenish.com/parts-of-a-fork/ With regard to the engraved information on the neck o...
  41. ruby3kids, A few more things: The Replacements listing for the Whittier (Silverplate, 1907) by Tiffany & CO SILVER pattern does show some individual place setting fish forks with the more usual fou...
  42. Hi again, ruby3kids. :-) Replacements has an identification tool that allows you to search their site using a photo of your piece: https://www.replacements.com/search-by-image/info I used it,...
  43. Oops. Durn stubborn code: The Ronettes - Be My Baby - live [HQ]
  44. RIP, Miss Ronnie: ???????????? ???????????????????????????????? - ???????? ???????? ???????????????? - ???????????????? [????????] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrVbawRPO7I
  45. Hi, ruby3kids. :-) It's probably some kind of serving piece, such as a sardine fork, or perhaps an hors d'oeuvres fork, e.g.: https://www.replacements.com/silver-h-h-curtis-and-co-hcu7-sterling-...
  46. BTW, I have to say that the fabric choices are interesting, because at first glance, I was tempted to say that the maker was using up scraps of leftover materials. However, when I looked again, I n...
  47. The_Collector, Did we answer your question? Your dolls are probably home-made from a kit or pattern, and no older than 1970s vintage (because of the googly/wiggle eyes).
  48. Manikin, Yes, those googly/wiggle eyes would be a choking hazard, but then so are buttons. I wonder what the statistics are from a hundred years ago for children choking on small objects like butto...
  49. dav2no1, Thank heavens. Like Watchsearcher, I was concerned for the welfare of the dog in the middle of the circle of other dogs. };-)
  50. Manikin, Thanks for weighing in. :-) I suspect that what The_Collector might have meant by "legit" was, yes, factory-made, or 'official' or licensed dolls. All of those original Raggedy Ann/Andy...
