  1. More WIRCO/Home Comfort history: http://www.maxinkuckee.history.pasttracker.com/culver_family/wrought_iron_range.htm
  2. Aardema45, Cool. A little history about Home Comfort/WIRCO: *snip* Labeled Home Comfort, this was the name of a line of stoves built by the Wrought Iron Range Company in St. Louis, MO (WIRCO)...
  3. Poor Sgt. Floyd: *snip* 1. The probability is that Floyd died of a ruptured appendix and consequent peritonitis. The ailment was not even recognized by medical science until twenty years after t...
  4. Steptoe1, Cool. I guess that little notch in the lid would permit a resident spoon, huh? Lemons and oranges motif, so presumably for either lemon curd or orange marmalade. :-)
  5. yorobby, Cool. That mark on the base is interesting in that it isn't incised, but rather embossed. There are some faint marks adjacent to the makers mark that might indicate it was created using so...
  6. billretirecoll, Cool. How is it that it took me this long to appreciate this post and its photographs? >8-0
  7. Vynil33rpm, That kind of problem has been around for a long time, although a well-t0-do person like Reid dying from it was probably somewhat unusual. Saxophonist Stan Getz also was an addict, but w...
  8. AdeleC, I love it when people solve mysteries. :-)
  9. [R]aven3766, I seem to be cut-and-paste challenged today. >8-0
  10. AdeleC, Ah, Spode. And I love botanical printed china. <3
  11. Coolerthanlife, That's so cute I can hardly stand it, and I don't even drink Dr. Pepper. :-)
  12. aven3766, You're welcome. Please understand that when I said some of the photographs were less than ideal, I wasn't being critical just to be critical (my own photography is quite poor). It's ju...
  13. Steptoe1, Cool, but I doubt that it's eighteenth century, if only because of that little "MADE IN ENGLAND" mark on the backside. That suggests it was made after the import/export law about marking ite...
  14. raven3766, Beautiful. FYI, Google Translate did not want to 'play,' possibly because the font is hand-painted (as opposed to typeset), or too stylized. Adding to the challenges, a couple of you...
  15. Albin, You're welcome. The 27, 28, 127, and 128 models are all part of a family of rather similar machines, and sometimes the difference between them is mostly a matter of size. Were you able t...
  16. AnythingObscure, I just don't know. I'd like to believe that the arc of the moral universe bends toward justice, but I suspect that there is no 'moral' universe, only a universe that is indifferent.
  17. Amillet, Cool. Well, the central image on one side is the coat of arms of Amsterdam: *snip* Motto During the 1941 February strike in Amsterdam, non-Jewish people protested against the pers...
  18. And in case that left you feeling disjointed, this should re-adjust you: Wilson Pickett - Land of a Thousand Dances (HQ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbRiM26hyms
  19. Dude, I realize that black-clad figure is probably a nun or perhaps a widow, but it makes for a creepy image.
  20. Heh: 1910 Fruitgum Company "Simon Says" 45rpm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaxSamtbnsg
  21. Where I spent the bulk of my formative years was so white you needed to wear sunglasses to protect your vision. When I was sixteen, my family relocated to the South because of my father's work. ...
  22. Vynil33rpm, So to some extent you were also sheltered. :-) I'm actually grateful that some cities have chosen to preserve at least one installation of things like separate drinking fountains as his...
  23. Vynil33rpm, Most of the traveling I did when I was young and still living with my family consisted of road trips to visit my mother's side of the family in New England. The first time I was ever an...
  24. fhrjr2, They break the glass in this day and age? Pretty terrible. >8-0 AnythingObscure, I'm sure the Buckstaff is a wonderful place these days. The race issues they had back in 1938 were not uniqu...
  25. Vynil33rpm, Ya know, I didn't take more than a superficial look at the postcard yesterday, so it was only today that I noticed the disturbing "White Attendants" language. The post mark is 1938. App...
  26. Steptoe1, You might not think that accordion-playing cat figurines are that common, but a simple search turned up quite a few variations. :-) Fortunately, more than a few of them looked very simila...
