  1. Collectables59, https://blog.discogs.com/en/how-to-estimate-the-value-of-a-record-collection/ It can take a lot of elbow grease, depending on how many pieces there are.
  2. I found a ton of clip patents: https://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=01798867&IDKey=0A02356C677F&HomeUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fpatimg.htm https://pdfpiw.uspto.gov...
  3. Heather75, Cool. I can't speak to the Cordelia figurine, but the Hummels should be fairly easy to identify. Look at the bases. They'll have numbers that identify the specific Hummel figurine model....
  4. Collectables59, I documented my own CD music collection using an obsolete Microsoft tool that allowed me to export the ripped recording information to Excel-compatible files, so that wasn't too unp...
  5. Collectables59, No doubt there are other websites, but discogs dot com is a good place to start, because it's not only a database, but a marketplace. You can find out about most recordings and rele...
  6. Whoops sorry, the specific release I linked earlier doesn't show the barcode on the back side, so your friend's version may be a later issue.
  7. Collectables59, Cool You didn't show us the actual vinyl, but this appears to be the specific release: https://www.discogs.com/Phil-Collins-Hello-I-Must-Be-Going/release/667272 About the albu...
  8. Brunswick, I'm sorry to hear about your medical issue. Hopefully, it will turn out to be nothing serious.
  9. antiquesandcollectibles38, Beautiful. Google Translate actually interpreted the bottom two characters in that seal, so apparently they're not seal script characters, but rather conventional modern ...
  10. MadamMisty, Here is the interface for looking up pre-1976 patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office: http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/patimg.htm Replace the zeros with the pate...
  11. burnerbob4u, Cool. As others have already pointed out, it's difficult to assess the chair because of the way you photographed it. Perhaps you could post some new photos. Start off by finding a c...
  12. https://patents.google.com/patent/US1798867A/en
  13. Ms.CrystalShip, Patents? (keramikos lifts obsessive head): https://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=01798867&IDKey=0A02356C677F%0D%0A&HomeUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fpa...
  14. Hot-Estate-Sales, That IS cool.
  15. Parrotbeak, Fascinating about dress clips. MadamMisty, FWIW, there's a wikihow on cleaning rhinestone jewelry. I've never tried it myself: https://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Rhinestone-Jewelry
  16. kwqd, This piece makes me a little sad. First, because a major U.S. glass maker went out of business. Second, because the employee who got this particular souvenir might be dead. Still, it's a ...
  17. Weandocin54, You're welcome. The fact that the characters inside the little squares differ may be because Andrea by Sadek dealt with a lot of different suppliers, and the chops may reflect that.
  18. Wilsonlaura, You're welcome. I realize the translation was a bit rough in spots, but you could probably read in between the lines. Good luck finding the original owner.
  19. volunteerhelper, You're welcome. Also, I believe the style of the pearls, real or otherwise, would be called baroque or freshwater.
  20. volunteerhelper, I believe it's Pierre Cardin, e.g.: https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/tokyo-diamond/item/10011144/
  21. jdrax, Cool. Something went wrong with your post, because the sole picture is a thumbnail size. You'll need to edit your post, delete the existing picture, and then add another one. As to the...
  22. A weaving technique: https://www.thesprucecrafts.com/odd-count-tubular-peyote-tutorial-4111923
  23. Steptoe1, You're welcome. Yeah, those last couple of links were just a demonstration of the various techniques. I've worked beads into crochet pieces myself, but nothing like a woven necklace. H...
  24. kwqd, It could well be a jewelry bag. AnythingObscure also thought it might be a storage bag for silver, china, or even shoes. I favor the shoe storage theory, because of the attached twin comp...
  25. Wilsonlaura, Cool. *snip* This machine is Gritzner-Kayser Model 116a, also known as the Gritzner VZ (Vera Zwei). It was marketed in the US as the White All Stitch Zig Zag. *snip* http://n...
  26. Or even crochet: https://www.prairieflowerbeads.com/intermediate-classes.html
  27. Ah, a technique: *snip* Seed beads can be worked with strings too; unlike the simple stringing, this seed beaded bracelet is braided using Chinese crown knot. *snip* https://www.pandahall....
  28. Steptoe1, Beautiful. That woven technique is something I've seen before. It also looks like the pearls might be seed pearls, or perhaps freshwater pearls: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/...
  29. Manikin, It does have the look of something that has been altered. The big question in my mind right now is something Watchsearcher brought up: are the ends of the two appendages truly sewn shut, o...
  30. Watchsearcher, Hmmm: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Iniki I suppose I might have regarded something like that as an adventure when I was younger, but I dunno. I'm pretty much a land mam...
  31. Collectables59, It certainly can be, but it can also be an addiction. >8-0
  32. Apparently Georg Jensen is a 'house,' and the specific designer for those wishbone cufflinks is Maria Berntsen: https://www.lauritz.com/en/auction/maria-berntsen-for-georg-jensen-wishbone-moderne-m...
  33. Collectables59, You could be on to something. I didn't find this exact cufflink, but I did find some similar ones by Georg Jensen: https://www.1stdibs.com/jewelry/cufflinks/cufflinks/georg-jensen-s...
  34. Weandocin54, Ugh. Don't ask me how I managed to hit enter before I was through writing. Anyway, I found other far-east Andrea by Sadek pieces. The actual ideogram/logogram characters seem to vary, ...
  35. Weandocin54, I think you may have nailed it. I found other far-east
  36. Brunswick, Love me some Elvis rockabilly. https://www.discogs.com/Elvis-Presley-With-The-Jordanaires-Return-To-Sender-Where-Do-You-Come-From/release/1165485 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PU5xx...
  37. Watchsearcher, I can imagine. It's an amazing place. I actually had the opportunity to live in Hawaii many years ago, but I already knew myself too well, and turned it down. Two or three weeks in H...
  38. Watchsearcher, Ha! Yeah, it makes sense that you could have seen something like that in Hawaii.
  39. P.S. Yes, it is beautiful, and modern people might be aghast that something so beautiful could be used for 'slop,' but if they stop to think about it, even modern bathroom accessories are designed to ...
  40. deegee2u, OK, thanks. Good to know. :-)
  41. deegee2u, I was wondering whether you'd ever heard back from the auction house about this item. Ever since you first brought up the term slop bucket, and I then found that detailed description at K...
  42. Watchsearcher, Good point about the gathered ends not necessarily being sewn shut.
  43. Watchsearcher, So you've seen the split pants in Hawaii, huh? Yeah, I probably would have been slack-jawed. :-) You could be right about thirteen inches being too small even for a newborn. Here's a...
  44. greendog, This one?: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/258683-f-eggeman-and-co-toledo-ohio-late-1880
  45. It seems possible that the item in this post is a pair of kaidangku for an infant. The ends of the legs might be closed, because the infant isn't even crawling yet, let alone walking. Toilet-training,...
  46. kristinaiulo, Interesting about the bulk of the sewing being done by machine, and only the slit edges hand-sewn. That does suggest some kind of retrofit. That Wikipedia piece about split pants and ...
  47. Weandocin54, It is unusual, and it could be a modern piece. That makers mark on the bottom could still be a seal chop, though, because they've become fashionable. There are websites out there that ...
  48. Stevenj84, I'm sorry that I misunderstood. Tone doesn't always come across in text.
  49. AnythingObscure, Hmmm, a shoe bag. Could be. Women's shoes were smaller a century ago (because their feet, along with everything else, were smaller).
  50. Tis a puzzlement. Watchsearcher's idea about a garment for a newborn baby is possible. However, it apparently was more usual for all babies to be dressed in gowns, because of the diapers issue. ...
