  1. Wow, you had a narrow miss with some of those pieces landing on the etsy store. Will either of the two domed pieces sit on top of the dished piece? I'd be tempted to say that it's a tea light ho...
  2. dav2no1, Cool. :-) Yeah, the spelling/pronunciation aluminium/al-loo-MIN-ee-um actually makes more sense than the New World spelling/pronunciation aluminum/al-LOO-min-um when you look at the list o...
  3. dav2no1, Ah, OK, I didn't read the wikipedia piece thoroughly. Yup, the Titanic: still fascinating and creeping out people 110 years later. >8-0
  4. modfather, Hmmm, resin instead of glass. That is interesting.
  5. Here's one with a patent number engraved on it: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/early-acme-whistle-name-thunderer-1851828005 Some explanation about that somewhat confusing patent number: ...
  6. dav2no1, Ya beat me to the draw. };-) Here's an old post with an English-made Acme Thunderer with some links I provided for CJ2020: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/311906-vintage-whist...
  7. CJ2020, Nevermind, I see it now: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/311906-vintage-whistle
  8. CJ2020, Let's back up a bit. You say that yours is marked made in the USA?
  9. Hi, CJ2020. :-) *snip* In 1884 the ACME Thunderer, the world's first pea whistle, was launched. Offering total reliability, control and power to the referee, it is now the world's biggest sellin...
  10. ho2cultcha, Wow. Those are some big blossoms: https://www.dutchbulbs.com/product/hanakisoi-tree-peony https://www.dutchbulbs.com/product/jitsu-getsu-nishiki-tree-peony
  11. Here's another, slightly different style: https://www.chairish.com/product/3472396/large-1890-antique-art-nouveau-iron-w-art-glass-bumble-bee-sculpture-wall-sconce-in-the-manner-of-l
  12. LadyDakota, Beautiful. :-) Here's a very similar one (but it doesn't sound like it's wired for electricity): *snip* Beautiful large bee, made of cast iron and glass. The size is no less than...
  13. dav2no1, As Grandpa Simpson might say, "Welcome to my world!" };-)
  14. A'ight. Now that I have a bit more time: This site has one of the MLI Co. desks, but at the time of the posting, the author wasn't sure whether the initials in the 'monogram' on the legs stood for ...
  15. Hi, Niece. :-) This is a pretty old post, and most of the CW S&T users involve seem inactive (the OP seems not to have been active for ten years now). CW fans of this desk got lucky when one-tim...
  16. Hi, DebABK. :-) I don't know whether you've already tried this, but you could take closeup pictures of individual coins, and then use Google Lens to search Internet-wide for them. Here are some ...
  17. icalvert, You're welcome. :-) My hat off to you if you can discern a different style of handle on the Worthpoint listing ones. All I can tell is that they appear to be relatively high profile ones....
  18. dav2no1, D'oh! I finally see the frost image of the bird on the truck hood. My head hurts now (and it ain't because of all that Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog I drank yesterday).
  19. bbmbr2000, OK, that sure sounds like it's probably antique. :-) How nice of the house owner to remember and honor her offer. <3 Some more, assorted horse head hitching post info: http://www.b...
  20. D'oh! "It might be a bit unusual in that it has a M prefix serial number, and that's a pretty small group. There are not even 300,000 serial numbers in it, and 100,00 of them were for model 28K sew...
  21. bbmbr2000, Cool. :-) Yes, it can be difficult to ascertain the age, because you can buy modern ones on Amazon. :-( Dunno whether these ones were antique or modern (I suspect modern, because inst...
  22. dav2no1, Whoops, I misunderstood. In reading back, it sounds like on that cold 2015 Thanksgiving morning when you had remotely started your truck and later came outside to discover "this" bird on t...
  23. Hi, Phumba. :-) Ya snuck in a vintage sewing machine post on a holiday. };-) Per the serial numer tables at the International Sewing Machine Collectors' Society website, serial number M169455 wa...
  24. dav2no1, So ya had a secret pal gift you with that L.E. Smith turkey dish, which you in turn passed on as a birthday gift, huh? Cool :-) With regard to working on holidays: been there, done that. ...
  25. HippieArchaeologist, What a fascinating yet sad and awful piece of history.
  26. Hi, icalvert. :-) It sounds like these cookie cutters are among the "always there" items in your family's collection, huh? I know the feeling. Given your mother's age, they could easily be a hal...