  27. Watchsearcher, So cute. And so much patience needed to do all of that.
  28. AnythingObscure, No worries. };-) All that research on the Hotel Pullman made me very aware that the Buckstaff is across the street.
  29. kwqd, Woo hoo! A mystery solved! :-)
  30. billretirecoll, Cool. :-) FWIW, 1576 was a significant year in the development of what came to be known as Delftware: *snip* The earliest tin-glazed pottery in the Netherlands was made in Ant...
  31. WMF flatware: *snip* WMF-90er-Auflage versilbert: Tortenheber WMF 90-3 1 Aufschnittgabel WMF 90-1,5 2 Zuckerlöffel WMF 90-1,5 1 Zuckerzange, kein Stempel *snip* https://www.quoka.de/ha...
  32. fhrjr2, Yup, thanks. Iwas just logging in with a reference for that: *snip* In general, a concept of "Current density" is used to determine the strength of the electrical current. This indica...
  33. Now that it's a new day, and I'm not feeling as tired: *snip* The first edition was published from 1889 to 1891 by The Century Company of New York, and was describe as being "six volumes in twen...
  34. If you were farm-raised and of a certain generation, that boiling water technique was also used at home in the kitchen. I had an aunt who would fill the tea kettle, and heat it while she was washin...
  35. And here is a cousin with a lipstick holder, and marked "F": *snip* Vintage from the 1950s Vintage Ormolu manicure caddy for the vanity table. Beautiful gold filigree with 3 components. A gol...
  36. Here's a sibling in gold tone: *snip* Filigree, Gold tone Metal Ornate gold-tone filigree nail polish holder and cherub finger rest. This bottle and nail stand was likely manufactured in the mi...
  37. Hmmm. I was wondering why one might want a holder for a nail polish bottle, but it apparently did more than that. Here's a similar one: *snip* Marked on bottom with SF (Sam Fink) Holds your nail...
  38. No wonder that Hildesheimer Rose was such a popular pattern: *snip* Hildesheim, Germany The Thousand-Year Rose The world's oldest rose is so tough it survived being bombed in World War II. ...
  39. Some Auerhahn Hildesheimer Rose dessert/pastry forks with the same references: *snip* Auerhahn orig Hildesheimer Rose 6 Kuchengabeln versilbert 100-1.5 *snip* unbenutzt - in original Verpa...
  40. Vynil33rpm, Well, perhaps more accurately, he died from peritonitis. In case anybody else wonders what the heck we're going on about in this Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band post, it's actuall...
  41. Parrotbeak, It's frustrating, because I had gotten pretty far afield adjusting my search criteria when I found those wire references about a week back, and now I can't seem to get back there. >8-0 ...
  42. Parrotbeak, Yeah, I read that plate numbers piece you've linked. I agree it's quite interesting. I just tried to find the wire references again, but I must not be holding my mouth right. That, and ...
  43. Albin, Which model you have usually can be determined easily enough from the serial number. Look that up in the ISMACS serial number tables: http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/serial-n...
  44. Y'all were busy little devils while I was taking a nap, and then going out for iced latte earlier today. https://www.discogs.com/The-Beatles-Sgt-Peppers-Lonely-Hearts-Club-Band/master/23934 http...
  45. MelissaBu, There seems to be a lot of copies of it out there, including on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/New-Century-Dictionary-English-Language/dp/B0014U1EMS Here's are some online editions: ...
  46. MelissaBu, Here's one in a slightly different color scheme, and with the eyes turned in the opposite direction. It doesn't have the mold number on its belly, but it sure looks similar: *snip* Vi...
  47. MelissaBu, It's not much, but I found this: *snip* Victoria Ceramics Production years: circa ? - ? A Japanese company that made pieces for the tourist market in the 50s and 60s. Usually marked...
  48. Vynil33rpm, Good man, you're up on this stuff. };-)
  49. MelissaBu, Cool. I believe it's sugar scuttle, e.g.: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-silver-plated-sugar-scuttle-scoop
  50. Whoops, wrong link. Do not try to contact Watchsearcher for valuation. Here's the correct link (CW S&T forum isn't for valuation): https://www.valuemystuff.com/us/start-valuation
