  1. Jschwerling, You might want to try contacting the Rosenthal museum: https://www.porzellanikon.org/en/information/contact-us/
  2. Ms.CrystalShip, See links above.
  3. fortapache, What I see looks like little floor protector cups, e.g.: https://www.amazon.com/Furniture-Durable-Surfaces-Protect-Protectors/dp/B000PAYZ3S/ref=asc_df_B000PAYZ3S/ But, yes, that migh...
  4. Hi, Jschwerling. :-) Rosenthal made hundreds if not thousand of different patterns and unfortunately, without an actual patent number or at least a patent date, finding out more about the patent is...
  5. Hi, Lorrie. :-) Beautiful decals. Per the International Sewing Machine Collectors' Society serial number tables (which they got directly from Singer who endorses them through linkage), serial nu...
  6. fortapache, I was thinking it was more Emmy Slattery's style. };-)
  7. Deck12, Beautiful. :-) It sounds like you already looked up the serial number on your machine (it looks to me like EE112637). Your decal set looks like Paperclip Decal #07: https://www.singer...
  8. AnythingObscure, Junior! :-)

  11. sydne21, Beautiful. :-) Collectors Weekly Show & Tell is not a forum for valuation. Here is some advice on that subject: http://ismacs.net/sewing_machine_articles/how_much_is_my_sewing_machine_w...
  12. BTW, that is a gorgeous bird in your profile picture. What kind is it?
  13. Evergreen-4884, You're welcome, but it was Alina who did it. :-) I actually had translated the name on that Belov Vladimir Andreevich biographical sketch yesterday, but let go of the information af...
  14. Alina, Yeshche raz spasibo tysyachu raz!
  15. More from that russianamericancompany dot com site that Congcu originally linked: *snip* Kholui artists did not make the transition to lacquer painting as quickly as those in Palekh and Mstera. ...
  16. Spasibo, Alina :-)
  17. Here's a similar work by Berdnik: *snip* Russian Lacquer Box "Ballet. Giselle" 768 - Kholui hand painted Russian Lacquer Box painted by Artist Berdnik size 8,3 x 6,5 cm *snip* https://picc...
  18. Oops, sorry, Burdik should be Berdnik.
  19. Evergreen-4884, It looks like Alina nailed it. The border on the image is different, but the main image is very close: (Transliterated/translated via Google Translate) *snip* Casket Kholuy...
  20. Gutenberg dot net au to the rescue: *snip* "Oh, Rhett, how lovely! I do so want a house of my own. A great big one!" "Then at last we are agreed on something. What about a white stucco w...
  21. Whoops, I see from Congcu's link that there is a whole section of Kholui lacquer boxes: https://www.russianamericancompany.com/kholui/
  22. Evergreen-4884, Beautiful. :-) I downloaded a copy of your fourth picture to my smartphone and Google Translate gamely tried to translate/transliterate the typed text, using Russian Cyrillic: *s...

  24. Alicethecluz, I don't know whether you were looking for help on the various attachments in that box, but it would really take a separate post with them all laid out on a plain background to identify t...
  25. fortapache, Actually, the "Swiss Belle" room decor isn't quite as loud as some of them, but because of the general look of the Madonna Inn, it did make me think of Rhett Butler's quip. };-)
  26. Hi, schweizerjenny. So, your husband's grandmother's machine, huh? That's so nice. :-) fortapache is quite correct about your machine being a Singer 15 and the approximate date of manufacture being...
  27. fortapache, Um, Cool? };-) In looking for pictures of the rock waterfall shower, I stumbled upon this article that just made me wheeze. *snip* The New York Times visited in 1982 and called it...
  28. Alicethecluz, Woo hoo! I see that you added some pictures successfully. :-)
  29. Alicethecluz, A couple more things about adding pictures: Some people want to have more than four pictures in a post and accomplish that by editing their pictures to join multiple images into a sin...
  30. mikeigotit, You're welcome. :-) Let me expand on what I wrote about making a pair of Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls as a joint project with my mother. First, it was a purchased pattern (just as Maniki...
  31. Alicethecluz, The way to add more pictures probably varies a bit based on the interface you're using (that is, the operating system and hardware, e.g., Windows desktop, Apple tablet, Android smart pho...
  32. hoppy1375, You're welcome. :-) I'm not actually an expert, merely an old, retired person with free time and an Internet connection. As to valuation, that's something not done here at Collectors ...
  33. Hi, hoppy1375. :-) Per the International Sewing Machine Collectors' Society serial number tables (which they got directly from Singer who endorses them through linkage), serial number Y761387 was o...
  34. mikeigotit, Cool. :-) Not literally Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls (because just for starters, Ann doesn't have a candy heart), but they do look home-made, perhaps even entirely hand-sewn (some of the ...
  35. Hi, Alicethecluz. :-) I'm glad that you love your vintage sewing machine and want to learn how to take care of it. We here at Collectors Weekly Show & Tell like people who like old things, probably...
  36. Collectables59, Nope, I'm a mere mortal and was perusing this post with interest to see what I could learn. Congcu has already told you far more than I could have done. };-)
  37. Hi, Angelathehoot. :-) The reason why you can't find much of anything using the serial number in your first picture is that it pertains only to the motor: 230-250 VOLTS 0.3 AMPS CAT. NO. BAK 4-...
  38. I imagine Curly and Shemp weren't too crazy about it, either (the Stooges got cheated by their management). Larry died at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital. Thank you, Jean He...
  39. Vynil33rpm, *gasp* It was Tinky Winky in the library with a purse! You got some rare animal of a stereo promo copy? All I could find at discogs was a mono promo copy: https://www.discogs.com/...
  40. AnythingObscure, Cool. :-) Yeah, as beat-looking as it is, my brain immediately said "Photograph processing kiosk." OK, what my brain actually said was "Fotomat," but Vynil33rpm said it's "Fox P...
  41. Abdul__Qadir8879, You're very welcome. };-) Thank you for posting your Liuligongfang art glass piece for us all to enjoy.
  42. Gardner, Wow, your great-grandmother's sewing machine? :-) Beautiful cabinet. At a glance, your machine is part of the VS1, VS2, VS3, 27, 28, 127 and 128 family of singer sewing machines (that l...
  43. Poetrae, Cool. :-) Yup, unlike most vintage Singer sewing machines, the so-called Featherweights have their serial numbers on the underside. You're right on the money with regard to its vintag...
  44. Abdul__Qadir8879, Beautiful. :-) CW S&T actually provided me with my first knowledge of Liuligongfang art glass. Somebody else posted a piece of Liuligongfang art glass, but they didn't know what i...

  46. Which leads me inevitably to the Who: The Who Happy Jack Video From the 1979 movie "The Kids Are Alright" Distributed by New World Pictures https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VV28YBOUx2E
  47. coffeeridge, Interesting motif. The cylindrical shapes make me think of thimbles.
  48. Not to say that I don't want one, say, for instance, Old Mrs. Possum or Happy Jack: https://magwv.pastperfectonline.com/bycreator?keyword=Pairpoint+Glass+Company&page=4
  49. fortapache, Ya had me at Pairpoint. };-) I see the amazing TallCakes has already linked that article in which I learned the significance of 1974 (the year Pairpoint issued their first cup plate).
  50. Vynil33rpm, Cool. :-) *snip* Rob7 January 5, 2014 edited over 7 years ago referencing Newport 1958, CD, Album, RE, RM, MCD-1014 From Mosaic website: "When Duke Ellington set out to make a li...
