  1. HippieArchaeologist, Cool. https://www.cooperhewitt.org/2014/01/31/waste-basket-boutique/ Myself, I'm waiting for the day when we can have a home computer make a custom-fitted costume du jour, a...
  2. Oof, sorry about that WaPo link; it throws up a paywall. Here's one that shouldn't do that: http://ltc4940.blogspot.com/2016/03/the-curse-of-bradford-pear.html
  3. AnythingObscure, Beautiful. I remember going on a road trip that took me through Kentucky right about the time all of the Bradford Pear trees were blooming. I actually didn't know what they were at...
  4. Tootsaz, Beautiful. The flowers look like irises? That was my first thought (that it wasn't hand-made), but I found some similar pieces (with the attached eccentric dip bowl) that are hand-made: ...
  5. bobby725, That's a fascinating bit of trivia about Glauber Brass: *snip* In real life, U.S. Route 66 doesn’t go anywhere near Glauber Brass (it starts in Chicago and winds cross-country to Los A...
  6. CarolR, Beautiful. FYI, I tried running those characters in the base photograph through Google Translate on my smart phone, but it didn't 'find' anything in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. It may be ...
  7. billretirecoll, Beautiful vase, and very interesting information at that link, especially about the technique for creating acid-etched cameo glass.
  8. billretirecoll, Cool. I hope ashtray collector Simonc sees this. That brass manufacturing company bobby725 wrote about: *snip* The company was founded in the late 19th century and stayed in b...
  9. artfoot, Thanks for the William Jan Berry refresher. :-) I remember watching the biopic movie about Jan and Dean. It went into detail about the accident Berry had, and its serious affects on him (i...
  10. Heck, I just found out that I can't even access my own posts via my profile, unless somebody has commented on or "loved" one of them. That'll learn me not to "love" my own posts. };-)
  11. FYI, I was able to access this post by selecting Recent Posts.
  12. Ben, Thanks. I wasn't sure whether whether you were getting inundated with complaints about the problem. I myself noticed it Sunday evening.
  13. And in 2018!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEJN_WmZjfA
  14. Brunswick, And thank YOU. :-) Here's Dale performing his immortal "Miserlou" in 1963: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIU0RMV_II8 And again in 1996: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UmmbF...
  15. Mrstyndall, You're not alone in having this problem. I was only able to access this post via your profile and your comment on this (A tip from Brunswick. Previously, I was under the impression that I ...
  16. Brunswick, It looks like MrsTyndall is also having the problem. FYI, I contacted CW: *snip* Hello, I'm experiencing trouble viewing CW posts. The error: "ERROR :( We're really sor...
  17. Oh, and I can also now access this post by virtue of having commented on it. However, I can't access any posts that I haven't previously "loved," or commented on. It doesn't matter whether or no...
  18. Ah, excuse me. The precise CW error is: ERROR :( We're really sorry, Collectors Weekly has had a bad fatal error. We've been alerted about it and will fix it ASAP.
  19. So sad to read about Dale's passing. He was an original, and an innovator. He may have done that cover of Hendrix's "Third Stone From the Sun" as a kind of return nod to Hendrix who was a fan. An inte...
  20. northbeach, Very interesting. On the subject of adding more images here at CW: there is another way to add more images to this post. You could edit your photographs to create a kind of 'split scree...
  21. northbeach, You're welcome. You appear to know quite a bit about Tichelaar Makkum, certainly much more than I know. :-) Unfortunately, I don't know a way of adding more image-based information ...
  22. http://www.thecoachyard.com/pages/Equipment/Daylight.html https://spdaylight.net/Consist.html (The Official Pullman Standard Library Vol. 5 Southern Pacific Pre-War Cars) https://www.google.c...
  23. Rivertrout, Cool. About the 200th: *snip* The 200th Battalion, CEF was a unit in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the unit began recru...
  24. northbeach, Hats off to you for recognizing that they're probably Royal Tichelaar Makkum. I could only find one website that had more than one Tichelaar Makkum pottery mark: http://www.theoldstu...
  25. Badwolf2314, Interesting. Where did you look? As Mrstyndall noted, the case is marked Hoffritz, West Germany, so that narrows things down (for the case, at least) to a particular place and time. We...