  27. ups177, Wow. So, probably it's this artist: *snip* Charles Zuck (1889-1959) Biography Charles Zuck, United States, Germany, 1889-1959. Zuck was head of the chemistry and dye department...
  28. Yeah, I did, but they were enjoyable rabbit holes. };-) Ultimately, there are no absolute rules about beverage serving pots, but the conventional 'wisdom' is that coffee and chocolate pots are usua...
  29. modfather, Yeah, thanks. :-) I knew what zoomorphic meant, and found plenty of zoomorphic Accolay pieces out there in the wilds of the Internet, e.g.: https://latelier55.com/shop/buy-vintage-des...
  30. I decided to do a bit more research on tea versus coffee versus chocolate pots, and what a rabbit hole: https://afinecollection.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/coffee-pot-1850s/ *snip* I thought the...
  31. OLECODY, No joy from the Lenox group on FB, huh? FWIW, I got bupkes when I tried searching Replacements dot com with a picture. Same thing with Google Lens. :-( Per theoldstuff dot com website, ...
  32. modfather, This was perhaps another example of meaning getting lost in text. };-) I hadn't realized that you recognized the maker of the lamp base as soon as you saw the glass insets. Although I...
  33. modfather, Way cool. :-) I love that the little color insets are translucent, and glow when illuminated. <3 A couple different sources say Accolay is French: https://www.housebeautiful.com/sh...
  34. Cisum, Cool. :-) Apparently, it was actually Dave Davies whose guitar was lost on tour, causing him to go on a impromtu, desperate search for a replacement, resulting in him finding a Gibson Flying...
  35. ho2cultcha, Yup, sometimes an image search does the trick, although (re)finding that copy at the Guelph Museums wasn't pleasant. If you do a search for that "Now I lay me down to sleep" phrase alon...
  36. Hi, Ashleydavis123. :-) I suspect PhilDMorris might be referring to this: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/from-paper-clip-to-house-in-14-trades-1.573973 Which as nutty as it might seem, it isn...
  37. ho2cultcha, Here is at least a decent link for a copy of the card, courtesy of the Guelph Museums: https://guelph.pastperfectonline.com/archive/E674874A-228D-4C48-BE5A-076308038530 Here are a...
  38. Watchsearcher, No problem. :-) I actually used a couple of short cotter pins as hinge pins to hold together a vintage bracelet. In this case, the slight springy-ness of the cotter pins worked to ke...
  39. ho2cultcha, FYI, I went back and took a look at a lot of those soft copy links. I didn't find the "Now I lay me down to sleep" illustration, but more than a few I looked at were reminders that life...
  40. Still looking. All I've found is postcards of that particular Greenaway illustration. About the Ullman Manufacturing Company: *snip* Ullman Manufacturing Company, 338 East 59th Street, New Yo...
  41. Watchsearcher, Maybe we're getting bogged down in semantics. I suspect we're talking about the same general thing, which is essentially a piece of cylindrical wire bent in half to form a narrow U-s...
  42. ho2cultcha, You're welcome FWIW. I kinda hate to cite eBay, because listings like that have a way of disappearing, but here are a couple postcards of that same image: https://www.ebay.com/itm/30...
  43. Hi, Susiecube. :-) You were right on the mark about the age. Serial number G6662882 was one of a block of 25,000 consecutive serial numbers ([G]6640371 through [G]6665370) allotted by the centra...
  44. ho2cultcha, Yup, speaking strictly for myself, that prayer scared the spit out of me when I was a little kid. };-)
  45. Watchsearcher, It's a fair question. :-) To my mind, a specialized cotter pin might work. That is, one with some kind of little decorative doodad at the top might make it easier to manipulate. T...
  46. Hi, Alexandriasfavorite. :-) Per one of the clock wonks at the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors forum: *snip* Arera was a clockmaker, based in rue de la Barillerie *snip* ...
  47. officialfuel, Cool. :-) The patent: https://patents.google.com/patent/US2187764A/en This person did a deep dive on the device: https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2019/02/22/armstrong-steerin...
  48. The Google Patent link for the August 18, 1874 patent: https://patents.google.com/patent/US154307
  49. OK, it's the underscore charaacter: https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Android/issues/10796 Underscore characters in URLs are not forbidden, but they're not recommended: https://www.seomecha...
  50. cerqueuxles, Beautiful. :-) A cotter pin would probably do the trick, e.g.: https://www.intafast.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Cotter_pin_specs.pdf
