  1. steptoe1, Google Lens turned up some near twins: https://www.catawiki.com/en/l/38718823-val-saint-lambert-on-a-half-moon-plate-6-crystal I say "near twins," because I don't think I see the Val S...
  2. A'ight, here is a description of the leather suspension system in the Concord coach: *snip* These masterpieces of construction had no equal. Concord stage were first to offer shock-absorbing tho...
  3. Ugh. Bad editing caused my snips to end up in the wrong places, but you get my drift. };-)
  4. dav2no1, It was probably relatively expensive, because it was strenuous work for the horses, and any given horse couldn't do it all day long, so you had to have a lot of 'spares.' Before I used the...
  5. fortapache, You're welcome. :-) It really wasn't that much research once I got past the initial stumbling block of all the cann*bis search result hits. That kind of took me by surprise, because I'v...
  6. spacemissing, Very cool. It wasn't until I opened the post and saw the picture of the other side of the token that I realized it was a horse-drawn trolley (I probably should have guessed that based...
  7. spacemissing, Cool. :-) Not sure why I couldn't find a patent listing for what looks to me like "92800." However, I found a near twin with another patent number on it: *snip* Keymatic Soli...
  8. Whoops, not "turpeneless, " but "terpeneless."
  9. fortapache, Whew. So glad it's "turpeneless." };-) Um whut? I hadda look it up: *snip* Terpenes are major biosynthetic building blocks. Comprising more than 30,000 compounds, these unsaturate...
  10. fortapache, Yup, a deacon's bench. So even tall people have some trouble with tall beds, huh? I recall staying at a hotel in Oregon that had antique beds, and it was all I could do to hoist my f...
  11. officialfuel, The stained glass woody is nice, but I have to tell you what my eyes immediately glommed on was that crocheted runner in front of it. <3 This is not an example of filet crochet that's...
  12. Although, the one dav2no1 linked says that it's functional on modern phone lines. Hmmm.
  13. Lata, I think you're onto something. I see that slot underneath the phone handle, too. I also see it on the one dav2no1 linked. Moreover, on the one in this post, there's that yellow 'plug' labeled...
  14. That number on the bottom ("1017437") is a British design patent from 1984 (I'm exerpting the some of the output from the UK design patent lookup interface here, because I'm not sure that the link is ...
  15. https://www.replacements.com/china-wedgwood-devon-sprays/c/113529
  16. billretirecoll, You are more than welcome. I'm glad the extra information allowed you to take a trip down memory lane. :-) FWIW, I thought I was gonna be schmart, and look up the serial number (...
  17. billretirecoll, Win, win, indeed. :-) You did a very good thing. <3 That Generations In Jazz outfit has a contact interface, but you have to install Real Simple Captcha on your computer to use i...
  18. man_of_the_woodlands, A few more tidbits. A search of the USPTO trademark database yielded a company name for that 1980s-ish Berkshire stove trademark: *snip* Owner Name: Enerex Corporation ...
  19. D'oh! As dav2no1 already pointed out, we can't edit our comments, otherwise I'd edit my previous one to remove the link he's already provide. Here are a few more links to information about UL listi...
  20. man_of_the_woodlands, I think dav2no1 made some valuable observations. It's a beautiful stove, but you could have some code compliance problems, and you'd do well to look into them. Here is more...
  21. man_of_the_woodlands, I think I owe you an apology. :-( In reading back, I realize that I used a couple of terms that you might not be familiar with, and that's understandable, because they're typi...
  22. Hi again, man_of_the_woodlands. :-) I did some more looking into this, and "unlisted" seems to be short-hand for "not listed by UL (Underwriters Laboratories): https://www.hearth.com/talk/thread...
  23. FWIW, "Berkshire" seems to be a name trademarked in the stove industry not all that far back: https://trademarks.justia.com/732/53/berkshire-73253022.html
  24. Tangoes, Interesting. The general style seems like Louis XVI (the shape of the couch legs).
  25. Hi, man_of_the_woodlands. :-) I see that you found a twin of your wood stove here at CW S&T: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/112952-old-berkshire-woodstove Google Lens finds other tw...