  26. Woo hoo! OK, I'm digressing. These are not Mattel Easter Egg toys, but vintage Mattel crank-operated toys demonstrated playing recognizable tunes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPdhZjoPO-k htt...
  27. Apparently, I can't stop just yet. Here's another Mattel tin musical toy. It's not an Easter egg, but this one is also advertised as playing "Sing a Song of Sixpence" (indeed, I couldn't imagine it...
  28. jscott0363, You're welcome. I was mostly entertaining myself, but at least I managed to stay more or less on-topic. :-) I was hoping to find another demonstration video, but no joy. I did find ...
  29. Huh. Another one with a third patent number: https://www.etsy.com/listing/684837795/vintage-1953-mattel-tin-litho-easter-egg https://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=02649652&IDKey=C1F6EBE1...
  30. And somebody else has a purple-ish one that they think played "Peter Cottontail": https://www.pinterest.com/pin/25121710396233676/
  31. Aha! Here's one that allegedly plays "London Bridge": https://www.ebay.com/i/264233540566
  32. jscott0363, Very cool. Somebody else has one of the red ones, but also says theirs plays an unrecognizable melody: https://www.ebay.com/i/153402537861 And here's somebody who has one with a d...
  33. geebee57, Cool. As fhrjr2 said, it's an antique tire tool. :-) Here's a link to the full page image of the original patent, and a couple of text excerpts therefrom: *snip* UNITED STATES PA...
  34. AnythingObscure, Cool. :-) Not being a gambler myself in the normal sense of the term (really, life itself is the ultimate gamble, and the alternative isn't appealing), I had to look it up: *sni...
  35. rodster, Heh. };-) BTW, sorry about the gobbledygook question marks in the excerpt snipped from the Wikipedia piece on dessert spoons. I should have realized that the CW software wouldn't like som...
  36. References: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/263090-margaret-brown--nerikomi-agate-vase https://ceramicartsnetwork.org/daily/ceramic-supplies/ceramic-colorants/decorating-nerikomi-colore...
  37. rodster, Very cool. Dessertspoon: *snip* As a unit of Apothecary measure, the dessert-spoon was an unofficial but widely used unit of fluid measure equal to two fluid drams, or ?1?4 fluid oun...
  38. vetraio50, So beautiful. And thanks for the information about the technique. I have something similar, and will probably post it. But not this morning. Errands call.
  39. TylerTodd, Beautiful. I don't know how (or if) you display it at home, but perhaps you could put it in a shadow box with a note on the back, describing its provenance. Too often family heirlooms...
  40. fhrjr2, It could be, but it's pretty small: 15 mm (0.590551 inches) high, 7 mm (0.275591 inches) at the top, 12 mm (0.472441) at the bottom, and it weighs 1.76 (0.06208217 ounces) grams
  41. AnythingObscure, Beautiful. You can still get matches in boxes, but they don't look as classy as those.
  42. Indianabottlecollector, I'm linking that bottle PDF here for your consideration: (Page 96) *snip* The Standard Seal Hood was made by the Standard Cap & Seal Co., Chicago, Illinois. These ...
  43. rocker-sd, AnythingObscure, That makes sense about the little box.
  44. ho2cultcha, Cool. Hey, count me in with those six year olds who like chop plates. I only like my various servings mixed when I do it intentionally. };-) I think I found a sibling: *snip* W...
  45. Well, the USPTO database is back up again, and it looks to me like the one of those previous six patents that mostly closely resembles the one in that August 1923 Ladies Home Journal advertisement is....
  46. On the other hand, perhaps it's a dresser top caddy/organizer, although in that case, I don't know what purpose the little box would serve.
  47. yougottahavestuff, YMMV, but I didn't actually find it all that amusing that B.C. creator Johnny Hart named his only human female characters "The Fat Broad," and "The Cute Chick." It was even less ...
  48. Vynil33rpm, Indianabottlecollector, I was still idly wondering this morning about that August 1923 advertisement for a milk bottle cap, and a very simple Internet search immediately turned up a Googl...
  49. AnythingObscure, Cool. Yeah, those rests look wide enough to accommodate cigars.
  50. bobby725, Hagar the Horrible's wife Helga: that's one of the ones that was nagging the back of my brain pan. yougottahavestuff, Do you mean what is the name of the female character from B.C? That's...