  26. Steptoe1, I'm not sure whether I'm following your logic. What I get from your comment is that you are indeed familiar with discogs dot com, but you don't research your own audio recordings using...
  27. jscott0363, These are adorable. I look at them, and can hear the odd little grunting noise that pugs make. <3
  28. Steptoe1, YOu do realize that you can type in a release number at discogs, and get a fairly decent idea of how rare it is: https://www.discogs.com/release/8206225-Beethoven-Vladimir-Ashkenazy-Moonl...
  29. mp.kunst, Thank you, that makes sense. :-)
  30. Steptoe1, I only recognized one song title, "Midnight At The Oasis," and that's a cover of Maria Muldaur's original: https://www.discogs.com/master/77781-The-Brand-New-Heavies-Brother-Sister
  31. Steptoe1, You're welcome. :-) It's been awhile since I've seen "Help!," so my memory was a bit fuzzy. The scene where "She's a Woman" is heard takes place in a tunnel. Eleanor Bron's character is t...
  32. dav2no1, Dude, you really did a deep dive on this, and it sounds like you're not through. You go!
  33. Steptoe1, You're welcome. :-) That video is straight out of the movie "Help!" Here's the entire movie at Mr. Peabody's Wayback machine (the song in question starts at around the 27:24 mark): ...
  34. dav2no1, Good catch. :-)
  35. Steptoe1, It looks genuine enough to me, although I could only find the Swedish version of the Parlophone cassette at discogs: https://www.discogs.com/release/13701003-The-Beatles-Help- Here's t...
  36. Hi, Wormjar. :-) Let's see, what can I tell you that I didn't already tell "linda763" and "Beasouth"? Perhaps I should be more clear about what a badged sewing machine is. Here are several diffe...
  37. Hey, Watchsearcher. :-) I presented that mysterious nubbin seen on the Naumann treadle in this post (as well as the similar one seen on a Naumann treadle at Pinterest) to the folks at the victorian...
  38. In poking around, I see that this post was preceded by an older one of the same sewing machine: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/314297-i-inherited-this-from-my-dad-when-he-pas So, yes, ...
  39. Cisum, Cool. :-) jscott0363, Yeah, who doesn't like Miss Jamesetta? <3 https://www.discogs.com/master/327968-Etta-James-Security-Im-Gonna-Take-What-Hes-Got Etta James - Security https://ww...
  40. yougottahavestuff, You're welcome again, but once again -- I did nothing more than link what Google Lens found.
  41. dav2no1, Cool. :-) That sword looks like a scimitar.
  42. dav2no1, Apparently, I don't love patents enough: I need to read the dang listings.
  43. Hi, Barbrn1002. :-) So you have a Singer Vintage Sewing Machine (VSM) that's been in your family for at least three generations now. Very cool. <3 CW user fortapache is right in that refinishi...
  44. dav2no1, Thanks. :-) Actually just googling the bare patent number with the comma in it (708,841) made it pop right up as the second hit on the first page of returns: https://patents.google.com/...
  45. fortapache, Sorry. };-) The short version: Manufacturer: Singer Model: 28K Hand Crank Portable Age: Circa 1902 Condition: Working, but hand crank has a broken bracket Here's a parts list f...
  46. Hi, CMN. :-) Ah, a new VSM post! Like water in a parched desert. };-) So cool that it's a family heirloom, too. <3 Vintage Singer sewing machines are actually the best documented of all the o...
  47. Militarist, You're welcome. :-) Yes, per that excerpt on the modellbahnforum website, it looks like it was running at least until 1966, and was scrapped in 1975.
  48. SEAN68, That's adorable.
  49. dav2no1, Cool. :-) Actually, my first impression of this was of a baboon.
  50. Militarist, Cool. :-) Google Lens found a twin: https://www.h0-modellbahnforum.de/t322234f38143-Lernkerns-kleine-Vorbilder-1.html#msg3782377 Looks like the vintage is 1940, per Google Transla...
